Dear President,

Hello, My name is Shardezya Clarke I'm 16 years old. I go to Community Academy Of Science and Health. I'm currently in the 10th Grade and I live in Boston, Ma. My mother is Black, French and German and my farther was born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica. I plan on graduating high school with a 3.5 or higher GPA.  After I graduate high school, I plan on going to Law school. I have three colleges that I would like to attend: University of Virginia, University of Michigan, and Yale. Today I will be discussing immigration and how immigration is a huge problem In the U.S.A that needs some changes in order to make the world a better place for everybody. Anchor babies and Birthright citizenship are the biggest issues right now for immigrants.

This topic doesn't affect me, but it affects the community I live in. Some children in the U.S.A have a hard life because they are Anchor babies. An Anchor baby is a  child of undocumented immigrants. Most of the time they don't find out they are anchor babies until their parents believe there old enough to know. When you are a anchor baby it's hard for your family because your parents don't know if you are able to stay with them or not. If anybody from the government finds out your= are  not suppose to be in the U.S.A your own children can get taken away. That needs to come to a end. No one should have to worry about their family getting split apart.   That's not fair  to break parents' hearts.

 Immigrants are always being discriminated against in America.  Sometimes, people assume just because your Hispanic that you crossed the border. I don't think any of my friends should be humiliated to come to school or talk about where they come from. My friends should be able to feel safe & happy in their environment without being judged by people every day. The majority of people who come from Hispanic families didn't cross the border.  They don't have to become naturalized, they don't have there families split apart. But, The society that we live in may never understand how the immigrants or innocent people that haven't been through any of these processes feel. 

        This topic/ Issue is important for you future president because we want everyone in America to feel welcomed in coming to a new country. We want immigrants to not feel ashamed about were they came from before they made it to America. We want to give immigrants a chance to redeem themselves or start a fresh new life and we shouldn't be judging them while they start there new journey here.
