Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles) issued the following statement in response to a new Pew Research Center study projecting that Asian Americans will become The United States’ largest immigrant group by 2055.
“…Immigrants always have been, and always will be, the engine that drives our nation forward. From the workers who built our railroads to the actors and actresses who entertain us to the entrepreneurs who start companies, immigrants invigorate and energize our nation.
“As an immigrant myself, I wake up every day thanking this remarkable country for inventing and sustaining the American dream. To be an immigrant is to be American.” (end)
