The history of America is rich in stories of immigrants coming with nothing but a small suitcase of clothes and a dream of a better tomorrow. Odds are good that there is a story like this in your family heritage.

The annual “Global Goes Local” conference recently touched on these themes at St. Cloud State University. The conference covered topics from the economic impact of immigrants to different political efforts.
I can’t say I agree with everything from the conference, but it shines light on a system that needs reform.
