Thank you.

Betsy Jacobson says:

Thank you, Maria Hinojosa, for saying on the Up with Chris show today what I’ve been saying for years and years, but I never said it as simply and cogently as you did today. You said,
“The first immigrants in America were the Pilgrims.”


Whenever the subject of immigration appears in a conversation of which I’m a participant, I try to make it clear to everyone present that they’re all immigrants. Me too, ‘though 3rd generation. So who counts generations?

I shall now use your simple and totally direct sentence. I’ve never heard it expressed before except from my own lips.
