Being American let’s anyone be whatever gender they want religion, culture, and language . America is a place of freedom, where people are guaranteed natural rights .
However, the process of physically and verbally removing whole families from their homes, and sending them back to places that some might not even recognize is just absurd. The numbers prove that immigrants do contribute to society and that hard working illegal immigrants, in my opinion, earned their right to be in the United States when their whole mindset is to provide something better for themselves and their. Yes, not all illegal immigrants pose positive impacts to society, but not all legal Americans are positive impacts to society
By proliferating indifference we turn a literal blind eye to those in need when sometimes, all a person needs is an opportunity and a starting point. Many will say that “well if they weren’t so goddamn lazy, maybe they wouldn’t be poor.” Although it is true that the American Dream, by definition, is achievable for those who work hard for it, sometimes hard work is simply not enough. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr once proclaimed in the 1960s, “It’s all right to tell a man to lift himself by his own bootstraps, but it is cruel jest to say to a bootless man that he ought to lift himself by his own bootstraps.” The moment we begin to realize that the American Dream is NOT achievable for all is the moment we begin to synthesize solutions to level the playing field so that America may be the dream that it once
In his cartoon, Darrin Bell is implying that anti-immigrant attitudes today are continuities of anti-immigrant attitudes in the past. Although reasons for wishing away immigrants have changed over time, anti-immigrant attitudes in America are still extremely prevalent. It appears that the United States has started realizing the potential and benefits these immigrants present, but continue to shift their thoughts in order to align them with their attitudes. Through the cartoon, he is suggesting that the immigrants are minding their own business and doing what they need to do in order to support themselves. They are causing no harm to Americans, contrary to the belief that they are stealing American jobs.
The American dream is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Because of politics and everything going on in the world, the American dream seems unreachable. Life. Everyone deserves to live their own. Living the ideal American dream isn’t always easy.
In the essay, it stated,”If America wants to make new rules curtailing benefits of legal immigrants, the should apply only to immigrants who arrive after those rules are already in place. ”(Mukherjee) It is shown how Mira’s culture is different compared to other people who live in America because she wasn’t born in America, Mira is an Indian citizen who immigrated to the U.S. with her sister to have a better life. Moreover, it is influencing her life because she feels like she isn’t being treated the same as other people. Her view of this situation is different than other people that are not the same culture as her because Mira is being treated like a person who just came to America.
Internment is a less ruinous word then prison. But, that 's exactly what it was. First of all, the first reason I am strongly against the Executive Order 9066, is because it was unconstitutional. According to the Bill of Rights, all american citizens have freedom of religion, speech press and right to assemble. This shows that even though all American citizens have the same rights, the Japanese Americans were casted out, like they part of a different country, even though they were loyal as americans.
It is willing to change and willing to take a chance. That is what Americanism is and anyone who follows these ideas and ways is an American, no matter where they are. Being an American is living life how you see fit. A birthplace is only necessary to fill out legalities, it does not determine who you are as a person.
Merely, the act of restricting the LGBT community was unconstitutional and angered multitudinous Americans. In addition, Donald Trump banned Muslim travel in airports, not following the constitution. By banning travel to Muslim countries, Trump saw it as a way to increase the national security. Instead, Trump’s ongoing travel ban on six separate Muslim countries was deemed unconstitutional, due to how it stereotyped against the Muslim community. Although the discrimination and highly unnecessary tactics are unconstitutional, several states drafted a form of the travel ban.
My children won’t be able to control what religion they are apart of, what culture they originated from, what gender they are, or what race they are. All of those things, are out of our control. God made us who we are for a reason. God loves and wants us to love each other. Mark 12.31 says, “The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself.
“Stop Laughing at Donald Trump” Immigrants have been venturing to the United States for as long as this country has been established due to the extraordinary opportunities we have to offer. In the past, immigrants would have to venture overseas and pass through Ellis Island to get their chance at the American Dream. Although the process of becoming an American citizen does not require immigrants to go through such stringent restrictions, immigrants still have to apply for citizenship in one of the many ways it is offered here in the United States. Today some immigrants neglect the responsibility that comes with becoming a citizen and a great deal of them cross over our borders illegally and live here with no proper documentation. People have
Normally Henry is often afraid of what may happen next in the war, I just live life day by day, worried about things that are actually relevant to me. I feel that the american flag is excessive. We are all born as human beings, why does it matter what part of the world we’re from? We are all entitled to roam planet earth freely, but due to the fact that america has claimed a portion of land, as well as every other damn country,
Immigrants were confronted with just as much adversity as minorities and critics; like African Americans during the Great Migration (Document B), foreigners left what they knew best behind for better conditions. Refugees were also the victims of the Klu Klux Klan because they were not full-blooded Americans. The restrictions on the first amendment applied to the general populous (Document G), including aliens. They often took the blame for communist activity during the Palmer Raids, just as the union leaders of the country did. Clearly, immigrants did not flu under the radar during and just after the
In the novel, Jesus was described as just being part of the 'family. ' In a world such as this, religion, in my opinion, would be the most important thing to try to preserve for future generations. One of the most important things in life is to love others, and be able to interact with others, and the Bible is probably the best example a book can set for others. If all aspects of literature vanished, I would not allow faith and religion to go with
However, all sorts of devious methods were used to prevent the colored from becoming registered voters. All men are created equal, but the colored were not given the equal rights to vote nor were they treated equally at that time. An unjust law is no law at all. Thus, why should the colored obey laws that were unjust? They had not only a legal and a moral responsibility to obey just laws, but a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.
