I was astonished of some of the information I received, first there was not a lot of information on immigrants view on the American Dream, but there were many journals and opposing views with vile and bias reviews on why the American Dream has influence different nations to migrate to the U.S in search of the American Dream and taking Native American jobs preventing them from success and achieving The Dream that was rightfully theirs.
Since I already knew the concept of an immigrant’s American Dream, being the main reason I migrated here, the next thing I did was an online search combining the terms Immigrants American Dream 1900s and Immigrants American Dream 2014 in the Google search engine.

Even though I only read the first couple chapters, by the end of the week, I felt that I had more than enough information for my research question and sub-topics.

The United States of America has dependably been a country of immigrant settlers; a place where there are many chances to succeed where immigrants can, through diligent work and determination, attain better lives for themselves and their families. In today's reality, understanding the American Dream is presently...
