Best Answer

The original non-native Americans were IMMIGRANTS. Many of the people living in America during the American Revolution were immigrants. The British Colony of America was often used by Britain (and other European Countries followed the same practice) of unloading their criminals, by banishing them to the "Americas." Like Australia, America was loosely used by European Nations as a "Penal Colony."

How were the lives of American citizens impacted by immigrants after 1880?

A quick answer would be to point out two main things: 1) immigrants helped to rapidly expand the country by providing a source of cheap labor or by having large amounts of skill or wealth; 2) immigrants generally faced large amounts of discrimination from regular American citizens who were distrustful of their purposes. While laws and attitudes have change a lot in 130 years, immigration provided cheap labor for manufacturing during the industrial revolution and now does for the service industry, which enhances the American economy (and thus improves the lives of all citizens) by lowering the costs of goods everyone buys. Some Americans were resentful that immigrants took factory jobs and service jobs in the large cities. Some felt that immigrants caused unemployment. Because immigrants often do not complain about labor conditions, union workers sometimes felt that immigrants were union-busters.
