Throughout time diverse regions have considered other societies to be barbaric, causing them to have the desire of “civilizing” them. Likewise, During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the American nativist groups, possessed a similar perspective towards immigration. Nativist’s opposed immigration, as they believed that it would negatively impact the United States socially, morally, politically, and economically. Socially and morally, the nativists feared that foreigners were a threat to the American society, as they were culturally inferior, possessed many ailments, and committed crimes. Politically, the ethnocentric nativists believed that immigrants would corrupt the government and negatively influence American politics.
Immigrants’ impact on America is both negative and positive depending on the viewpoint of the original culture. Without immigration America wouldn’t be the same place it is today. It’s what brought in the people who had dreams of a better life who invented the most amazing and brilliant things we have to day. In the short story “Plymouth Plantation” it shows the viewpoint of the pilgrims who migrated
Some of the misconceptions Americans have about immigration are that the immigrants contribute to the negative changes of the country’s economical and political climate since the September 11, 2011, attack on the country, carried out by individuals who entered the country on student or tourist visas. Cultural differences and language barriers amongst different ethnic groups have frequently given rise to many the misconceptions. Another misconception is that the immigrants cannot assimilate themselves themselves to the norms of mainstream American social life. The immigrants do not serve the interest of America
People who arrive in the U.S. might not be able to speak English. The most significant problems that immigrants face are language barrier and assimilation. The first issue is immigrants is fitting in. From an interview, Ms. Tran stated “ When I had came to the U.S., people did not take the time to get to know who I was as a person, but instead they had judged me. They were malevolent.
I think that the children of illegal immigrants should be deported. It will not be fair for people who actually try to get into the country legally.A reason I have for this is that many people are getting into our country illegally and it is unfair. Millions of people are trying to get into the country legally and they’re just waiting to get in.Wouldn’t you feel bad for getting into the country illegally when other people are actually doing the right thing to get into the country. It’s like winning a trophy that you don’t deserve. you feel good for getting it but you also don’t feel as good as you did when you got it because you know that you didn’t work hard to get it.
Although people came to America for opportunities, there were consequences that occurred. Many people that migrated to America came from different cultural backgrounds that it caused ethnic tensions and many religious bias. In time, the people of America gained hostility towards immigration after people from Southern and Eastern Europe migrated to America. Eventually, the feelings of nativism came about because of the fear of communism and since America was experiencing the Great Depression, we were unable to afford the influx of immigration. Therefore, America found the need to pass a legislation called The National Origins Act which was passed in 1924 because of the hostile feelings towards immigrants.
Wasn’t America the country for a better future, for individual rights and freedom?Lately, the subject of immigration, specifically illegal immigration, has been repeatedly popping up in Presidential debates and news. The majority of immigrants come to the United States for a better life, to make a better future for their family, out of economic necessity that is lacking in their home country, for their rights and freedom, because of the violence and danger in their country and many other reasons. Once these people arrive though, they are received by being treated unfairly, brutally, and with no mercy. And one of the famous song released to criticize many aspects of America 's unfriendly culture is "Bob Dylan 's 115th Dream" by Bob Dylan.
Emigrants are those who exit their country. It is not common for people to leave their country of origin without necessity to do so. Individuals and or groups may migrate for reasons such as economic, social, environmental, and political. In the United States especially, there is a large stigma against those deemed “immigrant” and “emigrant.” Because these terms are often preceded by the word “illegal,” an environment has been created that views any sort of immigration in a negative light. In my own immigration policy proposal, one key step would be to educate the general public about the true definitions of these terms and the different reasons why individuals choose to do so.
In this world the diversity and separation of race/culture is so high.It’s hard to think that we all came from one place one point in time.People came up with the idea to divide cultures and this has immediately caused many of troubles.With this diversity people start to hate where they came from and some people become proud of where they come from.Although pride for one country can be good many people have taken it to the extreme and this tends to have a negative effect on the way we treat people from other nations.Nationalism is defined as a feeling that people have of being proud of their country and they think that there country is more better and important.The belief that one country is better than another is affecting the way people
The country has pulled the people around the world to come and create their dreams for better life. Sometimes, the immigrants come to the United States illegally and do not have the appropriate requirement. The immigrants was increasing in number especially from Mexico. It caused many Americans believe that immigration stealing their job, leading criminality, and also not paying taxes. First, the undocumented
