George Washington Discourages Immigration

George Washington

First President of the United States (1789-1797)

There is no need of encouraging immigration: “My opinion, with respect to emigration, is that except of useful mechanics and some particular descriptions of men or professions, there is no need of encouragement, while the policy or advantage of its taking place in a body (I mean the settling of them in a body) may be much questioned; for, by so doing, they retain the Language, habits, and principles (good or bad) which they bring with them.” [In a Letter to John Adams, November 15, 1794, The Writings of George Washington, edited by Worthington Chauncey Ford, Vol. XII, p. 489, 1889.]

    Mark was recommended to me by one of my friends who has also obtained positive results with him regarding visa applications and I’m recommending him to another friend as well who is starting the E2 application process. Two thumbs up!
