This issue has only irritated Republicans, Democrats mindset is the more the minority, the better for us. People want to come to the United States for a better life, any way possible. The issue stems from illegal immigrant or illegal aliens instead of legal aliens. There was a CBS News poll on illegal immigration and the 14th Amendment, which seems the population is divided in half. Then, fifty-nine percent of Democrats believe it should stay while fifty-four percent of Republicans believe it should be changed.
Surprisingly, 5.3 million of these children are living with unauthorized parents. And these children usually get a high school or college degree, but can’t get a job because of the scare of being deported. “ More than half the undocumented immigrant population has a high school diploma or higher.” Wrote Center for American Progress. V. Counterargument/Rebuttal Even though I think this action is a great idea and plan for our country some people would say otherwise. These people are under the impression that not all immigrants who are allowed to stay, still won’t be able to
They wouldn’t do anything to get deported, not after they’ve dreamt of coming to America for a while. According to the article “Ten Myths About Immigration” on the website Tolerance.org, “Statistics show that immigrants are less likely to commit serious crimes or be behind bars than native-born people are, and high rates of immigration are associated with lower rates of violent crime and property crime.” With the evidence provided, most wouldn’t risk doing a serious or minor crime just to end back inside the runaway country. In fact, they have the same effects on America as native-born people do, economically the most. The same article also states, “Immigrants who are undocumented pay taxes every time they buy taxable goods such as gas, clothes or new appliances (depending on where they reside).” The money that they earned or got from a family member is given back to the economy as soon as they buy the necessities they need for their new life. If they’re starting over, they’re going to want to keep a clean slate in fear of going back to their original
Ellis Island, opening in 1892, was a federal immigration station that helped restrict immigration. It ran for more than sixty years and granted legal immigrant status for millions of Americans. Ellis Island came out of the demand from the American people to prevent Southern and Eastern Europeans from inhabiting the United States and all of the negative consequences of their residency. The influx of immigrants caused agitation among the American native-born. Between 1880 and 1920, America had more than twenty million immigrants, and many of them seized the jobs of native born Americans since they were willing to work for less.
Capital Punishment: An American Controversy The death penalty is an issue that has the United States quite divided. While there are many supporters of it, there are many who oppose to the ideal of putting a criminal to death. As of right now, there are thirty-three states in which the death penalty is legal and seventeen states that have abolished it. Although the opponents of capital punishment believe this to be immoral and non-productive, advocates of capital punishment have proven it costs the government less as opposed to life imprisonment without parole and the death penalty gives closure to the victim 's families who have suffered so much. The amount of people serving life sentences without parole is continue to flourish as the years pass.
As (Charles Schumer, Upfront, 2016)has made clear “Without reform our immigration laws threaten to tear apart families” What Senator Schumer is trying to say here is that when immigrants are deported some of their family might be deported but one or two can stay since they have citizenship. In some cases this might be a child that the US keeps in and the family does not see each other again. Of course it would be possible to disagree with the view that deporting would tear families apart and instead argue that not deporting encourages immigrants to break more laws since they already broke one. However this argument is flawed because it is an opinion and also irrelevant to this argument. This is because this argument is about deportation tears apart families who have legal family members.
The American government claims that they do not have enough money to support the ever increasing population of America, as well as immigrants and refugees, but that does not excuse sending innocent people back to war-torn countries in which they are persecuted, and-in extreme cases- even killed. Refugees travel to America out of a necessity, a desire to escape
Many who disagree with the drinking age believe that when someone can pay taxes or enlist in the military they should be able to make their own decisions about drinking. On the contrary the opposing side believes that the legal drinking age of 21 causes less alcohol related deaths. The pro-18 group believes a legal drinking age of 18 could be safer than 21 because as of
Stated in the article “10 Advantages and Disadvantages of Gun Control”, “ Funds could even be set aside so that licensing and safety classes are low-cost or free.” This shows the court could waste a lot of money funding gun classes when they could be funding something more important like schools or homes for homeless people.Along with this fact why should mentally unstable citizens own a gun in the first place. Mentally unstable people should not have the right to own a firearm of any kind. With gun control it could lower the rate of suicide with firearms.According to the
Since child workers do not affect the economic stability of China such as unemployment or migrant workers moving in to urban cities, this cause for their special needs to be overlooked by either the government or special organizations. In fact, the social workers or authorities that go in search of these children in factories have only done more harm. Employers have them hidden inside houses with terrible conditions and terrible pay, lower than the lowest working standards. It is recommended that China and its government stop relying so much on their legal enforcement. They should find a way on making a more reliable and flexible way of fighting against the abuse of child labor.
