Denise Scott's insight:

Vietnam Ranks 7th in u.s. immigration. 2013. picture. markashwill.com. june 2013. web. july 2014.

This image shows the united states made out of several faces of different races. This image is an accurate representation of america today as well as how america was founded. The use of so many different faces represents that the United states is a blended nation founded from immigrants. This image represents that immigrants help to make this country what it is today. The idea that this image is representing is a powerful one, this image shows that immigrants do in fact belong in the united states. somehow this images and its representation is lost in the battle on immigration reform. Instead america is actively seeking to keep illegal immigrants from becoming legal citizens. A ridiculous effort since immigrants are the frame work that have shaped america for centuries. yet,  politicians are currently choosing to turn there back on thousands of immigrants that are seeking to become legal parts of society. currently, there are no regulations that will speed up the process of citizenship for illegal   immigrants that are positive contributors  to america. somehow american has forgotten that illegal immigrants have help to build america in to a great nation of blended races and ethnicities this image represents.

Denise Scott's insight:

Senate's Immigration Reform Bill Is Declared Dead At One Year Old." All Things Considered 26 June 2014. Opposing Viewpoints in Context. Web. 8 July 2014.

This podcast explains the failed attempts made by the government to create an obtainable path to citizen ship. This recording mentions the year long struggle on immigration. This bill would of given the 11 million illegal immigrants living in the us an obtainable path to citizenship but unfortunately the senate only partially approved  the bill due to pressure from conservative law makers. actions like this from congress make it impossible to provide these well deserving immigrants the right to be called american. in this broadcast Illinois representative Gutierrez addressed the house with use of sports analogies hoping that his pleas would not go unanswered. His analogies were addressing the fact that Republicans would never allow the bill to pass.In this podcast discretionary cheer-man Bob Goodlad of Virginia lays the blame for overwhelming serge in illegal boarder crossing on the president. He argues that the cause of a current boarder issues are that of a two year old decision to allow illegal children to stay in the us. That is utterly ridiculous. instead of statements about the cause congress needs to be addressing the solution. current efforts to stop and detail illegals are just not working. not even an executive decision from the president to allow the path to citizenship bill to pass will work with out the senate. law makers need to wake up and realize that a path to citizenship is the only way to stop boarder crossing.

Mr. Obama, Go Big on Immigration

Mr. Obama, Go Big on Immigration | path to citizenship | Scoop.it
The president, having finally freed himself from Republican obstructionists, should do his utmost to fix an obsolete, unjust system.
Denise Scott's insight:

The editorial board. "Mr. Obama Go Big on Immigration. The NY Times 03 July 2014. Print.

This New York times article details the recent changes that president Obama is trying to make. this articles enplanes how the president is currently taking matters into his own hands by trying to create a much needed path to citizenship. since Obama's bill will not pass with out the senate his power on this important issue is limited. with in the law President Obama cannot right into legislation a path to citizenship making and efforts with out support of the senate temporary. As explained in this article the lack of support for the bill will only hurt the economy. weather senate chooses to believe it or not  illegal immigrants do work and contribute the the economy  in the united states. the path to capitalizing on the already illegal immigrants living in the us should start with giving the permission to stay and begin to pay taxes just this act alone will help to boost the economy. giving immigrants hope to becoming documented will also stop the crossing of the us boarders. while extremely informative this report of the intentions of president Obama is only temporary. once again with out the support of the senate any efforts made solely by president Obama are only temporary and will not solve the problem of illegals crossing the boarder.

Apply for Citizenship | USCIS

Denise Scott's insight:

U.S. Government." Apply for Citizenship"uscis.gov. u.s. goverenment. 02 October 2011. web. 06 july 2014. 

this government website provides detailed step by step guidelines to obtaining citizenship. this governmental website takes any potential citizen step by step through all the requirements to obtaining citizenship. this process of obtaining citizenship, Although completely detailed, is difficult. the average immigrant taking the time to go step by step through this process and paying a fee may still be denied. this list of seemly 100 items makes the battle to citizenship feel impossible. after reading this document the the need for an obtainable path to citizenship is even more evident. This document and its "document checklist" is entirely to much to go through and still have the chance to be denied  citizenship. not to mention the cost of all the required paperwork. instead of encouraging immigrants to apply for citizenship properly this only discourages them. after reading this checklist it is easy to understand the desperation any illegal boarder crosser may have. this document makes immigrants feel like it is the only guaranteed way to get to america.

Obama to take executive action on immigration reform

President Barack Obama announced Monday that he would try to fix the nation's immigration system on his own, taking executive action to advance long-stalled ...
Denise Scott's insight:

 Obama to take excuative action on immigration reform. PBS news org. youtube. 2014 video.

In this you tube video president Obama addresses current immigration issues. He speaks of a bill that would allow immigrants an obtainable  path to citizenship. President Obama proposes that the passing of this bill would end the mounting boarder issues. however, this bill has been before congress for a year and has yet to be signed into law. He goes on to explain that the refusal to pass this law falls on the republican and democratic house of representative . There refusal to agree to this proposed path to citizenship has led to fewer resources to strengthen the boarder. This is the cause of the current overwhelming amount of illegals interning the Unites States. His address to the people is to inform the nation that he will not stop the fight on immigration. He goes on to stress the importance of this path to citizenship by mentioning that the current system is broken and unclear leaving an open interpretation of the current immigration laws. Although Obama has decided to used his administrative power he reminds the people that he can only do so much with out congresses support. In the end the issue of immigration will not go away until congress comes up with a legitimate path to citizenship.

Obama invites Perry to meeting on border crisis

Obama invites Perry to meeting on border crisis | path to citizenship | Scoop.it
Washington (CNN) - The political sparring over the border crisis intensified Tuesday as the White House released a letter accepting Texas Gov. Rick Perry's invitation to President Barack Obama for a meeting on the issue during his trip to Texas Wednesday.
Denise Scott's insight:

Acosta, Jim. Spodak, Cassie. " Obama invites Perry to meeting on boarder crisis". politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com. cnn. 08 july 2014. web. 08 july 2014.

This cnn blogs entry was  written to give insight on the current immigration and boarder issues happening in Texas. This blog written by two cnn corespondents is extremely credible and accurately depicts the current  immigration issues. This blog states that Present Obama and Texas Governor Perry will sit down and discuss ways to handle the over whelming flow of illegals from mexico into Texas. As stated in this blog entry, currently the only effort in handling the enormous amount of illegals interring the u.s. is to detain them in temporary housing facilities. An effort that is not proving to be effective since there are talks of convert local schools into additional housing facilities. this blog is evidence that there is a larger issue at hand citizenship.President Obama needs to use his  resources on providing a path to citizenship instead of using money to convert local schools into detainee locations. temporary housing immigrants in locations across the u.s. and not allowing them to become active parts of society because they were not born on us soil is ridiculous. These so called " housing facilities" cost thousands of american tax payers dollars and do not stop immigrants from interning the country. Therefore, these facilities are useless . instead an obtainable path to citizenship would be more effective. If there was a simple and swift way for immigrants to apply for citizenship while remaining in there country until they were  approved this would stop the overwhelming flow of immigrants from interning illegally. unfortunately the u.s does not provide this option. They only way to citizenship cost money and time that many illegals just do not posses.

text book

Denise Scott's insight:

Mukherjee, Bharati. "American Dreamer". 11th ed. Ed. Gilbert Muller. New York. McGraw-hill: 2011, 434-439. Print.

 This McGraw-hill essay gives first hand insight into the struggle to become American. in this essay personal accounts from Mukherjee's path to citizenship shows  how difficult  it is to become an american. Mukherjee tells her story explaining where she came from and why she dreamed of becoming american. She details what she was required to pay as well as explaining the preparation needed in order to take a test proving her right to be american. in addition to a test and fee Mukherjee still had to await  approval to be american. this process is outdated and unnecessary. thousands of well deserving immigrants do not have money or time to pay study for a test and still await approval to inter the untied states. this is why our boarders are overflowing with illegals. in order to stop this america needs to provide and effective path to citizenship that is cost effective time effective and reasonably obtainable. this valuable information provided in this book sheds insight into a battle that american's can only see from one side, a citizens point of view. the use of this book helps to get all aspects of the path to citizenship argument.

motomura,hiroshi. "Immigration Outside the Law". Jstore vol 108. no 8. (2008). 2037-2097. Print.

This jstore essay questions the legal aspect of immigration. This essay takes on the issue of immigration by dismembering the legal argument against it. in this essay the author question the legal basis for the law to take action against illegals at all. this essay goes on to state that the law is to narrow and broad on the issue of immigration. this is where a path to citizenship would come into play. if there is confusion with current laws in place a path to citizenship could over rule all current laws and provide set way to handle every individual immigration issue. this beautifully composed essay dismembers the foundation for deportation. this essay questioning the outdated "unlawful presence" foundation that many deportations stand on. this highly reliable source makes some great points. first, if the law is re examined the senate may finally see the need for a path to citizenship. additionally, the laws that deportation are based on are outdated and no longer relevant to current immigration issues.

Immigrant moms crossing Texas border at alarming rate

Immigrant moms crossing Texas border at alarming rate | path to citizenship | Scoop.it
The Texas border is flooded with immigrant moms
Denise Scott's insight:

Jervis, rick. "Immigrant moms cross Texas boarder at allarming rate". USA today. USA today.  05 july 2014. web. 06 july 2014 

This usa today article alleges facts not mentioned in the widely spread highly publicized dilemma on immigration. in resent new the only facts that have been reported are that of children crossing the boarder yet this article alleges that there are just as many mothers crossing as children. this usa today article enplanes the desperate need for a path to citizenship by telling story's of why Illegals have fled there country. one account told in this article is of gangs taking over a school and kidnapping children. this has to be enough to grant citizenship, yet the senate will not budge. instead, as stated in this article a plan to detain the mothers that bring their children across the boarder has been proposed. the issue with this proposal is that it only creates the issue of what to do with the now unaccompanied minors. it is unthinkable that wanting a safe place for your child to grow up could be answered with jail time. instead of detaining the mothers of illegals providing an obtainable path to citizenship is the only way to stop the boarder crossing. this usa today article was relevant in the research of immigration because it provided resent boarder crossing stories from illegals and also gave cause for the crossing.

Immigration crisis: Official: ‘A tsunami of people crossing the border’

Immigration crisis: Official: ‘A tsunami of people crossing the border’ | path to citizenship | Scoop.it
The mass migration of illegal immigrants into the United States is like a “hurricane that won’t stop,” according to sources inside an organization contracted to run refugee camps for the Department of Health and Human Services.
Denise Scott's insight:

Starnes, Todd. "Immigration crisis: Official: A tsunami of people crossing the boarder". foxnews.com. foxnews. 03 July 2014. web. 06 July 2014.

This fox new article screams for an alternative to immigrant housing facilities. this article details some of the conditions inside the housing facilities for illegal immigrants. while explaining living conditions this article provides a basis for the need for a path to citizenship. the only thing offered to these illegal in search of a new beginning are sub-par over crowded facilities. specifically mentioned in this article is the Lackland facility where it is alleged that lice scabies and swine flu are running rampant. although attempts have been made like that of Oklahoma Rep. Jim Bridenstein, no official has gained access to any housing facilities. obviously housing immigrants in facilities is not the answer to controlling the boarder. the bigger issue is citizenship. once an obtainable path to citizenship is made where there is some hope that illegals can legally inter the u.s the boarder crisis will end. with out offering an alternative illegals will continue to do what is logical.
