United States Immigration Policy


            ´╗┐Because I agree with immigration policies, I negate the resolution, which states resolved: the United States immigration policy is inconsistent with American ideals. The United States was built on the basis of several ideals: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The sanctity of life is a universal value that is agreed upon by all human beings. The United States government should not provide undocumented immigrants living in the United States a path to citizenship because they essentially crossed the border in an unlawful manner and breaking the law should not be rewarded. The government spends about eighteen billion dollars a year to protect the borders of the nation yet individual still attempt to break the law and succeed. If these immigrants are lawless even before entering a country, what strides must the government take in order to prevent further criminal activity? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a crime is defined as an act or the commission of an act that is forbidden or the omission of a duty that is commanded by a public law and that makes the offender liable to punishment by that law. .
             In 1921, President Harding signed the Quota Act, which put in place immigration quotas. A quota is the maximum amount permitted. Only three percent of the immigrant population of each country living in the United States was allowed to enter the country each year. The number of immigrants living in the nation is considerable and is continuously increasing. Quotas had to be established in order to regulate the amount of immigrants in the country. .
             In the late 1920's, the fear of communism was present. Americans feared that communism would spread from Russia and Eastern Europe to the United States. Americans had hostile feelings towards immigrants because jobs and houses were more to difficult to find. During this time America became a "melting pot" as styled by Woodrow Wilson.
