The Immigration Process
And How It's Flawed
By: Michelle, Devin, Christopher, Ashlyn, Jasmine, Blake, Dylan, Miranda, and Samuel
Immigrants are people like you and me
Immigration is a topic that affects everyone, no matter what their political views are. Immigrants coming to America are being portrayed as ruthless criminals, when in reality, a majority only want to better their lives for themselves and their families. However, they are being stopped by the strict immigration process. Although having secure borders is critical for the safety of our nation, it is hypocritical of the United States to say that it is the land of the free, when we are preventing families from getting the freedoms they deserve just as we did years ago.
- contact your friends/neighbors
- you could tell people that immigrants are the same as us
- create an immigration awareness group
- start a petition to improve current immigration laws
