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.
In Malcolm Gladwell’s “Million- Dollar Murray” he takes on the plight of chronic homelessness. He uses Murry Barr as an example of how much money is spent on those living in chronic homelessness. Murry Barr had the larges medical bill in the entire state of Nevada; “It cost us one million dollars not to do something about Murry.” Reported officer O’Bryan. The reason for this claimed is that it might be more cost affective to take the homeless off the street and give them a home. The author theorizes something called power law theory or distribution which means that not all homeless end up in chronic homelessness or that they will run up a million dollar medical bills.
We need to put an end to the deportation of undocumented immigrants with no criminal record. Undocumented immigrants are still being deported even if they have no criminal record and have lived in the U.S for over 10 years. Deportation is unfair to immigrants who have a clean record, it tears apart families, puts refugees in danger, and has many negative effects on our country. Some people might think that most illegal immigrants are going to cause trouble and need to be deported in order to decrease criminal activity. This is not true because of the 11 million unlawful immigrants in the United States, about one million have committed some sort of criminal offense.
The Veterans are the ones most affected by being homeless.Veterans deserve and should have the fist right over government benefits before illegal aliens. “On the whole, veteran homelessness has decreased 47% since 2010 and the number of unsheltered veterans has been slashed by more than half, according to a report released by the obama Administration”. These veterans deserve their rights to have government housing and welfare because they have served our country and these illegal have done nothing but still somehow get in line first. “Often the, housing was kind of earned”.Quigley, Aidan “what 's Behind the decline in homeless among us veterans.” These veterans are working hard to get their housing while these illegal immigrants are just coming coming here and getting all the welfare and help they need. But no one wants to help the veterans why?
A good number of the locals in the United States have a link to other countries and moved to the United States to find better life in the past fifteen decades. Issues linked to the impact of immigration on the domestic workers, though, have led to the passage of several policies meant to bar immigration. Movements, more specifically, have argued for the use of excessively restrictive immigration policies on the basis that immigration reduces the salary of the locals and employment opportunities. There are no major restriction on immigration to get into the United States until the Quota Law was passed in 1921. The law placed quotas on the number of immigrants, with regard to the country they come from.
Around 10 million adults alone in the United States as of 2017 consider themselves to be part of the LGBT community, these are 10 million adults who can be discriminated against, weather this is access to something as important as medical care or something as simple as a wedding cake for their wedding they can be refused access to this. In 1993 The Religious Freedom Restoration Act was passed in order to provide “stronger laws and enforcement for exercising religion” and so that it could play a valid part in our foreign policy; yet it is hardly used in our foreign policy and in some cases can cause more problems than solutions. This has become a national debate, even still today because of the obvious outcomes it could have regarding gay-marriage.
There is just under a year until the presidential election, yet candidates are well into their campaigns, sinking large chunks of money into advertising and traveling state to state. Banning hateful TV ads would also make sense because they are often funded by Super PACs as I have already mentioned. It seems that most other counties only have limits on spending, because there is no point of limiting how much a candidate can get if he or she is only allowed to spend a certain amount of
In Til Gurung’s student speech, he talks about Refugee Transitions. It is a program to help new refugees adapt to their new lives, and he says “Refugee Transitions offers classes and tutoring in its place for people…” (Gurung). This program is helping many refugees adjust to life in a different country. Ha also had a similar situation, when her tutor Mrs. Washington, and Ha says “She comes close and hugs me…” (Lai 201). Ha is getting better because she has Mrs. Washington to help her and her family, and this is helping her to regain her confidence.
“In the adult basic education program, learners develop their reading, writing and math skills and work towards personal goals in area such as employment, parenting, health, or increased independence” (“Programs” 1).It offers great opportunity for learners who is English as a second language to develop and integrate more fully into America society by improving their English literacy and civics skills. “Foreign-born adults improve their ability to practice in American life by developing their English language skills and their understanding of American life, government, history, and culture” (“Program”1).Moreover, the program provides career development services to adults who .are seeking to gain employment, retain their current employment or advance in their careers. Said Mary lynch, a human service coordinator. “The adult participants can receive individualized and tailored training services and support to help prepare them to take the GED exam, Virginia placement Test, and/ or enter into a college or industry specific training program.” Literacy provides Heal classes for learners to increase their knowledge healthcare Topics, medical terminology, and standard processes and practice. “New knowledge and increase familiarity with the healthcare system, learners gain the confidence they need to take control of their health,” she
A person’s rights shouldn’t be determined by where they were born, but rather by what they can do; what that person is capable to do contribute to that nation. Many don’t know this, but a significant amount of immigrants fought in the US civil war. Should the people who help our ancestors get your freedom, not deserve to have their children educated? “It is estimated that 11.1 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2011. Unauthorized immigration peaked at 12.0 million in 2007 1 million of those 12.0 million were children under the age of 18 as of now it has increased; it is estimated about half (46%) of the immigrants are underage”(Pew Research Center).
There were 11.5 million unauthorized immigrants in the United States as of 2011. They come and have american families, they improve the economy, and this country is a country of immigrants so why not let them stay here. One important reason that undocumented residents should be allowed a pathway to citizenship is that many of them have American families, and tearing them apart and splitting them up would cause serious trauma. According to Senator Charles Shumer, writing in an upfront magazine in 2016, trying to deport undocumented residents rather than providing them with a legal
When ObamaCare was passed, Americans were assured that it would provide insurance for 32 million people who did not have any coverage. Four years later, ObamaCare has covered far fewer new people, between 10% and 20% of what was promised, and about half of those were through an expansion of Medicaid—a burden that will eventually bankrupt the states—rather than through ObamaCare’s insurance exchanges. Most of the people buying insurance through the exchanges are those who were kicked out of their previous health insurance plans by new regulations. It turns out that if we liked our health insurance, Americans could not keep it. For some, this will be bad.
Those who are more liberal, are voting for modifying or abolishing this law, mainly because it is as Trump said, a “magnet for immigration”. Many republicans believe that expectant mothers are illegally traveling into the United States to deliver their baby in hopes of a better future. One out of every twelve newborns, or about 340,000 babies per year, are children of illegal immigrants (http://www.pewhispanic.org/, August 11, 2010). Another motive to abolish birthright citizenship is because in the amount of money it would save taxpayers and the benefits that would come with that.. First, there would be a decreased amount of health care costs that would be absorbed, and second, social programs would have more money in their budget to use
For a majority of enrollees with lower incomes, the federal subsidies make the premiums more affordable. For those even closer to the poverty line, they can receive additional subsidies that reduce the deductibles even more. But for many middle class families that earn an average income of $97,000 for a family of four, the health coverage premiums and deductibles have sky-rocketed (Luhby). This is causing a huge amount of Americans opting to stay uninsured, rather than spend thousands a year. According to a Kaiser study, 46% of uninsured adults tried to get coverage but did not because it was too expensive (Luhby, 2017).
Most of these programs require proof of legal immigration status and under the 1996 welfare law, and even legal immigrants cannot receive these benefits until they have been in the United States for more than five years. Something else that the people of the United States believe is that undocumented immigrants take away American jobs. But to be quite frank the U.S. economy needs
