ABSTRACT
The article discusses the status of immigration in Boston, Massachusetts in the late nineteenth century and the establishment of the Immigration Restriction League (IRL) in 1894. An 1880 census showed that 63 percent of Bostonians were either immigrants or the children of immigrants. The founding of the IRL was part of a national wave of reform during the 1890s.
