[America]’s higher education system is excellent, both in terms of quality and accessibility. Here anybody can go to college. Many countries simply can’t accommodate many students. And by the way, most people who came here in the seventies came to get an education. They didn’t wake up one morning and say, ‘I’m going to America to be free.’ they said, ‘I’ll go there to get an education.’ That’s an important distinction. It was only after they were here for a while that they fully appreciated the freedoms we enjoy here.
