Rather they have the proper documentation or migrate here for a better life once they violate the immigration laws they face the consequences; for example, a person with legal document (green card) can have it taken away over a domestic violence charge or a simple DUI charge. Imagine two friends driving around and one of them carrying drugs but his friend was not aware that he is carrying illegal narcotics, once they get pull over most likely everyone in the car will be going to jail. Some people happened to come here so young they have no clue what

It is not fair for someone who works in this country for over 20 years to get deported without committing any crime they should be giving a chance to be legal and work to take care of their families. Deportation have been one of the main issues for decades and its getting worst; moreover, Most of the illegal immigrants are hard workers and want the same privileges as the legal immigrants. The fear illegal immigrants have to endure is terrifying; for instance, imagine while at work and suddenly ICE (immigration custom enforcement) just coming and detain everyone that cannot prove their citizenship status. It is embarrassing and humiliating; even though, most people will argue that someone whom never committed any crime should be allowed to stay in the country rather than deported especially those that have young children who born here. The government constantly adding new immigration laws such as: “public school officials to determine immigration status of newly enrolling students”. Someone who was convicted of a crime and served their time then get pick up by immigration then get deported, that is understandable because they violated the immigration law which they signed upon receiving the green card; however, some of the illegal immigrants cause no threats to the American public so they should be allow to stay especially if they have been living here for a long time and have families that are American citizens. It is very hard to explain to a child that he/she will be separate from his parents. Children that have parents in immigration custody or deported usually show signs of loneliness, clingy behavior, fear, unable to focus in school and anxiety. “In November 2011, the Applied Research Center (now known as Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation) published a report, Shattered Families: The Perilous Intersection

    Illegal immigration has been one of the most controversial topics in the United States. However, the governments still have not found a solution to end this madness; as a result, it 's getting worse by the minutes.

They go trough all this trouble for the sake of their families back home. All the illegal aliens want to do in this free country is to find a job, send their earnings back home, also hope one day they have saved enough money to bring their families over to the United State legally.…

    This would have psychologically affected Dan-el and his family as they would deem themselves as failures in the pursuit of American Dream. This hurdle is one of many which suggest that the foreign policy needs to be reformed to favor the immigrants who not only look for a living but also contribute to the entire American economy (Burron, 2013). Dan-el recounts how the lack of social security numbers made it difficult for him and his family to access the essential services like: opening a bank account or accepting financial aid. The legal system in the United States always saw illegal immigrants offering their services, and as most who support strict foreign policy, they (immigrants) are referred to as “parasites”. The lack of papers (cause) made him unable to access the necessary social services (effect) and thus making his life…

    Many people usually disregard that they have children and probably another big family, so when they get deported the whole family is separated and financially unstable. My family used to go through the fear of my father getting deported. When he got deported from the United States, my mom ,who just had my brother, and I went to Mexico to get him. Then after that we fixed his papers, so we would not have to go through this experience ever again. Imagine all the other people that have to go through this especially if they do not have the chance to fix their documents to be legal, like my father did.…

    Her crime was so minimal compared to others and she was sentenced quite harshly for her miniscule involvement almost a decade before even being sentenced. That is something that should be changed. People who commit non-violent, low-level crimes should not be incarcerated whatsoever. There are many alternatives such as implementing fines, community service, and rehabilitation programs. Prisons are extremely overcrowded with non-violent, low-level offenders.…

    Illegal immigrants can do this is by using rhetorical virtue. Rhetorical virtue is the tactic of adapting to the values of the audience, and making them feel like you embody those values (Heinrichs, 2013). There are a few ways in which illegal immigrants can do this, the first is by talking about how their families will be split up if the immigration plan is executed. If two illegal immigrants give birth to a child in the United States, that child will be considered a United States citizen. The problem with this though is that once Trump starts deporting illegal immigrants the child will get left behind while the parents are sent back to their home country.…

    Instead of being exposed to racial bias on media children are getting a book about a family who possibly has to migrate to the United States to be able to make a living, ““I don’t want to leave you,” said Papá Rabbit, “but the crows took all our money. if it doesn’t rain enough again this year, and if there is no food or work here on the rancho, what else am I to do? I will have to leave again.”” Media often portrays Mexican immigrants in a negative way, often calling them “killers” “rapists” and “criminals” and with this book it shows the real reason why many Mexican immigrants come to America. Pancho Rabbit and the Coyote is also important because it shows representation of the latino community, and representation is important especially to children who are considered minorities, “ A report by the Cooperative Children 's Book Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that only 3 percent of children 's books are by or about Latinos — even though nearly a quarter of all public school children today are Latino.” this representation lets children who are latino be proud of who they are and be comfortable with who they are, and not only is it important to Latino children it’s also important for children who are white, “Nelson adds that it is also important for white children to see characters of different races. "Not only do they learn to appreciate…

    But I believe it unifies us in our fight for change. We, regardless of our home country, are subject to stereotypes, blatant discrimination, and even frightening situations that many people can’t imagine going through. At eight years old, I feared losing my mom to police officers because her important residency documents hadn’t arrived in the mail at a time when ICE raids were heightening in my city. At fifteen years old, some of my fellow Hispanic classmates didn’t identify with their race, and mocked me for doing so. At eighteen years old and as a low-income first generation college student I felt blessed for all that I accomplished and the opportunities I have strived to achieve and many more that I am pursuing.…

    This is because there are going to be more people worried about if they are going to be in prison for the rest of my life just because of their stupid decision to get in the car and drive rather than calling a cab. There will be less people coming out of bars drunk out of their mind and getting in their cars and driving. There will also be less people that have already had a DUI driving because they may have finally learned their lesson by their first time through and how stupid it was. All of this may cost a lot of money but it will be worth it in the long run. The statistics will change dramatically by less deaths by drunk drivers and less people will have to worry about their kid getting killed by a drunk.…
