Dear Editor:
Here is my suggestion: Immigration Daily - E pluribus unum. I know, I know, it's already been used. Pierre Eugene DuSimitiere (1726-1784), a US (Swiss-born) naturalist, patriot and portrait painter, originally suggested this Latin phrase as the national motto of the United States of America, and it was selected by the first Great Seal committee in 1776, at the beginning of the American Revolution. Translated from Latin, this phrase means, "From many, one" or "Out of many, one", and originally referred to the integration of the thirteen independent colonies into one united country. Since then, it has taken on an additional meaning, given the pluralistic nature of American society from immigration. It may not mean as much if one doesn't understand its origin, but to me - E pluribus unum describes precisely what it is about the idea of (and the ideal) America that I love. Anyway, those are my two cents' worth on the topic.
