In the article, “Immigration” (Last updated August 12, 2022) I learned that people with brown skin had to flee their country just because they were not born in the United States.  This horrible situation led to multicultural societies; many modern states are characterized by various cultures and ethnicities that Have derived from previous periods of immigration.  It also led in the 1950s to the end of colonization.  But because of the devastation, left many desperate Hispanics with sadness about leaving children behind. Examples of their situation are states maintaining control of their borders and therefore are able to monitor and determine the number of immigrants who are able to remain permanently. It’s horrible to know that you wake up to the news of the police entering your own house. Having to say bye to your own family. And suddenly never see them again because the borders are blocked. One hand standing and one arm breaking by how much you have held yourself to stay on top.

How would you feel if you had to live through something like this? Why would you feel that way? How does this relate to Federalism?

What do I think of this horrid condition?

I think in the united states it is crucial.  It must be horrible to feel there is no hope.  It’s hard to imagine having to flee many of your loved ones just because you were not accepted since you weren’t born in the U.S.  The picture represents the unforgiven convenience these poor families have been led to. I can feel their anger and sadness because they don’t have their family on their side.
