What was one difference between “old” immigrants and “new” immigrants in the 1800s? “old” immigrants were protestants and jews. “new” immigrants were catholics and jews. “old” immigrants settled among the native population. “new” immigrants formed their own neighborhoods. “old” immigrants were welcomed by the native population. “new” immigrants were met with hostility. “old” immigrants often had property and skills. “new” immigrants tended to be unskilled workers.
One of the differences between the new and the old immigrants was the following: the new immigrants were illiterate and poor, were unskilled workers and did not speak the same language since they came from countries like Italy, Poland and Russia. Culturally they were different from the old immigrants and it became harder to get used to and assimilate life in America. For their part, the old immigrants came from England, France and Germany, believed in democracy, and were culturally similar to the citizens of America, so it was easier for them to assimilate their way of life and get used to their customs.
