“We should be so thankful that they’re here”

“We should be so thankful that they’re here,” demographer William Frey says of immigrants boosting the USA’s diversity.  Mr Frey is a Senior Fellow, Metropolitan Policy Program and the recent author of the book called: Diversity Explosion: How New Racial Demographics are Remaking America

And the “they” Mr. Frey is referring to are immigrants. So many immigrants and so much diversity that according to a USA Today article on the subject it is highly likely that the next person you will meet will be of a different race or ethnicity.

How all of us in the United States respond to these changes will define us as a nation for the foreseeable future.

What do YOU think we should be doing at the national level – or right here at home- to help us embrace these changes and become a stronger country as a result? (Yes, as a more diverse country.)
