  • Immigration is the permanent settling in a foreign country. It can be done singularly but has mostly been done in masses. An example of immigration is if a man from Africa decides to moves to America permanently.

      I thoroughly enjoyed reading your story and learning more about you. Your writing completely drew me in. I appreciate your sharing of the injustices your family, particularly your uncle, encountered in attempting to immigrate to the US.

      I look forward to reading more of your posts on Youth Voices.
