The United States is a melting pot of people from around the Globe.  Immigrants have flocked to the united states for Hundreds of years to escape persecution, poverty and oppression.  As is stated on The Statue of Liberty

Give me your tired, your poor
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore
Send these the homeless tempest-tost to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

Give me your tired, your poor
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore
Send these the homeless tempest-tost to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

 The Benefactor becomes the Beneficiary

The United States has provided many opportunities for immigrants from all over the world, including England and Europe, Russia, The Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas.  These people have emigrated to the USA with hopes of a better life.  Many of these immigrants had to risk life and limb, sacrificed their heritage and ancestry to provide for themselves.  Their spirit of hope fueled the dreams and industry of people over the world.

Although many oppose immigration, The United States has benefited immensely.  The immigrants that are willing to sacrifice everything for simply a chance to work hard in the US are immensely valuable to this country.  The same industry, persistence and ingenuity that brought these people to the US also fuel their drive to succeed here.  Some of these have built fortunes and given great inventions.  However some of these immigrants have contributed much to the United States Anonymously.

It is often the immigrants to the United States tat have done the work that the citizenry of the United States were unwilling to do.  Some of the work was tedious or low paying.  Often the work done by the immigrants to the United States was dangerous and cost them their life
