Nativist Movement in America

The Nativist Movement in America: Religious Conflict in the 19th Century by Katie Oxx. London : Routledge, 2013.

By the early nineteenth century, immigration had become a key controversy in American politics. Fueling the dissent were several staunchly anti-immigration groups, dedicated to maintaining what they understood to be the vision and spirit of the Founding Fathers. Afraid of the moral and social impact of foreigners, the Nativist Movement formed to advocate for stricter immigration laws in order to maintain the supposed homogeneity of America. Of particular concern to the Nativists were Roman Catholic immigrants whose commitment to the Pope distressed Protestants.
