    The Irish built this country with Scott's, Germans, English, Dutch, and Italian immigrants.

    This is an asinine "what if" question.

    America would be a third world.

    The mob would still exist, especially during prohibition. Anglo gangs existed too, as well as Irish gangs, Jewish gangs, and rural moonshiners and bootleggers.

    Indians would still control large swaths of land. Perhaps all of it.

      Asker has blocked me, but the question made me wonder: in the late 1800s, were there ANY nations that had no poor people?

    Until 1965 Immigration Act, the overwhelming majority of the immigrants came from Europe.

    There was no welfare state back then.

    Illegal immigration was very minimal.
