Honors assignment for chapter 6 immigration

  1. 1. Honors Assignment for Chapter 6This week you have learned about the arguments for/against immigration in thelate 1800s. Immigration reform is still a hot-button topic in the United States. Itwill only grow more heated as the 2012 election draws closer. You will find thatany time the country finds itself in a financial slump, we have sought out groupsto attach blame to. Lately, we have seen more anti-immigration efforts and adswhen it comes to Mexican and Hispanic immigration. Why is this? For thisassignment, you will research immigration reform efforts from either 2010 or2011 (I would suggest researching the Dream Act, the Dream Act of Illinois,…etc.).I want you to list a few of the reform efforts or bills that have been introduced orpassed to either curb immigration or encourage it by giving 2ndgenerationimmigrants a pathway to citizenship. Compare and contrast the reasons forwanting to curb immigration now in 2011 with the ideas for curbing it back in thelate 1800s. Remember, I do not want your personal opinion unless I specificallyask for it. In this case, I do not. Also, you cannot write that the immigrants are“taking our jobs” unless you are quoting a specific source. First, it is impossible tophysically come over here and take over a job. The job had to be given to themby the employer. Do not tell me that they will work for less so they get the jobs.Again, So who should the public really be mad at?
