Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the notion of the US as a unique country of immigration? France has an explicit tradition of immigration (and flows of pretty strogn intensity as well) for just as long as the US, even if integration did not take the same route.

And as has been discussed in earleir diaries, many European countries have long had fairly intense immigration flows, even if there was not any explicit integration policy, and a universalist, values-based integrationist message as in France and the USA.

But the USA are not unique today, and they were not a century ago in that respect.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
