Everyone chose to come to America?

Everyone chose to come to America?

Everyone did not choose to come to America. Someone told me the other day that everyone in America we’re once immigrants. Native Americans were not, they are said to have lived here first. African Americans did not they were forced here.

Immigration is the movement of non-native people into a country in order to settle there.

For me this implies choice, you are not physically forced like slaves and Native Americans to move elsewhere like past America did. Most of the people who immigrate to the country today come by choice because they are forced out of their country, but they are not forced to come to America or forced to migrate here. I know that there were slaves and Native Americans in my family. No everyone who came here were not immigrants. Some people were forced here or already lived here.
