Summary
Who should be allowed to enter the United States and call themselves an American has always been one of the nation's most divisive issues - and it continues to be so during the 2008 presidential election. In this program, Simon Schama looks at the bitter conflict over immigration, tracing its roots to the founding of America. The early settlers were themselves immigrants but they saw America as fundamentally a white and Protestant nation. Schama examines the key events that challenged this view: the annexation of parts of Mexico in 1848, the immigration and subsequent expulsion of the Chinese in the late 19th century, and the massive emigration from Eastern Europe during the 1920s
