At the end he wants a better future for all the people who live in United States of America. And they hope that this immigration reform can be done in 2013 that’s will be the priority in 2013. Immigrant believes in our president Barack Obama.
As an old saying goes: “Everything is a two-edged sword!” although the U.S. has been benefits a lot form the upcoming immigrant, there are a lot of social and political problem associate with it. As politician often put when they made the speech: “current immigration system in the United States is broken.” There are several reasons why the immigration system in the U.S. needed to be reformed: families are separated, immigrant workers are exploited, people died when they try to across the border, and the discrimination against immigrants.
Why the US Should Have Open Borders Open or closed borders? This seems to be a topic that many people want to listen to. We all have reasons why we should close the border as well as open it, but has anyone really thought about those arguments and noticed that they don’t make sense? In addition, there are much better reasons to keep them open:
The immigration reform, an important issue for the U.S. government has accelerated significantly in the past few years. It has been debated between the democratic and republican senators to reform a framework for the immigration. President Obama gave a speech to push for an immigration reform in favor of undocumented 11 million immigrants in the USA, as well as a road map for their legal citizenship. It has also been suggested that a sub citizenship could be an option instead of providing full citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants.
This relates to the human rights issue of immigrants due to enrique’s mom heading for the states to better her life. She was a maid , so therefore she didn’t really make that much money. She hoped for a better life and she thought she would be able to do this by moving to the states. In her eyes the only way to do this was heading for america.
As a nation of immigrants, the United States has improved significantly from the values, talents, and contributions of immigrants. People from all over the world seek the United States for just one honest reason, a better life and future. Most of the immigrant families and their children come from Mexico, Central and South America, and even Asia. These people enter the United States via one of three modes of entry, legal immigration, illegal entry, and as refugees. Because of their legal status, many immigrants are illegible to receive any type of public services such as healthcare and public education. This is something that has been going on for years, and many Americans feel that it is a fair thing to do. By actually providing illegal immigrants to have access to public services the United States could benefit a lot from it, starting with a healthier and safer environment, also, having access to public education will help the economy in the long run, and lastly, after obtaining a college degree, it is extremely possible for them to get a good paying job.
“We should be able to refuse immigrants. There are a lot of illegal’s that are taking jobs that actual Americans need in the current economic conditions, plus they cause our taxes to go up because we have to pay for their health insurance and they might need welfare so they get all the money taken from our pay so they don’t have to work. They should have to speak English too, if I went to their country, no one would be taking care of me and making sure that I can find the bathroom, or feeding my kids with their money” (Aquino 2016).
This is an incredible story about a young Mexican boy who went through so much to achieve something he never thought he would. The tragedy of his infant sister’s death and an economic crisis in 1970s made him take this life changing chance – to cross the border to the United States. His cousin used to tell him that he would spend all his life working in the fields, Quinones-Hinojosa was ready to accept his fate, he did not know English language, did not have working permit, what else could he expect? So he started working in the fields, picking fruits and vegetables, pulling weeds until his hands were bleeding, hands that perform brain surgeries today. He discovered that being a poor immigrant without an education in a foreign country will make people treat you differently. At this point in his life, he decided to prove to
Immigrants aren’t given the rights that they should be. Throughout history, immigrants haven’t been given the opportunities they deserve. When certain races came to America, they were always unwanted. New immigration process would benefit many people.
On November 20, 2014, Former President of United States of America, Barack Obama gave a speech on immigration at the White House. This topic concerned ample families in the United States of America, as a lot of them are not legally residing in the states and the other families who are citizens and documented are threatened by the increasing number of illegal immigrants because they might become their competition in employment, education and business opportunities. Barack Obama Addressed these concerns in a unique perception that enlightened the audience and gave examples and ideas that led them to view this problem under a different light that isn’t necessarily negative. The president’s connection with the audience was not only logical and
He also said that he was going to use his power of executive orders to reform immigration. If Congress does not make the laws then there are no laws to execute. This executive order may help more than five million “undocumented” immigrates residing in the United States along with countless, “Dreamers” (immigrates brought to the U.S. as children). Mr. Obama believes that the system cannot get much worse and see his executive order as a way to reform. The President reminded the other two branches of the government that Congress is to pass laws while the judiciary has to translate those laws using the Constitution of the United States. Mr. Obama does not intent to change laws concerning immigration but he does plan to use those laws to support undocumented persons and children. The President said, “We didn’t raise the Statue of Liberty with her back to the world; we did it with her light shining as a beacon to the world.” He put Congress and the Courts on notice that he would use his power for reform. The United States supported an immigration bill that mapped out a way for millions of illegal’s a way to become citizens. Most of the
As a legal immigrant and international student who has been through the many processes to receive a visa to study and live in the United States, looking for a better opportunity and a better education, I am aware of the hardships and difficulties that many of the legal and illegal immigrants have to overcome in order to become legal immigrants. My perception on migration issues was already shocking, but I never had the chance to read and get to know through a book, the real stories of individuals who have encounter problems during their lives. Fish’s story is one of the most shocking ones. Fish was an amazing goalkeeper for “Los Jets” who had struggled a lot during his past, and once he crossed the border in order to find a better life, he left everything he achieved behind, and he crossed the border back to Mexico to visit his grandmother who was sick and died later. His example made me appreciate more the fact that I am a very lucky woman because I was given an opportunity to come to the United States and become a better
Immigration is a controversial topic among many people in the United States today. A lot of people from different countries often settle in the United States in search of jobs, freedom or a better life in general. The United States has become a hot spot for immigrants because it
Our nation’s immigration policy should be clear and cut-throat, meaning that the federal government needs to create policies that can be enforce by law officials without any repercussions or having difficulty of being constitutional. The only reason that America is having difficulty of illegal immigration or immigration overall is because we don’t want to face the public scrutiny that could come of have deportation or “unfair” treatment of the families of the immigrants in America. I believe that America should deport all illegal immigrants however the immigrant that was deported can apply to reinstate themselves back into America. I understand this could be lengthy process, however policy needs to be in place and this is the only way that the federal government can repair this immigration problem. To enable you to understand my point-of-view of immigration policies, you have to understand that this problem that
The topic of immigration is a very touchy in America. Some Americans are all for the idea of legalization. Others are adamantly against it. However, most Americans have never even looked into the topic of legalization. They don’t know the pros and the cons of legalizing immigrants from different countries on the planet. Though most are ignorant to the topic, others are very passionate about it. They either fight for it or they fight against it. Immigrants come to the United States from all over the world and contribute to the economy in various ways, which is the main reason that immigration should be legalized.
