The last reason i think that kids should be set off free is because when the children are fighting they can be in serious danger. The first reason i think that child soldiers should not be prosecuted is because while kids are young they don 't have much control over what they get to do, lots of kids have to do what their parent or guardian says, and i am sure that when kids get recruited they have no choice but to go. In an article i read said that when a child soldier is recruited that they have no choice but to join. This matches with the story because it explains that kids don’t have a choice but to join when they get recruited. Kids also don’t get to choose what
So why should they be punished after graduation for having no control over where they grew up, even though they received an education here as well, and must leave the country because they don’t have legal status here? It would be completely unfair to deny a person citizenship, when they grew up here, just because they were not born in the U.S. To become a legal citizen
Many people that came to the United States illegally have been worried about deportation ever since they have stepped foot in this country. I remember my cousin many years ago coming with a student visa from Europe and decided on not going back home. He was always so careful of everything he did to not get into trouble with the law. Because he decided to continue his education at Wright College, he was being charged the international student rate, which was around 3x as much as a in district student. The life of an illegal immigrant is not easy and hopefully with this new application, immigrants will receive a tool to help them sleep better knowing that they have some knowledge of what is taking place around
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
Firstly, when Will said ‘To end the practice of “birthright citizenship,” all that is required is to correct the misinterpretation of that amendment first sentence’ (601). How could anybody say it was a misinterpretation on something that someone else wrote? We as a nation should look at immigrants not as a threat, but for an opportunity for a friendship. Some people might not have been able to go anywhere, so they came to America to feel relived from the stress that was put a pond them. Thus, many might not like people coming over to the “land of the free”, but what
“Enrique feels he would rather be with his mother than get the money and the gifts she sends.” 26, Enrique’s journey, Sonia Nazario. This immigrant boy called Enrique says he prefers to live in poverty rather than not having his mother at his side. After reading the book Enrique’s Journey, I have learned that is not worth it for a mother to abandon her children just to follow the American dream with the illusion of provide a better future for them. Broken homes causes many problems in our society, particularly, abandoned children grow up with low self-esteem and resentful feelings, they choose bad companies and they often consume drugs or alcohol. There are more damages than benefits for the families that are separated because one or both parents came to United States to work.
The Truth about Undocumented Students in the United States The issue of undocumented immigrants and undocumented children has hardly been out of the news these past few years. The hot topic affects everyone from immigrants themselves to policymakers and US citizens. Undocumented immigrants have typically entered the United States without permission and have no legal right to remain in the country. Undocumented immigrants could be people with expired visas or paperwork, or immigrants in deportation procedure. Undocumented students are normally brought by parents or caregivers to America when they are very young.
Don 't get me wrong, it is bad but it 's not done with the intention of hurting someone else but to try and change their future. To get out of the violence, drug, and alcohol abuse where they come from. "In the summer of 2014, we saw a wave of mothers and children arrive to the U.S. to escape extreme violence in Central America. These mothers fled because of gangs murdering their husbands, targeting their sons for recruitment, and threatening their daughters with sexual violence. More than 80 percent of these migrant women detained were found to have a credible threat to their safety if they were returned home.
Would make people think twice about entering into our country illegally. While it may seem harsh to deny citizenship to someone born in our country the bigger picture is that their parents should have never been here in the first place if they didn’t have a visa or green card. We are losing our American culture by allowing so many exceptions, most of the anchor babies born in our country are still raised under their parents cultures and beliefs and the family members they sponsor usually wont adapt to are culture, many refuse to learn or speak English, they refuse to work an honest job, or even become a citizen. They want the benefits of living in our great country but don’t want to actually become part of our
When teens face this type of situations they should not feel like it is the end of the world for them. “They were denied access to education and rehabilitation programs and left without help or hope” (Garinger 1). Without the help they need, how will they learn to deal with everything and understand that what they did was wrong. As a kid growing up we get lectures from your parents telling us right from wrong and without the help they could fall into a bad road. “As a former juvenile court judge, I have seen firsthand the enormous capacity of children to change and turn themselves around” (Garinger 2).
