America is a wonderful place to live, so should immigration become legalized, meaning as soon as a foreigner steps on U.S soil should they be considered a U.S citizen or should immigration stay illegal for those who do not go through the naturalization process? Many people may look down on immigration because they see immigrants just coming to the United States and ?taking? jobs from less fortunate Americans, which in all honestly those Americans are not willing to do those jobs anyways, but that still remains to be a huge debate. Americans tend to frown upon immigration because if immigrants take the time to actually come to this country, they should take the time to become a legalized citizen of the U.S, but even if immigrants did so would Americas opinions really change? Another problem people see with immigrants is the increase of population, some may see this as a huge dilemma and in some eyes it is completely true, but at the same time immigrants come to this country wanting to start a new life.
Donald Trump has clearly not thought about how this can have a significant impact on our country economically, and how it can affect families and communities. Everyone should be treated equally and not be differentiated because of their status. Undocumented immigrants want a better life for them and their families; why can’t they just receive the U.S. citizenship opportunity? As President Obama believes, “This is not just a debate about policy, it’s about people, it’s about men and women and young people who want nothing more than the chance to earn their way into the American Story”
Politicians and high profile people have been referring to these children as “anchor babies”. That phrase is offensive and insinuates that the child’s only purpose in life is to fix the papers of their illegal parents to allow them to stay in the U.S. It must be acknowledged that the children had no choice in how or where they were born and blaming/incriminating them will do nothing but create a dividing line within in United State citizens. This could create a larger issue. Citizens feeling as though they are more significant than others simply because their parents are legal citizens is silly.
Let’s assume this were to happen if the individuals now considered illegal, could more readily obtain legal citizenship, and let’s pretend massive amounts of immigrants poured into the country daily--we wouldn’t be able to sustain society as we know it now, because of limited land resources. Therefore I propose, that we additionally address the issue we spoke of earlier, that potential immigrants are unsatisfied with their current lives, I believe their lives can be bettered without immigration. I believe that anywhere from politics and hand on work in the nations needing help, will reduce the feelings of urgency surrounding immigration.
Second, if you are really concerned about inequality in the United States, there are many things you can do that would be better than blocking other people from coming to our country.(qtd. in Howley) In addition to that, deporting illegal aliens would have a negative effect on the economy and the resources that would be used to send back the millions of illegal immigrants(“ At Issue: Jobs for Immigrants”). It is a waste of time and money, why would we send back these people to poverty and distress? The Unites States could find better use of these resources than to just deport people back to their countries. That is why we should give illegal immigrants a chance to
The natural born clause is one of the worst provisions in the Constitution, America is supposed to be a “land of opportunity,” but with this clause it demonstrates the opposite. People leave their country of birth and come to America in search of the opportunities that are portrayed in the United States. Many foreign born people do not only leave their homeland behind, but they also leave their families behind. The reason for which they leave their homeland and come to America is because they believe they will be treated fairly and they will be provided with the same opportunities as the natural born citizens. Denying a foreign born citizen the opportunity to be a President simply because they were not born in the US territory counters the
Unfortunately, the numbers of people applying is getting too large, causing America to take sometimes drastic measures in order to prevent legal United States citizens from losing their homes and jobs to illegals. People like Donald Trump prefer the more drastic measures, while David Inserra does not think that enforcing the United State’s power is the fair option. Either way, this does not disprove the reality that those controlling the border also feel that the extreme option is the most effective option.
Republicans want them to come forward and “get right with the law.” There will be no special path to citizenship but the undocumented immigrants will have to pay excessive fines and pass background checks, among other barriers, in order to stay in the US. Criminals, gang members, and sex offenders will not be eligible for the program.
One of these rights allows citizens of this nation to own and operate weapons. Arguments concerning gun control should be silenced because as citizens of America, people have the right to own guns. In the year of 1791, the states ratified the Second Amendment which states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of arms the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” (Congress 1). What the country approved in 1791 still stands firm today. Because it “shall not be infringed,” the controversy should not even be present in society.
Under the 14th Amendment, the US accepted children born of immigrant parents as citizens, so long as they were born on American soil. Changing that amendment, after so long of a time, since it took effect, is futile and impedes America’s strive for diversity. Paul C. Barton, of the Washington Bureau, wrote an enticing article in regards to the 14th amendment and its well-debated arguments. In the article “Birthright citizenship contested on Capitol Hill,” Barton explains that “some Republicans want to deny citizenship to children,” who were born of immigrant parents even though they are guaranteed citizenship under the birthri...
