33 NATURALIZED US CITIZENS TO COMPETE FOR THEIR COUNTRY IN BEIJING

Rate this Entry

According to the Associated Press, this is more than a 20% increase since the 2004 Olympics. The AP article also has some humorous quotes from the antis basically saying that we should only be allowing in Olympic athletes and Nobel Prize winners. What these less than Nobel-level thinkers don't get is that the immigrant society that is the United States is one of the key reasons these 33 athletic superstars chose the US. Some of the athletes came as refugees and at least one was an illegal alien when he entered the country. So I presume the antis should have put an asterisk after their remarks.



By the way, I'll be featuring many of these athletes over the next month in my Immigrants of the Day posts.
