Abstract. In the framework of the critical discourse analysis by the material of the leading information channels "CNN" and "BBC World", the British editions "The Daily Mail", "The Guardian" and "The Daily Express", the article studies the semantic-rhetorical means of the discursive reproduction of negative attitudes towards immigrants. It is found out that the power elites, using the mass media, construct public opinion with regard to immigrants favourable to the power bloc, form and support negative images of "aliens" as representatives of other races, ethnic groups and cultures.
Key words and phrases: -, , , , , , critical discourse analysis, social power, immigration discourse, discursive practices, discursive reproduction, language of politics.
