Immigration: The U.S. once viewed Europeans who were non-British as undesirables in the 1880s and early 1900s

Many Americans are descendants of immigrants from Europeans. Europeans were not always not welcome to become Americans, if they were of non-British heritage. Some Europeans were even called “undesirable” immigrants.

Today, in the United States there are many Americans who are now treating new immigrants in the same manner done to their European grandparents, great grandparents and other ancestors.

Below are just a few examples of how the U.S. media discussed the topic of immigration in the 1800s and early 1900s.

Many of these “undesirable” immigrants have made the United States a greater nations. Are today’s “undesirable” immigrants potential future great Americans citizens?
