We have Cuban born Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida explaining "the immigrant experience" on the campaign trail in a speech to newly sworn in Floridians. As noted in previous entries, I am the son of an immigrant from The Netherlands, so I can truly say to genealogy students that I can somewhat understand Ilena's perspective.
"No matter where you are from, no matter what your background is, no matter what your socioeconomic status is, every person can achieve his or her dreams."
