Subsequently, one may also ask, which group was included in the naturalization law of 1790?
The first statute in the United States to codify naturalization law. Alternately known as the Nationality Act, the Naturalization Act of 1790 restricted citizenship to "any alien, being a free white person" who had been in the U.S. for two years. In effect, it left out indentured servants, slaves, and most women.
Subsequently, question is, what did the Naturalization Act of 1870 do? An Act to amend the Naturalization Laws and to punish Crimes against the same, and for other Purposes. The Naturalization Act of 1870 (16 Stat. 254) was a United States federal law that created a system of controls for the naturalization process and penalties for fraudulent practices.
Furthermore, what was the outcome of the 1790 Naturalization Act for Native Americans?
This law limited naturalization to immigrants who were "free white person[s] of good character". It thus excluded Native Americans, indentured servants, slaves, free blacks and later Asians, although free blacks were allowed citizenship at the state level in certain states.
