Immigration, damaging or helpful? Immigration has been a problem in the United States since before the country was established. Many citizens and politicians claim that illegal immigration is a hindrance to the country’s economy because immigrants take American jobs and that they don’t pay taxes. They also agree that our government spends too much money in keeping them out. People on the other side of this argument claim that immigrants help by taking unwanted jobs with very little pay, and in doing that they are helping keep the prices of domestic goods down across the country.
While Richard Milhous Nixon is seen as the worst president in the history of the United States of America, many people and historians also believe he did “one thing right.” That “one thing”0 would be his trip to China or as Richard Nixon himself referred to it -“the week that changed the world”0 However did it really change the world? Or was it just a political move made by the Nixon administration in an election year? Though the visit to China did help in opening up trade and communication, it was useless for President Nixon to personally go to China, and was not a history changing event like it was portrayed. In the year of 1971 it was revealed that a top secret meeting was held in China between America’s top foreign relations officer -Henry
However, illegal immigrants are subject to institutional and societal prejudice for several reasons. First of all, they are perceived as taking jobs from citizens, as well as making use of educational and health services for which many people and the media accuse them of not paying taxes (although, as mentioned, they do). Davidson asserts that, “Illegal immigrants use very little in the way of public programs and contribute to economic microcosms through sales taxes received by local municipalities. If we were to legalize all workers, we could then pull from their income taxes as well. Problem solved.”(Davidson).
However, there are people who are feared it will not be good and has an opposite impact for all concerned. It looks like a win-to-win scenario; it creates a good amount of jobs needed and reduces tariffs that benefit all members involved, but some are concerned about the agreement will benefit some specific groups and some will not. The problem is while the cost of labors in the US is expensive the labor’s cost of neighbor countries is cheaper; this leads to the jobs loss for the American people and workers. For example, Columbia is still one of the most dangerous places on Earth because of the government and its persecutions for those who against it; just like Chinese government. Next, the working condition for Columbian workers is poor and that concerns of some the human right group.
This act made important changes to the United States since the reform following the Great Depression. It made changes in the American financial regulatory environment that affect all federal financial regulatory agencies and almost every part of the nation's finance industries. Even though this may seem as a good thing for our country, many critics believe the reform act is not enough to prevent another financial crisis. I believe this reform act was a major achievement in a way. The economy has gotten better through the years and President Obama has come up with some very beneficial strategies that have helped this country get out of the recession that we were in.
It was also then, where citizens had the highest home ownership in the country’s history. All of these extraordinary achievements are only a few of the many ways Bill Clinton followed the fundamental belief of the common good. Not only did Clinton attain political achievements by believing in the common good of all citizens, but he also believed in equality. Bill Clinton supposed that mending affirmative action was necessary in order to give special consideration, in jobs and college admission, to members of groups that where discriminated against in the past. Moreover, he believed that there is a greater need for race-conscious affirmative action to aim support to small businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.
Illegal immigration is becoming a problem in the United States. When asked what should be done about illegal immigration, most people would say, deport them. While this is a solution it is not a practical one. A solution to illegal immigration is to start billing those counties for the services provided to illegal immigrants in the United States. This is the right choice because if, for example, Mexico is charged for the serves then they may be more willing to fix their own county to make it a more reasonable choice to stay.
Illegal immigration does not have a negative economic impact in the United States as some people would make it seem. This misconception is due to people thinking that the illegal immigrants are stealing the jobs of good citizens leaving them without work. Another misconception is that the workers are taking money from our economy. However both of these reasons are quickly proven unfounded in fact. This topic is of importance to the people of the United States because there are around 12 million illegal immigrants living and working in this nation.
José Gómez Rhetoric September 17, 2014 Illegal Mexican Immigration Illegal immigration is an issue that has been bothering the United States since the early 1900s. Since our countries’ past, racism towards minorities almost felt normal; our country has came a long way and people are finally starting to come around to the fact that minorities aren't going anywhere. The topic seems to be very easily debatable in our society because of the societal biased that comes with illegal immigrants. Some people say that illegal immigration could benefit the United States economy through additional tax revenue; they contend that immigrants have already imprinted
Becoming American Summary Dinesh D’Souza plants a strong point in his essay that he believes that the search for better life does not have to do fully with economical reason, but also it comes from dreams and beliefs a person may have for that better life. He also uses the essay to try to defend America from the talk about immigration only being for money. The reason people immigrate to America for the hopes of “Becoming American” is more about the way the life they have before in other countries. The hardships which include overcrowded transportation, pollution, unsafe drinking water, lack of education for children, and corrupt governments are a reason people look to America for a better life. And citizenship.
