But what does the reform mean, and how will it benefit both the American population and the undocumented immigrants? There are always two sides of a coin, and I will dig into that in my speech. The US Immigration Reform 2014 Barack Obama recently presented the Immigration Accountability Executive Action to the American population that will result in looser regulations regarding illegal immigration. Illegal immigrants that have been in the United States for at least 5 years and undocumented parents of children that are US citizens or legal permit residents, and the Dreamers that examined in 2012 will be able to stay in the US legally . The new reform will, furthermore, also grant work permit for those who are eligible, allowing them to work in the country , as it will result in more competitive labour market in the United States.
Undocumented immigrants in the United States has become one of the biggest problems in America, yet many believe building a border wall will help us overcome this challenge. However, a result this choice may have in the future is that it will create less diverse districts in America since we are pushing away a big compliment that makes America a great and tolerance nation. Constructing a border wall will not stop unauthorized migration nor drug trafficking surround the border. Many conservative people suppose that building a wall across the United States and Mexico will solve undocumented immigration in the United States. However, the truth is, that by building this wall we will only make America isolated from the Dreamers; people who come to this country for a more desirable life and education.
My Responsibility to America “Radical changes in the world of politics leave America with a heightened responsibility to be, for the world, an example of a genuinely free, democratic, just and humane society.”- Pope John Paul II. To more appreciate the freedom that you have in this amazing country, just think of all the men and women who have willingly gone into combat to fight for you and your country. People that I do not even know are out on the front lines fighting for my freedom. With all freedom comes accountability. It is easy for myself and everyone else to take for granted the fact that America is a free country, but as best as I possibly can, I will uphold the culpability given to me, to help the country in any way possible.
Logos is an appeal to logic and uses reasoning in an attempt to persuade. In the speech Obama’s Closing Statement, current commander-in-chief Barack Obama argues that he’s fit to be president again based on his accomplishments in his first half. In the speech he tells the American people, “Over the last four years, we’ve made real progress digging our way out of policies that
They believed, that voting against the bill and the inaction of the House “is really a vote against women, children, and families.” In an ideal world a good policy is born out of an informed debate, argument and search of consensus. Nevertheless, in issue networks’ ability to constantly weigh alternative courses of action Hugh Heclo sees a threat to democratic legitimacy. He believes that a more informed argument about policy choices may produce more incomprehensibility. Trying to create a wide-ranging piece of legislation and gain as much support for the immigration bill as possible, hundreds of
Bernie Sanders’ progressivist activism most directly affects my life. Although he is not a Senator or Representative for my state, I admire his character and commitment towards achieving national equality. With ideologies far more advanced than those of his presidential running mates, Sanders is the ideal politician for my generation; I chose Bernie Sanders because I truly believe that almost all of his political beliefs are logically and humanitarianly superior to those of other 2016 presidential candidates and on-par with those of many modern countries. Bernie Sanders is a candidate who, if elected president, would catapult America into an unprecedented period of domestic development and prosperity. However, if Sanders is not elected president,
Of all the principles that define the American system, the ideals of a democratic republican system are among the most cherished. The idea that average Americans have a choice in their leadership, that the people elevate the best among them, remains central to American political thought to this day. Just as important as the elevation, Americans firmly hold that power given to elected officials must be temporary. The power entrusted to the representatives must be graciously returned following electoral defeat, when the politician’s service is done. Idealistic Americans cherish this concept, and government teachers across the country impress on the nation’s students that this is how the process works.
By making naturalization an easier process with less red tape obstructing its pathway, several moral issues and unconstitutional policies can be avoided. Currently, President Obama is very progressive in his immigration policies and has passed some legislation successfully, such as his criminal-only deportation policies which have effectively reduced deportation rates. If not for resistance met in Congress by those who have taken a misinformed stance against immigration, many more laws could have been passed. Jeff Guo of the Washington Post recently released an article appropriately titled, “The Biggest Ideas Underpinning the Anti-Immigration Movement Aren’t Backed Up by Data,” and as his article suggests, much of the stigma that comes with the word “immigration” is at best urban legend, and at worst, vestiges of racist ideas. As the frustration towards immigration mounts, so do the severe, bordering-unconstitutional
Seeing that there are 11.2 million illegal immigrants in the United States, it isn 't unreasonable for some people to want increased national security in the country. However, what isn 't right is for people of a country to stereotype other racial, ethnic, or religious groups and disallow them from migrating to that place. Regarding this, any government should be willing to welcome the foreigner in their own search for a sense of security and safety from environments corrupted by violence, despotism, or poverty; this is the government 's first and foremost duty ("Catholic Church 's Position on Immigration Reform"). The Catholic Catechism further expands on this idea, saying, "The more prosperous nations are obliged, to the extent they are able, to welcome the
Some people will say that equality isn’t achievable because they will have their own opinions that discriminate others. However, America has already come such a long way from where it started. We can still continue to make America better. Even though there are still reasons to worry about why equality cannot be achievable, our very past and the Constitution can help prove that wrong. America has changed and fixed many problems over the years involving discrimination and segregation.
Bipartisanship is crucial to passing effective legislation. When both party disagree with each other gridlock occurs. This gridlock forces both sides to stonewall the other to get a bill passed that is lopped sided favoring one party over the other. Bipartisanship allows all voices to be heard which creates a bill that congress can pass that represents the greater good of the country rather than one party’s constituency. With bipartisanship congress works smoother and is favored by the country with positive rating.
