Hillary Clinton Can Expand the American Dream to Immigrants

Image By Murat Guzel - On the eve of this historic election, I have reflected extensively on my journey to become an American citizen and what truly makes America great. I immigrated to the United States to pursue my education in 1986. I was born in Turkey - a critical ally which will feature prominently in the next Administration’s foreign policy decisions. Next week, my daughter is casting her vote in Pennsylvania in her first Presidential election. Her eight year old younger sister has been inspired and focused in a way I have never seen. I have raised a family and built a multinational organics food business in the key swing region of the Keystone State. As I listened to President Bill Clinton visit Albright College last Friday and Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) at Muhlenberg College last Wednesday, I could not help but focus more of my attention on the enthusiastic chatter of the students in the audience. It is this generation that is and will make America even greater.
