I hope that you are doing well. My name is Robert Miller, and I am a student at Florida State University. I had recently voted for you in my first election and I am a supporter of your ideals and what you stand for as a person. I am honored that we have a war veteran in office for my county and someone who has seen both sides of the government being a part of the judicial system. I am writing this letter regarding the HB 9 – Federal Immigration Enforcement which is now in the Judiciary Committee. My intentions are to persuade you into voting for the bill and push it onto the state governor Rick Scott to sign it.
When you think of America a lot of people would instantly think of a togetherness or liberty and pride. Why is that now a thing we sometimes can’t do in today’s society? I think because America is sometimes scared of the unknown. We stick to the rules and bear no more than necessary. This leads us to a very popular topic of 2017 since the election of Donald Trump. Illegal Immigration. It’s thrived in the most recent years to high impossible numbers. To really understand it all, I’m going to get every aspect of immigration to get fully behind the scene. I feel very mutual on this topic, nor agreeing or disagreeing. But to jump right into it, I want to start with how it affects our country financially. There are right now 12.5 million illegal immigrants in the United States which then leads to a tax burden of approximately 8,075 dollars per member. That right there sounds crazy. We put ourselves more and more into debt. I think Trumps view especially with him being a business man, he knew the tax burden was ridiculous in every way possible. I think it needed a change. Who knows the long-term effects it would have on us as a country in 5 to 10, how much more debt can we really take. In all reality, it cost us 135 billon dollars to support illegal immigrants. I’m not saying it’s for a bad cause but I think to come into this country it has to be easier than sneaking through a border or just inviting yourself in. As anyone would want to feel safe in their country, know they have security in their jobs, money and their taxes are going to benefit the country. Another note is that illegal immigrants do get treated differently when being taxed. It’s said they pretty much get bypassed on paying any income tax at all. So, they are already ahead of the game because you weren’t born in America. I think that’s very double standard. American Born citizens have no choice but to pay our taxes. I just think they need to be treated equally as us if they are going to be in our country. (Matt O'Brien) That leads a little bit into the next point I want to show, I want to show how immigrants are treated in other countries. Show why we should have more laws, we seem to be the only country that is freely open to
First it starts as too many immigrants and refugees both legal and illegal. Then it becomes dangerous because amongst those immigrants there are terrorists. So how do we identify that ? Well I will discuss many ways to protect our people and our borders from immigrants, refugees, and terrorists.
Have you ever wondered if Aliens are real? Some people don't and some people do. Well, today I'm going to tell you 3 claims that Aliens are real. People say that they have a connection with Aliens. Aliens are real because of all the evidence they had found about them. Some people believe that aliens are fake because they think all the evidence and the stories people tell are fake. My opinion is that Aliens do exist in this world and trying to learn more about us. Here is some evidence that I think they are real.
Most of society does not see the challenges that people with disabilities go through. I also think that if the world had more resources for those with disabilities we could erase prejudice. For example, more hospitals should provide an ASL interpreter for the patients who cannot understand what the doctors are saying and can’t express their issues to their doctors. All in all, society just needs a better understanding of what people with disabilities go through on a day to day basis.
When you think of an illegal immigrant you may think of a criminal with no morals coming to this country with their only purpose to cause harm to the American people. If this were to be the perception of all immigrants to ever come to the United States we could not be the country we are today. America is a land of opportunity where people come to make a better life for themselves. Without immigrants the United States would not exist. Personally, I would not be here today if my mother did not work her way from Mexico as a young girl to build a better life for herself here in America. She came here with very little, found a job, built herself a life, earned multiple college degrees, got married, had children, and is now living the American Dream…. From illegal immigrant to assistant elementary school principal. It is definitely not fair to say that all immigrants are “bad hombres”, as the American president, Donald Trump once said. The negative connotations that go along with “illegal immigrant” are never anything but bad. The media shines the spotlights on the crimes and awful things some immigrants have done in the past, but never care to included amazing achievements immigrants have made. In fact, Donald Trump's grandfather, Frederick Trump, immigrated here at 16 with the same dream as these dreamers have today; prosper and live The American Dream, and build a better life for themselves and their families.
Our country is supposed to be one about opportunity, neglecting to provide an equal chance for these children to learn would contradict the notion that America is the land of opportunity.
Sadly, that's the harsh reality for many asylum seekers, seeking refuge in Australia as they are arbitrarily detained. Good morning or afternoon. It has been a profound honour to be invited to address you about the eloquently breach of basic human rights asylum seeker face while being detained in our shores. Mandatory detention should be abolished as it causes indiscriminate health risk. Instead, the Australia government should allow asylum seekers to settle into the community. We should be viewing asylum seekers as a humanitarian issue instead of a political one.
I still remember when I met you. That prideful charisma you always carried. How can someone remain so confident being a Mexican immigrant during Trump's election? I often asked myself before I knew your story, before I knew what you had been through.
2017 and still the hate-filled comments a float our children’s heads and our parents ears. It seems we are taking steps back instead of forward. Even in the United States, “The Land of the Free” we hear it by the one who is in Charge. What have you done Mr. Donald Trump? Filling our children’s heads with the ideas of the past. See when we all first got here we came for the same thing, only difference is the year. Yet people are being judged and labeled by the mistakes of the few. We all came for bigger and better things. There is no need to lie, everyone has a “bad apple” in the bunch. But why Mr. President must you label all of us the same.
Our new president, Donald J. Trump, really can fit the bill and build the great wall he plans to. In case you haven't been listening to news or the media the past year and a half then you wouldn’t know about the great controversy of Trumps 2000 mile long wall along the U.S and Mexico border. Trumps wall can and will stop immigration. With a well protected wall immigrants will have an extremely difficult time getting through or over the wall. An increased border patrol presence will make sure any immigrants who manage to get over are taken back. Also with underground tunneling sensors it will be nearly impossible to get under.Trumps wall will put an end to illegal immigration in the U.S.
is a derogatory term given to asylum seekers who arrive in Australia by boat, without obtaining a valid visa or other form of authorisation such as a passport. Most people arriving by boats are facing desperate and life threatening situations in their country of origin, and fear a form of persecution such as torture, murder and imprisonment. These people are often so desperate to flee their corrupt or dangerous countries that they risk their lives to travel to Australia by boat. They endure appalling conditions by the smugglers who often take away any or all forms of documentation. If the boat people refuse these terms than they will most probably be abused, shot or killed. Despite all of these reasons, people decide that these conditions are
For example, using a leftover coffee can for loose nails or screws, or even washing and reusing a plastic zip-loc bag instead of throwing it in the garbage. Thrift shopping is a way of reusing someone else’s unwanted goods. As I spoke about in an earlier speech about thrifting, I included many locations and ways to thrift, also the benefits to the shopper and the donator. One place in particular was shopping at the local boys and girls club. I personally shop there, keeping my eyes open for a good deal. For example, the pair of jeans that I am wearing today was purchased from this store just a few months ago. I paid only $8.00 for this pair of Lucky Jeans and according to buckle.com, a retailer for lucky jeans the retail price is $99.00 that is a savings to me of $91.00.I am not the type to worry about name brands, but quality usually does cost more. If I can get a quality pair of jeans at a fraction on the price, I am glad to shop at the thrift store. I am thankful to the person that made the donation of the lucky jeans and they can benefit from that donation. According to the IRS webpage, IRS. Gov it explains that an individual can donate items like clothing, household furniture and furnishings, a car or boat, even taxidermy. The donations are appraised, by the donator, and recorded. At the time of filing taxes if the donation equals at least $500 for the year, the donator may take advantage of the
With all our knowledge of everything around us, overwhelming as it may be, there are still a lot of aspects that are unknown to even the smartest scientists. Did you know that humans know only 5% of the entire universe? Yes, everything we know about the Earth, the Milky Way, and all the planets is barely even a fourth of what comprises the entirety of the universe. Knowing that, it would be illogical to say that the creatures on Earth are the only forms of life in the universe. Today I will tell you about unidentified object sightings, close
