yeah i know i just don't get what the question is asking me and i've been looking but can't find anything
You have to make sure you are clear on the meanings of all the words in the assignment. Nativism seems to be the focal point, and it isn't a common term, to be sure.
Take a look at the second of the two definitions at the right; then check out several from the links at the left.
Now ... your ideas??
Nativism means anti-immigrants.
Your question wants you to explain why Americans were anti-immigration in those years.
yesi know but i don't understand weather it's asking to say what those nativist would do to the imigrants or if it's telling me to say why nativism developed
It's telling you to explain what nativism is and why nativism developed.
oh ok thanx
