    • Dear Alexander,

      I am interested in your post because this is a topic that is close to my heart. I think immigrants are important to our society and our country is built on immigrants.

      One thing you said that stood out for me was: “our American creed is to make sure immigrants feel safe in this country” I think this is intelligent because it is the truth about America. We need to take drastic measures to take care of everyone in the country.

      Another statement that caught my attention was: “ we, as Americans, help each other, no matter the race or gender, then this country truly is America” I think this is sad because our country is truly becoming divided.

      Your essay reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I worked with a woman who was from Mexico and was here illegally. She told me her story and how she would be dead if she stayed in Mexico. This made me realize how lucky I am to be born in America. This also made me realize the importance of immigrants because they want to protect their lives.

      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I think you have really good ideas. You have a voice that needs to be heard!
