They could state negative Impacts of immigrants, such as overpopulation, drug trafficking, increase multiculturalism, massive escalation in crime, among others, but otherwise there 's some positive benefits as Dave Reichert and John F. Kennedy states one day, that immigrants are necessary component of economic growth, they enriched and strengthened the fabric of American life, they take the most dangerous works and receive the less gain that any company can give. High rates of immigration are frequently accompanied by militant, and sometimes violent, calls for immigration restriction or deportation by nationalist groups. In the thesis will be explaining the main ideas of the topic. There 's many country 's that have already enacted laws design to make more difficult the life of undocumented immigrants.
In the Chicago land area alone, gentrification plays a huge role. Gentrification is the process of renewal and rebuilding accompanying the influx or middle class of affluent people into deteriorating areas that often displaces poorer residents. In other words, it is when the city tears down a building where people live, to update its area and raises prices so high that tenants cannot afford it any longer, forcing past tenants to move into poorer areas. Hundreds of lower and middle class income people have been afflicted by gentrification in Chicago, but it really isn't as bad as people make it seem, it is a sign of economic growth and improvement. Dave Ross states in his article how gentrification works that, “Many aspects of everyday life are being changed for the better, buildings and parks are renovated and beautiful.
The Dust Bowl, beginning in the 1930s, added to the struggle of American farmers as lands out west in states such as Oklahoma and Kansas were over-plowed, causing the topsoil to become uprooted, creating massive dust storms. These dust storms left the land unusable to farm, displacing many Americans in the agricultural industry. Steinbeck’s The Harvest Gypsies displays the struggles these farmers faced when moving west to California, hoping to find some sort of work. Many displaced farmers lived in squatters’ camps, temporary dwellings for those looking for work. Steinbeck described these camps as having awful living conditions, saying that “From a distance it looks like a city dump, and well it may, for the city dumps are the sources for the material of which it is built.” In The Harvest Gypsies, Steinbeck also describes decreasing morale in the displaced farmers as he says “the dullness shows in the faces…and in addition there is a sullenness that makes them taciturn.” The difficulty of finding adequate work to support a family during the Dust Bowl was extremely high—and as the work was competitive, these farmers implicated the work ethic that began at the beginning of the 20th
Illegal immigration is becoming an increasing problem within the United States of America. The influx of people over the past few years has grown. They hope that coming to this country will bring them good fortune and a life of prosperity. Many illegal immigrants believe they have the right to become citizens even though they came here illegally. Though there are many opinions on the subject of immigration, two viewpoints are Roberto Rodriguez 's article, “The Border on Our Backs,” which supports illegal immigrants gaining citizenship and Star Parker’s article “Se Habla Entitlement”, is against them gaining citizenship.
People were afraid and concerned since they had a major insufficiency of jobs, supplies and shelter. Many companies began to enforce wage cutbacks and increased workload. Relief was not being offered to all the unfortunate Canadians who did not have a job. Many people were laid off from factories which meant that supplies were scarce as not many people could afford to provide for their family’s, people turned to the government to find a solution. I believe that their expectations were much too high as the government was struggling too.
According to Willa Cather, the life on the plains in the west was difficult and hard. Cather adds that people had issues farming, raising animals, as well as going into debt. (Document 3) Because the farmers bought land from the rail companies, they lost a major amount of money. The cost of the land, as well as the cost of transportation of food, made the living as farmers more difficult. Also, at the time the railroad companies began to have issues, so they increased prices for shipping as well as making the middlemen take more money from the farmers.
Illegal immigration causes various economic and political issues and has turned out to be a basis of major debate in countries around the world. However, immigrants may also bring a positive impact to the country. For instance, the USA as a country was entirely built on immigration. Therefore, there is nothing incorrect with the idea of immigration. The issue sets in when immigrants enter a certain country unlawfully.
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.
To do this, they would need more workers to plant, harvest, and care for the plants. This led to the Southern economy depending on both the cotton and African Americans who were enslaved to farm it. On the other hand, the North did not have the geography in which farming could support the economy. Instead it had many rivers and streams. So, the Northerners depended on factories.
They did not have the right to be educated. After the Black Death killed many workers, peasants were in demand for their labor. The nobles and the clergy all lived off on the produce of peasant labor. They received higher wages for their labor. However, criminal activity by nobles, persecution by lords, war, and disease eventually caused oppressed peasants to revolt.
One of the most popular topics today in politics is immigration. Immigration is the process of a person or a group of people moving to a new location with the intention of living there. People often feel very strongly on their views on the matter. Many people are pro-immigration in the United States because they support the idea of the U.S. being the cultural melting pot of the world and because it will improve the immigrants’ overall quality of life. However, many people are anti-immigration due to their concern for safety and the economic health of their country.
Throughout the 1890’s, there were many things that some people believed to be beneficial, and others thought were counterproductive. There were many people who believed the dramatic increase in immigrants from unequal races were causing the disruption in the economy. While others found the increase immigrants was part of America 's job to give people the freedoms they deserve. Another issue was the excess of goods that America had produced. Many looked for ways to increase trade whether that was making allies or taking territory.
Immigration is a very sore subject in this country.People’s beliefs tend to be extreme, either you believe that we should have open borders or believe that we should build a wall around the country. Having immigrants is both an advantage and a disadvantage. Having immigrants in this country makes it more rich in multicultural experiences as well as gives immigrants a safe place to live. Some immigrants may be terrorists which could put our country in danger. America should make the vetting process easier and cheaper so then every immigrant can be legal and screened for terrorist ties.
The issues that interest me personally/politically are immigration and equality. Through the years, immigration has been an issue that has impacted the United States politically on whether what should be done about illegal immigration. As chapter 1 stated, politics is conflictual and the issue of immigration has lasted for so long not because the government dislike immigrants, if not they cannot come into an agreement that could favor both opposing sides. Moreover, citizens always have their views towards immigrants as people taking away their jobs. What they do not see is that immigrants have improved the country’s economy in a fast way that has open many jobs opportunities to immigrants.
Immigration reforms have recently been a brewing topic within the media and has caught many people’s attention. This issue has brought multiple political figures and opinions into the spotlight, each accompanied by a plan and part of a political agenda. Central American immigration into the U.S. still remains unsolved despite the efforts of President Obama, who had promised a comprehensive immigration reform. Some believe that America was built upon immigrants, and that smart immigration practices will benefit the economy and the nation as a whole. However, others feel that immigrants hurt the nation by limiting the number of jobs available to Americans, and bring crime and public insecurity.
