Argumentative Essay-America The Melting Pot

America The Melting Pot

A nation founded by immigrants, for immigrants, but now decides it’s too risky to let in people who need our help. Imagine being forced to put all belongings in a bag, and walk with your family to the nearest countries, and being denied continuously of shelter. The same politicians who say “Live the American dream”,deny it from other humans because of fear. The most important thing in life is opportunity, giving these Syrians rights, and freedoms they haven’t previously had will create hardworking thankful citizens, and children with opportunity.

The argument that we shouldn't take in immigrants because of the number of homeless citizens we already have is ludicrous, they're two different topics, and manipulated through politics. For instance, we spend 601 billion dollars a year on military, but can't help the veterans that survive from staying off the streets. Next, the immigration issue is just giving them a chance because without us they will homeless without a choice.

But, what we can control is giving these families a second chance. It’s hard to comprehend the courage it takes to move countries and continents, while accepting that most of that new country is going to have preconceived notations and racial bias from what they hear on the news.
In conclusion, not giving these human beings a chance would be un American. For example, we have a national monument called the Statue of Liberty, which is a symbol of enlightenment for us immigrants to get a fresh start. My Great-Great grandparents were immigrants, who risked everything to create a better future for their family, but as time changes the American ideology does as

    Also immigrants work in communities and are crucial to keep the economy from crashing. Trump claims that all illegal aliens are taking all our jobs but if immigrants did not do these jobs, the US would have an even higher unemployment rate(On The Issue, Web). The book Just Like Us explains how it is very hard for illegal immigrants to work because they do not have social security numbers. Yadrina and Marisella, characters that have a difficult time finding jobs without social security numbers in Just Like Us, end up finding work can provide for themselves and their families. Typically the work of undocumented people in the United States is more dangerous and difficult, often times the jobs immigrants take on are the jobs that American citizens would never want to do.…

    Because undocumented immigrants are willing to be paid less, Americans struggle to compete for the jobs. We have Americans out of work, but foreigners having more jobs than American citizen does not make sense. According to Donald Trump’s website, he wants to “put the needs of working people first” (“Immigration Reform”). This idea leads to Trump’s big plan of building a wall which is needed to prevent illegal immigration. Even though many may think building a wall is rude, I personally think it is just a clever way to prevent undocumented immigrants from entering; however, I do not agree with Trump’s plan to make Mexico pay for the wall.…

    The negative connotations that the government has on immigration makes immigrants think that they cannot trust the government and so they must avoid them at all costs. I think that the way to get people safely into the states is to except them to this big country. We should work around helping them find community and a source of income that is stable and learning the language. “The simplest and most efficient legalization program would be a single- application process resulting in immediate permanent resident status. However, because unauthorized immigrants have been living outside the legal system for many years and may need time to collect needed documentation and meet prospective program criteria (such as payment of penalties and acquiring English-language skills), this may be too large a step to take initially” (Lisa S. Roney, 2016).…

    Although it is understandable that deporting eleven million people is not practical, and the plan provides undocumented immigrants a legal way to earn citizenship and be accountable for taxes and laws, there are still issues regarding population influx, economic deficits, and safety. Allowing the opportunity for naturalization for eleven million people does not solve the fact that within those eleven million people, drug cartels, criminals, uneducated people, and terrorists reside (Why Illegal Immigration is Bad for America). It does not solve the billions of dollars worth of debt due to illegal immigrants. Yes, these new citizens will begin to pay taxes, which will take away a large tax burden from current American citizens, but these eleven million people will now be in direct competition with the twenty million already unemployed Americans who search for jobs. President Obama’s plan for amnesty is…

    It would be very disappointed that, for example the daughters and sons of these brothers and sisters never meet the rest of their family, and as a great country, the United States should help this to not happen because it is one of the countries that has the power to do it. Even when many people may keep arguing that foreigners should be coming to our country legally,…

    Solving the problem is the hard part. Some people want to keep immigrants out while others completely, while others want the U.S let immigrants in freely. However, both of these solutions will only bring more problems. If we keep immigrants out completely, then the economy will feel the burden due to lack of field workers (Zavodny). If we keep letting more immigrants come into the U.S, then there will be too many workers and not enough jobs (Zavodny).…

    How exactly does illegal immigration affect America? Should the policies be more stringent? These are frequently asked questions by most people, especially with the recent presidential candidates proposing their ideas for office. Many people migrate to America in hopes of a better living and more job opportunities. However, immigrants do not see the impact created in the country upon illegal entry, which not only weakens the value of our national security system, but has also created a large financial drain on the economy.…
