The Face of America

How has immigration shaped America?

Immigration has shaped the United States for over four centuries with the arrival of the first European colonists. Throughout the country's history, people have migrated from all over the world to America. Thus, the political and social realities of America reflect our ever-changing demographics. Immigrants really provided a diversity of cultures for us. For example without immigrants we wouldn't have places like Chinatown and Little Italy.

In our stories it will be about the stories we have about others immigrating to the U.S. it  is stories about our friends and families. In Community Resources it is where immigrants would find help to survive in the U.S. under about us is where you will find our teachers that helped us with this project and it will also show pictures of us doing this website/project.
