The Tudors and a possible motive for unrestrained immigration

I was just indulging in the guilty pleasure of watching last week's episode of The Tudors and a bit of dialogue struck me. An English monastery is being raided of its treasures, and a young man asks the priest, "Father, who are these men?"

"Bretons, from France. Huguenots," the priest answers. "Perhaps Mr. Secretary Cromwell felt that he couldn't trust Englishmen to destroy their own heritage and besmirch their own faith."
