If the media portrays the good, showing the humanization of immigrants, viewers wouldn't be as instilled with fear. Both of my parents had a dream before moving to the United States. They dreamt of a better life, a life free of struggle and safety. Today, they still happily reside in Bismarck, ND and have left their mark in the community. "Before arriving here, I thought life would be easier, but it's not.
Corey Johnson Brian Rafuse HISTORY 2010 LX9 November 20, 2012 Causes of the American Revolution The American Revolution was a war between the thirteen colonies and Great Britain due to the unlawful taxes and policies that were enforced. Great Britain had been in a war with France in previous years and was losing money because of it; therefore, the country needed finances to rebuild the losses and to put the country back to its original position before the war. Because of these needs, Great Britain began to variously tax certain things that were used frequently throughout the country, such as: trading, tea, paper, etc. This upset many of the people in the country to the extent of wanting to separate and call themselves their own country. This idea, though pragmatic in my opinion, wasn’t as sensible to some people that wanted to stay a part of Great Britain and wanted to be loyal to the country, hence being called “Loyalists.” The people that were for the separation were known as Patriots, for they stood up for themselves and wanted to have a better democratic country, which is where they would truly represent the country rather than the Parliament dictating everything without consent.
Illegal Immigration Making or Breaking Elections In the last decade, illegal immigration has become a national concern as it continues to nuisance our economy, breach social problems and risk our country’s security. Aside from these crucial qualms that loom above our governments platform, there is a hidden consequence of our permeable borders that goes unnoticed. The outcomes of our country’s crucial elections are falsifier. Some illegal aliens have eagerly participated in voter fraud which misrepresents our democracy; but others that merely occupy a space within our borders, affect apportionment and electoral votes only by their presence in the United States. Illegal immigration has become a controversial issue between politicians and

Voting is important because it allows individuals their rights as humans to express their opinions.
Joseph Campbell Civil disobedience Civil disobedience is the act of violating the law in order to make others aware of personal disagreement. There has been much civil disobedience throughout the history of the world and more importantly, the United States, which have changed laws to better the lives of society. Such iconic civil disobedience that we have witnessed throughout our own history in the United States are things like the Boston Tea Party, and the actions of both Rosa Parks and Susan B. Anthony. Historically, has civil disobedience been successful at changing the laws for the betterment of society as a whole? I believe that it has in more ways than one.
Calling it Quits Divorce plays a big role in modern day America, and unfortunately divorce rates have continued to increase over the past decade. Divorce is often perceived as a negative topic for obvious reasons such as causing damage to the family, traumatizing the children in the family and other psychological effects it has on people involved. However, both of the two articles I researched discuss divorce and its negative psychological effects; one of the articles differs in that it focuses on the ecological aspects of divorce instead. Jacob Duchaine wrote “An Argument Against Divorce” making claims against divorce and its negativity using biblical references and the stance that “No one takes anything seriously anymore, even marriage”(1).

Habeas Corpus has a long history of protecting an individual(s) from unlawful detainment, but during war time habeas corpus hasn’t at all times given or applied to individuals whom are detained (Tyler, A.
Title Page The War that Made America US History to 1877 It is accurate to say that the French and Indian War shaped America. When the war was being fought, several key things transpired to help develop this country: the colonists defined their own identity as a community, conflicts between colonists and Britain escalated, and the relationship between America and Britain strained as the colonist grew tired of unfair treatment. These three factors vitally changed how the colonists responded to various taxes that Britain imposed upon them. The first two years of the war was close to a “catastrophe” for Britain. In order for Britain to win the war, they needed to alter their war strategies.
