How can immigrants keep their own culture in a new country... or can they? Many people go from one country to another, and one of the biggest problems immigrants face is maintaining their cultural identity. Many immigrants mustassimilate into a new culture, or entirely give up theirs to adopt a new one. Considering that not a lot is done to assist immigrants in this respect, perhaps other countries shouldn't expect assimilation from immigrants.Maybe the culture of immigrants should be able to coexist with the cultureof the country they are moving to. What does the government do for immigrants? In the 1960s, the United States government passed laws that made discrimination illegal. There have also been courtcases and movements to help immigrants flourish in the United States, botheconomically and socially. What are some ways immigrantstry to retain their cultural identity? There are surprisingly few things in placeto help immigrants maintain their culturalidentities. One thing immigrants do is livein small immigrant communities to preservetheir culture, though many face varioushardships through their lives. Another thingthat is in place is the proposed DREAM Act, which supports immigrant students to goreceive a higher education. METHOD SUPPORT What effects can the diversity of cultural identities have on society? There are varying opinions that exist in regards to diversity's effects on society. One side of the argument says that ethnic diversity cancan give a country a very bright future (Robert Putnam, political scientist at Harvard), while the other side says people willgenerally isolate themselves from foreign cultures and create a "turtle effect," where people will hide in a "shell" so to speak. EFFECTS What are the main things thatpose a challenge to immigrantspreserving their own culture? CHALLENGES One major challenge immigrantsface is certain state laws thatsay illegal immigrants cannot attend a college or apply for studentloans there, depriving them of theopportunity to be educated. Anothermajor challenge immigrants face is the pressure of assimilating into the country and culture they moved to in order to economicallysurvive. SOURCES
