This paper discusses the difficulties that have arisen from immigration and its impact on politics in the United States. It specifically discusses how the last decade has seen an unprecedented influx of immigrants that brought a renewed tension and voter outcry to the 2008 presidential campaigns and elections. The paper discusses the Republican and Democratic stands on the issue.
From the Paper:"Almost everyone living in America can trace their family line back to immigrants. Because America is the self-professed melting pot of all cultures, it is understandable that immigration has been a difficult issue in the political arena since our nation's inception. Unfortunately, this will continue to be a problem as long as long as we elect candidates who refuse to fulfill the difficult role of keeping future illegal immigrants out. Though we want to promote the idea that the United States is a place of opportunity for all people of all races, creeds, and origins, we must look to protect the people who are living, working, and raising families here already by ensuring that those who enter our country in the future do so according to the laws of the country in which they so desperately want to be a part of."
