The U.S immigration having a historical perspective policy is in two different epochs and in two different administrations. In year 1986, the IRCA (the immigration Reform and Control Act was achieved by Congress this was under Ronald Reagan’s Administration, Ronald the 40th president of the United States and revitalizing the Republican Party. This law streamed the immigration policy focusing on the forgiveness and enforcement. This law had a lot of duties and requirements, employees had to attest to their employee’s immigration status, this made it illegal to hire or recruit immigrants who lack documentation which allowed them to work in the U.S. Immigrants that wanted to station in the United States before January 1, 1982 had reside there continuously. Amnesty was a certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants. However, policy came in role in this Immigration Policy was under the loop of Congress in 2007. George W. Bush Administration having the strongest support, Congress argued the Secure Border and Economic Opportunity and Immigration Reform Act of 2007. In 2006 the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act, Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act, Security Through Regularized Immigration and Vibrant Economy Act of 2007 where all compromised based on failed immigration reform bills. The Secure Border, Economoic Opportunity and Immigration Reform Act of 2007 fouced on a strong enforcement while in the creation of this “Z visa”, this would have been granted to those people that were living with legal statues. This documented required an undocumented immigrant to be in his/her home country and they apply for their green card. Unfortunely, this law ended family reunification and it a benefit that can allow a U.S citizen or a Lawful Permanent Resident to bring there family for example, there husband or wife, children and parents and live in the United States legally.

The study of the mind and behavior is the core or basic concept to the school of psychology. An individual’s mind and how it functions has spawn over a several dozen of theories, schools of thought and scientific methodologies on how to shape or predict human behavior. The most curious of them all is the aspect of normal and abnormal psychology. What exactly is normal and abnormal psychology? What constitutes and defines what should be deemed a health mind versus an unhealthy one is the difference between normal and abnormal psychology.
Brief History of Abnormal Psychology
Hippocrates of Cos (ca. 460–377 BC), a Greek physician who lived on an island called Cos, off the coast of present day Turkey has been referred to as the “Father of rational medicine.” Hippocrates ushered in a new practice of treatment which was based on physical causes; which were opposite of the norm of the times where illness was attributed to supernatural beliefs and religion. Hippocrates helped in redirecting the focus on mental illness as one the stemmed from chemical imbalances in the brain rather than animistic forces.
Another earlier thought of abnormal psychology was the disorder known as hysteria. This was considered among the Greeks as a disease suffered primarily by women, and it was believed that its symptoms traveled around the body causing “hysteria”...
I am a supporter for immigration and I believe that the United States was founded on diversity and hard work, which is why I am choosing to research and write about immigration reform. Currently, there are over 11.8 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. As recently stated by the U.S. President and the Senate, the key issue facing the reform is the enforcing of strict laws and penalties at our nation’s borders and will be contingent on the advancement of the reform. Agricultural workers and minors eligible for the DREAM Act, (the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act), will be granted protected status first. Therefore, certain measures will be put forth in order to grant legal status to those who qualify. Along with harsher border security, a five year plan will be set forth for all employers to implicate an electronic verification system for all of their employees and be penalized for hiring undocumented workers. After an undocumented immigrant becomes a citizen, they will be eligible to apply for their immediate family members, as long as they meet the requirements, thus keeping families together.

Immigration is a topic that has been argued many times in the United States. Many people support it while others believe that immigrants are criminals who commit the crime of entering the U.S. illegally. Roberto Rodriguez and Star Parker both use different styles of writing in “Border on our Backs” and “Se Habla Entitlement” respectively. Although Roberto Rodriguez uses a personal approach to convey his message, Star Parker’s method of using real life facts and details to support her opinion really pulls through and is therefore more convincing.
Roberto Rodriguez tries to use emotion to motivate and capture the reader’s attention to support his feelings for immigration but fails to back up any of his arguments with valid evidence. In “The Border on Our Backs” Rodriguez contends “We deny the nopal no longer. We know full well we’re not on foreign soil, but on Indian lands…..If anything we are back”(Rodriguez 560). Rodriguez states that Mexicans have always lived in America. This however is not true; the real occupants of the American land were the Native Americans and the Mayans and Incans before them. He makes this bold statement yet provides no solid evidence to prove that the Immigrants are in fact on their land and not on foreign land. This is very personal and makes it difficult for the reader to believe him without any evidence.
It is very clear that the author of “Border on Our Backs”...

Illegal immigration, a fervently debated issue in the United States, is defined as the migration of people across national borders, or the residence of foreign nationals in a country, in a way that is illegal according to the immigration laws of the destination country. Because the United States is such an attractive country, for it provides opportunity and prosperity, many people who live in less fortunate countries legally and illegally migrate to the United States. Illegal immigration causes a great ordeal, because many politicians and economists argue that illegal immigrants are an economic burden to the United States. On the other hand, some economists claim that illegal immigrants do not actually hurt the economy but they help it.
In the article “Illegal Aliens a Drain on U.S. Taxpayers, Report Says” Writer R. Cort Kirkwood argues that Illegal aliens are largely poor, uneducated and drain the welfare and public education systems, which causes a burden on the economy. Because most immigrants don’t have papers to work, they have to take jobs, which pay less then minimum wage causing them to live in poverty. Kirkwood writes,
“’according to the CIS (Center for Immigration Studies) …Illegals live in poverty at high rates because they earn much less money compared to Americans. The average household income for illegals is...
...Why be bothered by immigrants?
Immigration is a heated and contemporary subject in America, both in the White House and among the Americans. Currently, 11 million immigrants have their home in the shadows in America trying hard not to get caught by authorities and deported back to their native land sometimes leaving their family behind. The problem is dividing the country, and the Arizona state has taken it as far as to creating a set of immigration laws applying within the state borders. There is no doubt, immigration changes a country, but is it for the better or the worse? Is it necessary to be bothered by immigrants?
The pros and cons on the immigration subject are many, especially for the States where only 0.16 % of the population consists of Native Americans1 leaving the remaining 99.84 % to be immigrants or descendants of those who immigrated earlier. America has a long history of immigration dating all the way back to the Vikings and the Italian born explorer Christopher Columbus in 1492. This has made America what it is today, a country with a population reaching 316 millions and in addition to that the 11 million undocumented immigrants. It is a country with great diversity regarding race, ethnicity, religion, culture etc. The consequences are numerous, and they come both with positive and negative perspectives.
One of the major advantages is the innovation of the...
...Historical Foundation of Inclusive Education
Based on the book of Teresita G. Inciong, Yolanda S. Quijano, Yolanda T. Capulong, Julieta A. Gregorio, and Adelaida C. Jines entitled Introduction To Special Education, it was during the year of 1902 and under the American regime that the Filipino children with disabilities were given the chance to be educated. Mr. Fred Atkinson, General Superintendent of Education, proposed to the Secretary of Public Instruction that the children whom he found deaf and blind should be enrolled in school like any other ordinary children. However, the country’s special education program formally started on 1907. Mr. David Barrows, Director of Public Education, and Miss Delight Rice, an American educator, worked hard for this program to be possible. Mr. Barrows worked for the establishment of the Insular School for the Deaf and Blind in Manila and Miss Rice was the administrator and at the same time the teacher of that school. Today, the school for the Deaf is located at Harrison Street, Pasay City and the Philippine National School for the Blind is adjacent to it on Polo Road.
During the year 1926, the Philippine Association for the Deaf (PAD) was composed of hearing impaired members and special education specialists. The following year (1927), the Welfareville Children’s Village in Mandaluyong, Rizal was established. In 1936, Mrs. Maria Villa Francisco was appointed as the first Filipino principal of the School for the Deaf...
Historical and Scientific Perspective on Homosexuality
In this paper I will be talking about the historical and scientific perspective on homosexuality. This paper I will discuss three different perspectives on the subject them being the biological, historical and psychological perspective on homosexuality. Another thing that I will go over is the impact that all these perspective may have on how homosexuals look and feel about themselves. Looking at and analyzing the experience of a homosexual coming out as gay and being able to adjust to their new life. And last, how the biological, historical and psychological perspectives have impacted my sexual orientation and how its made me look at homosexuality.
Historicalperspectives of Homosexuality, whether it's gay or lesbian has existed all throughout time. There has been a lot of different views and attitudes toward homosexuality that also included tolerances in some societies with open acceptance. But then in most other societies this type of lifestyle has had strong disapproval of. While homosexuality has mostly been condemned, this wasn’t always the case. There are a few examples that I can give, one being ancient Greece and Rome. In Greece it was actually common for established males to have...
Historical and Scientific Perspectives on Homosexuality
Historical and Scientific Perspectives on Homosexuality
Is homosexuality a choice or genetic? Homosexuality is becoming more and more common all over the world. There are many different perspectives and theories regarding homosexuality. There are historical, culture, species, scientific, and psychologicalperspectives on being a homosexual person but which is true and which is simply a theory.
Historically being a gay man or a lesbian was a sin. According to the reading sodomy is a sin and was most likely the reason why Sodom was destroyed all those years ago. Historically any release of sperm not meant for procreation is a sin. However, in ancient Greece it was common for established men to form sexual relationships with young men about the age of growing a beard. There are pictures on vases that depict a man inserting his penis between a boy’s legs but not in the anus. I think that given the historical views of homosexual behaviors it makes some people think that it is still wrong and should still be hidden from people. It also depends on how a person was raised in my opinion. If a person was raised to believe that it is a sin to enter into homosexual relationships then they will try to hide it from everyone for as long as...
