Reforming Immigration For Good Analysis

Improved Essays
I am writing in response to a request from The Shorthorn’s editor stating the opinions of publishing or not publishing Mae M. Ngai’s “Reforming Immigration for Good.” The author claims the government 's approach to protocols regarding control of present immigration are failed ideas. She inflicts emotion to the reader on why illegal immigration will not stop, by stressing the need to give more opportunities and to be “flexible and fair.” I consider the topic at hand appealing to the demographic of international students at UTA, but I do not support her article. Ngai’s writing brings forth ideas of why actions of legalization happen. Her overall reasoning is the loss of money regarding border control, adding on to the true problem but not halting …show more content…
Besides her accomplishments relatability, her manuscript shows it is what she relies on. Ngai also disregards the audience and any other argument that contradicts hers. Having no rebuttal cripples your argument and conveys your claim is ineffective. Ngai seems to be disconnected from the topic of immigration and The Shorthorn readers. She confines in her evidence, conceals her values, and the interest with the topic. In other words, she does not relate to anything in her writing, its transparent, and it executes her entire plea. To conclude this analysis “Reforming Immigration for Good” abandons the right of publication. Ngai’s academic approach is unappealing to the youth of Shorthorn readers, and she rarely grants the article a breath from overused factual evidence. Her weak central claim was backed up by minimal support, and she made no attempt to have common ground amongst other arguments. Nevertheless, she somewhat had an idea that could enlighten new prospective of immigration, her execution was deficient. To truly make her argument solid she would need to distinguish who are her audience, revamp, glamour her

    But using too much or too little of any technique can throw off the writing piece. Cepeda starts off her writing with giving her reader logos but as she gets deeper into the article she overshadows her own voice and her point of view using summary and pathos and no ethos. The techniques used in the article are not evenly distributed causing the reader to be partially effected by her writing. Esther Cepeda the Author of “ Jose Antonio Vargas's Lies Deserve No Sympathy” is partially effective on her reader because she uses logic in her writing, but notwithstanding she complicates her writing by adding summary and using her readers feelings and not using ethos throughout her article. Despite her effort of convincing her reader to have no sympathy for Vargas, she loses her reader by having unevenly used techniques throughout her work.…

    The traditional voice vs. exit conflict as described in public administration literature ignores another option. While utilizing voice or exit may be ethical, it is unlikely to lead to any real fundamental change, and could only serve to stunt her career. The third option involves not pressing the issue and continuing on with her job. This is by far the most pragmatic option. It is not the most ethical, as she is not directly reporting the misbehaviour.…

    These juxtaposing ideas show her lack of concern on the issue. These actions, with no attempt to reconcile with the rape victims, show the lack of concern she will continue to show throughout her career. Thus, her call for a protection of women’s rights will just be another empty campaign promise. Again, Mrs. Clinton finds herself speaking out against something while her actions paint a different picture. Here, she manipulates her support by rallying against the success of Wall Street companies, while her campaign benefits from such success.…

    The narrator in “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” proved over and over again to be unreliable. Through her desperation to be believed and tell a believable story, she allowed for multiple small and large contradictions to occur. The narrator is not incompetent, but she was careless in the way she presented the story. The malleability of the storyworld and its rules allowed for all the contradictions to occur thus discrediting the narrator. As the narrative is one that illustrates two extremes of which neither is appealing, the intended reader is left with nothing; a utopia that does not exist and a false utopia that no one would wish to exist.…

    In the article titled The Handmaids Tale and Feminism: Examining characterization in Atwood’s Novel by Sophie Peters a good point about Nick and Offred’s relationship is made. Peters argues that while reading the novel we at no point witness a direct conversation therefore, we really have no insight to how Nick real feels or what his motives are. Peter also points out that Offred goes back and forth on whether she trust Nick or not (Peters 1). The self-doubt and contradictory statements that Offred is constantly making provide more evidence that she is being oppressed…

    She also finds herself may be prejudiced and snobbish. M’s morality of self-introspection cannot be considered as the U-type. On the 22nd page of “The Idea of Perfection”, Murdoch claims, “M’s activity is peculiarly her own. Its details are the details of this personality; and partly, for this reason, it may well be an activity, which can only be performed privately. M could not do this thing in conversation with another person.” Murdoch means M’s morality of self-introspection is the activity that comes from her own personality and experience rather than any universalized reason.…

    Yet as you go further into the heart of this story, we find that she is none of these things rather she was the opposite of what was expected at the time. In reality she is far more capable and calculating then she lets on. Her appearance as a perfect lady does not reflect her acts and actions within the story. When she is confronted with a situation where there is no other choice she proves that she is not a…

    Though Elinor does not allow hope to persuade her to the point of conviction, except in one instance, like her sister, she too is capable of losing all hope. However, Elinor’s hope, unlike her sister’s, is easily rekindled by the faintest hint of any fact or logic that will allow her to support her expectations. Therefore, the author stresses the fact that hope should be moderated just like reason and…

    Both detectives, Lund and Norén, resemble the brilliant but solitary and socially dysfunctional detective of the earlier films noirs. Saga Norén might however stand out with her inability to manage interpersonal relationships and to understand human emotion. Norén’s characteristic traits appear as a particular gift for an investigator. Although Norén’s characteristics are typically associated with the Asperger’s syndrome, this condition is never acknowledged by the creator of the series or by the actress Sofia Helin who plays her. The fact that the series or its creator never acknowledges the diagnosis could arguably be a strong choice regarding the validation of an interesting female character.…
