Have you an american citizen thought about all the hard work undocumented immigrants have to do just to become an american citizen? Undocumented immigrants are humans just like us they have the right to chase after their dreams so why not let them. About 11million undocumented immigrants are here in the U.S most of them are here to find a good job and give there kids/family the opportunities they deserve to become someone in life. What all Undocumented immigrants want is for their families not to be torn apart, keep the american tradition and help the economy get better. One important reason that Immigrants should get a path to citizenship is that they help keep the American tradition.
I profoundly agree with Chavez as she talks about, “Repealing the birthright citizenship is a terrible idea” (596). If we as Americans take the joy and pride of people that come to this land for freedom and a new life, what make us any better than Great Britain when we first started to build this country. We settle here for a change of mind and also a change of heart. By that being the case, us trying to take away the birthright citizenship to those who wasn’t born on this soil is absolutely wrong.
Every country has it own rule on immigration. I personal think that illegal immigrant should be given amnesty so that government official could know who they are and also keep and good eye on them. Many illegal immigrants fee their own country to come to U.S for a better life and some come to be comment criminal activates and for those reason I don’t think they should get a driver’s license but I do think they should serve in the military to became a citizen in the united
Coming from A Mexican family, I along with my siblings are the first generation to have been born in the United States. As a child, I lived a great life. My only worries were of missing the paleteros, ice cream man, or being frustrated because nobody in my neighborhood wanted to buy my mud pies, but never was it that I would fear the fact that my family could be taken away. It wasn’t until I was older and heard more comments about there being a thing as “illegal” immigrants when I began to worry for my parents, however, at the same time I began to realize all the suffering and challenges they go through and have gone through to give my siblings and I the best life we can get. Immigrants are an important part of America, yet they don’t get the awareness they deserve.
It is clear, then, that the U.S. is largely responsible for the current migration patterns. Still, there are those who oppose the legalization of DREAM Act for many valid but biased reasons. One claim is that the Act rewards illegal behavior and essentially grants amnesty. However, the potential beneficiaries of the Act received their immigration status from their parents while they were very young, their immigration being involuntary, so they should be able to contribute back to the only country they know.
Why Children of Illegal Immigrants Should Be Granted Citizenship On July 9, 1868, Congress passed the fourteenth Amendment, allowing “all persons born or naturalized in the United States” to become citizens. This concept of birthright citizenship applies to this day, even for children born to illegal immigrant parents. These children may not know any other home besides the United States, and the fourteenth amendment guarantees their right of citizenship. Some people, however, do not think that these children deserve to be granted their citizenship.
Every minority group in the united states should have the same equal rights as a white person. Sadly in America today not everyone can live a happy life some have to deal with hatred towards them every day because of something they can 't change. Each day it’s getting worse, more people are starting to judge you on what you do,what you look like, what you sound like, and things you can 't help, this is happening more teenagers now. I would think that I am “living like an American” because I try not
Immigrants should be allowed to run for president because, the law was originally put in to protect the country from Dukes, this country was built off immigrants, and the founding fathers wanted this country to be equal and this statement of “natural born” is not equal. Firstly, America when it first Declared independence they were scared because they thought that British Dukes and Princes were going to buy there way into presidency. Now it is the 21st and we are allies with france and no one is rich
Do we consider them true Citizens? To be considered a United States citizen a person shall go thorough naturalization process or gain citizenship based on the natural born citizen right that has been mentioned in the 14th amendment of U.S. constitution. The right that guarantees U.S. citizenship to anyone that has been born on U.S. soil. Today all across the United States the question is that if birthright citizenship to anyone who has born in U.S. soil and within U.S. borders is right or not?
Free Speech on Campus by Nat Hentoff is an interesting article in which Hentoff tries to prove that free speech is not on all college campuses. In the essay Hentoff uses examples such as fliers, professors, and guest speakers to get his point across. Hentoff says, “how are they going to learn to identify and cope with them” (para. 10), this to tell us about the protection of students from bad ideas. These attempts to protect are taking away from their first amendment. Hentoff feels that we should allow them to choose what ideas are bad.
The 14th Amendment states “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” (Cornell University). This amendment signed on July 9, 1868, has had controversy surrounding it from several politicians, biggest being Donald Trump. They believe that citizens who were born on United States soil but have parents that are not from the country shouldn’t be citizens; otherwise stop birthright citizenship to children of aliens. The 14th Amendment is a reason the population has grown.
Millions of people from all over the world immigrate into the United States in order to fulfill their dreams and earn the title of American. Many people come to America for their own reasons, mostly for better way of life and more freedom of expression. The accepted school of thought is if one is born in the United States or naturalized through a set process, they are an American. Being an American is more than being a legalized citizen of the country, but rather, recognizing the vision and ideas of a better society that surrounds the belief of liberty, equality, and democracy. Despite the diversity between ethnic appearance and language that prospers in America today, what makes a true American is the shared belief of freedom, equality, and
America has always been known as one of the greatest or the greatest country in the world, but to say that America still provides access to the American dream is not as true as they say. There are many people that would disagree with this including Emma Lazarus. There are those who would agree with this, the fact that not everyone has access to the American dream such as E.E. Cummings. There are many views on whether immigrants are welcome or not. My opinion says they are mainly not welcome, with a few exceptions.
Birth tourism, is defined as people coming to U.S.A to give birth and “leave.” The Civil Rights Act of 1866, says “All persons born in the United States, and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States.” The fourth teen amendment, should not be reinterpreted, even, if the politicians think that illegal immigrants would benefit from having a baby to become citizen, politicians are wrong. Most illegal immigrants, have their children to have a better life, for example, education and security. To obtain citizenship is hard enough already, it should just be made less difficult..
