If it wasn’t for them, the U.S economy wouldn’t be where it stands now. In recent discussions of whether immigrants should be deported, there has been sides where immigration would be good for our country and others disagree. Some believe that immigrants should be allowed to stay in our country, because they believe our economy wouldn’t be good without them and many businesses rely on immigrants working for them. On the other hand, the other side believe that immigrants are overpopulating the U.S and don’t have the money to support all of these immigrants (education/jobs.) Immigrants should be allowed to remain in the country because many families would be separated, they are already accustomed to the American society, and they contribute to the economy.
Which kept both sisters in America for an extended period of time. Meanwhile after living in America for over 30 years, the laws on the benefits of immigrants are implemented only to the new immigrants. Mira feels betrayed by her country. She believes the laws should benefit immigrants who been in
Although relatives were in the United States and earning money that did not mean that everything on “the other side” was going well, many family members were earning money, yet they were not sending/earning enough to provide for those who had stayed behind in Mexico. In order to have a better life children began to work and push themselves as much as needed in order to prove to others that they were exemplary and without equal. Many children entered the United States with hopes to find their relatives and work; however, the children were soon “captured” by the Works Progress Administration and “the organization argued that much more should be done to place these children in agricultural labor camps because they had demonstrated a remarkable ability to exceed employer expectations without making any demands” (189). The decision made by the Works Progress Administration had a negative effect, many children started to get exploited by middle-class individuals, children had to work without complaining but most importantly they were seen as “cheerful and illegal” (190). Children were seen as cheerful when in reality they were having a hard time coping with the situation; however, the children portrayed cheerfulness in order to seem exceptional while
Individuals who migrate to America, all share one common goal: a better life. In most cases, many immigrants come to this country in hopes for a better life for themselves or even families, which is exactly what Jurgis aimed to accomplish. Situations like Jurgis’ and other many immigrants who come to this country for a better life or the “American Dream” will do anything possible to work hard enough to get to that point. This is vital to recognize and understand in the social work profession because many of these individuals will find themselves coming to this country with the same mindset, possibly unable to find legal jobs which will lead them to seek illegal jobs with low pay, gruesome conditions, and illegal acts if they are not made aware and pushed into the right path. For a social worker, being able to guide those who need the knowledge and oppurtunnites to achieve the goals they wish to accomplish to the right path is what makes the central issue of Capitalism important so no individual will ever find themselves enslaved to trying to provide for their family or themselves financially or living in a “Jungle” like society where individuals will compete for a chance to work, regardless of the pay in order to achieve the “American
Puerto Ricans also fear they will lose culture completely, but Hawaii has a different culture, and they never lost it. Puerto Rico could become a state and still have its celebrations and culture. Although Puerto Rico would become the poorest state due to their financial status, they could still benefit the United States and themselves. Puerto Ricans gained citizenship in 1917 to be drafted for World War I, meaning the United States was able to gather more soldiers and gain a stronger military due to Puerto Ricans becoming citizens. Puerto Ricans can join the U.S. army just like any other American citizen.
Words that are often used to describe America are freedom and hope, yet there is such a huge controversy about immigrants coming to the United States to be free and have a better life. America gives immigrants a sense of hope and endless opportunities for a better life. The U.S. provides more jobs and more money to help immigrants survive and provide for their families. America also gives immigrants freedom from the bad issues of their countries that cause them to leave and search for a new beginning in the United States. Immigrants should be supported in the United States ultimately because of what the U.S.A means and stands
But as a matter of fact it’s so important, it may even affect everyday life around us. There has been a lot of controversy whether immigrants should stay in the United States or not. Illegal Immigrants should be allowed to stay, because they’re helpful to the U.S., and not many immigrants commit crimes like people believe, and most hope for a better life. Illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay, as they are helpful to our
Cheap labor meant more profit so business owners were more than happy about this news However they had to be treated properly: free housing, insurance, free transportation, and meals. Nonetheless, many people feared that they will overtake all the labor and competition becoming very fierce. When this program came to an end, many U.S. born mexicans were repatriated along with their families who were part of the Bracero. This seems unfair because they didn 't get treated well after what they have done for U.S. For
For decades, immigration has been a problem for the United States. Due to the people traveling from their native lands to the United States seeking a better life for themselves, and more primarily for the family that has come with them. Immigration is the action of settling into a country of which one is not native. Despite the many legal immigrants not every immigrant enters the country with legal documents and most of these illegal immigrants are poor and uneducated.

Immigrants are paying all this money to get there papers and some people are just wasting money and it’s going down the drain . In conclusion , I’m lucky to be living in America and getting free education and not being judged by the way i look or talk or my race or religion . I hope that this stays the way it is forever but i hope things get better for people who don’t have the same
There is an estimate of 8.7 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, according to the Center for immigration studies. They come here because they want a better life for their family, but their presence has caused many problems for the citizens of this country. Moreover, immigration has always been an important issue in the story of the United States. Many undocumented immigrants are able to enter the country illegally. These people along with other citizens say that undocumented immigrants are good for the country as they help the economy by working for a minimum wage in jobs that many refuse to do.
Coming from a migrant family, it has truly shaped me who I am today. Through the significant struggles I have witness from my parents I have learned and adapted that if you want something you have to work for it, as much as they did in order to fully provide my siblings and myself with the basic necessities. Having immigrant parents who were only eligible to work in the agriculture business was a bit overwhelming. Since they only spoke one language, Spanish, there wasn’t many job opportunities for them. Getting paid minimum wage and be living as a low income family we were faced with many struggles.
Not only is the National Football League (NFL) the most popular sports league in America, it also draws in the highest revenue of any sporting league in the United States. Los Angeles holds the second largest GDP of any city in the United States, and the NFL runs on a model of revenue sharing among its owners and franchises. Therefore, the lack of an NFL franchise in the city of Los Angeles is certainly a glaring omission, as the opportunity to host an NFL team in Los Angeles would benefit the entire league economically. That being said, the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders present viable alternatives to the St. Louis Rams in placing an NFL team in Los Angeles. The lack of an NFL franchise in one of the America’s greatest cities is
The Hmong refugees settled into America in a manner where they are supportive of their own ethnicity and they built a community of Hmong in America to help other Hmong settle into America (Vang 2010:57). Contrary to how the Hmong settled into America, Mario settled away from people of his ethnicity and family and so adapting to the new surroundings was difficult at first but with little ties to his culture from Bolivia it made it easier for him to assimilate into a new culture. Living in a diverse community has many benefits when it comes to fitting in. With so
Not only does the immigrant community contribute work to the country they also contribute art, food, music, dance etc. Americans learn and adapt to some of their cultures yet choose to persecute them and discriminate them for being from another part of the world. If immigrants were all sent back to their home country there would be no art, because most art portraits and sculptures come from famous artist on the other side of the country. The music industry would be different since it would of never evolved into what it is today, by getting a little bit of everything in the world. Everyone likes food there’s a variety of foods but if immigrants weren’t around there wouldn’t be these delicious cuisines people pay top dollar for.
