Immigrants are your neighbors

There’s a good chance that somebody on your block, or in your office, or in the church pew in front of you, or in your bowling league is an immigrant.

The Pew Research Center says there are 45 million immigrants in the United States now. That’s about 14 percent of the population, about 1 of every 7 people.

Immigrants aren’t “other” people.

Immigrants are some of your neighbors and co-workers, immigrants are your doctor or the pilot on your next flight, immigrants bag your groceries and clean your house and teach your kids.
