Syrian Immigrants

Good Essays
A New Place To Call Home Since the founding of the United States, immigration has been a government concern. The United States has had immigrants from various parts of the world, ranging from Hungary to Cuba (Singh). Now the United States appears to be taking in a significant amount of Syrians immigrants. This has caused a lot of conflict within our government and on the streets. Because of the unrest in the Middle East and shaky relations between the United States and that region, these Syrian immigrants are different than any other the U.S. has had thus far. Offering them refuge may be complex, but with intense background checks, questioning, and surveillance upon entering the country, they should be allowed to start making a life in the U.S..

Our United States has an open door immigration policy. The United States is open to letting anyone come inside this country with adequate screening, especially if they represent a danger. These Syrians by the facts stated earlier are obviously in a time of great trouble and sadness which should make us open to inviting them here. This policy is something our foundation was founded on and we should keep that in mind and stay true to ourselves. Furthermore there are always jobs that need to be done that many not want to do. They don 't pay well and are a hassle to complete if you have something else you rather do. If we had more people in our country those jobs would be filled with people who would actually like to help and get a little money while they do it. Any money is money for these refugees so it would increase labor force that we need for low paying jobs. They could start a whole new life in this haven of the United States and could help us all by joining us in our

    The issue starts over in the middle east, this article states that Syria is the biggest contributor of the crisis, as well as countries like Iran and Afghanistan (Migrant Crisis: Migration to Europe). In addition to all the issue that the middle east has is really a burden to its citizens. Moreover, all the violence is causing people to leave their home countries to go to a more stable country. Then again not all citizens in said countries will be happy seeing refugees come to their country, United States senators have proved this according to Guardian.com United States senators have said that they will not be accepting any refugees into their states (Cambin, Kingsley and Nardelli). Because the United States senators are not allowing refuges to enter their states, they are in fact helping groups like Isis, as the refugees will start to believe that their only hope for survival is to join with Isis (Cambin, Kingsley and Nardelli).…

    Across the country the topic of immigration from Middle Eastern countries has been at an all time high. Many occurrences over the years people have led people to label immigrants from Middle Eastern countries in negative ways. Recently, a debate sprung up arguments over the so called flawed immigration policy in America.

    The Syrian Refugees Crisis

    Therefore, to fully address the Syrian Refugee Crisis, the world’s governments must advocate for the creation of multi-cultural awareness and education programs. Millions of refugees leave from Syria and migrate into other Middle Eastern countries, European countries, or even North American countries, which all have starkly contrasting cultures. When Syrians flee from their home, they not only leave their material possessions, but also relinquish their sense of belonging and familiarity in the world. In foreign countries, the natural-born citizens often speak a different language, practice a different religion, live a different lifestyle, and even wear a different style of clothing than the citizens of Syria. The New York Times details the experience of one Syrian family trying to resettle in Canada with aid of a Canadian family, reporting that “the sponsors and the adult refugees could barely understand one another without help… they often [got] stuck in roundelays of Canadian and Syrian courtesy, so reluctant to impose that they [did] not say what they mean[t]” (Kantor and Einhorn 12).…

    and has become a prevalent issue of debate. Because there is such a large number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S., American politicians have struggled with creating effective policies to aid the current situation of immigration. The primary issue of debate is whether or not undocumented immigrants should be entitled to many of the same rights as native-born citizens. While many people in the U.S. welcome undocumented immigrants from a social justice perspective, many people in the U.S. believe that undocumented immigrants should be deported and subject to prosecution. The large amount of social transformation caused by immigration has heightened this debate.…
