Rough Draft: Military Conscription in the United States Throughout the history of the United States, military drafts have failed to produce their desired effect. Mandatory military service inherently causes an increased military presence, especially within a country containing extensive involvement with foreign affairs. Controversy has historically surrounded military drafts in the United States as often, the wealthy have been successful in avoiding service. Because the issues surrounding a military draft outweigh the pros, the concept of military conscription has become unpopular and the United State 's military has proven itself effective with the current system based on voluntary service. Therefore, the United States should not adopt military conscription because not only would it provoke an increased number of military conflicts and inequality, but also would be unpopular and unnecessary.
Immigration Migration is a very controversial topic in the UK. Migration is when somebody moves to a new area or country for work or better living conditions. Many people born in the UK don’t agree with immigrants coming over from other countries to live here as they think they come and steal all our money and jobs, and live in our houses leaving lots of our population homeless. I disagree with this and I think immigrants should be allowed to come to the UK and they should be supported in any decision they make when it comes to moving. It is obviously a difficult choice for them to make and moving to a completely different country with a culture they are not used to will be weird and scary.
Immigrants are motivated to leave because of political issues, family re-unification, escaping conflict or natural disaster. Usually from countries with war or corruption to bigger countries like the USA and England or regions such as USA and Europe. In the old days, people left their country for a bigger country to find jobs. Like Norway, they did not have enough jobs for the people, so the Norwegians left the country and often to USA. Many families travel together, but a few let the man of the house leave, and then they would wait for him to come back with money.
Whether by choice, by necessity, or both, they are also Americans." Americans have been constantly fed fear from policymakers and the media. Especially with this current election, we have been told that immigration "present a significant threat to national security and public safety", yet, the census data shows men ages 18-49, immigrants were one-half to one-fifth as likely to be incarcerated as those born in the United States. The media also only portrays the negatives of immigration, instilling fear to the viewer while demoralizing innocent immigrants. If the media portrays the good, showing the humanization of immigrants, viewers wouldn't be as instilled with fear.
America now must come to the realization that immigration as a whole is no longer a positive influence on American culture. The plaque on the Statue of Liberty for immigrants to read as they reach Ellis Island reads as: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” ("How tall is the Statue of Liberty") while these are promising, hopeful words for immigrants to place hope and faith in, they are very often taken for granted. It affects the country’s population, society, and economy. The highly publicized issue of this generation’s immigrants has begun on a much larger negative aspect of the friendly, easy-going immigration laws of the United States. Many negative viewpoints have been conveyed to the forefront of the predominant press.
Many people do not like their position in this world. For instance, they are vexed from working at a low paying job or pursuing a higher education. And, when they hear of a draft into the military, they go for it eventually regretting their choice, attempting to dodge the draft, change their minds, but cannot do so because they are already in the war. In order to challenge this prevailing ideal, Tim O'Brien wrote The Things They Carried as a memoir of his experiences during the Vietnam war, and to proclaim the injustices of the government towards the soldiers. Therefore, O’Brien’s odyssey in the war not only impacted his life but for all the other veterans as well, challenging the underlying power of the government in America through the unfair orders that they gave the soldiers and the little help that they gave the soldiers with mental illness.
They came into a country that was giving them places to live that were not planned for them such as abandoned buildings, schools, airports. Countries had to improvise shelters and were running out of food to provide for them. The conditions some refugees were facing were unlivable. They were finding ways to make living in the EU horrible for refugees. Camps were built for refugees to be able to use while they were being processed, but these camps were in horrible conditions, it was like the states were trying to push them out.
But then to try to deport millions who have settled in America, whether it may be that they have lived there for years or for months, is completely wrong. Many of these illegal immigrants have settled there for years and have stared their new live in the US. By removing these people he might be separating families and splitting them up. In my opinion, to vote in a man who only thinks of himself and prioritizes himself first rather than the people is appalling. The role of a president is to be chief of state.
America “home of the free”, that the nation motto for people migrating there. Each year millions and millions of people migrated to America in hopes to find a better life. Either in hope of starting a new life, to run away from poverty, or just find a place of security for their family. Even though the intentions are good, society does not find beneficial. If looked at from a structural function theory, it hurts the nation as whole, due to imbalance and un-controllable amount of people into the nation.
Betts (2013) stated, the threat that environmental change, lack of food, and general mayhem force large numbers of people to flee countries that are unable or unwilling to ensure their human rights, as well as the situation in the states failed and fragile which makes possible the lack of human rights, so people make decision to move to another better place. Moreover, according to the political debate, migrants may fleeing from their countries because of the some reasons. For example, they may be choose to leave his or her homeland or countries to earn more money, to be with family members who also migrated, to settle down with their
