The digital media VOX published this week an article that shows how the United States is a "nation of immigrants": a place where everyone's family has, at some point, chosen to come to seek freedom or a better life.
In order to understand how the United States was populated and transformed by immigration, Vox analyses different visualizations that allow the reader to understand who's been kept out, who's been let in, and how they've been treated once they arrive throughout the years.
