The U.S. soccer World Cup 2014 team played on Monday against Ghana. It’s quite interesting that more than half of the members on the team were born outside of the U.S. or have parents who are immigrants.
The U.S. team has four players from Germany, four Latinos and two native Americans. For a country that has such a controversial immigration debate it is ironic that a large number of its players were not born here. There is great diversity on the U.S. and that depicts the different cultures that share the passion for this sport. It seems when it comes to sports the topic of immigration is much more tolerable.
Why can’t this tolerance for immigration with athletes be shared with normal folks who are in favor of immigration reform?
