Statistics show that about 69,975 people were refugees and had entered the United States in the year of 2014. Most of them were shown from the following countries: Iraq, Burma, Somalia, and Bhutan (Mossaad 1). Over the years, the United States and other countries have tried many ways to block out the immigrants from coming into the countries but none of the laws or restrictions have stop the immigrants from coming in completely. At this time, President Obama said, “the amount of people crossing the border illegally is at its lowest since the 1970’s”. That must mean America is doing something right. The current US Immigration policies should not be reformed because the United States government is putting
Globalization and its consequences have been topics of discussion in the recent past with people wondering if the globalization is having positive or adverse effects on the global economy. Most of the supporters of globalization have always claimed that global free markets expand opportunities for the poor by providing job opportunities and economic growth in the developing countries. However,
Some view globalization as being inevitable and key to our economic future. It has the potential of making societies richer through trade, and creates knowledge and understanding to people around
For some people, globalization is so feared it is synonymous with world destruction. In the end, for all we know, maybe this will be proven before it is over. In reality however, there are many good things that have resulted from globalization(1, Premise). Let’s for a moment focus on the economy, even though there are many other advantages that have been brought forward that will also be discussed. Many Americans do not appreciate how efficient our markets are, in this case efficiency in reference to supply and demand is number one. These efficient markets allow economies to grow. As many have learned in a global world, when one economy grows, it spurs growth in all the other economies
Regions across the United States have been changed dramatically by the immigration trends over time. The region of Southern California is no different. When the people in an area change that areas culture is going to change as well, southern California is a great example of that. Yet while changes in history do not change the physical lay out of the area it does affect the culture tremendously. The culture in Southern California specificly is a mix of multiple people making it extremely diverse depending on the area that you are in.
In this paper I will talk about the factors that affect immigration in the United States as well as the way globalization has improved and affect our economy. This country was first establish by all the immigrates who came here in hopes of better futures but many have forgotten their roots and how they became a member of this nation. Globalization, which is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as the development of an increasingly global and economy marked by the free trade. The two terms have a lot in common since one affects the other and vice-versa. Immigration and Globalization have significantly impacted modern society in many ways at times they have been positive outcomes as well as negative. The best way to describe these
In Texas June 5, 2015, A Salvadoran, Mauricio Hernandez, was sentenced to 50 years in prison and faces deportation after his term for raping his own baby (Immigration Issues 2015, Par. 3). Three illegal Immigrants, Uriel Ramirez-Perez, Darwin Zuniga-Rocha, and Eliseo Mateo Perez, were sentenced to time served in jail and deportation after prison term for first-degree sexual abuse (Immigration Issues 2015, Par.10). What do these two incidence have in common; they were here in this country illegally. With the number of Central Americans crossing over the border illegally the crime rate as reflected in this occurrence. However, these crimes are not a representative of all illegal Immigrants but the numbers and crimes reveals otherwise. Since President Ronald Reagan signed a sweeping immigration bill into law in 1986 (Kirkwood, Par.1). It gave an incentive for others to come to America illegally and the U.S. failing to regain control of the borders since then (Kirkwood, Par.11). Due to this bill, that provided amnesty to approximately 3 million illegal immigrants (Kirkwood, P.12). In which allowed an influx of daily illegal entry into the U.S. with laws that allowed them to be deported due crimes committed while in the America. Illegal Immigrants should not be allowed amnesty because of drugs, the increase of crime and poverty.
During the last decade of the twentieth century, the word ‘globalization’ has become an increasingly prominent feature of political, social, and economic discussion in academic and policymaking circles, as well as in the media. The processes and outcomes of globalization drew attention and debates that had one thing in common. The research shows that nearly everyone agrees that globalization is a trend that is changing the face of the world, and as a result the world society lives in a more ‘globalized’ world. Nearly two and a half decades passed since 1990s, and studies have been conducted to examine the causes and consequences of globalization. Moreover, nearly every person experiences some type of globalization and can testify firsthand the effects it has on their life, society, and the state. The analysis of the effects that globalization dynamics have on the world society indicates that globalization has a significant positive impact via spreading opportunities and wealth across nations, stimulating innovation and productivity, enhancing the economic development of poorer countries, and helping to improve living standards.
It is known that the economy is definitely effected by globalization, but not always in a negative way. In a sense, the world revolves around some situations dealing

That this was also the decade in which globalization came into full swing is more than a minor inconvenience for its advocates” (Rodrick). If globalization is supposed to present an advantage to developing countries, why have there been so many setbacks? Indeed, both sides will have its winners and losers regardless of which side of the development coin they live on, but for the most part globalization has lifted millions out of poverty, improved the standard of living, and increased life expectancy rates all while keeping developed nations relatively competitive to their developing counterparts. Globalization’s value is that it seeks to create an economic equilibrium in the world, where parties are free from barriers and can benefit from one another through a more efficient allocation of resources. This allows all participating nations to contribute to an integrated economy and where all nations willing to embrace globalization have the potential to benefit. Regardless, the path to successful integration to the global economy has not always been easy. There is contention towards globalization as some argue that it is detrimental to developed nations, while many developing countries that were forced to hastily open up their markets and integrate failed. However, if implemented properly, globalization has proven that it can benefit all parties involved and that the potential gains outweigh the losses.
Globalization has had both a positive and negative impact throughout the world. An interconnectedness within the world where complicated issues can arise creating an unevenness that can contribute to a societies as well as the individuals happiness in life (El-Ojelli, 2006:p1).

Supporters of globalization argue that it has the potential to make this world a better place to live in and solve some of the deep-seated problems like unemployment and poverty. But the opponents general complaint about globalization is that it has made the rich richer while making the non-rich poorer. “It is wonderful for managers, owners and investors, but hell on workers and nature.”
