In “Is Ending DACA the Worst Decision Trump Has Made?”, William Finnegan uses historical background, statistics, surveys, and effective usage of pathos to synthesize the compelling dissertation that Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) within his immigration crackdown is a detrimental mistake and will cause immediate suffering among immigrant children. These influential sources contribute to Finnegan’s argument as historical background, statistics, and surveys provide sufficient objective information to support his views and pathos to connect the topic to the audience’s personal life. Although some critics may believe ending DACA is a positive decision for immigration regulation, the arguments
What is a sanctuary city? Sanctuary cities have polices, legal or unspoken, that restrict law enforcement from reporting a person’s immigration status. This policy began with Los Angeles in 1979 and now 30 other urban U.S. cities have enacted similar policies. These “sanctuary” cities have enacted legislation that is in direct violation of federal immigration law, ordinances that prohibit city employees or police officers from inquiring about someone’s immigration status. Furthermore, many more cities have unspoken sanctuary policies of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Usually, we see the sun as this bright, flaming star that none of us would dare go near. Why should we? The burning blob of hydrogen, magnesium and other things does its job and it does it very well. It heats our planet, giving us the chance to live and provides us with all kinds of wonderful vitamin D. According to new images that were taken by NASA, the Sun has a few more tricks up its sleeve, or should I say...aliens.
However, the process of physically and verbally removing whole families from their homes, and sending them back to places that some might not even recognize is just absurd. The numbers prove that immigrants do contribute to society and that hard working illegal immigrants, in my opinion, earned their right to be in the United States when their whole mindset is to provide something better for themselves and their. Yes, not all illegal immigrants pose positive impacts to society, but not all legal Americans are positive impacts to society
The Back of a Nonexistent Line In the film Documented and The New York Times article “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant,” Jose Antonio Vargas describes his experience as an undocumented immigrant in the United States and provides a passionate argument for creating a pathway to citizenship for others like Vargas, who are undocumented as well. Although both the film and article give the viewers and readers an insight into Vargas’ difficult journey, a particular scene in the film sends an unspoken message about the United States as a whole. In Documented, the scene in which Jose Antonio Vargas attends a Mitt Romney campaign rally is detrimental to the immigration debate because it demonstrates the need for Americans to be educated about undocumented
We are Mexico's dumping ground for their poor, uneducated and unskilled people. That makes us its social safety net. We bear the costs that Mexico should bear. Mexico's government actively encourages its disadvantaged people to immigrate to the United States, illegally or otherwise.
The increasing numbers of Latino youth who obtain college degrees are become active in politics, with the biggest trend of Latino population is youth and growth we can only hope for even more support in politics. “For the first time ever, Latinos accounted for one in ten votes cast nationwide in the presidential election, and Obama recorded the highest ever vote total for any presidential candidate among Latinos, at 75%” (Barreto and Segura 145). The Latino vote is becoming a crucial element to politics because of their size in population. . “While turnout declined nationally from 2008 to 2012 (by 2%), among Latinos there was a 28% increase in votes cast in 2012 (from 9.7 million to 12.5 million) and Obama further increased his vote share among Latinos in 2012 compared to 2008” (Barreto and Segura 145). In recent polls
Stop Deporting Innocent Immigrant Parents Should the Immigration Department (ICE) deport innocent parents? Do you think that their children can ever be successful in live after their situation? The Immigration Department (ICE) is an enforcing federal law governing border control so that there homeland secure and public safety. They also deport innocent people that come to the united states for a better life. I really think that it 's sad that an entire race comes to the US just to work and leave a family back suffering.
The American Declaration of Independence proudly proclaims what has become an iconic quote, and the cornerstone of American culture and government, “All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” (United States of America, 1776). However, a debate arises when applying such a statement to those who entered the country without following the legal pathway. Immigrants, both legal and illegal, often cross the borders of countries with not only themselves but a family in tow. In these families, children are not uncommon; a 2010 study revealed that there are an estimated 1 million unauthorized child immigrants in the United States,
With the population of illegal immigrants in the United States, averaging eleven million in 2014 and growing, many people have begun calling for a mass deportation program to eliminate all these individuals from the country. An illegal immigrant, also known as an illegal alien, is a foreigner who enters or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorizations, or a person who crosses the border by avoiding inspection. Many politicians claim that is it too expensive and almost impossible to expel illegal aliens however, they forget about the historical mass deportation back in 1954. America should lay down the law and start punishing and exporting illegal immigrants back to their homes and let them enter our country the legal
I believe that if these children choose to kill our soldiers with a passion, they should not be given amnesty. Not convinced yet? Well, this article will persuade you that these minors are dangerous, war praising, killing machines. My first point
Even worse, illegal immigration brings our country into poverty. All these children coming here for a better future have absolutely nothing! All they know is that their parents might be coming to them one day. What if their parents don’t come? The children grow up and live in poverty.
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.
Not only do immigrants cost America financially, but they also need housing, education, healthcare, and jobs which all have an individual impact from immigrants. Many of these issues are covered using tax payer dollars and then the overwhelming population due to this growth in immigrants will have to be addressed in each individual area or city. Some of these issues are fire stations and police officers to accommodate the larger populations, hiring enough teachers to educate the growing rate of children enrolled in the public schools, or providing welfare benefits such as food stamps or Medicaid to immigrants who are mostly of low-income
