The article that I choose was teaching tolerance in America. The author of this article is Dudley Erskine Devlin. I felt like this was the best article for me to choose because of some of the points made in this article. I just graduated high school two years ago so I felt like a lot of the information provided in this article was useful. I also felt that at the same time that a lot of this information was bias. This article tells about how school systems faced many problems in the modern era and some of them are still in play today. The author had a few strong points in this paper he felt as if the kids were bringing things they learned from home and off the streets into the school system. One key area that it mentioned was a long line of
Topic: Even if a refugee does beat the odds and makes it to the USA alive and well, gets accepted and is allowed to stay in the USA their problems are not nearly done. They are in new country, with a different language and culture, with no job or money, and get judged and hated by alot of people they meet.
Should america let refugees in the us. I think that refugees should not be allowed in the usa and they should be kicked out of the us because nearly 44% of america are non english speakers that used to be18% so non english speakers are slowly over powering us americans and they will soon kick us out of our country we should kick them out and keep them out for america's sake.
In the beginning, there were perhaps as many as 4,000 Kickapoo. However, by 1660 almost all the Algonquin peoples were living as refugees in mixed villages in Wisconsin. Intermarriage and mixed populations made exact calculations impossible. A federal Indian agent during 1825 believed there were 2,200 Kickapoo, but he acknowledged that only 600 of them were actually on the Missouri reserve. 200 were still in Illinois, and at least 1,400 more were dispersed between Missouri and Mexico. In 1852 there were 600 living in Kansas, but 300 then departed for Mexico soon afterwards, followed in 1862 by 100 more. The approximately 800 Kickapoo who returned from Mexico, starting in 1873, were sent to live in Oklahoma. Oklahoma and Mexican Kickapoo have
The dilemma regarding the American refugee policy and America’s stance on refugees at this point in time is a challenging topic for many to discuss. Not only is this controversy affecting Americans, it is also hurting refugees in desperate need of our help. America needs to start handling the emerging refugee crisis by first working to remove the stereotype associated with refugees, then the U.S. needs to assess which refugee countries should (if any) actually be banned, and after accomplishing those-- America needs to work to help the countries in need by letting refugees in, and working to help the refugees live happily in their country of origin.
Being a refugee could be an awful thing. At that moment in time it could be a bad thing but if you look on the brighter side of things, it could grow into something amazing. There are so many good things that could come out of being a refugee as well as bad.
Refugees are individuals that are being forced to flee from their country of citizenship to another in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster. Western society tends to be judgmental towards people who do not look like their own and so it is very difficult for different cultures to be treated fairly. Recently, President Trump implemented a law that band Muslims, due to the stereotypically classifying them as terrorists. Muslims are being classified as others and treated very poorly due to their religious beliefs and instead, that should not be the case. In the media, Muslims are also portrayed poorly and they are seen as individuals coming to America to take over the country, when in fact they are just regular individuals seeking
refugees are placed in urban areas with extreme poverty caused by the problems, such as low-quality education, unstable neighborhoods, and high amounts of violence in the neighborhoods. Being placed in the urban areas this might lead them discriminated.
My initial questions were dealing with the settlement of Syrian refugees, but as I looked into my primary source I noticed that it was dealing with a different ethnic group and different time era, so that shifted my focus from Syrian refugees to the differences between the two groups and differences between the type of treatment each received. Secondly when I looked at the article I was able to identify a difference in the perception of each group of refugees. In the article I was able to see that there was a focus on homeland security and a precaution for a possible terrorist threat. However, in the primary source there was not a focus on homeland security, but rather security and settlement of the Jewish refugee. Lastly, with the third source my focus becomes broader, since the last source focused on various perspectives of refugees in
More than half the refugees around the globe are under the age of 18, even though children make up 31 percent of the world’s population. Refugees are people who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disasters. The stories that will be covered in this essay are called “The Teacher Who Changed My Life,” by Nicholas Gage and the second novel is “Letter to a Young Refugee from Another,” by Andrew Lam. These stories have many differences between each other but they both left their country to America. What if you had to flee your country?
Many people believe that the United States should not let Syrian refugees into the United States to escape war would damage the country’s safety and way of life, but the U.S. should allow them in because it provides these immigrants such as humanitarian aid, safer families, a well- rounded education, and a strengthened workforce. As the Syrian Civil War rages, ISIS bombs the Middle East, and Russia targets airstrikes, thousands of Syrian refugees flee their home and country with their lives. Children cannot go to school and parents are running out of money. They need aid, but in the war-torn cities there is little help that these people can find. Separated from their jobs, livelihood, and families, they can
British North America (now Canada) where slavery was prohibited, was a popular destination because of its long border gave a lot of access points. Most former slaves settled in Ontario. More than 30,000 people have reportedly fled from there through the network during the peak period of 20 years, although census figures represent only the US Refugee 6000. Many stories are described in the Book of Records in 1872 subways William Nevertheless abolitionist who then led the Philadelphia Vigilance Committee.
Cambodia also known as Kampucheea to the Cambodians (and my family) is a country located in Southeast Asia. The country itself borders Vietnam and Thailand, and similar to all of the countries within Southeast Asia has a rich culture and language unique from its neighbors. From April of 1975 to January of 1979 the communist party of the Khmer Rogue led by the dictator Pol Pot had killed ¼ of the Cambodian population through starvation, labor concentration camps, and even execution (Tang). After the regime of Pol Pot had ended however, what happens to the survivors? What happens to the people in the country that now have to figure out what next? Many Cambodians decided to escape Cambodia
“I pray for the day when the children of Syria wake up to the sounds of birds not bombs” (Syrian quotes pintrest.org). Syrian refugees are escaping from the destroyed countries. In addition, Syrian refugees are leaving there homes that were torn down by war. However, other countries don’t agree with the idea that people want refugees to enter America. Refugees have to be always accepted because of the many hardships they are facing and it has been the American tradition for
In today’s society where most of us are sheltered physically and emotionally, have we ever stopped to think about the unfortunate ones who have been forced to live their lives differently? We are often carried away with basking in our riches that we forget to take a moment to think for those who aren’t as lucky as us. What else can we call those who have nowhere to go and nothing to do— no place to call home, no job to call an occupation, no purpose to speak of? With more people being forced out of their homelands to seek greener grass on the other side, refugee rates are on a constant rise.
