"No way out" to a liberal is a function of what they have or what they earn, not how hard they work and the sacrifices they make. Liberals therefore can't explain how some immigrants can come to America without resources and without even being able to speak English, and within three generations, their descendants are going to Ivy League schools. So, liberals ignore these people, pretending that they don't exist.

No, we celebrate them. But we don't pretend that a few anecdotes make a pattern, and we don't pretend there aren't certain cultural and historical patterns, and the interplay between cultures, that make some immigrants more likely to succeed than others.
