The United States of America is a nation that thrives on diversity and acknowledges the necessity to offer opportunity in order to sustain equality. This country was built from the hard work of immigrants from all over the world to build what is America today. Many people arrive to the United States from their homeland countries both legally and illegally and it has never been such a concern until now. Immigration legal and illegal has pulled in plenty of eyebrow raises, media reports, and arguments on wither it places a positive or negative stain on the United States.

• In 1948 the ‘Empire Windrush’ ship bought many people from Kingston, Jamaica to England so that they could find work. • The majority were young males but there were also a number of old men and families, when they first got to England they were welcomed with open arms. • The law was written so that these new immigrants had the same full rights as current English residents this also encouraged them to move along with filling vacancies in the hospital and transport services that had been a problem since after the war. • The immigration was then made more widespread which meant many North England and London textiles firms took on people from India and Pakistan. • In the late 1950s people started to react to the sudden influx of immigration with ‘no
Immigration Change Over the Years Immigration is a serious and important part of history in the United States. First prior to the late nineteenth century the immigration policies were very easygoing. Most of the Europeans were taking in, only 2% of arrivals at Ellis Island were sent away, some were band for being criminals, mentally unstable, and communist. Most of that 2% were rejected for health reasons. Despite having to pick up their life and leave, the immigrants came in by millions to the United States in the late 19th century and 21st century to build better lives for their families economically, religiously, and educationally.
In the late 19th century and early 20th century the great flow of immigrants arriving in America were attracted by promise of a bright and wealthy future. This was the American Dream: that everyone, no matter where they came from, had a chance of success if they worked hard. Until the 1920s the USA had an ‘open door’ policy which meant that almost anyone could enter the USA. In the 1920s new laws were made to limit the number of immigrants getting into the USA, this was a result of the growing amount of Americans who were against immigration. The USA had tried to limit immigrants before 1900.
Immigrants Belinda Kilduff SOC 120 Introduction to Ethics & Social Responsibility Instructor: Risa Garelick September 22, 2014 Immigration Immigration is when a person moves from one county to another country. There are many reasons individual humans immigrate including employment, political issues, escaping conflict, natural disasters, wars, climate changes, family unification, to avoid persecution, and human trafficking. Mostly people immigrate because, they want to live a life of their dreams. Is it fair to treat human being differently because of the location they were born, or if they are wealthy or poor? Immigration is natural process and has been done since the beginning of time before borders existed.
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.
Long before the term “American immigrant” was inducted into the English vocabulary, the forefathers of America built this country on the idea of freedom from the restrictions of their countries of origin. They built this country on the idea that any one individual could obtain any goal set before them. This is a nation built by immigrants, for immigrants, long before legality came into play. While initial immigration came with relatively low numbers, the possibilities and freedoms offered with immigration into the U.S. changed those numbers quickly. The rapid growth began in the 1820s.
There was a lot of immigration in the USA from 1890’s onwards in the USA for a lot of reasons. There were both push and pull factors on why people immigrated. People who immigrated came from all around the world from places such Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland and Russia. One of the main reasons why anybody is drawn to America is the idea of the American Dream, to own their own piece of land, to reinvent themselves and escape their old life and finally to have freedom. Many people came to America because getting there overseas was cheap and before 1917 they were almost guaranteed to be able to enter as the USA is the “land of the immigrants” and up until 1917 they had an open border policy.
Many tribes shared similar one. With the increasing influence of European cultures, native cultures of American Indians were replaced and a new value system dominated the region. This new culture was introduced from the outside and was able to explore more quickly the environment that Indians were used to. The new residents had no great concern to maintain the resources because they moved to other places when they were exhausted. Land were extremely important to European settlers, because in most countries of Europe land meant
The United States was built by many races that emigrated from there home countries, which ultimately developed into one of the most prosperous countries of all time. The success of this country with various races performing the labor and taking part in the government has created a demand for admittance and a dream for people across the world. The demand for entrance into America is at such a high level that people are finding ways to enter illegally. With the illegal alien population raising it is taking a large toll on the disbursement of tax money. As immigration is becoming a more widespread problem, in America , it needs to bolster border security and increase punishment for both eiders and offenders.
