Amanda Peterson Beadle wrote an article, Top 10 Reasons Why The U.S. Needs Comprehensive Immigration Reform, listing reason what this policy reform could do for us. ‘’More than 5,100 children whose parents are undocumented immigrants are in the U.S. foster care system, according to a 2011 report, because their parents have either been detained by immigration officials or deported and unable to reunite with their children.’’(Beadle). These are people who come here to give their families a better chance, but instead they are walking into a trap. Who are we to rip families apart?
In America, our great nation is facing an immigration problem. As of 2014 there was an estimate of twelve million illegal citizens in the United States (Cairco.org). There is an average of 700,000 illegal citizens who enter every year (Cairco.org). Immigration is important to the prosperity of our country. However, the government needs to take the proper steps to ensure that each immigrant enters legally.
The government should not have taken anything from them they had to work to get those things because they still had to work for them. The problem with what the government is they also deported who were immigrants, but had citizenships. These people had to go through a long and hard process to get their citizenships, so they should not just take them away and deport them. Just because they are from the same area as the terrorists
Epicurus states that humans cannot be unjust to animals because to be unjust we would need to have a contract with the animals and because they do not speak we can’t do that. However even if we do not have a moral contract we should still look at the way we treat animals as many ways are too cruel and we don’t blink an eye but we need to. Epicurus says that justice is a contract or an agreement to neither harm nor be harmed. Humans invent justice by making contracts with each other. The purpose of the agreement is to make other’s happy the laws must be just, make others happy and be useful.
Immigration Immigration has always been a hot topic during a presidential election year, and this year is no different. Legal immigrants are often celebrated, while unauthorized immigrants are often blamed for many things that are wrong with the country. Still, millions of immigrants from around the world come to the U.S. each year seeking to take advantage of everything this country has to offer. Historical Immigration Trends The Migration Policy Institute has researched U.S. immigration trends of foreign-born people with no U.S. citizenship at birth dating back to 1850. Immigrants as a percentage of the U.S. population have fluctuated over the decades, but in 1850, immigrants represented 10 percent of the total population.
You 're going to go to school and get a job and become Americans” (Will). According to Open Society Foundations, "People come to the United States for the promise of freedom and opportunity. But the current immigration system in the United States is broken: Families are separated, immigrant workers are exploited, people die trying to cross the border, and there is rampant discrimination against immigrants". Most immigrants claim they move to America for the job opportunities all over the nation. "There are currently 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.
There is a problem that is very important to me and millions of illegal Immigrants across the country. The issue is the length and the expense it takes for an illegal immigrant to fix their legal statuses. There is a certain type of Visa which is called the U-Visa which is a type of Visa only people who have either been physically or mentally hurt by someone in the United States. This is important because if you detain an immigrant it cost money to keep him/her incarcerated, also if they can work legally then they can pay taxes making more money for the government. There are many families that have been separated because of deportation, in September of 2014 there were 5,100 children in foster care and it is predicted to rise by 15,000 in the
America is filled with millions of immigrants that came to this country….either legal or illegal. As for those illegal immigrants, how are we going to deport over 12 million illegal immigrants? They are “stealing” millions of jobs from naturally born Americans but we never think about working harder to keep those jobs. Immigrants that move to this country of America, illegal or legal, helps this country’s economy stabilize with all the work they are doing to help build houses, trimming lawns in neighborhoods, plumbing, electricity….all the difficult jobs that help us, but Politicians continue to try and reform immigration instead of working with it. Donald Trump in the election has suggested a wall for the southern border of America as a promise
There is a certain irony to debating whether more immigration is good or bad for America, because unless you are a Native American, you are the product of immigrants. However, the majority of us can never know the feeling of being so completely helpless and hopeless that we give up everything familiar to start over in a foreign land. This requires tremendous strength. America welcomes 675,000 permanent, legal immigrants every year (http://www.immigrationpolicy.org/just-facts/how-united-states-immigration-system-works-fact-sheet), and if immigration stopped there, I think federal and state systems would not have the strain that put everyone on edge. However, when immigration is discussed, it is never about those who hold doctorates, who invest
But now many people take this heritage for granted. They may know their origins trace back to immigration, but they won’t realize that this is how current immigrants build their families. On the web page Ellis Island Closes, published by the history channel, they bring up how deeply influenced America’s roots are by immigration, they state that, “Today, an estimated 40 percent of all Americans can trace back their roots through Ellis Island” (Ellis Island Closes). America wouldn’t be where it is today without immigration. Whenever new laws are passed to make immigration into America harder, or making it harder to become a citizen, America is preventing itself from growing in the
