Americans may have had concerns about competition for jobs, strains on social services, cultural differences, and potential security risks. There were also instances of nativism and racism, leading to prejudice against certain immigrant groups. Additionally, some feared that immigrants would not assimilate into American society and would therefore threaten American identity and values.
