No disrespect to this gentleman, but I'm pretty sure the "American Dream" is shared by people of nearly EVERY country. There's nothing uniquely American about wanting to succeed. Hell, we don't even supply the freedoms of other places in order to achieve any dreams. Look up places like Hong Kong. I get it, "The Hong Kong Dream" doesn't have the same ring.

Good stuff. The bottom line is don’t be a “ flojo”. The American dream is here for the taking. All hard working immigrants and Americans, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or gender are going to blow right by all the “flojos” listening to Bernie, Waters, Warren and AOC and will be able to buy their Porsche one day. Don’t be weak, don’t drink the Kool-aid.

Correction, just American. no such thing as black American, Latino American white American.. just American. We have a beautiful flag to unite under that represents our united states. . Lets start celebrating our unity. It's great to be proud of your heritage, but the celebration of diversity and differences should never be granted more importance than that of unity and harmony.

The greatest thing America has is the Immigrants that survived and escaped Socialism, Marxism, Communism, Fascism, Drug dealers Organized Crime and Evil Governments like my grandfather! He fled the Communist Revolution on the Polish Russian boarder ran away and stowed away on a Swedish freighter to America at 15! Lived on the street and at church shelters, learned English, lied about his age and at 16 joined the U.S.Army! Absolutely praised God and this great country FOR HIS LIFE! Marched in every Patriot America Parade! Him and his son both were in U.S.Army and Post Commanders of the local VFW and his grandchildren became Nursing Supervisors and GNs, police, military, an engineer and myself an EMS PARAMEDIC AND MANAGER! 🇺🇸 GOD BLESS AMERICA! 🙏⛪🇺🇸 🇺🇸🗽TRUMP🇺🇸🦅🇺🇸🏛MAGA🇺🇸

Great story....one of the main problems is you say listen to your family and friends, but sadly these days people families are teaching them that they have no personal responsibility and the gov is there to support you an give you handouts. How can young people truly succeed when that is how and what they are taught? Just my thoughts, again great vid and story, and congrats on your well deserved success.

Those who don’t want freedom for everyone else are free to leave. Those who want marxism are free to go where they practice that. Those who want sharia, same. Those who are willing to work instead of whining and wanting are welcome. Here’s what I have seen: those with the smallest means give the most. Those who are most privileged whine the most!

Born in Michoacán, became a citizen of the United States when i was 21 yrs old. Now I'm 45 yrs old. My parents crossed the border when I was 1 years old. It was my sister my brother and I that crossed it with them. I dont remembered much but I know the 3rd time we crossed the coyotes took us and my parents couldn't find us for 2 days. Theres stories to tell but this just some stories that born Americans never hear about. People from other countries struggle to come to US for a better life but yet people that were born here have no idea what is to have the American dream come true. I love this country and I will vote this year for Trump. 🇺🇲🇺🇸

To all people conflicted on the topic of illegal immigration... What makes the people who enter our nation without our consent or knowledge anymore special than the people who have to wait YEARS in order to get citizenship? Why do the Democrats believe THEY are more special than the speaker in this video by virtue of breaking our laws?
