While, at times, detention of immigrants may be justified, the seeming inability to challenge being detained and the variation in decisions according to where you are detained is troubling (End Immigration Detention Network, 2014, p.4). However, I am somewhat sceptical of the exact degree of and reason for the variation that they assert. While, certainly, variations in decision making may be due to personal biases of those reviewing a case, there may be substantial differences between the types of people detained across the country and the reasons for their detention. As such, I think more information is necessary before detention review can completely be regarded as “at the whims of an appointed board member” (End Immigration Detention Network, 2014,
Unlike Marx who views Multiculturalism from the theory heading downwards Dalrymple views multiculturalism from the ground going up. His day to day experiences prove that "not all cultural values are compatible or can be reconciled by the enunciation of platitudes. " This means that although multiculturalists support the idea that people should embrace different cultures, there are many challenges that make implementation difficult. Dalrymple argues that the idea that we can co-exist in a society whereby the law doesn't favor one culture at the expense of another one is a lie. In short, the author's main argument is that some cultural values will always be superior to others in every society and the idea that all cultural values can be compatible with every ethnic group makes no
In Kwame Anthony Appiah’s essay, the Case for Contamination, Appiah delivers his opinion on society’s growing culture and the effects that have occurred due to society’s growing influence, such influences include the globalization, both political and lifestyle, and cultural preservation aspects of society. Within his standpoint, Appiah offers many valid points on the positive aspects on the development of globalizations and its key role in society. However, despite Appiah’s lengthy essay, his argument lacks sources that support his claims, ultimately causing his views on the subject to stem from personally experiences. Due to this, the essay insufficiently discusses the depth of how damaging globalization is to a cultural, which essentially
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
Immigration is a controversial issue, as it is meticulously associated with such topics as economic well-being, international competitiveness, homeland security, and as well as human tolerance. An immigration policy is a policy that a state deals with the travel of people across its borders into the country, but particularly those that aim to work and stay in the country. Immigration policies can range from permitting no migration at all to permitting most types of migration, such as free immigration. “Many politicians and workers argue that immigrants-legal and illegal-undercut wages and take jobs from native-born workers” (Immigrants and the Economy, 169).
The first paragraph explains America 's motives describes them as explorers and conquerors, this of course differs from Rushdie’s cultural values of migration and bettering ones life instead of ones nationalistic expectations (35-40). Sander’s on the other hand shows distaste with this ideology as he says it brings harsh effects as a result of bringing visions and values along with migrants as they travel (44-52). Migration values clashed due to the fact that from Sanders perspective, migrants try and bring outside influences in, whilst Rushdie’s idea of migrants focuses more on what migrants can bring to America as a country of explorers and
Immigration is one of the most important chapters in our country 's history. With the perks of immigration, there are also downfalls such as problems with cultural differences and language barriers which have not been easily resolved and often lead to hostility among natives. Federal laws have resulted in mass immigration of both documented and undocumented aliens. There is nothing wrong with documented immigration in moderation. However, undocumented immigration must be contained before there are serious consequences.
One of the biggest hot button issues today is very global is the issue of immigration and refugees. On one side of the issue, it is thought that accepting immigrants from usually rough backgrounds is the right thing to do and we are obligated as humans to accept them to our country. On the other side, it is thought that nothing good can come from it whether it would be drugs, violence, or gang ties from Mexico and South America or Islamic extremists from places in the Middle East, especially Syria. In a world that is so focused on social issues but also very mindful of terrorist groups and attacks, it makes for a very interesting debate to think about because it is a very slippery slope. It is best to help out people struggling but there is
Williams and Fuist (2014) were more interested in the effect of the weakening nation-state. As nation-state being threatened by the neoliberal globalization and ethno-religious national sentiments, it seems diversity and tension within America are strengthened, with the fear of immigrants being very obvious. Symbolic differentiation among Americans became salient as the tension between and separation among Americans became more common. Yet this is not enough to dismiss civil religion, however, civil religion was heavily contested, losing the legitimacy and a charismatic nation-state. Although we still see the aspect of unity within the expression of civil religion, what is being stressed here is the tribalistic civil religion, the identity that “often valorize some elements of the nation-state while challenging others.”
It may seem like the arguments we have just explored would become invalid too, because cultural changes may not be quantifiable by any known method; we could respond by acknowledging that whilst cultural or domestic changes are not empirically quantifiable, they are definitely measurable. We know to what extent tourism affected the Francoist Regime by the leaflets and posters promoting the ‘War Route of the North’ found in countries around the world . Therefore, Gregor’s point about the usefulness of the 6 points themselves gives us a wider understanding of the core concepts of totalitarianism, and how to properly define
The National Association of Social Work created a code of ethics that guides social workers on what core values that they should uphold during work (NASW, 2008). When discussing social welfare policy’s, the NASW code of ethics can be applied to immigration due to social justice being one the core values. Social justice consists of fighting for rights for individuals who lack the access to resources. The immigrants that are discussed in the articles, have a lack of social justice due to the deportation. This is where social workers need to step in adjust the privileges and distributions within society.
In order to begin tackling the topical issue of immigration, our society has to begin asking itself why there is a stark division between God 's vision and what 's actually happening. However, understanding these different discrepancies requires that we be willing to include both sides of the conversation without the predisposition to solve the issue with deportation. Although the option seems like an effortless way to solve immigration, ultimately deportation not only steals individuals away from their families and communities, but it also would cost the United States from $700-900 billion to deport every illegal immigrant and an additional $100 billion to make sure that the deported individual doesn 't come back into the United States.
America is an amazing country, but there is more that could be done to protect the border. The united states must change the way they monitor the border, and make it more strict. Though diversity is good, there are too many illegal immigrants entering the United States. I do not think it is fair that people can illegally cross the border and take jobs from Americans. In order to increase protection of the border, the United States should have men posted throughout the border, increase security, and make the punishments for illegally crossing more intense.
This number of illegal immigrants is occurring in the United States. President Obama claims that the border is secure, but the facts prove that belief wrong. There is an illegal immigration problem in the U.S., and this problem starts at the security of the border. The United States of America needs to do more to secure its border.
“Nearly 15 years after the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history, the government admits that more than half a million foreigners with expired visas—like the 9/11 jihadists—remain in the country and thousands are from terrorist nations like Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya and Syria”(Retrieved from www.judicialwatch.org) (Judicial Watch, 2016). Government has to enforce immigration law and construct a useful plan to determine overstayed visa before they become a threat such as Arizona and Texas, the police can stop people and ask them their identity to determine if they are here legally. What happens in September 11th was a good example of unacceptable behavior due to unknown terrorists attack the twin center which cost the government billion of dollars to clean up the mess and rebuild a new building as well, beside the compensation for people who were affected emotionally and by the chemical substance. Therefore, the government spends a fortune to detect and punished who’s responsible for this tragedy.
