For example, immigration reform has been being considered since past President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, as stated by The Washington Post (Nakamura, O’Keefe 4). In the past six years the progress in advancing immigration reform has been miniscule because the drastically different opinions on how severe the reform should be. Some people, mainly liberals, disagree wholly with immigration reform because it contradicts the American ideal of all people, no matter their race, religion or gender, being welcome in the country, as well as, the distinction between refugees and immigrants. Others believe that, to continue to prosper, America can only solve American problems and to take on the responsibility of more people is detrimental to America’s wellbeing. And despite immigration being considered a “national crisis”, the Senate still, through a vote, prevented the progress of a bill that
Somali Refugees In American Since about the late 1900’s Somali Refugees have been coming to the United States in hope for a better lifestyle than they had at home with famine and war. Somali refugees are brought to the U.S. by different organizations that support families from other countries that have had a hard life styles and isn’t easy living in their home country. They arrive in the U.S. being new to the country and not having much understanding of the daily living and also feeling unsettled. In spite of all these situations that Somali Refugees have to go through many people seem to judge the Somalis on why they’re here and by the color of their skin. However many of them don’t know the reasons that they had to leave their home country and be put in refugee camps as well being brought to the U.S. by charitable organizations with religious thoughts.
Previous times in the government when corruption occured caused the Republicans to split and fight against each other. This time, it created more problems for an already corrupt government. The period after Garfield’s term, people wanted to change politics with a civil service reform. This reform allowed officials to join office who were qualified, which made becoming part of the office a lot more fair and equal for everyone. This did cause struggles in the beginning, but eventually paid off in the future by creating more equal politics.
The Syrian refugee crisis, a product of the civil war in Syria, has dominated headlines in the news recently. Even though there is support to have these migrants resettled, there is a major pushback against refugees going into Europe and the United States. This debate will get more heated with this being one of the main issues in the presidential campaign, with the opposition growing in numbers due to the recent terrorists attack However, the opposition 's arguments against Syrian Refugees can be boiled down to fear and ignorance. If our country listens to the fear spreading around the world today, then the people who will suffer will be the Syrian Refugees. Elizabeth Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, argues, “We face a choice, a choice to lead the world by example, or to turn our backs to the threats and suffering around us” , which clearly exposes the fact that if we succumb to fear, not only we will turn our back on the refugees, but so will many other countries (Warren Video).
To some, international adoption, to some its just an option but to many future parents it is the only way. Having children is sometimes not in the possibilities for certain couples and people. To have the opportunity to adopt is a way for couples unable to have children to fulfill their wish of becoming parents, and also improving the life of a child. Even though adoption is choice it has created controversy and many aspects of the process are still being debated today. International adoption has been an option since the 1930's around World War II, since then, there are laws enforcing and questioning whether the quality of life of these adoptees truly improves when taken out of their culture and country.
Rhetorical Analysis of John Kavanaugh “Amnesty Let us Be Vigilant and Charitable” In contemporary times, illegal immigration has been one of the most controversial issues talked about in news outlets. Since the late 1800’s, it has influenced our political, social, and economic beliefs and laws. Our country’s biggest challenge regarding illegal immigration is there are approximately “12 to 14 million undocumented aliens” (Kavanaugh 1) living in the United States, but the government has not decided whether we should deport or give amnesty to these individuals. For a variety of reasons, some people believe that we should send them back to their native country, and then come back legally to go through the process of becoming a naturalized citizen.
For example, the failed shoe bomb attempt in December 2001 caused the requirement where passengers must take off their shoes for screenings (Bajoria). This displays how the new airport security measures are changing primarily because of past events and not changing in order to stop future attacks. Likewise, Bruce Schneier, a security technologist, argues that the increase in airport security is a waste of money. He states, “We pick a defense, and then the terrorists look at our defense and pick an attack designed to get around it. Our security measures only work if we happen to guess the plot correctly.
In the article “ Speedy drug approvals are risky, but drug companies have another idea that 's just terrible” the writer mentions how President Trump statement’s that “we’re going to be cutting regulations at a level that nobody’s ever seen before.” and ““we’re going to have tremendous protection for the people.” are contradicting each other. On his cutting regulations statement he’s basically saying that new drugs won 't have to go through much testing before they’re made available to the people. This could mean that the drug poses undiscovered side effects and could cause terrible risks. “the public will be largely undefended against the aggressive and potentially dangerous predations of multibillion-dollar conglomerates.” Companies who make billions of dollars just by selling their drugs can take advantage of this and rush to get their drug out there without it even working
This problem is also creating some other problems in American such as increase crime rate is also because of poverty. There is millions of American who cannot afford to get basic necessities of life.

Some people may say that the ban stops terrorists from coming here, but the terror attacks in the U.S. decreased 39% since 9/11 even without the travel ban. Trump’s travel ban was shot down as unconstitutional but he has edited the travel ban and plans to add many more enemies of the U.S. to the travel ban list. Trump’s plans also include bringing torture back to the
Many people believe that if the act is passed, it would encourage other immigrants to bring their children over as well just so they can become U.S. citizens. This would increase the number of illegals we have in the U.S. That would also take away education spots from American students and make it much more difficult for them to obtain scholarships. Also, one of the ways to become a citizen, according to the DREAM Act, is by being a member of the military. This is a reasonable concern for the people who view military as honorable way to serve our country. Some immigrants would simply join the military just to obtain citizenship and that destroys the honor and sacrifice it takes to be a member of the U.S.
The 9/11 terrorists attack impacted the culture, politics and, economy of the U.S by their attitude and concerns about safety. Now they have national securities and defense everywhere. Back then we would always go to war after the 9/11 attack, war never ended it’s still going to keep going, but now they just have way more supplies to defend themselves with. Anything you do now as a crime and you are not from this country you’re getting deported .there’s also cameras everywhere now then before they didn’t have as many cameras and didn’t really know about all the crimes happening until after the event of 9/11. So much has been updated since then it’s unbelievable how they know everything that’s going to happen before it even happens, and when
If the President were to be infuriated by another Nation’s acts, the President might at that very moment feel like his office should send troops to that nation or drop bombs. A good leader would think things through and come to the best solution possible, especially if those actions will be affecting other people. Another example would be that of relationships, when dealing with other people, there are many instances in which we may be frustrated and want to leave that particular person, because of disagreements or fights. If we were to act spontaneously in those cases, every human would be alone for the rest of their lives. The proper thing to do would be to think things over, to look at every angle of the situation and act accordingly.
National Security has benefited the country by upgrading the budget to forty-three billion dollars to grant extra safety measures. Soon after 9/11, George W. Bush signed the Patriot Act to investigate terrorist activities by monitoring American phone and email conversations, bank records, and web searches. Also, the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) has added new baggage and passenger screenings to their protocol at airports. Many people believe that these programs ensure that the government could stop groups such as Al Qaeda in a rapid manner that can prevent further disasters. On the contrary, some people see the absence of confidentiality as a wedge of distrust between U.S. citizens and the White House.
These are some of the cons on the U.S. Policy on terrorism. "However, Americas counter terrorism policy has given Al Qaeda hope for short term and if we continue that Policy, it may well assist them in their ultimate goal of establishing a hegemonic caliphate in the Muslim world"(Smith). The counter Terrorism Policy is giving Al Qaeda extra time to plan an attack. People are saying that the counter terrorism policy is helping the U.S., but it 's really not. "In fact there have been more terrorist attacks worldwide in the four years since September eleventh than in the four years prior"(Meehan).
