“There is no such thing as an American ethnicity. Indeed the American population is made up of every ethnicity on earth. What binds us together is that we all subscribe to the ideas so eloquently expressed in our founding document, that ‘We are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.’ If you come to this country, subscribe to these ideas, then congratulations, you’re an American, and every bit as much of one as someone whose ancestors arrived on the Mayflower.‘‘
