One important reason that undocumented residents deserve a path to citizenship is that families will be torn apart. According to Senator Charles Schumer, Upfront Magazine, 2016, “The status quo is unsustainable. Without reform, our immigration laws threaten to tear apart families and force our government to expend resources to deport millions.” What Senator Schumer is saying here is that deporting millions is not only tearing young children away from their parents, tearing
According to a study released last year by the Pew Hispanic Center, as of 2008, 11.9 million illegal immigrants lived in the United States, more than triple the 3.5 million who lived in the country in 1990 (Izumi). Immigration throughout the years has become a major issue in the U.S because of too many immigrants entering the country year after year. The U.S has come to a point whether they should deport the immigrants back to their country. Believe it or not, these immigrants are a big contribution to the U.S. If it wasn’t for them, the U.S economy wouldn’t be where it stands now.
Senator Charles Shumer, writing in an up front magazine, in 2016 says ¨we need to modernize and fix our immigration system, to ensure that the door to America remains as open to the future generations as it was for our ancestors.” What Sen. Shumer is saying here is that Once America had the doors open to people but now the government wants to close them. He is saying that the government should let immigrant have a path to citizenship so America can have the same reputation as in the past. America has always been a country of immigrants and what he is trying to say is that the immigration system must be fixed so we maintain the country this ways as it was for our ancestors. Now some might argue that this was the past but now we are in the future.
“At the states and local level alone, Undocumented immigrants nationwide collectively pay an estimated $11.64 Billion each year in taxes, according to a recent report by the institute on taxation and economic policy. …. Many undocumented immigrants also pay state income taxes.” The Immigrants are coming to live in America for a better life, but they aren’t just coming here to live for free they are paying taxes. so why can’t they stay in America to live there dream to do something in life? Immigrants from all over have helped the states and other countries become much better, for their own good and their future.
Immigrants have been dreaming about the promise of America for hundreds of years, but only the people who are brave enough have continued on coming to become a true American. Many different ethnicities have traveled into America to live their American dream, which is to have a job, house, a family of their own, and to have Freedom. Many people could either travel by train or boat. The poem “The New Colossus 1883” by Emma Lazarus tells a main idea of the Statue of Liberty represents freedom for many immigrants.
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.
As Senator Charles E. Schumer in upfront magazine has made clear, “What do we do will the 11 million undocumented people who live in the shadows, fearing deportation each day, most of them working to earn their sons and daughters a chance of the American dream.” Charles E. schumer s point is that because of deporting undocumented immigrants are hiding because they're afraid that they could be sent back where they came from without letting their child have a moment to see how America is and what theirs there to see and experiences. Of course, it is possible to disagree with the view that deportation keeps undocumented immigrants living in fear and instead argue that if immigrants are deported America would be letting too many immigrants in and then we'll lose a lot of our belongings then all immigrants are going to want to work and also take our jobs away from us. However the weight of the evidence is on the other side. What must be remembered is that immigrants are going to have a chance to be free and live a different type of life better, cleaner and more beautifully which is also a great opportunity for their children because they also get a chance to experience hard work and good knowledge they get from school.
My central topic is Raid Alerts Wanted to Warn Undocumented Immigrants With an APP. Because this is such an important topic at the moment, Celso Mireles a 27 year old developer who spend over 25 years undocumented in the United States decided to create an Application to provide crowd sourced and verified warnings about immigration raids so undocumented individuals can be alerted and avoid them. Celso Mireles started the app during the Obama administration because he deporting more people than any president in history, but the recent raids motivated its developer to pick it up again especially since Homeland Security immigration raids totaling more than 680 arrests lately. The narrator has many questions, but the most important one is; how can he help millions of people that are afraid for their life to not get kicked out from America. Because Celos Mireles had to live his life in fear of the immigration, he has an extra motivation for beginning this project, which can lead to helping many people around the world that are still living in fear day by day.
Immigration laws have also been very controversial about their morality and their actions can outrageously impact families lives forever. The future of immigration laws is unknown, but prohibiting immigration is not the answer the United States needs. Immigrants have been moving into the US for hundreds of
There are a lot of controversial issues surrounding this country. Whitin all those controversial issues there 's the “issue” of illegal immigration. I 'm sure we 're all familiar with the term “illegal immigration”. We’re always told about how bad it is. Don 't get me wrong, it is bad but it 's not done with the intention of hurting someone else but to try and change their future.
He states that immigration form is really impossible, but brings up an idea that the best way to deal with the immigrants is with love and compassion. In conclusion, we can say immigration presents a far more positive image of the impact of immigration on American Society. They help in the development of the nation and make life in the USA better and fulfilling for both natives and new arrivals. America should be attacking the root of the problem rather than the immigrants.
Argument Speech: Mexican Border Security Policy “It was a cold December morning waking up finding my dad watching the news, I sat down and witness how far Mexico has fallen. Officials have uncovered weapons, drugs, and secret tunnels. I could listen to my dad cursing because this has brought the fall of a once beautiful used to be country and now it only looks like the place where criminals can roam around free. The reason we came to the U.S. was because of the mischiefs of many people finding a way to survive trying to make money on whatever they could find that was all you could think of over there. I thought to myself at that moment bless be the people in the Southern border that have risked their lives to protect the U.S. from the people that would like to destroy and ruin this beautiful country.”
The United States of America, being a country founded by immigrants, is known all over the world as the land of great opportunities. People from all walks of life travelled across the globe, taking a chance to find a better life for them and their family. Over the years, the population of immigrants has grown immensely, resulting in the currently controversial issue of illegal immigration. Illegal immigrants are the people who have overstayed the time granted on their US, visa or those who have broken the federal law by crossing the border illegally. Matt O’Brien stated in his article “The government thinks that 10.8 million illegal immigrants lived in the country in January 2009, down from a peak of nearly 12 million in 2007.”(Para, 2) While some argue that illegal immigrants burden the United States of America and its economy, others believe that they have become essential and are an important part of the US, economy.
Additional possible fallacies of the speech is, once people vote against immigration, the people who oppose this act believe this will solve all economic, and social problems. The possible immigration reform is suggesting, the illegal immigrants are saved from everything, and that it was in good faith to enter the country illegally. The speech will persuade people to rethink the advantages and the possible effects for voting against illegal immigration
