Not since the reconstruction period after the civil war had there been such a “significant statutory change in the relationship between the Federal and state governments” (ourdocuments.gov). Though the states power regarding their voting laws had been restricted by the federal government, recentness has given back said power to the states. As aforementioned, Section 5 is no longer enforceable. But why? Section 4(b) was deemed unconstitutional in 2013 because of its “coverage formula” (civilrights.org), which used outdated methods to determine a states pre-clearance in Section 5.
While there are a vast number of proponents, the same thing cannot be said for opponents. The first group of people to oppose AB 12 would be the assembly members that voted against the formation of this law back in 2010. Assembly members against the bill believed that there were not sufficient government funds to put towards it. The second group to oppose Assembly Bill 12 are taxpayers. They believe that programs like Adoption Assistance, Transitional Housing Programs, and Kinship Guardian Assistance have been of enough help for foster youth.
In his argument, “Forgive Student Loans? Worst Idea Ever” mentioned how the importance of college student loans should be paid off. Due to the amount of irresponsibility that may happen. Believing if students were not to pay student loans, they would waste an amount of money per year, an amount that will increase. Together, the two debates profound sufficient information, to catch their audience attention, but only one debate had the enough statistics to prove it’s point.
This model minority image of Asian-Americans has caused some problems with other minorities, but the problem is that experimental research has been done to look at the ramifications (Chao et al, 2013). This belief in a model minority will most likely continue for a few years but the new generation is much more vocal and will not put up with any
Michael Benotti Dr. Stoffer ENG 131 29 January 2018 College Tuition Unfair to Some People Like many people today, especially in America, they say that college is an opportunity that most would look forward to after graduating from a secondary education. However, the price of tuition in many schools is what concerns many individuals who seek the opportunity of pursuing their dreams and goals. When it comes to tuition, people would view the price tag and might have doubts about attending college or even question if college is the best option at all. Also, many colleges will offer financial aid, scholarships, and grants to their future students, especially the ones who come from a low-income family. For a student from a high-income family, the amount of aid will be significantly lower, and the overall cost will be higher.
One's country of origin or their native land cannot measure competency for success. Determination and persistence solely calculate one’s progress as well as prosperity; accurate determination of successfulness of a person prevail by their willpower to reach success altogether. In America, the government often times have had trouble believing in immigrants capabilities due to the fact that they are not indigenous to the United States. Immigration has been the topic of an ongoing, unsolved debate for multiple decades, and whether or not it is beneficial to both America’s economy and America’s society in its entirety. As we follow Alexander Hamilton's life and major accomplishments as an immigrant in the U.S. in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway soundtrack
history: from the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 to the Immigration Reform Act of 1986, and now with the 1990 Immigration Act. Now, with the election of President Obama, who ran on a platform of immigration reform, there have been further changes in policy in order to create a new system more forgiving of undocumented immigrants. Specifically, President Obama has proposed two pieces of legislation: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (The Dream Act).The Dream Act has yet to be implemented in the policy process, as it is still a hotly contested item by policy makers in Congress, but DACA has acted as a temporary stand in for the full measure. An analysis of DACA’s effect on the immigration and naturalization process is important to gain a better understanding of what the full effect the DREAM act will have on the current institution. After it was apparent that the full DREAM act would be held in congressional limbo for the foreseeable future, President Obama issued an executive order putting DACA into effect, which instilled a two-year buffer period for young illegal immigrants (coined as DREAMERS) to apply for work visas, and begin the process of becoming a legal U.S.
On January 22 of 1973, the Supreme Court ruled abortion as a fundamental right. Forty-five years later, many people still take a stance as Pro-Life and don’t believe that abortion is a right. Though the reason for why people have different standpoints on this topic could seemingly be endless, the main roots of this argument are based on differences in morality, legality, and religious viewpoints. Despite the mass protests that have occurred, nothing has changed regarding the laws on abortion. The most recent shock to the people regarding the topic of abortion was when President Trump was pictured with six other men signing a ban on federal funding for international groups that provide information on abortions.
“42% of college students in the United States fail to complete their degrees. Of those 42%, 15-25% will drop-out, and the remaining 17-27% will leave college, for reasons that are less clear.” There is obviously something wrong with our education system as a whole for so many students to drop out of college. Yet, individuals believe that college tuition should be free, and paid for by the government with taxpayer money. Secondary school should not be free because it should not replace the education that should be taught in high school, it will make individuals pay more taxes in order to pay for college tuition and it will motivate student to do good in school. Initially , secondary education should not be free because students will lose
Contrary to what some might think, in the United States many novels have been banned or challenged. One book that has been controversial since its publication in 1884 is The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn written by Mark Twain. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn contains a very frequent use of the n-word, which is the center of its controversy. Many people don’t believe that it should be taught in our country’s high schools, while others insist that the novel is a major piece of American literature. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should still be taught, but instead of at high schools, moved to college curriculum.
Why Collegiate Athletes Should Not Be Paid Annually the NCAA as a whole brings in approximately six billion dollars, yet the people generating the income are not making a dime? In the United States collegiate sporting events are a massive industry but the players do not receive an income because they are technically amateurs. Is it time to start paying college athletes? Or should players continue to be rewarded in free education? Many believe it is absurd to still consider the NCAA amateur sports after all it has become but just as many think the exact opposite and that college athletes already receive fair compensation for their participation.
I have not thought about how many children are here now, smuggled into the United States at young ages, who struggle with the insecurities of belonging somewhere. The fear associated with being deported or their undocumented family members being deported is real and heart wrenching. In my ignorance, I did not know about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that President Obama launched during his administration. This program brought much security and relief to many young people to openly get jobs and a driver’s license for eligible undocumented immigrants under 31 years old. However, as one of the recipients of this grant pointed out, DACA comes with an expiration date, with no guarantees of renewal, nor a pathway to citizenship.
President Leath has suggested alternative options to VEISHEA for Iowa State students but only time will tell what holds and what will not. As one Iowa State student, Matt Banwart put it “President Leath cared more about the numbers than he did people, culture, and tradition. Cutting VEISHEA also decreased opportunities for students to get involved with planning committees for a large scale event and while some students coming in will never get to experience it, they will feel the backlash of it in a big way. While Leath was good at doing things like increasing tuition numbers the student experience for what it means to be a student at ISU has been taken away with the removal of VEISHEA.” Planes, one of President Leath’s hobbies during his tenure at Iowa State has been flying himself home on University owned planes for ‘fundraising opportunities’ that Leath stated as hunting trips with members of the NRA and government
These people think the immigrants may drop out of college, then the sponsors will lose the money they provided. Sponsoring Hope will provide a contract, including if the immigrant does not finish their schooling, then they will still be entitled to the money they owe and could be deported. “The best estimate is that in 2003–04, about a quarter of the nation 's 6.5 million degree-seeking community college students came from an immigrant background (Teranishi, Saurez-Orozco, Saurez-Orozco).” This research shows many immigrants are capable of learning challenging college information, but they are not always given the chance to try. Sponsoring Hope will be their chance. Moreover, these individuals have chosen to do whatever they can to come to America and receive an education, for them dropping out of college is not an option.
