Quote for Today: Jose Antonio Vargas

There are an estimated 258 million migrants around the world, and many of us are migrating to countries that previously colonized and imperialized us. We have a human right to move, and governments should serve that right, not limit it. The unprecedented movement of people–what some call a “global migration crisis”–is, in reality, a natural progression of history. Yes, we are here because we believe in the promise of the American Dream–the search for a better life, the challenge of dreaming big. But we are also here because you were there–the cost of American imperialism and globalization, the impact of economic policies and political decisions.
