Dear America, I feel surprised about your article I love the way you talk about the immigrant struggle how they have been impact one sentence that stood out to me was Immigrants care about each other and their families like everyone else, and these new policies are degrading.

I was 11 years old when I came into the United States to have a better education. I’m an immigrant too like other people. My mother came into the United States to have a better job because in Guatemala there i
Education is very important and this matters to immigrants so much more than people think. It is what people look for when they immigrate. They are looking for better opportunities and an education that will help them in life. They search for a better lifestyle and education is one of the priorities.
Dear Remigia, I feel that this is a very controversial topic. A line that stood out to me was when you stated, “ They are not stealing jobs but finding opportunities”. This stood out to me because lots of people think that immigrants come here to “steal jobs” and that’s a very common misunderstanding, and although I agree with most of your points, you mentioned that immigrants come to the U.S. for better education and a better life for their families a lot, do you think that there are other reasons why people may come to the U.S.? Thank you for sharing this information and writing this blog. Looking forward to your next piece of writing!
Dear Remigia I agree with your point about other people coming from other countries because both of my parents came from Mexico because it was hard in Mexico at the time so my dad had to drop out of school to help out his family and came to the US to have a better life and work very hard as a Mexican man starting with nothing to having something in his life
Dear Remigia, thank you for sharing your personal experiences and feelings in regard to immigration. I agree with you 100% that immigrants are not stealing jobs but are only finding the opportunities they can in order to help their family. I really appreciate how you added in statistics such as the percentage of citizens who are immigrants in the U.S. and how the U.S. is actually the country that has the highest and most diverse rates of immigration. I am a daughter of two strong immigrants who came here from a completely different country too, and I have been working towards my goal of being a nurse too! Just like your experiences have inspired you, mine has as well. Great job on your post!
I am extremely impressed by your shadow box because you added a little grass area with animals in them and I thought that was a really cool idea. another thing that I liked about your shadow box was that you included pictures of clothing from your culture. Thanks for your shadowbox. I look forward to seeing what you make next because I think you have a creative mind.
Hey Remigia, I am a student here at San Jose State and wanted to mention how pretty your shadow box looks and how great the pictures looks to show your culture and the values they hold. I love the the animals and grass that you made to give the box more life and meaning behind it. I like that you have the courage to display you culture and where you come from on the box to show the love you from where you came from and I think that is amazing.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform 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.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
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.
