that's all fine and dandy and it's great that your parents have been successful, however your parents weren't born here and are not native which is what we're discussing. Therefor your parents experiences are completly irrelivant. Sure lots of imigrants come here, some don't do very well for themselves and other are very successful, but if you take the poverty rates/suicide rates/etc.. of every person who is a landed immigrant/refugee and compare it those who are natives you'll a huge difference, and it's localized to them. No other ethnic group in this country is suffering the way many of them are. Sure there are exceptions to every rule, but for the most part their quality of life is not what it should be. what we need to be asking ourselves is why this is? Obviously something is not right somewhere. we/the governemnt needs to figure out what is the cause of this and do something about it.
