All humans, each and every person, have their own unique opinion. As immigrants migrate to America, they face many challenges: financial, social, and political. In Funny in Farsi, author Firoozeh Dumas tells a memoir about her coming to America from Iran, and enduring many trials while trying to acquire acceptance of the fellow Americans around her. Someone is no longer considered an immigrant when they are legally documented and contribute to the society.

Although they have has i has time taking care of their family in their out nation because of the lack of jobs and the amount of education given to the is so basic.

The 2000’s has seen a decrease in racism and more fighting against racism, than in the 1800s or the 1900s. In James Baldwin’s “The Fire Next Time”, Baldwin writes, “We can make America what America must become” (10) to his nephew, the future generation. Baldwin means that America must become more accepting, “For this is your home, my friend, do not be driven from it” (10).
According to Labor Department statistics, “People of color are nearly twice as likely to be out of work as Caucasian Americans, even when they have the same degree” (Rassuli 1). Despite the number of immigrants coming to America in search of freedom and new opportunities, citizens see them as “outsiders” and “unwelcomed” (2). These immigrants come to America for a better life, chasing the “American Dream,” only to be “struck down” by American society (2). Imbolo Mbue explores these challenges that immigrants face and expands on the obstacles they have to overcome in her book Behold the Dreamers. Mbue’s characterization that highlights the contrast between Jende and Neni creates a sense of irony that reflects her theme of how the American Dream is not possible due to the obstacles that separate immigrants from American culture.

The characters Tilo, Ahuja’s wife, Geeta and Hamida, etc are a few examples. Gender plays a crucial role in the way in which immigrants experience diaspora, “…at each step of the migration process, women and men encounter different experiences” (Espín, 241). The characters in the novel are very clearly torn apart, often into multiple pieces both physically and emotionally. It shows how complex is the problem of identity crisis that Indians try to cope with in a foreign land. Throughout the novel Tilo is joined by a host of other people that share many aspects of life as immigrants, but each also has their own individual story both physically and
According to politician Leonard Boswell, “The American Dream is one of success, home ownership, college education for one 's children, and hav[ing] a secure job to provide these and other goals.” There are a multitude of people around the world who accept this umbrella definition of money and security being interchangeable with success. And yet, for one of the first times in American history, most parents do not believe that their children are going to be more prosperous than they were (Martin). The American Dream is a concept that can never be easily defined, measured, or calculated. Instead, it morphs to societies changes throughout the generations.

At the end he told me, “Luis becoming an anchor baby is probably one of the most luckiest ways to not suffer. You don’t have to go threw paper work, or having to wait years for the government to accept your documents. ” At the same time that he was talking I ask myself, “Men what are some of the things that a immigrant has to go
After WWI, there were large numbers of people seeking entry into the United States. During WWI the Russian Revolution occurred, and communism became an important part of politics.
