“It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope” (Henry 228). Due to the high taxes, many Puerto Ricans moved to the United States looking for hope of a better and a more stable place to live. According to a census in 2012, “the departures of island-born Puerto Ricans have contributed to an uptick in the number of island-born Puerto Ricans living stateside, to 1.4 million in 2012”(Cohn, Patten, and Hugo). This emigration is due to various reasons like: job- related, family matter, other, etc. The primarily reason is the job-related because with all the unemployment and high taxes, people moved to look for a better job under stable circumstances.
The substantial increase in population due to immigration that occurs during this time goes on to affect the nation in positive and negative ways. Some of the adverse affects of such a rapid growth in population were overcrowding in cities, lack of jobs, and occasional food shortages. But the hard working spirit and work ethic that the immigrants brought, along with a determined will to succeed, were an overarching positive were crucial to the country becoming what it is today. In the late 1800s, people in many parts of the world decided to leave their homes and emigrate to the United States. Immigrants entered into the United States through several
When speaking to the Spanish dominant, it seem like they are having a hard time with the language barrier. Back in 1968 “The Bilingual Act” was a law to support two or more language use in our schools and work places. This law was not completely thought out because it had it share of problems and hinder the growth of these ethnics background in the United States. Hispanic American Diversity Page 3 Mexican American migrated from Mexico; it is one of the largest Hispanic groups to settle in the U.S. They have made a cultural impact to our country with their music and food.
I am astonished on how racist people were and are to this day. In my opinion if all the “white” Americans were to actually research their background, how many have a different ethnicity in them? I know I do and I am proud of it. In the year 2050 the face of the United States will have a higher immigration rate. The immigrations that are expected to increase are the Asians and the Hispanics.
Immigration: Costs and Benefits Every year, hundreds of thousands of immigrants, legal and illegal, from around the world, come to the United States. People choose to immigrate to America because there are a vast number of opportunities and they are in search of a better quality of life. Supporting them self, as well as, family in their country of origin; legal and illegal Immigrants are looked down upon by society and are thought to be the cause of some of the burdens that our nation suffers from. Taxpayers are forced to pay for the welfare and schooling for many of these immigrants, some who are illegal aliens. Other citizens believe that immigration contributes to crime, poverty, and overcrowding.
Executive orders were also introduced to improve their roles in society. For instance, EXO 9980 introduced fair employment in the civil service meaning blacks were finally starting to be legally allowed to earn as much as the common white man. It is clear to see that Blacks progressed economically but they also regressed in some sections. For instance, White Americans were not best pleased that Blacks were now able to be interviewed for some of the same jobs as them. This caused riots in many industrial areas like the Detroit riots which lasted three days and caused 34 to be killed, 433 wounded and property
Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Spanish Americans are four of these groups that have expanded throughout the United States. Spanish is the sole language of Mexicans. Mexican Americans speak a slang dialect and varies depending on the amount of time in the United States and how much education he or she has. Most Mexicans migrate to America in the surrounding states of Mexico. Mexicans traditionally have bigger families, but over the years the rate has declined.
Every day, approximately 95, 000 foreigners arrive in America whereby, around 3,000 are invited to become permanent residents. Around one thousand of them are unauthorized foreigners mostly Mexicans. Immigration from various nations to the US, has led to numerous changes in the American culture as far as laws, policies, and systems are concerned. The non-European immigrants have been seen to reshape the prior European protestant character of the American nation in a number of ways such as, introduction of new welfare systems, changes in immigration policies, and industrialization (Martin & Midgley, 2003, pp. 3-4).
Although it has reared in different forms in America’s history, it has not gone away. Political struggles over race have been long and arduous. “Only since 1952 have all Asian nationalities been allowed to become naturalized citizens” (63). The “large influx of ‘new immigrants’ at the turn of the century led to a proliferation of negative images…which were assimilated and adapted into popular culture” (64). These stereotypes “underscore white ‘superiority’ by reinforcing the traits, habits, and predispositions of nonwhites which demonstrate their ‘inferiority’” (65).
Unions not only lead to higher average wages among their employees, but they also contribute to higher levels of unemployment among those who are not members. Thus, unions can lead to lower average wages and lower rates of employment among minorities in affected sectors. 2 Since the main purpose of any business is to get more profit, companies which support Labor unions will suffer with it, and in our 2nd argument we are objecting to labor unions, loss in business value it causes. In this argument I want to expound adverse effects of labor
