I would challenge one who tends to stereotype immigrants in a negative light to please open your mind and heart to read this book. It is convenient to collectively write off an entire ethnic group.....just like checking a box you no longer have to think about. But we DO have to think about it, as a moral imperative and for the hope that we are capable of restoring humanity in our world during these dark times.
One person who wrote a negative review indicated that the author should have more gratitude for the education she received at the expense of American taxpayers. That mentality perpetuates the concept that this is a class of people who have less human value intrinsically. By pure accident of location of birth, any one of us could exchange places with the individuals whose stories are told in this book. If you think about your own humanity that way, you may come to see the humanity in others.
