Sunday morning music

Having recently enjoyed (?) a government shut-down over immigration issues, I decided to look for immigration-themed songs.  Of course, there’s only one way to begin!

I searched for more songs about the theme, but being a (legal) immigrant myself, I found it a depressing experience.  There are many songs on the subject, but most are from very partisan perspectives, either pro- or anti-immigration (particularly illegal immigration).  If I select any of them, I’m sure to offend some readers while pleasing others.  Therefore, I point you to the selection available on YouTube, and invite you to choose those that suit you.



  1. Neil Diamond's America. It is the opening and closing song for his version of the movie "Jazz Singer" and it has a special place in my heart being an immigrant myself.
