St. Patrick's Day celebrates the role of all US migrants
"The Irish were the first ethnic group to achieve success in the US and the parades in honour of St Patrick were a powerful manifestation of that success.
"For the immigrants who succeeded them – the Italians, Jews, Greeks, Poles and others – on the long climb up the ladder of success, the Irish became a model of what could be achieved with determination, hard work and a belief in the American Dream.
"What St Patrick’s Day really became over time was a holiday that honoured all the diverse peoples that have contributed to the greatness of America."
