Immigrants pass the poor

 

With the help of the spokesmen for the poor, we have come to believe our poor are ‘trapped’ in poverty. Yet we know that poor immigrants can get ahead.

Many immigrants come from countries where they’ve seen: squalor, illiteracy, disease, civil unrest, war, hundreds of homeless kids on the streets, low status for women, and corruption we could never imagine. Some have had relatives taken away. Some have left or escaped through great hardship, been preyed on by smugglers and pirates, and lived in miserable refugee camps.
