Why Did You Come to America?

This week The Guardian crowdsourced reasons why people from all over the world have migrated. Using the hashtag #WhyMigrate, The Guardian heard from people who migrated to South Africa, Poland, the United States, Thailand, and Malaysia. Some of the reasons people gave was to see the world, to become involved in politics, to escape poor living conditions, and for reasons of safety and security.

That made me want to ask those among the US-Congolese population: #WhyMigrate?
