“Preservation of one’s own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures.” - Cesar Chavez. Mr. Chavez explains that even though immigrants have to leave much behind, they can become part of their new country and still keep some of their own culture. Many immigrants have to deal with the issues of other cultures disrespecting and calling them names and sometimes even getting harassed by others. Mexican immigrants are a big percentage of the United States’ population. About 57% of Mexico’s population leaves to the US to have a much better life. Immigrants are not bad people, they just want a better life, a life like we have.
Attempting to escape poverty and violence, immigrants are obligated to leave everything behind in their country and embark for the United States illegally. Because of the relentless threats received from notorious gangs, many undocumented immigrants opt for illegal entrance as opposed to waiting in the “imaginary ‘immigration line’” for an immigration visa which “is already 4.4 million people long” (Santana, 2014). After being coerced to join a gang, my father was forced to hop on a daunting train called “La Bestia” from El Salvador to the U.S. I can attest that my father is a hardworking individual who has contributed to this nation. Avoiding any bias, I believe it is unethical and inhumane to send those who come to this nation

As Americans For Immigration Control is about stopping millions of illegal aliens who sneak their way across the borders of mexico into the U.S every year. As the Americans For Immigration Control is an activist organization with more than a quarter million members nation wide. Consisting of citizens of all races, creeds, and colors. The Americans For Immigration Control also focuses on locating those illegal aliens who found their way across the border and are already in the U.S and
While interpreters and translators can work in any field, they frequently come across a sea of doubts when deciding what word to use, therefore, building a glossary on specialized terms can make our jobs more convenient. Even though this is a time-consuming task, at the end this will pay off. As my area of interest is interpreting in immigration settings, I have chosen to build a glossary on immigration based on the book from the series Current Controversies Immigration, by Debra A. Miller, published by Cynthia Sanner.
We need to do better and reach a resolution to fix the system. The Immigration Reform which would change the current immigration policy remains in limbo. We’ve seen in recent years the implementation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, most commonly known as DACA. This program was implemented to help illegal immigrants of any age who entered the United States continuously since January 1, 2010. With there being limited options for many illegal immigrants, we continue to see a rise in immigration fraud. Unfortunately, immigrants are constant victims of imposters posing as immigration attorneys. Paying thousands of dollars only to later find out nothing was ever done on their behalf. Some have also resulted to obtaining fake documents from these individuals in order to live a life in a way conducive to
There are many people who live on planet earth. With this large number of people, many of them are looking for work to support themselves. However, when people begin crossing into other countries illegally, it can cause issues with the citizens of that country. Illegal immigration can cause major issues with the country and the citizens that reside in it. Illegal immigrants get from one country to another through some sort of illegal method of travel. This is what makes them “illegal” immigrants. The people who come into a country illegal in search of work or a job, are using up resources that could be used on others that aren’t illegal.
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.
Immigration has always been a major part of American history. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people travel to the United States in search of a better life. Of the 1.49 million immigrants who traveled to the United States in 2016, 150,400 immigrants were from Mexico. There have also been many people from Mexico who have immigrated illegally to America, with 5.6 million Mexican unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. in 2015 and 2016. The large scale of immigration, both legal and illegal, has brought up issues such as national security and the U.S. economy. The U.S. Senate is struggling to find a viable solution; they can’t seem to come up with a plan on how to deal with immigration that appeases both sides of the political spectrum.
The most pressing issues facing Hispanics would have to be deportation of illegal immigrants. Honestly, most of the people that get deported are treated unjustly, because their goal in life was come to the United States and pursue the American dream of living a better life. Just like U.S. Citizens from other races have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, all Hispanics should too.
Within the United States, one of the hardest things to do is motivating people to participate politically. A normal American frankly is not interested in the actions taken by a politician on a day-to-day bases. People naturally think as individuals instead on what is best for the group. The documentary “Immigration Battle” tracks the actions taken in Washington to attempt the passing of immigration reform and shows how low political participation is an issue. Currently Immigration reform is still stuck in government but there is still a multitude of people attempting to get something passed. This essay will discuss the issues involved with immigration reform, what is effective in moving forward, why Congress can’t get a pathway to legalization
‘’Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!’’ These specific words are carved into the bottom of our country’s mother, the Statue of Liberty. A country built on such great words, only to forget about them later in its years. The immigration reform policy that President Barack Obama and the current administration have created is something that will give us the hope our founding fathers had so many years ago. The reform is an ethical and moral necessity that will help stabilize our nation’s southern borders, reduce the tension between specific ethnic groups, help those undocumented
Due to a recent repeal of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival), a family is left wondering whether it is going to remain together or be separated. Domingo Gonzales, a man who illegally arrived in the United States at a young age, was accepted into the DACA program on his second arrival into the US. This program allows individuals who entered the US as a minor (illegally) to receive a two-year delay of deportation and a work-permit. Now that the DACA has be repealed, Gonzales’ wife, Flor Torres and three children (one on the way) do not know what is going to happen to their husband/father. Others like Gonzalez can apply for a two-year extension if a deadline is met. As a reaction to the repeal, a “conservative Dream Act” was brought
For this paper, my research 's main focus will be on Immigration Policies, like ICE raids. I will investigate and analyze how ICE raids affected and still affect Latinx/Chicanx communities. On top of the negative impacts it causes, I will be looking into the history of how ICE was formed and how it is an oppressive system that is known to target mainly undocumented Latinxs. Although ICE was “founded” in 2003, I will be including history of alternative methods the country used before ICE was established. The most deportations occurred under Obama 's presidential term and given the new administration, that is upfront and clear about being anti-immigrant and anti-Mexican, communities have no idea what to expect. I chose this topic for that
The immigration policy in the United States is widely debated topic especially with the upcoming Presidential elections. This issue of the immigration policy can be viewed from several different angles and perspectives.. Some believe that we Americans should accept all immigrants into our country with open arms, while there are others who believe that the United States must completely isolate themselves and close their doors from those looking to immigrate into our country. I believe that there are a lot of changes needed to be done in order to solve the problems that come with immigration. The idea of building a wall between the border of the United States and Mexico and the idea of deporting the approximate 12 million
Immigration is defines as the action of leaving one's home country to start a new life in another country. Immigration has been a recent topic for politicians and the new president elect of the Donald trump. Undocumented immigrants serve as a problem to our nation's economy and well being both socially and economically.
