It is simply the ability to make money. It is also commonly said that immigration into America is so appealing because of its opportunities to produce new social statuses. The majority of the time that there are reasons listed for attempts to migrate into the United States they are material reasons. D’Souza wrote “America represents “the bitch goddess of success.” That is why people reach out for the American Idea” (D’Souza 435). D’Souza acknowledges that while there are many materialistic gains to be made in the American society the desire for immigration and the commonly held views of America has a more prominent reason, the American dream is a dream based on freedom.
Immigrants will only continue to impact the United States positively. Not one part of the United States was made without involving immigrants. Americans can not survive without the help of immigrants because immigrants have created so many inventions that are the basic needs of people. Immigrants continually bring new cultural ideas that just add to the American culture and they are the foundation of which America was born of. United States benefits from immigration in so many ways that without them American loses so much.
“The Rebirth of Patronage: Have We Come Full Circle” Feeney and Kingsley (2008) states,“Patronage can be narrowly defined as the power to make appointments and distribute government jobs, especially for political advantage, but its social implications are much broader” (p. 167). Patronage can be used as an advantage for politicians who are running for any political office in order to win potential votes for their campaign. Most politicians are knownfor using different tactics like offering jobs, health care, and other issues that appeal to citizens. Will patronage divide or unite the United States? Patronage can have positive or negative effects on the United States while the merit system is against patronage and the spoils system is in
immigration laws in america I agree with Richard raynor on allowing illegal immigrants to stay America. Immigrants work for cheap labor and help the economy grow. Not all immigrants are bad and some leave in a really bad environment. I think it would be a blessing for them to come to America for a better opportunity. Immigrants are the reason America is so powerful today.
Immigration Family, friends, the comforts of home and familiar surroundings all became a distant memory for people when they immigrated to the United States. Immigration is essential to the American economy because it contributes to the overall growth of the nation's wealth, it successfully exhibits the economic capitalist model that our nation has come to possess and, above all, it promotes success for the immigrants' and the natives' descendents alike. To begin, immigration in its totality increases the total output of the economy. By welcoming foreigners from various countries with open arms, the United States is initiating the correct action in promoting its economic growth. When these new people enter the daily workings of American society, they contribute positively to both employment and consumption.
We are going down the road of socialism, and I personally feel it is partially due to our diversity in the country. This is going to be our country’s biggest challenge as me move further and our country becomes more diverse. What has America stood for? The land of the free, a place to come and make better for yourself; the idea of getting a job, working hard, and providing for your family; being able to get a good education and passing it on to the next generation; being able to do this without persecution. Early in this country growth the population was very diverse, but they all seemed to share some very common goals and principles.
"Low skilled immigration greases the wheels of the U.S labor market," economist George Borjas accurately describes 21st Century America. Today, our country is a diverse nation filled and dependent upon immigrants, whether they are properly documented or not. The United States benefits from all immigrants, both legal and illegal, but there are Americans who object the idea of illegal immigration. There is a common perception that illegal immigrants are sucking up the benefits of the government and taking American's jobs, but the reality is that America is benefitting more from illegal immigrants because they are contributing immensely to society. Since illegal immigrants contribute to America by paying taxes, working hard- labor jobs, and restricting
Immigration gives the United States an economic edge in the world economy. Immigrants bring innovative conceptions and entrepreneurial spirit to the U.S. economy. Immigrants bring about innovative conceptions and entrepreneurial spirit and apply these elements to the U.S. economy developing sufficient solutions to economic issues such as decreasing the unemployment percentage via immigrant-founded businesses. “They provide business contacts to other markets, enhancing America’s ability to trade and invest profitably in the global economy”. They keep our economy flexible, sanctioning U.S. producers to keep prices down and to respond to transmuting consumer demands.
Machiavelli Machiavelli’s The Prince is a handbook for rulers on how to run a state. Unlike previous works on this topics Machiavelli starts by describing the true nature of man. Previous works were based on an ideal model of citizens, were people are honest, loyal, law abiding, and generous. Machiavelli says that in reality “men are ungrateful, fickle, dissembling, cowardly, and jealous.” Machiavelli argues that princes must use ruling techniques that are effective given mans nature. Likewise, the prince must have qualities that are less than ideal in order to be an excellent ruler.
Not celebrating assimilation creates the impression that America is allowing immigration solely because the economy needs it. While economic factors are the driving force behind any society, it must be acknowledged and celebrated that cultural diversity augments economic growth. What bothers me is that Rodriguez seems to be overemphasizing the effects of cultural background in defining individuality. And because I live in America I feel as if I am being defined solely in cultural contexts. With this in mind, I began to wonder whether America is truly a place where individuality is valued.
