A person’s rights shouldn’t be determined by where they were born, but rather by what they can do; what that person is capable to do contribute to that nation. Many don’t know this, but a significant amount of immigrants fought in the US civil war. Should the people who help our ancestors get your freedom, not deserve to have their children educated? “It is estimated that 11.1 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2011.

It is understandable why someone would come to the United States here illegally; They couldn’t get papers, a green card or permission to go. If an immigrant had relatives who were Americans, chances were still limited. Immigrants who committed countless crimes in America or another country should be deported, but those who’ve done nothing wrong and tried to make a living should stay. Not all immigrants are the same, and it’s unfair to punish them all. It isn’t fair to give citizenship as a reward for people who broke the immigration laws.
There are some immigrant workers that are getting fired. I hate that some of those immigrants have families that they love and care about, then they get separated. Or that people who have to work a lot for things so they can afford to eat, have shelter. I mean that’s all going away because of what they are. I’m still going to talk about like illegal immigrants and things like that subject.
Friendship and overcoming obstacles are two that stood out to me, but I think the most important theme is that illegal immigrants are people too. Several times in the book, Joshua Davis talked about people downgrading the four boys and their families Americans treating them harshly. I think the book was trying to show us that there are more stories of illegal immigrants and that they are people too. I recommend the books: The Language of Flowers, The Glass Castle, and All the Light We Cannot See. All of these books are different from those that most teens read, and they all have great storylines and plots that young readers can take away

There has been a frightening increase in illegal immigration in the U.S. The amount of illegal immigrants, in America, is a major concern to our citizens and government. About 11.7 million immigrants are living in the United States illegally and the numbers continue to climb, according to the Pew Research Center Hispanic Trends Project. In order to control this, greater measures must be taken to control the amount of illegal immigrants that enter the U.S. The existing immigration laws alone is not a good solution to refuse illegal immigration.
According to Open Society Foundations, "People come to the United States for the promise of freedom and opportunity. But the current immigration system in the United States is broken: Families are separated, immigrant workers are exploited, people die trying to cross the border, and there is rampant discrimination against immigrants". Most immigrants claim they move to America for the job opportunities all over the nation. "There are currently 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. People move to make life better for themselves and their families.
Introduction: Illegal immigrants are going over boarders daily and want to make a living outside their own countries. We must decide if it would be the best for our country to give them the right to apply and go for valid driver’s licenses. Should illegal immigrants be allowed to get driver licenses? It 's surprising to me that this is even a valid question.
Once in America, they hope to find family members or at least a possibility of work in an effort to help their families. Their perils range from exposure to the elements, to loss of limb from slipping while riding the train, to rape and torture, and death. Neither the children nor their parents are guaranteed survival from the trip. They only have a dream of a better life and hope that once in America; that they will be able to help the families left behind.
