Immigration defines society. Immigration promotes the diversity of a nation and creates a diffusion of various cultures that break down barriers. But most of all, it serves as a factor in the fulfillment of dreams in countless lives. The current jargon used to identify immigrants is fueling discrimination in society. The term "illegal" causes individuals to impose labels on immigrants—labels that define immigrants as criminals. Part of being a human being means being able to understand and empathize with others. It does not mean resorting to acts of discrimination, racism, and violence. Current immigration policies and laws are not helping the cause for immigration reform. The dreams and goals of many individuals are at jeopardy, and many people are not aware of this. Finding a solution to these problems is impossible if individuals constantly place labels on one another. James Langston Hughes once said:
"Let America be America again. Let it be the dream it used to be. Let it be the pioneer of the plain, seeking a home where he himself is free." -James Langston Hughes
So, what would you do to make America the dream it used to be? We should unite and fight for the rights of individuals in this country. So, what would you do with the key that is in your possession? It's a small world, so why not unite and unlock the door to an ideal world?
