America is a country where many people live. All of us have the rights to say or do whatever we want. But then it comes to a time were, half of us stay quiet because they’re afraid. Why? The horror of Immigration/Deportation. Children, teenagers, adults coming to this other side of the country are the hardest decision ever but, why do they hide when it comes to speeches? Because they’re too scared that someone would judge them and this is not fair at all.
St. Augustine is right when he says “an unjust law is no law at all”. Everyone should be heard; no one should be ignored on how they feel towards a law/s that isn’t unfair. Everyone has the right to speak, right? But, why does everyone hide when it comes to an important discussion? Because they’re scared to speak their mind out. Half of us, humans, think that if we talk for ourselves, we can be judge but that is wrong! Me, you, him, her, anyone deserves to speak, shout or whatever they want in order to get respect from everyone.
Immigration is what carves the picture of the modern world. Traveling from one place to another is a mission for any person. But, why do people travel to places illegally? To get a better life for themselves and their family. Almost 60 million people, more than one fifth of the total population of the United States, are immigrants or the children of immigrants. For most of this community, immigration policy is not an abstract but a means of family reunification and an affirmation that they are part of the “American dream.” Immigration to North America began with Spanish settlers in the 16th century and French and English settlers in the 17th century. In the century before the American Revolution, there was a major wave of free and indentured labor from England and other parts of Europe as well as large scale importation of slaves from Africa and the Caribbean.

Persuasive Essay on Immigration to Canada
Immigration is when one leaves their country of origin and move to another. The topic if immigration has always been a very delicate subject. This is due to the many problems immigrants have had to face in their new country. Today issues dealing with immigration are not as bad as they were many years ago. Immigration in Canada was not as popular then as it is now. During the 1900s-1918 not all migrants were treated with the same respect and acceptance as others. Immigrant and potential immigrants had to face many hardships. Firstly, during the 1900’s-1918 the population in Canada was low; and the government started campaigning for people to come to Canada however there was much “red tape” as to who could and couldn’t come. Secondly, those who immigrated to Canada were unsuccessful as there was a big regional difference. Lastly, the Aboriginals also known as first nation’s people were not treated well. The Aboriginals rights were not kept, and they where thought of as bad people who did not matter. In the nineteen hundreds immigration to Canada was problematic.
People migrate to a country because of its many pull factors. However a country like Canada in the 1900’s had as many push factors as it does pull factor. In the 1900’s Canada was not...

IRISH IMMIGRATION IN 1850’S 2
Irish Immigration in 1850’s
The line of ancestry that I came from is the Irish and English and Dutch. I am not certain about the dates, but I am pretty sure that they emigrated around the years 1850 to 1870. The Irish left the island of Ireland because of the potato famine that overtook their country. Even though undefined, Irish emigrants faced persecution from other foreigners because they were under educated and some were Irish Catholics, and also from little knowledge of what industrialization was.
The greatest number of emigrants was from around 1850 through the late 1870’s. The Irish had learned to farm potatoes, because of the productivity and market prices. Towards the end of...
...Immigration is the movement of people from other countries that come into another country of especially which they are not a native in order to settle there. Immigration is made for diverse of reasons. The most important of these are escape from poverty, economic, social, political reasons, natural sisaster, unimployment and live in clover. Other causes are retirement migration from rich countries to lower-cost countries with better climate is a new style of international immigration. For example British citizens would rather to immigrate to Spain or İtaly or retired Canadian citizens to the US. While for some migrants education is the primary reason, some migrants has personal reasons, relationship between family or a partner or marriage. As can be seen there are many reasons to migrate and in more detailed examined we can see more reasons.
Over the past quarter century the number of international migrants has doubled to more than 200m this trend is set to increase. (See Ian Goldin, Geoffrey Cameron and Meera Balarajan in book, “Exceptional People”) If rich countries were to admit enough migrants from poor countries to expand their own labour forces by a mere 3%, the world would be richer, according to one estimate, by $356 billion a year. (2) For instance if implemented within a well thought out policy, migration can be the most effective tool yet devised for reducing global poverty.

Social responsibility is an ideal topic for debate; there have been mixed results for companies and individuals who have pursued social responsibility. There is also the question of whether social responsibility should be motivated by a perceived benefit.This type of essay is based on philosophical theories on the necessity of social responsibility backed up with facts about previous social responsibility efforts. For example, anessay could be about how giving support to disaster victims can significantly boost an entity's professional image.
Social responsibility is a broad field of study; there are numerous factors to analyze in determining which mix of factors will have the highest chance of a successful social responsibility effort. For example, an author can look into the different types of philanthropy that address a social injustice, including: giving monetary gifts, hosting social awareness events and starting a sub-organization which addresses the issue at hand. Each type of social effort may have varying levels of effectiveness depending on the people's acceptance and the complexity of the issue itself.

Sei Shonagon: Hateful Things
Essay question: Consider Sei Shonagon’s definition of the word ‘hate’ in the Heian era. Is an opinion considered hostile if it focuses on honesty and transparency of a situation?
“Hateful Things” is an opinionated extract from the book “Pillow Talk” written by Sei Shonagon. Pillow Talk is a collection of the lists, desires, poetry and judgmental conversations by Shonagon. Sei Shonagon is a Japanese female novelist born in Heian era, who is famous for her articulation of the annoyances, she witnesses on a daily basis. Her wide range of dislikes focuses on different themes, in particular simulation of situations with comedic value with attention to a leading undertone.
The extract “Hateful Things” may be considered a personal essay. Regardless of the content of the extract being labeled as mostly hateful, the description of the scenarios leaves an intimate connection to the reader. Sei details her pet peeves in such a way that it paints an imaginary portrait in the audience’s mind. The essay has no real flow but rather a consistent list of demeaning situations by the voice of Sei. Even with this unique way of writing, the reader realizes the intimacy the persona has with the taste of hatred.
In this essay, I plan to analyze the root of the author’s hate and argue about the perception of a...
