As excerpted from the Los Angeles Daily News:

The story of America is the story of immigrants. The contributions immigrants have made to the fabric of this nation range from the storied military and legislative achievements of Hamilton, an orphan from a small Caribbean island who became our country’s first treasury secretary, to the millions of others who have come to this country seeking greater opportunity and in doing so have added to its vitality.

My own great-grandfather Ambrose Walsh, an Irish immigrant, came to California seeking work to provide for his family. He was a bricklayer, and helped lay the bricks that would become the foundation of UCLA. Nearly 80 years later, as a graduate of UCLA, I stood proudly on that diverse campus coming to the realization that my grandfather paved the way for my own success by his hard work.
