Once called the "City of Mosques," Fallujah had around 200 mosques, of which sixty were completely destroyed during the fighting. Fallujah was held by U.S. forces until just recently, in which insurgents retook the city that the U.S. and allies had fought so hard to
However, document 11 shows that 59 million Indians died from 40 famines while under British rule, the deaths in these famines being the result of forced cash crops. India only went through 18 famines in the span of 600 years before they were ruled by the British (Doc 11). This is significant because the deaths from famine outweigh the effects of Malaria, if not being just as bad. Quinine will not save the
11.5 million immigrants come into the United States every year. 13.5% of United States population are migrants that leave everything behind and their family to get there, and only 28% of foreign immigrants from Mexico make it to the United States every year. Additionally 64.5% of hondurans are living in poverty, according to The Immigration Policy Institute. Sonia Nazario demonstrates how the matter of immigration affects family values, causes discriminacion and more drug use. Many cultures around the world have different ideas about all of these subjects.
In fact, according to a study of attitudes towards Muslim Americans post 9/11, after 9/11 “the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reported a 1,700 percent increase of hate crimes against Muslim Americans between 2000 to 2001” (Khan). While discrimination towards Muslim Americans existed before, after 9/11 the general public’s view of Muslim Americans rapidly declined and resulted in an increase in the Muslim-terrorist stereotype as well as many individuals having to face unwanted hostility. In a study on microaggressions directed towards Muslim Americans, a participant shared, “’A truck driver said to my mom, ‘Say hi to Osama,”’ presuming that because she was Muslim she was associated with terrorism (Nadal). While in another case, a participant described how because his name was Osama, his seventh grade teacher “accidentally” called him Osama bin Laden during attendance, “but [he knew] she was doing it on purpose [because] she kept doing it over and over” (Nadal). These subtle actions are forms of aggressions based out of contempt, hated, and fear towards Muslim Americans.
So after McCarthy made these statements, it almost made like a ripple effect by having everyday people, being accused of people that “suspected” that they were communists as well. And as a result of everyday people being accused, they would be put on a blacklist. In today’s world, the person that has caused others to be accused is Osama Bin Laden. The people that play the role of the accuser, is the American government. And the people who are accused are Muslim Refugees from the middle east.
The British Empire notably colonised Australia and sent upwards of 150,000 criminals to prisons on the country (Shaw, 1966). The impact of this is seen in the Australian flag, which still contains the Union Flag, more than 80% of the Australian population have origins in Europea and English is by far the most spoken language (Brewer et al, 2013). South East Asia had been colonised by five European Empires; France, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Britain (Wilson, no date). The colonisation was primarily for trading posts, however, the colonies provided labour and land for the colonists. A long lasting impact of the colonists was Christianity, which had been introduced to all the colonies in South East Asia, and remains a prominent minority religion today (Goh, 2005).
Gomez, he talks about the moral issue with immigration process and our failed state of American immigration policy. (Gomez, 2016) After years of debating, it is agreed upon that our immigration system is damaged lacking reform. Gomez writes, “More than 2 million people have been deported in the last eight years alone. The overwhelming majority are not criminals. And up to one-quarter of recent deportations have been of a mother or father of a U.S. citizen child.

Great intentions don’t always reflect in the actions. If the great intentions aren’t reflected in the actions they are not received by those being effected by them. This was the case with the Indian Removal Act of 1830. At the beginning of the 1830s, nearly 125,000 Indian tribes lived on millions of acres of land that their ancestors had occupied and cultivated for generations located in the south of east coast. By the end of the decade, very few Native Americans remained anywhere in the southeastern United States, the federal militias came to Georgia to force them to leave their homelands and walk thousands miles westward to a specific designated " Indian territory " across the Mississippi River.
