This idea also applies to people who enter a society without legal permission but still actively participate and work to help the society as a whole. My father’s beliefs apply specifically to the United States of America as well. He believes our country was built on the idea that anyone can come here to make a better life for themselves and we have an obligation to uphold this ability. In conclusion, my father believes it is morally wrong to deport people who are actively participating in society in a positive way, regardless if they are apart of the society legally or not. While I was speaking with my father about his ideas on immigration and deportation, he seemed very focused on addressing how much our society benefits from immigrants, both documented and undocumented.
Immigrants are only there to make a living they mean no harm to the country and find it easier to be there illegally because they are in desperate need of the money and can’t afford to waste time on legal paperwork. They had no other choice to live a normal life and they took a huge risk doing so. America claims to be a free country but recently more and more restrictions have been added about who is allowed in the country which contradicts the phrase that they have been living by for so many years. When it comes to being a “free country” they should be free when it comes to everything and not only when it came to immigrants were they banning certain countries. Moreover, immigrants are actually benefiting the country more than harming it.
It isn’t fair to give citizenship as a reward for people who broke the immigration laws. While immigrants continue to take away jobs, they are a contributing factor to paying taxes and helping out society. The sooner we allow them to stay in America, the greater the benefits would be. Allowing them legal status would improve our country. Everybody must be treated with respect and dignity, no matter the race.
For example, the argument of how immigrant reduce job and wages opportunities to US citizens falls under the fallacies of pathos (Argument to the People), because this argument is based in the pride of a country and how all the citizens should support and be solidary to their country and their own people. A second example can be the argument that immigrant do the work that citizens don’t want to do and this falls under the fallacies of ethos (poisoning the well) because with this argument they tried to discredit or make less the US citizens to prove their idea or
If they are working trying to get a check to provide for their family then why not keep them here. It could also help decrease the amount of debt America is in because of the increased tax returns. Immigrants are a good thing for America and should be granted citizenship unless they are causing trouble.Some housekeeping jobs and yard work is done by immigrants, both documented and undocumented. Immigrants are useful in the Labor Market. Between 7-8 million of the illegal immigrants
Refugees don’t choose to lead this life but instead are forced to. And as stated above, there is a silver lining to accepting refugees. The least anybody can do is to show them love and kindness and help them build better lives for themselves in contrast to turning a blind eye and pretending that everything will eventually go back to normal. As it appears to be, the situation does not seem likely to decrease in the foreseeable future, and this short-term thinking of various impacts it may have on the country may lead to bigger and longer-term problems for the local economy. Keeping refugees outside the borders of the country appears to be more expensive in the long run than taking them in and thus intensifies the tab for taxpayers.
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.
Getting a job is also something that could be affected by my status. Many employers do not consider employing undocumented students, regardless of their education. Thankfully, the DACA program instituted by Obama has helped me overcome many of these issues.” I found that this was the case for most undocumented immigrants. Their ascribed identity played a role in their role lives. Their achieved identity is not compatible with their ascribed identity, and this can have grave consequences in their lives.
Does America still provide access to the American Dream to the “tired, the poor and the huddled masses?” The American Dream is an idea where freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, where every person; citizen or not, regardless of gender, should be able to achieve through hard work. America no longer provides access to the access to the American Dream to all but they should because immigrants come to America in search of a new life and not only do they help themselves but they help the country as well. Immigrants come to America to escape the horror of the many challenges that their countries face day after day. In this story “True Immigrant Stories: Tanya at Ellis Island”, which tells us, “Cossacks invaded their settlement… murdered anyone they could find… Tanya and her family were instructed to climb down the ladder outside their house leaning against the window… the family ran to a house where an
Schuylon Johnson Coach D. English IV Immigration in America The number of legal, and illegal immigrants have risen over the years, which has stirred more debate about immigration. Some think it’ll help the economy, and the others think that it’s affecting the economy, but in reality, immigration has been beneficial to a degree, but there are negative effects as well. A topic that is always discussed in America is with the increasing number of immigrants will there be an increase of terrorist attacks? Multiple people say yes, because of the previous terrorist attacks by Muslim. People in America have the idea that Muslims, are more likely to make terrorist attacks on American soil because of 9/11, the Boston Marathon Attack, and Los Angeles
One might think that the farming industry and the technology industry are completely different, but surrounding the subject of immigrant workers both industries share common ideas. Large companies want to know the way that they can make the most money, while also releasing a quality product. The business owners on both sides feel as though American workers are not as qualified or as hardworking as immigrant workers. Yet what these corporations are not telling you is that even legal immigrant workers are not paid as well as what an American would be. It might seem easy to blame these foreign workers, because they are not standing up and asking for better wages or working conditions.
