John Bolton on Immigration

 


Assimilate immigrants: not embarrassed by Americanization

During the height of immigration in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, our ancestors had no hesitancy in tossing millions of new arrivals straight into the melting pot, and no one was embarrassed by Americanization. Because the melting pot directly forms the shared values of citizens who see themselves as "We the People," when assimilation is disrupted or frustrated, the unifying bonds of citizenship are similarly weakened. These are critical issues regardless of one's views on the broader question of who should be let in and who excluded.
