As (Charles Schumer, Upfront, 2016)has made clear “Without reform our immigration laws threaten to tear apart families” What Senator Schumer is trying to say here is that when immigrants are deported some of their family might be deported but one or two can stay since they have citizenship. In some cases this might be a child that the US keeps in and the family does not see each other again. Of course it would be possible to disagree with the view that deporting would tear families apart and instead argue that not deporting encourages immigrants to break more laws since they already broke one. However this argument is flawed because it is an opinion and also irrelevant to this argument. This is because this argument is about deportation tears apart families who have legal family members.
Something that I feel isn’t realized when people donate to causes like these, is that their donations are providing someone who isn’t a citizen to receive an organ that could and most likely would have gone to a U.S. citizen. One who is paying or is going to pay taxes, one who belongs to United States of America and didn’t just cross a border. While yes it’s a tragedy that these illegal immigrants are coming into the country just to receive treatment that isn't available or is even harder to require in their native country, it’s wrong that they are getting organs over citizens of the U.S. . They, as
You an have one of two things, a welfare state with very restrictive immigration, or you can have a non-welfare state with complete freeflow of immigration. Realistically speaking, We do have a welfare state so.. we have to shut the border instead of incentivising millions more non english speaking, low education, poor, low skill people to cross the border. We have to start enforcing our visas because 40% of illegals have overstayed their visas. Then we figure out to do with the folks here. Whether that is a pathway to citizenship or to legalization that doesn 't become immediate until after the border is secure.
The U.S federal government also had issues with immigrants about their health and safety. In order to prevent outbreaks in the urban areas the immigrants would reside in, the U.S federal government had legitimate reasons to restrict immigration. Combining this with the fact that many of these immigrants were poor and uneducated, the birth of Ellis Island is inevitable result of demand and necessity to the immigration crisis. Ellis Island was meant to restrict immigrants from entering the United States, but many still entered. It came about after the government converted the former military base into an immigration center.
The illegal immigrants are also not paying any taxes or into social security. To look at the opposing person 's shoes or an illegal immigrant, they entered to US seeking a better life and want to be able to stay in the US to ensure safety for their family and a good education and opportunities for the children, just like any other citizen in the United
One of America’s most controversial issues today is the border between the United States and Mexico. The big part of the issue is due to illegal immigration, which is when foreigners enter the U.S. without an entry or an immigrant visa. President Trump says he has found a solution, otherwise known as the “border wall,” but this will not stop people from wanting a better life. Of course I get why he and others would want to continue the process obviously to keep us safe from terrorists and other dangers of the world, but, to every pro there is a con. Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped.
According to the website Politifact, the president of the united States Donald Trump said on January 30th, 2018 that the immigration visa lottery “ randomly hands out green cards without any regard for skill, merit, or the safety of American people”. This statement has been proven false by politifact: “ While lottery applicants are randomly selected, they must meet education and work experience requirements. They must also be vetted by the United States government before being allowed to come to the United States.” So why would Trump lie? The answer is simple: he wants to create a fear of immigrants and immigration by implying that they are a threat to American citizen’s safety. If his manipulation works then people will vote for him because he offers anti-immigration laws and projects like his infamous wall on the border between Mexico and the United States of America.
For decades, immigration has been a problem for the United States. Due to the people traveling from their native lands to the United States seeking a better life for themselves, and more primarily for the family that has come with them. Immigration is the action of settling into a country of which one is not native. Despite the many legal immigrants not every immigrant enters the country with legal documents and most of these illegal immigrants are poor and uneducated. Some undocumented immigrants commit crimes such as drug smuggling, or terrorism.
Politicians including Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham, and Scott Walker, Chris Christie, and Rand Paul. Most Republicans are against wording but aren’t about repealing it, but they believe people are taking advantage of it. The Republicans argument against birthright citizenship, “that birthright citizenship needs to be changed to stem illegal immigration. They argue that having children become U.S. citizens is a motivating factor for immigrants to come into the country illegally and that when the child reaches adulthood he or she can try to sponsor their parents for citizenship.”(Kopan), in other words, they are creating “anchor babies”(Navarrette). This issue has only irritated Republicans, Democrats mindset is the more the minority, the better for us.
The truth is the second amendment or the right to bear arms is still in place to protect us from being at the mercy of a dictator. In fact Piers Morgan stated “The second Merrell3 amendment isn’t there for duck hunting, it’s there to protect us from tyrannical government and street thugs, 1776 will commence again if you try to take away our firearms. (Gun control 2016)” Some Americans may also take freedom of religion for granted. Only having one religion would be simple, but what Americans do not realize is that countries that do only have one religion normally have a dictator. When speaking poorly about Muhammad Muslims face punishments resulting in death.
