Immigration reform has almost always been a thorny issue in America. Though it is popularly believed that America was born of a nation of … arrival of immigrants from other parts of the world was never really something that sat comfortable with them. That is why they passed immigration and naturalization laws restricting the rights of Asians, Jews, and Catholics in the 19th century. The Exclusion Act restrict the rights of Chinese … (and social) threat (McCaffrey), and Mexicans were almost always treated poorly—particularly via the Bracero Program (Calavita).
