Immigration and the American Dream

"My fellow Americans, this is an amazing moment for me. To think that a once scrawny boy from Austria could grow up to become Governor of California and stand in Madison Square Garden to speak on behalf of the President of the United States that is an immigrant's dream. It is the American dream." Arnold Schwarzenegger


"Thus, biologically speaking the American people are literally only half an immigrant people." Samuel p. Huntington


"The great social adventure of America is no longer the conquest of the wilderness but the absorption of fifty different peoples." Walter Lippmann

"Without comprehension, the immigrant would forever remain shut--a stranger in America. Until America can release the heart as well as train the hand of the immigrant, he would forever remain driven back upon himself, corroded by the very richness of the unused gifts within his soul." Anzia Yesierska
