With Our New President Raising Such Issues... I See What These Men and Women Must Fight For

While teaching English as a Second Language for factory workers in a local town, there is definitely something that has made me think so much about all of the news stories that have arisen over the past six months or so with all of the border issues coming along with President Trump’s lack-luster systems and over-vocal procedures. There are so many immigrants who set goals for themselves simply to earn their way into the United States for the freedoms they would gain, as well as the rights that would be gained for the future generations for their families. I can sit and look at the response of one man when he can hardly understand a word out of my mouth when I try to ask where he came from, the name of his wife and if they have any children. There was some sort of emotion and almost heart-stopping fearful love that were a sort of confirmation that he was putting all of this work and effort into his work to help ensure that a quality life is kept for himself and his family.

It almost breaks into mockery the way that our current President, who happens to have reached so many of the “American Dreams” on his own, is fighting with incredible strength to push out millions of individuals who have put so much energy into gaining the dreams of their own. Historically, the American theory or goal was also based on the premise to expand the population, open to people around the world who were looking to gain the freedoms that would be so much warmer and more welcoming here on our land.

And now, seeing this in person there is much for me to realize about how I really feel about this situation and the intense level at which it has been taking over our news over the past six months or so. Upon learning that mothers, fathers, grandparents and other heads of their households have been forced out of the country only to leave behind their native orphan family members, there is something abusive about what is being done around the country.

In the same manner I think it is so wonderful to see employers such as these industrial plants that are investing in these immigrants and helping to work toward the growth of their goals and promotion within the workplace. While the impression of potential dirt within the American population, there is nothing better than to see the fact that many of these individuals have placed a great amount of their own effort into improvement, not into taking advantage of the American government in any way. It is wonderful to see what they have helped to do with many of our nation’s industries rather than the impression that our over-invasive president has presented to the public as to the feeling that immigrants have been working to take over the United States rather than integrate themselves into our culture. However, there are many reasons to see the wonderful people they are working to become and the future generations of hard workers and spirited individuals that they have brought here to us as well.

I know that I still have much to learn from this project that I have acquired, but I also hope to dig deeper into this issue that has affected so many families locally and nationally. There is no reason to kick someone out of a place they have made their home for many years!
