Abstract

Donald Trump’s 2016 election victory and subsequent presidential administration have been marked by increasingly harsh rhetoric against immigrants, especially those from Latin America. In new research, Betina Cutaia Wilkinson and Natasha Bingham examine the attitudes of African Americans living in the South towards immigrants. They find that when Southern blacks feel powerless, disadvantaged and sense that their group is being alienated, they are less likely to support greater levels of immigration and more likely to view immigrants as potential rivals.
