My grandfather was born in Poland. He immigrated to the US as a young man. He never learned to speak English. He had 14 children, two of whom died in the military during World War II. He built cars in Detroit and was a member of the United Auto Workers.

Any hostility to immigrants seems very un-American to me. I define American as welcoming and inclusive.

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