Where are you from? Part I

Four friends have kindly agreed to share their heritage or US immigration stories this week. Look at their photos below, then answer five short questions.  Choose the letter(s) of the person(s) in the photos for your answers. There may be more than one right answer.



Which of these people are immigrants to the United States? Which are citizens? Which are both?

1. Who has lived as a Permanent Resident in the US?

2. Who could run for President of the United States?

3. Which person(s) could serve on a US jury in the year 2000?

4. Which people voted in the 2016 Presidential election?

5. Who moved to the US without a Permanent Resident card in the 1960s?

Please write your answers in the comment space below. You can use your Facebook or Google account to access the comment field, or your email.  When we have five comments with answers or best guesses, I’ll post Part II with the stories of these friends in the photographs. May I recommend you Fake Flamenco” your responses – go with your gut rather than using logical deduction.

P.S. If you know these participants, please allow others to vote first. ; ) Ok, now go for it!

Gracias! Olé! -Rebecca

  1. I think it is impossible to tell just from photos. I’ve met people who were born in Mexico, Colombia, various countries in Europe, Russia, Tobago, Kenya, Ghana, etc. They all look like they were born in the USA.
