The Irish-Americans possibly did not like Great Britain
Large numbers of immigrants fought in the Civil War, particularly the Irish.
Getting drafted into the army
I'm puzzled by the question. German women did not 'oppose World War 1'.
German immigrants of course opposed the war due to not wanting to go to war with their homeland. Many still had families in Germany and feared for their families and friends lives that were in still Germany. the majority of Irish immigrants supported the war, but they wanted to side with the central powers because many hated England. Both wanted to either stay out of the war altogether or become allies with Germany.
Many in the north believed the south had the right to be independent if they chose to be. Main opposition for the war came from the Copperheads in the Midwest and Irish Catholics in New York. German and Irish immigrants opposed the war and were especially angry at fighting a war for blacks, who they considered rivals for jobs. They believed that if they were drafted into the Union, the blacks would get their jobs, this was a big reason for the Draft Riots.
A lot of Irish came during that period, along with european and asian immigrants
At the beginning of World War I, both German as well as Irish immigrants wanted the United States to remain neutral. However, after hearing about war atrocities and the sinking of the Lusitania, Germany began to be viewed as the villain. Germans, although most only had loose ties with their homeland, were fearful they would be targeted for Germanyâ??s actions. The Irish, were adamant about not helping the British Empire in any way because of its refusal of Irish independence.
They were lynched.

The use of Irish immigrants as workers, the use of veterans of the civil war.
The war increased opportunity Mexican immigrants but limited it for Japanese immigrants.
How did it not.
New York riots. The Irish immigrants resented being conscripted.
It was morally wrong and an imperialist war
None. There was no Irish Army during the First World War, as Ireland was not yet an independent country.
False - and many immigrants, primarily Irish, arriving in Northern ports were immediately enlisted into the Union Army
Caused violence in New York, when new Irish immigrants were drafted into the Union army. In the South, one of the most respected Confederate Generals was the Irish-born pharmacist, Pat Cleburne.
Yes, especially in the North where the Irish and other poor immigrants fought because of the Draft that was instituted in the North. Immigrants really fought on every side, but mostly in the North because the North had a draft.
