Immigration by Michael Ramirez

Immigration is the action of coming to live permanently in a foreign country. I am being affected because half of my part of my family is from Mexico. Some of my family is an immigrant from Mexico and most of my friends are from Mexico.

Protest of a immigration law

Before 1965, immigrants coming to American shores had been primarily European. The legislation, also called the Hart-Celler Act, ended the former system of placing quotas on immigrants by national origin, instead prioritizing skilled workers and family members.

Today, one in five immigrants in the world reside in the United States, according to the Pew Research Center report released Monday. Those immigrants and their children have contributed an estimated 55% of the country's population growth during that time; the U.S. population currently stands at almost 322 million. By 2065, nearly 20% of people in the country will have been born outside of American borders.

In 50 years I think immigration won’t be such a deal as it is now. In the future I think this because everyone will learn to get together and work together no matter where you are from.

The most vital people to your movement would be the immigrants because they are the ones that are being opposed to this problem so they would want to stop this problem.

I can go protest with the other people on immigration problem.
