    In “The Framing of Immigration,” George Lakoff and Sam Ferguson claim that issue defining framing is narrowing, particularly in the case of immigration reform. Immigration reform, they claim, is a complex issue whose simple frame ignores security, economic, and social concerns. The authors organizes their claims through the use of specific subclaims, counter arguments, reasons, and evidence.

This subclaim is chosen to support the claim because it explains both the current narrow “illegal immigrant” frame, as well as the frames from conservative aligned groups that are not covered. The reasons used to support this subclaim are the use of “illegal immigrant” frame, Americas concern for border security, and the use of the word amnesty. The first reason is that the illegal frame is poorly chosen.

Evidence for this reason are that the term “illegal” connects undocumented immigrants actions with “prototypical criminals” (5). Furthering saying that the physical act of crossing the border without documentation is not the same as murders and thieves (5). The second piece of evidence that the authors use is that the term “illegal alien” — which is associated with the illegal frame — promotes…

    It was a gray day. The sun did not shine; it could not sever the layers of powdery black skies and the fog.
