Introduction Welcome member of The United Sates House of Representative’ Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. And thank you for the unanimous attendance of all members today. Good Morning: Rep. Trey Gowdy, Chairman; Rep. Raul Labrador, Vice-Chairman, Rep. Smith, Rep. Lofgren, Rep. King, Rep. Guiterrez, Rep. Buck, Rep. Jackson Lee, Rep. Ratcliffe, Rep. Pierluisi, Rep. Trott (US House of Representative, 2015). Today I am honored to present the resolution to a decade old debate, Immigration. We share the common historical bond of immigration building our great nation. And today, unanimously we assemble for a presentation on its resolve. The solutions will once again bond our country to make it the great nation it is destined to …show more content…
A successful Immigration policy is for everyone, fair and with equitable to all. Today, the current policy it is far from equitably fair to anyone. In addition, Current policies ignore widespread public opinion and create additional stress on the communities where illegal immigrants work and live (Reno, 2012). This only exasperates the xenophobia that accompanies immigration. Keeping history of immigration in mind, currently the situation is unethical and unfair to all sides. In particular, it is unethical and unjust to undocumented immigrants. Many consider them in the wrong, but they real people with justices too (Reno, 2012). In many cases murders are treated better. They are enticed to our country by businesses contingent on the cheap labor to meet their business models (Reno, 2012). No further we can ignore this reality for the dire need for reform now. The enticers need to share blame and responsibilities for the treatment of immigrants and the broken system that continues. Today, we address the immigration policy realistically, honestly and uniformly. Both sides of the political debate put down the rhetoric come to terms and unite to reform this issue today. Admit over eleven million immigrants are here (Furlong, 2013, p. 148). Eleven Million plus set down roots, and gathering them up and shipping them back is “humanely, socially, and politically” (Reno, 2012) and …show more content…
Resolving this issue today will be historically monumental and the most effective global issue ever legislated. We have three main players involved in this policy. One there is you, Congress, with a 77 % disapproval rating (Gallop , 2015). Heroically, tackling the most controversial policy of our time in a fair, just, effective and efficient way. Two, about 270 million natural born US Citizens (Census, 2012), who believe that immigrants steal their jobs, depress their wages, refuse to integrate (West Darrel, 2010), waste tax money, drain social and health services and never pay any tax. Lastly, there is the immigrant, Pew Hispanic Center reported in 2005 that, “10% of all restaurant workers are illegal, 25% of all private domestic help are illegal and over 60% of agricultural crop workers are illegal” (Furlong, 2013, p. 148). Any mass deportation would destroy the economy. All three parties are equally dependent on each other and the solution should be equitable as well. Keep in mind your personal stake to put aside partisanship and reform this policy now. The majority of your constituents are opinionated and all are affected by immigration. Furthermore, 75% of all Hispanic currently living in the United States are actual citizens (Furlong, 2013) that can vote. A solution with the immigration policy is your solution to continuing the work you

    At first glance, the IRA was a success; however, it quickly became apparent that the law created more issues than it solved. To begin with, the employer sanctions section of the bill had to be watered down in order to attract support from businesses, thereby rendering the sanctions ineffective (Plumer). According to Brad Plumer, a columnist for The Washing Post, “Under the final law, all employers had to do to avoid sanctions was to make sure their workers had paperwork that reasonably appears on its face to be genuine. If the documents were decent fakes, that wasn 't the boss 's problem. In fact, employers were actually penalized if they scrutinized a worker 's nationality too aggressively.” While the law provided amnesty for nearly three million illegal immigrants, it failed to provide a path to citizenship for future illegal immigrants and the two million illegals still in the United States.…

    For example, the United States only spends a mere $95.3 billion on its veterans (“Fast Facts”). Aside from that, sanctuary cities provide a place for illegal immigrants or even terrorists to reside unnoticed, unquestioned, and uninterrupted. Also, if an illegal alien is willing to break the law once to come into the U.S., they are more than likely willing to break the law again after they are here. This costs the justice system money because they are arrested, prosecuted, possibly…

    Granting amnesty is more humane and beneficial than deportation, helps the economy, and reconstructs the immigration system for the better. Because of this, United States citizens should support Obama’s plan for legalizing amnesty as a viable option to “fix our broken immigration system” (“Immigration Amnesty 1-2). This plan Obama proposed is being run through Congress and needs support from his fellow Americans to fight against Republican opposition (Carroll 2-4). Obama and Biden have teamed up and hope to eradicate deportation and instead begin giving reprieve to illegal immigrants who have been approved through a general background check and paid their fine. They also are trying to arrange future strategies to prevent to entering of additional immigrants into the U.S., including stacking authorities on the southern borders and cracking down on business owners hiring illegals.…

    Polls show substantial support for creating a path to citizenship for some undocumenteds — yet 52% of Americans support allowing police to stop and question anyone they suspect of being “illegal.” Democrats are viewed as welcoming to immigrants, but the Obama Administration has sharply ramped up deportations. The probusiness GOP waves a KEEP OUT flag at the Mexican border and a HELP WANTED sign 100 yards in, since so many industries depend on cheap labor. (Vargas) This causes immigration reform to be one of the current issues in Congress. Since George W. Bush was president, the government has deliberated some type of reform. Although years passed by and no accomplishments were made, even after President Obama took office in 2008, with the recent success of the DREAM Act and the bill passed through the Senate, it leaves it up to the House of Representatives to deliver a completed bill that can be signed into…

    We now have about 12 million illegal aliens in the United States. This proves that when we allow illegal immigrants to become legal just to “get rid of the problem”, it causes an even worse problem. In 2011, FAIR reported that $113 billion per year goes to welfare for illegal…

    Argument analysis After jeff’s sessions speech about rescinding DACA and his words about how DACA “Denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans”, DACA became a trending, hot, and divisive topic that social media and people talk about. In this argument, I will analyze two of the op-eds written about DACA and how it affected the current situation of immigrants in the united states. The first op-ed is “NO, DACA immigrants aren’t stealing American jobs” written by Bryce Covert published in the New Republic. The other op-ed is “How DACA pits ‘good immigrants’ against millions of others” written by Joel Sati published in the Washington Post. While both of them did a great job in supporting their points of views, I will argue in this essay that…

    Immigration laws in the United States of America has become a quite controversial topic in today 's society. (CAP immigration team) ” The foreign-born population consisted of 40.7 million people in 2012.” A large portion of people in foreign countries desire to become American citizens due to the lack of freedoms of things like speech or religion. Every day there are illegal aliens that are sneaking into our country in order to escape their societies. (Krogstad and Passel) “Unauthorized immigrants make up 5.1% of the U.S. labor force.” A program should be implemented into the immigration system that entitles all immigrants who qualify, a chance to start a life in our country. The government should put these select immigrants into housing…

    Often times developed nations cannot support welfare and large amounts of illegal immigrants (p. 660). Although it would bring pleasure and happiness to those who do immigrate illegally, it simply cannot be permitted at any time. Kantian ethics also states that every action should be in accordance with…

    Why should a man pay taxes for a woman’s unemployment insurance? Will female employees assimilate and act just like men as we all wish? And what harm will be wrought in the homes they abandon?” (Clemens, 306) Clemens does a stellar job comparing immigrants to women and how we used to think they would be a liability in the work world and hits the reader’s emotions. He makes the argument of how ridiculous it would be today if we believed women would be a liability in the world today in regular day jobs, as they have proved to be anything…
