This nation was built by immigrants, people whose courage generally far exceeded their means. They arrived by sea on both coasts and not all came willingly but all contributed mightily to this wondrous experience this nation has been and God willing it will continue to be. To think that we no longer need immigrants from across the globe is to deny our history and, i believe shortchange our future. Lady Liberty faces out to the open sea for a reason. Not all who come to this country wish it well, we must “sort” through those applicants and remembering that courage is far more important than means, welcome our new would-be citizens.
