I am satisfied by your post because I can relate to you. My parents came from Mexico with nothing and din’t finish high school either. One thing you said that stood out to me was were you said “An issue that our leaders should prioritize is immagration because this affects everyone in the United States.” I think it’s important for our leaders of America to know that immagrants don’t bring bad things to the United States, they bring culture and hark work to it. Thanks for sharing your post. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

I am satisfied with your post because you cover what it is like to be an immigrant. What is intriguing, are the problems one as an immigrant, is facing.
One thing you said that stood out to me was this: “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.” I think it is well written because I can relate.
I was intrigued by your post because your personal take on the issue drew me in. You told us what it’s like to be an immigrant, what it’s like to feel judged for your differences. I agree that immigration is not something to fear. My favorite part of your discussion was the conclusion: ” 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.” I think this is an important statement, and I agree that if we all work together it would benefit everyone. Great post!!
Thank you for posting this. I loved how you touched on the fact that America would be greatly impacted if the immigrants were kicked out, and I think this is an issue several people overlook. What do you think that we can do, in our own communities, to help spread equality to everyone, especially immigrants, who may feel suppressed, and not like a true member of society? Thank you very much for your post,
I love you post and what you agreeing with in fact I agree with you. I love the line where you said, ” 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.” I definitely agree with you I wish leaders from american would understand too. Mostly because it would be a great impact if immigrants would all leave we would be left with a lot of job openings because immigrants are big helpful impacts in our communities.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
