(Costa) Most Americans point out the bad and disadvantages that immigration brings, but immigration does bring benefits. When immigrants come to America they are not given or placed in high end jobs, they take whatever they can get. That shows how determined and desperate these people are in coming to this country and trying to start a new life. Immigration analyst Daniel Costa says immigrants are harder working then most of the average American because they make more of an effort to stay in this country and they see that by living here it is a privilege and not a right, which some Americans take for granite. (Costa) Immigrants contribute back to the U.S by expanding their culture and ethnic traits, which creates a more diverse America.
At the heart of both generations’ political activism is a strident belief in the power of democracy and the recognition that in all important aspects the current socioeconomic order is anything but democratic. Ultimately, the youth activism of the 1960s yielded little substantive results, due in part to their failure to connect with other disenfranchised groups and advocate their views effectively. Ironically, many former youth activists of the 1960s are now firmly entrenched in The Establishment they once derided, defending and facilitating its exploitation of the many by the few. In contrast, as the Occupy movement grows and matures it forms alliances with other organizations committed to radical social change, demonstrating a humility and seriousness on their part that was missing from much of 1960s youth

Today, we Dominicans are lucky to be able to express and write our criteria without being afraid of being killed liked in 1930-1961. The Dominican Republic was under the dictatorial regime of Rafael Leonidas Trujillo for 30 years. Many things have changed since then, but not all of the changes have been a pro. The main changes have been in the economy, the countries social safety, and of course, the government. During Trujillos government, the country’s economy was at its best.
Democracy slowly disappears when decisions are carried out mostly by corporate and managerial elite- says Buchanan. Decisions are to the benefit of its people; elites can only control society up to a point. Even with this basic control over society, it is hard to send undocumented people back to their countries of origin when they have been living in that land for many generations; in other words, they have become Americans. Society is managed through several aspects whether corporate rule or through popular demand; it is impossible to solely blame elites for the rapid decay of American culture; society simply changes and so do its
When Great Britain governed early America they taxed the, not just because they were in debt, they wanted to make money. They also imported tobacco from America. When America went overseas to expand to Hawaii they didn’t just annex Hawaii they added all the sugar plantations on Hawaii. Also sort of like Great Britain we made money off of Hawaii’s sugar. I think that if your going to be imperialistic you have to justify your self in overseas expansion and economic boosts.
We, (including myself as a Hispanic) did not come to this country to cause fear; we are just seeking better opportunities for our families. Borders patrollers are against having illegal immigrants in this country. They state the illegal immigrants are one of the main reasons why American’s are losing their jobs. These, so-called, Border Patrollers are against, for what is to them an illegal act and a threat to our country. They are against illegal border crossing because they do not know what it is not having any food, clothes, house, or money to survive.
Then we can check the persons’ documents to make sure their legally here. We need to come up with a fool proof system of making sure immigrants with the American dream can stay. They should not be deported, but instead they should be made to go through the process of legal entry into the United States. All of us who live in America have adopted this great country. Illegal immigration takes place over the world; the main reason is because people want to have a better life, hell, even a chance at life itself.
American Imperialism HIS204 Eric Reed July 12, 2011 American Imperialism Imperialism became a part of the world in the nineteenth century. America decided to become an imperial nation in the late nineteenth century. Imperialism was adopted because of interests in other countries. The United States became more involved with other countries due to imperialism. Imperialism was popular in America but not everyone agreed with the policy.
Amnesty The illegal immigrant issue in America is an ever increasing issue. Bills have been sent to be passed to the president and have been declined. The issue now is becoming more and more of a problem, when our borders go unprotected. The problems that illegal immigration causes to a society and a nation can be harmful. By granting these people amnesty, we can counter some of these problems and provide a system in which people can be treated fairly and not be forced to be paid less and soak up the benefits of living inside the United States without contributing.
