Pecorella ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Immigration to New York City Balancing myth with reality [Burns’ tape on the Emma Lazarus] – the way we “want” to be seen. When immigrants arrived, they encountered – the way we are: 1. Difficult, intrusive, and tense official welcomes at Clinton Castle and later at Ellis Island. 2. Resentment from those who had preceded them – economic fears. 3. Resentment from those who had been here a while -- cultural fears. 4. Negative stereotypes to characterize them and their cultures. 5. Ethnic conflicts in their neighborhoods and especially at their places of work. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Models of “Nativist” Reaction to Immigrants: [See accompanying file] ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - Models of Immigrant Adaptation Behavior: 1.
