Immigrant Groups in America

Words: 1524 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 95915204

INTRODUCTION
The U.S. was formed by immigrants: they came from Europe—from England, Germany, Poland, Ireland, France, Italy, and many other countries. Later on, they began coming in from Asia, and then from Mexico—particularly during the 20th century when the Bracero Program was put into effect by the U.S. federal government to help ensure that the fields were taken care of while the men were off fighting in WW2 (Calavita 1992). This paper will compare and contrast the experiences of major immigrant groups in America and discuss the factors that account for their success or continued challenges. It will also analyze the issue of what should be the goal—whether immigrants should incorporate or assimilate—and why.

Trump Travel Ban

Words: 826 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 872451

The Trump Era travel ban has ruffled a lot of feathers. People suggest the travel ban goes against the rights of U.S. citizens, residents, and people on visa. President Donald Trump’s actions has led to fierce criticism on both the Republic and Democratic sides as well as bring about legal challenges. Many Americans agree that the temporary banning of refugees and immigration from specific countries is wrong. They agree because they feel it is not necessary in guaranteeing the safety of the United States. While the travel ban allows some Americans to feel safe during an age where terrorism dominates, it creates racial tension and hatred; additionally, banning certain countries or immigration has been done in the United States before, showing a dark side to the nation.
Terrorism is a prevailing topic across the globe. From London to France, terrorism and immigration problems have generated an uneasy atmosphere that has…… [Read More]

Asylum Seekers in Europe

Words: 532 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 30124093

Partially satisfied; though the study does not state it as a research question specifically, it does provide the focus, intent and purpose of the study in the first paragraph of the study. However, there are a series of questions that are posed at the end of the first section—and it is unclear as to whether or not these questions should be taken as the specific research questions that the study will address or if they are just being posed rhetorically to help frame the importance of the study.
Core concepts:
Not satisfied; the study’s core concepts could be more explicitly defined. The term “gender gap” should be explained more fully along with the concepts of “fleeing the home” and being an “asylum seeker”—why are they fleeing, where are they going, what is the reason for this phenomenon (is it geopolitical, economic, sociological, religious?). Likewise, what they seeking asylum from? What…… [Read More]
