My name is Eduardo Guzman a fellow student at Fremont High School. I learned that both sides had major problems that resulted in violence and death. Growing up as a teenager in America is hard because you have many obstacles. For example, my parents immigrated to the United States and they had nothing. They didn’t know anyone and struggled for a period of time. Also, you sometimes have very difficult choices that impact you in a negative way and these choices don’t just you but also how people see you, how the world sees you and most importantly how people in power see you. In addition, you will be judged for being a different race, not knowing English and for having parents who never finished High school.
An issue that our leaders should prioritize is immigration because this affects everyone in the United States. For example, if they kicked out all Mexican people who have been hired by the people who own businesses they would have no employees and if white people worked they would want a high salary. So there would be many downsides of immigration itself because it impacts people everywhere. Where if we didn’t have immigration it would be better for most of us. Something I would tell the leaders of America is that if we work together our bonds will become stronger and our economy would be more efficient. Something I would like to see in the future America is everyone being equal, no judgments, no racism but everyone being united as one no matter who you are.
With much love and respect,
