Immigration Reform: Yes, or No Currently, there is constant dispute over the United States immigration system, pertaining to whether or not it should be reformed and if so how should it be done. Large uncontrolled immigrant population has begun to flourish in this nation due to flaws in the system.

Adding to this, another controversial topic falling within the reforming of the system is its effect on employment rates.
Everyone wants an answer, thus, they create there own answers that only benefit them and possibly their friends and relatives. Alas, this lack of unity will likely result in our extinction one day, and it is this fact that many people find distressing because we all know that there are solutions out there we simply cannot grasp right now, either due to political, financial, or social troubles. For example, the issue of illegal immigrants here in this country, particularly undocumented immigrants originating from the chaotic country of Mexico.

They could come in and arrest them, and they could be deported before you even had time to sit down and think about it” (Kingsolver, ch. 11). Estevan and Esperanza show that even though they lost everything in Guatemala they came here even with the chance of losing everything again.

Though some groups of individuals left their homes willingly in order to take advantage of what America had to offer, others were forced to flee due to inhabitable conditions in their homelands. Both Chinese and Irish immigrants, however, were often disappointed with their treatment upon arrival in America. The Anglo-Saxons that first inhabited America viewed immigrants as uncivilized and quickly declared their superiority, forcing immigrants to work for them. They created laws that prevented groups from accessing similar privileges as them and racialized these groups based on their cultures and languages.

Fourth, Jefferson’s decision to buy the Louisiana Territory impacted trade by helping to secure the port of New Orleans and the use of the Mississippi river for us and helped/expanded westward trade. Fifth, Jefferson’s decision to buy the Louisiana Territory impacted economics by gaining western half of richest river valley, laid foundations for future major powers, supported Jefferson’s idea for a “great agrarian society” (democratic republican / anti-federalist party goal), by establishing precedents for future expansion: the acquisition of foreign territory and peoples by purchase and their incorporation into the union not as vassal states but on a basis of equal membership (democratic imperialism), getting complete control of Mississippi River and Delta, and getting natural

On the contrary, Mexicans and other immigrants just answered to the demand for laborers. For years, many Mexican people risked their lives to work in America. Unfortunately, they have suffered discrimination, and some official U.S regulations have been set in place to deport people back to Mexico (ex. Operation Wetback in 1954). However, those same issues and patterns of Mexican migration continue today which puts this topic at the center of national debate and subjects Mexicans immigrants to negative criticism.

The United States was perceived as an opportunity for a new life for many of the immigrants. Thus, the many reasons for their immigration was to flee from crop failures, lack of land or jobs, increasing taxes, and shortage of food (famine). Furthermore, many people left to the United States with the intention of having personal freedom and being free from being judged of their political or religious beliefs.

The immigrants will take part in drug dealing and be stealing the legal documents from people to help them get employment. If we can analyze the speed of terror increase in America over the past years, the issue became a political escapade when the number of immigrants began to grow.
This excess application of democracy caused contention among colonists. In his article, Holton supports this by stating, “From the complex struggle of the 1780’s, the Founding Fathers extracted a simple lesson: that the uneducated farmers who seized the ship of state during the American Revolution had damn near driven it aground.” He continues to say that most ordinary Americans during this time were not yet ready or capable to rule themselves.
