"Immigration: Two Viewpoints"

De La Salle Middle School
City of St. Louis, MO

“Come, young ones and elders from every great nation. Sail the immense sea.”

“Yes, but do you know our English language?”

“Arrive poor, but notice that our doors and opportunities are open to you.”

“Yes, but with a price: You must work hard to start a life with no money.”

“Travel, sick and downtrodden, ready for tremendous change.”

“Yes, but, come with a plan; don’t come to live on our streets.”

“Come and live with us and learn our culture. Maybe we’ll learn from yours.”

“Yes, but don’t change our ways.”
