    A PROCLAMATION ON NATIONAL IMMIGRANT HERITAGE MONTH, 2022

    The United States is a Nation of immigrants — shaped by the courageous people from around the world who leave their homes, lives, and loved ones to seek refuge and opportunity on our shores.  Their sacrifices and entrepreneurial spirit have contributed to the rich tapestry that has defined the character of our country for generations.  Since our founding, the very idea of America as a Nation of limitless possibilities has been nurtured and advanced by immigrants.  During National Immigrant Heritage Month, we honor the contributions of immigrants to our great Nation and celebrate their profound impact.

    - Joseph R. Biden Jr.
