Portrait of President Woodrow Wilson from 1912

We came to America, either ourselves or in the person of our ancestors, to better the ideals of men, to make them see finer things than they had seen before, to get rid of the things that divide and to make sure if the things that unite.

This week we celebrate the birthday of our nation – a nation of immigrants. My ancestors came to this country from Scotland and Great Britain. One of my English ancestors was a founder of Williamsburg, VA and there is a plaque inscribed with his name in that historic city. The majority of my ancestors were not so illustrious, but they came to the United States to pursue the American Dream. In my law practice, I see this pursuit for legal immigration and citizenship continuously and it is what makes America so great.
