This book is an attempt to focus attention of Americans to the problem they pose for themselves and other immigrants in their midst. Also, the book highlights the alienation usually felt by naturalized citizens of the United States.
Naturalized citizens and legal immigrants should be made to feel welcome both naturally and psychologically. Besides, early immigrants who had emigrated here from other parts of the world built the country. They just happened to be Europeans. It also highlights cycle of vicious behaviors on innocent population.
No one is qualified to question anyone’s background. And no one is qualified enough to question the loyalty of another citizen just because they arrived here earlier. It is the contribution to progress and advancement of the nation, which should be the yardstick of love and loyalty. So also should payment of taxes and improvement and participation in civic duties. Overt pressure of questioning other citizens’ accents and fluency in the English language is a sore note of discord for all races inhabiting this free land. Unfortunately, this and other attitudes drove the early settlers or immigrants to the near annihilation of the original dwellers––the Cherokee and other American Indians. Racist attitudes that were the bases of the founding of this modern American nation must be discarded.
Until all immigrants come to grip with the situation at hand and start treating one another with respect, and this coupled with the recognition of Native Americans rights and aspirations, the fabrics holding the nation together would sooner break apart at the seam.
