According to A History of Asian Americans: Strangers From A Different Shore by Ronald Takaki most of the Filipino population in America during the Great Depression married white women.
TAKE THAT YELLOW FEVER!
American history books never mention that immigration quotas prevented Asian women from immigrating to the US. Asian immigrant men married black, white, or Native American women. Most of the descendants of these unions today don’t even know about their Asian heritage.
It was never the quota that prevented women from emigrating to the US during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Most women of men who came to this country stayed home due to socio-economic reasons, though there was political hyperbole during the time of the gold rush where any woman traveling in steerage was suspected of being a prostitute and many articles were written on this. To avoid that misconception, wives of affluent merchants often took first class tickets on trans-pacific trips. Hope that clears up for you.
