Immigrants get the job done.

We came to this country with our heads held high, basking in the great opportunities previously out of reach.

Immigrants get the job done.

With these freedoms in our palm, we must grasp them tightly, for these opportunities are once in a lifetime.

Immigrants get the job done.

Living far away from the motherland, far away from the home we love, we came to this country surrounded by unfamiliar faces, but we still rise above.

Immigrants get the job done.  

Perseverance is our middle name, and we won’t let the hatred of others get in the way of living our American Dream.

We won’t stop working, we won’t stop striving, we won’t stop trying
