Relocating to a new country and starting a new life is always a daunting process for most of the immigrants. My focus for the WP3 is on the challenges the immigrants have to deal with when they arrived in the U.S I work with one of the interpreting companies that employ a diverse group of immigrants, so my plan is to interview some of my work colleagues. I want to know their personal stories of coming to the U.S. How tough was their immigration process? Did they experience any culture shock when they first arrived to the U.S and was it hard to adapt? Most of the immigrants have to pass the extreme vetting before they come to the U.S. Also, the cultural difference sometimes deters them from seeking jobs and receiving services. It is not easy
One challenge I think is very big for Mexican immigrants or any immigrant in general is learning a new language. Having to learn the language can take a very long time to be able to do this can affect their lives in many ways, for example; not knowing English or any other language, but their own can affect many things such as their education, getting a job, or even trying to fix family relationships. Many immigrant parents force their children to learn the new language of the country they migrated to which may give them a life a bit easier. Education is another challenge Mexican immigrants face while living in the US. When they first start out they have very low levels and even low Socioeconomic status (SES).
Julie A. Su does an outstanding job explaining the conditions, and problems immigrants have to face when entering a country in which they are not familiar with. Since the beginning of American history, we have prided or self’s with having a free country in which dreams and goals can be reached
Adjusting to America How tough is it coming to America from another country? Every year, thousands of people immigrate to America alone for different reasons whether it be war or just to start a new, better life. For some, it was not even a choice whether they could leave, because the only other option was eventually death. Even with help from others, the transition from their old customs, to the American lifestyle is very hard to do. Many people had to adjust living in the United States.
Throughout African American History, there have been many migration concerning African Americans. From the Middle Passage, all the way to the Modern Migration that is happening right now. African Americans have been moved from where their African roots lies, to being moved all over the United States. These movements have done a great deal to African American History, as they have affected the customs that African Americans have practiced over time. These movements have been great in their own right, and the greatest one of all of them is the Great Migration.
Alongside the route, there were various things or experiences that the migrants experienced. Basically, there were numerous accidents that they encountered for instance death as a result of being run over by wagons. Another one was accidents due to gunshots from half-cocked pistols in their wagons or from various individuals who at times used to fool around with guns. Conversely, the migrants contracted various ailments majorly yellow fever Oregon fever. At least two-thirds of the migrants lost their lives due to this quick killing disease.
If I told you that to go on vacation you would have to try multi-able times and risk death to go on your vacation, but what if that vacation gave you a new beginning a new reason to work hard a reason to wake up in the morning would you still go. That's the question these immigrants these outsiders this is what they have to go through to come to our country, but yet we still don't want them to come to our country. These people are just like us human beings with the same body parts and interests, but yet we treat them like they are not excepted here that they are outcasts. We are all immigrants to the world to the United States and if we are welcomed why aren't they. They have to go through this struggle of life or death just to come here you
Both during and after moving to a new country, immigrants face many hardships. The process of obtaining citizenships is difficult in itself, but even when citizenship is earned there are still challenges. One major difficulty some immigrants may face is dealing with xenophobia. Immigrants who experience xenophobic prejudice can find adjustment to a new life very difficult. In contrast, those who are treated with kindness and as equal citizens find assimilating to a new culture easier.
I asked a series of questions relating to their migration and working experiences. Some of the questions I asked included; What was your journey like coming to the US? Can you share some hardships you faced crossing the border? Besides economic opportunities, what other motives did you have to reach the US? Did the idea of the “American Dream” influence your journey?
Describe the “New Immigration”, and explain how it differed from the “Old Immigration” and why it aroused opposition from many Native-Born Americans. Antiforeignism was not a new concept in America in the 1880s. It had begun in the 1840s when the first large influx of immigrants emigrated to America, predominantly from Ireland and Germany. The American, or “Know Nothing”, political party was created specifically for the sake of excluding and barring the newcomers from equal opportunities, especially with the case of the Irish in the northeast. Fast forward forty years later and the Irish and the German have become common place amongst the native born Americans and the new wave of immigrants emerges.

Imagine you have to leave your family to go into a country you've never been in before and you don't even know the language, just to live a better live. There is a lot of obstacles immigrants face and the use many strategies to overcome them. From collection one i will use real life problems that immigrants face when they come to america and face many obstacles but have multiple strategies to overcome them. Immigrants arriving in America in search for a better life face many obstacles. For example, when immigrants enter the us they have to adapt to a new language.
My most rewarding accomplishment consists of my ability to overcome the fear and weakness that was conceived upon my arrival to the United States from Mexico, in addition to a newly evolved character which allowed me to achieve academic, professional, and personal success. Nearly seven years ago, my mother and I immigrated from a harsh economic climate in Mexico that was plagued with unemployment. Additionally, our family faced bankruptcy. While holding onto our faith, we left our hometown with only what we could carry and bought two one-way bus tickets. With nothing more than fear, two bags, and $50 in each of our pockets, we set out for what would be the most challenging journey of our lives.
Going into this interview project I was curious to learn more about the experiences that immigrants had to go through. My interviewee, Mario, is an 18 year old immigrant that migrated to America from Bolivia at the age of 10. I have known Mario since middle school and we’ve been friends since then. We have grown up around the same area too and now we both attend the University of Maryland.
However, one must bear in mind those better, services, health and education can only come to those who can pay. For an example in most part of the world such as Brazil, China and South Africa migrants occupy informal settlement or slums where they are completely excluded from the so-called pull factors. The issue of population has been cited as one of the contributing factor in
