The United States tried to protect Haitian Immigrants but has ultimately failed. Immigration policies are only impactful if the system is willing to protect them. In 2010, Haiti was struck by an earthquake that killed thousands and displaced millions of people, and many of them came to the United States seeking asylum. Due to the increase of Haitian immigrants, Congress instituted the Temporary Protected Status (TPS). While Temporary Protected Status has been granted to groups from El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Honduras, the government continues to fail them by ignoring their importance.

Today, there is major concern and debate as to how we should appease North Korea. However, ten years ago, our thoughts about the country were very different than they are today. In 2007, David Wallechinsky, a journalist for PARADE, spent five days in the country to determine whether or not we should feel threatened by North Korea. Although he does point out some unsettling details about the country, he determines that North
According to Connie Marshner, who is the Vice-President for Development of the American Family Business Institute, while there were over 225,000 parents that had taken steps to adopt in 2006, only a small percentage had been able to take in a child, because the regulations and long processes involved kept them from doing so (Marshner 2006). This issue has an enormous effect on the foster care system, because the strict requirements for parents make it extremely difficult for children to leave the foster care system, and, thus, many foster children have to live in crowded foster homes instead of a permanent living situation. Marshner’s ideas are similar to Conna Craig’s, in the sense that the government’s actions, whether they are structuring funds or creating regulations, have a substantial effect on the number of foster children in the system. Nevertheless, there are still more unique ways that the federal government has a role in regulating the
Homeless veterans and how they live on the streets and how they got homeless. Also how our government is trying to get rid of so many homeless Veterans. Society needs to invest in homeless veterans problem. Homelessness “Is not having a place to live.” When you are homeless you do not have any money and most likely you don 't have a lot of food which you probably already know that. The Veterans are the ones most affected by being homeless.Veterans deserve and should have the fist right over government benefits before illegal aliens.
In Invisible Men, Becky Pettit introduces the theory that many Americans are seemingly “invisible” due to the fact that most national surveys, such as the Current Population Survey do not include incarcerated persons which lead to skewed statistics that are misrepresentative of the United States population. Pettit argues that the exclusion of inmates from national surveys creates discrepancies in United States economic, political, and social conditions. Further, Pettit argues that mass incarceration has hidden racial inequalities for many years. Throughout Invisible Men, Pettit develops her argument by presenting numerous examples that show how the rising incarceration rate has lead to the invisibility of African-American men in our current society. The Current Population Survey only accounts for people who reside in households which leaves out a significant portion of the American public.
In the novel “Out of this Furnace,” Bell suggests that most immigrants came to America seeking a better life, but faced the hard truth of inhuman labor (23). With the lack of education, Kracha couldn 't speak English, therefore, Kracha faced the lack of communication, also because the lack of education Bell suggests immigrants made no effort in practicing their freedom and sets Kracha as an example (66). But lack of education wasn’t the only thing that impeded immigrants to vote, in a discussion with Mike, Kracha makes a comparison between the emperors and the millionaires, “they run the country to suit themselves, and don 't think they 're going to let you interfere every few years with your miserable vote.” (67).In other words, Kracha voiced his opinion on the real results of the voting, Kracha insists that big millionaires and banks, pressure workers into voting for a certain runner, only to benefit
Native Americans were not prepared to live in the style they were forced to resort to. From the earliest starting point of time, they lived as a group and relied on the different qualities and capacities of every tribe part to survive and develop. White pilgrims would have been excited to be given 160 sections of land of land, yet the assignment amounted to only sorrow and trouble for most Native Americans. A large portion of them, not able to cultivate, sold their allocation to white neighbors. The individuals who made a push to figure out how to cultivate frequently fizzled in light of the fact that they had no formal preparing and no cash or credit to purchase the hardware important to run a homestead.
It has become a common situation, “ I've never known any dead man killed in a war. Killed jumping off buildings, yes,” (Bradbury, 91). Suicide ties into the bigger problem that because of all the distractions they aren’t able to take a minute to actually find themselves and see that they are
On average, 12,000 US citizens get murdered through homocides alone yearly. Not only is this number alarming, but the availability of guns in the United States is dangerous as well. When inmates from several prisons were asked where they obtained guns, they had many mixed answers that can be distressing to the safety of citizens. Overall, the survey showed that 56% of inmates paid for their guns (legally or ilegally), 15% claimed that the gun was a gift, 8% had a trade deal for the gun and 5% claimed that they had stolen the gun. Only 8% of America's 124,000 legal gun dealers have sold guns that have participated in crimes.
During the colonial era, the boundaries of the English colony were drawn to serve commercial interests, largely without regard for the territorial claims of the indigenous peoples. Nigeria thus became a forced marriage which did not receive the approval of the couples involved. As a result, about 350 ethnic groups comprise the population of Nigeria, and the country’s unity has been consistently under siege. Several attempts at secession have threatened national unity since the origination of Nigeria, the Biafra War being the last large-scale attempt of secessionist movements. Sadly, thus far, it is very disturbing that a majority of Nigerians have become slaves to their ethnic origins, instead of exploiting these diversities towards national
