Distinguished Professor Nancy Foner reminds us that while current immigrants are different - coming from different places - than earlier immigrants, they come for the same reasons: freedom from political strife, a better quality of life, economic opportunity, and a better future for their children. They come to New York - a much more welcoming place.
