“People come to America for the opportunities this great country offers. This is the place that invented everything from sliced bread to the light bulb. Then came the first airplane, the cell phone and the internet. America, including its immigrants, have revolutionized the world a million times over. So, when people want to come to America, I get it. I am proud to help people pursue their American Dream.”
