For other people, the move to America may become a nightmare, and this will depend under what conditions these people moved to this country. People come to America in search of a better employment opportunities and more money. Many have a dream and want fertile ground to plant the seed of that dream. They may have tried in their country and it did not work as expected, so they decided to come America. Other people move to America to leave poverty behind, while others seek better medical treatment.
a)"The idea of America" is referred to as the fleeing to America. Baba wants to go to America because Afghanistan now is in trouble and Baba does not want Amir to see thing that should not be seen by a small boy. b) Yes, there is a huge difference between the way immigrants view America and the 'real' America. Baba thought that America will be safe for him and Amir and it would be really easy to adjust there, but actually Baba dint want to go to America as he missed his old Kabul life which made him proud of what he was in Kabul. Baba just came to America for the sake of Amir for he thought he gave a gift to Amir when they were in America and for Baba it would be something that he would have to suffer for Amir.
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. It is not necessarily a literal freedom from oppression but a freedom of choice, a freedom to create one’s own destiny. D’Souza’s most powerful and agreeable argument is that the Americans simply have a better standard of living in comparison to most countries. In many countries throughout the world living conditions cannot be changed. No amount of hard work or experience can change something that you were born into.
The United States is getting desperate; they have already fallen short of recruiting goals which is raising the need for more people to join the military. Hence the military has eliminated almost all of the prior requirements to join. Don’t have a high school diploma… that is fine, a person does not even have to be an American citizen. That is correct the United States military is taking in illegals, the same people (United States government) who say that they are trying to deport and prevent illegals from being in America is doing the exact opposite it’s total hypocrisy. So what are people suppose to believe that illegal residents are taking jobs that American’s want?
America has been the home for numerous people and they feel the need to represent “their” country in many ways as possible. However, as they grow up they observe that they are limited to certain things including going to college. It is not because they are not intelligent or committed to education, it is simply because they do not have a legal status that provides the opportunity to apply for financial aid and in some cases college. During high school everyone starts planning their future, and one of the main focuses is getting into college. How would you feel if you find out that you cannot attend college?
I believe if we were to send the immigrants home where they belong and bring back, or even create new jobs, there would be less unemployment .We could get the economy back where we are living comfortably. The world would be in a better position other then where we are right now. Unemployment would not be a big factor in society today. Welfare would not be turning people away, saying sorry we can not give you any assistance. Where is this leaving Americans today?
I believe that this is a valid claim. It is, after all, by pure chance that I was born in the United States rather than in Mexico. I did not choose for my parents to be United States citizens, but this is what my fate has been. Assuming no legitimacy beliefs regarding reincarnation, it cannot be argued that I did anything more to deserve being born into middle-class America than Maria who was born into poverty-stricken Mexico. I understand my fortune of being born into this life, and had I been born into her life instead, I would hope that I would have some right to improve my situation.
If the media portrays the good, showing the humanization of immigrants, viewers wouldn't be as instilled with fear. Both of my parents had a dream before moving to the United States. They dreamt of a better life, a life free of struggle and safety. Today, they still happily reside in Bismarck, ND and have left their mark in the community. "Before arriving here, I thought life would be easier, but it's not.
America is one of the most diverse countries in the world because so many people immigrated to the United States in the past in search of new opportunities. Immigration is the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country. People from all over the world travel to the United States for a better life. Without diversity, the United States would not have the culture it does to this day. America needs immigration because immigrants help to develop new ideas, a diversity of culture, and they founded and helped to create the United States.
Being an educated or skilled immigrant would most likely mean that the steps to naturalization, as in the mandatory costs and testing, would be less of a challenge to fulfill. In Chapter four of the text Racial and Ethnic Groups (REG), it states that “The brain drain is the immigration to the United States of skilled workers, professionals, and technicians who are desperately needed by their home countries.”(REG, chapter four, p. 103) This would cause some reluctance in my decision to migrate to America from China. The fact that I would be possibly taking away something that benefits my native country could cause some second thought. This may not be a major factor if the political system in China had a negative effect on my economic advancement. The same could be said if I was looking for an education in America and eventually decided to stay instead of returning to China because of the lack of opportunity for growth.
