America is a country of immigrants. This has been repeated ad nauseam. But it is also true that it is a country where immigrants have had to battle for their incorporation into society and be "one more" in the nation of nations. I would point out that the United States are constantly stopping being to be something new. As usual, conservation is resistant to change, but change is inevitable. The country that created the founding fathers, with Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, ceased to be after the Civil War. Then, the wave of immigration from Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century's, generated a new and vibrant world.
