BROOKLYN - A musician has released a song on the Internet celebrating positive contributions by immigrants to the country, while also sparking conversation about racism and bigotry.

Emilio Estefan wrote and produced the song, "We're All Mexican."

He says that the title symbolizes the targeting of immigrants crossing the border while noting that anyone can be a victim of hatred.

Activists say the title is also a nod to the old slogan, "We're all Americans."
