"The overwhelming majority of academic studies out there about who the present-day immigrants are prove that your uncle is wrong: Today’s Honduran immigrant is no different from yesterday’s Irish immigrant in any significant way. Read testimonials from the Ellis Island immigrants and then read interviews with the people currently waiting at the southern border and you’ll be struck by how similar they are," writes Sibii.
