During this activity, the students will look through a recipe book, which I will provide. They will chose a recipe and prepare it. For example, if they chose to do a fruit salad they will chose four different fruits let an adult cut them up and put them into a bowl.
When the assignment was first presented to me, I was really excited because I love to cook even though I am not the best at it. Some dishes I am planning to make for my family are based on Vietnamese dishes my father and relatives have cooked for my family in the past. The stir fried noodles would be my dad’s recipe that he would always make for a party when he needs something quick and easy. The dessert would be this colorful jelly cake that my aunt would always make for my birthday whenever I am in Florida. This connects to my faith journey by giving back to my family for all they have done for me and through that, I am giving back to God, making my relationship with Him and my family stronger.
The Birthright Citizenship Amendment is one that has caused controversy. Should a person that is born in the US, regardless of whether the parents were here temporarily, or illegally be considered an American citizen? The 14th Amendment states “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the States wherein they reside”, ( Spalding, 2010). The interpretation of this amendment has caused the controversy.
Over a century ago, the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution was implemented to grant citizenship to individuals born within the country. This was the first time that it was defined what it means to be a citizen in the U.S. While the amendment was created to address the citizenship of slaves, it is currently under speculation in regards to granting U.S. citizenship to children born to undocumented immigrants (Gans, 2012). While there have been many arguments to place restrictions or eradicate granting children of undocumented immigrants U.S. citizenship, the constitutional right remains the same: if you are born on U.S. land, you are a citizen (Angelo, 2013). This paper argues that the birthright citizenship of U.S. born children of undocumented immigrants should continue to be granted based on the underlying principles of the 14th Amendment and the possible implications of ending birthright citizenship. First, this paper describes birthright citizenship and the 14th Amendment, as well as its use in several Supreme Court cases that are significant to this issue. Then, various implications of eradicating birthright citizenship are discussed. Before discussing the possible consequences of eradicating birthright citizenship, it is imperative to discuss the history and principles underlying it.
The Center for Immigration Studies took a worldwide look in 2010 and found that "only 30 of the world's 194 countries grant automatic citizenship to children born to illegal aliens” (see Fig. 1).
One thing that stood out to me was how the rest of the World put a limitation on Jewish immigration when the Jewish refugees tried to escape from Hitler’s take over. In 1924, the United States passed the Johnson-Reed Act which restricted immigration based on national quotas. President Herbert Hoover went has far to bar the mentally disabled from coming into America. In 1936, an Arab general strike occurred to protest Jewish immigration. Recession and revolt meant a decline in immigration certificates, even for Jews in Europe. Due to this increased violence, the White Paper of May 1939 which put limitations on Jewish immigration to Palestine so that the Jews would never outnumber the Arabs. The Arabs were worried about the Jews taking over Palestine
In his address to the country on immigration, President Obama said that “being an American is not a matter of blood or birth.” (2015, Klukowski), Would you agree? When you think of America and its constitutional rights afforded to all, it’s very likely that birthright citizenship (under the 14th amendment) is one of the rights that comes to mind- “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” The United States and Canada are the only developed nations that grant automatic citizenship so expansively to children born within their borders. Anyone born in the United
In our club we will cook foods chosen by students. We will make a plan on how we will cook it and then the next day we will cook the foods in our groups. To find out how many kids would join the club, I sent out a survey to ten sixth graders and 15 seventh graders. Responses showed that 75% of people thought a cooking club was a good idea and 75% of people said they would be willing to work in a group.
Birthright citizenship is when citizenship is automatically granted to children who are born in the United States of America. Basically, all children born in the US receive automatic citizenship regardless if their parents are born in the US or from other countries.
Immigrants of Hispanic and Jewish groups are a few of the many groups that immigrated to Washington. Hispanics immigrated from countries such as Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Nicaragua, Chile and Argentina. The Jewish immigrants mostly came from Russia, Germany, Poland regions in Europe. They both came to Washington for same reasons, they wanted better job opportunities and to be able to participate in politics. As such they also brought their culture to Washington State.
5.1 million of the 73.1 million minors living the United States currently live with their illegal immigrant parents. The minors are legal American citizens as the 14th Amendment of the Constitution grants citizenship to children born in America, regardless if their parents illegally immigrated to the U.S. or not.. Donald Trump, the 2016 Republican presidential candidate, has proposed taking away birthright citizenship from illegal immigrants' children. By doing this it could reduce the amount of immigrants coming to our country and reduce some government debt. In addition, birthright citizenship is not a natural law. We the people voted on putting the 14th amendment into place, which in turn gives not only us, but illegal immigrants children citizenship, just for being born in America.
There was a loud bang on the door. I sat up right away along with the other 13 people in my room. A soldier dress in head to toe with his uniform along with a winter jacket. He threw five pieces of bread on the floor and told us to go to work before leaving. The bread only got split upon nine of us; I was one of those nine. I had noticed a young boy did not get a piece so I gave him mine. The boy looked at me with a blank stare and took the bread from my frangile bonny fingers. I stood up, buttoned my shirt and adjusted my shorts. Under that slats of wood I slept on, I hid a scarve that I stole from a dead woman. I pulled it out and tucked it in my shirt so no one would notice. As I stepped out the door frame I felt a chilling breeze up my
According to David Lauter, writer of “Democrats move left on immigration, GOP to the right”, a new poll indicates a change in American views on immigration. The shift can be seen on the issue of birthright citizenship, or the citizenship to children born to illegal immigrants. Democrats are beginning to support this right with less than 25% backing to end birthright citizenship, as opposed to 33% in 2006 (Lauter 6). Democrats are arguing this citizenship is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. Republicans, such as presidential candidate Donald Trump, are steadily moving towards opposition, claiming that changes could be made without amending the Constitution. Despite the intense debate, about 4 out of 10 Republicans still believe some illegal
Today was the day I went back home, I am hoping Friedrich is doing well after those attacks. I know he will be fine because he’s going to be staying with his old landlord. I know Friedrich will be okay because he always finds ways to survive.
