The Immigration History of the United States of America

Immigration. It’s been the defining characteristic of America since before our country even began, so it’s important to remind ourselves of our rich history…of where we all came from to create this one-of-a-kind melting pot of people that is the United States in the 21st century.

I’m Amy Goodman with Nermeen Shaikh. The 2018 U.S. midterm elections mark a critical point in the era of President Donald Trump. The potential Democratic takeover of the House of Representatives has unleashed a torrent of white supremacist vitriol that is without precedent in recent years.
