(first shoots of the season)
That immigrant culture that has renewed us … has been at the core of our strength. I don’t know when immigrants became the enemy.Condoleezza Rice
former Secretary of State
speaking at Duke University
I've wondered about this for some time. Unless one is Native American, we are all immigrants or from immigrant stock. Some of our ancestors came willingly. Some did not. It is likely that Condoleezza's did not.
Some came legally. Some did not.
Perhaps I would feel different if I lived nearer a border. Perhaps not.
What's true is that we need reform--of laws, procedures, and most of all...attitudes. The attitude adjustment is needed across the board, no doubt...on both sides of the border.
