    In this article, Dr. James Zogby describes his family's immigration story. During the 1920s, "he US Congress was in the grips of a nativist xenophobic fervor. Congressional debates termed Syrians as "parasites" with one Senator saying "we don't need any more Syrian trash coming here". Visas for Syrians and other "undesirable countries" were to remain frozen for almost three decades." 

    Zogby links his father's inability to get a visa to the current political situation of many undocumented immigrants - facing racism from elected officials. 

    "In the past, because of hard work and the fact that some leaders listened to "the voices of our better angels", the vision of the welcoming "Lady in the Harbor" has won out. It is our fight today to make sure she wins again. The soul of America is at stake. We dare not lose."
