Some people oppose the DREAM Act because they think it encourages and rewards illegal immigrants and will attract other illegal immigrants creating migrations of whole families to enter into the U.S. Some Americans believe this Act is unfair because they may have to pay full tuition at state universities and colleges when immigrant students will have easier access to lower tuition to college because they are poor or minority. (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
“Imagination… can lead to moral clarification.”(1) Savant believes that we must try to imagine why an illegal immigrant chooses to come illegally before we make a judgment call. He goes on to tell two stories of two different, yet similar illegal immigrants and their (though illegal choice) morally correct choice. He closes in stating that “The survival and growth of our own civilization may well depend upon our imagining better.”(2). In other words, to achieve a better society we must imagine a better society. What Savant fails to provide in his article though, is both sides of immigration.
Future is the word that immigrants plaster in their mind. That’s why the Shimerdas and others come to America, to get a better future. However, a better future does not come to you in a nice big present with a bow, you have to earn it. When immigrants do come to America, it is like starting all over. That could be a good thing, but it could also be a bad thing.
In my research I came across the following questions that lead me think what reason does the government have to not pass the DREAM Act. My first thought was why does the government try to deport or imprison educated undocumented students? Then this lead to think what does the other side think? I came up with the con of why should we reward or praise an undocumented student who came here illegally? Personally I am in favor of these students and I wonder if we educate many undocumented students why do we not allow them to later on take up a job, obtain legal status, or at least gain a work permit?
For this reason, one advantage of immigration for the United States is the increase in diversity of cultures all over the country. The United States is commonly seen as an immigrant nation, a common ground where everyone is welcome to work hard, improve living conditions, and chase what we call the American dream. It's true that immigration has always been an important part of American life, but in reality the U.S. has become strict about who can legally enter its borders. Of course, for every lawful immigrant in the United States, there are many more who try to enter illegally. Illegal immigration occurs when foreign individuals break U.S. immigration laws by illegally entering or residing in the country.
Illegal immigrants work the hard jobs in this country as they take the jobs that they can get. Now, I am not glorifying illegal immigrants on any account, I believe that they should have immigrated to the United States through legal means, I believe they should need to apply for green cards and pay taxes. The point I am trying to make is that, the illegal immigrants do difficult work in this country that nobody would take if it was offered (the stereotyped migrant work, factory jobs, etc. ), so why do people complain (“Illegal
Argumentative Essay The American people don't have any problems with seasonal workers. Those are the workers who do the jobs that most of the American citizens don't want to do or are physically unable to do them. The concerns rise when seasonal workers try to steal the good jobs that citizens should have the first chance to. If the seasonal workers greatly contribute to the country, congress should reform the visa system and give them a chance to advance in the United States by making easier acceptance. There are unpleasant aspects of immigration, which includes the hardships faced to reach America and the conflict to gain acceptance.
Probably one of the most common is economic migration, as many people immigrate to another country looking for more income and better living standards. At present this type of migration typically occurs from less developed to more developed countries and in many cases, these immigrants enter or remain illegally in the country. We may want to emigrate for political persecution, ethnic or religious or to escape war or unstable political situations. In some cases immigration is associated with professions or jobs, such as religious missionaries, employees of multinational corporations or Foreign Service employees. In the case of scientists, is, in some cases, expected or even required, as part of his career studying or working in countries other than the country of origin.
When foreigners immigrate to the USA, it’s usually solely to make a better life for their family. Lastly, many complain that immigrants come over to the USA and take “our” jobs, but that is not true at all. Immigrants almost all the time take jobs that Americans don not want. Colonists immigrated to the United States voluntarily; they helped mold this country to be what it is today. Colonists put laws and rules into play to create the law and political system we have today.
Individuals from all around the globe throughout times past have immigrated to America so they could have the chance to live a free and better life. They arrived with the mentality to work earnestly as well as bring in money for their loved ones, but they were undoubtedly by no means prepared to be confronted with the reality that some people in the U.S. at no time wanted them to arrive in the U.S. in the first place. There was a feeling of anger and even hate steered towards them, and the viciousness of hatred crimes that came along with the racial discrimination spurned these feelings further. A collective way of discerning racism is that of a set of beliefs about the unfairness of races, wherein some are considered inferior to others (Gracia, 2010). Racism predominately happens when a person from one race views another person from a different race in an adverse behavior which can sometimes involve physical and emotional violence.
