How is immigration a positive form of exchange for the USA but as the same time criticized and badly viewed ?

Immigration is in first an exchange of culture.

In fact, the United States has acquired, through immigration, an overwhelming multiculturalism from other countries. Indeed thanks to its past as English, French and Spanish colonies and because of immigration the usa are a mixture of different cultures.

The Indians did not build a wall to prevent the settlers from coming and they did not impose their culture on them and never asked them to learn their language!
