Famous Immigrants

Gloria Estefan

As an immigrant, I appreciate, far more than the average American, the liberties we have in this country. Silence is a big enemy of morality. I don't want our blunders in history to get repeated.

Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa

This country was built upon people who have come and immigrated to this country. Some of them legally, some of them illegally. In my case, I came in with no documentation and no ability to get a job or an education.

(Twenty years ago, Dr. Quiñones-Hinojosa, now 40, was an illegal immigrant working in the vegetable fields of the Central Valley in California. Today he is neurosurgeon, is a Harvard Grad, studies tumors and teaches.)
