Once Upon a Time in America

"Before the creation of the welfare state, immigrants who came to this country were for the most part attracted by America’s reputation as a land of freedom and opportunity. Laws and customs that then prevailed required immigrants to carve out their individual destinies by their own labor, perseverance, intelligence, and determination." James Thornton, Six Great Immigrants, The New American, February 19, 1996
