Now that the Senate is finally debating a bill that would overhaul the immigration system, legislators would do well to separate myth from reality.
Myth 1: There are more immigrants than ever and these immigrants break the mold of previous waves.
Myth 2: Immigrants migrate because they are very poor.
More From Forbes:
Myth 4: Present-day immigrants do not assimilate, unlike previous waves.
Myth 5: Low-skilled workers take away jobs, lower salaries and hurt the economy.
Myth 6: A flexible system would mean an invasion of foreigners.
Myth 7: Immigrants don´t pay taxes and cost more than they contribute.

President Obama has issued an executive order putting a stop on the deportation of young (below 30-years old) undocumented immigrants who have lived here for more than five years and have attended school without criminal records.
For several years a group of young Dreamers
Almost all of these minors were brought to the U.S. by their parents as young children, some when they were as young as 4 days. They were subjected to the various restrictions this society imposes: lack of access to medical care, higher education, jobs, and even driving licenses or Id cards in many
Mo was born in Iran, brought here at age 3, grew up in Michigan, and has never been back to Iran. Initially his parents were on student visas but later failed, for technical reasons, in filing for legal residency. Consequently Mohammad became undocumented, even after his parents got residency through his sister who was born in the US. For the past few years Mo has worked on the Dream campaign day and night, from state to state, organizing the movement.
One day he was arrested in John McCain’s office in Arizona and the next day he was sitting in Obama’s campaign office in Detroit Michigan on a hunger strike. The following video shows him coaching other dreamers through an act of civil disobedience in Portland, OR. Mohammad Abdollahi is a selfless leader and today should be his DAY! Congratulations Mohammad, we are proud of you...
