“Everywhere immigrants have enriched and strengthened the fabric of American life,” by
president John F. Kennedy
United States’ principles were created and molded by
groups of legal and illegal immigrants arriving each year, never stopped creating controversies in
the country. Immigrants with different religions, coming from different countries, and speaking
different languages These groups have somehow put an impact to the American culture and economy in
many ways. America’s most recent wave of immigration started in the late 20th century where
the immigrants from Mexico, China, Korea, India and Africa are rising.
Immigrants made a
big contribution in the fields of Science and Education in U.S. culture. Up to now, intelligent
students from other countries enroll in U.S. colleges to sharpen their skills in math, science, and
other disciplines. Many of them have chosen to remain in the country with the eagerness to
contribute their knowledge on the fields that they’re an expert of, with the passion to
develop vibrant cultural centers in some cities. Their contributions to Arts, Sciences, and
Entertainment world greatly demonstrate their talents and visions as an artists and positive
influences on the American culture.
Now, let’s talk about food! Would you agree on
this old adage that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach? Because the most
appreciated influences from the immigrants on U.S. culture is in Culinary Arts. Although America has
few renowned dishes, the Mexican, Italian, or Chinese are the results of immigrants’
contributions. Often times, they come to the U.S and create businesses like restaurants, adapting
their own native dishes and flavors for the Americans.
And when it comes to languages,
most of the immigrants who have stayed in the United States very seldom, if not stopped, speak their
mother tongue. Those who insisted on speaking their native language or the bilingual immigrants,
shall I say, become a cultural asset as they also contribute to American culture while working in
government, business, and non-profit world, establishing cultural and economic ties with their home
countries. And as the economy becomes more global, there is also an increase in the diversity of
language and experiences. Nevertheless, English would be much more appropriate to be called as their
language, also used for legislation, regulations, executive orders, treaties, federal court rulings,
and some other official matters.
Immigrants of all races represent a great part of
America's work force. And they are determined to achieve their American dreams, always aspiring for
a better life.
