A world without immigrants

In the past eight years we saw the rise of Obama and the smartphone.
Which of the two had a bigger impact on your life today? Yes, the smartphone.

Who gave rise to the immense popularity of the smartphone?
Steve Jobs (click). A man who was the son of a Middle Eastern Muslim immigrant from Homs, Syria.

That's right: without immigrants you would not be able to complain about immigrants via your smartphone.

Workout for your brain: think of the people around you. At work, in the streets, in politics, in sports, entertainment and in your family. Now think how your world would look like without immigration.
