The US, while founded by immigration, is surprisingly stringent in their outlook on the Latinx border and from Muslim countries, many times families being demonized by the president. To combat this, the policy of DACA is being enacted to recognize immigrants as potential workers and participants in American society, something that should not only be kept but expanded on. Following events like 9/11, Muslim and even Latinx immigrants to an extent have been demonized by American politics, in which democrats believe in orderly data collection, something the republicans view as a burden to our economy. Various bills were enacted by both political parties, policies that not only counter-acted each other in the fight over immigration but helped spread certain views on individual people. Coming from latin america, which is crippled by economic devastation, workers struggle to obtain green cards, resulting in illegal immigration.
The immigration policy was made to make regulations for people who are coming into the country and to ensure our country is safe. In the article how the policy works, it explains how the immigration policy has different systems to make sure everyone is in a country for a reason such as for work, school, families, or they were born and live here. There are many systems to keep our nation safe such as DACA. This issue is happening nationwide from California all away to the southern states and the west coast. Many families are in danger just because they don’t have the correct papers. Families are getting chased and jumped in their own homes and are told they do not have any rights. Many regions are in danger but there some that are in more danger than others.
Some examples of those regions are California, Texas as well as many country regions that rely on agriculture. Immigrants’ labour is one of the most efficient labor in agriculture and they are not being given what they give into their work everyday. Latinos and Hispanics all over the country are one of the largest ethnic groups that have most cases of illegal immigrants. More than half of America’s population is Hispanic and Latino ethnic groups. ICE (Immigration And Customs Enforcement) are going into people’s homes without permission and some simply not considering their rights. We need to be able to tell these people that they do have rights and they can be safe. We need to save these groups of people and keep families together because there is some thought of America as their home.
Perspectives on this Policy Issue
There are many opinions on the subject of immigration. Immigration is a controversial subject and there are many sides to it. The current state of this issue is still in debate, however many Hispanic citizens, as well as many positions, agree that depending on the background of the immigrant and its record in the country they should be allowed to stay and provide for the country. Over time, the Immigration policy was different, as before the policy was not as restrictive as it is now. Immigration has opened the country to refugees and out of the country begins to have a safe place to stay and live a new life, however that has changed. Not all sides agree however there is always some fact in what people say, but there can also be misconceptions by many politicians.
Ever since the attack of 9/11, the immigration policy has become stricter than ever. There was a restriction on Muslims as well as Hispanic immigrants and it is also known as the Patriot Act. However, depending on each party and ethnic group the perspectives are different. The democratic party for example believes in creating DACA immigrant students and workers can be safe and stay in the US to have a better life. This is a policy that has kept families and young immigrants safe for generations. They gave young immigrant students to have a career and to be able to give back to their families. However, republicans have a different opinion. Republicans are a more conservative party and don’t like to pay taxes for certain programs and believe that immigrants are draining our country’s economy. In an article known as The Immigration Debate explains both sides of the argument and explains that there is a court blockage of love 1,000,000”(6). However, there is research that says because of small businesses there are more jobs that are also producing more profit to both the business and the country itself. It is said that because immigrations our country’s economy is rising 50 percent.
As we all know, all policies and the government makes all decisions immigration. Each branch works together to make bills to eventually become laws or programs. The government needs to keep policies that help workers and immigrants stay in this country there should be a compromise for students and workers. The United States Congress has passed various bills in the U.S. Imigration, and a portion of the bills have profited or punished a large number of settlers while private bills have been acquainted with one worker or one group of foreigners.
In today’s government Washington is pending a movement bill presented in the Senate and the Place of Delegates. In the Congress Legislature it stated that , “ It likewise connections to recordings and the content of witness declaration before Congressional Panels and Subcommittees on immigration.”(1) These panels and sub communities were only some of the groups that had created the Comprehensive Immigration Reform, the Secure Borders Act, the DREAM Act, the AgJobs bill, the Domestic Partners bill or any other piece of immigration legislation. We trust that the data contained on this page helps you in seeing how the U.S. movement laws and systems influence you regardless of whether you are an individual looking for a visa, a green card or U.S. citizenship, or whether you are a business supporting outside conceived experts for movement benefits.
Some of the bills that are going through congress today are the Belief Act, which is like DACA, and they are trying to help immigrant dependents to help keep families together and protect the families of students and DACA holders. Recently, a bill was in the House of reps in the year 2019 called the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019. In an article known as hispanic culture it states that , “This bill increases the per-country cap on family-based immigrant visas from 7% of the total number of such visas available that year to 15%, and eliminates the 7% cap for employment-based immigrant visas.”(4). This explains and shows the struggles of hispanic worker and how they are trying to have a better life but is not given the chance.The bill additionally sets up progress rules for business based visas from the year 2020 to 2022 by saving a level of laborers with cutting edge degrees or outstanding capacity, gifted and different specialists, and financial specialist’s visas for individuals not from the two nations with the biggest number of beneficiaries of such visas. Of the unreserved visas, not more than 85% shall be allotted to immigrants from any single country. The bill is used to give visas to immigrants that come to the country for work. Another policy that went through congress and the most known policy is called DACA. DACA had to go through the whole process in order to be active in our government.
Our current president, Donald Trump, is not the biggest fan of immigration.President Trump believes that a wall should be made to protect the United States from illegal immigrants. He believes that immigrants should be native to the US and people outside coming in should have the same rights. The president is more conservative than other politicians. President Trump believes that a wall should be made to protect the United States from illegal immigrants and that DACA should be abolished and shut down. There are many daca holders who are students that are being attacked and judged by the american government and ice officers such as one case in Berkeley . In the San Diego Jornal it was stated that, “There was a case of a boy in the wake of spending around more than about fourteen days in detainment, a UC Berkeley understudy will be permitted to come back to grounds while his migration case is pending”(2). Luis Mora went through around five minutes before Judge Ana Partida before she consented to discharge him for the base conceivable bond of $1,500. Eleven individuals there to help Mora jammed into one side of the little court at Otay Plateau Confinement Office, where Mora was held.THere are many cases of children just like luis mora and there should be a chance to help young immigrants like him to study here in the united states.
In California there are state and local governments creating ways to protect students and families from these policies being made.For example, California legislators proceeded with the state’s development of rights and securities this year for migrants who enter the nation wrongfully, with laws marked by Gov. Gavin Newsom permitting them to serve on government sheets and commissions and prohibiting captures for movement infringement in town halls over the state. The endeavors by Newsom and Democrats in the California Law Making body to give shelter to foreigners remain in sharp difference to the arrangements of President Trump, who keeps on pushing for both another divider in the U.S.- Mexico fringe and action against refuge searchers.
Furthermore, there are many things that the government is doing to protect Immigrants from the country but especially high populated lationo populations such as california. As we all know, any policy goes through the government and the government makes all decisions immigration. Each branch works together to make bills to eventually become laws or programs. The government needs to keep policies that help workers and immigrants stay in this country as always there is a compromise and there should be a compromise for students and workers that are in the United States.Congress has passed numerous bills on U.S. immigration. Some of the bills have benefited or penalized millions of immigrants while private bills have been introduced to benefit one immigrant or one family of immigrants.
Roadblocks and Solutions
Immigrants who want to live and work in the United States, Republican party leaders in the House of Representatives released a set of principles for immigration reform . It marks a tentative sign that they might consider compromising with broader efforts passed by the Democratic-controlled Senate.Under current policy, the thousands of scientists and engineers who seek permanent residence in the United States must compete for a total of 140,000 ‘green cards waiting years for approval. There are private sectors that can help such as a private immigration lawyer or a private org that can help immigrants get to the place to be able to stay and live their better life. However, there are still many roadblocks in the way. All we need to do is ask help and be there to help.
Many roadblocks that exist in today’s society and government are the politics of today and the parties that are over running our government. Another roadblock is also the financial struggles as well the debt that we are in that can prevent many immigration programs to shut down. Some real world practical solutions we can offer or that the government can offer is to keep DACA and as well as provide working permissions to immigrants and as well as have refuge programs that can help people that are in harm’s way in their own countries. There are many that are of the need of help and we should start now. There are many roadblocks in the way of help but we need to fight the best we can for others that need that help and show that we care. Most of the actions do need for the government to act. We need for the democratic politicians to help and fight for these immigrants that help and provide for our country more than anyone else does.
In conclusion immigration is an issue that still has things to change but I think that together as a country we can try to protect those immigrants that have come to have a better life for them and their families. If we are able to come together and fight for our freedoms and the freedoms of others, anything can happen. Over time, the Immigration policy was different before the policy was not as restrictive as it is now. Immigration has opened the country to refugees and out of the country begins to have a safe place to stay and live a new life, however that has changed. Not all sides agree, in an article known as Immigration reform it has stated, “that conservatives see the financial burden of immigrants.”(10) however there is always some fact in what people say, but there can also be misconceptions by many politicians. There are ICE officers going into people’s homes without permission and some simply not considering their rights. We need to be able to tell these people that they do have rights and they can be safe. We need to save these groups of people and keep families together because there is some thought of America as their home.
