Do you know what it’s like to want to start fresh? To pretend like what happened yesterday could be forgotten tomorrow? That is what the 11 million immigrants who currently live in America wanted, and what those who haven’t made it here yet only dream of. In order to give everyone the same opportunities to start a new life, we first need to be accepting of every person, documented or not. Undocumented residents should get a path to citizenship because families will be torn apart without it, because immigrants help improve the economy, and because this is a country of immigrants.
Being the first generation Asian-Hispanic American, I recognize the importance of being the first in my family in gaining an education. Throughout my youth, I seen my parents work in difficult jobs just to keep food on the table. Especially my mother was an immigrant, arriving to this country at age 16 and her highest education is just a middle school diploma. She struggles in finding jobs due to lack of education, thus she works in jobs that nobody wants such as factories, fields and even traveling across the country as a migrant worker. She would accept any job, no matter how hard it is and how low they pay because she only wants the best for me. My father is also an immigrant, arriving all the way from Sri Lanka at age 22 with his best friend. They came here to escape hardship in their country in order to experience the American dream. He worked hard all his life just like my mother, holding a physical demanding job at a shipyard for over 20 years. While they are now divorce but they still both mutually putting me as the first in their priority. They make sure that I have my basic needs met and also keeping me happy and content with life. Seeing them sacrifice everything for me since the day I was born, I want to reassure her that I will not live a difficult life in poverty and the only way to get out of poverty is through a college education.
Undocumented children are given the right to school. In Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it states that education is a human right. (crossing the borders peer) In the year of 1982, this right was opened up to children without legal status in the United States. Denying these rights was deemed unconstitutional; education was opened up to illegal immigrant children.
Should we give illegal immigrants drivers licenses? Would that make the roads safer? Will it divide us? There is a debate going on whether to give illegal immigrant's driver's licenses. Like most debates there are two sides, weather give them one or to not. Today we are supporting the idea of giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. Using this essay we will try to get you to agree with what I have to say.
According to the Pew Research Center, 47 percent of undocumented Latino immigrants have less than a high school education. It is difficult for them, nowadays, to find a good job without having a complete education, because most of the high quality jobs are hiring people with high education rather than hiring someone with a low education. Moreover, people with a higher education tend to earn more than the ones who are less-educated (Greenstone & Looney, 2012). This shows the importance of having a complete education. In addition, something interesting that the United States Department of Education has towards the undocumented immigrants is that they have not denied education to the undocumented (May, 2014). This is very important because if low-educated undocumented immigrants want to find a good and stable job in the future, they can get their education first, and then find the job they want. Thus, they will be fulfilling their goals and realizing their dreams of helping their families economically in their origin
Every year illegal immigrants come into our country and with them they bring their children. Roughly a million children are brought here yearly as their parents seek better lives for their families. That’s where the United States struggles to enforce laws and kick them out because they’re young and most likely had no say in whether or not to enter our country. I sympathize for the kids no doubt, but the fact that they have entered the country illegally is unacceptable; for according to the rule of law, no person is above the law nor below it. According to the law, it is ILLEGAL to enter the United States without going through the process of naturalization. This is why I believe that illegal immigrants, whether man, woman, or child should be deported back to the country from which they came.
The United States is a nation of immigrants. In both colossal and small ways, immigrants have contributed to American culture, to its economic and physical growth, political power, and reputation of freedom and opportunity to the world. However, debates about illegal immigration have become more heated and contentious as some have argued that the 14th amendment should only grant citizenship to those children who have at least one legal immigrant parent. I, on the other hand, do not believe that the 14th amendment be interpreted in such a way that only the children of legal immigrants be granted citizenship due to multiple reasons.
People leave their countries and come to the United States to become citizens and find work to make a life for themselves. Granting them citizenship and legal status helps avoid losing their homes and being forced to go back where they came from. Immigration is a natural right, and if people want to come to the U.S. and start a life here, give them the opportunity to do so. Treating immigrants unfair and calling them “Illegal aliens” is offensive, causing racism to stir up. They are human beings trying to find a line of work and make a living for themselves. The letting immigrants stay can bring benefits to the economy, influence good values, and motivate others to chase after the American Dream.
The United States today is credited with many different achievements, such as being one of the most successful countries in the world. Some of these accomplishments include conquering problems one by one with durable work ethic, and having a daring reputation of being righteously independent. But when one lifts up
The more educated people are, the better their chances at achieving the American Dream, and integration is essential in creating equal opportunities for all children within public school systems. People with an education have a larger income, have a better chance of earning the respect of fellow citizens, and are more likely to get jobs. Knowledge is power, and many young people living in the Projects are intelligent and full of submerged potential, but they live in a place where it is an achievement just to graduate from high school. They have lost the hope that was alive and thriving during the life of their grandparents, when Martin Luther King was a beacon of hope. The children in the projects might have low expectations for their
Do you think that illegal immigrants should have a path to citizenship? I think that they should. They don 't harm the U.S they actually improve it. Nearly 14 million immigrants entered the United States from 2000 to 2010, and over one million persons were naturalized as U.S. citizens in 2008. 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.
In 2014, there was a child migrant crisis with 77,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America. Fleeing from drug violence, poverty and gangs. With a large majority of them are under 13. The best solution to support these undocumented child migrants already in the U.S is to

Have you ever thought that this country, the United States of America is secured? Sorry to burst your bubble, but it never was, due to illegal immigrants coming from another country without a valid pass. Illegal Immigrant should not be allowed in the United States. There are many reasons why Illegal Immigrants should not be allowed, firstly Illegal Immigrants take jobs from Americans and Legal Immigrants. The next reason is because Illegal Immigrants cause more crimes to be committed. The final reason is because they insignificantly affect the economic state of the United States.
“Illegal immigration continues to be a major problem in the United States. We have people wanting to come here legally and we should not be rewarding people who have come here illegally,” said John Barrasso. The United States Government should not allow immigrants into America because they are having negative effects on our country. Some negative effects are citizens competing with illegals for jobs, immigrants expecting favors, and Americans not getting to work hard for their money.
