Immigrants have been exploited for their labor, however used as scapegoats for problems that arise in the country as of ways to reform the political, economic, and social institutions. Anti-immigrantionists feelings have risen in the country on these minority groups.
An example of such explicit racial discrimination is on Mexican and Latino immigrants who make up about a third of the country's immigrants. They are targeted and harassed by legal policing institutions, whereas the rest of the immigrant population of the English and Asians are not. Anti-immigrantionists arguments include damaging and harming impacts on immigrants on social services, educational systems, and labor force.
These anti-immigrant arguments have been from nativists or racists in that they ignore statistical analysis of populations and the contributions that immigrants' labor has brought to America, including the wealth and productivity of the country, the tax base and the welfare programs, and the educational system.
