The lives of refugees are turned “inside out” out when they are forced to flee because they have to leave the only home they have ever known and try to figure out a way to leave their old lives behind. They are not leaving their country because they want to but because they are forced to and it can feel like
Mexican Americans have immigrated and emigrated to Americas since before the Mexican American war of 1848. Immigration of Chicanos has been happening for a very long time, but the only difference is that it is now becoming a problem. Before the border was created Mexicans would legally cross to America, with no immigration problems, until 1924. When the border was created, Mexicans and Chicanos no longer has access to their old Chicano lives. Children continue to illegally be brought to America in search of better opportunities. America has had Chicano culture since the Mexican American war, and the treaty of Wadalupe Hidalgo was created. Mexican Americans continue the Chicano tradition of crossing the border regardless what the laws say, because there are times where Mexicans feel like they have no other choice. DACA is a bill called the dream act that was passed by the Obama
The Holocaust was the mass murdering of Jews, politicians, prisoners of war, and social minorities by Adolf Hitler’s idea called the “Final Solution”, which was the idea of the Jew’s extinction (The Holocaust). The Holocaust mainly took place in Middle Europe, because the majority of Concentration and Death camps were in Poland and Germany (Blohm 6).The people that were involved in the Holocaust were mainly Jews and the Nazis, but there were others who played roles such as the minority races, the disabled, and the Allied Forces (The Holocaust).The Holocaust is a time in history when millions of people were persecuted in Europe by being sent to live in ghettos and eventually being deported to concentration camps where they were systematically annihilated until the Allied forces liberated the remaining survivors.
The number of legal, and illegal immigrants have risen over the years, which has stirred more debate about immigration. Some think it’ll help the economy, and the others think that it’s affecting the economy, but in reality, immigration has been beneficial to a degree, but there are negative effects as well.
The number of refugees has doubled since 1992 from 25 million to 40.3 million. Refugees are people who are forced to leave their home because of war, persecution, or natural disaster. Jordan, Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, and Iran have a combined 9,379,400 refugees. Although many individuals believe that refugees are not beneficial to society, people should accept others from different walks of life because this country was founded on immigrants, they make communities safer, and refugee law are extremely successful when resettled.
I believe this article was written from a conservative’s point of view. First text says “we’re starting to see change in the media narrative”. Second text says “It doesn’t happen immediately, but everything with Latinos points to a very typical pattern of integration in American life in a generation or two.” Third text says “let’s hope we see more of these kinds of pieces in the days and weeks leading up to the debate on Capitol Hill.” The person who wrote this article is very cautious about change being done with the Mexican immigrants. Many other people are arguing that Immigration is a threat to the American identity, but this person does not right away agree with it.
Melissa Fleming, head of communications for the United Nations commissioner for refugees, speaks about the Syrian refugees fleeing to Europe and the conditions they faced while leaving the country. Fleming’s purpose is to inform everyone of how rough one’s life in Syria has become. She also wants everyone to know what they go through to survive and get to a better country. These refugees are faced with many hardships along the way, some not even making it to safety.
For years, immigration has been an issue towards the U.S. government, continuously going back and forward between two different sides of the debate. Many political figures, including Congress and the Presidents have mentioned immigration, but so far, not much has changed. As of 2016, there are 11 million undocumented people, living in fear of what might happen to their families. Although it is true that they may be here illegally, these undocumented residents should receive a path to citizenship because it is costly to break apart families, they help our economy, and the U.S is based off immigrants, their families, and their ideas, so they should therefore be given a “path to citizenship”.
The Susan Dominus article “The Displaced: Hana” is humanizing. By retelling a day in the life of Hana Abdullah, this article puts a story and a face to the well-known Syrian refugee crisis. This mass displacement was a news headline heard worldwide that we’ve eventually grown desensitized to. Giving this crisis a face turned it more personal, showing that the war effects even the ones not knowing why it’s even taking place. For example, Hana often would say that she wishes she was back in her home. Instead, she performs strenuous labor in Lebanon in order to provide for her family. Hana’s story is a reminder of their unwelcomed presence, though the refugees are innocent and simply trying to survive. She is an example of youth and childhood
Refugees all over the world flee their home and have experienced the Universal Refugee Experience, which is a refugee’s expedition through deprivations. When refugees do leave home very salient possessions can be abandoned and their safety is at risk when refugees find a new home, they face adapting to many different things, different people with different attitudes can be met and family members can be departed from each other. Refugees feel miserable when they are turned “inside out” and are lighthearted when they are “back
it is even being brought up in current presidential debates. There are some citizens in the United
Recently, I have read your controversial and callous article ‘If Britain is prepared to provide an all-inclusive resort service for asylum seekers, the least they can do is wear a bloody wristband.’ From a student with a family member who has experienced being a refugee, I know that the issues regarding asylum seekers and refugees are critical in the modern society. Therefore, I feel that your article, mostly oversimplified and prejudiced, could mislead lots of readers to have undesirable views on those people who are in need.
Do you feel safe going to school with kids from other countries, or sending your kids to school with kids from other countries? “Few people can be happy unless they hate some other person, nation, or creed.” Bertrand Russell. The public school system has been tolerant on the reinforcement given to illegal immigrants. This is a problem because they are using the money from taxpayers of the public schools when they pay little to no taxes to help contribute to that revenue. Illegal immigration has been a problem in America since the mid 1800s. Illegal immigrants in public schooling is a recent problem, and the laws being passed to protect them are not sufficient enough along with the government aid. Illegal immigrants should not be allowed to use civilian money to achieve public education in America.
In the beginning, of every refugee story there is always uncertainty about the new life ahead of them in their new country. Refugees carry a lot of unseen wounds from the war and being resettled is like starting life over again. But the kids don’t always fit in and some don't feel that they have any meaning in life which can cause major problems. Many teenagers that have become refugees go through these issues and explain “Everything completely changed. One minute we had everything, then we had nothing…everything seemed so useless” (Children of War). All people of all ages that have fled their
The current civil war involving the Syrians is the largest humanitarian tragedy of our time. Innocent people are dying and more than 11 million Syrians are being moved out of their towns, homes, and their country and sent to other countries to try and stay safe. One main point is that Syrians need our help and we need to spread awareness to people to help the Syrians through this difficult transfer. These millions of Syrians are fleeing to Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, and Germany.
