The United States is a nation of immigrants. Everyone’s ancestor, at one point, migrated to this land, from the Native Americans who migrated looking for food, to the Europeans “Discovering America” to today’s large diversity within the people of the U.S. We all Immigrated to this land. We found this land to be our Home. To get to this land, immigrants face so many obstacles and challenges, some in their way to the U.S and other challenges wait for them in the U.S. The challenges are nothing for they have a dream, a dream of being someone, a dreaming of being happy.
There are so many different reasons to why people immigrate to the United States. Some came to the U.S. in seek of political and religious refuge, a great example of this are Cubans. Many Cubans came to the use ...view middle of the document...
In so many cultures, education is key and it makes their future secure, for parents education is the best they can give to their children.
Immigrants face challenges while trying to get to the U.S. It is no easy leaving your home and moving to a different country, especially when the people you care stay behind. Sacrifices must be made for family. Some obstacles that people face during their odyssey to the U.S is death. People die while immigrating to the U.S. Some people don’t know anyone and might even be homeless for days. Another great challenge that immigrants face is the culture and language barrier. Many immigrants are illiterate and barely know how to read and write in their native language, learning a second language seems so impossible it creates a huge challenge for them.
Immigrants face so many challenges but illegal immigrants seem to have it even harder. There are so many laws that against immigration and it makes it difficult for people to live without fear of being deported having their dreams crumble down. It is understandable that the country wants to have a control on the population, but I believe that if there weren’t so many hard laws regarding immigration and if it was easier for people to come into this nation, people would not stay here so much, they would go home with such ease resulting in less people leaving here. I see this as teenagers see the “don’t do this”, the more it’s difficult to get or do something the more people want to do it. Laws are important, but these laws must be always for the benefit of the people, laws should be right and just.
There is an endless list of challenges that immigrants have to face, but even though they face so many challenges they are happy to be part of this wonderful nation. The U.S. is so special for its diversity, and it would not be the same without immigrants.
