Colindres, 33, fled from Guatemala more than a decade ago. He and his American wife, Samantha, can 't quite figure out how to tell their young children that in less than a month he may no longer greet them on the steps of their New Fairfield home. For some immigrants, coming to the United States was their only option. Where they come from, their political leader may persecute them if they don’t follow a certain religion. Local Iraqi Christians fear that they may be forcibly returned to Iraq to face persecution or death.
Again, this playbook is the way it is partly due to the actions of George Bush in the Middle East. Obama argues, “Where America is directly threatened, the playbook works. But the playbook can also be a trap that can lead to bad decisions. In the midst of an international challenge like Syria, you get judged harshly if you don’t follow the playbook, even if there are good reasons why it does not apply.” Obama mentioned the ongoing civil war in Syria and how the “Washington Playbook” applies there. He argues that the US is not directly threatened by the war in Syria and therefore, we should stay out as long as it stays that way.
We as the US have thousands and thousands of great soldiers. Wouldn’t you think you would get caught coming in. In California, Florida, New Jersey, Texas, New York, and Illinois have had 60% of unauthorized immigrants coming in from 2009 to 2012. That is a lot of immigrants coming in. Here is the thing, so people do not like immigrants.
This is not due to lack of room in this country, for every year, the US lets in an average of 1,500,000 immigrants and of that sizable number, less than one percent are the people who need it the most. “The House passed a bill requiring the FBI director, the secretary of homeland security and the director of national intelligence to all certify that each individual refugee poses no security risk to the U.S. In the name of increased security, the House is aiming to slow Syrian refugee intake to a crawl.” (Bremmer, Times) Syrian refugees are discriminated against during the application process, by having additional and far more intensive checks, before being considered. If this step is being taken for just these people, shouldn’t the same be done for all applicants? In a Gallup poll conducted, 63 percent of Americans said that immigration is a “good thing” for the country.
It has specific requirements that many undocumented immigrants cannot meet. The most difficult requirement for undocumented immigrants to bypass to be considered for citizenship is that one must be a legal permanent resident (green card holder) for at least five years. There are only three ways to become a legal permanent resident: be admitted as a refugee, be sponsored by an eligible employer, or be sponsored by a close family member such as one’s parents or children. Undocumented immigrants who have been in the United States since they were children cannot be admitted as refugees, many of their employers do not offer sponsorships, nor do many have close family members that can sponsor them. In the case that they can be sponsored by an employer or family member, undocumented immigrants can wait up to a decade or two before their application is even considered.
Slaughterhouse Five does not hold back with the gory imagery, and that is partly the reason why it has been disputed. The fact of the matter is that, that kind of imagery is necessary so that the reader can get some kind of sense, even if it is not first hand knowledge of some of the things that happen in war. The kind of things that the government and most people will not tell you about because it does not fit their agenda and it would make war seem less like the kind of adventure they like to portray it as. In the beginning of the book, Billy Pilgrim, the main character believed that to be truth, that war was
The nation can only protect itself to a certain extent but when it comes to terrorist they cannot protect themselves from such people so it is the duty of National Security to step in and to do so they use certain procedures like torture to gain information from the terrorists. If National Security did not use torture to retrieve some of the information it has, then many citizens would be in danger because of timed bombing, assassinations and planned attacks. Not using torture only makes it difficult for National Security to attain information because nobody would be afraid of the treatment they would receive from withholding important information and not only making it difficult but the process of attaining the information without using torture would take longer and for all we know there could be a ticking bomb. Torture is an advanced interrogation technique and people need to understand this. The world is developing and techniques will always change and become better just like technology does.
According to a report by the CDC over 35,000 people were killed by guns in 2015. ( National Vital Statistics Reports) Over the years gun control has been a controversial topic about how to control, restrict, and ban firearms in the United States, this affects several people who fall in the middle of the gun control spectrum. Due to news and media sources who try to make headlines, people think that guns are all bad and that it would be better to get rid of them. In truth, a gun is a deadly weapon that needs little strength and experience to use; when first introduced to war, it became the deadliest weapon ever as anyone could use it. Today there are many ways for people to obtain a gun legally and illegally; it all comes down to how much money
Two of the candidates I questioned believe that yes, the United States of America has swung too far away from its heritage of liberty in its quest to up the security of our country. They believe this because with all the dangerous things happening in the world like terrorists attacks, school shootings, child abductions, hate crimes, etc. have caused this nation to focus on protecting the states and have lost its sight on our heritage of liberty. The last candidate I spoke with disagreed and said she didn’t believe our nation was swinging too far away from its heritage of liberty over our nations’
Those examples can be fixed with time, what can not be fixed with time is people 's emotional state and the reputation our country has built for themselves. If hate speech is banned from the U.S constitution people over time will adjust and it will allow for others affected to finally breath, live a normal life, and no longer be pressured by community members hateful remarks. Hate speech should no longer be protected by the U.S constitution because hate speech in itself promotes hateful actions and expressions, the negative effects hate speech has on people is widespread and laws around the world have proven effective to limit internet-based hate speech. The banning of hate speech is extremely important for the future of our country and the people living long after this current generation passes. The more people promote hate speech the further our country gets from being a peaceful, and loveable place to live and grow up.
You are a citizen of Aleppo, a city in war-ravaged Syria. This is what it would be like if you did not live in a very privileged America, you would constantly fear for your life and never feel safe. This is the opposite of the America I believe in. The America I believe in is one where its citizens are shielded from war and do not fear attack, and in which
There has been much debate over the idea of the American colonies separating and becoming independent from Great Britain. The colonies as a whole agree with the idea that it would be much more advantageous to become our own independent country and be able to freely make decisions for the colonies welfare. That is why it has come to my better judgment to agree with the colonies decision to become independent from the British. I believe in this decision because it is very important for a county’s people to have protection. Protection is something the American colonies do not have at the moment and I do not see Great Britain providing this protection for them.
I believe to a certain extent that there should be a limit of the amount of people that are allowing into the country. People who enter the country are taking resources from people who were already born her. But if a person that enters the country and doesn’t get caught before making it here, they should not have to leave. If our fault for not caught them. I am very conflicted about not allowing people into the country, because they could be in a situation of that is unimaginable, requiring our assistance.
But there is also the problem that if the NSA become completely transparent, the terrorist and other people the NSA is trying to catch, will have more knowledge as how to not get caught, which would just make the NSA ineffective. Basically the people have to decide whether they want a government that catches terrorists or one that always protects their freedoms. Most parts of the world would rather have a government that catches terrorists and keeps them safe, but unlike these countries, America (excuse my American exceptionalism) has an amendment for their constitution that bans unreasonable search and seizures. The NSA is in a difficult position because it must weigh how transparent they can be to appease the population with how much secrecy they need to function
