Diversity Helping our Collective Independence

Who is defying the dominance of the United States by corporate America, and trying to keep the thought of mom and pop businesses alive? It's the immigrants.

Between 2000 and 2013, immigrants accounted for all net Main Street business growth nationally and in 31 of the 50 largest metropolitan areas in the country.

Maybe immigrants aren't so brainwashed as the rest of us about our overly capitalistic system, where those on the top can't have enough and we should pass our resources to them and sit quietly while we are grateful for crumbs.

Immigrants are keeping our American dream of independence alive.
