Immigrants Can Contribute To America


To the Editor:

Immigration has been in the news of late. Here are the historical facts: America is largely made up of immigrants. My grandmother came to America from Denmark in the late 19th century. She saw the Statue of Liberty for the first time. Also, 40% of Fortune 500 companies have been started by immigrants.

In this day and age, immigrants are being denied access to America. These are people who look different and are of another religion.

Let us not judge these people who can be, or are, good citizens. Remember, we are a country of immigrants.
