The United States of America has always been the land of opportunity and welcoming new people is still vital to strengthening the fabric of our nation. Each successive wave of immigrants has brought the energy, dreams, and diversity that make America a better and stronger place for all of us.

The American people ask one thing in return: Those who come here share the American Values that guarantee freedom and liberty for everyone.

The core values that make America possible started with our nation’s founding and have been modernized to ensure they protect and bolster all members of society. When we embrace the American way of life, we embrace these values:

  • All people are equal and cannot be discriminated against for any characteristic
  • Freedom of speech may not be limited even if it offends
  • Freedom to practice a religion, or not, is a personal choice
  • All are free to live as they wish as long as they do no harm to others
  • Our Constitution is the law of the land
  • Our laws apply equally to all individuals
  • Religious or cultural practices must respect our values and our laws
  • Service to our neighbors, communities, and country strengths and unites us

The video below celebrates the 240th anniversary of these building blocks of liberty and points toward how they will help the American people create an even better future.

American Values

The Statue of Liberty says, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This call comes with the requirement that to live here people must share our values by supporting the Constitution and laws of this country.
