Its a wonderful story. However, those immigrants in the 1890's to 1920’s were more secular. For example, up until 1964 Lebanon was a mostly Christian nation. However, the bulk of the immigrants from Syria and that part of the world are bringing religious extremism with them. Unlike the 1890–1920 cohort, the 2017 cohort is not coming to show gratitude, they are coming to spread Islam and Sharia through “hijra”. It is very unfortunate that the humanitarianism of the West will ultimately lead to massive social unrest in the West — as we are seeing as I write.
