The American Immigration Council (formerly the American Immigration Law Foundation) is pleased to present the 2009 "Appreciating America's Heritage" Teachers' Resource Guide. Each year, AILF publishes a new edition of this guide because it is important to promote respect, dignity and an appreciation for everyone in this country, regardless of where you were born.
