Cal Thomas: Immigration isn’t ‘central to our way of life’

The cab driver who took me to the Washington Nationals baseball game on July 4 is from Bangladesh. I asked him how he got here. He said his father “won the immigration lottery” some years back, was admitted under U.S. immigration law and eventually became a citizen, as did his son. He is proud to be an American and said that after he dropped me off he was going to a traditional Fourth of July party to celebrate America’s independence.
