My central topic is Raid Alerts Wanted to Warn Undocumented Immigrants With an APP. Because this is such an important topic at the moment, Celso Mireles a 27 year old developer who spend over 25 years undocumented in the United States decided to create an Application to provide crowd sourced and verified warnings about immigration raids so undocumented individuals can be alerted and avoid them. Celso Mireles started the app during the Obama administration because he deporting more people than any president in history, but the recent raids motivated its developer to pick it up again especially since Homeland Security immigration raids totaling more than 680 arrests lately.
“There are a lot of Americans who believe that immigration is hurting our country” (Vargas 2011). They believe that they are stealing our jobs. Some Americans agree that a wall should be built to keep these immigrants out. As well as building a wall, there are some in favor of kicking out Americans who are already here based on race and religion. For example, Republican candidate Donald Trump has spoken out against Latinos, Blacks, Arabs and Muslims. He has an immense number of supporters who agree with what he says. This speaks a lot about our country. Donald Trump has exposed the deep-rooted racism that America has spent years trying to rebuild.
Do you live in California,Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, or Illinois? Well if you do these states contain 60% of the Illegal Immigrants In America. Illegal immigrants have become a problem in America. In 2007 there were 6.9 million illegal immigrants, but has recently declined since then.We do remove people from this country when they trespass and put them back in their home country.There is no doubt that we make illegal immigration fair and nicer by putting them back in their country and not holding them in jail or charging the thousands of dollars. We do give them a chance to come in legally it’s not like we completely block them out and don’t give them anymore options so they have to come in illegally.
Not every immigrant get into the country using the legal means. There are those who get into the country on student visas and start working contrary to the visas they hold. There are others who get into the country illegally with no genuine United States visa. The immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 focusses on the matter of illegal immigration through placing major fines on the employers of those immigrants who hire them. The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 allowed a number of barriers to immigration. The host family is only able accept an immigrant if it is accorded an income of about 125% of the poverty status. This Act additionally calls for the Immigration and Naturalization Service to ensure
In times such as now, immigration policy is a topic of controversial and emotional discussion. The key in having educational, progressive, and prosperous conversations is understanding the theoretical foundations behind the argument that a person stands for or believes in. Having factual evidence to support ideas on concepts such as: the opportunities that immigrants bring to a country, what the international rules actually are that govern the entry and exit of people from one country to another, and the causes, trends, and consequences of international immigration. Finding reason and support for these claims can take the discussion behind immigration policy from one of heated and emotional argument to one of educational and beneficial conversation.
There is an estimate of 8.7 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, according to the Center for immigration studies. They come here because they want a better life for their family, but their presence has caused many problems for the citizens of this country. Moreover, immigration has always been an important issue in the story of the United States. Many undocumented immigrants are able to enter the country illegally. These people along with other citizens say that undocumented immigrants are good for the country as they help the economy by working for a minimum wage in jobs that many refuse to do. According to the Pew Hispanic Center, undocumented take into account 5% of all workers in the United States. In fact, illegal immigrants help lower prices for people to buy more goods which make them suppose that they are an advantage for the country. Undoubtedly, companies that have undocumented workers can increase
“The Immigrant contribution” and “The Quilt of a Country” are two essays that share a similar focus, however, they cover two drastically different sides of the topic. Both of them share the main idea that America is a country made up almost entirely of immigrants. Kennedy’s essay, “The immigrant Contribution”, focuses on how immigrants have affected our country, whereas Quindlen’s essay discusses how people of many different cultures coexist and work together.The essays both concentrate on immigration in America and how immigration has shaped and molded our culture. The two authors describe the many different aspects of immigration in immensely different ways.
An illegal immigrant, who works for their keep, pays taxes, doesn't get into trouble, and just wants a better life in a country, should be granted citizenship. An illegal immigrant is a person who migrates to a different country in a way that is in violation of the immigrant laws. Immigration has been a tough topic to bring up for many years in America. Illegal immigrants are seen as a bad thing for America, but some see them as an economic savior. There are over 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Many Americans have mixed views about citizenship for these people. Illegal immigrants should be granted citizenship based on how the person is doing. If they are causing trouble they don't need to be here. 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.
Immigration has always been a crucial topic in the United States government. Especially when it comes to giving amnesty and passing an immigration reform to 11 million immigrants, that live in the country. Many citizens believe that immigrants are detrimental to the well-being of the United States and do not agree with the passage of an immigration reform. One reason is that many believe immigrants take away the jobs of American citizens. Other reasons are that immigrants bring crime to the country and affect the economy.
Do you think that illegal immigrants should have a path to citizenship? I think that they should. They don 't harm the U.S they actually improve it. Nearly 14 million immigrants entered the United States from 2000 to 2010, and over one million persons were naturalized as U.S. citizens in 2008. There were 11.5 million unauthorized immigrants in the United States as of 2011. They come and have american families, they improve the economy, and this country is a country of immigrants so why not let them stay here.
The United States of America, being a country founded by immigrants, is known all over the world as the land of great opportunities. People from all walks of life travelled across the globe, taking a chance to find a better life for them and their family. Over the years, the population of immigrants has grown immensely, resulting in the currently controversial issue of illegal immigration. Illegal immigrants are the people who have overstayed the time granted on their US, visa or those who have broken the federal law by crossing the border illegally. Matt O’Brien stated in his article “The government thinks that 10.8 million illegal immigrants lived in the country in January 2009, down from a peak of nearly 12 million in 2007.”(Para, 2) While some argue that illegal immigrants burden the United States of America and its economy, others believe that they have become essential and are an important part of the US, economy.
Undocumented immigrants live with fear of deportation every day of their lives. Those with control of state institutions who do not consider undocumented immigrants as worthy American residents in our society, take advantage of their power by instilling fear of deportation. The restrictive federal and state laws towards migration in the U.S. has become a way to keep undocumented immigrants and their families living in the shadows. Arrocha (2013) claims that the paradox of the U.S. migration seems be that our free democratic republicanism is viewed as the land of freedom, equality, and justice. Yet, these undocumented immigrants aren’t treated equally or given the freedom to live in our society without intimidation. In states like Arizona, the program SB 1070 allowed state officials to profile individuals who presumed to be residing in the state without legal documents. Needless to say, this was a tool used to regulate migration and also a way to differentiate legal residents from illegal residents, which resulted as an inhumane and degrading way to treat these individuals. For that reason, it has become unreachable for immigrants to assimilate into our American society because they are characterized as either aliens, criminals, or
Immigration is defines as the action of leaving one's home country to start a new life in another country. Immigration has been a recent topic for politicians and the new president elect of the Donald trump. Undocumented immigrants serve as a problem to our nation's economy and well being both socially and economically.
is because immigrant workers are willing to do most of the jobs Americans do not want to do. Most of these jobs are manual labor like building houses, construction or other things that fall under that category. I think that people who have made it here and done the whole process legally deserve to be here but the ones who are here illegally need to go back to where they came from. It makes it possible for people to be able to improve their living conditions because if they have their own company or business they can hire immigrants and they will work for much cheaper than the normal American. This also hurts a lot of Americans because they get fired when immigrants are willing to work for wages way lower than what these people are normally used to. Another argument is that immigrants are a huge part in Americans economic growth. Some people argue that them increasing our population is a good thing. Also, payed taxes increase social security and the expands the federal budget. They cause for the economy to boost and their culture expands along with ours and people get to experience different cultures. If you go to a hospital, there are a good bit of the doctors and nurses that are of a different ethnic group or immigrants as we call them. One reason is because most of the foreign people are pretty intelligent.
“Illegal immigration continues to be a major problem in the United States. We have people wanting to come here legally and we should not be rewarding people who have come here illegally,” said John Barrasso. The United States Government should not allow immigrants into America because they are having negative effects on our country. Some negative effects are citizens competing with illegals for jobs, immigrants expecting favors, and Americans not getting to work hard for their money.
