The Visitor reveals the complexities of immigration in America
Looking back at our American values after watching the movie, “The Visitor” and reading a couple articles, it has come across that some of these values can be hypocritical. We say something but, we don’t show it. To the other countries we are portraying that all immigrants are welcome and that they can get a better living down here in America. The poster in the detention center where Tarek was put in into you’ll see it said, “The strength of America is our immigrants.” First of all it’s very ironic that the poster would be in a detention center also, if immigrants are our strength then why we deport them so much. They are hardworking people who come here just to get a living or situations are bad and they need to get out. Tarek was one of those people who needed to get out because situations were bad in his country. Another example showing how we can be hypocrites in our values is this poem called “Give Us Your Tired and Your Poor”. The poem talks about giving us the people who are the outcast and poor so we can give them a better living. It’s funny because we say we want immigrants but what we do is send them back again because we can’t immigrants even though we were founded on immigrants. One of my parents friends were sent back after 10 years here in America. Their kids were put in a foster home and they were sent back. What, Is that even fair? They’ve been working here so they can make a living for their kids. But, that doesn’t matter to us. We just want to appear “accepting” to other countries. These situation prove to us how hypocritical our values are. Also how the complex immigration really is.
Imagine yourself as an immigrant in America. You’ve been here for about 20 years; you have kids that were born here. Your almost finish completing the process of getting a green card. Until one day you get arrested for no reason and get deported back to your country. Everything is lost can’t...
Should schools require students to wear school uniforms? This issue of whether or not students should wear uniforms is far from over. School uniform has proven to be an enormously complicated question since the fall of Berlin Wall. More interestingly, this debate often touches on the essential core principles rather than a serious theoretical research. Those who approbate and deprecate of school uniform generally bring up the following arguments. This has been an increasing concerned of both parents and students whether or not school uniforms should be invoke. Which in today’s society, students have become much more concerned with the clothes they wear and the interest to popularity. In spite of this controversial, older students generally object to the idea of wearing the uniform. That is to say it’s difficult whether school uniforms will soon be required in American public schools. Therefore, the school uniform policy should be required in public schools because it would lead to less violence, safer environment, to promote good discipline, encourage higher education, and lower cost to parents.
School violence is defined as any physical or verbal attack on a person while on school grounds or school property. Violence in schools destroys such an environment and can negatively affect student motivation for learning. Many health professionals have labeled violence in schools as a potential threat to the overall health and academic success of children....

–4– 1. (b) The Visitor
Holding the arm of his helper, the blind Piano tuner comes to our piano. He hesitates at first, but once he finds The keyboard, his hands glide over the slow Keys, ringing changes finer than the eye Can see. The dusty wires he touches, row On row, quiver like bowstrings as he Twists them one notch tighter. He runs his Finger along a wire, touches the dry Rust to his tongue, breaks into a pure bliss And tells us, “One year more of damp weather Would have done you in, but I’ve saved it this Time. Would one of you play now, please? I hear It better at a distance.” My wife plays Stardust1. The blind man stands and smiles in her Direction, then disappears into the blaze Of new October. Now the afternoon, The long afternoon that blurs in a haze Of music … Chopin nocturnes, Clair de Lune2, All the old familiar, unfamiliar Music-lesson pieces, Papa Haydn’s Dead and gone3, gently down the stream4 … Hours later, After the latest car has doused its beams, Has cooled down and stopped its ticking, I hear Our cat, with the grace of animals free To move in darkness, strike one key only, And a single lucid drop of water stars my dream.

...The fact of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is related in Luke 1:26-38. The Evangelist tells us that in the sixth month after the conception of St. John the Baptist by Elizabeth, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to the Virgin Mary, at Nazareth, a small town in the mountains of Galilee. Mary was of the house of David, and was espoused (i.e. married) to Joseph, of the same royal family. She had, however, not yet entered the household of her spouse, but was still in her mother's house, working, perhaps, over her dowry. (Bardenhewer, Maria Verk., 69). And the angel having taken the figure and the form of man, came into the house and said to her: "Hail, full of grace (to whom is given grace, favoured one), the Lord is with thee." Mary having heard the greeting words did not speak; she was troubled in spirit, since she knew not the angel, nor the cause of his coming, nor the meaning of the salutation. And the angel continued and said: "Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob forever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end." The Virgin understood that there was question of the coming Redeemer. But, why should she be elected from amongst women for the splendid dignity of being...

He went to the police station saying he escaped from a man’s house that had kidnapped him and he has been missing for a few years. He also mentions how he had no accesses to television or anything so he wasn’t sure how long he was missing for. He told the police “I found a broken window in the basement so I managed to sneak out and run as fast as I could”. The police than asked for that mans location. Jake than replied “I was running so fast I didn’t managed to get the man’s location”. He also says he’s from the states (even though he isn’t) and then he said to the police “I want to call my family unless they kept the same number” and how he will call them in the morning because the times are different over their the police than said” I think it’s better if you stay here over night so we can sort everything out in the morning” Jake really didn’t want to ring his actual parents.
