I Am An Immigrant – Voices

“The kids who have been here illegally most of their lives are as much American as I am. Since this is the only home they’ve known, then they have the right to stay.”
Edison, NJ
I don’t believe that immigration is a huge problem. It’s what America has been built on. And even though we have issues of our own, I feel like bringing more people in to help us out may make it easier on us. There’s so much worse going on all over the world in different countries that if we have a safe place for people to come why close our doors to them. America is a better option than having innocent people suffer from war, famine, and strife.
When it comes to the dream act, the kids who have been here illegally most of their lives are as much American as I am, in my opinion. If they’ve been here since they were in diapers and this is the only home they’ve known, then they have a right to stay. Their parents came here because they wanted their children to have a better life and we shouldn’t rip that opportunity away from the children. The parents are a different flip side I guess. If they’re going through the process of living here legally then we shouldn’t kick them out while they are applying to become citizens, but on the other hand if they’re not making the effort to become legal citizens then why should we allow them to stay. In terms of the children who were brought here illegally,when they were very young, they should be able to stay, at least until they are eighteen. The DREAM act, in my opinion, does need to be reworked in order to better benefit America while also giving immigrants and children of undocumented easier access to a better, more legal life here. And we, as a great nation, need to be more open and accepting of those in need of a safe home.
