New Convention Video Celebrates the Contributions of Immigrants

MILWAUKEE—Tonight at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, a new video celebrated the contribution of immigrants to the American story. From doctors and teachers, soldiers and artists, Dreamers and doers, to mothers and fathers, newcomers have always risen up to revitalize and rebuild America.

Set against the backdrop of President Obama’s remarks at a naturalization ceremony in 2015, the video features images of immigrants and refugees throughout American history, who through grit and determination came to America to build a better life for their families and themselves —and build a better nation for us all. The story of America is the story of immigrants, one which we should always cherish and fight for in our quest for a more perfect union.
