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.
