Virtually every American comes from immigrant roots, whether they came by choice or by force.  Some came here because of fear or coercion.  Others came in great hope of a bright future.  

I believe we should welcome immigrants to our great country with open arms and cheerful hearts.  I believe we should encourage them to find their way in America just as our ancestors did.

However, just as I would not invite someone into my home that I don't know and hope for the best, I don't believe we as a country should blindly allow any and everyone across our borders without knowing something about them.  

I also believe that immigrants should come to America wanting to be Americans.  Bring their culture and their heritage to be a part of their history that shapes their new lives as they become American with those of us who are already here.
