Immigration has been a topic of great discussion and controversy even before this year’s election. In recent years, illegal immigration has been the focus of these discussions, but other forms of immigration exist. Immigrants also immigrate through legal processes.
Immigration has become an issue all around the world. Everyone have different opinions on how immigrants affect our society. Is immigration good for the economy, the employment rate for immigrants and their pay, how the ban could have a major impact on the U.S., why do people migrate, and DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals). This essay will hopefully answer any question about immigration and we should handle the ban.
Illegal immigration has become more of an important issue in the United States since Donald Trump’s campaign for president in 2016. Immigration can be known as the act of people crossing national borders to live permanently in other countries. It becomes illegal when they cross those borders without the legal right to be in those countries. The U.S. has been an immigrant country since the pilgrims in the 1600s and has ever since, been diverse. Most of the immigrants are Latinos that come from Central America, but they also come from all over the world. The current path to legal citizenship is flawed and needs to be reformed to allow rights to be upheld, equal and fair treatment of all applicants, and to facilitate the process altogether.
Immigration can be seen as an important role to maintain diversity and a steady economy in many countries, including the United States. However, while people are trying to immigrate to locations where they would get better opportunities for themselves and their families, they are instead being greeted by death or closed doors, caused by awful conditions when trying to cross the border or the inability to gain access to a country with better opportunities. Immigrants are forced to cross illegally to improve their and their family’s lives due to the difficulty of attaining citizenship or visa; millions of families have been separated and they have to live not knowing what has happened to their loved ones. The trauma of an incident like this can impact someone’s life forever, and in order to ensure people’s safety and wellbeing, everyone should have a real chance to gain citizenship, disregarding their country of origin. The path to citizenship should be made easier and more inclusive so that people who are searching for opportunities are given the chance to improve their lives.
The student organization, CHANGE, hosted a rally on Thursday to educate the public and support the undocumented community here at Central Connecticut State University and around the United States.
Former president Obama once said, “My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too” (“Barack Obama”). This idea of immigration has caused a lot of controversy in the past year. Since Donald Trump became president in 2016, he has begun talk of phasing out DACA- a program which currently allows over 790,000 undocumented immigrants to live safely in America. The removal of DACA is immoral and should not be allowed because it is legally unnecessary, is going to wreak havoc on the lives of those protected by the program, and will cause a strain on the economic well-being of America.
“Every single immigrant undocumented or documented, is a future American” (Diaz). According to Krogstad, Passal, and Cohn,” A rising share of unauthorized immigrants have lived in the U.S for at least a decade” (2017). During the last few days President Donald Trump has worked on building a wall on the Mexican border, and his dream (deporting all illegal immigrants) is soon becoming a reality. Many Hispanic Immigrants are saying goodbye to their dream, and are finding ways to cross the border, but every time an immigrant tries to cross the border illegally it is a different outcome. Border Patrols are detecting more, and more immigrants crossing the border illegally, and when they perceive them, the border patrols dispatch them back where they came from.
Sanctuary cities. The burden of many politicians and the home of many immigrants. California being one of these states that have several cities that are sanctuary including Oakland where a recently controversy brewed up. In late February, the Democratic mayor of Oakland, Libby Schaff tipped off the community of illegal immigrants through a Tweet that helped them escape from the Immigration and Customs Enforcements (ICE). The tweet said the following "I know that Oakland is a city of law-abiding immigrants and families who deserve to live free from the constant threat of arrest and deportation. I believe it is my duty and moral obligation as mayor to give those families fair warning when that threat appears imminent.” ICE’s intended number of captured immigrants was roughly around a 1,000 however, they only manage to capture roughly 200 of the illegal immigrants from Oakland.
Each year, U.S. Immigration Policy allows roughly 1 million individuals to immigrate legally into the United States. These immigrants all have one thing in common when coming to the United States. Most of the people that immigrate are young and are looking for better employment opportunities or reunite with family already in the U.S. Other people are highly skilled or are entrepreneurs and come to the U.S. looking to utilize their skills. Although they have the same goals they fall under two categories; those who are legally in the country, and those who enter the U.S. illegally. The bill I choose to discuss is known as the ``Immigration Compliance Enforcement Act’’ or (ICE). The bill prohibits the Secretary of Homeland Security from using
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" on their famous Statue of Liberty. Immigrant into the USA has recently become the contentious issue. Democrats and republican have clashed with each other, and with the white house. Republican has clashed with republican also. Lots of terror attack as well as illegal immigrants who are here in US for the job opportunity and for their future is the reason for the Issue. All of the immigrant who are here and the out world all people are interested in the issue because the people who are here living in US are in fear of deportation as well as for the future of their family. Similarly, US is known as the melting pot where there are people from all around the world so
There are few topics that evoke such emotion as that of immigration. One can go up to almost any person and receive a heavy one sided feeling about the dilemma. Illegal immigration has done much more good to our nation’s economy than it has done to hurt it. People immigrate to this country for many reasons. To find freedom, to escape or to make money. Each of these things being opportunities that just do not exist in their own country.
The United States’s latest misfortunately picked president, Donald Trump has put forward the idea that immigrants who have illegally made their way into the US must be deported back to the home country they have managed to flee until they are able to legally file for US citizenship. Trump’s supporters claim that this is an adequate action because they see it as the immigrants will stop taking their jobs, which is not true because the immigrants mostly only take the jobs they do not want. While some may think this is a suitable resolution, even a beneficial one to the US, it is not because deporting the people will not stop them from coming back, immigrants actually help the economy and deporting them would only hurt it.
One of the major issues facing our country this election cycle is the topic of illegal immigration. This is a major issue facing our country because many candidates have different stances on this topic. What to do with all of the illegal immigrants is a hot topic right now in the news. Many people have varying opinions on what should be done. Many times what some people consider the best option is usually not the best and faces strong scrutiny from many other people. What should be done with all of the illegal immigrants that are entering our country?
Illegal immigration has long been a topic of debate in today’s society. The aliens have caused many social issues to our nation and should be forcibly removed from the United States. Illegal immigrants have brought millions of pounds of drugs, have a crime rate two and a half times that of legal residents, and have deprived citizens of resources. Many people do not understand the true effect they have on our nation.
For many, the United States is more than nation of freedom. By September of 2016, 84,995 refugees had been admitted to country, the largest amount since 2002. All of which are fleeing persecution and harm from their country of origin. However, hundreds are denied entry to the U.S., not for suspicion of being a terrorist, or for criminal charges, but because a judge doesn’t deem a threat serious enough. Should the criteria for asylum be altered to allow immigrants who suffer from other forms of maltreatment to gain asylum?
