Final Answer :
C
Explanation :
The Western Hemisphere was not subject to the country-by-country immigration quotas imposed by Congress in 1921. These quotas primarily targeted countries from Europe and Asia, aiming to restrict immigration from those regions, while countries in the Western Hemisphere, such as those in North, Central, and South America, were exempt.
