Firstly, when Will said ‘To end the practice of “birthright citizenship,” all that is required is to correct the misinterpretation of that amendment first sentence’ (601). How could anybody say it was a misinterpretation on something that someone else wrote? We as a nation should look at immigrants not as a threat, but for an opportunity for a friendship. Some people might not have been able to go anywhere, so they came to America to feel relived from the stress that was put a pond them. Thus, many might not like people coming over to the “land of the free”, but what
Some people may say that the ban stops terrorists from coming here, but the terror attacks in the U.S. decreased 39% since 9/11 even without the travel ban. Trump’s travel ban was shot down as unconstitutional but he has edited the travel ban and plans to add many more enemies of the U.S. to the travel ban list. Trump’s plans also include bringing torture back to the
Rush Limbaugh discusses multiculturalism and its possible failings to America culture. Limbaugh believes teaching minorities about their roots hinder their “future as Americans.” He continues to say “If you want to prosper in America, if you want access to opportunity in America, you must be able to assimilate: to become part of the American culture.” This statement, personally, implies other cultures cannot have the same work ethic and values as “regular” Americans, which is a presumptuous statement to make. To a certain point, yes, incoming immigrants and generational immigrants do have to adapt to the American culture, but their roots do not discount their ability to succeed in American society. Limbaugh continues to state that multiculturalism
As a full amendment in our constitution, it should not be changed simply because it’s causing our country inconvenience in some people’s opinion. It will also cause more struggle and poverty for immigrants, legal or illegal, in America, which is something American’s have been working very hard to prevent in recent years. (Ronald Rotunda "Birthright Citizenship Benefits the
Was Johnson really exercising his right to free speech while burning the American flag? Some would argue he did, but others will say he didn’t. In most cases, majority would say he wasn’t practicing free speech which lead him to dishonor the U.S. flag. Flag burning will endanger the symbol of the role as representation of nationhood and national unity. We would be permitting a Sate to “prescribe what shall be orthodox” by saying that one may burn the flag to convey one’s attitude toward it and its referents only if one does not endanger the flag’s representation.
This act is preventing us from living to our full potential. Those Brits have the willingness to come to us, the American Colonists and say that we have to pay extra taxes for something that they do as well, this act is just hypocritical. Everyone deserves the same rights and it’s not fair to discriminate by who you are. The Proclamation of 1763 shows us that we don’t have equal rights as of now considering that American settlers cannot expand west of the Appalachian Mountains. Do you want a government that forces you to do stuff without getting to have a say, or a government that will listen to you and you will get a voice in it.
As Donald Trump said when addressing the Colin Kaepernick situation, “You should find a country that works better for him, let him try.” So if you do not like how America is treating you, just move to another country. If America is the country that does not give the respect you want then just move and try another country to see if they agree with your opinions. So quit your National sports team and move, no one in America will care and will support your decision because you are standing up for your beliefs without disrespecting America. Or speak out, make fundraisers to raise awareness about the situation so that will make everyone in America join and support you and help out the country then cause a whole troubled situation that will spread worldwide and cause a lot more controversies than it really should be. Now those people with color that are kneeling during the National Anthem will not get much better treatment because of how you are disrespecting our country.
We have to stop this hatred in our country because this country is based on freedom, peace, and home of immigrants. When we start naming and group each other , we might take as a joke, but we are racially discriminating one another race. A person offending or joking of an race does not try to know the person as a human being. They go off what they have heard or seen on television that 's why I believe the media has two sides. In this year 's election one of the
If the voting system wasn't anonymous i'm sure the election would have been different. This is the opposite of what was needed for the fight for equality. We now have a leader that is against the fight for equality, and the worst part about it is that he doesn't think he is a racist. This is related to the American Law assignment that I had to do, no one thinks they are prejudice they just
But, there is a legal and an illegal way to do things. I am all for people moving to our country to seek out the American Dream, as long as they do so legally. When immigrants go through our channels and come into our country legally they too can become Americans as long as they are productive members of society and law abiding citizens. But when they come in illegally and begin working undocumented, then that is unfair for those who are working and have to pay taxes. We are the ones stuck paying for their healthcare and housing and insurance.
