On October 21st at the noon lecture we had one of our freshmen year experience professors address the issue of immigration. Professor Daniel Malpica started the lecture by stating why immigration is important. He had gave us many reasons but the most important idea that I took from the list was how immigration has changed the face of the United States. It has been said that 13.5% of the United States’ population is made of up immigrants.

Old immigration often referred to immigrants from Europe such as Italy, Poland, Greece, and Russia. As for the “New” immigration it adverted to immigrants from Latin America and Asia.
