“I definitely think that immigrants are an incredible part of the success of the American experiment,” he said.

Lubetzky came to the U.S. when he was 16 years old and said immigrants are valuable to the U.S. because they realize “how great America is.”

“They recognize the values of respect, dignity, meritocracy, freedom, rule of law that help us thrive,” he told Claman.
