An excellent Immigrant story

I thought I would share this article because it speaks volumes on the good immigrants do, since we mostly hear about the bad.

What Immigrants Bring to America

By Olúfémi Táíwò

Immigration opponents often don't understand how varied are our stories. Even immigration supporters sometimes treat us as charity cases who should be forever grateful for being taken onto American shores. The institutions that employ us also seem to expect exceptionally audible and constant thanks for having jobs in this land of opportunity”.

“Anyone with a good job and prospects, immigrant or not, should probably feel grateful in this rocky economy. But on the whole, immigrants contribute as much as the American-born. Yes, we have good reason to come here; but don't forget that you have equally good reason to welcome us”.
