(How) Should We Restrict Immigration

Some of the rules in place for immigration need to remain in place, but in the instance of immigrant laborers who come to the United States for labor intensive seasonal work, there should be an easy way for them to acquire temporary or conditional working permits. The employers who "pull" them to the USA should be required to provide temporary housing with proper sanitation facilities. This housing should be offered free or at a nominal fee, since this is seasonal work and minimum wage can barely support a person, much less set up a household for the few months of growing season.

At the same time we should strictly enforce the labor laws. No cheating. No paying substandard wages. No working people to their literal "death". No government turning a blind eye to mistreatment of workers.

Speaking english well enough to answer a round of historical questions was a citizenship requirement for my mother in 1950 and as well for my friend from the Phillipines around 30 years ago. It's an important part of becoming a citizen -- people living in America must be able to understand simple things, read signs, etc..

Outside of becoming a citizen, it is very important for anyone coming the the United States to assimilate and accept local culture. This does not mean to suggest losing ethnic or cultural practices, rather, it means adhering to local customs and learning how people in the new community live, how they take care and function in the neighborhood and how they interact with each other. It means learning to obey traffic laws, littering laws, and civil law. These things are hard to get used to but they help people get along with each other.

As a requirement of citizenship, keeping the criminal element out of the United States should be addressed. However, there are plenty of criminals who never get caught, plenty who get…...

... We Can But Should We? Dara Shalom Chamberlain College of Nursing NR361-65561: Information Systems in Healthcare March 2013 We Can But Should We? “As healthcare embraces technology to improve patient outcomes, streamline operations, and lower costs, the technologies with the most impact are the ones that make things simpler” (Why and How). Various companies are trying to simplify the process of obtaining essential patient information with the use of quick response, or QR codes. These codes are placed on stickers, bracelets, and cards for wallets. When paramedics scan the QR code, they gain access to the patient’s health profile, which contains basic personal information, allergies, medications, and emergency contacts. With instant access to this vital information, medical errors are reduced, and the time that they would otherwise spend obtaining this information is cut. Some people believe that this is a wonderful advancement, and it “could benefit so many folks” (Davis), while others are concerned and skeptical about this new technology. Benefits One advantage of utilizing QR codes in emergency response situations is the shortened time spent obtaining vital patient health information. By cutting down time, paramedics are able to make treatment decisions more quickly. “Every second counts during medical emergencies, and quick access to medical information can be the difference between life and death” (Rich). Immediate access to the individuals medical......

...We Can But Should We: Quick Response Codes Quick Response (QR) Codes What is a Quick Response code? It’s a two- dimensional matrix/bar code. QR codes can provide a wide range of information to patients or family members on ones condition, or treatment. QR codes in turn can assist EMTs, or other healthcare providers with information about an individual such as allergies, blood type, DNR, emergency contacts, as well as other vital information that pertains to an individual (QR Codes in Education, n.d.). QR codes can be scanned or decoded by using quick response software or a scanner to access an individual’s information. With this easy process of accessing information it allows healthcare providers to be more efficient and more attentive with care provided to patients. Impact on Patient Care Delivery In the healthcare field time is of the essence when it comes to life and death situations. With QR codes medical responders are able to access important health information on individuals which in turn makes crucial health decisions simple. For example let’s say an emergency responder comes upon an individual who is not responsive (a diabetic but unknown to responders) as a result medical history such as allergies, medical problems or even current use of medication is now unknown. If this individual has a QR code then the responder is able to access all medical information allowing the responder to provide the best care possible without any major difficulties. Therefore these...

Immigration: Should It Be Legal?

...The history of this great nation has been historically built on the foundation of immigration, the forming of one great nation from the generations of many others, coming together with many great and marvelous ideas. From the beginning we have fought for many different freedoms such as speech and religion, just to name a couple and the list goes on. These types of freedoms people throughout the world covet, therefore attempt to enter the United States of America with hopes of sharing these freedoms. Some immigrants come with a legal passage by an ever-growing generous nation jumping through a large number of hoops and legalities, others on illegal terms in large numbers. Now, is it fair for a nation that has been built on such a vase array of different cultures and world travelers to turn away any new comers like to say “we are full?” Is it ok to punish these people for trying to make a better life for themselves and their families? Is it also fair to the tax paying individuals of this great nation to support such a noble cause from blood sweat and tears of our brows? In this debate we will discuss both sides of the argument, pros and cons of illegal immigration in the United States of America, in hopes to bring about a more clear understanding. Illegal immigration is the migration of people from one country into another illegally, violating laws of that country or state. Illegal immigration is universal and present in developed and underdeveloped countries (Palivos,......

Government Should Restrict on the Migration of People

...Government should restrict on the migration of people Persuasive essay: Government should restrict on the migration of people Nowadays, with the development of technology and globalization, demands for the quality of human life are also higher. They are willing to abandon their hometown to migrate a new place with higher standard of living and more opportunities to earn money. However, the number of migration people growth exponentially. According to the International Organization for migration’s world migration report 2010, the number of migration was estimated at 214 million in 2010 and this number can reach 405 million by 2050. This essay will investigate significant reasons why government should restrict on the migration of people. One the most common argument in favour of migration is it brings a better life. It is believed that people can find good accommodations, health care services, especially good jobs. However, the opposite of this is the reality. All good wages jobs are required high education as well as qualification. To illustrate, people who live in rural areas, they could not get good certificate on education or people migrate from their country to another country, because of the differences in languages as well as education, consequently, they cannot find good jobs as they desired. For example, almost migration people in USA can just find jobs with love wages of $5-$7 such as: wash dishes in restaurants, bust tables, mop floors, pick up garbage......

...We Can But Should We Chamberlin College of Nursing NR361: Info Systems in Healthcare Abstract In this paper we begin with a short history of the Quick Reaction code (QR code) and move onto the QR code in marketing and how it can be similarly used in the healthcare field from advertising to take-home monitoring equipment for patients. We discuss a study conducted by Lin C, Tsai F, Tsai W, Wen H, & Hu M., 2012 and how the use of QR codes has help to decrease wait times in the pharmacy and actually increase accuracy of dispensing correct medications. After discourse on personal information we will end this paper with a few healthcare related ethical concerns. We come to the conclusion that QR codes could be beneficial to the public and private sectors of healthcare. Quick reaction codes (QR code) had their beginning in auto manufacturing plants in Japan in 1994; QR codes were designed to help track automobiles during the manufacturing process (Gottesman, & Baum, 2013). Like many other technologies, when shortly after their initial production, QR codes were found to be useful in many other areas than just automobile manufacturing. QR codes have recently been heavily used for marketing. The QR code is able to hold a significant amount of information and anyone with the correct tool to read the code is able to extract this information such as a website or such that for a consumer could lead to a shoe store, a hair salon, or even an electronics store. From auto......

Should We Permit Euthanasia

...Should we permit Euthanasia [pic] Sleeping Angel on a Bed of Clouds A doctor’s function has changed over time. In the past, the doctor was a person who besides being your friend treated the diseases. Now a doctor is a stranger who combats diseases, but he/she is not always your friend. What will never change is their constant struggle against death. However, their job is not only to prevent death but also to improve their patient’s quality of life. Many times there is nothing a doctor can do to prevent a patient from dying if the patient has a terminal disease; all he/she can do is wait for death to arrive. This waiting time can be very painful for both the patients and the people who surround them. Not practicing euthanasia at the request of the dying person is violating a person’s rights, creating an economic burden, interfering with a doctor’s job, and increasing suffering. First of all, deciding if you want to be alive or not is a personal decision. Neither the doctors nor the government has the power to decide if you should live or not. Since it is not their life and they are not in your situation, they cannot make that kind of decision for you. It might sound like suicide, but again, that is our problem, not theirs. They give us the liberty to decide our job, our family, our religion, and even our sex preference. Why should they not give us the right to decide if we want to live or not? That should be the first right before all the ones I have mentioned. It is not......

Who Is and Should Be Responsible for Immigration Policies Executive or Congress?

...arrangements by which we express our consent and govern ourselves. The development, design and structures of constitutionalism in the United States are important not because these concepts are old, or even exclusively ours, but because they form the basic architecture of American Liberty. Who controls the nation’s immigration laws- Congress or Executive? Although the question seems straight forward, the historical picture is mixed, and the text of the U.S. Constitution does not point clearly to the answer. While the Constitution’s text and the various Supreme Court cases interpreting this text suggest that the federal government has the exclusive power to enact and enforce the nation’s immigration laws, state and local authorities still play an important role in regulation of immigration because they shape the conditions of daily life for immigrants in their jurisdictions. This piece of writing will in the best possible way, clearly explain who between Congress and Executive should be responsible for immigration laws and conclude that, Congress according to the U.S constitution, is and should be responsible for immigration laws using related law cases as example. Article I, Section 8, clause 4 of the Con¬stitution entrusts the federal legislative branch with the power to “establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.” This clear textual command for uniformity establishes that the federal government, specifically Congress, is responsible for crafting the laws that determine......

Should We Legalize Marijuana

...In the perspective of America's war on drugs, marijuana is one of the biggest enemies. And since alcohol and tobacco, two life threatening substances, are legal it is a relevant question to ask why marijuana is illegal. The taxpayers of America can partly answer this question when they fill out their tax forms and when they hear the hash rhetoric used against marijuana by the government. The fact that marijuana is illegal is sufficiently caused by the amount of money, jobs, and pride invested in the drug war. In other words, the government cannot turn back now. In order to demonstrate this cause, the difference between illegal and legal substances (specifically alcohol and marijuana) must be abolished. Alcohol, as we all know, was once illegal. The reason that it was illegal was because the ill effects of alcohol led many people to fight for the prohibition cause. Some of these ill effects are direct and some alter the behavior and motor skills of the drinker, helping them do things they would not usually do. More often than not, the direct effects result from heavy drinking, like "depression is frequently diagnosed in alcoholics" (Rittenhouse 140). But just getting drunk can do serious harm. "Accidental trauma forms the major cause of brain damage from alcohol" (140) would indicate alcohol as a threat to human health. Marijuana on the other hand seems a little out of place in its classification as illegal. The source previously cited notes that, "Although it is......

How Should We Study the Mind?

...How should we study the mind? In Precursors to Cognitive Psychology we saw that psychologists adopted a number of methodologies throughout the late nineteenth century and the twentieth century, including focusing only on observable behaviour. One early methodology was introspection, which was used to study the elements of perception, although this ran into difficulties. However, for higher-level cognitive processes such as decision making and voluntary behaviour, many social scientists continue to ask people about the reasons for their own behaviour. In a key paper published in 1977, and titled Telling more than we can know: Verbal reports on mental processes, Richard Nisbett and Timothy Wilson reviewed several studies that appeared to show that people are sometimes unaware of the reasons underlying their own behaviour. In one study, Nisbett and Wilson observed consumers choosing between identical packs of nylon stockings arranged in a row. They found that people were biased towards choosing from the right side of the array but, when asked about their choice, people did not refer to the position of the stockings in the array. When specifically asked whether they might have been affected by the position of the item, almost everybody denied this. Based on this and the results of many other studies, Nisbett and Wilson concluded that people's explanations of their own behaviours were not based on having access to the underlying cognitive processes, but rather were theories......

Should We or Should We Not Drill?

...Drill 2 We need to get off our dependency of foreign oil. There are two major suggestions on how to solve this issue. One is to follow President Barack Obama’s plan. He proposes that the best way for us to get off of oil dependency is to create alternate energy resources. This would offer more jobs for the people. Most of the Republicans on the other hand, want to do more drilling in the United States and more offshore drilling. They say that having more oil companies will create more jobs. Who is right or wrong? We need to look at the situation for a long term fix. Drilling more yes will offer more jobs but who is to say for how long? Also, as more fossil fuels are being burned, we are polluting our air and our country. Offshore drilling is dangerous to the environment, it is dangerous to the people, and it is not a long term solution to freeing our dependency of foreign oil. When drilling off shore you run into the chance of having another oil spill like we had last year. There were millions of sea life animals that were affected by this event. Fishing companies were unable to fish in those areas because of the oil contaminate in the fish. How many lives are we going to put in danger by drilling offshore? If there is another accident like last year can be we really be sure that it will be stopped right away or will it take up to three months to get through the red tape from another country to fix it? By drilling and mining for fossil fuels, we are......

Should We Stay in the Eu

...Should the UK remain in the EU? In the aftermath of the Second World War, Winston Churchill called for the creation of a "United States of Europe" to bind France and Germany together. In doing so, he made clear that Britain would be a supportive but independent partner of any such entity. He famously said: 'We are with Europe but not of it." In the end, Britain did join the European Economic Community but only in 1973, 15 years after the Treaty of Rome was signed. We joined the Social Chapter in 1997, eight years after it was adopted by other member states. And we never signed up to Economic and Monetary Union or the Schengen Agreement on common borders. However, it is not until now that the British public have been presented with the opportunity to have their say on the matter of our continued membership. Following the 2015 general election, the re-elected Prime Minister David Cameron reiterated a Conservative Party manifesto commitment to hold an 'in-out' referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union by the end of 2017 following renegotiations with EU leaders. This means that between now and the vote the public have to decide whether Europe benefits the country regarding immigration, trade, investment and the protection of Human Rights and peace. Firstly, with regards to the economic repercussions of leaving the EU, many supporters of the so called “Brexit” claim that Britain would have very little difficulty in negotiating some form of free trade agreement......

Was Legislation to Restrict Immigration Justified or Unjustified?

...never enough jobs, and employers often took advantage of the immigrants. Men were generally paid less than other workers, and women less than men. Social tensions were also part of the immigrant experience. Often stereotyped and discriminated against, many immigrants suffered verbal and physical abuse because they were different. While large-scale immigration created many social tensions, it also produced a new vitality in the cities and states in which the immigrants settled. The newcomers helped transform American society and culture, demonstrating that diversity, as well as unity, is a source of national strength. Population in many cities kept growing abruptly because of new immigrants. In the early 1800's, New York's population went from 60,489 to 202,589. Abrupt population growth brought issues for the residents. Houses were compacted together and toilets overflowed, spreading diseases. Crime was also a huge problem. To help new immigrants, societies were set up to aid them and politicians set up organizations to help. They immigrants also develop new jobs for Americans and their culture. Legislation to restrict immigration was unjustified because they new comers contribute to America society and also provide new job....

Should Immigration Laws Be Reformed

...English 4/12/2016 Should immigration laws be reformed Promising freedom and opportunity, the United States attracts individuals to come to the USA. But the current immigration system in the united states is broken: families are isolated, immigration workers are exploited, people die trying to cross the border, and there is rampant discrimination. The government should be for reforming immigration laws because it keeps families together and creates rational process of citizenship for new Americans etc. The first reason why immigration should be reformed is economy benefits by immigration reforms. Immigration reform would increase U.S. GDP by at least 0.84 percent. According to the American immigration council, “This would translate into at least a $1.5 trillion cumulative increase in GDP over 10 years, which includes approximately $1.2 trillion in consumption and $256 billion in investment”. Second, immigration system can uphold children’s basic human rights and ensure access to critical public services, programs, and economic supports for children and their families. It can ensure that children receive legal representation before all immigration authorities and, for all unaccompanied children, the appointment of an independent child advocate from the moment of detention throughout the course of any immigration or other related court proceedings. The other reason is it keeps family together Under today’s broken immigration system, many immigrants......

Should We Cry for Argentina

...Should We Cry For Argentina Question 1: Argentina’s peso was linked to the U.S. dollar through a currency board for 10 year before it was cut loose. Why did Argentina peg its currency to the dollar in the first place? Answer: In the initial time of 20th Century, Argentina was one of the wealthiest and successful economies in the world. Situation started changing after World War I, Argentina started undergoing slow economic growth rate because of bad policy, political gridlock and adverse change in trade. In 1970’s, Outbreak of oil crises concluded severe debt crises of 1980’s in Latin America. Government spending was more than the tax, market borrowing, which ultimately gave movement to inflation. Since 1980 Argentina was badly suffering from heavy debts and fast growing inflation. In 1989, inflation peaked to 5000 %, GDP lowered down by 10% from 1989 and 20 % fall on per capita GDP. In order to stabilize the growing inflation, the convertibility plan of 1991, fixed a peg of the Argentina currency peso against the dollar which means one peso to one dollar.  This laid the foundation for exchange-rate stabilization. This helped Argentines to freely convert their pesos into dollars under currency board and increased bank deposits and loans in dollar became extensive. The main reason behind this implementation was to increase people confidence on Argentina currency after way long inflation. Idea was fixing the exchange rate which shows stabilization in inflation and thus...
