Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMAN BILLIONAIRE PRAISES IMMIGRANTS

Rate this Entry

A reader sent me this link to a Tampa Bay Business Journal profile article on Sheila C. Johnson. Ms. Johnson is one of the most successful business owners in America. She owns major real estate interests and professional sports teams and she is also a major philanthropist. And being an African-American woman, she has no doubt had to work even harder to get to the top. I thought this comment from her interview was especially interesting:

Who are your heroes in the business world?

I know this is going to sound crazy, but with all the hubbub about immigration, I look at the recent immigrants in this country -- the people many are saying are here looking for a handout -- and I realize they are just about the only people actually exhibiting the kind of work ethic that built this country. And they're certainly keeping alive the concept of the American dream. Not only that, but they're doing the kind of jobs that most native born Americans wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole, the jobs many feel are beneath them. I guess I consider these people my heroes because without the work that they do, day in and day, this economy would absolutely crumble.
