Immigrants have always been and will always be part of the fabric of this great country.
It’s unfortunate that immigrants have been used as a political punching bag this election, that Donald Trump has convinced his millions of supporters that the people who willingly do the back-breaking work no one wants to do are the root cause of everything that’s supposed to be wrong with America.

The truth is that the majority of people who came to this country did it in search of a better life and are willing to put up with just about anything to get a crack at the American dream. And in the process of doing that, immigrants give a whole lot more than they take. In fact, some of them become actual, certified geniuses.
Los Angeles Magazine commissioned the video you see above, which shows just exactly how much we would lose if immigrants weren’t in this country. The magazine, by the way, will devote its upcoming issue solely to immigration.
