Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions

Immigrating to America, I

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Burt has spent most of his life as a stranger reporting from strange lands and trying to understand what was going on. A few years ago he decided to look at his own country and try to discover the true history of our population. Each year the United States grants permanent residency to more immigrants than all the other nations of the world combined. Most people come here believing that with hard work and determination they will end up with a better life---more money and more freedom. In fact, everyone who is in the United States today is either an immigrant or the descendant of an immigrant.
