Today, 11 million immigrants call California home. California's immigrants are the founders of billion dollar companies and the backbone of the state's essential workforce. This is nothing new. For 200 years, California has been imagined as a land of perpetual spring, a gold soaked coast promising its new arrivals. Better things. But California's story is not just about welcome. It's also about exclusion. Since the moment California was invented, Californians have been arguing about who belongs here. This is why we need the California Museum of Immigration, because to understand who we are now, why immigration matters, we need to tell our history, all of it.
