The plight of the Vietnamese immigrant in America was a necessary one to tell. It is a story which Viet Thanh Nguyen has lived his entire life, all that he needed was a catalyst to write it. One came in 2011, when, as a part of the Arab Spring, Syrian rebels attempted to overthrow the Assad regime. Their attempt lead to a bloody conflict, which still rages to this day, as well as the displacement of over 11 million people, as of the most recent statistics. While it may not have been the worldwide migrant crisis it is today, by 2013 enough people were forced out of Syria that the world took notice.
The estimated number of refugees leaving their own country since World War II is one hundred million ("Refugee”). A refugee is a person who has left their country because of fear of their safety due to violence, race, religion, or war. Supporting and solving today’s refugee crisis is especially controversial because of the current events, financing, and security issues. ("Refugee Facts”). Climate change and natural disasters sometimes cause people to leave their homes or countries.
Oral diseases are preventable, however; many children miss tremendous hours of school due to mouth pain or toothaches. A lot of children in Colorado have lack of accessing interventions and one of the most common chronic diseases for those children is a cavity that can easily be treated. More the 41% of working age children don't have benefits that cover dental and 60% of adults over the age 65 have no dental insurance too. Accessing to a regular preventive care and interventions is very important to help Colorado win this battle against oral disease (10 Colorado winnable battles). 8.
Fleming uses statistics to describe how dangerous it is for refugees to cross the Mediterranean, Fleming stats, “ By August of that same year over 2000 refugees had already died trying to cross the Mediterranean.” By using this statistic Fleming tries to convey to the audience just how dangerous and deadly it can be for refugees who are trying to flee the war torn country of Syria. And that if they aren't killed by the fighting going on in their own county they are in just as much danger trying to flee their country. Fleming continues to use logos to appeal to her audience by stating that half of Syria's population which as of 2014 was at 22 million has been forced to relocate from their homes or flee the country altogether. Lastly Fleming uses statistics from the day Doah's boat was attacked and capsized to show just how tragic that trip was, Fleming stats, “ Only 11 out of the 500 people onboard that refugee boat survived.” With this statistics it really help to shed light on how desperate the situation is in Syria and how dangerous it is for Syrian refugees trying to flee their
Due to the crisis in Syria, refugees are fleeing the country and Europe has opened their borders to them, yet, if you look closely, approximately 70% of the Muslims invading are grown men, many of whom are criminals and soldiers. According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, of the Syrian refugees, “72% have been male,
Injusticia: The United States Role in the Guatemalan Civl War “When you are convinced your cause is just, you fight for it.”- Rigoberta Menchu. Menchu is an activist for indigenous Mayan people, especially in the aspect of land ownership and poverty. Mayan people make up a large percentage of the Guatemalan population. More than half of the population of Guatemala lives below the national poverty line and thirteen percent of the population lives in extreme poverty. This saddening statistic is largely a result of a 37-year civil war that displaced many families that, even today, are still trying to find refuge.
I was a child when I moved to California and it was really hard for me to attend school because of the bullies who told me I 'm not good enough and that I should ¨go back to Iraq to get killed.¨ I was struggling a lot in school. My grades were not good at all because I had no focus on school, but on the students who build me. Students
Despite our superiority, America still has a plethora of problems from within, one of them is a corrupted system of law enforcement. Our own law enforcement is one of the factors contributing to America’s downfall. What people think is keeping them safe is really just hurting them behind their backs. A publicist by the name of Shaun King has taken note that so far as of July 17, 2017, 660 people have been killed by police or some type of law enforcement. That would make this year alone to be one of the deadliest years since people had begun tracking this statistic back in 2013.
This article explains the situation of Alisa, who was disheartened that due to her undocumented status, she was excluded from financial aid and would be unable to attend college like 65,000 other undocumented students that graduate from high school every year. This is a common situation that many undocumented students go through. Alisa’s life story can be used as an example to show how it does not matter if you are the top of your class, undocumented students are just considered undocumented immigrants. Their rights are oppressed and this is a strong point I would like to state in my essay. I could use this article to show how the DACA act could have changed this situation if Trump continues to push for the repeal.
Although supporters of the foster care system have valid points, this is unfortunately not the case for every child. This system is fraught with a myriad of problems. Opponents point out that the system is overburdened with children in need of a home. For example “ In California...the number of foster youth has tripled in the last 20 years” (TLC 1) and there are not enough families to host them. The children not placed in foster homes are put into group homes which are often underfunded and understaffed.
Immigration Issues There is many differences between the issues of Syrian immigration and the immigration of Latino’s in the U.S. First of all, the issues with the Syrian immigrants are way different than the immigration issues with the Latino’s. For example, Syrian people are fleeing their hometown because of a war. The war started in March of 2011, in part of the Arab Spring. Thousands of Syrians fled their country every day. They often decided to finally escape after seeing their neighborhoods bombed or family members’ kills.
The reason of why Hazel took the non-paying job at New Hope School in Boise City was because she felt bad about the school not getting the proper support that the school needs in order to run smoothly. Another reason of why New Hope School was broken and couldn’t pay the teachers was because the farmers had stop paying taxes which led the school to go bankrupt without no support from the government nor the president. Hazel had a newborn baby girl named Ruth Nell; she died on dust pneumonia when she was just a year

There are about 2,000,000 millions of children that always get sent off to foster care, because they are not wanted. My question is how would it make a difference sending him away because he is not living the right way? It will only make him worse than he is now. Foster Care is the worst place to send a child. The reason why is because a foster care home is where kids are not wanted, and there are many there.
Another similarity is that both the Jews and the Syrians were sent into a type of camp before they were allowed to enter the United States; therefore, they could make sure Syrians and Jews didn 't oppose as a threat to the United States. The camps Syrians and Jews were entered into took many years to complete. Both the Syrians and the Jews fled their country to stay safe. Syrians are trying to escape to stay safe from war and Jews tried to escape Europe in the 1930 's to stay safe from the Nazis. Syrians are in a very similar situation as in today with war and chaos just like the Jews were with the Holocaust in the
