California's Love/Hate of Immigrants.
Individuals around the world view California/the United States as the premiere place to raise a family, and to have a nice white house on the corner of some quiet street. They see California as the opportunity to work a 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. job in almost any field, something most of us take for granted. These are just a few of the things that drive immigrants to move to California. Whether it be people from Europe, Asia, Latin America, or even from within the United States, they all have one thing in common: they come in search of new opportunities, either work related or family, and/or a better living situation. California has always been a home for immigrants. Almost everyone living in the state today was an immigrant at some point. Although California as a state has always welcomed immigrants, the people living in California, who were also immigrants once themselves, tend to have a love and hate relationship towards immigrants. They love the immigrants for!.
the low class jobs that many of them occupy and do so well and they hate immigrants because most of them are very determined and with time and hard work they seem to take over many of our high paying jobs. So immigration is a huge topic of discussion in California. Should immigration be allowed to proceed? If it has for so long why should it stop now? These are just a few of the questions Californians deal with on a daily basis. Whether we love immigrants or can't stand them is a constant question, but only one thing is for sure: we have learned to live and work with them every day, and in turn we have learned how to treat other people better and more respectfully. .
Coming to California is one of the greatest things that have ever happened to me.
