Ours is a nation of immigrants, many of whom contribute greatly to our society. For example, the Swedish Royal Academy reports that just since 2000, immigrants to the United States have been awarded 33 of the 85 Nobel Prizes in Chemistry, Physics, and Medicine. Apple and Amazon were founded by the sons of immigrants. If you wonder what’s in your wallet, Capital One is the brainchild of an immigrant, too. And I wonder if there’s a single American who has never eaten something whose recipe entered our country along with Asian, Caribbean, or Central American refugees. America prospers as its cultural diversity grows. For America to accept immigrants is not only a good thing, it’s the right thing to do.
