Digging Deeper: Immigration Lesson Plans and Exploring History

What’s happening at the border is not a new phenomenon. The United States is overshadowed by a history of racism, particularly in the realm of linking new waves of immigrants to the spread of disease. During the 19th century, the United States accused Irish immigrants of spreading cholera, or, what they termed the Irish disease. In the 1880s, Chinese immigrants were labeled as carriers of smallpox and the plague, which galvanized the movement that supported the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act.
