Julia Young of Catholic University discusses how economic interests competed with nativist fears in America's debate over immigration, how the effort to secure the US border with Mexico was originally out of concern about Chinese immigrants, and how the Irish and Italians once evoked the same fears many express over those crossing our southern border today.
