Nearly every American is the descendant of immigrants, some recent and some in the distant past.  As a people, Americans are intensely proud of their nation’s immigrant legacy and the idea of their ancestors as “huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”  Yet throughout the history of the United States, American have periodically denounced particular immigrant groups as undesirable, dangerous, and unassimilable.  Join historian Edward T.
