*As all this was going on, my grandma was still teaching away here. * Well, a few years went by, and not only did the two sisters move up into new grades, my Unlce Greg came to Burdick school, looked upon as a Pee-Wee-Herman by his fellow older sisters. A year later Justin Seefeldt, the youngest of the group, was finally going to be enrolled into school, and you guessed it, that school had been Burdick.

She was given the tasks of learning on her own and doing things considered more mature, such as taking care of herself and paying bills, something that one normally is not tasked with until they have grown up. Not only did she mature in life skills during her childhood, but she also developed a change in racial views, thanks to the many people she met as a result of her family’s actions towards her. All of these events that had a major impact on Ellen as a person, happened in her childhood, and they all shaped her for the rest of her life. This demonstrates how the earliest years of life are really the most influential, because the people that one is surrounded by when they are still developing personal views and beliefs, have the most impact on
For example Annie's feet hang off the bed inferring that she's had the same bed since childhood, which in a way isn't that abnormal but the fact that she outgrew it and a new one wasn't bought tells me that they don't have the funds for it, also Marita shares a room with her mom, it isn't necessarily bad but it's all her mother can afford being a single mother. They also both grew apart from a close friend, Annie had grew apart from age and basally getting sick and somewhat despising her, and then in Maritas case hers was lost from
Arizaga is saying that again the main reason why people come and that’s the BIG picture to it to make better lives for themselves and their love ones.

Although she had a hard childhood, and had to grow up much faster then she should have, she is grateful for her dad bringing them to the U.S because of the opportunities that are out here. My mom was able to go to school and have good paying jobs, and in Mexico it is sometimes either or. Either you work and raise a family or you go to school, but in order to go to a good school you need
Two Sisters, Two Americas is a brilliant article by Brooke Ross that illustrates the life of a family with a mixed-status and what should be done about it. Many people agree that an illegal immigration reform is necessary however people can’t seem to agree on what needs to be done about it. The issue about the immigration reform has created many fights between democrats and Republicans and although both sides think something needs to be done they can’t agree on what to do. Although most people don’t seem to realize is that illegal immigrants are people like us who are trying to find safety and better opportunities.

As difficult this issue is, taking citizenship birthright away would cause more problems than fixing them Most people are familiar with the term “America the land of opportunity” and the meaning of term pertains to throughout the time’s many people entered this nation for a fresh new start but something that isn’t emphasized enough is that also want to provide a secure future for their upcoming children. Taking away birthright citizenship would not just affect children of illegal immigrants but would also affect the children of those who are immigrating legally.

It will not be fair for people who actually try to get into the country legally.A reason I have for this is that many people are getting into our country illegally and it is unfair. Millions of people are trying to get into the country legally and they’re just waiting to get in.Wouldn’t you feel bad for getting into the country illegally when other people are actually doing the right thing to get into the country. It’s like winning a trophy that you don’t deserve. you feel good for getting it but you also don’t feel as good as you did when you got it because you know that you didn’t work hard to get it.
According to CNN in at least seven states including Georgia and South Carolina, universities block undocumented students from attending college as residents and getting financial aid. This shows that it’s not even possible for them to get help, when they are blocked from universities. In addition to this the National Immigration Law center, 10 states have made it easier for undocumented state residents to attend college by offering in-state tuition to those that qualify. Despite that 10 states have made it easier for them , they still have to qualify, meaning that if they don’t 100% percent meet those requirements they will then be left with no education. Nonetheless, with all the misconceptions of them being criminals, terrorists, stealing job, and getting free education every single statistics proves theses to be false.
While some believe that athletes should have their own choice at making a decision to go pro straight out of high school, they should not do so because they will not be able to manage their million dollar contracts respectively. Speaking of contracts, the NBA should eliminate guaranteed contracts for rookies drafted in the first round of the NBA draft. They should do this because a careless high school kid, could just go into the draft not knowing, or caring on how much they are going to make, with the lack of experience on handling millions of dollars. This is very unrepsonsibible for a teenager, and not only for the high school athlete, but also for the basketball association as well. This is because of there noncommitment to have these players
