Close familial bonds are apparent among Jess's family members, particularly between her parents and her sister, Pinky. Also apparent is the strong South Asian value of utmost respect for elders: despite the conflict with regard to football, Jess respects her parents, and dislikes the idea of lying to them (Nunez, M.T. & Garcia, A.J., 2014).

Impact Of Brown Vs Board Of Education

how people in poverty (racial minorities in particular), feelings about refugees and feelings about undocumented immigrants. When it comes to the last category, three recommendations that should be employed and looked at include comprehensive immigration reform, effective handling of refugees (with a lot of focus needing to be put on those from the Middle East) and an educational program that deals with both of the prior ones while not forcing people to assimilate and be the "same" as everyone in the dominant culture. Also, a lot of the groups above tend to intersect. For example, a rising share of… Continue Reading...

Kuwait Case

directed at the full citizens of Kuwait, the oil wealth has also been appealing to numerous immigrants that have benefited and profited from the employment opportunities created. However, there are negative externalities that have come about. The rent distribution system is purposed to make certain that all Kuwaitis benefit from oil rents. However, some of the channels of distribution, for instance, subsidizing utilities are degenerating in nature in the manner that wealthy households have a tendency of benefiting comparatively more in comparison to poor households from these subsidies, which is a negative externality (El-Katiri et al., 2011). References Al-Bassam,… Continue Reading...

When Work Disappears

Question 2 Historically, the U.S. has been home to immigrants from various parts of the world, including Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Today, immigrants comprise a significant proportion of the American workforce. This has affected the country's workforce as a whole. One effect of immigration is that it has increased the supply of labor. Immigration has also resulted in a more diverse workforce. Today, organizations in the U.S. have a workforce comprising individuals of American, European, Latin, African, and Asian origins. This is perhaps a good thing given that workforce diversity… Continue Reading...

had been banned in California.7  Yet, the criminality of marijuana was largely associated with immigrants and carried with it a tinge of racism:  the law was first proposed “to prevent the spread of cannabis use by ‘Hindoo’ immigrants” and later it was used as a pretext to stage raids “in the Mexican district of Los Angeles in 1914.”8 The geographical environment, in other words, where marijuana growth was of most interest to authorities was the environment where immigrants just so happened to be most in residence. However, since the passing of the Compassionate Use Act in 1996, legal dispensaries… Continue Reading...

discourage an immigrant from seeking assistance from social services or mental health facilities? immigrants face numerous obstacles to human and health services programs throughout the U.S. The obstacles are put in different categories, including the method of administration of the programs, the immigrants' identity and view of the programs as well as the attitude towards them in various states or communities. Many obstacles come from the method of program administration locally and in states as well as the problems for applicants for immigration and caseworkers attempting to assist families. For immigrants earning low income, their literacy and language barriers can… Continue Reading...

Post Feminism and Hip Hop

racism, a term coined by Martin Barker 1981, is a concept discussing the perceived threat of immigrants. The protagonist of the video is in the United Kingdom. Many Africans and Afro-Caribbean people, immigrate to the United Kingdom in search of a better life. This woman could be a product of that immigration and thus may encounter new racism behaviors from people disliking the 'invasion' of immigrants onto their land. While the video does not depict such negative beliefs, it does open the discussion up for this possibility. In conclusion, society has changed in many positive ways.

Muslim Americans and the Impact Of September 11th

Global Media Journal, 2(2): 7-24.] John F. Kennedy had described America as a "nation of immigrants" in the mid-20th century, yet events unfolded that propelled America away from this identity to police state wherein security and safety become more important than the idea espoused by Kennedy.[footnoteRef:4] Following 9/11 immigrants groups were targeted by legislators, policy makers, and pundits: rather than the heart and soul -- the foundation -- of America they became public enemy no. 1.

Feminist theory shows how systems like healthcare assert patriarchal authority over subordinates, especially women of color.

making and human resource practices. This is particularly true for the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, where immigrants comprise a significant portion of the population (French, 2010). Managers in such environments -- whether they oversee international operations or not -- must effectively manage cultural differences and extensively take advantage of the benefits diversity may bring. Creating such an inclusive and fair work atmosphere is crucial for motivating employees and getting the most out of them, thereby increasing job satisfaction and minimising turnover rates. Indeed, though difficult to quantify, diversity management has been shown to be an important driver of… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Immigration on Religious Beliefs

facilitating inter-ethnic marriage within the three most significant religious groups: Jews, Catholics and Protestants (Massey and Higgins). Not many immigrants arrive in America expecting to alter the religion they are affiliated to. Their focus is often achieving a respectable financial standing in the society and building a better life for themselves and their families (Chiswick). Effects on the Distribution of Religious Groups: Immigration, Religion and Economics In a pluralistic nation, religious communities may be viewed as markets for religious services and goods without the secular characteristics that come with a traditional economic market.

Kuwaiti Public and Private Sector Job Market

discovered in Kuwait in the 1930s, the country embarked on an initiative to employ labor immigrants in order to promote infrastructural and economic growth (De Bel-Air, 2013). As the country development process relied on oil, the employment of labor immigrants contributed to the influx of foreigners to the country who soon outnumbered Kuwaiti nationals by 1960. Most of the country's initial labor immigrants originated from Asia, Europe, and North America. However, these labor immigrants were hired as contract workers despite their role in the country's economic development during this period. While the country later embarked on initiatives to hire… Continue Reading...

Biculturalism and How to Create Multiple Identities

may be related to the dominant or white culture's fear of non-integration of existing or new immigrants and perceived threats to an imaginary cohesiveness of the dominant culture -- something that is ironic given the heterogeneous nature of the United States. Given that 69% of Muslim children in USA attend a public school, it is also important to understand how schools and educators are responding to issues related to multiculturalism versus assimilation and how educators can help children mitigate problems personally as well as promote a more educated and culturally aware society in general (Al-Romi, 2000). The main themes… Continue Reading...

The Impact Of Legislation on Violence

in the face of increased immigration (as Turkey's Erdogan threatens to unleash hundreds of thousands of more immigrants into Europe), the impact of stricter gun laws could be more damaging than positive, as the Czech Ministry has pointed out. Therefore, a study that focuses on how addressing cultural issues can help reduce the threat of violence in society may be one highly worth pursuing. Legalistic aims and solutions are only effective so long as a public and body of citizens respects the institutions and rule of law responsible for developing, implementing and overseeing them. Once this respect is lost,… Continue Reading...

all of this and the meeting, the issues at hand clearly address and involve immigrants even if this is not clearly stated all of the time. For sure, immigrants are quite often among the poorer and more vulnerable people in a population and thus making sure higher education works for them in terms of tuition assistance and proper administration that does not include fraud is a good thing across the board (Minnesota, 2017).

Moreover, only "13% of African-American Muslims express satisfaction with national conditions, compared with 29% of other native-born Muslims, and 45% of Muslim immigrants" (Pew Research Center, 2007, p. 6). The surveys indicate that for each successive generation of Muslims in America, that generation is less likely to be satisfied by American society -- and for African-American Muslims they experience a double-dissatisfaction both as African-Americans and as Muslims, which are two populations that fare poorly in America. 9/11… Continue Reading...

Instead of presuming that all illegal immigrants are threats to the integrity of the community, police officers would be better off focusing on their primary roles in preserving community safety. Focusing only on criminal behaviors is the best use of police resources, which is why I would support Javier's balanced and sensible approach. Officers like Javier have a tremendously important role to play in establishing positive relationships with the immigrant communities who… Continue Reading...

assumptions on which American eugenics rested were racism, bigotry, pseudo-science masquerading as science, the assumption that many immigrants and lower socio-economic level Americans could not be assimilated into U.S. society” (p. 183).  With the concept of America as a “shining city upon a hill” as the primary rationale in support, the mainstream psychological community was inspired by a “quasi-religious zeal to inflict eugenics on the people of the United States and, thereby, create a master race in America” (Lerner, 2006, p. 183). It should also be noted that a number of influential members of Western society during the first… Continue Reading...

the money” is straightforward enough and likely serves to explain the rationale behind most illegal immigrants taking their lives in their hands to reach the “city on the hill.” This type of analysis suggests that to the extent that economic conditions in other countries are improved will likely be the extent to which the flow of illegal immigrations to the United States will be slowed. The “follow the money” formula, however, does not provide a viable explanation for foreigners who want to come to the United States to harm its citizens such as the case with the 19 Middle… Continue Reading...

National Security Impact Of Immigration Policy

Globalization Is Not Americanization

United States lack sufficient market, cultural, or political power to participate in the globalization process. immigrants to the United States and Canada created an amalgamated society in which language, heritage, religion, race, and even gender were and continue to be sublimated in the interests of globalization. Globalization can only be considered Americanization if Americanization is defined as the state of cultural mingling. Yet what most people mean when they imply globalization equals Americanization is something nefarious, something hegemonic. The British empire, and the Ottomans, and the Mughals before them, also spread their own cultural, political, and economic hegemony throughout… Continue Reading...

Although the United States was always a settler nation, immigration trends changed in the early 20th century. immigrants from Southern Europe and Eastern Europe started to pour in before the First World War, pushed by economic uncertainties and outright poverty and pulled by the promise of readymade jobs in rapidly industrializing America (“Immigration in the Early 1900s” 1). American immigration policy favored these new immigrants to fill needed low-wage positions in industry. As Zolberg… Continue Reading...

more than a century, the Chinese Exclusion Act kept Chinese immigrants from moving to the United States and those that were in the United States, from gaining citizenship. “Chinese Exclusion Act stops immigration of Chinese for one decade and stops Chinese from being U.S. citizens.” (Soennichsen xiv) It took years for Chinese people and Chinese Americans to gain any kind of foothold within the United States.

A company based in a more international location (with a lot of immigrants for example) might be in a better position to expand into areas with wildly different norms and cultures, while a company in Bavaria might prefer to stick to countries closer to what it knows.

The increase in the number of immigrants in the nation do not just have an impact on the labour market aspects such as wage and employment but also fiscally impacts the economy in general. Nonetheless, it has proven to be difficult to fully conclude whether the increase in the number of immigrants is adversarial or constructive. The most ideal preceding evidence recommends that the general impacts of migration on employment and wages are either trivially different from zero, or considerably positive. The base of proof on the impacts of migration on employment in the nation,… Continue Reading...

As Mandel explains, immigrants from Islamic states created a sense of Uberfremdung, which can best be translated as “overforeignization” (2008). Mandel quotes writer Max Frisch who wrote, “We called for labor, but people came instead” (2008, p.51). This quote aptly describes the massive problem with Islamic-based immigration in Germany. immigrants of Islamic heritage had been arriving in Germany since the early 1960s, but Germans tended to think of them as “guest workers” rather than people who were becoming a part of the overall nation.… Continue Reading...

Whether Immigration Is a Problem or Not

the United States was founded by settlers and has been a nation of immigrants ever since, the discourse towards immigration policy has occasionally been hostile. The hostility towards immigration is a problem, but immigration itself is not at all a problem. In fact, immigration improves overall quality of life, builds a safer and more productive society, and builds both economic and cultural capital. One of the reasons why immigration is not a problem is that it improves the overall quality of life both domestically and throughout the world. When Americans favor policies that promote economic and social development, they… Continue Reading...

The Benefits and Costs of a Polarizing Problem Introduction As Suarez-Orozco, Rhodes and Milburn (2009) point out, immigrants need “supportive relationships” in order to succeed in the foreign country that they move to (p. 151). However, when that foreign country is determined to address immigration issues—not only illegal immigration but also legal immigration—it can become a difficult problem for both sides of the political aisle. For a nation like the United States, that is especially true. After all, America was founded by immigrants. The early Spanish and French missionaries came in the 16th century seeking converts to Christianity. The Puritans and… Continue Reading...

access are factors contributing to their relatively lower cancer service utilization. Certain studies reveal that Black immigrants continue to be marginalized when it comes to health promotion, on account of the ‘migration effect’ (new immigrants might lack adequate knowledge of health programs, contributing to their lower service utilization and access). Experiences of stereotyping, racism, cultural and linguistic obstacles (which include screening guidelines failing to be culturally relevant) apparently lead to late diagnoses among ethnic minority and Black populations. Moreover, studies reveal that cultural and religious factors intervene and impact health behaviors of patients, including the perceived advantage of undertaking… Continue Reading...

Reasoning Logic and How to Argue

I thought was ironic given that their family were immigrants too. The person also spoke about how the stock market was performing well and they supported Trump because of that, too.

When I did, I realized that it was possible to understand that from that person’s point of view, having immigrated using the standard means of paperwork processing made them believe that the “illegal” immigrants were somehow… Continue Reading...
