The Land of Immigrants

Cool fact: At least 13 percent of the current members of Congress are immigrants or children of immigrants.

Of course, nearly everyone in the U.S. (roughly 98 percent) is an immigrant or the descendant of an immigrant. An immigrant even occupies the White House (the president’s wife).

  1. The grandma of Donald Trumps father was a born “Heinz”. Donald Trumps father used to lie about the roots of his family and Donald Trump continued to do so till the 80`s by claiming a Swedish (Karlstad) ancestry.


  2. Trump is the grandson of a German immigrant, Frederick Trump, who came from the Palatine village Kallstadt. By the way, also the father of Henry John Heinz – the founder of Heinz Ketchup – came from this tiny Southern German village.
