Every time he drove his car, he ran the risk of being stopped by a police officer and getting arrested. In the Macrosystem layer, the 1968 law called the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), had created challenges for any illegal Mexican who had successfully crossed the border into America. The law expanded the border patrol and sought to punish employers who hired unauthorized immigrants. Isaias could not get a good job, because he was considered an unauthorized immigrant. Even though he applied to the DACA program, he and his family were still considered illegal immigrants.
In 2009 he introduced the bill CIR-ASAP (Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America 's Security and Prosperity Act). This bill was created to help undocumented immigrants obtain citizenship that had a noncriminal history and to improve the border security. With the accomplishment of CIR-ASAP, Gutiérrez embarked to tackle

“New policies and laws, discoveries that took place afterward were the Scott Act, which would continue to prevent Chinese immigrants back into the United States after leaving over 20,000 immigrants with their Certificates of Return outside of the United States, and because of this act being passed many Chinese immigrants were often left out of the economy. The government, Congress was responsible for this act being passed as a way to underrepresent immigrants into the US and not allow people that weren’t willing to contribute overall, leading to more tension and conflict even after 6 years of the Exclusion Act being passed”. (Immigration History) The government and Congress were responsible for this act being passed as a way too underrepresented immigrants into the US and not allowing people that weren’t willing to contribute overall, and that led to more tension and conflict even after 6 years of the Exclusion Act being passed.

Right in during the peak of the season the government came in and took a major part of his working force because the workers were not legal. This isn’t an easily avoidable problem, as an employer my uncle is not allowed to doubt the numbers that the workers give him, and he can’t try and prove they are illegal. H-2A could solve this problem, but on the other hand, it doesn’t work for
Congressional Gridlock Congressional Gridlock is a recurring issue in America’s political system, and it is crippling the efficacy of the governments ability to lead the country to overall prosperity. Gridlock, in terms of politics, refers to the inability for the political system to adequately satisfy the needs of the citizens in that country. In reference to Congress, a gridlock is when the people cannot be satisfied due to disagreements in legislation that hinder the process of making laws. One recent consequence of congressional gridlock is the congressional stand still concerning gun violence in our nation and the oppositions on what affect, if any, it has on gun laws. Another example of a congressional gridlock is the lengthy wait for
In Central America there are high levels of violence, particularly, in regard to gangs who are specifically targeting women. Resulting in families fleeing to the United States through the southern border. In an attempt to stop illegal immigration the current administration has been placing migrants, when caught, in detention centers. This is done as a message to others to not come over, and also as a holding place until they can be sent back to their home country. This becomes more controversial because of who is being held in these centers.
Reason #1 and Evidence One of the reason stated is that this law allows immigrants to be legal here if they've stayed here for 5+ years. This is important because 4.2 million immigrants have been here for 5+ years. In Obama’s speech he stated, “If you've been in America for over 5 years… you will be able to stay in this country.” Even though this new
In times such as now, immigration policy is a topic of controversial and emotional discussion. The key in having educational, progressive, and prosperous conversations is understanding the theoretical foundations behind the argument that a person stands for or believes in. Having factual evidence to support ideas on concepts such as: the opportunities that immigrants bring to a country, what the international rules actually are that govern the entry and exit of people from one country to another, and the causes, trends, and consequences of international immigration. Finding reason and support for these claims can take the discussion behind immigration policy from one of heated and emotional argument to one of educational and beneficial conversation.
This program was introduced by President Barack Obama in 2012 and was aimed at protecting people who were brought to the United States under the age of 16 from deportation. The program required applicants to be in or have graduated high school, to have no criminal record, and other requirements. It provided applicants who were eligible with a two-year, renewable permit, and although it granted work authorization, it did not grant legal status. Approximately 800,000 DACA recipients, also referred to as “Dreamers,” are currently being protected by the program. However, on September 5, 2017, the Trump administration announced that it would end DACA, declaring the executive order that created it unconstitutional.
“The American story is a story of immigration. I would be the last person who would say immigrants are not important to America.” — Phil Graham, circa 1960. This quote may be from the mid-20th century, but it keeps its significance with the everlasting controversy on immigration and immigration laws. However, this is not the only time that the United States has experienced immigration controversies.
Our policies on illegal immigration can diminish the problem by enforcing immigration laws, revoking birthright autonomy, and demanding proof of citizenship when applying for social services. Immigration has become a major problem in this country and needs to be restricted. Our economic implications would be beneficial towards the U.S. economy. Without the crutch of illegal immigrants holding us back, our U.S. economy can prosper more than ever. Due to the current economic slowdown, labor demands had been reduced and has forced many out of work.
