  • Argumentative Essay On Immigration Analysis

    I always thought it is a tough to live as an immigrant in the United States today. Presidential candidates, such as Donald Trump, do not make it any easier. Ever since 9/11 and the 2008 recession, there is an increasing hatred towards foreigners that do not look “American”.
