I find the whole immigration debate to be very daunting. It seems like no one can agree on the best way to handle immigration but lots of people have questions. How can you not allow people into this country that want a better life and are willing to work their butts off to achieve it? Others will argue about their increased tax dollars if we have an open door policy. Others will say there should be a criteria to allowing people in. Others will say that the criteria is skewed and it depends on from which countries you are immigrating from. What I do know is that if anything ever went down in America and I was forced to flee I’d hope and pray that another country would take me and my family in. This old episode of SNL (Pre-Trump) brought up some great points about people’s perspective on this issue. #immigration #thisisamerica #snl #michaelche #colinjost #america #americanimmigration

americanintervention. The new Mexican President has announced a deal with Central American l

The new Mexican President has announced a deal with Central American leaders to combat poverty and stimulate job growth as a solution to combat the mass Central American exodus. This sounds great and all, and I think investing in and helping Central America fight poverty and repair the damage that decades of blatantly horrific American foreign policy has created is definitely a step in the right direction, but it won’t happen without American support, which is obviously not there right now when our President wants to spend $40 billion on a racist wall instead of directly fighting the root causes of poverty and violence that are causing people to flee. For what it’s worth it’s a far stretch, mainly because I don’t think the greedy people that run our country particularly see benefits in helping our neighbors south of the border develop. At least not under the current establishment whether Democrat or Republican. There is hope with some of the new elected Reps but it’s going to take a lot more than just them. Frankly I think it’s gonna take a unified people’s movement to start changing our nonsensical and bullyish foreign policy to combat this mess.

Here are some straight facts about the number of US immigrants (provided by Pew Reseach Center): Most immigrants (76%) are in the country legally, while a quarter are unauthorized. In 2015, 44% were naturalized U.S. citizens. 24% of all immigrants were unauthorized immigrants in 2015. From 1990 to 2007, the unauthorized immigrant population tripled in size – from 3.5 million to a record high of 12.2 million. During the Great Recession, the number declined by 1 million and since then has leveled off. #troothtalk #americanimmigration #numbers #news #bythenumbers #2015 #population

#americanimmigration Immigration, #immigrants , #refugees , #asylumseekers , have been in the news for a while. Immigration is an interesting subject. I picked up this book at a #librarybooksale last year. #aleppo had been in the news. It is a #student #textbook Published in 2011, but it is still relevant. #america is a #countryofimmigrants🇺🇸 This book reminds me of a trip we took to see #thestatueofliberty🗽🇺🇸 and #ellisisland I thought, “Some of us were already here.” #mustlovebooks

The beautiful Maroon Bells is located just outside of Aspen, Colorado. In fact, over the summer you take a bus from the edge of town into the park itself. Over the winter the road is closed, meaning the only way in is ski, hike or snowmobile. No matter how you get there it is always an adventure! . . . . . . . . #immigration #movetocolorado #immigratetousa #usimmigration #americanimmigration #immigratetous #migratetotheus #immigratetoamerica #migratetoamerica #liveinamerica #workinamerica #exploreamerica #immigrants

Remembering all those who perished 17 years ago to this day in the US. Many firefighters and other rescuers descend from Irish ancestry. We are so proud they did their best till their last to save American lives and remember them today.

A handful of history: The first person to be processed through the Ellis island immigration centre was an Irish girl called Annie Moore in 1892. A sculpture is erected in Cork and in Ellis Island in memory of this. At 15 yrs old she and her brothers boarded the SS Nevada bringing just a small bag and memories with them with the hope of a better future. She and her brothers made the journey but Annie went on to live a tough tenement life and died in her 40’s never moving further than Manhattan. Five of her 11 children died in infancy. All were buried in unmarked graves. But there were survivors and descendants who prospered. Having one sculpture in Ireland and a similar one in Ellis Island is a beautiful memorial and symbolises the bond between both countries.

Enjoy beautiful fall weather? Take a ride up any of the mountain canyons on the outskirts of Salt Lake City in September and October, and you'll find yourself in the glow of autumn colors. Gorgeous aspens flame yellow leaves against the sky and roads unfurl like ribbons through a vibrant tapestry of reds and oranges. Get out and snap the perfect pic against a backdrop that just screams, it's fall! . . . . . . . . #immigration #usimmigration #americanimmigration #immigratetous #migratetotheus #immigratetoamerica #migratetoamerica #liveinamerica #workinamerica #exploreamerica #visitsaltlake #liveinutah #visitutah #saltlakecity #utah #immigrants

Kam Wah Chung & CO: a piece of history sealed up and left just the way Doc Hay’s left it in 1940’s when he broke his hip and had to travel to Portland for surgery. Unfortunately, Doc Hay did not return to his medicine shop. “The museum was built in the 1870s, possibly as a trading post. This tiny, unassuming building became home to two Chinese immigrants, Ing “Doc” Hay (TOP PHOTO) and Lung On (BOTTOM) Lung was the first car sales man around driving cars from Portland and selling them in John Day. Both became locally famous: Lung On as a general store proprietor and businessman, and “Doc” Hay as a practitioner of herbal medicine. For 50-some years, the building was a social, medical and religious center for the Oregon’s Chinese community.” Besides Chinese medicine, herbs, teas and other dry goods. They found some 80 plus bottles of Kentucky whiskey in the floors, walls and buried in the yard. (The incense alter has a orange and another fruit that preserved well over the years due to perfect climate for it🧐🤓) Thanks again to @ahistorygeek for the suggestion. @filson_83 for the driving and the thinking ahead. #historyiscool #chinesehistory #chineseamerican #thingsthatwerecoolinthe1800s #americanimmigration.

December 1906 - Arrival at Ellis Island Who came? The rich? People with fancy titles? No: the lonely, the miserable and the lost. American culture is acknowledged as the most optimistic, the most energetic the world has ever seen. Who else lands men on the moon, or sends a camera to Planet Mars and has it zip around taking photos? Who else in 1914 digs a ditch to connect two oceans (the Panama Canal) or in 1858 lays a telegraph line across the bottom of the Atlantic? Americans do that. We are so clearly the sons and daughters of immigrants - people who came with nothing but the determination to grab any chance and make it go... and finding a vast, rich continent, and here a broad, deep harbor and a perpetually ice-free port. #newyorkdynamic #ellisisland #americanimmigration

30 years ago, Grace + Henry lived in the upper-right attic of this building. My mom was, in her words, fresh off the boat and six months pregnant. They slept on a futon on the ground and picked up mismatched furniture when students moved out of nearby housing. At the crack of dawn, they took a bus downtown to the Village Mart Deli where my parents made sandwiches alongside my grandparents. After the morning rush, my dad went off to classes while my mom worked til close. This is a part of their story, and it continues. #americanimmigration #koreandiaspora
