Federal Agency Says U.S. No Longer Nation of Immigrants

“The federal agency that issues green cards and grants citizenship to people from foreign countries has stopped characterizing the United States as ‘a nation of immigrants,'” the New York Times reports.

“The director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services informed employees in a letter on Thursday that its mission statement had been revised to ‘guide us in the years ahead.’ Gone was the phrase that described the agency as securing ‘America’s promise as a nation of immigrants.'”
