Ethnic parades and old ethnic neighborhoods, with non-us flags flying, refute your claim that people back in the day had to sacrifice their heritage.

Its one thing to move somewhere and become socially acclimated. I do not believe that is as deep as having been born there, of the same blood, and raised in that environment. That doesn't mean an immigrant won't have pride or feel a kinship to their new home. But I question if that affinity runs as deep as an indigenous persons.
Ah, the broad generalizations of how other people feel based on ones on perspective.
That's called projecting.
