Undocumented students are normally brought by parents or caregivers to America when they are very young. These children complete their schooling in the US and many young undocumented students are unaware of their status. It’s only when graduating high school that many find out that they do not automatically have the permission to pass into college. How Many Undocumented
Surprisingly, 5.3 million of these children are living with unauthorized parents. And these children usually get a high school or college degree, but can’t get a job because of the scare of being deported. “ More than half the undocumented immigrant population has a high school diploma or higher.” Wrote Center for American Progress. V. Counterargument/Rebuttal Even though I think this action is a great idea and plan for our country some people would say otherwise. These people are under the impression that not all immigrants who are allowed to stay, still won’t be able to
For decades, immigration has been a problem for the United States. Due to the people traveling from their native lands to the United States seeking a better life for themselves, and more primarily for the family that has come with them. Immigration is the action of settling into a country of which one is not native. Despite the many legal immigrants not every immigrant enters the country with legal documents and most of these illegal immigrants are poor and uneducated. Some undocumented immigrants commit crimes such as drug smuggling, or terrorism.
Under the Obama-administration, a new policy was created called DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a program that allows undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. at the age of 16 or under, who are called the DREAMERS, to be shielded from deportation. Since DACA was created, 800,000 DREAMERS have been saved from being deported. Even though many Democrats are trying to fight it, President Donald Trump has announced the ending to the DACA program. DREAMERS who came to the United States as young children and are going to contribute to society should get to stay here. At young ages, the DREAMERS didn’t have any say in the decision to come to the United States or not.
High School in Virginia as a representative of the evolving cultural identity of the United States. The focus of this essay is how immigrants have changed American. Joel L. Swerdlow, in “Changing American,” demonstrates why it takes 2 generations become successful: Language, Culture, and Economy. First of all, Language is one of the big problem that a second generation take when people come to another country (please) in "Changing American" by Joel L. Swedlowb tell us ' 'In 1990 some 32 million U.S. residents spoke a language other than English at home, and more than 7 million lived in households with no fluent English speaker over 14 years old. ' ' It is a problem for the second generation to be successful because their parent doesn 't help them in their home in the language.
In the world today about 264 plus million children are being denied access to free education, according to Global Campaign for Education-civil society movement. Up to 80 percent of the world's out of school 5 to 18 year olds live in the sixty-five countries that a similar, more modern organization, Global Partnership for Education, is associated with. These are the children that are going to be leading and populating their own countries eventually so if have no education, how can they make logical decisions for the benefit of their country and the world? Education is globally recognized as a human right according to a number of international conventions. In all highly developed countries most people would claim education should be free for children worldwide yet a quarter of a billion children are denied education.
In 2012 a peer-reviewed study done by researchers at the University of Nevada at Reno, discovered an astonishing fact, 90% of the seventh and eighth grade public school students didn’t like wearing uniforms (Claudene Wharton). If your student, kid, or relative says they dislike school uniforms, then they probably don't like wearing them. School uniforms in public schools undermine the promise of a free education by imposing an extra expense on families. In most inner city schools they require uniforms of some type of uniform, from a certain color or style. In those schools the students parents have to pay for these uniforms which could cost up to $249 for one child (School uniforms).
However, many children in several countries such as Niger, Chad, and Bangladesh do not have the luxury to daydream about it as they are often victims of child marriage (Birech, 2013). Child marriage can be simply defined as marriage before the age of eighteen (Birech 2013). This practice is more widespread in poor, rural areas wherein it can be seen as a way to alleviate poverty (Nnadi, 2014). It has been estimated that up to 700,000,000 girls alive today are victims of child marriage and current efforts are only enough to keep statistics at a standstill considering the rapid growth of population (Girls Not Brides, n.d.). Studies show that if efforts are not increased, 1.2 billion more girls will be victims by the year 2050 (Girls Not Brides, n.d.).
It is because children are born in undeveloped countries that might have an illness happening that could end their life and the country might not have the proper medicine needed. The only solution is to come to the United States and offer them the proper medicine needed to save their child 's life. Every year there’s more than 300,000 to 400,000 children born to illegal immigrants in the United States. It comes to the conclusion that parents come to the United States in order for their children to be born in a place where their child 's future would be brighter than theirs. It is stated in the 14th Amendment that if you are born in the United States you are officially a United States citizen, so why shouldn 't they come to the United States for exceptional opportunities?
In 2016, over 106,958 crimes against children were recorded, including murder, physical assault and rape. 75% of India’s population earn less than 5,000 Indian rupees a month, that is 78 American dollars. A person has to physically look to find this information because globalization has covered it with the festival of colours, or Holi, and tours of natural sights away from the overpopulated cities and towns. While some would argue that globalization is the reason these problems are known to some, one could counteract that by asking why globalization hasn’t done anything to stop it. People want to see India, but not the india where less than 5% of people pay income tax, they want Henna on their hands and feet and to swim in the Indian Ocean.
Every year illegal immigrants come into our country and with them they bring their children. Roughly a million children are brought here yearly as their parents seek better lives for their families. That’s where the United States struggles to enforce laws and kick them out because they’re young and most likely had no say in whether or not to enter our country. I sympathize for the kids no doubt, but the fact that they have entered the country illegally is unacceptable; for according to the rule of law, no person is above the law nor below it. According to the law, it is ILLEGAL to enter the United States without going through the process of naturalization.
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. One important reason that undocumented residents should be allowed a pathway to citizenship is that many of them have American families, and tearing them apart and splitting them up would cause serious trauma. According to Senator Charles Shumer, writing in an upfront magazine in 2016, trying to deport undocumented residents rather than providing them with a legal
This becomes more controversial because of who is being held in these centers. Families are migrating together and small children are being held in these detention centers. Federal judge Dolly M. Gee in the Federal District Court for the Central district of California ordered that these detention centers could not hold the migrant children. However, because of the overwhelming number being held they were given twenty days to be released. However, instead of these centers shrinking and being shut down, they are simply growing in numbers, due to the growing number of Central Americans seeking refuge.
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.
Trump plans to take out DACA which is a program that million of youth Immigrants use. Many dreamers rely on DACA since it provides them permit for work and protection from deportation. Trump wants to reduce the number of Immigrants in the U.S He pledged to cancel DACA during his presidential campaign. In the article “Homeland Security” by Alan Gomez, He states that about 750,000 Illegal Immigrants receive DACA which leads to a attainable education. DACA grants undocumented dreamers to have a life that many undocumented people take for granted.
