In the article, “Should America Still Welcome Immigrants?” I learned that immigrants are what keeps this country running. Immigrants have to accept the challenge of leaving behind their old lives to build new ones in America. This is something very difficult to do because they literally come with nothing and have to deal with the barrier of a forieign language. Immigrants help their new communities by caring for the sick and elderly, teaching students, building homes, and most importantly feeding the nation by picking crops and opening restaurants. Without immigrants the nation would not even exist. 

I think this is a very controversial topic. This topic goes in two ways you either welcome immigrants to America or don’t. I believe immigrants make this country, they are hard workers and always help out anywhere they can. Most of these immigrants are picking crops for the nation to eat. The jobs they find are never easy and come with lots of risks but they never give up. They care so much about their families and just want to have a better life overall. 

Do you think immigrants should be welcomed to America?

Dear Litzy
I am amazed by your post about “Immigrants in America “ because immigrants are one of the reasons why this nation is up. It also talks about the benefits of having immigrants in America. One sentence that stood out to me was, “I learned that immigrants are what keeps this country running.” I think this sentence is true because They work at high rates and make up more than a third of the workforce in some industries. Thanks for your writing I look forward seeing what you write next, because this is an important subject that has been going on for decades.

Dear Litzy,
I am interested in your post because it highlights the benefits of welcoming immigrants to America. I like how you mention that immigrants “come with nothing and have to deal with the barrier of a foreign language.” This is important because I think that many people do not understand the difficult challenges faced by many immigrants. Your post is a good reminder that immigrants provide many benefits to America. Thanks for your post, and I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have shown insightful ideas in this post.
