Tony Messenger writes for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Today he told a story about immigration, in his own family and more recently. He (and his source) also told me something I did not know — that of the twenty largest metro areas in the nation, St. Louis had the largest increase in foreign-born residents from 2014 to 2015. Second was Minneapolis-St. Paul.
And here’s the lesson he found, in his annual flip-through of the pages in his mom’s old Bible….
“Until after my mom died, I never thought much about my immigrant past. I was a typical American mutt,…. But we all come from somewhere.”
It’s a quick read; you’ll enjoy it!
