Two hundred years ago, our ancestors chose to leave their ancestral homelands and renounce their citizenship’s to come to America for a better life and a chance at a freedom not allowed in most of Europe. This pursuit of economic freedom was the foundation for making the United States the most powerful empire in history, and made the ‘melting pot’ a phenomenon envied by other nations.
