I was born on january/31/1919 in Vietnam and immigrated to France. In 1942 I was studying at the university in Nice, where I met a fellow student, Jadwiga Alfabet, a Jewish refugee from Poland. In the summer of 1942 the French police began arresting Jews with foreign nationality. In September 1943 the Germans occupied Nice and all the Italian controlled zones and we were in danger of deportation. I decided to hide not only my wife, but also her relatives. In November 1943 I took a train with a few of my wife's relatives to get them in touch with a smuggler who could take them to Switzerland, I made this trip several
Native Americans had been able to do what they wanted until Christopher Columbus “founded” America in 1492 (stated by History.com) , which then, everything changed for them. The native’s lives have been affected in the past, present, and will be affected in the future. They have been treated unfairly by the Americans, which has caused their culture to decrease over the years. Native American’s culture, history, and daily life have been affected by European migration into the Americas.
From an economic aspect, immigration is somewhat beneficial since it increases the US work force and it’s economy. According to Camarota Steven on his testimony’’ Immigration and the US economy’’, immigration overall increases the economy of the US due to the fact that more workers and more people mean bigger GDP. He also pointed out that the impact of immigration of the seize of the economy is not a measure of the benefits of natives. That means that regardless of the benefits of natives, Immigration is a tool to increase the economy of the US. On the other hand, it can be detrimental to the US economy. In fact most of the immigrants work “under the table” which make the fiscal
Effects of immigration on the economy also raise the argument over social service abuse, which is immigrants using social services provided by the government without paying social service taxes or being in the right legal status to obtain those services. Many have argued that illegal immigrants should not be entitled to health care services and public education should be denied to illegal immigrant children. If this were to happen then family migrants would be less common, and this is counter productive to the U.S, it is much better if the immigrants arrive with their families to help them assimilate better within society and makes them better citizens.
A important dilemma in my personal life is about my experience as a first generation immigrant in the United States. My parents take extra precaution to make sure I do not loose sight of where I came form and so, my parents drive to Mexico every year with my sister and I to see relatives who are living in conditions worse than ours so that we are grateful of our life in America. As I see my cousins and nieces/nephews grow up, I see realize that they have no real role model to look up to as no one has completed college when their parents exited high school and some not even that. So I want to help my family members to aspire to be something better in life and not a mailman or manual laborer like my father and uncles. I would like to instill
After the arrival of the Spanish into the New World,the Native Americans lives changed drastically during the 15-16th hundreds. It brought major changes,politically,socially,and economically. The Natives were obviously vulnerable and submissive towards the Spanish.These events that I’m going to talk about shaped and changed the lives of many of Native Americans.It's the most unforgettable history of all times because it was the most unbelievable story.
In spite of the negative effect, one of the positive effects is that illegal immigrants end up enhancing the local economy. For example , these immigrants in Texas are said to have raised the Social Security Trust Fund by $75 billion. Given that some immigrants do not qualify for various benefits, some businesses will capitalize on this factor to conserve on labor costs. Furthermore, immigrants usually end up working low-end jobs that don't entice
How did the Native American people groups who shaped North America for centuries become reduced to stereotypes portrayed in movies and other media? What is the place for advocacy and social justice ministries in these communities? These questions captured my attention during my education at Taylor University. At Taylor, most students are not aware of Native American tribes beyond the media portrayal in westerns or sports logos. As I conducted research for the Butler Undergraduate Research conference and the Emmaus Initiative, a nonprofit tracking religious freedom for Christianity, Islam, and Judaism in the United States, it became evident the blind spot regarding Native American studies and advocacy was a national trend. During my future
The first article is called Digging Out a Lost City’s Secret. It’s basically about Teotihuacan remains found by archaeologists. Many possessions resembling boxes filled with shells, jaguar remains, and rubber balls. The second article is called Skeleton Dating Back to the Ice Age Sheds Light on Native American Origins. Briefly, the previously mentioned article is about a young girl who died 12,000 to 13,000 years ago in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula by divers diving in the area. The last article is called Guatemala’s Finest Clothing Shops. It is pretty much about Guatemalan trends working ways into design studios to make shoes, night gowns, and purses. The one that states more informational facts, in my opinion, would be the second article, Skeleton Dating Back to the Ice Age Sheds Light on Native American Origins.
Since the 15th century they have been here. They have been treated horrifically and have endured much pain and suffering. Without them America as we know it would not exist. The history of America is the struggle of African Americans. In Native Son by Richard Wright, the ideals of systemic racism come into fruition. Institutionally and systematically, African American males have been victims of racism and discrimination in society because of their skin color.
As I continued my journey trying to find my Buffalo herd I kept thinking about the Nez Perce tribe and Chief Joseph. The clothing they wore, the headpieces, their hair everything about them was unique. It would be a shame if they changed it because of the wishes of another. Culture is a big part of everyone's life and one can simply not have culture, even us Buffalo have culture. I remember before my herd left me we would all sing songs and enjoy time together while we traveled across the land of the free. I ended up traveling all the way to Oklahoma and I wished I hadn’t. As soon as I arrived I saw a sign that said, “Save the man, kill the Indian”. The Americans had changed the Natives, ripping them of their culture and love. It was a horrendous
The point that may hinder a great deal of immigrants is being able to speak the language. First someone has to be able to communicate to be able to gain the trust with anyone in America. A job may not have the patience to deal with someone who cannot speak the language. The only job they might be able to job are low paying, high demand jobs considering there are more than a few immigrants in the same position. If someone from another country can learn how to speak the English language, then they greatly raise their chances to obtain a favorable paying job and lead on to the American Dream.
This large effect of aliens in the labor market lowers wages and working conditions for American. It prevents our local poor from entry-level opportunities, adding to the extending gap between rich and poor in our society, and increases business need on cheap labor instead of advancing and transforming unskilled worker to become proficient employee.
According to this article, new immigrants are a problem in the society as they represent a workforce which is cheaper than that offered by citizens of the country. With new immigrants in the picture, the wages of the American citizens is lowered. Moreover, the new immigrants are the stereotype for taking the jobs which would otherwise be taken by the U.S citizens.
From as early as the time of the early European settlers, Native Americans have suffered tremendously. Native Americans during the time of the early settlers where treated very badly. Europeans did what they wanted with the Native Americans, and when a group of Native Americans would stand up for themselves, the European would quickly put
