Immigrants wanted to be seen as Americans, and to “melt” into American culture. They wanted freedom and opportunity of a new life with employment, health benefits, a roof over their heads and food on the table. Hanneh Hayyeh, an immigrant, wanted the beauty that she believed America could only offer to her. The beauty she thought would be free ends up robbing her and costing much more than she imagined, “someone who got nothing but only money will come in here and get the pleasure from all this beautifulness that cost me the blood of my heart.” (Anzia Yezierska, “The Lost Beautifulness” & “Soap and Water” 8)
