Since then, many Mexicans have been trying to emigrate themselves over to America, leaving behind their homelands.

Currently, the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona is concerned that illegal immigrants are detained and then deported without their belongings. Border Patrol agents confiscate detainee 's money, cell phones, ID cards and other belongings and in one third to one half of the cases, the detainees are deported and then dropped of in an unfamiliar Mexican town without their belongings. According to the ACLU of Arizona, this practice is contrary to international human rights. Deportees who are transported to a Mexican town where they do not know anyone and are alone, with nothing but the clothes on their backs are vulnerable. The Kino Border Initiative operates in Nogolas, the town where most of the Border Patrol buses leave deportees.
Citizens that are born in the U.S. are required to go to school to get an education so each and every citizen can have a great future. Why shouldn’t the kids of illegal immigrants not be able to go to school to have a good future?

When in school, they feel like they could actually live an American life and not be treated differently just because their guardians are immigrants. Kids of illegal immigrants should be able to go to school because most of the illegal immigrants enter the U.S. so their kids can have a better future than they (parents) do, schools can help the kids of illegal immigrants with their tuition, the United States has better schools than other places in the world.

My father and mother, being immigrants, have had a significant contribution to shaping my goals, perspectives, and ideals. Based on their experiences in America, I have developed more traits that I am proud to acknowledge, For instance, I have become a more ambitious and resilient person, which contributes to all of the work that I handle. I believe this was stemmed from watching my father come home from 12-hour shifts at an exhausting job each day. He was come a long way from when he first arrived in this country, working multiple minuscule jobs.

In this paper I have preferred to discuss the novel The Immigrant written by Manju Kapur a distinguished and an internationally acclaimed writer of the post-nineties era. She was born in Amritsar in 1948. She currently lives in Delhi, India.
