Immigration! There are many debates of who were the first Americans. Many believe they migrated from Polynesia, South Asia, and/or Europe. They came in need of unlimited resources that they thought this country were able to supply. That’s what many Asians and Europeans came for, though Africans were on the opposite end. They were brought against their will to do labor for Americans, so it could build up their nation. That was also true about the Caribbean’s.
Immigrants had chosen America for several reasons. Such as: to live in freedom, escape poverty or oppression, practice their religion freely, and to make better lives for themselves and their children. Also, they’ve come for better job opportunities. By them getting jobs they have contributed to the economy of the country, and been an increasingly essential of the workforce.
President’s Policy on Immigration
The President has addressed the issue of immigration on America, though he feels like that pressure needs to come off the border. He wants to find a better way to allow immigrants to come legally to the US and support our economy. Though his Congress has been progressing in strengthening border security, enforcing our worksite laws, keeping our economy well-supplied with needed workers, and helping new Americans integrate into our society.
