The Way We Are

I think an undertold story in this country, overshadowed generally by WWII and Vietnam and the Civil Rights movement, is how we went from being a nation of immigrants, to being a nation of not immigrants, and then back to being a nation of immigrants again.

Obviously our immigration policy - both legal and how we deal with undocumented residents - is far from perfect, but at least we let people in.
