Abstract

A small, but observable amount of undocumented immigrants come from Asian countries, primarily south and eastern Asian countries. Pew statisticians place that number at approximately four percent (475,000) of the undocumented population (Batalova, Terrazas, 2010).
According to Tony Choi, a South Korean illegal immigrant who has been in the United States since he was 8, “Many Asians consider schooling, and life in general, in the West as superior to that in their home countries. Moving to the United States, particularly in pursuit of better education, can be part of an upward strategy for many South Koreans who later become unauthorized immigrants” (Lim 2013). Choi and his family came to the United States during the financial crisis of 1997 due to his father’s failed business.
Often documented immigrants come for educational purposes but do not understand the visa program, and apply for a tourist visa which runs out very quickly. They end up staying ignorantly beyond their authorized time in pursuit of a better education and employment opportunities.
One of the largely overlooked aspects of the North American Free Trade Agreement is how the trade pact catapulted illegal immigrants over the borders in record numbers.
A flood of highly subsidized corn inundating the Mexican market has exiled millions of rural farmers. Prior to the enactment of NAFTA, Mexican bureaucrats claimed that manufacturing jobs would fill the void left by vanishing jobs on family farms.
The Mexican President, Carlos Salinas, assured the citizens of his nation that NAFTA would result in the “export of goods, not people.” (UC Davis, 2000). However, that is a very distant reality. Since NAFTA was signed, illegal immigrants in the U.S. has ballooned to an estimated 12 million from 3.9 million in 1993. Accounting for a total…...

Senior Citizens

...Conclusion As a conclusion, we as the younger generation should take better care of our senior citizens. Take care of their welfare and shower them with love like what we want ourselves to be treated by our younger generation when we are old. Family members, government agencies and non-government agencies should work together hand-in-hand to provide senior citizens with proper aids and support to enable them to live happily and comfortably. During my time working with this project visiting institutions and sitting down talking with a few elderly persons it made me realize that no matter what age you are or the state you are in you should be treated as any other regular person with respect. Senior Citizens are Human Beings, these people have feelings too. (Psalm 92:14) They will still yield fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap and very green. The Senior Citizen's Center was the idea of Sir. Clement Maynard, who along with a committee continues as a group to raise funds to complete the project and assist with its up keep. The Ministry of Housing and Social Development is responsible for the management of the Centre as well as assisting in the upkeep of the building and its surroundings. The Centre became operational on April 15, 1991 The purpose of the Day Care Centre is to provide a place for seniors who would otherwise spend the greater portion of their day alone. At the Centre, the seniors participate in supervised organized......

Border Citizens

...Border Citizens It is easy to characterize the history of the American West from 1865 to 1912 after reading Eric Meek’s “Border Citizens: The Making of Indians, Mexicans, and Anglos in Arizona.” In the first chapter, Meek mentions how ‘hundreds of Americans moved into the territory to improve their fortunes” (15). The United States changed dramatically from 1865 to 1912. The Southwest went through many changes as well during these times. Many changes occurred in industrialization, foreign affairs, government, as well as in society and culture. The events that took place within this time period helped shape this country into what it is today. It affected Native Americans in many ways; some beneficial, some not so much. In the first half of Eric Meek’s Border Citizens, he writes about the ethnic heterogeneity in Arizona between 1850 and 1920. He discusses agriculture, its mechanization, and the growth of several industries in the state, including mining. During the 1830s and 1840s about 100,000 Natives were moved west. The tragic “Trail of Tears” was part of this era, and so were the first western Native American reservations. The continued westward movement frustrated the attempts of U.S. policy makers to achieve a peaceful solution to the Native American problem. When many of these removed tribes signed military pledges of support for the Confederacy during the Civil War, further excuses for taking their land were now available for the many voices of Manifest......

Citizen United

...thirty days before a primary election or sixty days before a general election, and which pertains to a distinctly identified prospect for Federal office. Citizens United agreed that its planned VOD broadcast and advertisements of The Movie fall within this definition of “electioneering communication”, qualifying them nonexempt from three applicable restrictions under The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA). First, BCRA forbids Citizens United from using its corporate finances to air “electioneering communication” in order to suggest how an observer should vote. Second, if Citizens United achieves the first obligation, BCRA expects Citizens United to expose the personal identities of individuals who gave more than one thousand dollars towards, the creation of The Movie. Lastly, BCRA expects Citizens United to disclose for a minimum of four seconds a written disclaimer in its promotional material expressing it is accountable for the contents (Lindbloom & Terranova, 2009). Who else has power over the Issue? Each of our three branches of government have expressed their concerns on the issue of what role corporations should represent in politics and, just for a moment, the Court is in an unexpected place with both of the other two branches and with itself. Congress our legislative branch, was the first to speak on the Citizens United case. Relying on years of related precedent and legislation, Congress cautiously enacted and crafted the confining standard: The Bipartisan......

Citizen Cane

...“Citizen Cane” By Fran-Marie Grant English Comp I EN1010 10/28/13 http://www.wsmuseum.com/wshist.html/ The White Settlement area was settled beginning in 1850. The first settlers were farmers from other states such as Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, etc. The area was referred to as White Settlement because it was the only community outside the fort (Fort Worth) that was settled entirely by white people. All of the other communities were mixed Indian and Whites. The area was about 10 miles west of the Fort. Early settlers were harassed by hostile Indians...but soon made friends of them and did considerable trading with those in the area. The land was rich and produced bumper crops of corn, grain, etc. A mill was established and the area did considerable trading, not only with the Indians, but other whites in the vicinity. The community remained more or less the same until 1940, when a bomber plant was built on the shores of Lake Worth in the area. The government built temporary housing for workers and businesses were established. In 1941 the city was incorporated and after the war continued to grow with the General Dynamics plant and other businesses. No farms remain within the city limits today. The community itself is rich in sales taxes and motel taxes and provides great parks, a public library, recreation department, senior services and first class fire and police protection. It is completely surrounded by Fort Worth, but...

Citizen Kane

...Between Dreams and Reality: The Citizen Kane Effect “If I hadn’t been very rich, I might have been a really great man.” Charles Kane has said to audiences since 1941. Citizen Kane has been a staple in the classrooms of film studies as well as on lists of classic movies. Although meant to have been premiered on February 14, 1941 at Radio City Music Hall, the intense threats of William Randolph Hearst, who it is believed Orson Welles modeled the fictional character of Kane from, caused most theatres unwilling to risk backlash and thus striking the film from their show lineups. Financial success at the box office was assured to be nonexistent and eventually caused Welles departure from RKO Studios and restricted direction freedom on his future projects. The controversy surrounding the film didn’t stop there. True authorship will forever be debated with credit being distributed between co-writers Mankiewicz and Welles. Although either side you take gain perspective on the core audience they developed their groundbreaking story for and undoubtably had the greatest impact on: the middle class liberal males of the 1940’s and 1950’s. “The people are going to see Citizen Kane, and not one of them will be quite the same person after seeing it as he was before. It is profoundly moving an experience as only this extraordinary and hitherto unexplored medium of sound-cinema can afford in two hours.

The Unknown Citizen

...English 1020 Zhang zewei B00637895 The Unknown Citizen Analysis “The Unknown Citizen”, was written by W. H Auden during the 1920s and 30s, he reflected the major social issue of regulation was people facing in that era by using unknown citizen as a narrator with his own unique way. This poem criticizes regulation and normality, replacing individualism and liberalism. Frist of all, the title of this poem “The Unknown Citizen” indicates that a normal person will lose their individuality. With strong vocabulary and language the poem builds an overall atmosphere, which punctuates author’s points. Ironically, at the end of the poem there are two important questions “Was he free? Was he happy?” these questions add depth and meaning to this poem. In this poem the voice of a fictional government bureaucrat who sat in the office and shuffled documents every day, whose decisions would impact peoples’ lives; we do not know who he is. The clue of the information about this person derived from “Bureau of Statistics”, it tries to show the readers that everyone is typical and normal; therefore people will no longer be individual people. He is an unknown citizen because he just a typical person. More and more advanced technology showed up in this modern world as if humanity is beginning to fade away. It seems like human are increasingly becoming unknown citizens. The man in this poem is someone who lost his individually, and lost the concept of happiness,......

Wells deserves a National Holiday to honor her civic and political participation for women’s suffrage and civil rights. Even though she was a teacher in her early life, at a young age, Ida B. Wells witnessed the lynchings of young African-Americans and wanted to make change. From there, she eventually became a journalist and became part-owner of the Memphis Free Speech. Wells was an active journalist that exposed the harshness of the lynchings that occurred, and was an active women’s rights suffrage supporter. Commonly in these times, she would’ve been considered a “muckraker”. Politically, she was an active citizen who wanted to tell the public what was going on in the African American culture, and because of this, she showed how being participating in government can affect what happens in the legislative and judicial branch.

Citizen Kane

...Welles Citizen Kane continues to engage and persuade audiences through its cinematic treatment of ambition and corruption Welles film explores the fragility that frames human experience. To what extent does this statement encapsulate your views of the text The complexity of the human experience is shaped by individual’s attitudes, morals and perceptions. Orson Welles Citizen Kane explores this complexity through its portrayal of media tycoon Charles Kane, highlighting the centrality of ambition and corruption in an individual’s pursuit of power and relationships. Wells employs avant grande cinematography to engage and persuade the audience of the instability of the human experience. Citizen Kane demonstrates how despite the individuals desire for relationships; their ability to forge connections can be undermined by their personal perceptions and ideals. Kane’s moral vacuity and ambitious nature is central to his inability to sustain meaningful relationships. Leland apathy notes, “All he (Kane) ever wanted out of life was love”, with this desire for love resonating in the motif of ‘Rosebud’, emblematic of his mothers love. Nonetheless, Kane’s superficial pursuit of transient pleasures and ambition results in the corruption of his relationships. This is accentuated in the breakfast montage, which depicts Kane and his wife Emily at progressive breakfasts throughout the course of their marriage. To begin with Kane seems to be the ideal husband – he compliments her,......

Citizen Participation

...recognition that there are different levels of participation, from manipulation or therapy Participation: A theoretical context 1 of citizens, through to consultation, and to what we might now view as genuine participation, i.e. the levels of partnership and citizen control (see figure 1). The limitations of Arnstein’s framework are obvious. Each of the steps represents a very broad category, within which there are likely to be a wide range of experiences. For example, at the level of ‘informing’ there could be significant differences in the type and quality of the information being conveyed. Realistically therefore, levels of participation are likely to reflex a more complex continuum than a simple series of steps. The use of a ladder also implies that more control is always better than less control. However, increased control may not always be desired by the community and increased control without the necessary support may result in failure. Figure 1: A ladder of participation (Arnstein, 1969) 2.2 A ladder of citizen empowerment Since Arnstein, increasingly complex theories of participation have been advanced and new terminology added. In particular, there has been a shift towards understanding participation in terms of the empowerment of individuals and communities. This has stemmed from the growing prominence of the idea of the citizen as consumer, where choice among alternatives is seen as a means of access to power. Under this model, people are expected to be......

...did not have a way of receiving news so they heard about the Emancipation Proclamation over time, and were in shock when they heard the good news (Emancipation). The Emancipation was a great thing for African Americans. They were finally free from the institution of Slavery at last. However, the initial shock wore off they realized that they were free, but definitely not equal. They were discriminated against for the color of their skin. They were not given the same opportunities that free white citizens. They were terrorized for moving into white neighborhoods. They were prevented from entering white schools, restaurants or bathrooms. African Americans did have their own schools, restaurants, and public bathrooms except they were kept in horrible condition by the city. This established the though of “Separate but Equal”. This thought was meant o keep white people and black people separate in everyday life. Most white Americans thought that African Americans were second class citizens. White Americans did not want to mingle with their black counterparts. Everything given to a white person by the government was also given to a black person. However, the black person’s version was usually beat up and barely usable. This started many stirs in Black Communities. They wanted to be truly equal to whites. Many African Americans started to rebel, and the true Civil Rights Movement started (Emancipation). The Civil Rights Movement had a lot of major turning points, and was a hard......

Over these past years some of my neighbors became sick and some even fatally have fallen to an explainable sickness. Many of my neighbors have expressed similar the symptoms of each other. I decided to move to West Over a few years ago, when they offered the luxury of living close to the city but with the amenities that of most outer city living.

Citizen Kane

...sled, seemingly lost amongst the hoards of stuff. The other items, while expensive, contain a monetary value that does little to create happiness, while on the other hand, the sled worth very little money, contains the most sentimental value for Kane, which symbolizes family and a joyful childhood experience. I think the moral of the story is that happiness doesn’t come from expensive material things, but from the value within family and friendships. Citizen Kane is a powerful film about a misunderstood man, who through his misfortune delivers an important message. The parallelism between Charles Foster Kane and Jededia shows a friendship that breaks down and a deterioration in all the idealistic principles that Kane once stood for. The Rosebud embodied the values of family and all the truly important things in life and contrasts with all of the meaningless monetary items that Kane owned. The narration created an intriguing story that left you wanting to know more by restricting what information it gave you. Citizen Kane was a unique and refreshing film and is now one of my favorite films....

Senior Citizens

...Society perceive senior citizens do not have or enjoy engaging in sexual activities. However, sexuality is part of what makes their lives full and rich. In a sample of adults over the age of 60, 60% stated that their sex drive was better today than in their 40s. (p.395) Older adults who are healthy and have less illnesses have better sexual functions compared to those with poor health and suffer from an illness. Of course many senior citizens have learned a lot about sex throughout their lives but society changes which mean lesson about sexual activity and the risk behind it does also. Unfortunately, 61% older adults who are singles are have had unprotected sex which is part of the rise of HIV/AIDS in this age group. (p.396) It is curial for the to know condom use is very important when engaging in sexual activities even thought they have gone through menopause and are not at risk in becoming pregnant, hysterectomies, or vasectomies. Many healthcare professionals do not screen older adults for STIs however I believe encouraging them to ask their doctors when visiting the clinic is important after having unprotected sex. For women, menopause and HIV/AIDS have similar symptoms such as: hot flashes, depression, and night sweats. For men, HIV/AIDS and Alzheimer's both includes symptoms of weight loss, fatigue and dementia. It is important for them to see their doctor because early treatment can help them live longer and to inform them that they are still sexuality active for...
