“In America, immigrants are treated like second to last citizens. They don’t want us but they need us.”
Queens, NY
I am an Immigrant. I am proud to be one. I was born in Barbados and I came to America in the Summer of 1989 and although I miss home, I don’t regret it a bit. One of my greatest memories of America is seeing snow. I was so amazed to see the snow fall from the sky and stick to the sidewalks and the cars. I came to America for a change. I left Barbados because I wanted more money and help. I didn’t want a better life, I needed it. If I stayed in Barbados, I would have never been exposed to the diversity of life and the different types of people in it. In America, immigrants are treated like second to last citizens. They don’t want us but they need us. I believe that many people think immigrants are going to steal their jobs but realistically, that’s hard to happen. Immigrants have to work four times harder than regular Americans to find jobs, especially female immigrants. Americans should be re-educated on the hardships of the immigration process. It would also help, if we had the president on our side.
