Mario Cuomo on Immigration
Former Democratic Governor of New York
Democrats believed we were duty bound to lead this country out of the shadows of discrimination and into the sunlight of equality. "We speak for the minorities who have not yet entered the mainstream. We speak for ethnics who want to add their culture to the magnificent mosaic that is America," as my father, Mario Cuomo, said at the Democratic National Convention is 1984. We believe that diversity is strength and not a weakness, and that is why we open our arms to new legal immigrants as an infusion of talent to our great democracy.
