The paper is very important in the history of America because it shows how America has come be a multicultural society. People from all over the world have resided in America for very many years. This can be evidenced by the fact that the current American president has Kenyan roots but he has been born and brought up in the US.
People did persuade their relatives to take the journey to America but the despair they faced on the way, which resulted in the death of others, was very traumatizing. The American dream has resulted in the death of very many people because everyone wants to be successful like the neighbour next door. However, it is worth noting that achieving the American dream has been there since the 18th century.
