Nation of Immigrants
By Ramah Kudaimi
August 12, 2005

Response to Chicago Sun-Times' "Bigots forget own immigrant roots "

I would like to thank Andrew Greeley for reminding us that all Americans have ancestors that immigrated here (“Bigots forget own immigrant roots,” Aug. 12). Recent immigrants face hard times today and it is good to know that not everyone is demanding the United States continue supporting actions such as those against Ibrahim Parlak and his family. The United States government has stepped forward to amend its past treatment of several groups including African and Asian Americans. But the harassment and civil rights violations which newcomers to this country face now signal that the government is once again stepping backwards and disgracing its own identity as a nation of immigrants.
