Asian Americans are Americans of Asian ancestry. The term refers to a panethnic group that includes diverse populations, which have ancestral origins in East Asia , South Asia , or Southeast Asia , as defined by the U. Census Bureau. Although migrants from Asia have been in parts of the contemporary United States since the 17th century, large-scale immigration did not begin until the midth century. Nativist immigration laws during the s—s excluded various Asian groups, eventually prohibiting almost all Asian immigration to the continental United States. After immigration laws were reformed during the s—60s, abolishing national origins quotas , Asian immigration increased rapidly.
