Numerous stories are heart retching and devastating. Trying to imagine being in the shoes of those immigrants is almost impossible, as I have been blessed with a wonderful problem-free life.

Coming from a low income family, living in a small town in India, I learned early on about struggling and surviving those struggles. I watched my parents working day and night to provide for electricity, pay for our monthly school fees so my sister and I can have a better education, and for the future they wished upon for their children. To further enhance this vision, my father decided for the family and I to immigrate to the US.

Argumentative Writing Undocumented immigrants are getting deported and they can’t have an experience they wanted to have when they came to america. But, because of the us government they can’t have this experience some get this experience but they still have to be very careful.

The two authors describe the many different aspects of immigration in immensely different ways.

Also, I cannot see myself reply plainly to the questions and wrote you a somewhat detailed description of myself. Leaving Viet Nam near the end of 2009, I missed some school and fell behind the competitive Viet Nam education since the system in the U.S. is two degrees lower.
