Immigrating to a new country where many people don’t know the language, the culture or history can be very scary and not to mention, a complicated process. People are immigrating for a better life, provide for their family, or in some cases, to start fresh again. Most may think that the experience coming to America is a dream, while others have not had the same experience.
So who is immigrating to America? Well, everyone really; from all walks of life. Arguably, young people speak out on these issues the most.
With new immigration laws, coming to America is not as easy as it used to be. There are many documents that have to be filled out and the timing to come and not to mention, making sure that the person or people get to where they want to go.
The last thing for anyone who is immigrating to America is to find out that they are dropped off at another destination other than the one intended. The family may not be familiar with the customs or ways of living and now to be dropped off somewhere without any assistance, can be frightening.
Could being dropped off at the wrong location be avoided? Most likely it could be. However, what to take into consideration is that there are so many immigrants coming to America that it is hard to know if everything is going to run smoothly. Those who have family members here already may have it a little easier because someone can guide them to where they need to go. Others may have no one here and have to navigate a country that they may not know a whole lot about.
Regardless, immigrants should look back at their experience and remember why they came to this country in the first place. Each person has their own story to tell and reason for coming. That is what makes that person’s story so unique and is told for many years to come.
Immigration, sadly, is still an issue.
