Immigrant Song

Kind of a weird time to be an immigrant here in the US – the new president repeatedly described immigrants as unwanted criminals, and worse, during his campaign, and it seems to have resonated across the country. Kind of ironic as British and French settlers were unwanted immigrants in the eyes of the Native Americans, presumably. Furthermore, immigrants work hard, pay taxes, tend to commit less crimes, don’t get any representation, and they add a lot to the economy too. Here’s an interesting FastCompany article about some massive American companies, founded by immigrants.
