As the established anti-immigrant movement in the United States attempted to derail a push for immigration reform last year, a number of racist incidents revealed the bigotry that too often comes into play with immigration-related issues.

ADL has compiled a list of the most egregious examples of racist incidents in the anti-immigrant movement in 2013.

In 2013, both national and local anti-immigrant groups espoused racist and nativist rhetoric, allowed known white supremacists to attend their events and disseminated articles by extremists. Anti-immigrant politicians also expressed nativism and one scholar resigned from an organization after civil rights groups exposed his racist past after he co-authored an anti-immigrant study.
