America is a Nation of Immigrants

1- I am the son of an immigrant. My mother came to the US from Bolivia when she was 18. She put herself through college, …

2- … she learned a new language, and she created a better life for herself. That’s entrepreneurship, a foundational part of what makes America great.

3- Topics like immigration are not binary. The world is not binary. It’s nuanced. Using a hammer to fix it only creates unnecessary pain.

4- I am appalled by the sweeping actions being taken regarding immigration. We are creating more problems than solving them.

5- Complex issues need to be tackled with a long term mindset, otherwise we get caught in impulse driven short term actions.

6- There is instant gratification (for some) but it doesn’t solve the underlying issue. Leadership is having the courage to think long term.

7- America is a nation of immigrants. We can (and must) be able to have security while staying true to our core values of freedom and equal rights.
