This week the highest level of leadership in America made this statement -
And I want to say that I agree.
We need people who will come into this country and start new businesses.
We need mothers who have the courage to travel hundreds of miles through dangerous country to keep her kids safe.
We need families who bring the power and priority of community into our neighborhoods.
We need people who bring diversity to art, music, business, and culture in our cities.
Great people who have braved and overcome difficulties are the kind of great people we need in America.
Great people. This is, indeed, who we need coming into our country.
Immigrants are not drug-dealers, criminals, or rapists. Immigrants are philanthropists, teachers, doctors, engineers, scientists, and professors. They are the kind of great people we need in this country.
