1. The economic, social, and political aspects of immigration have caused controversy regarding ethnicity, economic benefits, jobs for non-immigrants, settlement patterns, impact on upward social mobility, crime, and voting behavior.

2. Between 1880 and 1920 the U.S. acted as a huge magnet for immigrations from all directions. Most settled in large cities like San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Boston. Previous immigrants had come to America from western and northern Europe and were often well educated, spoke English and had useful skills. America was viewed as the “golden door” to opportunity a hope of a better life. The President’s actions increase the chances that anyone attempting to cross the border illegally will be caught and sent back. Society today has a problem with immigrants wanting to come to America because they want to find jobs that should be just for Americans.

3. Today society race is looked upon as something that is "bad" because of how the media portrays it to be. Anyone who is born outside of the US and wanting to come to America to find a better life created tension. Politicians talk about the stop of immigration, but nothing is ever done, or done fast enough. Racism and immigration are connected because each topic is thought to be harmful. Each word is thought by society in  negative way.
