My father’s family came from Sweden in 1787; my mother’s parents came from Eastern Europe in 1897. Except for three or four Native Americans I have met in more than 30 years of teaching, everyone I know, including my current students, most of them from Mexico and Central America, is from somewhere else. Without its immigrants, America would not be the place that most people in the world want to come for opportunity. When most immigrants come, they make the country stronger and their families stronger.
