Letter: Immigrants help make America great
I am in the eighth grade at Southeast Middle School. I have been worried about how society is treating people, especially people who come from other countries to work and make a life here.
I feel that people want to “make America great again,” but it cannot be great if people do not get along with each other. This means everyone needs to make an effort to be understanding of people who are not like them, who don’t come from the same places or speak the same languages.
Let me start by saying that immigrants are not rapists. They keep it strong; they make their family proud by doing all they can to keep their family succeeding and to at least provide food and shelter for their family to be safe.
Immigrants are hard- working. I’m going to give you an example; my brother is a very hard-working man; he may have stress put on his shoulders, but this man makes me the proudest. He wants me to graduate from high school and college, like he did.
My brother has worked hard to get where he is. He is a manager at a manufacturing plant, and he is the boss of many people. He is a family man with a baby girl on the way. He graduated from Salisbury High School.
I am writing this letter to show that every immigrant has the right to prove themselves and to not be called the same by people who don’t understand what they go through and what it means to be an immigrant.
Also, the United States was built by immigrants, as everybody knows. Immigrants will continue to help build the country to make it a better place to live.
