    Ignorance in the Immigration Debate One of the biggest, growing debates today is the issue of immigration into the U.S. I just don’t understand why there’s such a big debate. I compare this issue to the issue of racism in the way that, no matter what you do, "they" are always going to be here, and it is only ignorance that keeps the issue ablaze. The fact that migrants are not mostly white these days, also makes the issue one more of race. As Charles S. Clark puts it in The New Immigrants

    The controversy over immigration has typically overlooked the political purpose of immigration: to supply citizens who will cherish and uphold the American Founding principles of equality and liberty, of government by consent and the rule of law. Founding a new nation and then perpetuating it are the two greatest challenges of statesmen. Part of that task of perpetuation—and Abraham Lincoln reminded us that it can be a more difficult task than founding—is creating new citizens. In the United States

    philosophers have addressed the looming American immigration crisis. Our elected officials have failed for more than two decades to act to control immigration. As a result, demographers are already taking note of the dramatic changes occurring in the population of the United States. Leon Bouvier and Cary Davis, respected demographers with the Population Reference Bureau, prepared population projections demonstrating the changes which large-scale Third World immigration is causing.

    The Immigration and Job Loss Debate A debate that always seems to raise its ugly head when the issue of "foreign labor" is discussed concerns the types of jobs that immigrants take and whether they are actually taking these jobs away from American workers. I look at it as jobs they are "left with", not ones they are taking. The debate always shows an American family that has been displaced or lost their livelihood because they can no longer compete with cheaper labor. In reality the jobs that

    According to Aristotle, a speaker could frame any debate using three approaches: an appeal to logic, an appeal from credibility, or an appeal to emotions. All speakers and writers use the tripartite approach to rhetoric in varying degrees and ultimately the audience judges their effectiveness in the context presented. In America, few topics are as hotly debated as that of undocumented migration, and it can be difficult to pick through the partisan and often vitriolic rhetoric in order to come to

    Mexico. Although Americans have more opportunities, not all of them take a stand to make an effort because they do not like to do the jobs that are not of quality or do not fit in their culture. As mentioned in the essay Why Americans Hate This Immigration Debate by Herbert Meyer, Meyer talks about how immigrants come to a whole new world not knowing anything besides having the desire to be an American. Migrating isolates the immigrants from their homeland and from their family that are left behind with

    While watching the Republican Debate on January 14 and the Democratic Debate on January 17, only two figures vividly stood out to me: Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. While watching these debates, both of these candidates took control of the room when speaking. Their rhetoric brought forth the most applause from the audience, the confidant characteristics they displayed were impressive, and their overall personas, which echo, “presidential material”, were entertaining to see in full force on national

    Juan Ginés de Sepulveda, Bartolomé de las Casas, and Francisco de Vitoria arguments pertaining to the settlement and colonization of the native people of America, while presented in different manors, are all the same. All three Spaniards believed that the barbarians had to accept the rule of the Spanish because the Spanish were mentally superior, and divine and natural laws gave the Spanish the right to conquer and enslave the native people of America. The foundation for Spanish conquests
