America is said to have a melting pot of cultures brought together from different nationalities obtained from different individuals from across the world. However, as a result of increasing crimes, violence and terrorism, people believe that all blacks are thieves or all Muslims are terrorists. The US does have a problem with xenophobia because they fear that immigrants want to take away their jobs, they discriminate against Muslim and they seek to place more restrictions on immigrants entering the country. Firstly, people fear that immigrants from other countries want to take
The thirteenth amendment in the Declaration of Independence ended slavery and the fourteenth Amendment ended slavery in essence. These legislations are set in place however racism is a reoccurring theme in America especially in recent months with President Trump in power. President Trump has a number of motions in place to prohibit individuals from certain races access into America. In situations similar to this it can be difficult for the state to ban racist advertisements when the president holds a huge amount of power. Trump has encouraged mainly his supporters to act out vocally and physically which is becoming increasingly concerning.
Donald Trump has been sweeping the nation in his efforts to win the Republican presidential nomination. When the media trains its lens on Trump, the country appears to be “roiled with across-the-board discontent” (Dionne). His public interactions have split the country into those who categorize themselves as the “silent majority” and those who react with complete dismay toward his radical propositions. But are Trump supporters really the “silent majority”, or are the voices of Conservatives “being amplified beyond all reason” (Dionne)? In E.J.
The large scale of immigration, both legal and illegal, has brought up issues such as national security and the U.S. economy. The U.S. Senate is struggling to find a viable solution; they can’t seem to come up with a plan on how to deal with immigration that appeases both sides of the political spectrum.
Many Republicans, including Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, have avoided taking a position on the flag.” (Henderson) Citizens of America are taking sides on the Battle flag controversy and that plays a major part in how the voters will choose their leaders in the upcoming elections. Not only are politicians trying to avoid taking a side on the controversy but business are also being pressured by the American citizens to take the away from their
We having established our political view into these countries means they can be more like America. Even though I get criticized on many of the things I do as president of the United States, I still feel that my voicing over these country that we as American’s have, should make up for me being “weak” as the president. Even opinions from the press has dimmed me in a bad light as the president. Since the spanish foreign policy I have also dealt with the repercussions, but I feel as if you can’t please everybody in America as the president. People even said I was a weak and mediocre president because I did not want America to go to war, but of course things end up diffrently than as planned.
Politicians are arguably among the most influential figures of the nation. This year 's election unknowingly precipitated an ongoing discussion on race. GOP front-runner Donald Trump sparks controversy for his anti-Islam and anti-illegal immigration sentiments. These rally speeches with stereotypical undertones tend to promote violence in his rallies. An article by Lucia Graves recalls numerous accounts of violence in which black protestors or immigration activists were punched, kicked, or attacked by other Trump supporters.
The U.S. is currently combatting terrorists who seek to spread their radical beliefs in what is called the “War on Terror”. To help America combat these terrorists, recently elected president Donald Trump has issued a set of immigration restrictions, and while there have been many protest against these restrictions, the thing I find most shocking is the fact that the Japanese American community has not publicly stated their opposition against these restrictions. We, as a community, must realize that there are parallels found from these immigration restrictions to the internment camps the U.S. government forced our grandparents and great- grandparents into. In order to stop America from making the same mistake again, our Japanese American community has to step out of the shadows and show Americans who support these restrictions that this is wrong. The U.S. is supposed to represent the freedom and safe haven from fear of persecution, as this is what the first
Islamophobia Today, America is faced with many issues whether it be fighting with your best friend to Trump. There are things that are problems that a lot of people aren’t even aware of. Or even worse, they don’t think it’s a big deal because they support in one way or another. An incident that caused many problems that is still brought up years and years later is 9/11. There’s more to it than just the attack.
The current Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have voters and spectators questioning whether either candidate is fit to be the next President of the United States of America. On one hand you have Donald Trump, who has proven time and time again that he is a threat not only to himself but to the people around him. The Republican candidate 's controversial campaign has been marked by bursts of false and outrageous allegations, personal insults, sexist remarks and outright bigotry.

On the other hand you have, Hillary Clinton who may not be the ideal candidate, but is certainly the better choice.
That the acceptance of misinformation has some other external cause. This state of mind is a relatively recent development, that is especial prevalent in younger generations. This is due to an abundant of conservative politicians that were strongly opposed to Barack Obama due to his race and liberal views. Since his presidency lasted for such an extended period, the false information spread about Obama, like his citizenship being forged, became common and accepted in the minds of people that held a distaste for him. This is shown in Weeks research, Emotions, Partisanship, and Misperceptions: How Anger and Anxiety Moderate the Effect of Partisan Bias on Susceptibility to Political Misinformation, that in 2013, 64% of Republicans said it was “probably true” that Obama was hiding information about his birth place, and that 58% of Republicans expressed anger at Obama (713).
Immigration Policy The immigration policy in the United States is widely debated topic especially with the upcoming Presidential elections. This issue of the immigration policy can be viewed from several different angles and perspectives.. Some believe that we Americans should accept all immigrants into our country with open arms, while there are others who believe that the United States must completely isolate themselves and close their doors from those looking to immigrate into our country. I believe that there are a lot of changes needed to be done in order to solve the problems that come with immigration. The idea of building a wall between the border of the United States and Mexico and the idea of deporting the approximate 12 million
Ship ‘um back For many years, the topic of illegal immigration has been a part of every presidential platform. The problem at hand is that illegal immigrants have an effect on our nation. The United States of America has many surnames, the land of the free, the home of the brave, and the melting pot, are only a few. When thinking of debates over immigration reform, one generally pictures two opposite sides of the political spectrum battling it out over what they think should happen. Everyone has a different idea on what to do about illegal immigration, and neither party is willing to compromise enough to form an effective plan of action.
Donald Trump and the Media From the article “What’s In Donald Trump’s Immigration Plan and How It Could Affect the GOP”, is heavily based on what Donald Trump’s plans to stop all immigrants entering to the United States. The author of the article, Asma Khalid, proclaim that the GOP and Donald Trump are separate in minds of this situation. Overall in every media that involves the presidential election with Donald Trump; it always a force debate on immigration. Are there any other topics that media show besides the immigration problem? The politician Donald Trump is gaining more popularity by arguing the journalists and the democrat politicians about releasing immigrants into the United States without a permit or a visa.
