Immigrants provide this country with an immeasurable number of benefits, and limiting immigration will only leave the United States at a disadvantage to other countries. Immigration laws have also been very controversial about their morality and their actions can outrageously impact families lives forever. The future of immigration laws is unknown, but prohibiting immigration is not the answer the United States needs. Immigrants have been moving into the US for hundreds of
Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200). Most wars in America are not well planned which is a bigger problem because more men will die. To start, a war, men are needed to fight and the poor have no other option. The rich can pay their way out by the power and money that has always been in their favor. It is a significant problem
According to the Journalist and writer Nicholas Kristof, “Inequality causes problems by creating fissures in societies, leaving those at the bottom feeling marginalized or disenfranchised” (Nicolas). While some people believe that inequality is not an obstacle preventing them from achieve the American dream others think inequality makes the average citizen work hard to achieve it. In the article “The American Dream: Dead, Alive or on Hold”, Brandon King states that the American dream is still alive regardless of any hardships. It has only changed its definition. The American dream is no longer about being a part of the rich.
Only nine out of twenty seven delegates met. They created a document called “The Declaration of Rights and Grievances”. This document was known to be the first action that the colonists took to stand up to the British. This document stated, “As subjects of the British king, had the same rights as British subjects living in Britain. Only the colonial assemblies had a right to tax the colonies.” The Stamp Act caused the arrangement of the Sons of Liberty.
Puerto Rico, a commonwealth of the US, was acquired in the Spanish-American war and the Jones Act of 1917 made the inhabitants American citizens. On the island they do not pay taxes and cannot receive all the benefits and assistance of the US government. On the mainland however they are not distinguished from other US citizens and whether on the mainland or the island all are subject to a potential military draft. After America acquired Arizona, New Mexico, California, Colorado, Utah, Kansas, Oklahoma and Wyoming in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, the Mexicans living in these territories were given a month to decide if they would choose to be US citizens or remain Mexican citizens living under US rule. Even the Mexicans that decided to become US citizens were put off their land and denied citizenship other rights that were promised by the treaty.
America “home of the free”, that the nation motto for people migrating there. Each year millions and millions of people migrated to America in hopes to find a better life. Either in hope of starting a new life, to run away from poverty, or just find a place of security for their family. Even though the intentions are good, society does not find beneficial. If looked at from a structural function theory, it hurts the nation as whole, due to imbalance and un-controllable amount of people into the nation.
In some people’s minds, they automatically assume yes, but in reality, it’s a no, immigrants tend to perform labor, and do minimal jobs that Americans don’t, and won't do, so they mistake that as immigrants taking ‘Americans job’, but it’s actually a missed opportunity. One reason for people not taking the jobs is because of the hours, the next reason is the pay might not satisfy a legal immigrant, and people born in America, another reason is it wouldn’t be able to support a regular American family, but they will be able to support an illegal immigrant. The downside is that the policymakers disagreement is the weak labor since the spread immigrants flow has made a dramatic change seeing that the H-B has issued down by twenty- five percent in 2010. The last reasoning is American people want to have a debate on if immigration is stealing American jobs, but according to evidence immigrants actually increases job opportunity and incomes of Americans. This is wise because even George G. Borjas’s long-run estimates suggest that immigrants raise the wages of people with high school diplomas.”- Newsweek, DON’T BLAME IMMIGRANTS FOR DRIVING DOWN WAGES.
The number of refugees has doubled since 1992 from 25 million to 40.3 million. Refugees are people who are forced to leave their home because of war, persecution, or natural disaster. Jordan, Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, and Iran have a combined 9,379,400 refugees. Although many individuals believe that refugees are not beneficial to society, people should accept others from different walks of life because this country was founded on immigrants, they make communities safer, and refugee law are extremely successful when resettled. While a number of people think that there should be stricter laws on allowing immigration, people often forget that the United States of America is based on immigrant families.
As americans it is not only right to help each other, it is necessary for the betterment of the country. It is inept for the government to watch their country struggle, while spending massive amount of money for funding on frivolous things like sororities and fraternities Many cities in America are filled with people who earn less than what the standard of living is in the country .They experience many hardships and often struggle because of the issues within their community. This is the biggest issue with wealth inequality. It hinders the ability of americans to take risks and investments that could be very beneficial to them in the future, while also limiting the success of the less fortunate by supplying them with limited resources . Wealth inequality inevitably has a major role in america's current poverty level, which in turn could possibly lead to crime.
In Puerto Rico’s first days as an American colony, Congress didn’t want to give its occupants the impression that they were held equal to those of the commonwealth, as affirmed by Font-Guzman (2017), professor of law and conflict studies, and director of the Negotiation and Conflict Resolution Program at Creighton University Graduate School. Thus, Senator Foraker granted them their own government and instead of adopting Puerto Ricans as their own, they were given Puerto Rican citizenship. If they wished to become U.S. citizens they had to endure the naturalization process, the same as foreign immigrants. From that year on, hundreds of bills about Puerto Rico’s citizenship status were debated, periodically changing the extent of the application of human
