Why Immigrate?
   Dislocation caused by economic growth
   Threat caused by economic growth
   Opposition to newly passed anti-socialist laws
    After 1890…
   Immigrants may have returned to Germany
       • Italy gained territory (Bogos, Hamasen, and
         Akale-Guzai) as well as ammunition.
               • More stability for citizens



                      Fewer economic risks meant
                          fewer immigrants.
