IMMIGRATION by:Luis Casas

My topic is about IMMIGRATION and it is a big problem.People are being affected by this issue because they are being taken away from their family and they want to FIGHT BACK.I am being affected by this issue because my family that is in Austin or in other cities of Texas could get deported by the ICE and they will go back to MEXICO.With more than 11 million unauthorized immigrants living in the country, these deportations affect a wide swath of the population,5 including the undocumented and the citizen alike. Undocumented immigrants do not live separate and walled off lives from the documented, but instead live side by side in the same communities and in the same families. A total of 16.6 million people currently live in mixed-status families—with at least one unauthorized immigrant—and a third of U.S. citizen children of immigrants live in mixed-status families.6.

the history of the current furor goes back 50 years, to one of the most far-reaching laws ever enacted in the country: the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. A review of that law and its impact provides many lessons for today, notably that substantial change can be a very lengthy process and "reform" can have huge, unforeseen consequences.The Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, also known as the Hart-Celler Act, abolished an earlier quota system based on national origin and established a new immigration policy based on reuniting immigrant families and attracting skilled labor to the United States. Over the next four decades, the policies put into effect in 1965 would greatly change the demographic makeup of the American population, as immigrants entering the United States under the new legislation came increasingly from countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America, as opposed to Europe.In 1965, though, a combination of political, social and geopolitical factors led to passage of the landmark Immigration and Nationality Act that created a new system favoring family reunification and skilled immigrants, rather than country quotas. The law also imposed the first limits on immigration from the Western Hemisphere. Before then, Latin Americans had been allowed to enter the U.S. without many restrictions. Since enactment of the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, immigration has been dominated by people born in Asia and Latin America, rather than Europe.

What i predict what will it be like for this group of people 50 years from now is that everyone will be treated the same no matter if you are an immigrant or not because everyone has the rights or have the privilege to be free and do what they want with their lives.The new rights of freedom will this group of people be able to experience maybe that everyone can stay here in the united states and and that there is not going to be no more immigration.

Cesar Chavez (born César Estrada Chávez[citation needed], locally: [ˈsesaɾ esˈtɾaða ˈtʃaβes]; March 31, 1927 – April 23, 1993) was an American labor leader and civil rights activist who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association (later the United Farm Workers union, UFW) in 1962.[1] Originally a Mexican American farm worker, Chavez became the best known Latino American civil rights activist, and was strongly promoted by the American labor movement, which was eager to enroll Hispanic members. His public-relations approach to unionism and aggressive but nonviolent tactics made the farm workers' struggle a moral cause with nationwide support. By the late 1970s, his tactics had forced growers to recognize the UFW as the bargaining agent for 50,000 field workers in California and Florida. However, by the mid-1980s membership in the UFW had dwindled to around 15,000.[2

something i can do is make a group or tell others if they are with me that immigrant’s shouldn’t go back and they should stay here.If i had all the money in the world or if i had rights as a young Man i could fight for others, because everyone has the rights to stay here and do what they want for their lives so they could have a better future for themselves and for their family.
