The Founding Fathers of America opposed mass immigration

1 min read

Mass Immigration was completely anathema to the Founding Fathers. Globalists have no claim to their legacy.

 

John Dickinson 1788, "Where was there ever a confederacy of republics, in such territory, united, as these states are... in which, the people were so drawn together by religion, blood, language, manners and customs, undisturbed by former feuds or prejudices?"

 

John Jay 1787, "Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people--a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government."

 

Alexander Hamilton 1802, "The influx of foreigners must, therefore, tend to produce a heterogeneous compound; to change and corrupt the national spirit; to complicate and confound public opinion; to introduce foreign propensities. In the composition of society, the harmony of the ingredients is all important, and whatever tends to a discordant intermixture must have an injurious tendency."

 

George Washington 1796, "Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government."
