I think not. I simply cannot condone your statement, disparaging the refugees as it is either over-simplistic or falsified; it is our duty to help those people who are desperately in need. Sincerely, Hamin
To Whomever It May Concern, Though there are many different opinions on the matter, the United States should allow refugees from Syria and Iraq to resettle in our country. I feel like this because what is happening to the refugees in their own countries could almost be called a holocaust reprise. They are being targeted because of their religion which is exactly what happened to the Jews in WWII. The refugees are just looking for a place where they can be open about what they believe without being worried that someone will harm them or their family because of this belief. What better place to find this safety than the land of the free?
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.
Remembering how difficult the language was to speak and understand he urged military leaders to use the language in a code. Leaders finally took a chance and recruited 30 Navajos to test out the code.(McCabe) Because the Navajo people didn’t keep birth records many of the Navajos were able to lie about their age and enlist with the original 30, people as young as 15 were enlisted. During training one Navajo dropped out due to undocumented reasons. In the 19th century the US government persecuted the Navajos, forcing the children to stop speaking and learning the language in boarding schools designed to eradicate the Native American culture.(Kirkus Reviews)
He starts with how Europeans rose to power all over the world. He brings up that places such as Africa, Australia, Oceania, India, and Asia, on top of the Americas, were subjected to European rule where the native populations significantly decreased over the upcoming years. This relates to his thesis because he is using a pathos approach to appeal to his audience. For example he writes, “the overarching question for Native peoples in the twenty-first century is: will we survive?” (15).
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.”

America the land of the free and home of the brave. This country is known for allowing the people to make their own choices, but turns out there is a limit to the choices we make or so many have thought until right now. America is all about choices and how these choices influence not only one person, but a whole society. Also how that society impacts and can even force one person to make a decision that is not the society 's or the governments to make. There has been a big argument over unplanned pregnancies.

This week in, las vegas nevada, there was a mass shooting that left 59 people dead. Due to these recent , and horrible, events we are now forced to talk about a topic that has been extremely controversial in our country for some time now, gun control. I am here to talk about my opinion on gun control, how it could fail if not done properly and how the incident in las vegas is affecting our society. You see it in the recent headlines everywhere now “ LAS VEGAS MASSACRE: WHY WE NEED GUN CONTROL”. There's constant bashing towards those who lean to the right of the political spectrum, such as myself , for disliking the concept of gun control.
The majority of this article is emotion appeals. The author draws the conclusion that the way the Republican leaders in the United States are responding to this refugee situation is a way of repeating history. The number inferences made between the current situation and the Holocaust pull at the audience’s emotions. The Holocaust is such an powerful part of history with extreme hate and tragedy that at the mere mention of the word “Holocaust” emotions are being affected. The author furthers this tug at emotions by mentioning the story of St. Louis, reminding the us that United States has turned away people in need before and forced them into a death by ignoring their need for help.
Of course, it is possible to disagree with the view that it tears families apart and instead argue that they need to come with papers so they won 't be deported and if they don 't want to be torn apart from family they can stay back. However, the weight of the evidence is on the other side. What must be remembered is that families should feel safe and should not be forced or threaten to leave home and family. This is fundamentally why families get torn apart and it
Board of education in 1954, focusing on the equal protection clause. Citizens depend on the constitution to make them feel safe and protected, but like Zinn said, “we risk our lives and liberties when we depend on that document to defend them. This is a bad idea that our democracy governs like this. One key fact that Zinn puts out is that the “1st amendment does not determine what we have a right to say and what we want, but it depends on if were courageous enough to speak up the risk of being jailed or fired”. People should not have to worry about losing their lives just because of the simple fact that they are standing up for their rights.
Voltaire is most known for his philosophical ideas including, freedom of speech, love truth and pardon error, God is necessary for governments, the process of thinking logically, and the idea that we are all equal, but virtue separates us. Voltaire knew that it was dangerous to be right when the government was wrong, but governments need to permit freedom of speech among the people. This is, because the people of a country need to the government know when there needs to be a governmental change. François believed that virtue separates us from others, and so we are differentiated by how we treat one another. François Marie Arouet was sent to Tulle in 1715, and imprisoned twice, in 1717 and 1726.
conceptualised as an important factor in influencing credibility. Results are discussed in terms of possible heuristics involved in judgements of an asylum-seeker population, as well as implications for vulnerable asylum seekers whose symptoms do not conform to stereotypes` . Talking about new recruits Juany states that they are not taught about refugee’s rights and options but techniques to identify the lies in asylum seekers narratives. He further says `that if you find inconsistencies you are less likely to believe and so to give them entry. Some people think that exaggerating makes the story more credible and in fact it is the opposite, because then they mix lies with truths and create inconsistencies’
