It has been stated enforcing SB 1070 is costing Arizona over 141 million dollars. Additionally, Arizona’s financial crisis must endure the boycotts, protests, uprisings, court litigations, and economic sanctions to repeal such a ridiculous law. According to Republican congressman Raul Grijalva, Arizona is in a bigger dark hole economically now than prior to the enforcement of SB 1070. Arizona has lost billions of dollars in trade retail sales, visitations, and tourism all from this law (Grijalva). In her research study conducted at the University of Arizona, Judith Gans concluded that the total fiscal cost of all immigrants was approximately $1.4 billion in 2004.
Since, immigration system still dysfunctional, there are many problems with the immigration policy that the U.S. federal government should focus on. The U.S. government and the state's officials should collaborate to enact a law and enforcing to all the states. The U.S. government should enact a law that prevents unlawful immigrants to access such as jobs and other government benefits. They must track down employers who hired illegal immigrants because not all employers obey the law, especially in the farm industries. They should provide a system that assesses employers by using “the E-Verify system to check the immigration status of new hires” (Jacoby 1).
A startling 293 murders were reported in 2010 in Los Angeles and 32 murders for Long Beach and yet it is even more shocking to know there are far more forcible rapes that occur in both of these areas. I would think that population size, diversity and other environmental factors have something to do with the differences in these numbers. The murder rate seems to have decreased while forcible rape increased in both cities, with an additional 630 incidents in Los Angeles and an additional 102 incidents in Long Beach. On the other hand, for the past several years, crime rates have dropped continually. The Los Angeles Police Department reported in 2008 that
Background Approximately 15,000 people die each year by overdosing on opioids, a rate that has more than tripled since 1990 (Wermeling, 2012). The annual incidence of opioid over dose associated mortality on a nationwide scale has been difficult to assess due to incomplete reporting systems (Leavitt, S.2010) as well as more than half of over doses go unreported for fears of repercussions (kuehn,2014). In Massachusetts these over doses have killed more than car crashes each year since 2005 (Wermeling, 2012). The government had tried numerous strategies to reduce the death toll, including imposing stricter regulations on prescribing medications, prosecuting owners of “pill mills” who dispense the drugs without proper medical evaluation, and tracking data bases to monitor and discourage “doctor shopping” among addicts (Szalvitz,2013). Addiction often begins with a legitimate opioid
They both have a high rate of robberies, but Philadelphia has a larger robbery rate than Baltimore. Baltimore and Philadelphia had recent drops in the citizens that are willing to report crimes. Philadelphia is located in the state of Pennsylvania, and the population is estimated 1,447,395. Philadelphia has 10,170 robberies in 2010 . Over the past year the rate of robberies has increased by more than 1,000.
METHAMPHETAMINE A GROWING PROBLEM Methamphetamine a Growing Problem in Your Community and no Solution in Sight John A. Haile East Central University Abstract The production of methamphetamine and the abuse have increased drastically during the past decade in the United States. There has been an increase of more than 500% in the US from 1992 to 2002, from 10 to 52 per 100,000 people age 12 years or older. Because methamphetamine can be manufactured locally from commonly available ingredients, according to simple recipes available on the Internet, makes it unlike other imported drugs. Methamphetamine users and producers are often the same, having an effect on both physical and environmental conditions. The route of administration can be in a multitude of ways, most common are, injection, snorting, smoking, and ingesting, we are finding a wide variety of users in all social economic classes.
Health care fraud is a major concern for the United States. National healthcare spending is already an astounding $2.7 trillion dollars but it will only continue to rise since health care fraud costs the country approximately $80 billion dollars a year, as reported by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”). As the economy fluctuates, more health care professionals are willing to risk patient harm and their practices to achieve these health care schemes, and so the total loss in health care continues to increase. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services estimate that by the year 2016, health care spending will exceed $4.14 trillion. The FBI is one of the main government agencies that investigates health care fraud against federal and private insurance programs.
Even outside urban communities, this has become a common sight at busy intersections and freeway off-ramps. As many as 3.5 million Americans are homeless each year and of these, more than 1 million are children, which on any given night can total more than 300,000. Homelessness has so permeated the American landscape that it may seem that the social conundrum has always been a part of our society. However, homelessness is a thoroughly modern phenomenon and primarily an economic problem. It is affected by a number of factors such as people not wanting to help the poor, lack of or limited income and those affected by disabilities.
Conference of Catholic Bishops on January 30th, they forecast that nearly 60,000 unaccompanied minors from South and Central America will be entering the United States this year from the southern border. This has escalated from less than 25,000 the year before, and an even larger leap from a decade ago of just 5,800. Many of the minors who are caught, are released to their relatives already within the United States, who in many cases are themselves illegal immigrants (Millman). Many critics of immigration see this as a way for more and more illegal immigrants to flow in to the United States without and worry of deportation. Sadly, to some, many of the minors who cross over the border illegally are mashed through a mix of government agencies all with the soul goal of supervising the children and teens before deporting them back to their home country.
Unemployment and Its Impact On American Cities Michael Collins Marygrove College Abstract The United States, its cities, and regions for decades have been trying to maintain low unemployment rates. It is a well know fact that the economy in America is facing tough times and many companies are being forced to pass out pink slips. As a result, America and its cities have being confronted with some of the highest unemployment rates in the 21st Century. Politicians have employed many strategies and ideologies to help regulate the unemployment rate. Unfortunately, over the past 10 years these strategies and ideologies have failed.
