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

I understand why they want to immigrate to the U.S., but I think they should have gotten U.S. citizenship and LEGALLY immigrated.
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.
ben uitermarkt's curator insight, October 3, 2013 7:52 PM

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.

Illegal immigration may be rising again — after years of decline | Hispanic Immigration | Scoop.it
A new Pew survey estimates that there were 11.7 million unauthorized immigrants in the United States in 2012—up from previous years.
Saghit Rethmeier's insight:

I think its interesting that it the numbers are starting to rise again. It interesting to see what could be causing this. I wonder how the us will handle this and what steps they will take to prevent the numbers from rising to an even further level

It really strikes a question for the U.S. because what are we supposed to do now with them. It keeps getting worse but a negative with the mexico border and the U.S. border is drugs moving in and out of the country which is creating issues we do not need. We need to figure out a solution to decrease the numbers appropriately and with strategy plus logic.
Michael Karnes's comment, October 3, 2013 2:24 PM
it is interesting to think about how the immigrants are rising after we have massive border patrols and they are still getting in?
Lucas Duenwald's comment, October 8, 2013 7:58 PM
How do the illegal immigrants get in? like michael karnes said, We are improving our border patrole. Maybe It is from a while back and we are just now catching them?

it really does seem like people with different ethnic backrounds get seperated from the pack at first glance and placed in a "group" with others of those ethnisities almost subconsiously

House Immigration Group Close To Dead | Hispanic Immigration | Scoop.it
An effort by a bipartisan House group to create a comprehensive immigration reform bill has stalled, group member Rep.
Saghit Rethmeier's insight:

I think this article is important because it shows alot of stereotypes and things that people believe about immigration. I dont agree compltely with what is said here. There was one politician who talked about how most of the mexicans coming across are dragging drugs with them. While drugs being brought back and forth is a major problem, i dont think its fair to bunch up all immagrants as being drug dealers. Some are coming to work hard and make a better life for themselves.

I also think that this article is important. I believe there are sterotypes in this article and I don't think that is right because it can hurt certain people or even a whole culture.

Even native English speakers now sound slightly Latino.

Via Planet Veritas - Language News, Payton Belloma
Saghit Rethmeier's insight:

This is important because it shows how much the latino community has affected the U.S. and its culture, Latino immigrants are no longer just their own seperate group, Whites, Latinos and all other races co exist and influence eatchother in many ways. The united states culture will forever be affected by the latino culture

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

This article Is very interesting. It talks about how the picture you see is by a famous artist in miami. She made this and it was all they talked about it. But now it is just another painting on the walls like graffiti.

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

Saghit Rethmeier's insight:

What would be the right way to handle the boom of illegal immagration? would it be doubling the task force or building a complete wall? Im really not sure, what i do know is postponing a path to citizenship is not a good idea and not what should be done at this time.

Haley Abrams's curator insight, April 30, 2014 11:41 PM

I found this article very interesting because of its corresponding to our class. I did not find this number hard to believe while i do know that border patrol are doing a great job catching these illegal immigrants they are not catching all. Many are slipping through and reaching America. I think that they should increase the amount of agents patrolling these regions to prevent more immigrants form coming in illegally. While I do know that this will cost more  i believe that this could help pay for its self if continues long enough with lasting results.

Ann Marie Rydberg's comment, May 2, 2014 8:30 PM
I agree with Haley that the problem of illegal immigration needs to be addressed soon. However, I think that it is extremely difficult to prevent people from crossing the border illegally. I think that more focus should be placed on getting potential immigrants here legally which would stimulate the economy and reduce the rate of illegal immigration.

Immigration advocates mock House GOP in parody video | Hispanic Immigration | Scoop.it
Advocates who are pushing for immigration reform made a parody of a House Republican video that aims to reach out to Latino voters.
Saghit Rethmeier's insight:

This article is a must read, If the safe act bill is passed then that would lead to racial profiling and mistreatment. Also if it will be passed then their needs to be a path to citizenship. The house needs to actually solve this issue. Just making a month Hispanic herritage month doesnt fix the fact that nothing is being done.
