Cheap labor with little tax between the countries, US manufacturers are drawn to the south to mass produce products to be sold around the world, sparking the debate of job loss in America. Life in Maquiladoras is brutal and the working conditions are atrocious and, simply put, a violation of Human rights. Numerous workers have given reports telling of the chemicals that they breath in, the unsafe machinery that is being used and the disregard for the Mexico’s labor laws. Heavily subsidized corn entered the Mexican market place at cheaper production costs lowering the consumption price. This put thousands of Mexican farmers out of work, which in turn contributed to the mass migration farmers looking for work.
During the American Industrialization Period, poverty had swept through Mexico, leading to numerous rebellion, which resulted in Mexican Revolution. Because of the Mexican Revolution in 1910-1920, Mexicans immigrated to America in pursuance of economical support, and to escape revolution. Mexican migrated to America as sojourners, but they were a major part of labor during the Industrialization Period. Since, the Mexican were excellent and most efficient miners, Mexican companies contracted Mexican in America as miner or railroad workers. Similarly to Chinese, Japanese, and other immigrant group, Mexicans were also considered inferior compared to White.
However, Americans are misinterpreting holding resentment toward those immigrants because they believe that they are taking their jobs opportunities away. Is this really happening? No, what Americans do not realize is that Mexicans are the only ones who works on the fills that no one wants to work on because usually is paid less. At the beginning of the poem, Baca says “O Yes? Do they come on horses / with rifles, and say, / Ese gringo, gimme your job?” (lines 1-3).
Mexicans complain about the ignorance of the gringos, they (the Americans) the vast majority believe that cinco de Mayo is Mexico 's independence day; the people in general congratulates paisanos Benito Juárez, asks a Crown with "lime" and says bonachonamente:-Feeliz C 'inco di Maaaahio! Senior American politicians and Mexican Masonic Lodges also celebrate year after year this day, but their reasons are less innocent. The Mexican people believes that a battle occurred in 146 years ago, on May 5, 1862, hundreds of indigenous zacapoaxtlas commanded by General Ignacio Zaragoza defeated the invasive and imperial troops from France who came to invade Mexico ostensibly to collect a debt from you. This is the official version and all Mexican shouts it and celebrate it as if it had happened yesterday and as if some his grandfather would have been defender of the homeland. The sad reality: in 1841, Mexico was stripped of the territories of Texas, in 1848 loses more than half of its territory (the States of California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah and part of Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming).
For more detailed examples, Rio Olympic is assessed as the worst Olympic because of these reasons. Rio cannot maintain and control the social system, and the debt of the Rio became around 100 billion dollars after Olympic. Better example to compare with Pyeonchang would be the case of Sochi, Russia. Sochi is a beautiful small town in Russia with nice weather. However, this city is now sitting on huge debts from the Olympic.
Mexico’s drug cartels are the worst they have been in years, and all the problems stem from a lack of proper decision making from the government at every level . Since Colombia was taken away from the drug scene, Mexico’s cartels have made up for the slack and then some. Subsequently, cartels in Mexico also began to flourish at a time when Mexico was in the process of instituting a new form of government. Not only is Mexico trying to work out the kinks of their new democracy, but the cartels are pushing more drugs than ever before; Mexico needs to address this problem. To make matters worse, a number of Mexican officials are corrupt, unaccountable, or distrusted by the people.
As a result of this hindrance, court-appointed lawyers for these defendants are not compensated adequately, which results in a lack of competent lawyers due to low enticement. Additionally, poverty-stricken citizens are at a major disadvantage due to the presence of payoffs and bribes throughout their trial. These citizens on trial have spent most of their lives in unfortunate situations, going days on end without food, water, or shelter; all basic needs for survival. Because of this arduous upbringing, it’s likely that justice will not take a high priority because of the money involved. The gap between the wealthy and the impoverished will continue to grow, increasing the amount of people who will be at a disadvantage in our justice system due to their lack of wealth.
In recent years it has gotten worse as states move to adopt stricter immigration laws and policies (Sue & Sue,2013). For example, in states such as Arizona they have adopted a law that make it illegal for immigrants to be in the state without proper paperwork (2013). Law’s such as these combined with the discrimination and language barriers cause a great deal of stress to the hispanic population. Many in the Latino population are fearful of reaching out for government or medical assistance for fear of being deported, even if they are legal citizens (2013). This means that the there are members of the Latino population who may be suffering from mental illness such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD and which are all common side effects after being subjected to discrimination and racism ,(Chávez, & French, 2007 ) are not getting the services they need
Many social problems have occurred due to urbanization. Their are not enough jobs in the city to keep everyone employed. Poverty has increased, causing the once thriving Mexico City to pick up the pieces. In Upper middle class areas, many people don’t have to worry about having water, paying for school, or finding a job. 94% of houses in the upper class are made with better materials compared to many houses in Mexico City only being made with 78% of good materials.
Illegal immigration has been around ever since borders were created to divide the world. The reasons for illegal immigration, stretch from escaping unstable governments, seeking job opportunities, and making money. In the United States, most of the current illegal immigration comes from Mexico and Latin America because of poverty and the lack of jobs (Wilson, Armstrong). The United States provides many cheap labor positions in construction and farming where business owners are looking for immediate workers that will get the job done. Unfortunately, illegal immigrants cost the U.S. government around $11.4 billion to $20.2 billion each year due to the use of America’s goods without paying all their taxes (Amadeo).
Non-Mexicans have strongly been influenced by the media, entertainment, and news. These negative perceptions have contributed to prejudices and discrimination of the Mexican people. Most people who have these negative perceptions of the individuals in this culture have little to no direct exposure to the culture. If society has direct exposure to the culture, it would reveal a culture that is hardworking and grateful to be here in the United States. Mexicans are often working jobs that Americans believe they are too inferior to work.
Proponent’s blameworthiness the harm of jobs on illegal immigration, more specifically those who seek a better lifestyle doing tedious jobs that most Americans would not imagine doing. When I was younger I migrated in California picking grapes, tomatoes, clipping vines etc. those are a few examples of severe demanding physical jobs that immigrants perform. Yes they require precise knowledge of expertise, but rather a physical demand that your body will sacrifice from sun up to sun down. Why say that illegal immigrants are taking away our daily jobs?
Many immigrants in Latin America come from indigenous backgrounds; they don’t speak Spanish but their native dialects. I want the world to see and understand what these people have to deal with. First of all many of the illegal immigrants that come through Mexico have to suffer discrimination, starvation, and exctorion from the Mexican Mafia who despites the rest of Latin America. Immigrants from central and south America leave their countries and cross mexico in a train called “La Bestia” which translates to “The Beast”. This train never strops so there are records of many people who have lost an extremeity whil trying to get on the train.
As a Mexican American I was told that it will be hard for me to get into college. The stereotypes that I faced was that the only job that my race was good at is construction, roofing, and landscaping. I felt like this was not true and wanted to defeat this stereotype. I have learned a lot growing up in a big household. I am the oldest among all my siblings.
Presently there are U.S. citizens living in Mexico that must cross the border every day to receive their formal education. Since, they are not Mexican citizens like their parents or other family members they don’t qualify for public education in Mexico. Therefore, Mexican-Americans must make the descent of crossing the border to receive an education. However, this legal migration for education has many problems. First off, different border regions have different rules and regulations when it comes to the migration of students Las Paloma’s-Columbus, Mexicali-Calexico, and El Paso- Juarez deal with the influx of their diverse student body in many different ways.
