Is America Still A Nation of Immigrants?

Is America Still A Nation of Immigrants?

What is it like to be an immigrant in America these days? Is it still worth coming, you ask, and is the American dream still possible?

Your questions gave me pause. Who from Vietnam, after all, would have thought to ask them a few years back? Didn’t the American dream, or rather the dream of coming to America, cause the movement of millions in our homeland, and stir the soul of many millions more? It breaks my heart then to hear that you might not come. It is to me the worst news yet about my adopted country.

Mexico Hits Trump's Wall; Why this is "a rejection of the neighborhood itself"

Mexico Hits Trump’s Wall; Why this is “a rejection of the neighborhood itself”

SAN FRANCISCO — When President Trump signed an executive order to build a border wall, he unleashed a political crisis in Mexico.

With a stroke of the pen, the NAFTA nations — the U.S., Canada, and Mexico — went from being the “three amigos” to “frenemies.”

As recently as October 2016 Mexico’s ambassador was confident Donald Trump would not be elected president. “It’s not going to happen,” Miguel Basañez told me at the time.

But it did happen — and Mexico’s hope that it could work with Canada to present a united front against the Trump administration came undone when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was informed that Trump would work out “a bilateral agreement” with Canada alone to salvage the mutual benefits both countries derived from NAFTA.

With Fidel Gone, New Hope for Seized Properties Among Cuban Americans

When Zenaida Pantaleón left Cuba, she and her husband, a Mexican citizen, lost her home and business.

Now 94, the great-grandmother, who uses a wheelchair, has no expectations of reclaiming those assets.

“That was a lifetime ago,” she says, hopeful that Cuba has a better future. “I have never returned, but my daughter went back thirty years ago. She says a doctor and his family are living in the home and have taken good care of it.”

Having spent half a century in Mexico, she raised her daughter and seen her grandchildren become adults with their own families.

Her serene attitude toward her losses as the Cuban Revolution became communist is not shared by all who have legal claims, or may have legal claims, to properties seized by the Cuban State.
