Print page

immiThe United States was made by immigrants. As the United States grew so did the number of immigrants. Immigrants are always looking for better opportunities to make more money or to just have a better future. The United States has always been a home for people from different countries around the world.

We the people are an IMMIGRATION NATION.

Immigration interests me because I can relate to the people that are suffering to improve their lives.  I was pushed from El Salvador because of the violent gang situation; it wasn’t that good. I was pulled to the US to have a better future, learn the language and find a career.
