Perspective of a Local Immigrant

Brenda is proud to be an American citizen

Brenda is a legal immigrant from Canada. Work was hard to find for her husband, so they moved to Silicon Valley in California. After a long process of visas and¬†permanent¬†residency she was able to apply for US citizenship. She believes that her immigration is not like those from other countries. Canada and the United States are so similar that she felt that she didn’t have to perserve and old culture or adapt to a new one. Being in America has and will give her five children the opportunities and resources to be successful in their education and occupations. Brenda is proud to be part of and contribute to such a great nation.
