In an article by Washington Times titled “ Illegal Immigrant Detention Centers Rife With Abuses, U.S. Civil Rights Commission report finds” it claims, “Some detention facilities---both government -run and private ones operating on contracts ---don 't provide good medical care, deny illegal immigrants the chance to try to get lawyers to help them with their cases, look the other way when rape or sexual abuse occurs”(Dinan). Rather than treating immigrants as prisoners, These immigrants need to be provided with adequate care. Providing immigrants with this kind of shelter, kindness, food, and other necessities will push the immigrants towards the next step, working and expanding the
How this many undocumented immigrants live here is a little hazy because of our rigorous laws. There are two different types of illegal immigrants and knowing these two distinctively different types of illegal immigrants is of great importance. The first, are immigrants that travel to our country legally with a visa or green card but stay as their visas become expired. The other illegal immigrant is when a person illegally trespasses our border without asking for permission from the government and lives here. The first type of Immigrants are much easier to track and incarcerate because of the fact that the government already knows that they are in the country.
The three main reasons they become invisible victims are they are not aware they are victimized, they don't know the right way to ask for help and they are afraid to be fired or even deported. Illegal immigrants in the United States usually come from less developed countries or at least poorly developed regions of these countries. These illegal immigrants carry a totally different knowledge of culture, legal system and human rights when they came into this country. The most these people are victimized is when they are working, sometimes, these people can't even realized when they have become victims. Because of their status, illegal immigrants, it is very rare that they can find good positions in considerably big companies to start with.
I agree with how the wall only makes the cross to America more dangerous, and those that want to seek a better life for their family will risk their own to enter America. I believe that people who are in a situation like that need our help the most, and the system for legal immigration to this country needs to be simplified, if not to provide a better life and future for those in need, but to save their lives. However, in the documentary, I believe that the people known as the Minute Men were portrayed unfairly, even though almost all their remarks towards the border and illegal immigration were questionable. For example, when criticized of being racist by the interviewer, the leader of the Minute Men refutes by saying “The people who are protesting are clearly more racist themselves, by saying that other people are racist.” Although what he answers with is debatable, I feel as though the Minute Men have a stigma of fear towards immigration and foreigners, especially after 9/11, when a few in the video referenced how they were afraid of terrorists coming to America through the Mexican border. I believe that if they put some of the fear that they had aside and tried to listen to the people who are trying to come to America, they, and a lot of other people who feel the same way towards Mexican
Instead, the government is wasting money and manpower trying to keep out the immigrant workers the U.S. economy needs. That makes the job of finding a terrorist like finding a needle in a haystack. Topics such as terrorist threats, DLs, burden on our economy, deportation, amnesty and the term Illegal Immigrant are just a few topics that people often consider when taking on the subject of Illegal Immigration. So whether you are for or against it, that is your opinion. As for me, as long they are not out committing serious crimes or hurting anyone and are trying to do better for themselves and their families, just let them be.
Immigration Reform The current immigration policy is badly in need of repairing. Its harsh treatment of immigrates has created mistrust between citizens and law enforcement, is costly in terms of clean environment, resources and human lives. Fixing this policy will vastly improve living situations for both citizens and immigrants. Although illegal immigration is against the federal law, many states believe that the government isn’t doing a very good job enforcing it. Some states, like Arizona, have came up with their own attempt in order to compensate for this issue.
Because illegal immigration is growing at such a rapid pace, the United States government must make a policy decision about illegal immigration now. Today, deportation, imprisonment, and border security are generally used as methods to combat illegal immigration, but these methods are unethical and ineffective. Deportation condi... ... middle of paper ... ...e our ethics with intimidation and isolation. Farouk Abdel-Muhti, an illegal immigrant detained after the post-9/11 policies, addressed the unethical treatment of illegal immigrants in “Detentions and Torture: Building Resistance”. He was held in an immigration detention where he was beaten, harassed, and denied proper medical care (Haerens et al.
There are two types of immigrants. Those who go through the proper channels to become a legal residents, and those who cross our borders illegally. The issue we have here in America is the illegal immigrants want or take benefits away from our own citizens who are also in need. Our country has gotten away from taken care of our own citizens due to the number of illegal immigrants our system is funding. This is becoming a bigger problem than anyone can handle, and not sure if there are just ignoring the problem, or if our government is oblivious to the situation.
To others undocumented immigrants cause more problems than committing crimes. “Many argue that providing amnesty for illegal immigrants already in the United States, opens the door as an incentive to other undocumented travelers to come to the country, They may believe they can get away with breaking the law because Congress will provide amnesty” (“Pros And Cons of Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants “). If their was a chance for amnesty for undocumented immigrants, immigrants will still be blamed for something that is out of their control. “Even if amnesty were to pass, the immigrants may also require the assistance from governmental welfare programs, which could add up to
