Immigration of African, Hispanic (Latino), and Asian Americans

Immigration to America has been the dream of many people since the days of the Pilgrims.  While virtually all of the early immigration to America came from Europe and Africa (through slavery), the number of new immigrants from Asia, Central, and South America has increased dramatically.

Concerns about terrorism, over-population, and the cost of social services has led many Americans to slow down the flow of immigration - legal or illegal.  On the other hand, corporate America frequently complains about the lack of skilled labor and has been lobbying for increased limits on granting work Visas.

It is important for all African, Hispanic (Latino), and Asian Americans to understand immigration laws and regulations, and to let our elected politicians know that immigrants have always and will continue to contribute to the economic and cultural prosperity of our country.
