Immigration reform spelled a-m-n-e-s-t-y

Immigration reform spelled a-m-n-e-s-t-y | Hispanic Immagration | Scoop.it
Nothing is dividing Republicans like immigration.
Some in the GOP think they need to back immigration reform because they believe weak Hispanic support cost Mitt Romney the 2012 election.

Payton Belloma's insight:

It's very interesting to see a group of people (republicans) split over the same thing. Normally, republicans or any legal group share the same ideas. But, for some reason on this issue, there is a very strong dissagreement between the group.

I agree that this was interesting. It was interesting to see a group of people split over one thing. I would never think that this would happen especially if they all believe and think the same thing
Diana Romero's comment, October 3, 2013 9:04 PM
I also agree that this is an interesting topic. It shows how correlative both government systems are becoming and agreeing to make a dispute to come to one affective decision.

Immigration is bad because most of the immigrants are bringing drugs into our country which is making it worst.

Payton Belloma's insight:

I thought this article was very cool. It was nice to see people so happy because there families will get the chance to work here and become a legal citizen. Now, their families don't have to split up, they get to stay together.

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 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.

Boom Time Over for Illegal Immigration, Study Finds

Payton Belloma's insight:

I think our government is handling this situation the wrong way. They should not delay a path to citizenship for Hispanics. They maybe should control the situation at the source and stop the illegal immigrants. They need to find a way to control it.

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.

How 5 Decades of Hispanic Immigration Gave Miami Its Own Unique English Dialect

How 5 Decades of Hispanic Immigration Gave Miami Its Own Unique English Dialect | Hispanic Immagration | Scoop.it
Even native English speakers now sound slightly Latino.
Payton Belloma's insight:

I think this is a very important topic. It shows how the Hispanic immigration has affected the Miami culture. It shows how over the years the culture has been affected. It makes me wonder how much more the hispanic culture will affect everywhere in another decade or so

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

National Hispanic Organizations Call for Passage of the Uniting American Families Act

National Hispanic Organizations Call for Passage of the Uniting American Families Act | Hispanic Immagration | Scoop.it

In a strong showing of support, over thirty Hispanic national organizations with considerable clout today urged Congress to pass immigration reform including the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA) as part of the 2012 National Hispanic Leadership Agenda.

 

This is good news that speaks volumes about the work members of LGBT organizations like Immigration Equality and Out4Immigration do in building coalitions with Hispanic immigration rights groups. Having supported comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) and the DREAM Act, these groups have lent their support in return to same-sex binational couples.

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.

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!
ben uitermarkt's curator insight, October 3, 2013 7:41 PM

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.

This article is very important. I don't agree with the things said by one politician. Saying Mexicans are just coming and bringing drugs into the US.  Which makes me realize that sterotypes are still very alive today.

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.

Diana Romero's comment, October 3, 2013 9:08 PM
I concur that this article isn't just trying to show how "More hispanics are active in social media than other ethnicities". I think the public wants to inform how it may be a bother that there is a large amount of one ethnic group in the country, when in reality it is all equal because America is a land of immigrants.
