To me, being Hispanic is something which I’m immensely proud of. My heritage and the history of great Hispanics before me inspire me to do better and try to make a difference in the world. As a Hispanic, I know that we are some of the hardest working people in the world, we persevere even in the face of situations in which the odds are stacked against us. It’s this knowledge that drives me every day to make not only my parents proud, but to show the world that Hispanic people like me can make a difference for the better. When I was young my family could only afford to live in a small apartment infested with bugs which was our home for many years.
If I was to march it would be to help Mexican that live in America to let them work and to let them live like American citizens and not let them do stuff that American citizens can do just because there Mexicans. I think this is important because a lot of Mexicans come to America to give their children a better life but the parents don 't have good choices to work to provide food and stuff for their kids.
When NAFTA took place in Mexico, an estimated 1.43 million farmers lost their jobs. After NAFTA removed tariffs, maize and other types of grain were exported at a cheaper cost than their actual worth. As a result, Mexico highly imports American corn rather than buying from their own farmers. This cause the nation to reduce the “subsidies to farmers from 33.2% of total farm income in 1990 to 13.2% in 2001” (Amadeo, Kimberly, 6 Problems With NAFTA,
This journal is the longest one of my sources because the author goes extremely in depth to how illegal immigrants contribute in a positive way to the United States economy. He breaks up his journal into different sections such as, the Labor Market Impact of Illegal Immigration, Illegal Immigrants as Consumers, Fiscal Impact, etc. In some of these paragraphs he has sub paragraphs to go even more in detail to explain his points. He mentions important things such as taxes and public service cost. He uses many facts and statistics to back up his points and explain it all.
Illegitimate immigration is becoming one of the largest problems in today’s America, many believe that a border wall with Mexico would help this problem. In about 3 years ago it occurred that there were about 11.1 million illegal immigrants in America. Of those 84% of them came from Central America, Mexico, and Asia, the largest amount coming from Mexico with 59% of all illegal immigrants. Constructing a border wall to keep out illegal immigrants won't just cost billions of dollars, it would create a less diverse community, make America’s economy weak, and it would hurt the environment. All settlement incorporating illegal immigration that forms great diversity in the community.
Divided not By Choice “The U.S- Mexican border es una herida abierta where the Third World grates against the first and bleeds. And before a scab forms it hemorrhages again, the lifeblood of two worlds merging to for a third country- a border culture. Border are set up to define the places that are safe and unsafe, to distinguish us from them.” (Gloria Anzaldua/Borderlands La Frontera: The New Mestiza 2nd Edition (Page 25) Gloria Anzaldua wrote Borderlands La Frontera: The New Mestiza and was originally published in 1987. Even though this book was written long ago, this book is a great example of what most Mexican-Americans struggle with on a day-by-day basis especially to those that do not follow Mexican customs and traditions.
The American Dream is sought after by many people. Living the life of freedom and education is what many people are constantly fighting for. Children and families come to the United States in order to receive a better life and better opportunities. In 2012, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was established by Obama. DACA is an american immigration program designed to protect immigrant children throughout the United States.

Imagine what it is like to be seven years old moving to a country where you don’t know anyone, you don’t understand the language, and everything seems foreign. When I first arrived to the United States, I didn’t have friends due to my inability to speak English. It wasn’t an easy journey, but my determination to achieve the American Dream gave me strength to keep going. I decided to take English courses during my free time, and now I am a great writer who is fluent in both English and Spanish.
One of America’s most controversial issues today is the border between the United States and Mexico. The big part of the issue is due to illegal immigration, which is when foreigners enter the U.S. without an entry or an immigrant visa. President Trump says he has found a solution, otherwise known as the “border wall,” but this will not stop people from wanting a better life. Of course I get why he and others would want to continue the process obviously to keep us safe from terrorists and other dangers of the world, but, to every pro there is a con. Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped.
Globalization is a massive thing that affects every person on the planet in one way or another. This source raises the argument that globalization is a disease that harms people in more ways then it helps and needs to be stopped before it wipes out the human race. This raises a good point is some ways because globalization does harm humans in many way such as losing jobs due to outsourcing and the people who get the outsourced jobs are put into horrible working conditions and underpaid without benefits. But it also helps in some ways with trade and communication strengthening the relations of countries. I do agree with the source that globalization harms many people but not quite to the extent that the author goes to, I think that
Globalization is the process of international integration best exemplified by increased trades, increased inter-connectedness of nations and their financial sectors and large-scale international migration. The United States and Mexico have a long history of economic relations with many believing that migration to the United States from Mexico being due to poor economic development in Mexico. Gomberg-Munoz conjectures that the labor migration "is generated not by a lack of economic development, but by development itself-and by uneven development in particular" (27). Initially for much of the 20th century, marked by treaties like the Bracero Program in 1942, the U.S. very much encouraged the migration of labor from Mexico to the U.S. But with the Bracero Program, employers began to work around the program's costs of hiring by networking through their current Mexican workers, thus easily bringing in the worker's families and friends to work undocumented (31).
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.
Describe site location, demographics, and current use. The location of the site is the Stanton Bridge, which is an International border between Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Chihuahua and El Paso, Texas, U.S. (See Figure 1). The United States is one of the most popular borders for immigrant crossings in the world.
Our policies on illegal immigration can diminish the problem by enforcing immigration laws, revoking birthright autonomy, and demanding proof of citizenship when applying for social services. Immigration has become a major problem in this country and needs to be restricted. Our economic implications would be beneficial towards the U.S. economy. Without the crutch of illegal immigrants holding us back, our U.S. economy can prosper more than ever. Due to the current economic slowdown, labor demands had been reduced and has forced many out of work.
