am lobbying for another Amnesty day. A large amount of the immigrants in
America are here illegally. However, a lot of them have been living here
peacefully, working, and contributing positively in some way to the United
States. Though not all illegal immigrants are contributing positively to the
US, all illegal immigrants should still be granted citizenship. That way we can
crackdown on more of the crimes going on with them because they actually exist
in our system. Deportation is always an option as well, but I feel like
prejudice is playing a role in this too. It seems as though the government
doesn't want anyone else from outside the country to be here. It's already
difficult to get into the US legally, so why on Earth would they let illegal
I chose this topic for two reasons. The first reason is simply because it's
interesting to know that instead of pardoning people for trying to live a
better life, they're wasting their lives away trying to find and deport them.
Twelve million is a huge number to be trying to get rid of when we have so many
other things to worry about in the US. We might as well just give them
citizenship. Most of them aren't planning on leaving anyway. The second is
reason is because I understand what these illegal immigrants are going through.
I have so many family members in Nigeria praying to get their Visa to come over
to visit at least. Most of them have been denied. Their intentions are in no
way harmful to the US, they are all healthy beings, and can contribute loads of
things to the US but for some reason they were all denied. Nigeria is filled
with extremely obvious corruption. Though the US is corrupt as well, they're
better off here where the corruption is sugarcoated to the max and can still
walk the streets without having to see a huge war tank and it’s launcher
pointed in their direction. Basically, these people mean no harm. They're not
here purposely to break the rules. They're running from something or looking
forward to something, that's pretty much it.
The main supporters of my lobbying idea are immigrants. The
main opponents of my lobbying idea are the majority of the government (seeing
as how they have yet to have another amnesty day). There is a pending
legislation dealing with my lobbying idea. It talks about securing the border
and granting the immigrant workers legal access to actual jobs.
