Immigration has been a powerful worker in the creation of this nation and will be discussed as such. In biology organisms of the same species live within the same living habitats. They share the same needs and do not shun those who live in their habitats. Most organisms live with an understanding that working together will ensure survival. That is the understanding that if one were to exclude themselves from their pack then one would have a lower survival rate then with their pack.
