Justice, Fairness, and an American Education

This is something I ran into the other day and is worth considering when talking about immigration in the United States.

a very good point.

I think we in America are so wrapped up in our own little world that we fail to see the bigger picture. Immigrants have it hard, and face a lot of disadvantages. It simply isn't fair to be as harsh on them as some people are. After all, technically speaking, unless you're a native american, you're an immigrant too, and a lot of people fail to see that.

Wow..This is very intresting..and makes me think a lot, I am so blessed. I pray that one day justice will be served. My heart is sad because some can not get the education they want to in the USA, just because they do not have the right documents...It is not fair for immigrants..We need to work this issue out for sure...

This video has truly opened my eyes. These kids do have it hard. We have so many problems and dont even think about others with less of an advantage. Please keep up the work you are doing. God bless

hi:) i am alysia morales and i am in ms. kleinsasser's spanish2 class. after i watched this video about the rights of immigrants i began to think of how truly blessed i am to have been born in this country. some poeple try their whole life to enter into the country that we were already born into. i think that most americans do not realize or care just how gifted they are just to call this country home. thank you for making this document and bringing this growing issue attention:)
