At a time when the immigration debate in America threatens to boil over, Americans are losing the ability to talk about a phenomenon that has defined who we are as a country—a nation of immigrants from all walks of life, from all corners of the earth, who have fueled America’s success with individual talents. Immigration tells our essential story: E pluribus unum—Out of many, one.
GreenCard Stories demonstrates that today's immigrants are just as hardworking, energetic, and eager to contribute to U.S. society as past generations of new arrivals. It illustrates the energy and passion of these people and conveys a collective determination to fulfill their potential in America.
Green Card Stories features the dramatic narratives of fifty recent immigrants— each with permanent residence or citizenship—by nationally-recognized journalist Saundra Amrhein, accompanied by intimate portraits by photographer Ariana Lindquist.
