Some immigrants start businesses and make jobs available for Americans. Immigrants come here and fill the jobs that Americans do not what to do or willing to do. Many immigrants are skilled and smart when they come here to the United States. Immigrants make it easier for us to communicate with other countries. Due to immigrants we have business contracts with other countries.
First generation immigrants sacrifice their adulthood in search of a better life for their family and for future generations to come. My father came from Peru to support his family. He was the first person in his family to come to America. He works in road construction from morning until night so that my family is supported. The desire to repay both of my parents is the belief that guides my life.
The land of the free and the home of the brave, America is the dream for people everywhere. A place to make a name for yourself, where the unthinkable is achievable. Immigrants from all over the world travel days, weeks, and months to be greeted by Lady Liberty and create a better life for themselves. In particular, immigrants from Europe save every penny they have to afford the trip to America. They leave their family, friends, and the comfort of their home to explore the unknown and diversity of America.
How would you feel if you and your family were denied the opportunity to a better life or had to wait years for one? The immigrants goal is to strive for a better future for themselves and their family. Coming here will help them achieve that goal. You may be thinking why cant they have a good future where they live? In some cases, the country they live in could be poor, not have many schools, is not safe, etc.
Mexican immigrants are those who originate from Mexico and are living in the United States, whether they are here as documented citizens or not. There are plenty of immense differences between documented and undocumented Mexican immigrants as well as new sets of struggles for each, though they share many of the same plights. Some immigrants come to the United States for a better life and chance at the “American Dream” while others are brought here as children, some come to be with family, some are here as documented citizens and others are not. There is an estimated number of 6.2 million undocumented immigrants from Mexico residing in the United States (Yee, Davis, and Patel, 2017). Being an undocumented immigrant leads to many struggles, one
But either way undocumented immigrants risk it all just so their family can move forward in life. They live in fear but they never give up . Many people have a bad image of undocumented immigrants , but they are actually really hard workers . They work hard for what they want , and they get the things they have by their own sweat . Just imagine leaving everything behind to go to a better place to start a new life.
Immigrants come to the U.S. to have freedom and self- sufficiency. According to the article, “ Most people born in the United States don 't appreciate the gifts we’ve been given by being born in the U.S.” The immigrants that come to the United States to have things that they wouldn 't have so they appreciate it more. According to the article, “We have a wide array of educational choices; we have freedom of religion, freedom to say what we want, the ability to vote, a free pass to keep our political leaders in line.” What they are trying to explain to us is we have more rights than anybody in other countries and sometimes we take that for granted because other immigrants would of used the freedom that they would of had gratefully.
I believe the difficult journey for immigrants and all they had to do to start over in a new country was worth the hardships they faced. This is because after all their hard work, things slowly but surely, started to get better. The hardest part was getting started. Although many immigrants were leaving for a better life or trying to escape political injustice, these men, women, and children were leaving their old life forever. In “Shutting Out the Sky”, Leonard Covello remembered before leaving Italy, “The gold you find in America will not be in the streets…
Immigrants add talent to the workforce, their diverse skills contribute to manufacturing and industrial jobs. Immigrants are expanding the workforce creating many jobs and opportunities for others, they create new populations of people that all have a similar need. For every 1,000 immigrants 46 manufacturing jobs are created (McDaniel, para 3). Hard working immigrants contribute 14.7% to the total wage of the current economic output (Costa, para 6). While expanding the workforce, they are also benefiting the economy, current US citizens need to realize that immigrants are not taking jobs of current citizens, they are filling necessary jobs that most citizens do not want for themselves, without them many things would not get accomplished, hurting the
“High school graduation rate of 89.5 percent” (Kirp). In Union City the student’s social status doesn’t dictate their success leading to more opportunities for these students to grasp and take advantage of. These kids can start their own tradition of graduating college. Another great example would be the story of Antonio Alvarez, who came into America as an immigrant. Since his status was undocumented he was “limited to low wage jobs”.
Immigrants both documented and undocumented have been able to promote diversity throughout the entirety of the United States. Such a thing may open people’s minds and become more receptive and open to new cultures and experiences. Additionally, one must not forget about the contributions immigrants bring to the U.S. economy. Borjas (1995) states that with the presence of immigrant workers both documented and undocumented in the labor market, makes the U.S. economy an estimated 11 percent or 1.6 trillion dollars increase per year. Hanson (2007) further notes that immigrant’s aid in jobs that native-born Americans may not be able to fulfill.
These people are clearly workers. They have money to rent the lodging, but the amount of money they make does not appear to be equal to the value they add to the world around them. This is an example of the other side of the world like in New York: A Documentary Film. This is the world that sits in the shadows of the production and growth of that time. Their poverty becomes an untold story that changes the perception of what the American dream is (Ric
I became interested in this topic because both my parents came from Mexico to Los Angeles in 1975. They both wanted to have better economic opportunities in the US and wanted to achieve the “American Dream.” As my father and mother both settled in Los Angeles, both acquired jobs working
2015). My claim is to provide an explanation on how poverty affects American students and their education. One out of every 18th person in the U.S. still lives under the poverty line (Bishwa A. 2012). A big reason why many Americans are dropping down to the lower class is due to divorce, and getting laid off, as factories upgrade their competition, and stock prices by relocating jobs overseas. So how does low income affect their children's?
is because immigrant workers are willing to do most of the jobs Americans do not want to do. Most of these jobs are manual labor like building houses, construction or other things that fall under that category. I think that people who have made it here and done the whole process legally deserve to be here but the ones who are here illegally need to go back to where they came from. It makes it possible for people to be able to improve their living conditions because if they have their own company or business they can hire immigrants and they will work for much cheaper than the normal American. This also hurts a lot of Americans because they get fired when immigrants are willing to work for wages way lower than what these people are normally used to.
