The main problem at hand is the rising death toll of these immigrants due to the harsh weather conditions and their lack of water to keep hydrated while crossing the deserts. This causes issues of human rights, class, culture and national security. Humanitarian groups believe that immigrants are simply victims of horrible economic circumstances and do not deserve to be without basic necessities such as water and food in their home countries. Chris Simcox, founder of the Minute Men, established a citizen patrol group whose sole objective is to guard the Arizona/Mexican border. This private patrol group and many others like it are frequently heavily armed due to the threat of armed immigrant smugglers.
Evaluate a claim against American Dream The American Dream promises equality between races and religion; as well as a job and a good income of wealth. Yet despite this promise, immigrant minorities travel to America only to find injustice to their people. They are oppressed and discriminated against in the streets they live on. Also live in poverty and having no control over these things was nowhere in the promise the American Dream makes. That’s why I agree with the prosecuting argument of the American dream that Minorities, and women, were discriminated against.
Illegal immigrants work the hard jobs in this country as they take the jobs that they can get. Now, I am not glorifying illegal immigrants on any account, I believe that they should have immigrated to the United States through legal means, I believe they should need to apply for green cards and pay taxes. The point I am trying to make is that, the illegal immigrants do difficult work in this country that nobody would take if it was offered (the stereotyped migrant work, factory jobs, etc. ), so why do people complain (“Illegal

A novel that follows the lives of Indian immigrants and their young American born son Gogol and Daughter Sonia experience. Like most immigrants to the United States. Ashoke and Ashima Gangulis found the American culture and customs very strange.
The government has created a form of discrimination to combat previous discrimination; this is not even a levelheaded thought, programs and or laws supporting it such as Affirmative Action are immoral and should be abolished. How reverse racism negatively impacts Americans. Discrimination has been affecting America and its citizens for as long as we have been a country. From the Civil war to the Civil Rights movement to present day, it is an infectious plague. Today, hundreds of thousands of less qualified citizens are hired for jobs over other citizens, who are more than qualified for that position, all because of race (www.adversity.net).
The author goes into detail arguing against long hours, unhealthy environments in the work place, discrimination, terrible temperatures and the little salary. By going into detail within these categories he shows sympathy emotionally. Ravisankar pushes his point in reasoning by pointing out moral responsibility so the workers receive fair compensation and a cleaner working environment. He describes America’s obsession with a great bargain which leads to wide spread use of cheap labor. He refutes the argument by saying the companies such as: Nike, Reebok, Gap and such are the blame for seeking to get as much out of workers for the least possible price describing “The race to the bottom.” He presents a strong argument.
Ethics within the Apparel Industry Sweatshops are found worldwide, they are factories in the apparel industry that operate illegally, forcing workers to work long hours in horrible working conditions at a low salary. Often these workers are obligated to work under such condition not by choice, but rather they are obligated. These workers are often immigrants that are threatened with legal action, accused of committing crimes or ordinary people that are abducted and forced to work for free, frequently threatened with death. These workers are restricted from ethical rights. Sweatshops have always been an issue within the Apparel Industry; companies seek out cheap alternatives to having mass production of clothing for cheaper rates.
They are the ones that owed us money, but they still used the police to kick us out!” (Ching Yoon Louie 50). These immigrants work hard and long hours, they deserve to get the extra pay they have worked for. The Americans see them as animals or even maybe “slaves,” which don’t deserve as much as we have. They are humans, and every human is made equal, so they should get the equal treatment they are entitled to. Some of these people have started to realize that this is not right, so they have gone out and formed social movement groups.
This is not right, or rational that people would risk so much in order to come to the United States, to work a job that most American citizens will not work. Yet we are hateful and mean, protesting, these people rights to make a living and support their families, if the work wasn’t here they would not come. Do you think the Native Americans like what happened to them, when the first generation immigrated to American, many Native Americans are still suffering the effect of the colonization of America. Published in the Huffington post a video “Native American Man Tells Anti-Illegal Immigration Protesters Who 'The Real Illegal Immigrants Are’ it goes on to say that a Native American man tells protesters “We didn’t invite none of you here. We’re the only Native Americans here.”(Ramos Z 2013) Are the Americans that don’t support open borders scared, because they don’t want what happened to the Native Americans,
Argumentative Essay The American people don't have any problems with seasonal workers. Those are the workers who do the jobs that most of the American citizens don't want to do or are physically unable to do them. The concerns rise when seasonal workers try to steal the good jobs that citizens should have the first chance to. If the seasonal workers greatly contribute to the country, congress should reform the visa system and give them a chance to advance in the United States by making easier acceptance. There are unpleasant aspects of immigration, which includes the hardships faced to reach America and the conflict to gain acceptance.
