Statistics do not tell the story of immigration. People do. Since its inception, this nation has been continually infused with the energy of newcomers. Yet their assimilation has seldom been smooth. The challenges we face today are not new. Only the stories are.
MyImmigrationStory.com was created to show the human side of immigration. It enables U.S. immigrants from all nations to share their immigration stories in their own words. With the recent heated rhetoric over immigration, it’s time to look beyond the media stereotypes and recognize our common humanity.
If you are a first generation immigrant, or have a relative or friend who is, please visit the site and share your story. You can also read the stories of others who have chosen to make this great nation their home. www.MyImmigrationStory.com
