IMMIGRATION TENSIONS,  1880–1925

 

Immigrants were seen as economic threat and job competitors.

 Response to new groups with unfamiliar cultures, languages, and religions. Commonly, ethnic characteristics persisted well after arrival with the aid of community groups, organizations, churches, etc.

 

Resentment over the large numbers of newcomers, despite the high rate of those

returning to homelands (overall one-third, but one-half or more among specific groups)

and the establishment of immigrant/ethnic enclaves in the United States.

 

 Pseudo-sciences exaggerated links between culture, initial levels of intelligence, “races”

(nationalities).  Americans’ fears about immigrant loyalties, ties to homelands, seemingly

low rates of citizenship, and perceived failure of Americanization efforts.
