The United States is known as a nation of immigrants, but as Erika Lee shows, an irrational fear and hostility toward immigrants has been a defining feature of our nation from colonial times to the Trump era. Widespread anxiety over Irish Catholics turned xenophobia into a national political movement, while Chinese immigrants were excluded, Japanese incarcerated, and Mexicans deported.
