ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the history of immigration as a political issue in the U.S. Objections to Irish immigrants in the 1850s and Chinese immigrants in the 1880s are noted, and the restriction of immigration to Western Europeans and Latin Americans by the Republican Party in the 1920s is discussed. It is argued that immigration is good for the U.S. and that concerns about illegal aliens are merely xenophobic demagoguery.
