True

Prior to the passage of the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882, there was no federal immigration law limiting who could migrate lawfully to the United States, and thus all migration was legal. The Chinese Exclusion Act, which was the law from 1882 until it was repealed in 1943, created the first legal restrictions on migration to the United States, and thus resulted in the first illegal immigration as well.
