America is made up of immigrants to left their home to make a new home. Everyone in America is an immigrant or is related to an immigrant. Christopher Columbus was an immigrant himself who murder all the Native Indians for their resources. As many more thousands of years passed, the descendants of the first hunters moved around North and South America. They settled in small villages and later built big cities. There European immigrants came to make new homes in the Americas. They came in search of a better life—one free of the trouble and hardship they had left behind. In their native countries, they often had little money and could not worship God in the way they wished. The immigrants hoped for freedom and good fortune in their new lives.
