He talks about the life of Angel Espinoza, a Mexican illegal immigrant and brings up his own own grandfather who was an Irish immigrant. Tierney argues that Hispanic immigrants are simply trying to achieve the American dream for themselves and their descendants, just as the Irish did. In the 7th paragraph it says, “It’s been argued that Mexicans are different from past immigrants because they’re closer to home and less likely to assimilate. Compared with other immigrants today, they’re less educated, and their children are more likely to get poor grades and dropout of school. Therefore, the arguments goes, Mexicans are in danger of becoming an underclass living in linguistically isolated ghettos.” The argument could go neutral. Congress should let the illegal immigrants get on a path to citizenship so they can help build the country. Not only that but there’s a lot Mexicans working hard to keep their life together. They try to change their ways differently from when they were in their

Response to “Our Fear of Immigrants” In “Our Fear of Immigrants” Jeremy Adam Smith takes a neutral stance on the immigration and anti-immigration argument. Smith begins by telling the story of a 4th grade class at Jefferson Elementary School in Berkeley, California who try to fight back against immigration laws after a classmate of theirs was deported back to his home country. Smith then goes on to compare the 4th graders to the adults of their town who fight for stronger immigration laws asking his readers what qualities the children possess that the rest of the citizens do not to make them react so differently.
“Expelling Immigrant Workers May Also Send Away the Work They Do” In the article “ Expelling Immigrant Workers May Also Send away the Work They Do” by Eduardo Porter, is mostly about how immigrants that migrated to America usually work as an agriculture, but if they get send back all their work will be gone since their work is really outstanding and it’s quality work. If all immigrants were send back, their work would disappear and the work of Americans wouldn’t be as good as an immigrant. A series of studies over the years found how, “ Expelling immigrants does not open opportunities for workers born in the United States, either. Rather, the shock leaves them worse off than when the immigrants were here” (Porter “Expelling Immigrant Workers”).
One of the reasons there is so much immigrant population in this country is because of the economy. In the past, immigration was helpful to the economy when people encouraged it so that the it could become prosperous and bring in diversity and help needed. Today, many people are afraid of losing their jobs. Immigration is currently flooding the labor market, primarily in the low-skill, low-wage sectors, and driving down wages and working conditions for many Americans because our immigration policies do not take economic conditions into account. Illegal immigration probably has its greatest impact on the United States’
In his last job as a toothpaste capper he was replaced by another immigrant willing to work longer. Now David, an American worker, doesn’t have a job anymore. This is happening to many U.S citizens. I strongly disagree with the statement “because America is historically a nation of immigrants,
Immigration is deeply rooted in the American culture, yet it is still an issue that has the country divided. Marcelo and Carola Suarez-Orozco, in their essay, “How Immigrants Became ‘Other’” explore the topic of immigration. They argue that Americans view many immigrants as criminals entering America with the hopes of stealing jobs and taking over, but that this viewpoint is not true. They claim that immigrants give up a lot to even have a chance to come into America and will take whatever they can get when they come. The Suarez-Orozco’s support their argument using authority figures to gain credibility as well as exemplification through immigrant stories.
The fear of loss of job opportunities because of a higher rate of new incoming immigrants has lead to people indulge in vile behaviors to protect one’s personal welfare, releasing hysteria among the people. Many citizens with the same heritage as many immigrants that come to this country refuse to even accept their own people, for they are afraid that these might take away their economic stability. This fear of losing your job is one very predominant in modern society, because people are worried of how their financial status will drop. People worry about being financially stable because money plays a very important role in enabling humans to fulfill their basic and selfish needs. It can be seen how many of these people who have already lost their jobs will do anything to obtain a new one.
One misconception a lot of people make is that immigrants take jobs and opportunities away from Americans. What they don't know is that it’s actually quite the opposite. You may think that immigrants are taking your jobs, but I have the evidence to prove you wrong.
Introduction Informative, contemplative, and different are three words to describe “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” by Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco and Carola Suárez-Orozco from Rereading America. “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” talks about unauthorized immigration. More specifically, this source talks about the other side of the issue of unauthorized immigrants; the human face of it all. “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” depicts the monster from one of Jeffrey Jerome Cohen’s thesis in the article, “Monster Culture (7 Theses).” The monster seen in the source “How Immigrants Become ‘Other’” is the one that Cohen talks about in his fourth thesis, “The Monster Dwells at the Gates of Difference.”
Samuel mentions the cause that immigrants bring when they come and how that affect our nation and its people. The article also, mentions the problem America will have with immigrants. The author claims that immigrants are harming our country and the it’s people. The purpose of Samuel’s article is to show American that immigrants can hurt America or Americans.
America is at an impasse with itself over the current unemployment rate and questions about where all the jobs are going. According to Elizabeth Dwoskin, most of these job positions, considered dirty, are being filled by immigrants and not Americans. Americans have found themselves in an uproar about migrant workers taking jobs away from them, but it seems they are hypocritical as they refuse to fill these jobs themselves. In her article “Why Americans Won 't Do Dirty Jobs,” Dwoskin implies that Americans are too lazy to do hard work but complain when immigrants fill these positions. It seems that even when Americans are faced with the threat of homelessness they claim they cannot find any jobs, or rather, they refuse to do the dirty ones.
In Economic and Social Impact of Immigrants Stephen Moore is arguing that immigrants and refugees contribute positively to the American Economy. He conveys this through the use of surveys, data, and facts from multiple sources. In the second paragraph he took a 1986 survey that concluded that a lot of foreigners achieved success in this country in difficult positions such as engineering and entrepreneurship. Two separate studies’ discussed in the sixth and seventh paragraphs dispel common beliefs that immigrants take jobs away from natural born citizens. The studies concluded that the exact opposite of popular opinion, immigrants in fact benefitted the economy for employers, employees, and the US economic position.
