It's not a hard concept. Americans are mostly immigrants shipped here for various reasons from other countries. Hence no national language. Why are people shocked & upset by the diversity that brings? 

 **Native Americans exempt lol I'm referring to those that claim America is not the land of immigrants**

My Mexican American grandfather met my English grandma overseas during the war.

My great grandparents dad's grandparents. Fled Cuba in the 1920's. They stowed away on a cargo ship headed for Florida

Well, I'm directly descended from someone on the Mayflower, so I don't think my memory is that short.  Once it's my family has been here for nearly 400 years, I think I get to claim this country as my own.

my family came of their own accord on one side, the other side was 'shipped'

My parents weren't shipped here. I'm pretty sure they flew. :)
