“America is an idea. It is a culture of tolerance. All different colors and religions can live in coexistence. All can contribute positively. This idea must be a leader in the world. This idea must be preserved. If anything happened to this idea, it would be very bad for the rest of the world.”—Zaheer Iqbal, immigrant from Pakistan
Author Margery Leveen Sher sets the stage for our conversation in the following words. “This book tells some of the continuing stories of immigrants to our country. The American Dream is not dead, and it is certainly not a myth. It is a vision that millions of people work toward every day. It is a vision that gives hope to people around the world who are suffering persecution. The American Dream vision is not something to be cynical about: it is a vision for which to fight and push for everyone who is starting anew as an American immigrant, as well as those who have suffered persistent poverty in this country.”
