Immigrations has always been an important topic but became a big debatable topic today as the present president has made immigration his signature issues, specifically, the undocumented immigrants. Everybody must’ve crossed this question in their mind, who are these people? Other people can easily define them as foreigners that came in the states without the permission of the U.S government. Some may see them as a threat on the society, and they take away the jobs from Americans. But, these 11 million unauthorized immigrants are just like any other immigrant that took the risk to move to a different country with the hope of having a successful life.

According to the dictionary, arms trafficking, also known as gunrunning, is the illegal trafficking or smuggling of contraband weapons or ammunition. This is a global issue because it gun trafficking happens all over the world. Everyone in the world needs to be informed about the dangers of gun trafficking.

Whilst the number of Jewish immigrants increased through to the 1920s, some Americans gained concern about the high numbers of Jews with different dress, customs and religious worship.
The idea of immigrants being seen as violent people can be traced back to one of the most well known events of the 21st century, the attacks on the Twin Towers, “With many of the 19 hijackers in the terrorist bombings of September 11, 2001, being illegal aliens, the debate over illegal immigration was renewed”(Powell 1).
