ben uitermarkt's insight:

This article is really good. It points out the good and bad stuff with letting immigrants into the U.S. The best one is that the bill shouldnt be passed because it is allowing the immigrants in with out any stipulations. And they dont think it is fair to teach them american history if they have to come here illeagaly and then think they are a loud here with out having any problems.

America is a nation of immigrants. It is our past, our present and our future.
ben uitermarkt's insight:

This article is about how the U.S. needs to fix its "broken" immigration laws. It says that the congress needs to step in and do something about it. It also says that the immigrants are what help the U.S. make money.

Tuscaloosa Hispanic population decreasing due to tornado, immigration law - al.com (blog) | Hispanic Immigration | Scoop.it
ATLANTA — The federal government asked an appeals court Friday to stop Alabama officials from enforcing a strict immigration law that has already driven Hispanic students from public schools and migrant workers from towns, warning that it opens thedoor to discrimination against even legal residents.

ben uitermarkt's insight:

The immigrants in Tuscaloosa Alabama are leaving because of a new law that makes it ileagal to hire people who are there ileagaly. The Alabama law states the any police man can arrest anyone suspected to be a ilegal immigrant. This is the second time this year where a rapid decrease in ilegal immigrants have left Tuscoloosa. The first is after the tornado that hit Tuscoloosa.

This article is about how after the big tornado in Tuscaloosa they passed a law saying they cant hire a illegal immigrants at all and they have to check very hard to make sure.

Parker Cruz Van Zante's comment, October 4, 2013 11:49 AM
Yes very true colton, this article is about a tornado in Tuscaloosa they passed a law saying they cant hire latinos aka hispanics. I think that they should hire Latinos because they are important. With the increasing population we will see how it will effect the future. Also it is happening in Canada so they could go through the same thing.

With this strict law it is driving the hispanics out of Alabama and into other states or back to where they came from.

This article is good because it show how much of a influence the lation and African Americans have on our decisions. It says that the lation and African Americans are pushing congrees to pass a bill for them so that they can get citizenship. But I dont like how they are trying to leagalize 11 million immigrants with it.

I think this a good article that can show how immigration can affect the US. They can change our culture and bring new belief to us as well. I think they can also get rid of some cultures if they populate a city or area.
Robert Sales's curator insight, October 1, 2013 11:14 PM

I think this article just goes to show that Hispanics are everwhere. In the map above people focus in on the red or most populated area with Hispanics. This proves/show that Hispanics are and can be parts of the American culture and lifestye. This also shows that not all Hispanic imagrints come from Mexico into the U.S to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. Ture they are more dense population of Hispanics there but they are everywhere

 

Colton Williams's curator insight, October 3, 2013 11:19 PM

This article is about how hispanic immigration culture has effected the city of Miami becasue its so close to Cuba. This is important becasue as we go more done in the future I believe more cities in the North will be overpopulated of hispanic immigration that it will effect the culture

In this article it says that over 30 hispanic groups press congrees to pass a law called Uniting American Families Act.  It is also helping with trying to get the latinos votes in the elections. The new law is to try to get rid of discrimination on ilegal immigrants.

I think this action speaks volumes regarding the support like-minded immigration groups are extending to binational, same-sex couples. Our "cause" is definitely gaining momentum; it is up to each one of us to keep the movement going! Please get involved - thank you!
Payton Belloma's curator insight, October 1, 2013 9:26 AM

I think this article is very interesting. I think it's cool how the organizations are fighting to make immigration and equal and fair thing for everyone, of any race. They are trying to keep families together, which I think is a very important thing.

Wyoming Hispanic community celebrates Senate immigration reform

Thursday's vote was the first step, and it's an emotional day for the Hispanic community and other immigrants in West Michigan.
ben uitermarkt's insight:

In Michigan they are trying to pass a law that will let 11 million immigrants try to get the citizenship over 13 years.  But the bill still needs to be approved by the house of represenitives. On June 27th they got their wish and they voted in it and it was a big improvement. Now it has made it to congress and that is where it sits so far.

I understand why they want to immigrate to the U.S., but I think they should have gotten U.S. citizenship and LEGALLY immigrated.
Saghit Rethmeier's curator insight, October 2, 2013 1:51 PM

It really nice to see that reform is being made and how happy it makes hispanic families knowing that they can now work to become a citizen and be able to stay with thier families

 

josh dekoning's comment, October 2, 2013 1:57 PM
I think that is a good thing that they can do this and don't get deported back to their home country.
