The confusion is understandable.  Alot of people seem to think that learning the Pledge of Allegiance automatically makes them an American.
 
 
And the Merriam-Webster on-line dictionary would be a handy way for you to improve your English:
 
Main Entry: im·mi·grant
Pronunciation: 'i-mi-gr&nt
Function: noun
: one that immigrates
 
a : a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence
 
b : a plant or animal that becomes established in an area where it was previously unknown
