A very interesting article published on the Immigration Policy Center explains one of the most common misconception about the impact immigrants have on the American economy. The article explains how immigrants are not the cause of high unemployment and low wages among minority workers, and how the immigration does not cause unemployment.

Did you know that you can add your name to The American Immigrant Wall of Honor, so that your legacy is celebrated by future generation? Located at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum, right next to the Statute of Liberty, the wall has over 700,000 names inscribed on it so far. I just found this information to be very interesting for those interested to leave this kind of legacy for the future.

“This was the secret of America: a nation of people with the fresh memory of old traditions who dared to explore new frontiers, people eager to build lives for themselves in a spacious society that did not restrict their freedom of choice and action.” – President John F. Kennedy (1958) (“A Nation of Immigrants”).
“Immigrants today come from all corners of the world, representing every race and creed. They work hard. They practice their faith. They love their families. And they love this country. We would not be a great nation today without them. But whether we remain true to that history and heritage is a major challenge.” – Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (2008) (Introduction to “A Nation of Immigrants” – essay by President John F. Kennedy).
