Interviewed immigrants regarding how they view life in the United States. Respondents say that while the United States is not perfect, it is far better than what they left. Very few have any regrets or want to leave. More than half consider themselves Americans. While more than half maintain strong ties with the homeland, this connection weakens over time. Economic opportunity and freedom are the main reasons for immigrating. (SM)
