  • As an immigrant from Mexico I have always being interested in the immigrant life. History is something that I love and through this project I can exercise both of this components to create a good project that I can relate to. As a minority in a country on many minorities is important to inform people about the changing face of American because is our history and I’m able to express my idea through this project. \n
  • Be loyal and respect the Gods. They would live a proper life, have a family and dream with becoming the Chief or warrior of the tribe. They also had an American Dream, because an American Dream not only applies to immigrants from other countries, but also to the natural born citizens of this country. \n
  • They were put in small vessels that would carry any where from 100 to 1,000 passengers. They were all put in the the underground of the vessel where they won’t see the light for a few days. They were attack by outlaws on their way to the ports. And for a long time this was the only way to attempt the American Dream. Disease was also a problem as yellow fewer and Chicken Pox.\n
  • They knew they were so close, almost touch it, yet so far away since they came with no money, no food, no one to help them. They knew there was a long way to go, and with lack of rest they still took on a new adventure to look for a job.\n
  • It was the promise of a better life, that if they can’t achieve they can at least provide the opportunity for their children. It was the promise that they would create something for themselves, the promise of equal opportunity because they believed that nothing was for free, so they must work hard and obtained. \n
  • They arrived first then the English (11 years earlier), planted their flag in Manhattan and at the time the future of America seemed to be with more of a Dutch touch rather then English. They came strictly for business purpose, since their country enjoyed their Golden Age of freedom and prosperity. \n\n
  • New Amsterdam became the financial capital of the Dutch, it was a sign of success for many. They get credit for firmly establish religious freedom, even to others non-dutch.\n
  • Located in Virginia the first wave of the English that came to the New World were all from London (14,000 and surrounding area). Their book was the King James version of the Bible. \n

The Huguenot (Protestant Faith) Exiles saw refuge in the New World. They introduced many new techniques to trade, became teachers and physicians. The “cradle of liberty” by the Feneuil family. They arrived to PA first then William Penn, and every where they were established a school, hospital, government buildings and assigned leaders. \n

  • In the morning of October 1683, “The Concord” arrived to PA and with it the first wave of Germans into the New World.\n
  • The Germans started the new wave of non-British immigrants making the New World a nation of nations. They send home letters that made people come to the New World. At 300,000 strong they accounted for 10% of all the colonial population.\n
  • The classic story of two pennies, all the heart and a mind set to succeed. They mostly came on the 1900’s and established in the east coast.\n

  • The early settlements in the south of the country around Texas were helped by the Mexican neighbors who thought them the way of life in that part of the country. Long time before the Pilgrims since 1598, they learned to live the hard life of the dry land. Introduced better ways to find he gold during the gold rush of california. They benefited less then anyone else although they contributed the most. They language became foreign and got the less pay jobs. They were hire as “crews” they moved together to new fields, work and went back to Mexico. They had no contact with any American other then the “Patron” (Boss).\n

  • They were used to work in the fields, with no outside contact with anyone else nor they were able to leave the fields or ranches. Jose Campos Trejo is my grand-parent and he used to be a jornalero. Play interview.\n
  • They went from the slaves, to the civil rights fighters, undermine by both white and black, they keep moving forward blending with the high rank white population. They came in chains. They “lost their own freedom to build a world for the free.”\n

  • Michal Lowicki, Zbigniew Stefanski, Jur Mata, Jan Bogdan, Karol Zrenica and Stanislaw Sadowski the six Polish that saved Jamestown. They weren’t granted full rights as all the colonials and so they went on strike, it was not about money, but about universal suffrage.\n

  • There are around 2,000,0000 refugees since 1933. This shows that although immigration laws are changing, the USA still accepts people from other countries keep the idea of helping the ones that need it the most. The new wave of immigrants want to earn their right to become americans rather then just accept it. In their view is a way to contribute to the country in a possitive way. \n
