Education For Immigrants
All people in our country deserve a good education. More than one tenth of our country is made up of immigrants who can not afford a proper education.
Dear Mr. or Mrs. President,
Our country is great and full of opportunities. However, everyday immigrants are struggling to obtain enough money to support their families. Some immigrants can not find a well paying job because they can not afford a good education in our nation. These immigrants come to our country is because their home country is engulfed in war and/or they are seeking a better lives for their family. Ultimately they are chasing the “American Dream.” But what is the American Dream if these people can not even get an education in America.
The United States Of America is made up of a large portion of uneducated immigrants because these immigrants do not receive enough money to afford a sufficient education, this eventually leads to them not finding a well paying job.
In America %13.3 of the population are immigrants, these immigrants do not make enough money to afford a good education. This is because they do not have enough money to afford a house and food. Therefore, they are not able to receive an education at a university. Although in America public Elementary, Middle, and High Schools are free community colleges and universities are very, very expensive. Scholarships for colleges and universities are very difficult to obtain. All in all our country has to change college policies for immigrants.
After these uneducated immigrants finish their minimal education they can not find a good career because they do not meet requirements of fulfilling a well paying corporate job. After these uneducated immigrants finish their minimal education they can not find a good career because they do not meet requirements of fulfilling a well paying corporate job. Eventually when these immigrants find a job it is a poor paying job. This leads to the families of these people to have minimal resources such as food. This same process is eventually repeated generation to generation.
I understand how some may argue with my claim by stating that community college is a good alternative to large colleges and universities and that college for immigrants is already free for them. Although most immigrant students attend a community college, most immigrants work at a lower social status job. In America the government only pays for colleges for immigrants if the total is under a certain amount. For example if the immigrant wants to go to a university the government will not pay all of the tuition fees. Thus proving my claim that uneducated immigrants work jobs with lower pay.
In conclusion, more and more immigrants are coming to the United States Of America and they are working low paying jobs because of the poor education they receive in The United States. All in all we need to fix this issue and help all the immigrants who are coming to America to chase the “American Dream.”
