Some humor about immigrants

In Cultural Expectations, Immigrant Families, Questions on May 11, 2009 at 12:23 pm

I found this funny SNL clip by way of this blog that was discussing the complicated dynamics within an immigrant family as it relates to legal status.

All jokes aside, I think that many immigrants today have the same aspirations of those depicted in the skit. I think that for some Americans, it has been so long since their family immigrated that they don’t think about how different their lives would be if their ancestors had not been afforded the same opportunity.

Also, I thought that the blogger’s point of view tied in to my post on expectations a few weeks ago.

What do you think?
