People have been coming through Mexico for quite some time, but my point stands, it is decreasing.
IIRC Coolidge just signed what Congress passed and he didn't care much for restricting immigration. If the alt-right was around back then they would have supported a primary challenge against him. He appealed to Irish and Italian immigrants in order to get elected in Massachusetts. When he was elected President, he argued in favor of racial equality, and was probably one of the last Republicans to win the black vote. He also expanded voting rights to native Americans. Sounds like the typical "cuckservative" to me.
Note that his successor did not do this, and we all know how that ended for the GOP.
