Abstract [en]

This thesis examines Jews and Catholics views on immigration to the United States in the late 19th century. It is qualitative analysis of how immigrants and immigration is treated in two different magazines, The American Jewess and Catholic World. The findings are then put in the context of contemporary nativist ideas. This thesis states that both The American Jewess and Catholic World are, principally, in favor of immigration and do not want to restrict immigration at that time. Catholic World is somewhat more open to the idea ofdiscussing harder immigration laws but the overall tendency in both magazines is that immigration is not a problem to the United States. Immigrants, on the other hand, are seen as more of a problem, at least the new immigrants. Both magazines dwell upon, o some degree, the problems that this new immigration has brought. Their solution is however, not as nativists should argue, closing of the borders but rather enhanced naturalization processes. The magazines both deals with nativism, not always direct, but indirect and both of themtakes a clear stand against it.
