In the most primitive roots of American history, immigration has, at its heart, nurtured the most powerful and significantly diverse population in the world. It is true that we recognize the significance of creating a welcoming culture to lawful immigration as it serves as a vitality of the very economic prosperity and cultural diversity that contributes so integrally to our individual freedom, limited government and free enterprise system.
