Less skilled american citizens earn less money and have fewer job opportunities because they have to compete with immigrants in the job market. Hard workers could lose jobs to those who had just came to the United States. Illegal Immigrants should not
In “Let at America be America Again”, also by Langston Hughes, there are the poor white, and the slave blacks, and the immigrants as well. They were taken advantage of simply because they were not famous nor white, therefor they had no access to the American dream. The citizens without high social status must work hard in order to survive and live a decent life. They must work long hours at a job that may not have been their dream. They must service the rich in order to keep those same jobs that they have because their American dream never came true.
For many immigrants, becoming a U.S. citizen is not attainable due to the money and time, so the only option remaining is to flee and hide. Often, immigrants come to the U.S. to escape war, peril or poverty, though are not given the fair treatment and the chance they need to become citizens. The U.S. government should create a safe yet easy way to allow illegal immigrants to become U.S. citizens and provide them with the opportunity for a new life. Time and time again many immigrants are labeled with the terms such as terrorists or rapists. People assume that these words have no impact or effect because their own president continually uses them.
Americans had rarely accepted outsiders as equals, and that was the case with immigrants coming to the U.S in the 1840s to the 1920s. A time in America where immigrants were not considered inferior to native white Americans did not exist. The hatred of anything non-American, especially with the coming of World War I in 1914, would only cause more Americans to despise immigrants. Part of this was rooted simply in racism, which existed towards groups other than African Americans, but much of it was simply that Americans considered themselves the chosen people while everyone else was below them. Thus, despite immigrants being accepted into America, those immigrants were still treated far worse than white citizens between the 1840s and 1920s, for the prejudice against them was obvious even in the laws created.
-However: Studies have shown that despite of their low income levels Mexicans immigrants hardly ever utilize welfare services. Although they might extensively use medical services because of their low income households and avoid getting medical help which ultimately leads to progressed and worst conditions, they actually pay a substantial portion of the services out of pocket. They pay 25 billion in taxes and gain no benefit (Leighton Ku article 33). • Paragraph 5: Some Americans citizens do not accept illegal immigration because they argue that Mexicans are criminals. -However: A range of studies show there is no evidence immigrants commit more crimes than native-born Americans.
Even though the optimal American Dream doesn’t promise that all citizens will achieve personal success, it offers equality and fortunes for them to pursue dreams through hard work. However, during the Industrial Age, American Dream didn’t apply to lower-class proletariat. Most immigrants from southern and eastern Europe arrived in the United States to escape religious persecution and poverty in their home countries and also seek new opportunities because of advertisements of the American Dream. But, they did realize that fantasy differed from reality after their arrival. As unskilled foreigners who suffered poverty and lacked experience and English skills, immigrants lived in nasty tenements located in city ghettos, earned little wages that
Illegal immigrants frequently suffer from low pay fear of being reported to immigration authorities if they were to complain. Many believe that having immigrant here in the U.S is a huge cost issue for everyone else who pay taxes. The social atmosphere provided important resources for everybody, not just client 's, wide range of groups’ institutions can offer support, including family, friends, work, church, sporting groups, local businesses. Service providers don’t judge "a client 's expressed aspirations are accepted as sincere. Acceptance validation replaced skepticism about what clients can 'realistically ' achieve (Weick, A, Rapp, C., Sullivan, W. P., & Kisthardt, W., 1989)”.
Professional athletes deserve what they make, due to the fact that have little job security, they pay large taxes, and the money that they are paid with is privately owned. Some people might argue that it isn’t right that athletes make much more money than jobs that are important to society, like teachers or firefighters. Although I agree that these professions are underpaid, this argument simply doesn’t make sense. Athletes are not funded with government money. They are paid privately by their owners.
Yes, illegal immigrants should be allowed the rights that a citizen has. However, I believe they should only get them if they go through the naturalization process. On the other hand, illegal immigrants today are not able to go through the naturalization process, and that is one reason why I believe that the immigrants should be able to have the same respects, rights, and responsibilities of any other Citizen or legal immigrant. Another reason why illegal immigrants should have U.S citizen rights is the immigrants come to America for different reasons. For example, maybe they were not making enough money to feed their family, or they didn’t have clean water to drink or wash. Would you want to come to a place everyone tells you is better, has
Non-Mexicans have strongly been influenced by the media, entertainment, and news. These negative perceptions have contributed to prejudices and discrimination of the Mexican people. Most people who have these negative perceptions of the individuals in this culture have little to no direct exposure to the culture. If society has direct exposure to the culture, it would reveal a culture that is hardworking and grateful to be here in the United States. Mexicans are often working jobs that Americans believe they are too inferior to work.
