Immigration & a Thank You.

Published by cck at 6:44 PM

Leaving work this evening, I was listening to NPR - in particular, to Richard Rodriguez as he discussed the multitude of jobs immigrants do. Jobs that, let's face it, most Americans would simply not do. He said that "Thank You" were the two words that had not been spoken during this entire debate. And he would be absolutely right - we have discussed giving and taking and the burden of illegal immigration - but we have not paused to reflect on the gifts that immigrants have bestowed upon us.
I really recommend you listen to the piece. It was very good.
