Immigration Immigrants in todays’ society come to America for a better life, opportunities, and to be free. The Hispanics will do whatever it takes to any extreme to get beyond our borders to have the possibilities we ensure. The traffic of illegal immigrants in America currently is a problem we face because, they have taken the jobs some Americans could obtain to support their families in todays economy. We must find extract the reasons these immigrants flock to America because they’re taking jobs away from Americans during this horrid economy. Illegal immigrants have broken the law by sneaking across the borders of the United States of America.
He views this problem as a threat to America and states that the continued migration of Mexican immigrants “looms as a unique and disturbing challenge” (Huntington). Utilizing a negative tone of voice insinuates a biased point of view that creates a predisposed negative image about all Mexican immigrants both legal and illegal. Furthermore, Huntington disputes that Mexican immigration, nationally and culturally, harms our country’s
Immigration patterns are different between the Mexican born and the people born in Central America. There is approximately 374,000 Central Americans living in America by way of the Temporary Protected Status due to natural disasters in Central America. The immigration debate seems to concentrate more heavily on the migration from Mexico to the United States more than any other area whilst it is comparable to the immigration of Central-South America. While some Central-South Americans immigrated to American by way of trade ships, the majority of Central-South Americans arrived by way of the Mexico-American border. Familism is a common theme among Hispanic groups such as the Central-South Americans.
Proposition 187 called for the denial of health, education, and social services to those people who are not registered citizens of the United States, or to those who are not legal immigrants. The requirements in order for this to be carried out however were great, requiring administrators and law enforcement to check on people’s citizenship status. Proposition 187 recognized illegal immigration as a serious problem that
He only presents one premise, that laws facilitate the segregation between smokers and nonsmokers, and consequently allow organized crimes harassing smokers to occur. The grounds for his premises are weak, as he does not provide concrete and reliable information to support his cause. Scott’s basic premise is that laws encourage the violation of smokers’ rights. He begins his argument with, “The Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, and a host of anti-discrimination laws notwithstanding...” With that commencement, Scott proves that he does not understand the concept of discrimination. He continues by claiming that denying housing and employment for smokers is a form of public hostility.
Immigrant Social Structure Theories The social structure theories that best describe the circumstances immigrants encounter when leaving their native countries, is social disorganization and cultural deviance theories. Immigrants who live in disorganized countries and poor villages have a risk of their communities being high in crime. Due to the lack of businesses, declining populations, and deteriorating structures the social disorganization perspectives are easily seen. These factors along with the lack of resources are enough to make immigrants leave all they’ve ever known at a chance for a better life. Cultural deviance theories for immigrants exist because they feel breaking laws instead of conforming to laws are their only hope to survive.
Isn’t the federal law in charge of immigration? Why must our local officials then deal with immigration issues? We are creating a vicious circle of hate, what guarantees the citizens that police officials will not violate or take advantage of the power that they have been given? This new law is “giving police officers a green light to harass anyone who looks or sounds foreign” explained Alessandra Soler Meetze, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona. The question again arises, how will the officer detect these illegal immigrants?
Illegal votes minimize citizen’s rights in the Constitution and it undermines our democracy that was established and preached by the founding fathers; therefore a solution for this loophole should be quickly tied and these actions no longer tolerable or allowed under the 14th amendment. As citizens of the US, we have a right stated in the 1st amendment to be able to express our opinions; our values and beliefs should be directly represented through the voting process. Although future elections are predicted to be heavily influenced by this growing minority population, politicians are beginning to apprehend the negative brunt illegal immigration has bestowed upon our country as this could be a small factor in the current struggling economy. Congressman Tom Tancredo has vast prospective ideas on how to reform our immigration system. By working across the aisle a feasible and successful solution to the straining liability and encumbrances may be obtained to make our country incorrupt and hospitable to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness to the citizens of the United State of
My assumption that all illegal immigrants were Mexican migrant workers was proven to be wrong. This was evident as events such as 9/11 and drug running came to the forefront. Through this, I found my point of view shifting in favor towards visa overstay regulation and implementation of an interstate connected National ID program. In developing a reasonable solution to the immigration question, I weighed the pros and cons of several different perspectives and solutions. I recognized my beginning assumptions and inferences were a superficial approach to the problem and that more educated thought had to be implemented.
Whether by choice, by necessity, or both, they are also Americans." Americans have been constantly fed fear from policymakers and the media. Especially with this current election, we have been told that immigration "present a significant threat to national security and public safety", yet, the census data shows men ages 18-49, immigrants were one-half to one-fifth as likely to be incarcerated as those born in the United States. The media also only portrays the negatives of immigration, instilling fear to the viewer while demoralizing innocent immigrants. If the media portrays the good, showing the humanization of immigrants, viewers wouldn't be as instilled with fear.
