Dakota Trumbull - Define American

Dakota Trumbull

America is the place I was born in, and the place I grew up in. I have had many great experiences though my sixteen years living here. I still remember playing in my backyard on the swing set that my dad put together one summer night. I think all Americans have one common goal in mind. They would like to provide for themselves or their families, so they can continue living and having a better life. Immigrants are just people who are trying to do that same thing. Sometimes they have no choice, but to come to the US and find work. My family does not have any type of immigration story like others might. I do understand what one might be like though.

It's time for a new conversation about immigration in America, and it starts with us.
