Comment: Immigration Is American - While many countries have significant quantity of immigration, America is unique in that immigrants and especially their children, can and do become Americans in the deepest sense of the word. This is contrasted to countries of Europe or Japan, which too need immigration as desperately as America does, but are unable to effectively assimilate immigrants. An Italian who immigrates to Germany, is regarded as an Italian by the Germans and by himself, even after his family has lived in Germany for many generations. Immigrants cannot become truly Germans, but they can and do become Americans. There is a world of difference between someone who commits himself fully to building a life in a new country by fully integrating with it, and someone who regards himself as only a temporary migrant worker - no matter how long that state of limbo lasts. Ability to assimilate immigrants is a massive competitive advantage that America possesses over rest of the economies of the world.
