However, mid-way through the paper, Alderman indicated that “eating ortolan is also a surreptitious pleasure beyond France” and picked out Anthony Bourdain, an American chef, as someone susceptible to the delicate flavors of the bird. In this way, the author adequately redirects any unpleasant opinions concentrated towards French chefs and disperse them such that they do not bear the brunt of the anger. Another argument Alderman quickly shuts down was given by Mr. Dubourg’s group of environmental activists and it was that “the ortolan population fell by more than 40 percent between 2001 and 2011.” Naturally, many would be greatly concerned after reading that such a large portion has fallen, but it was followed up by a reassuring “study indicating that the ortolan population in Northern Europe is around 30 million.” By this point, readers have now been deceived to believe that the decline in ortolans is not such a distressing issue that French chefs should not “maintain their tradition.”

Additional proponents for the immigration reform have argued that immigration helps only for one purpose; and that is to gain the assistances of welfare. If this is true why are immigrants flooding the nation to live off billions of tax dollars from America? The majority of tax dollars are being used for military spending, government’s projects and not on welfare.

In 1622, when Bradford helped write “Mourt’s Relation,” he was encouraging people to join him and his group of Puritans to settle in the New World.
