Immigrants

 

Ched Myers writes, “The political winds of imperial conquest and settlement, and the global economic currents of boom and bust, push and pull people like great tides. They have shaped and reshaped the shorelines of countries and cultures since the first soldiers of fortune landed lost on the beaches of Great Turtle Island. To blame the immigrant for the tides is like blaming a fallen apple for gravity.
Who is legal, who is an immigrant, and even who is native ebbs and flows with these tides.”
