Hi everyone

Im Mr Smith

In this program Im going to talk about the immigrant day And Im going to Interwiew two

first Im going to talk a little about the immigrant day

The immigrant day start On October 14, 1969, when Nick loannidis, known as Nick the Greek,
immigrated to America from a small island in North Greece. He came to California, and settled in
the city of Huntington Park. A tailor by trade, Nick got a job with the May Company the second
day he arrived in the United States. Because of his special talents, the company hired an
interpreter for him, and within 2 years he had saved enough money to open his own tailor shop
in Huntington Park. Once he got established at his place of business he applied for his citizenship
papers and was sworn in as an American citizen.

Nicks celebration is rooted in the sincere pride he has for America and its tradition of liberty and
freedom. Every ethnic minority has served to build and strengthen this great nation. Immigrants
were largely responsible for our turn of the century transformation into a world industrial and
agricultural giant. A report by Charles 0. Paullin from the Dictionary of American Biography
revealed the tremendous contributions of immigrants from the 18th and 19th Century in the
following arts and sciences: 20 percent of the businessmen, 20 percent of the scholars and
scientists, 23 percent of the painters, 24 percent of the engineers, 28 percent of the architects,
29 percent of the clergymen, 46 percent of the musicians and 61 percent of the actors were of
foreign births.

In recognition of the great contributions of Americas immigrants, the Congress designated


October 28, 1987 as National Immigrants Day. This Act was passed on that particular day and
month to coincide with the Statue of Liberty dedication by France to the United States in
October, 1886.

The celebration take place inside the Freedom Shrine, which displays with pride a large and
complete collection of letters and photographs received over the years from public officials from
across the country praising National Immigrants Day.
