In the words of James Truslow Adams said on the American dream: “life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement.” It should be regardless of social class or circumstances of birth or how you got to America, that is the moral
While immigrants continue to take away jobs, they are a contributing factor to paying taxes and helping out society. The sooner we allow them to stay in America, the greater the benefits would be. Allowing them legal status would improve our country. Everybody must be treated with respect and dignity, no matter the race. Deportation must be allowed depending on the situation, but other than that, immigrants should be given permission to
As United States citizens, we lack the motivation for preparedness and choose to wait until something happens in order to find a solution. Representative Rush Holt speaks out on the issues The United States has as a whole in the article, Why Foreign Language Matters, by using the three rhetorical devices, ethos, pathos, and logos. Holt can be given credibility because he directly quotes the words of one of our Presidents, Barack Obama, trying to persuade us on what we should be doing to become bilingual. The author uses pathos to grab the readers by the heart and toggle their emotions when he refers to the attack of 9/11. By stating factual evidence, the author uses logos when he discloses the amount of money raised for the National Security Education Program.
Whether the measures that are been taken are good or bad is debatable, but deportation is certainly one of those terrible measures that needs to reevaluated because of its negative effects in the agricultural department, its destruction within families, and the weakening of the structure of society. It is time that we as citizens of the United States to act upon these drastic measures. We need to unite against the evils of deportation because if we do not do something about it, then not only will the targeted undocumented people suffer the consequences, but so will we and the entire United States. Instead of fighting off the undocumented people as if they were a plague seeking to destroy the United States, we should be helping and giving them more assistance because they have done more good than bad for this country. That is why, as citizens of this country, it is our duty to protect and defend the minority groups that are under the care and protection of this country, including the undocumented immigrants living in the states, because they are, after all, as much human as we
As you grow up, you live every day in fear of being deported. Under the Obama-administration, a new policy was created called DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a program that allows undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. at the age of 16 or under, who are called the DREAMERS, to be shielded from deportation. Since DACA was created, 800,000 DREAMERS have been saved from being deported. Even though many Democrats are trying to fight it, President Donald Trump has announced the ending to the DACA program. DREAMERS who came to the United States as young children and are going to contribute to society should get to stay here.
In the story “The Upside of Income Inequality”, Gary S. Becker and Kevin M. Murphy effectively express’s the importance and need for income inequality in our society. Furthermore, Holly Ellyatt’s newspaper article Income Inequality: Is It Good For Everyone? serves to also point out that economic success and greater productivity is linked to “income inequality”. Although it may seem extremely unfair for someone to make up to two hundred and fifty times as much money as someone else, this notion of “income inequality” actually benefits the society as a whole by encouraging others to work much harder in life and better themselves and their education.
It is easy for myself and everyone else to take for granted the fact that America is a free country, but as best as I possibly can, I will uphold the culpability given to me, to help the country in any way possible. Imagine a country where everyone used their freedoms and abilities to better our country and mankind in general. It is amazing to think what the outcome would be with the participation of all Americans using their freedoms and rights to help others, our government, and our country. When I examine our
1. The essay’s thesis is, “that we can have an immigration policy that both strengthens our borders and welcomes immigrants.”. In my own words I would restate it as, “Our country should have a better system with letting immigrants with good intensions into our country, and the treats outside of our country, while never discriminating any immigrants.”. 2.
“What is the United States if not a country of immigrants? If that’s no longer [the case], what does the Statue of Liberty symbolize? Why don’t we take it down?”(Goldstein). Most refer to America as a melting pot because America is a melting pot of different cultures. Yet without immigration, America wouldn’t be the way it is today.
Immigrants are here and they are here for a reason. They contribute to the economy, do the jobs that I know I wouldn’t want to do and want to be here legally. If the federal government passed a bill that allowed them to be here legally I think everyone would win. The government would collect taxes, medicare, social security. The states would have workers to produce their products, just one example.
In the United States, there is a huge problem with people entering the nation, illegally. Some people want the ability to immigrate illegal for some countries. Presidential Candidate Donald Trump wants to build a wall along the border of Mexico and the United States to prevent illegal immigration. The best way for people to come to the country, is legally. If they enter legally, they will have the same abilities as any other native-born citizen.
