Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Immigration and the American Dream Immigration in the United States is beginning to change with Obama's Administration. He is nowlooking to secure the borders betweenthe United States and Mexico and help families be granted citizenship. Becoming Americans gives a chance for those families to get a chance at the American Dream. "I worked with Congress on a comprehensive fix, and last year, 68 Democrats, Republicans and Independents came together to pass a common-sense, compromise bill in the Senate. That bill would have secured our border; giving undocumented immigrants who already live here a pathway to citizenship if they paid a fine, started paying their taxes, and went to the back of the line. Independent experts said it would grow our economy, and shrink our deficits" (Obama 1). Immigrants come over to get the American Dream.Others have to come over for other reasons.They come over because of crude leaders and persecution in their country.They all have one thing in common, when they come over theyall get the advantages of being Americans. The opportunity to go from rags to riches. The third goal of U.S. immigration policy is to provide a haven for refugees and asylum-seekers--people who are unable to return to their home country becauseof persecution (or a well founded fear of persecution on account of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinions (Caldera and Piper 6). Immigrant men, ages 18 to 64, are more likely to work than native-born Americans (Anderson 2). To become a citizen there are many obstacles to over-come. It is not the most simple process one will gothrough. But, it is still one step to the, God given, American Dream. Mr. Wang, Buddy, Sonny, Stick, and Jane begin a long trek over a mountain to their destination. "After Climbing the mountain I was in the U.S.A ( Kuklin 15). Another reason why immigrants come over to the United Statesis that it what's in their blood.People have always migrated andthey want to take after their ancestors. They go around to see new peopleand get new freedoms. Wang and his friend are following the footsteps of generation upon generation of Fujianese seafarers who, since the time before the Qin dynasty, have immigrated to such far-off lands as Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines ( Kuklin 14). What helps the American Dreamstay restricted to Americans? The fence between the U.S. and Mexico runs off and on for 651 miles along the 1,954-mile border. Most of it has been built since 2005. At some points, it's an 18-foot-high steel mesh structure topped with razor wire. At others, it's a rusting, 8-foot-high thing, made of Army surplus landing mats from the Vietnam War. The fencing is one of the more visible manifestations of a massive effort over the past two decades to improve border security. The results of that effort are dramatic. Those images of crowds of immigrants sprinting across the border illegally while agents scramble to nab a few are largely a thing of the past (Benac 6). Now with Obama's new Immigrationpolicy Illegal Immigrants inour country can't be deported. This is a new policy Obama made so thatwe won't seem like the bad guy and we welcome " Everyone". This allows for everyone to partake in theAmerican Dream. Last year, 85% of the people removed from the interior had some type of criminal conviction, the ICE report said, and the most of them were convicted of felonies or at least three misdemeanors (Tanfani and Bennett 2). By announcing a global policy of nonenforcement against certain categories, Mr. Obama condones unlawful behavior, weakening the laws deterrent impact, and allows lawbreakers to remain without fear of deportation (Rivkin and Foley 1). Why do Immigrants come over? Can we deport Immigrants? Is Obama keeping us Safe? What does it take to come intothe U.S. Why do Immigrants come over?
