Immigrants' access to resources
Immigration policy has become one of the most contentious topics in American political life today. America proudly proclaims itself a nation of immigrants, but there has been growing backlash against what is perceived as a 'tide' of illegal immigration to the United States. Of particular concern is undocumented workers' access to social services such as healthcare, education, and other benefits. This inability to reach a political consensus on how to deal with immigrants' access to government resources has resulted in the stifling of initiatives such as the as-yet-to-be passed DEAM Act (Development, elief, and Education for Alien Minors Act), which would allow the children of illegal immigrants the ability to become citizens, even though they were not technically born in the country. Concerns over illegal immigrants gaining access to healthcare was even used as an argument against the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) although illegal….

In contrast, 'Irina' could not remember what Russia was like. Her parents were Jewish, and also had a great deal of difficulty immigrating to America. Irina was so young at the time she could hardly remember the experience of living in the Soviet Union. Her parents raised her in a Russian-speaking household at first, but after entering public school, she soon acquired English and it became her primary language. She spoke without any accent, unlike Martina, although she said her Russian-Jewish heritage was an important part of her life. Because her parents lived in an area with many other Russian immigrants, she had been exposed to the culture for most of her existence, and because she could not remember some of 'the bad times,' she had mostly positive feelings about being Russian, although she could not imagine living in Russia, she said. Her parents had experienced persecution as Jews, but….
This made the legal attempt to gain reparation for those who were imprisoned and lost so much very difficult. The acceptance of a plan for reparation was not achieved until 1988, and the completion of a memorial in honor of those Japanese-Americans who served in the armed forced and those who were interned in the camps during orld ar II was not completed until late in the year 2000.
The world of the Japanese in America had inextricably changed and the reality of their lives would never be the same. Having no material or intellectual connection remaining in their nation of origin, some even being not immigrants but second and third generation Japanese-Americans they were still considered a threat to national security and worthy of containment. Public challenges to the plan existed but where not heeded and many majority Americans and even those of German or Italian decent watched….
Immigrants" by Pat Mora
There are three underlying themes in the poem by Pat Mora entitled "Immigrants." The poem's main purpose is to convey what immigrants experience as they attempt to settle down into their new lives in America. The first theme has to do with the process of assimilation that immigrants try to have their families undergo through here. The second theme has to do with immigrants attempting to retain parts of their old cultures in their new homes. Finally, the third theme has to do with the anxiety immigrants often feel over whether or not their children will be recognized as American citizens.
Mora's most dominant theme within the poem has to do with how immigrants attempt to openly assimilate their families, particularly their children, into American society. Many instances of assimilation are mentioned here, beginning with the figurative meaning behind wrapping babies in the American flag. In order….
immigrants to obtain a driving license. The writer examines several aspects of the issue and presents the opposing viewpoint. The writer details the reasons it is a good idea to issue licenses to immigrants. There were six sources used to complete this paper.
In recent years the topic of immigration has moved to the forefront of America's news. Immigrants entering the nation by the millions come seeking a better life. America is known worldwide as a melting pot and a place that opens its arms and heart to those who want to come. More recently however, there have been problems with exactly what to do when it comes to the many life issues that American residents face. One of those issues is the driver license. There have been heated debates about whether or not illegal immigrants should be allowed to obtain a driving license. Those who believe they should not,….
During the years immigrants have proven a great talent in exact sciences and professions, i.e. information technology and engineering. They are hard working and more serious and manage to get ahead of the students born in the United States. Moreover, these are also the most important fields of business where brain-drain is mostly applied. Whole American IT companies function almost entirely on employees that have not been born in the United States.
Most statistics compare immigrants with persons born in the United States to determine what both groups have to offer in terms of labor and economic growth. One of the things that are taken into consideration herein is the medium level of education that the two groups posses. It seems that the persons born in the United States have an average of 12.5 years of study, while the immigrants only 10.7 years. However this is not a fair evaluation as….
Take, for example, the entertainment industry; Hollywood has set the world's standard for movies, and that has largely been due to immigrants or the early-generation Americans. Americans have a diverse selection of art, music, and food, due to the immigrant population. Put succinctly, there would be no modern America without immigrants.
Immigrants from the Ukraine are particularly attractive as immigrants. Ukrainians are, in general, very pro-western and pro-American. English is taught in most Ukrainian public schools, so that many immigrants from Ukraine do not have a considerable language barrier when immigrating to the United States. Therefore, while Ukrainians may initially head to ethnic neighborhoods, they are not cultural isolationists like immigrants from some other non-English speaking countries. Furthermore, while the Ukraine is traditionally an agricultural area that does not mean that education in the Ukraine is sub-par. There are many highly-educated Ukrainians who have immigrated to the United States, bringing….
The country was itself full of immigrants that were permitted to perform their professional and technical services and advocacy to strengthen the industrial performance of the country, and fulfill the shortage of the required manpower. The return of the migrants further supported the local government in its quest of introducing economic and industrial reforms in the country. However at parallel the government also invited and allowed the inflow of the foreign workers to handle the distribution of manpower efficiently.

Teaching, Learning and Immigrants in Classroom
With reference to Nieto (1999), culture is described as the constantly changing customs and values, political and social affiliations as well as worldview developed, shared and transformed by group of individuals bound be a combination of different factors which could include a shared history, language, religion, social class, and geographical location (p. 78).
There are two issues which ought to be understood if culture is to have whatsoever meaning for teachers who wish to have an understanding of how it is actually connected to learning. Firstly, culture should be perceived in an unsentimental manner. Otherwise, it is at times a little more than a desire for a past which never actually existed, or a sanitized, idealized version of what it is in reality. Secondly, the culture's sociopolitical context should be recognized; cultures are situated in specific social, economic, political, and historical conditions and….

Party Machines and Immigrants
The objective of this study is to discuss party machines and immigration from the 19th Century and the methods used to manipulate immigrant votes as reported in the work of Swanstrom (2012) entitled "City Politics" in Chapter 3. Swanstrom writes that the imagery in the "smoke-filled rooms in the back of taverns" as fat politicians who smoked the cigars and passed out "buckets of coal to poor widows" as they made deals has a "sacred place in the lore of American politics." (p.49) While the politician was very committed to those who were loyal to his party at the same time those politicians were self-centered and highly dishonest. The entire syst5em was very much corrupt. Swamstrom writes that the "urban machines were organizations held together by a combination of ethnic identity and partisan loyalty." (p.50) But there were also reported as "hierarchical and disciplined, often controlled by….
Courtship Arranged Marriages and the Romantic Meaning of Love The primary theme of The Immigrant Advantage by Kolker is that immigrants to America bring something with them in their cultures and communities that Americans can learn from. They have certain traits or habits that Americans could benefit from having if they stopped long enough to learn from their immigrant neighbors. Kolker highlights these good traits and shows how they work for immigrants. For example, she focuses each chapter on a specific lesson that immigrant groups provide through their own cultural experiences. The first chapter shows how to save money and uses the Vietnamese immigrants in America as the case study for this good habit. The second chapter focuses on how to take care of one’s parents and looks at the Hispanic-American culture for this lesson. The third chapter looks at the courting rituals of South Asian immigrants in America and shows….
Indians are one immigrant group that is among the top immigrant groups in the U.S. Indeed, after Mexicans, Indians make up the largest immigrant population in America (Zong & Batalova, 2017). Many individuals in this population are skilled workers, particularly in the information technology (IT) sector, and have been awarded visas as part of the U.S.’s H-1B temporary visa program, which often serves as the gateway to becoming citizens. Other Indians have expanded into the restaurant business and the gas station/convenience store industry in the U.S. Indians typically make more money than the average American in the U.S. and are thus considered part of the middle to upper-middle class, with average annual incomes of over $100,000 (Zong & Batalova, 2017). Their socioeconomic status is good in the economic sense; however, Indians are still portrayed in popular media (from The Simpsons to Deadpool) as being outside the norm.

Immigrant Chinese omen in Canada
Immigrant Histories: Chinese omen in Canada
Nothing is as difficult and as painful as uprooting oneself or one's family for a new life in a strange land. However, many have had to do so throughout history, to not only survive, but also to prosper. The New orld, fabled for its freedoms and its promises of riches, has appealed to many people across this vast world. This appeal has reached as far as China, parts of whose population started their voyage to North America almost 150 years ago (Multicultural History Society of Ontario [MHSO], 2001). This research will examine a brief history of the Chinese population in Canada, starting at the turn of the century, and will continue by describing this population's lifestyle, complete with its problems, its disappointments and its successes, in detail.

With his help the family survived the ordeal of living in a big city.
The racism so common against people of Southern European descent hurt Lorenzo as a child, there was one instance where he was walking down a street to return a pan his mother had borrowed from a friend. A few 'tall white kids', as he called them, kicked the pan out of his hands and beat him down. They called him cruel names, and then left him to cry home.
Lorenzo had to endure this constant torment as he grew up, but it was nothing compared to what his parents suffered. In Spain Sofia Baltasar had been a loving and caring mother of two, educating and raising them from birth. In Boston she had to work five hours a day sewing up uniforms for the men in action. Instead of taking care of Bonita and Lorenzo, she was….
There were a lot of white people around, and many of them were angry that the blacks had been freed. Some of them were actually hostile toward the blacks and their newfound freedom, so the blacks learned quickly that they had to be careful. They needed to settle a little bit away from the hostile whites and do their best not to make waves or cause trouble, in the hopes that they might one day be accepted (Reconstruction, 2002).
During the first few years after the Emancipation Proclamation and the subsequent freedom of all blacks in the United States, many blacks began working very hard to educate themselves. In there minds, education meant the ability to negotiate with whites over land, earn a fair wage to pay for it, and take care of their families. lack families were often large, so many of the members could work to help support….
