In times such as now, immigration policy is a topic of controversial and emotional discussion. The key in having educational, progressive, and prosperous conversations is understanding the theoretical foundations behind the argument that a person stands for or believes in. Having factual evidence to support ideas on concepts such as: the opportunities that immigrants bring to a country, what the international rules actually are that govern the entry and exit of people from one country to another, and the causes, trends, and consequences of international immigration. Finding reason and support for these claims can take the discussion behind immigration policy from one of heated and emotional argument to one of educational and beneficial conversation.
With the current election raging, illegal immigration has been the hot topic amongst both liberals and conservatives. Many conservatives believe that illegals steal jobs, abuse tax benefits, and, most importantly, threaten their way of life. Liberals, on the other hand, support immigration reform based purely on sympathy. They understand that many Latin Americans go through extreme measures to escape hopeless situations back home. While there’s nothing wrong with sympathy for our fellow humans, it may serve to be beneficial to look at immigration reform through the lens of reason.
Donald Trump and his issue with illegal Immigrants. After reading many articles discussing the situation between Donald Trump and the 11 million immigrants in America and trying to understand both sides of this issue, I strongly believe Trump and his insane idea will not be successful. Donald Trump is planning to deport all illegal Immigrants and their children from the United States if he becomes President. He is planning on taking away Birthright citizenship from millions of people who were born in the U.S. from Immigrant parents.
“The wall of Jericho” in America After thinking for a while about what is happening in America, I came to a decision to express my opinion in words. I will keep it short, ridiculous and wonderful to exploit my thoughts fully. Before he became the president of the United States of America, Donald Trump promised the Americans that he will build a wall on the US-Mexico border. He related Mexicans to drug smuggling, raping among other crimes and the wall will be the only solution since it will reduce their flow to America.
Currently, there is an issue facing the nation of epic proportions. Illegal immigrants are invading our land, stealing our jobs, and wasting our tax money by way of government assistance. Their numbers are growing exponentially, and they no doubt wish to take over the country. There is a solution that is beneficial to us all. Initially you may be appalled by my proposal.
Illegitimate immigration is becoming one of the largest problems in today’s America, many believe that a border wall with Mexico would help this problem. In about 3 years ago it occurred that there were about 11.1 million illegal immigrants in America. Of those 84% of them came from Central America, Mexico, and Asia, the largest amount coming from Mexico with 59% of all illegal immigrants. Constructing a border wall to keep out illegal immigrants won't just cost billions of dollars, it would create a less diverse community, make America’s economy weak, and it would hurt the environment. All settlement incorporating illegal immigration that forms great diversity in the community.
Recent events in the past decade has cause many people to portrayed immigrants as terrorists, illegal immigrants, gang affiliated members, drug dealers, etc. This raises questions regarding closing the border or limiting the number of people that can migrate to America. Politicians and law makers are too concerned about this matter and had propose solutions and issue laws in attempt to stop foreigners from coming to America. However, as both sides pushes for their ideas on the issue, it is ultimately up to the younger generation to decide the future of immigrants living in America. Being well informed and understanding of the issue is essential when it comes to choosing whether something is right or wrong. Therefore, articles and texts have been made to discuss the issues of immigrants living in America. Articles likes “Donald Trump Immigrants Myth” has raised awareness to the misconception of immigrants. While attempting to address the issue by using Trump as the focus of the problem, the text falls short on appealing to young audience as its content is too focused and too biased, making the text narrow. Subsequently, the
One of the major overhauls needed in the Department of Homeland Security is immigration enforcement. A 2011 report by Matt Mayer entitled, Homeland Security 4.0: Overcoming Centralization, Complacency, and Politics compiled research by Heritage Foundation analysts and came up with key points that need to be addressed in order to make the Department of Homeland Security run more effectively. The main point of recommendation is to “adopt a fair, honest, and realistic approach to immigration enforcement that recognizes state and local authorities as responsible partners and abjures an “amnesty first” strategy, which would simply encourage more illegal border crossings and unlawful presence. Sensible and functional border security, immigration, and workplace laws are vital to focusing scarce resources on the pressing security threat posed by transnational criminal cartels based in Mexico” (Matt Mayer,
Obama’s Immigration Policy: Presidential Memos to order Deferred Action Within the last few years, immigration has been a huge topic for debate. Americans have seen a large increase in the numbers of immigrants, specifically illegal immigrants, over the last few decades. That has many citizens wondering what has changed. One of the most recent changes has to do with an executive policy known as deferred action.
‘’Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!’’ These specific words are carved into the bottom of our country’s mother, the Statue of Liberty. A country built on such great words, only to forget about them later in its years. The immigration reform policy that President Barack Obama and the current administration have created is something that will give us the hope our founding fathers had so many years ago. The reform is an ethical and moral necessity that will help stabilize our nation’s southern borders, reduce the tension between specific ethnic groups, help those undocumented
If trump gets elected into presidency his primary goal is to deport 11 million immigrant families that live on the U.S. Im not sure if he is talking about non US citizens or families that have expiring visas. He spoke them being forced out of their homes, jobs, and schools by the police at anytime. If he succeeds-which he won’t; there will be billions of dollars gone for his selfish request to supposedly “make America great again” but its people like him that make America what it is today . We as a nation are in debt for billion of dollars as it is , so if he is elected to be president then us as a nation are basically going in a downward spiral because we already owe trillions of dollars.
There are about, if not more, 11.3 million undocumented immigrants in the United States of America only in 2014. Mexicans make up about half of all unauthorized immigrants (52%), even though their numbers have been declining over the past years. The numbers have declined because it is said that just under Barack Obamas Presidency has deported 1.4 million undocumented immigrants while in office. An immigration reform would be helpful because it would boost the economy, increase tax revenue, decrease government deportation expenses, and in gaining legal status it will help keep families together. Many people oppose it but with the right regulations a reform, which both parties agree on, can be passed. The United States should pass an immigration
This ideology is simple, and is used in day to day terms as keeping ‘honest people honest’. With a hardened border, the effort and money that would need to be put in in order to surpass the infrastructure in place, would bring along a different breed of criminal, and one who has the wits and whereabouts to avoid detection and prosecution. Just as with the wars on drugs, creating a stricter border patrol, simply removed the amateur drug smugglers, leaving the large funded cartels with the upper hand. While some authors believe that creating a closed border will only lead to attacks on weaker targets, the regarded weaker targets will have fewer civilian casualties, and therefore will result in less financial cost in order to rebuild the affected area. When it comes to opening our borders more, the implications are reversed.
Illegal Immigration Reform More than 11.4 million illegal immigrants currently reside in the United States that’s almost equivalent to how many people live in the entire state of Ohio. Most of these illegal immigrants are hardworking people that help the welfare of the economy and the have a high impact on the culture of the United States. The proposition is that Illegal Immigrants who have paid there Tax’s and have resided for more than 10 years, consecutively in the United States should be given a way to get a legal residency. This residency would give them benefits like a social security which would let them get a good job and a license and have basic human rights. Illegal immigrants deserve these rights because they create the most business,
