Question and answer
What were some of the reasons the Know-Nothings gave for opposing immigration into America?
The Know Nothings said that the immigrants of the 1850s were unlike all previous immigrants. They claimed that the new immigrants resisted assimilation and held American institutions in contempt. [ A Know Nothing newspaper editorialized that new immigrants were “determined that neither themselves nor their children shall ever conform to American manners, American sentiments, or the Spirit of American Institutions.” New York was described by the Know Nothing author as “more a foreign than an American city.”13 Know Nothing propagandists described the immigrant threat in apocalyptic terms. ]
