Growing up, I heard stories about my great-grandfather, Adolph Munter, who immigrated to the U.S. from Prussia and was considered German. He was publicly and privately attacked during World War I because of his anti-war and "pro-German" activities, and was investigated by the OSS, the precursor to the FBI.

The march on Wednesday for immigration rights was peaceful and organized. I was impressed with the wide range in ages, and the primarily Latina and Latino makeup of the march. I think my community has been enriched with these new neighbors and I am hopeful for their efforts and the efforts at the national level to reform immigrants' rights.
