In recent years, immigration seems becoming a global controversial issue. People in the State even consider it as one of the most important national issue which may affect the future development of America. Many immigrants move to another country to look for better lives, job opportunities and education. They indeed have the potential power to affect the host country. Some people may think that immigration is more damaging to a host country. However, I believe the advantages brought by immigrants outweigh the disadvantages. Immigration is helpful to a country in the aspect of economic development. Moreover, immigrants play a significant role to add cultural richness to a society.
To begin with, immigration is one of the important aspects of boosting a country’s economy. Most of the immigrants would like to start a new business in the new place. According to the Small Business Administration, “immigrants are 30 percent more likely to start a business in the United States than non-immigrants” (Furman). New business definitely creates more job opportunities for people. Moreover, since there are immigrants, it boosts the demand for local consumer goods. In my home country, Hong Kong, most of the immigrants are from Mainland China. Since they are high income individuals and family, they tend to have high purchasing power. As a result, their spending increases the demand for consumer goods and bloom the economy market. Therefore, immigration is helpful in flourishing business and economy. Another contribution from immigrants is that they take part in increasing cultural diversity. Immigrations have affected the country’s culture in several different ways such as education. Take Albert Einstein as an example, he immigrated to the U.S. in 1933. He was a world well-known physicist whom discovered “Theory of Relativity”. It is definitely one of the most significant educational contributions that are done by an immigrant. This leads to a fact that more and more...
...Does globalization helpcountries?
With a long history, globalization has affected human beings deeply. No one knows clearly about when globalization took place. Nowadays, globalization is a tending in modern society; human being can not ignore the phenomena. It can be believed that advanced transportation is the direct cause of globalization. globalization is not only a narrow meaning of economy or transportation. What is more, it means much more changes and options in international society. As time goes by, people start to consider about does globalization helpcountries? The answer is yes. We cannot ignore the fact that globalization brings us better living standard and varieties of choices on many aspects. There are three main affects how globalization correctly influence countries main trough economic, comunication, culture.
The first thing is that the economics of globalization supply the development countries broader economic space; they can use their own advantages and economic strength to make a bigger market for them. For example, the importance of international flows of trade, investment, and technology to the US economy has dramatically increased during the past two decade from relatively low levels. In the article “The effect of economic globalization to the economy of development countries”, Wang (2009) writes,...
...college is beneficial, and most do not have a clue as to what they are attending for. Many people do not have the urge to attend college because of the unknown competencies that can help make college students experience more beneficial and not a waste of time.
With the fall in the economy, college students have had an issue with the high expenses of attending schools such as higher rates of college tuition and purchasing expensive school books. Not all students have the luxury of affording these expenses, so most work and go to school at the same time. Rebecca Mead, author of “Learning by degrees," states a quote from Professor Richard K. Vedder, professor at the University of Illinois, “Some of them could have bought a house for what they spent on their education” (829). Here, Vedder explains the high rising costs of education and compared the cumulative price of college to the price of a house. The essential courses needed to obtain a degree are priced from an estimated 40-200 dollars a unit; that does not include housing, transportation, meals and school supplies. People might look at these rates and will want to back out on college altogether, but most students are not informed about the many ways to receive financial assistance for school, and do not have the knowledge how to go about applying for help. Financial aid is offered to those who meet the income qualifications; with the money received, most if not all...
...HOW TO HELP OUR COUNTRY
By Ramon J. Farolan

Sunday, 31 July 2005
There’s a booklet making the rounds in Metro Manila, that every Filipino who loves his country should get hold of and read, and hopefully put the points it raises into practice, in order to help our nation. It doesn’t dwell on a shift to a parliamentary form of government or a federal system, which are politicians are so fond of talking about as the answer tour problems, or as a way of providing a graceful exit for someone. It doesn’t dwell on the need for an expanded value-added tax, which are financial geniuses have been proposing as the answer to our fiscal deficits.
“TWELVE (12) LITTLE THINGS EVERY FILIPINO CAN DO TO HELP OUR COUNTRY,” by Alexander Ledesma Lacson, may be a “voice in the wilderness”; but as Fr. Rueben Tanseco, S.J. what Alex proposes are “very concrete, practical and doable” actions for us ordinary Filipinos. And the best part is that these 12 things don’t need to be debated upon by our congressmen and senators, reviewed by a bicameral conference committee and finally signed by the President before they can be part of the laws of the land, which may or may not be complied with because our Supreme Court can “TRO” the whole thing; and it may take time to resolve the issue, which then would still be the subject of a possible motion for reconsideration....
Australia, to many, is known as a "classical country of immigration." All but about 300,000 of the approximate 20,305,486 in Australia descended from immigrants who originally arrived with a settlement of British convicts in 1788. In July of 2001 Australia's population consisted of approximately 92% Caucasian, 7% Asian, and only 1% Aborigine.(native Australian). Australia has an estimated net gain of one international migrant every 4 minutes and 9 seconds. As of September of 1999 there was an approximated total of 53,143 illegal immigrants, over staying their welcome. After World War II, an immigration program was introduced with an aim of bringing mainly British immigrants to Australia. The majority of immigrants however, wound up coming from Eastern and Northern Europe, and then Southern Europe in the 1950's and 60's. Once into the 1970's Australia began to see an all new wave of immigrants taking a stand in their new grounds. This new group, still the predominant immigrants to the country of today, made their journeys from the Middle East, Latin America and Asia (where over half of today's immigrants to Australia come from). The high numbers of migrants into Australia has helped in more ways than it's hurt. There has been a higher number of people coming into the country with a high skill level than low skill level. This has produced a higher working rate and helped the economy a...
...Immigration affects citizens who live in the United States as well as immigrants who come to the United States. There are positive and negative affects of immigration. One negative result is that many immigrants take away jobs from native workers. Nevertheless, many Americans benefit from that because Americans perform jobs that are very difficult and low-paying. Immigration also affects refugees who come to the United States because they can not get the job they want. However, one positive outcome is that many immigrants gradually acquire good and payable jobs.
Native workers without a high school education have seen their wages fall because of competition by the lower-skilled new immigrants. According to one of the researcher, Moore Sullivan, studies show that for each immigrant who entered the United States (between 1960-1977), 0.93 natives were unemployed. In addition, most immigrants and Americans who did not complete their high school education are likely to work in specific areas of the economy such as "manufacturing and "service industries." Moreover, migration in to California affected the earnings of less educated natives in 1970. For example, many African and Hispanic Americans who dropped out of school, made salary of only $45 to $76 a week, because of immigration. All these statistics show that immigration has more negative impact on minorities than on White Americans. Thus, because of...

High immigrant areas are not the only places being effected by the ever enlarging annual intake of both legal and illegal immigrants; the workplace is already harsh for the working poor in America as it is. The facts of the working poor life style are hard enough to understand but don’t compare to immigrant workers life style. This essay will discuss the financial and physical effects on the working poor and immigrants, and why immigration is doing more harm than good for our economy. I will put together a practical solution and express my feelings on the matters.
The educated article by Steven Camarota, “Doesimmigration harm the poor?”, has multiple statistical points over immigration that come from a sturdy research council called the NRC. Each year the United States admits between 700k and 900k legal immigrants; additionally, the Immigration and Naturalization Service estimates that 5 million illegal aliens now live in the country with 400k new illegal aliens settling annually (Camarota 1). Those numbers are relatively small compared to the overall population of the country but they still have a big effect. Six states—California, New York, Texas, Florida, New Jersey, and Illinois—which have only 38 percent of the nation's total population, account for three-fourths of the immigrant...
...Immigration: Liberty and Justice for All
There are many social problems making up our criminal justice system. The significant problem I chose to emphasize on is illegal immigration. Immigration is a major social problem in the criminal justice system because the laws or regulations are always changing, and some people are just not willing to accept change. As with anything, illegal immigrationdoes have its consequences and does not always impact society in a positive manner, but in general, immigration is very important to the economy and diversity of the United States. Immigration has been responsible for religious changes, cultural change and population growth throughout the history of the United States. The political, economic, and social aspects of immigration have created much controversy in regards to religion, ethnicity, job growth, economic benefits, poverty, crime, moral values, and work habits.
Immigration is a highly debated and significant issue in our criminal justice system today. Immigration has several outcomes both good and bad. New immigrants bring our country diversity and introduce new customs, beliefs, and ways of life. Immigration also causes problems for some in our society who feel as if they are taking away jobs, criminally active and overall negatively...
My great-grandfather told me once, “When I was still young, in my peak years of 20s, everything I needed to go to the America is to know how to read.” He did know how to read very well, but he was a wealthy young man and had no reasons to leave the Ukraine. At that time, like today, the biggest two reasons people are migrating to the United States is because of the poor standard of living and religious pressure of the government. Unfortunately, in most cases; religion was just another excuse to come to this great country. The United States is based on immigrants and those people influence a great deal on the economy and development of the country itself.
Most people don't know the percentage of legal and illegal immigrants. The number is always changing, but it is larger than ever before. The higher standard of living in the USA is what drives many immigrants, yet, this country is the best. We always see on television illegal immigrants who are trying to cross the boarders between United States and Mexico. The US does send some illegal people back. However, this country benefits from illegal immigrant because businesses pay them the lowest wages that American citizens would not work for.
At the end of the year, the taxes we usually...
