Project description

Explore the reasons for a pervasively anti-immigrant sentiment in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Focus on at least three immigrant groups, their motivation (generally) for coming to the U.S., what they were hoping for versus the reality of their new lives (the discrimination they faced), groups who reacted negatively to their continuing flow into the country (the forms discrimination they practiced), and the kind of pressures put upon them in order for them to assimilate.
