My mother in law was born in what is now AZ. When she was born it was not a state. She was a very conscientious person and voted in every election. When she was 65 and applied for State benefits, she was told the I D she had was not valid. It took months to straighten this out and finally, her marriage certificate stated she was born in AZ. My family was from Southern Italy and I don’t know how my maternal grandfather was able to come to the U S. I have not been able to find anything that documents his arrival. The Native Americans are the only real citizens of this country, all the rest of the population came from another place. Let’s stop this attack on immigrants, once and for all.

Let's Talk

It's time for a new conversation about immigration in America, and it starts with us.
