Did you know that immigrants come to the United States for reasons such as trauma and this motivates them to come to the U.S.A. In the article “Mercury News” is about the people that have been deported back to there home country. Most of the immigrants go to a detention centers or lawyers so the can help them with their case. When the authors Ali and ETHAN said “In total, the ICE Air operation flew nearly 43,000 people in and out of Oakland during that period. Almost 27,000 were being deported. The other 16,000 were being transferred, part of a detention and relocation system that advocates and immigration lawyers. What this is talking about that the ICE has flew 43,000 in and out of Oakland during a period” Tadayon and Baron. Some of the people were deported back to their country and the others were going to a detention center. ICE is “The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is a federal law…”(ice.gov) Immigrants is a person from a different country come to the U.S.A illicit. Deportation is when the law expels a specific person with no residents from the country. Based on research/interviews it shows that immigrants feel harm in their home country and come to the U.S.A for a better life; but they fear deportation because they don’t want to go back with the violence.
First, Not all Immigrants but many have the choice to come to the united states to get rid of the violence and for a better life and so they can help their family.This is true because immigrants come to the United States for a better life. This article discusses the reasons why immigrants come to the United States. It also talks about the motivation that they come to the United states. In fact, In the article it said “To join their families, to work, and to seek safety and refuge from war, violence, and natural disasters”(Soros). This article discusses the reasons why immigrants come to the United States. It also talks about the motivation them come to the United states. The reason that the immigrants come to the united states is because want to feel safe because in there home country it wasn’t safe. This created all the negativity in their home country and this motivated to come to the United States. This is abnormal. I interviewed one of my family members and was asking her questions. One of the questions was “What motivated you to come to the United States”. And one of her reasons was that she wanted to come to the United States because she wanted to get rid of the violence. Where she lived in El Salvador it was very dangerous because there were always fight about gangs. And secondly, she also said that she wanted to help the family because in El Salvador the life there is very hard she said“ you get paid 6 dollars fro 12 hours of work time” and when she came to the United States she also said “it was very different no violence and get paid more.” So what this is trying to say is that the lives from two different places it is very different.
Secondly, Immigrants have a fear of deportation don’t want to go back to the violence. This article is about the reasons that they leave their home country and come to the United States. When George soros said “ In 2010, for example, 13 percent of the people apprehended at the U.S. southern border came from Central America’s so-called Northern Triangle—Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. With violence and crime now at unprecedented levels—they are among the top 10 most violent countries in terms of homicides—that number had jumped to 42 percent in 2016. What this is talking about that the three countries are very dangerous and they come to the United States to get a better life with no violence. This matters because families are losing people who they really care about or this motivates them to leave their home country and go to the United States for a better life. Also when the authors said Ali and Ethan said “Oakland International Airport served as the staging ground for nearly 1,000 flights chartered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement between 2010 and 2018, carrying detainees on their way to deportation or transfer between detention centers.During those periods of time they went back to the violence that they didn’t want to experience again.
In conclusion, Based on research/interviews it shows that immigrants feel harm in their home country and come to the U.S.A for a better life; but they fear of deportation because they don’t want to go back with the violence. As a child of an immigrant what they have said to me is somewhat similar from the story that i’m writing but from what ive heard that it is very dangerous because of the two rival gangs that are two streets away from each other the MS-13 and 18th street gang. And in my perspective when I went 3 years ago it wasnt that dangerous because I was pretty far away from the dangerous area and I didn’t experience any violence but I saw a lot of violence in the news about gangs. So immigrants come to the United States for a better life.
