(WASHINGTON TIMES) President Obama didn’t use the word “immigration” in his Thanksgiving Day address, but he made it clear he’s thankful for immigrants, among the nation’s many blessings that he enumerated.

“We give thanks for the men and women who set sail for this land nearly four centuries ago, risking everything for the chance at a better life — and the people who were already here, our Native American brothers and sisters, for their generosity during that first Thanksgiving,” Mr. Obama said.

Following the Pilgrims, Mr. Obama said he is giving thanks Thursday “for the generations who followed — people of all races and religions, who arrived here from every country on Earth and worked to build something better for themselves and for us.”
