There is a huge problem facing us today in America: the excessive amount of money the U.S. spends on foreign aid. The problem occurs when we send large amounts money overseas which leads the poorer classes of American people out to dry. This money could be used to help our children and our homeless across the country. We have 560,000 homeless people in America, while we send 41.2 billion dollars overseas (“State Data”). We are focusing on other nations people while our on people are going homeless. We need to be focusing on ourselves and using that money to end those problems and improve our education systems so the poorer classes of American’s can be better prepared for life. Excessive money spent on foreign aid is the biggest issue facing our generation because: The US being the good guys in every situation, Foreign aid being used while our on people struggle, and foreign aid could be used for something better such as homeland security.
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
There is a lot of pain and suffering in the world. From natural disasters to civil wars, men, women, and children have been running away towards a higher quality of life then before. Refugees are an important issue that needs to talked about since the number of refugees only grows with no sign of stopping. I believe that we as Americans should open our arms to these “huddled masses,” and allow them into our country.
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.
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 foundations for protecting refugees and migrants are a humane approach to human suffering and adherence to international humanitarian law. An improved screening and resettlement process would also improve the West's muddled response to today's displacement crisis.
Why do we still have an immigration issue? After all most of the immigrants live in the fear of being deported and torn away from their families. Even though they are just trying to live the American dream. This is not how our ancestors were treated since after all America is a country founded by immigrants. So undocumented immigrants should get a pathway to citizenship in America.
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.
Leaders and governments around the world have labelled refugees as being a burden on their country either directly or indirectly. These leaders only see them as people who are trying to get into their country to escape the civil war, but fail to see that the refugees are also risking their lives in the process. At present, there are approximately 54.5 million refugees that are displaced, the largest refugee crisis the world has ever seen and they have nowhere to go. The question of doing the right thing and taking them in has been squashed due to various reasons and it appears to be that each country has adopted the ‘each man for himself’ policy by stating that it is their duty to only look after its citizens and no one else.
Syria’s population is 90% Muslim and 10% Christian. The majority of Canadian Muslims live in the province of Ontario. Ottawa has many Muslim and Syrian people in it, along with a plethora of different nationalities such as Chinese, Indian, Lebanese, African and many more. Multiple different types of religion are also practiced in Ottawa such as Hindu, Buddhism and Sikh. Ottawa has approximately 180 Syrian refugees already settled and plan to welcome as many as two thousand more. There are several Mosques so the Syrian family will have plenty of areas to choose from to practice their religion. They will find comfort in being surrounded by the familiarity of other Syrians and Muslims.
“Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.” Immigration laws have inevitably resulted in a situation where many illegal immigrants live and work in the United States, but it is also an issue that has been blown out of proportion by the media and politicians, such as Donald trump. Illegal aliens are accused of bringing drugs and statutory offense to the United States, as well as take away millions of jobs and take away trillions of dollars from the country for getting free healthcare and food stamps. The united states has had an increase of 20% in the immigrant population in the past 10 years and it went from 35.1
In a time of crisis or struggle, one must stay determined, confident and helpful to stand out so they can speak out for people who can’t help themselves. Although, staying quiet and calm lures no attention and harbors safety. Some examples include how one being brave and helpful has a positive impact, how one can voice their opinions to stand out and what one can do to help others in need.
it is even being brought up in current presidential debates. There are some citizens in the United
against a certain group of people, which should not be the basis for the United States’ policy on the matter. These laws disregard the principles upon which this country was built and ultimately serve no purpose since the exclusion of one ethnicity is quickly forgotten when the next alleged threat manifests.
What is the American dream? Who does this dream really apply to? And why is this still a driving force behind the beliefs of Americans? These are all questions I encountered when I thought about guest workers in America. Guest workers are basically people who leave their country to work in foreign nations for specific time periods, and then return home. And they take up specifically manual labor jobs. I believe guest workers should not be permitted inside the United States because this results in unjust treatment and a degrading economy and lifestyle for both, the migrant workers and citizens. And just to be clear I’m against specifically the concept of guest workers but not immigration as a whole.
