The colonial masters were right. Creating a class of educated subjects who would sooner or later covet the governmental and civil service posts which their masters now had, was a recipe for putting said masters out of a job.
It wasn't Wilson's Administration that finally restricted immigration racially and set quotas. It was the Harding and Coolidge Administrations that signed those bills into law. Wilson was something of an idealist who had great faith in the power of education and administration even if most of the country didn't. He had been, after all, a President of a university (Princeton) before he was President of the United States.
