Jenna Taylor Emily Bayus Lindsay Shewmaker English 102 1 December 2013 Illegal Immigration: The problem and the Solution [INSERT INTRODUCTION HERE] In the United States of America, as of 2011, there are an estimated eleven million illegal immigrants from across the globe (mostly coming from Mexico). Illegal immigrants that come from around the world are simply looking for the good ole “American Dream”, and that’s what we have to offer, right? So why not just let them enter peacefully, so that they can fulfill this dream, and live happily ever after. I mean heck, the only reason that we, as Americans have any opposition over illegal immigration is because of racism, right? Wrong.
These manufacturing methods can be replicated by other businesses in the countries and improve their ability to manufacture goods. This improved ability to manufacture within the country and should lead to an increase in the GDP of the country. This will improve the trade and relations between the country and many others. Also in some cases these MNC's will invest in the infrastructure of the country. This will improve the trading process for not only the company, but also the rest of the country.
Drug Trafficking in the United States from Mexico Drug trafficking in the United States and Mexico is a huge problem for the United States because it has a negative impact on other areas in society such as crime rates. The government needs to find a solution to better control drug trafficking because it claims lives and destroys families. Research shows Marijuana and Cocaine are the top two most illegally abused drugs in the United States. James Gray (2001) points out: Not only is this drug-money corruption problem of enormous concern in its own right, but additional lawless behavior often is derived from it as well. For example, the entire southern California area was shocked in September 1999 when a former officer of the Rampart Division
While trying to cut off the drug supply at its source seems like a good idea it does not, however, stop the demand (376-377). Every time a shipment is confiscated another one is right behind it ready to be sold to eager users who are already addicted. It doesn’t matter how many large scale seizure of shipments happens because people will continue to find new and inventive ways to smuggle them into the country. I remember seeing a news report of how over 2 million dollars
I don’t buy that, along with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, our Creator endowed anyone with the right to sneak into the United States, bypass our laws and set up shop. Maybe our immigration laws do need fixing. But this is a discussion for American citizens. In English”(458). For example, Star Parker is correct because, if you read labels today on any object, they partake in having Spanish right along side with English.
Identity Theft: Effects on its Victims What is identity theft? Identity theft is the wrongful obtainment and use of someone else’s personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain. An estimated 11.7 million people reported Identity theft and the financial loss totaling more than $17 billion in 2008 (“11.7”). Identity theft is a serious problem for many people. And most people won’t even know their identity’s been stolen until it’s too late and they become a victim to identity theft.
Some diamonds have helped fund devastating civil wars in Africa, destroying the lives of 3.7 million people. Conflict diamonds are those sold in order to fund armed conflict and civil war. Profits from the trade in conflict diamonds, worth billions of dollars, were used by warlords and rebels to buy arms during the devastating wars in Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Sierra Leone. While the wars in Angola and Sierra Leone are now over and fighting in the DRC has decreased, the problem of conflict diamonds hasn't gone away. Diamonds mined in rebel-held areas in Côte d'Ivoire, a West African country in the midst of a volatile conflict, are reaching the international diamond market.
Second Body A. Mexican Immigration is taking over this country. Mexicans are pouring into this country, many looking for job opportunities and many of them doing it illegally. There are nearly 12 million illegal immigrants in this country and that number is on the rise. The effect of this widespread movement into the U.S. is a weakening economy. The cost of these illegal immigrants is high and with the economic situation we’re currently in, we can’t afford any additional expenses.
Illegal immigrants who do not pay taxes are costing the American tax-payers because of their visits to the hospital and the education that America provides for their children. "The economic and social consequences of illegal immigration... are staggering... Illegal aliens have cost billions of taxpayer-funded dollars for medical services. Dozens of hospitals in Texas, New Mexico Arizona, and California, have been forced to close or face bankruptcy because of federally-mandated programs requiring free emergency room services to illegal aliens…The total K-12 school expenditure for illegal immigrants costs the states $7.4 billion annually" (Haughen
Gun control is the issue on whether we should put more restrictions on gun laws or keep them the same. Personally, the gun laws in our state are fine and do not need to be changed. Even if we were to add more laws while it would only serve to make obtaining a gun even harder than it already is and would have no effect on illegal trade. Criminals would continue to smuggle and trade illegal guns regardless of the laws to be or already in place. Therefore putting down more laws wouldn’t make a difference as Illegal trading would continue to take place, as American citizens we have the right to bear arms according to the second amendment, any new laws would make getting a gun harder for someone who could use it as protection.
