SPANISH text. Immigrants in America are at the heart of what makes this country the most prosperous and visionary in the world. The optimism that goes along with this sentiment was at its peak until recently, when tragedy struck at the World Trade Center. Once again, the foreign-born in America have become objects of suspicion, and instead of adopting laws that would extend our borders to them, our country has suddenly swung its gates shut. But do we really know who makes up the bulk of immigrants in America? By telling the personal stories of the immigrants' journey to America and their subsequent effects on American culture, Jorge Ramos advances the notion that immigrants have created a country within a country, and ultimately are the soul of America's continued good fortune.
