Lots of people that emigrated to America from Europe went because they had extreme religious views. And many of the first people to arrive got on very badly because they had no idea how to look after themselves in the new continent - lots of them starved or got nasty diseases, and the rest were only saved by the native people showing them what to eat and how to farm.

And as for the Spanish killing off the native North American peoples - maybe they did for some of the cultures of Middle and South America, but I do believe the push West for land was responsible for conveniently getting rid of the native people - that wasn't the Spanish. It was far far later than that.
