cultural diversity and it has led to many wonderful things. Intelligent and artistic people of all religious and cultural backgrounds bring their trades together to create and develop the best of technologies. Yet, there are many anti-immigrant views floating around.Some Americans believe we should have a closed border or a reform on our current policy. America may have lured illegal immigrants into the country with our economic boom a few decades ago, but since our economy has declined, immigrants keep coming in. With the immigrants coming into the country during our current economic crisis, they may be making our problem even worse. The Federation for American Immigration Reform argues their

Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 provided amnesty to 2.7 Million illegal immigrants already in the United States and established sanctions for employers who knowingly hired them. This has not stopped the immigrants from coming, earning, and making a homestead here. Additional laws were passed in the 1990s to help curb the growing number of illegal immigrants, but they were largely ineffective. Another bill was introduced in 2007 by President George W. Bush, but ultimately it failed; it would have provided legal status to approximately 12 million illegal immigrants, and was a progressive move in the right direction for the people. So, this issue is long since a new issue for our

status. tracking foreigners on temporary visas to assure they leave when required, and strengthening enforcement capabilities both on the border and in the interior of the country including the provision of more detention space for aliens pending deportation, and developing additional cooperative federal-local immigration enforcement programs. These are the few potential approaches that the more conservative side takes (Federation for American Immigration Reform). At present, governments of different nations approach the consequences of illegal immigration quizzically and the United States recently has tried to uprise DACA and thereby amnesty. Despite that, United States laws mainly executed by

illegal immigrants. To control the illegal aliens Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act in 1986. This act punished employers who hired undocumented immigrants. It also granted citizenship to illegal aliens who had been residing in the United States for several years. No one really knows how many illegal immigrants there are living in the United States, but estimates say there are about four to five million illegals leaving here, almost all of them are non-white. In response to the illegal alien situation the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service launched missions such as Operation Blockade and Operation Gatekeeper in order to help secure the Mexican border. The INS tryied to block frequent entry points and put more officers across the border. This mission was unable to stem illegal immigration but instead led to rising human right abuseslike robbery, rape and even killing.

Poor immigration reform creates a culture of the over criminalization of immigration in the United States. The over criminalization of immigration plays a role in the which immigration laws get passed and which do not. Since immigration is over criminalized and seen almost as a threat the legislature reflects that. In turn immigration becomes even more criminalized. Laws were created in certain states

There maybe many details of the law to be discussed, but in general, the belief is that those who actually devote themselves to the country should be rewarded.

State of the Union Rhetorical Analysis
On Tuesday, January 30, President Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address. A large portion of his speech was devoted to the controversial topic of immigration reform. Trump’s purpose is to create an argument that gets the attention of congress to support his fight in taking control of immigration in America. He creates a fearful tone in order to convey to Americans that the immigration problem has become unacceptable and needs to be handled in the ways he believes are right. A careful analysis of his remarks reveals that he uses emotional appeals, anaphora, and cause and effect to convey his message

who have succeeded.
According to my beliefs, when an immigrant who is trying to obtain citizenship but fails, tries
over again. We do have a problem with illegal immigrants who have tried to cross the border
to achieve the American dream. For example, many would say vendors who sell snacks to
people in poor poverty areas are illegal. I view it as individuals who want to make money to
provide for themselves and even for their families. Whether your illegal in the United States
or trying to obtain citizenship, I believe everyone should have a fair chance to earn
citizenship in the United States.
In conclusion, the immigration reform is taking place today. I will stand by

There are many reasons that immigrants would want to come to America even if that
means doing it illegally. Even though they are coming for a better life, they are not thinking of
the negative impacts it is having on the people who live here. Crime rate, cost, and education are
huge factors that are negatively impacted because of illegal immigrants we have in the US.

campaign was his stance against illegal immigration and the deportation of illegal immigrants.

with the problem. Amnesty has been used in the past. The United States passed the Immigration Reform Control Act in 1986 which granted amnesty to over 2.25 million illegal immigrants employed in the U.S., along with employer sanctions and better border enforcement.(Djajic, Slobodan P. 605) Since they were employed, policy-makers at the time felt that they should at least make them citizens so that they can pay taxes on their income. But it does seem to send a contradictory message when at the same time you make laws that punish employers for hiring the illegal immigrants that you just gave amnesty to. But employer sanctions can also be a powerful tool in fighting illegal immigration.(Hanson

, since the terrorists' attacks on September 11, 2001, the U.S. Government has been getting even tougher in enforcing immigration laws and monitoring the arrival and departure of aliens into the U.S. As part of that effort, the INS announced that, effective January 1, 2003, the INS will "require all commercial carriers to submit detailed passenger manifests to the agency [INS] electronically, before any aircraft or vessel arrives in or departs from the United States". This program of monitoring entries and departures from the U.S. is part of the Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002.

citizenship to children of people who had entered the country illegally.Some conservatives in Congress, and some advocacy groups seeking to crack down on unlawful immigration, say the amendment is being misapplied, that it was never intended to grant citizenship automatically to babies of illegal immigrants. They argue that federal legislation, rather than a difficult-to-achieve constitutional amendment, would end birthright citizenship (Crary). The Citizenship Reform Act of 2005 was introduced by Rep. Nathan Deal. The purpose of this Act is to deny automatic citizenship at birth to children born in the United States to parents who are not citizens or permanent resident aliens.Illegal

Alarcon proposes that lawmakers should put politics aside and realize that the livelihood of millions of people are dependent on the immigration policies they enact. In the end it appears that senators are failing the immigrant community of this nation by their inaction, but they are not the only ones to blame because our own president is looking to target immigrants by enacting anti-immigration laws which leaves even

Public Administration Theories and Practice (PAD 500)

Theories in Public Administration that Support Effective Policy Making
Public administration is a process, not an event. It has existed since the inception of government across the globe. But, as a practice, public administration is mostly an American ideology born in the late nineteenth-century as a result of much needed government reform. Classical public administration theory is based on the scientific management and Max Weber’s bureaucratic model. (Denhardt, p. 30)
Effective policymaking requires knowledge of each of these theories to ensure that the public is truly served by the
