The article looks at the way immigrants in the U.S. depend on the Internet and networks. The author recalls that Walt Whitman indicated in one of his poems in 1871 how he foresaw people interacting with each other in another era. He states that immigrants can survive through the use of network, even without papers, money and housing. He claims that network is a part of the life, affiliation and work of an immigrant.
