Hello Tanessa, I totally agree with your statements. The U.S. is really treating immigrants wrong because there are so many laws that they are trying to enforce on immigrants while forgetting that america is built up on immigrants. Also the statement that you made saying that “No matter how different we all are, we should be treated the same,” which I strongly agree with. Thanks so much for sharing your post.
Your post is very well written, and I totally agree with everything that you talked about. You brought up a lot of great argumentative points and educational ones as well. For example, I did not know about the 1917 act or about how deportation and the negative treatment of immigrants can cause depression. These are really great points. I truly believe America is a land built on immigrants, and it still is. Immigrants make up so much of the GDP and economy, that if they were to be deported, especially the young adults under DACA, it would cost the country a lot. I thought this article was interesting about DACA if you would like to check it out: https://www.google.com/amp/s/m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_59b15b26e4b0d0c16bb52a87/amp
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.
