Although Governor Jan Brewer in the article “Arizona Enacts Stringent Law on Immigration,” has a good point about the importance or working to solve our immigration crisis; however, this crisis does not mean that the police should be given the power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally. Illegal immigration has been a major problem for many years now in the United States. Everyday thousands and thousands continue making their way into our country through the Mexican border, oceans and neighboring states. Many, including former President George W. Bush have attempted a reform, but have failed or only got so far because it was too controversial. However, Governor Jan Brewer took on the illegal immigration issue to a whole new level by signing the “nation’s toughest bill on illegal immigration into law”, as it was put by the NAACP (“Put an end to Racial Profiling”).
I think, because of my background and where I live, I have an uncommon insight into the treatment of immigrants in relation to each other. The immigration issue in America has been one of the most controversial issues ever. Many people don’t believe that America should house anyone that fled their country. However, many refugees have fled from their country to seek refuge in America. As a result, these people are treated unfairly by the Americans that feel this way.
Abuse can cause physical and internal problems; which can lead a person to have long lasting effects even into adulthood. The first reason why immigrants should report or advice other people about this act is about the internal and physical problems that the practice of that act could cause. Many times, immigrant officers beat or abuse an immigrant for non logical reasons, and none of those reasons are acceptable. We are all humans. Even though the consequences of their maltreatment may not be serious, immigrants should always report this act which sometimes can cost them their lives.
Illegal immigration has been an important and serious issue for decades; which affects everyone, both Americans and immigrants themselves. Illegal Immigration has three main purposes: first to find a better life in the “promise land”, second: free healthcare, and third: for criminal activity. Most illegal immigrants come to America with the best intentions for themselves and/or their families, but many others have alternative motives. The thing that must be remembered is that illegal immigration is illegal. It’s all in the name.
Most of these workers are hired to work in the agricultural, manufacturing, and construction industries. These workers are not given any kind of health care or any other benefits and can easily be mistreated or discriminated against since they do not have any legal rights. This can cause hardship for the illegal immigrants and also put strain on the government at a local, state, and federal level due to the evasion of taxes. The general population is also affected by illegal immigrants since these immigrants are taking jobs away from the legal citizens and driving up the unemployment rate of our country. The United States has a right to limit and control immigration into the country and I feel that every attempt possible should be taken to minimize this ongoing problem of illegal
Is it more accurate to regard the Sicilian Mafia as a rational response to a business opportunity or a primitive social movement? Originally the Sicilian Mafia was created as a result of the inability of corrupt governments to fairly manage the public, as the gap between the rich and the poor kept increasing. This came about due to the abolishment of the feudal hierarchy in Sicily in the 1860's. This encouraged local strong men, from a particular area, to group together and seek out their own interests because the government failed to do so. Consequently this lead to certain 'families' running and and serving the interests of their own specific community in the surrounding area.
Some of the measures that the British government brought in might have over stepped the boundaries and this will also upset the colonist. The colonies have never been happy with the fact that Britain had the right to regulate trade, but they have never really been happy with the face that the British policies will increase the internal tax. Then the stamp act was brought in the colonies together agreed that Britain had no right to tax them in this area. The stamp act was tax on documents.

Alexander Sebastianus Writing Response: “Growing Up in the Shadows: the Developmental Implications of Unauthorized Status” Never to considered citizenship statuses, I am quite surprised and astonished by the significant number of Unauthorized immigrants in America and their struggle living abroad with their family, as the article Growing Up in the Shadows: The Developmental Implications of unauthorized Status mentions, that “Unauthorized immigrants account for one-fourth of all immigrants in the United States, yet dominate public perceptions and are at the heart of a policy impulse.” I can say I am privileged to be able to have a home and place where I am in comfort and feel safe. Many families and individuals are situated in places they feel not belonged or have a harder time to make a living. This is why many people in different parts of the world migrates and hope to make a better living for their families and future generations. Unfortunately our world revolves around a system where it holds statuses of where a person belongs and lives. This complicates the process and restricts peoples freedoms and rights of where they belong and what services they are eligible for.
An example of these was the non importation movement. In this movement, Americans stopped buying goods from the British goods as a protest against stamp tax. This action was not defiant in nature and did not call for punishment from the British government. On the contrary, it put a lot of pressure on the government and forced it to react by repealing the stamp act (Greene & Pole, 2004). Violent reactions were, therefore, not effective as they received violent reaction from the government and did not bring the desired change to the colonists.
The missing ships have been surely founded as per the investigation of the area in the basin of the sea. For most of the people, it exists as a hell on earth. I believe that there is no exaduration concerning the Bermuda Triangle, and the matter should have been taken more seriously. Among many reasons for which I believe that the mystery of Bermuda is a real and justified matter is that the leading insurance companies around the world do not cover insurance for the area of Bermuda triangle. It is indicative of the fact that there are more cases of plane crashes and ships sinking that are more likely to take place.
