"Donald Trump's mainstreaming of anti-immigrant politics in 2016 was a mere reflection of the ugly norm of the past. Jones traces the dual foundation of open immigration for whites from Northern Europe and the racial rejection of slaves from Africa, Native Americans, and eventually, immigrants from other parts of the world. He unearths the link between white supremacy and the US environmental movement, and also uncovers startling links between anti-immigrant hate groups and the Republican Party, which have left lasting marks on present-day policy"--Adapted from the book jacket.
