WE ARE ALL IMMIGRANTS
Immigration is at the very fabric of who we are as a country. We have always been a place for those who have sought refuge from the greatest storms of life. I have many friends who have sought that refuge and found it in America. We are all immigrants.
I recently sat down with my friend, Ninfa Floyd, who came to America 57 years ago. Her family escaped the oppressive regime of a communist dictatorship. We discussed her experience as a child coming to a strange land, not knowing the language, and being different than other kids her age. A challenge for anyone, but as a child a very scary one.
Ninfa brings humanity to the stories of people who are seeking refuge today. She is fiercely compassionate and believes we fail a very basic test of humanity turning our backs on the most vulnerable.
I hope you’ll take time to listen to our conversation. Please share with your family & friends and feel free to engage us in the comments.
