Immigration and Increase in Population in New York and Miami
Immigration cannot be prevented especially within the systems of economic progress that the present human civilization adapts itself to. Unfortunately, immigration, as hoped by the enthusiasts of globalization, does not return the expected results of cultural diversity within the different communities in the world. It could be considered then that the empowered immigrants, particularly the Latinos, who are currently residing –in America could endanger the cultural heritage of the country.
The invasion that the Mexicans make within the American society brings so much impact on how the new generation of America sees their own country’s culture and traditions. Changes in the policies that are utilized to examine the immigration purposes of people coming in and out of the country should indeed be closely evaluated. By this procedure, the system used by the officials in assessing the reasons of the migrant’s staying in the country would become more effective, especially in briefing the said minorities on their duties, their rights and their limitations from the provisions of the US government. If this is not done early, it is not impossible for radical adjustments of minorities becoming the major population in America and the natives of the country becoming mere visitors to their own land.
