In Ivy Leaguers Want Their Campuses to be ‘Sanctuaries’ From Trump Deportations, it discusses the movement of Ivy League schools wanting to have their campuses be sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants because of President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign to deport undocumented immigrants. Students, faculty, and alumni have all signed a letter stating what would like to happen for them and their families on campus. I chose to focus on this issue because with Trump becoming the new leader of our nation, he’s set how he wants to handle immigrant laws and deportation of undocumented immigrants. I have friends whose families are immigrants and have expressed their fear for their future of staying in America. I have also seen... View More »

Universities are looking into hiring, which is stated in their petition letters, a dean and assistant dean of equity, diversity and inclusion. Also they want to create a resource center for students without documentation and establish a budget for helping those students. Lastly, they want to hire a mental health professional who specializes in helping people facing immigration and deportation matters and making an on-campus church a sanctuary. People that can help contribute to these ideas the university wants to do would be the people of the community or town the university is in and surrounding towns. On a bigger scale, maybe the mayor of the city could be a part of this change.

The factors that contributed to this issue being discussed is that the new president of our nation, Donald Trump, has proposed that he will deport all undocumented immigrants. It’s a pretty drastic move on the president-elect’s part because it’s not something the president would do. This is more of a move a dictator would do. He’s not showing that he’s for representing ALL the people of the United States, just a certain group of people. This scares many people living here, which has caused many protests around the country, as mentioned in the article.

In this article, the issue discussed is a social issue and can affect our society, as mentioned before. Looking at the sociological perspective, conflict theory, it emphasizes social inequality, which is very evident in this article. Rules are being applied unequally and basically punish a certain group of people. They haven’t done anything ...

    Immigrant Workers In Canadian History

    3412 words, 14 pages

    THE CANADIAN HISTORY OF IMMIGRATNT WORKERS Canadian labour history is tainted by hatred, discrimination and fear of immigrant workers and immigration. This stems in part from Government sponsored racism and the capitalistic use of immigration as a means to defy the labour movement. We can start with the stereotyping and discrimination of the Irish in the 1840’s, our first large scale exploitable labour pool and move right through to today’s racial profiling and cultural unacceptance of Arabs and east Indians. Through our history the acceptance of immigrants gradually improve but even today

    In a little district west of Washington Square the streets have run crazy and broken themselves into small strips called "places." These "places" make strange angles and curves. One Street crosses itself a time or two. An artist once discovered a valuable possibility in this street. Suppose a collector with a bill for paints, paper and canvas should, in traversing this route, suddenly meet himself coming back, without a cent having been paid on account! So, to quaint old Greenwich Village the art people soon came prowling, hunting for north windows and eighteenth-century gables and Dutch at

    Economists have claimed that illegal immigration benefits our economy not only by their pre sales tax purchases but because some illegal immigrants have obtained fake documents to obtain employment (Silverstein, 1993). These documents include false Social Security numbers and individual tax payer identification numbers (Preston, 2006). And although honorable in their desire to pay taxes and contribute to the country for which they are illegally residing, some illegal immigrants are eligible for a tax refund because of their low-paying occupations (Preston, 2006). Not only does this further ani

    An Analysis of Who is Irish? by Carol Belanger In the United States, there are many immigrants from different countries and nationalities. It is probably the most ethnically diverse country in the world. Some people view it as a “melting pot” where a variety of cultures mix together and influence the overall culture. Others use the analogy of a quilt, woven by cloths from different colors and fabrics that comes out a whole piece. Despite this, gaps between different cultures still exist, especially for older immigrants, no matter how well they have assimilated. The cultural and lif
