Immigration has been a controversial issue in America throughout history. Immigrants were seen as people who took jobs from Americans,and to top it off didn’t appreciate American culture. Foreigners through the decades have had difficult times fitting in with American society and are often met with hostility around the country. Going into the interview with my Chinese teacher, I believed I would hear a story along the lines of this, shedding the light on the ignorance in America, but I received the complete opposite. This interview opened my eyes to a different perspectives of the immigrant experience, and that all aren’t necessarily negative.
The development of an education system in the refugee camps is an impressive yet intimidating task. For that reason, the three things that I would like to understand before obligating me to this project are: 1) How long are the refugee camps offered as a necessary placement for the Chechens to be located in, 2) How and when can I start compiling data on the education levels of all the refugees within the camp on the different subjects of reading, writing and math, 3) How would I start to find out the mental health problems of those due to the traumatic change in environment and lose of identity, 4) I would have to find suitable teachers, buildings, and who will be funding the program. Hopefully, there are suitable buildings because this will be another expense we would have to look at for funding purposes. Having a psychologist within the school would also help tremendously because many students need the counseling. All of these items are needed in order to get things in order for the start of the project. Of course, there will be other things that I would like to better understand, but those will come up in the progress of the work.
The U.S. should accept refugees who have background checks because they’re trying to flee from extreme violence, we don’t want history to repeat itself, and they want to start over, they’re not committing terror attacks.
“Doesn’t the world see the suffering of the millions of refugees of Palestinians who have been living in exile around the world or in refugee camps for the past 60 years? No state, no home, no identity, no right to work. Doesn’t the world see this injustice?” (Ismail Haniyeh). This is how many of the universal refugees feel. There are millions of refugees all over the world in similar situations. This is also similar to how Ha feels in the book “Inside Out and Back Again.” Ha’s life mirrors the universal refugee experience because many lives are turned inside out, they have to get used to their new living arrangements, and they have to adapt to a new world.
The refugee crisis that plagues the world is often referred to as the Syrian refugee crisis, and Western countries are usually concerned only for the affect it has on them and their country. Yet the countries taking in the most refugees are the relatively stable nations in the Middle East that are closest to those in crisis, like Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey, not the wealthy nations most capable of supporting the refugees. These countries are often small and suffering their own economic and political woes, and struggle with the masses of refugees entering the countries. Various groups are working to raise money and support for these refugees, and other poor African and Middle Eastern countries are attempting to do their best, but without the help of the wealth West, the refugee crisis is not going to go away. A question has been posed to the nations of the world; are they willing to take in any of the millions of the desperate refugees?
universal refugee experience is shared with many refugees, including having to learn a new language, becoming sick and malnourished, and having to make new friends in their new home.
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.
The Australian Human Rights Commission headed an inquiry into the children living conditions in detention centres and through this inquiry accumulated evidence of human rights breaches, breached by to Australian Government in relation to children. One such area they documented was concerning the provision of clothing and footwear provided to children. After conducting this inquiry they found that the delivery of essential goods was inadequate for many children in detention centres. A 13 year-old girl living on Nauru explained her struggles living with little clothing,
Overall, my feelings and thoughts about this experience were positive, emotional, as well as informative. I feel that some of the things that were mentioned I would have never known until this interview was actually conducted. The thought of troops living conditions while being deployed was just horrific. You have military troops out fighting for our country and protecting, ,but don’t have a descent bed to sleep in, no air conditioning, being on missions that they don’t know whether they are going to make out dead or alive. They are not able to contact their families as much as they would like to because they are so many miles and hours away. I give the upmost respect to our military troops because it if wasn’t for them who knows what the world
For my veteran essay, I decided to interview my grandpa, Joe (my mom’s dad). When he served, he served in the army as a chef for two years. His rank was specialist, 5th class. In 1965, Joe came home from work and saw his girlfriend (my grandma) and his mom looking at a letter, crying. She gave him the letter and he felt a bus token. When you were drafted, they would give you a bus token to get to the army. He was stationed in Fort Gordon in Georgia. He stayed in the U.S because his father died when he was eight years old and he had to support his mother and my grandma.
For this assignment, I interviewed my grandmother. She was born in October of 1933, and she has lived in McMinnville, Tennessee for many decades. She is one of the few people I know who is old enough to remember it. Because of that, I chose to interview her over anyone else.
Sergeant Scocca called the Command Center and reported that an anonymous caller who claimed to be a Confidential Informant by the name of "AMILE" alleged that police officers were demanding money an exchange not raid 726 Willoughby Ave, which is a drug prone location. Numerous investigative steps were take n in an effort to identify the caller, but we were unsuccessful. Surveillances at the location yielded negative results for any Member of Service visiting or associating with the above location. A search warrant was conducted and no MOS were present, but an active Member of New York City Department of Correction mini shield was recovered among a pound of marijuana. After a thorough investigation and the fact that we have no evidence to suggest
Given these points, there was a great deal of overlaps seen in the responses between the refugee mentors. Themes identified included work, culture, family, and interests. Socializing, keeping active and eating healthy were perceived as imperative for maintaining health and well-being among all the refugee mentors interviewed. Aspects of home culture were maintained through the immigration process in activities they engage in during rest time, the foods they eat, and traditions celebrated. In addition, the mentors proclaimed their feelings of respect for this opportunity to live in America and ease some of the stressors and worries related to safety.
Why is vetting these refugees now a question? Well, because there was just an attack on Paris: and they say one of the dead suicide bombers had a Syrian passport on them some can have their doubts about bringing these refugees to the US. When you think of the many attacks and millions of deaths caused by those attacks like Paris, or the terrorist like isis, it is hard to accept refugees into our country. Yeah there are pluses to vetting the refugees like making their families safer, but how much safer does it make us. They say that there is a long 18-3year process for letting refugees be able to be vetted with many government background checks, multiple questions, and screening people. How many times has technology failed, or information
During the summer of 2013, I attended an international youth leadership camp where I met 50 Iraqi teenagers. They taught me about their culture and what their life is like in Iraq. The most important thing that I learned from them was that though we hailed from different countries, we had a lot in common. Now, whenever I hear news updates on the Middle East, it is not just another conflict in a foreign land but a conflict that directly affects my friends. In a way, I feel obligated to learn about what the Middle East is going through. Since I started my semester abroad, I have gained an increased interest in immigration and I would like to study the Middle Eastern refugee crisis more in-depth. Researching alongside a professor at another college would allow me to gain insight on the crisis that I wouldn’t achieve on my own. Though this will be the first time I will have researched with a professor, I look forward to offering my skills and discovering what there is to learn about the Middle Eastern refugee
