    Different immigrants have different views regarding US foreign policy,
    some are of the opinion, that the nation can do no wrong,
    some feel that imperialism has gone far enough,
    and some have a laissez faire attitude regading the that issue, and see thier economic advantages in the US as a way and means to help uplift their people here and in their nation of birth.

    This is based on 15 years of talking to
    various;
    Asians,
    Africans,
    Mexicans
    South and Central Americans,
    Eastern Europeans,
    Arabs,
    and Carribbeans,

    Most foreigners that spoke with me view America as the greatest system in the world.

    Most of the immigrants that I have talk to believe they didn’t have much of a choice. They had to do some thing to better their life’s.

    They would have preferred to have stayed at their home town. Others saw it as an adventure for a new way of living, they felt hemp in by there old culture. But at any rate, they came here to improve their life’s. Many see them self’s as caught between to two places.
