My great grandfather came to America through Ellis Island. His son would go on to join the Army Air Core in WWII and to start his own construction company in the Midwest, in doing this, it gave him a sense of pride in being an American. Immigrants are what make America the great and diverse nation it is today. We should be celebrating our diversity by allowing those who wish to become Americans and further the diversity of our culture, the opportunity to become American citizens. Under the current administration, immigrants would not have that opportunity, the RAISE Act would make it difficult for many to come to the USA legally and would increase the rate of illegal immigration.
