Nickens1 Terrell, Brunel , Nick Professor Eager COMP 101 2 Novemeber 2014 Birthright Citizenship Besides Native Americans aren’t we all descendants of immigrants? , Irish, Chinese, African, British, Indian, etc. Our Ancestors who came here gave birth to their children, who today are our great grandfathers and grandmothers.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
