"WE are ALL connected to an immigrant in some way. None of us would be here if it was not for an immigrant coming to the United States at some point in time. We are a country built and founded by immigrants, so nobody is worth more or less than anybody else. We all have one thing in common. WE are ALL American."

Immigrants help the United States economy by:
1. taking low paying jobs that nobody else wants.
2. paying billions in taxes each year.
3. boosting earnings for American workers.
4. creating their own jobs.
5. creating their own businesses that create jobs for American workers.
