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.
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
More than 300 buildings were burned down, and nearly one billion dollars worth in property damage. The riots were started because people were outraged that the police officers were not prosecuted for killing Rodney King. The people only wanted justice for Rodney King, all of this could have been prevented if the justice system did its job and cops were not brutalizing innocent American
It’s said that we should not criminalize the undocumented immigrants. The Migration Policy Institute has estimated that 820,000 of the 11 million unauthorized have been convicted of a crime. About 300,000, of the 11 million undocumented, have committed felonies. Compared to the proportion of felons in the overall population, the ratio is only a half (3 percent) (Nazgol Ghandnoosh 2017). Though the undocumented immigrants may not be the criminal themselves, it still arouses serious social disorder through forming intricate environment.
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.
To fully answer the question, the US should have full control over who comes in and out of the US and know the true current status. We need to know actually how many illegal immigrants are in the US. At best guess, there is roughly 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants in the US presently and 5.1% of our labor forces are illegal immigrants. There are too many illegal immigrants and they will take American citizens’ jobs and housing areas resulting in a better advantage in life than a US citizen that has not violated any laws. The illegal immigrants are also not paying any taxes or into social security.
More than 80 percent of these migrant women detained were found to have a credible threat to their safety if they were returned home. Yet, nearly 80 percent of these cases are ending with DHS [Department of Homeland Security] ordering these same families deported back to the very dangerous conditions they fled. Disturbingly, it has been reported that as many as 83 Central American immigrants recently denied asylum were murdered within months of their return…I urge you to immediately end these raids and not deport families back to countries where a death sentence awaits. We cannot continue to employ inhumane tactics involving rounding up and deporting tens of thousands of immigrant families to address a crisis that requires compassion." ProCon.org.
The death penalty should be illegal in every state because it puts innocent people at risk, does not have any effect on crime rates, and life imprisonment is cheaper than the death penalty. The death penalty has been and is still used for 410 years since it has been introduced by the Europeans that migrated to America in its early stages.
It seem population density is to deter crime but that is not truly true because it seem that high density it offer a perfect oppuorunity for property crime . Property crime is about 1/3 out of all crimes that occur. Property crimes has include the follow crimes thefts, larceny, burglary, robbery,sort lifting, arson and vandalism. The statistic has shown that property crime have fell major about 32 percent in a ten year period. Property crime rate , “of 135 victimizations per 1,000 households in 2008 was lower than the rate of 147 per 1,000 households in 2007” and it was 248 attempted or completed property crimes per 1,000U.S.
According to Marianne van den Bree (2009) 58% of respondents to research she carried out claimed to have been abused during their childhood. This research suggests that to those that have been subjected to emotional, sexual and physical abuse are more likely to end up homeless. Many ex-service personnel find it hard to adjust to civilian life and some leave the forces with psychological disorders, such as post traumatic stress disorder. This makes it very difficult for them to find a job and maintain a household. Approximately 1200 people leaving the forces every year experience homelessness (Royal British Legion, ND) it is claimed that many of these people are becoming homeless soon after leaving the forces is due to psychological disorders.
