America's ongoing immigration battle

Immigration remains one of the most highly debated topics in the nation today. Countless families have uprooted their lives to seek better ones in America, yet some have continued to face problems in a country that promises freedom. As the latest presidency has led to changes to immigration policies, many Arizona residents have waited anxiously for new policies to take effect. While the controversy continues, the message is clear: there may be inevitable obstacles within today's immigration system. 

Just last month, The Arizona Republic covered protests taking place in the state that revolved around immigration policies. According to the Republic, the protest was in response to the arrest of Arizona mother Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos almost a year before. The woman had previously used a fake Social Security number to gain employment, and, due to Trump's recent tightening of immigration laws, she was deported through a check-in with a federal agency. Not only did this event ignite the community, but the entire nation, as well. The next point of focus involves America's "dreamers" -- the children who arrived to the country illegally but have grown up there -- and the potential changes from Congress.

The New Yorker also comments on America's ambiguous immigration system, noting that even a small charge made long ago can come back to haunt immigrants. In fact, the newspaper highlights the case of one young man from Barbados, who faced the deportation process after attempting to board a flight. Because of his past charges of having bought stolen property, possessing marijuana and engaging in prostitution, James Busse encountered a close call. Fortunately, the young man was not required to continue deportation procedures, but not all immigrants receive such positive feedback in immigration court. The New Yorker points out that this case should not be referred to as a freak accident, but rather a reflection of America's tendency to treat immigrants unfairly during a time when they already face endless trials.
