A brief look into immigration and how the current administration has affected it.
Today, one of the most significant social justice issues that the United States is America is facing is immigration. When the USA was founded, it thrived because of immigrants. Immigrants from all over the world were working hard to build this nation from the ground up while exposing each other to new cultures and customs. This is what made America the powerhouse that it is known today. Now immigration is seen through a different light, especially with this current administration. Immigrants in this day and age live in fear and in the shadows; Knowing in any given moment, they can be deported, and separated from their families. After all their family is all they have, it’s because of them they came to America to work hard and provide a better life for their family. Most immigrants are good hard working people who want to give the best they can for their family. Despite this the current administration keeps on attacking immigrants and calls them bad hombres, criminals and rapists. The current administration keeps on stating that immigrants need to come to this nation legally but is making it harder to do so. What the government needs to do is make it easier for immigrants to come legally to the United States and reinforce border control. The government also needs to help immigrants that are already in the country come out of the shadows and became a part of the nation. If we do this, we might make America great again.
