The Monarch butterfly became a symbol of immigration due to its ability to move freely across North American borders. Like many immigrants, they move to survive. However, in our current political climate, immigrants — both documented and undocumented — feel threatened by deportations and are often stereotyped as criminals. This piece serves as a reminder that we are a nation of immigrants — we can only continue to thrive if we welcome, educate, and provide opportunities for those in need so that one day, they are empowered to move our country forward.
