What Immigration means to me

Written on: April 17, 2014

My Mother was French Canadian by birth, I always knew that. We lived on the northern border of New York State.

When visiting Ellis Island it hit me that she was an immigrant who came into the country at a time when many Canadians were coming to the USA to become naturalized American citizens. My Mother was one of them.
