However, Thomas explains that she was able to focus on her life, and now she wants to bring attention to the idea that immigrants of color can also succeed. The problem is how hard all immigrants in general and the immigrants of color to have a chance to come to the United States to study and work with a limited offer. The problem can be solved if this country changes to the merit-system, like Canada, to collect talented people from all over the world. The article demonstrates the problem of discrimination against immigrants of color, which has been happening in the United States for a long time. It is hard for the immigrants of color to become employees and find a job.
Those who lead the civil rights movement sacrificed their lives for this generation and the next. The civil rights movement forced change so little girls and boys can now receive a good education all while being surrounded by others from different walks of life. The movement has granted African Americans the right to vote and has stopped businesses from discriminating others without consequences. Martin, Rose, Malcolm, and many others had a dream about what this generation is living through. But, there is more work to do and people should never settle for anything less than the best.
I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open. I want to be someone who represents the Hispanic community. We are often pushed down because we come from a different country and the lack of English we speak. I want to show people that hispanics can go to college and get a degree and be successful. I know the road won’t be smooth but I know that at the end everything will be worth

John Winthrop also wrote about this term called, American Exceptionalism. This ideology refers to the idea that Americans are the chosen ones, and that they are the light.” They, shaping America great again every era, create the destiny of youth. First six months of Presidential, it will be difficult for any individual to complete his promises
Even what was happening she was finally able to achieving the American dream. The moment you feel apart of something big and special is the main reason that thousands of immigrant want to live and work in America. Also, in my perspective being born American and coming from former immigrant family, I’ve noticed that I been accepted in society because I was born here so, I already was given the Americans dream.

Print. As a minority student, the author provides a first hand experience in the education system and its barrier.

Asians have been mistreated in the past, and now have a strong need to rise above the stereotype of their race by advancing in education by using their talent. This includes Asian parents pushing their kids to be the best in their class. “They believe that people of color can rise through merit, which they contend can be measured objectively through tests, grades, and educational attainment”(Omatsu p 210). The problem with this is that down the road someone’s child is going to rebel against their “Tiger Mom”, because
Individuals who migrate to America, all share one common goal: a better life. In most cases, many immigrants come to this country in hopes for a better life for themselves or even families, which is exactly what Jurgis aimed to accomplish. Situations like Jurgis’ and other many immigrants who come to this country for a better life or the “American Dream” will do anything possible to work hard enough to get to that point. This is vital to recognize and understand in the social work profession because many of these individuals will find themselves coming to this country with the same mindset, possibly unable to find legal jobs which will lead them to seek illegal jobs with low pay, gruesome conditions, and illegal acts if they are not made aware and pushed into the right path. For a social worker, being able to guide those who need the knowledge and oppurtunnites to achieve the goals they wish to accomplish to the right path is what makes the central issue of Capitalism important so no individual will ever find themselves enslaved to trying to provide for their family or themselves financially or living in a “Jungle” like society where individuals will compete for a chance to work, regardless of the pay in order to achieve the “American
In today’s society, education is a very important issue in households. In America, citizens are blessed with free education up until high school, and then the opportunity to further their education in college is open. However, in many countries and cultures people-especially women- must fight for their right to an education. Horace Mann believed and ensured that every child received a basic education from local taxes. So if countries are denying its people of education, are Horace Mann’s theories of education correct?
Some education solutions are Dream Act, DACA, and recently they have added DAPA. These programs are here to help young adults go to college and get a degree in what they want to be when they grow up, these programs are both for young adults and adults who want to go to school. The president has been trying to pass the Immigration Reform Act to help immigrants and stop some of the deportation, but hasn’t really succeed in that. For many, including Donald Trump, deporting all of the 12 million immigrants and build a wall, which Mexico will be paying for, is the best solution to all of the immigration problems. They have come up with many good solutions that helps immigrants in their stay here in the United States, and many more that they have come up with but can’t get it to pass through congress because there are many people that do not want them
After gaining a better knowledge of Chican@/Mexican-American individuals, it is clear there is a lack of understanding towards these unique cultures and narratives in exchange for assimilating students into a larger American culture. While some students, like Mora, are able to balance both their heritage and finding success in their education endeavors, many students either fail to achieve high success or drop their culture in exchange for not only the more dominant culture, but also higher levels of success and understanding of course material. Mora admits he is a unique outlier if one was to look at Chican@/Mexican-Americans as a whole. Not only did Mora have the opportunity to attend a successful high school, but he grew up in a middle-class household with parents who found moderate success in the business world. Mora says he has Mexican-American friend whose families have gone through extensive struggles just to live in America, with one friend having crossed the Rio Grande at the age of six years old.
In the year 2013, President Barack Obama explained in his State of The Union Address that he would like to take the initiative to give every child the chance to have early on education. Despite many people agreeing that something should be done to help boost the education system in America, there were also argument that came up with this idea being presented. Some of these people argued that by going through with this idea, money would be taken away from taxpayers as well as the government. The supporters of this project state that by going through with this idea, this project could have outstanding effects on the children in their near future. The main driving factors that make these two sides so opposite is the targeted people that will be affected.
I also saw them working closely with one another to gain support and raise awareness on immigrant reforms that affect thousands of undocumented students. The DREAMers are potential students with exceptional abilities and so much talent to give back to America. However, I was intrigued when doing research because I could not find articles about DREAM Teams at CUNY campuses. This made me realize that DREAMers have not yet received as much recognition as they deserve.
Being Hispanic to me is the strength the culture has given me to not give up. Hispanics in the United States face many struggles, not only when many decide to move to this country, but also the issues faced in the countries we come from. Being Hispanic has giving me values and responsibilities to represent who I am as individual; for my culture, my country, and my family. Since the beginning my family has been able to turn a bad situation around. From my grandfather moving from one city to another when he was still a teenager to support himself, and eventually his family; fighting to achieve his dreams, dreams that were once unimaginable.
The influx of these populations especially impacted our school systems that now had many students that needed help learning English. In places like Los Angles the solution was to put them into special schools to help them get more attention to learn English. The Hispanic community became in an uproar about this because the school system was segregating their kids, which was a violation of the 14th Amendment. In Delgado vs. Bastrop Independent School District, it was ruled that the schools could not separate the Hispanic children unless a scientific test in first grade ruled that they need English instruction (Spring, 399). Although they liked the end of segregation, schools still could separate based on the English tests so many
