Overview

Thirty-nine men, all of whom are widely considered to be the "founding fathers" of the nation, signed the United States Constitution. But did you know that seven of those thirty-nine immigrated to the United States? Since the country's founding, immigrants have served as politicians in all branches and levels of government. In this book, you'll learn about the contributions of immigrants who served as senators, congressional representatives, governors, and mayors. These immigrants include Henry Kissinger, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Pramila Jayapal.
