Around the mid-19th to the 20th century, myriads of immigrants flocked to the U.S. seeking better job opportunities,or searching for religious freedom. U.S. citizens were fearful, envious, and willing to exclude immigrants who came to the US as they were viewed as an economic threat to the society. They believed that these immigrants were racially, morally and intellectually inferior to them and as such did not see or treat as their equals. These dysfunctions lead to severe and harsh treatment of immigrants. Historically, the three major immigrant groups that faced the most discrimination during this era were the Asians, German, and the Irish. American citizen’s fear of job secureness led to the resentment and discriminatory treatment towards Asian Immigrants. They believed that the majority of the Asian American immigrants were taking too many of their jobs. As such, the U.S. government decided that it would be necessary to restrict the amount of Asian Americans, in order to keep the U.S. citizens from being unemployed. The U.S. government passed numerous laws, banning Asian American immigrants from the United States. One distinct law that they passed was the 1922 Cable Act, this law “stripped a female citizen of citizenship, if she married an alien unable to become a citizen.”(Lutz 7).The law was basically passed to prevent Asian immigrants from obtaining citizenship by marrying a female U.S citizen.In fact, the government believed that female citizens that engaged in this
On the topic of immigration, Donald Trump has stated, "But you have people coming in and I 'm not just saying Mexicans, I 'm talking about people that are from all over that are killers and rapists and they 're coming into this country." On the same issue, Hillary Clinton has said the following: “I’ve talked about undocumented immigrants hundreds of times and fought for years for comprehensive immigration reform… We are a country built by immigrants and our diversity makes us stronger as a nation — it’s something to be proud of, celebrate, and defend.” As shown through the radically different perspectives highlighted in the aforementioned passages, the topic of immigration policy has quickly become the most prominent discussion of the upcoming election. How then do we evaluate the immigration policies proposed by the likely Presidential nominees, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, given our country’s founding principles? The answer to this question lies in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Our nation’s legal documents should be used to evaluate their immigration views because they are the basis of our country and the values America embodies. Given America’s founding principles of equality, freedom and equal protection under the law as stated in our country’s Declaration of Independence and Constitution, extreme protectionist immigration laws contradict our nation’s founding principles. In comparison to Donald Trump’s overt and impractical anti-immigrant
The 1924 law reaffirmed the 1880s legislation barring Chinese immigrants and added Japanese and other Asians to the list of the excluded. But it left open immigration from the Western Hemisphere. Farmers in the Southwest demanded continued access to cheap agricultural labor, and during the 1920s some 500,000 Mexicans crossed the border. In addition, Congress in 1924 passed the Indian Citizenship Act, which extended suffrage and citizenship to all American Indians. Indian veterans of World World I had already been made citizens, but now Congress deemed every Indian worthy of participating in American democracy.
“Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity,” says the 43 Governor of Florida. While being only 13% of the population, Immigrants encompass 16% of the labor force, thus adding to our gross domestic product or GDP. Some People may think that immigration has a negative impact on our economy. These people believe that by Immigrants having a high employment rate, native-born citizens are being pushed out of jobs, but that’s not true.
Canadian 's immigration policies have been known to discriminate based on ethnicity. are speaks a lot to how Canadians shifted in accepting more immigrants, not necessarily because of an expanded view and approval for other ethnicities, but for labor and economic reasons. The post-war era required skillful workers, and now that European migration stalled Canada removed tightly bound racist policies ( Source 2). Before and during World War two, Canada 's immigration Acts particularly the Chinese Immigration Act (1923) were both extremely exclusive and racist. From 1900 to 1965 Canada 's immigration policy favored the British, American and European immigrants. This is what has given Canada the narrative of a "white man 's country". It wasn 't until Diefenbaker and Pearson government 's revised the immigration acts and removed Anglo-European preference. Once immigration expanded to non-European countries Canadians thought their racist roots had perished, however, racist attitudes are still alive.
This article focuses on the healthcare seeking behaviour of Korean immigrants in Toronto. Also it discusses the transnational healthcare activities with their home country Korea, for various reasons like individual characteristics, the barriers of accessing local healthcare system, etc. The new environment has brought multi-dimensional effects to immigrants’ health. Their health is being influenced compositionally and contextually during the process of accessing healthcare system. Immigrants are then putting efforts to maintain and use the transnational ties for their needs in managing their health and well-being, which reveals the current existing barriers on reaching the healthcare system.
Immigration is a controversial social issue because people are coming to the United States illegally. Americans fear that immigrants will bring unwanted problems, danger and crime into our society. The United States has an issue with immigrants from Mexico and Canada. These illegal immigrants are bringing crime and drugs into the US. In an article posted by The Washington Times, Americans claim that “immigrants hurt US culture and our economy.” Many Americans have different opinions on immigration, although most of them are bad. As a society, we can not risk all of these problems coming in. Americans need to come together and solve these issues concerning immigration.
There are daily examples of discrimination and oppression throughout the world, but one of the most substantial examples is in North Korea. North Korea is an Asian country ruled by a totalitarian dictatorship, although it calls itself a socialist state. The Jong family has ruled North Korea for three generations since the Korean War. The country is said to be a cult as the country’s citizens are forced to worship the countries leaders, discouraged from holding religion and often punished from doing so, and are not allowed to leave the country. Additionally, in North Korea there are no human rights. People are killed or sent to labor camps for even the smallest infractions. North Korea remains one of the most repressive authority’s states on the world. A 2014 United Nations Commission of Inquiry (COI) report on human rights in North Korea stated that systematic, widespread, and gross human rights violations committed by the government included murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortion, and other sexual violence, and constituted crimes against humanity (McCurry,2017). Under international pressure North Korea always denies these allegations, but through defectors and satellite images the evidence is clear. Time and time again North Korea has violated human rights. North Korea is a superior example of oppression and discrimination because of the countries laws and judicial system, and the treatment of North Korean citizens.
The Restriction of Immigration in the United States Immigration should be restricted in the United States. There are many political, social, and economic reasons why restrictions should be put on immigration. The United States Government and the welfare of its citizens are chaotic enough, without having to deal with the influx of thousands of new immigrants each year. Along with the myriad immigrants to the U.S., come just as many economic problems. Some of these problems include unemployment, crime, and education.
Robert Morris writes a book about the essentials of Church growth and it's development. Having made that statement, the book achieves its own manner of possessing small nuggets of wisdom. Although, that pill was extremely hard to want to swallow as Robert Morris' book is comprised of the typical attitude of mega church pastors even down to the organizational community approach needed to guide a church, all of this is exceedingly evident in part three. The premise of this book is good that we would want our church's to be blessed and be a blessing. Though the premise was good and had good intention, he tends to have shortsighted view based upon the way he envisions church versus the holistic view of what church should be as a whole.
The risk for organizations during this phase is to assess for good yet a limited set of qualities in potential church planters. Current tools are helpful, but they are lacking. What they are lacking causes a problem because what is missing in the gap is not emphasized during the earliest stages of church planter formation. What is being emphasized, in other words, assessed is being communicated as a value such as skills, ability, knowledge but what about a planter’s posture towards God, the church, and culture? Church planting organizations will often teach and train about what the purposes of the church are and what the planter needs to do in those areas but without an assessment of their current preferences
A successful church plant must be located within the community that is being served. Malphurs states that “For your unsaved, unchurched community, the church’s
Canada has a bias towards eurocentric residents when it comes to immigrants. People hailing from America, or European have the best chance at immigration, while those from South America, Africa and Asia were given more hurdles to overcome( Makarenko).Canadian Immigrant laws deny Asian refugees safety due to a racist perspective on their status of need, which leads to a second class life should they make it to Canada. The Government has a history of racism towards Asians in Canada. As shown through the Chinese Head taxing, the Japanese internment camps, and currently through the rejection of North Korean refugees.
With the founding of the United States government, many Americans have expressed a variety of attitudes towards those who differ from the majority culture. Furthermore, as can be seen throughout America 's history, one can pull many example of how Americans have acted towards the "other". For instance, "many Americans began to fear that the immigrants had been coming faster than they could become good Americans and be made part of American life" which provides a way of seeing how Americans felt about those traveling into the country at that time. Moreover, these attitudes towards different types of cultures were placed into policy making, religions, and languages that differed from the majority.
