Greetings and Welcome To America, Subash Lamichhane!

Greetings and Welcome To America, Subash Lamichhane!

By John Lillpop

What a delight it has been to hear and read of the journey of Subash Lamichhane, culminating with his arrival in Atlanta on January 7.

Welcome to America, Subash!

You may have been lead to believe that immigrants are not welcome here. Nothing could be further from the truth!

America has always valued the arrival of newcomers from all corners of the globe. The energy and fresh perspective that immigrants bring with them are the backbone of the innovative spirit that has made America great.

Newcomers who wait their turn in line, follow the rules, and respect the rule of law, as you have done, are greeted with open arms and are most welcome in the American family.

Again, welcome to America and best wishes for a bright and prosperous future!
