American society, likewise any other society, fears greatly that anything unknown, such as a person or an idea, will suddenly appear in their peaceful life, will not be assimilated and as a result will contribute to the distraction of their American identity. Given that US is a materialism-based culture, which contradicts

However, the thought that another

Sarah Connors in the Terminator films and Ellen Ripley in the Alien films, serve as excellent examples.

    “The Framing of Immigration” (Draft #2) The authors George Lakoff and Sam Ferguson in the article “The Framing of Immigration”, claim that the United States of America has poor and inefficient discussions on immigration because the nation takes this broad subject and wrongfully simplifies it by framing immigration.
