Green Card Stories: The Human Face of the Immigration Debate
At a time when the immigration debate threatens to boil over, Americans are losing the ability to talk about a phenomenon that has defined who we are as a country - a nation predominantly of immigrants from all walks of life, from all corners of the earth, who have fueled America's success with individual talents. Immigration tells our essential story: E pluribus unum - Out of many, one.
