Many of us have never given a second thought to the security of our position as a person living in the United States.
But, as the Trump administration continues to roll out plans for their immigration agenda, we can see that people have given a lot of thought to the positions of the immigrants residing in the United States.
The most troubling concern is the continuous portrayal of immigrants as people who are dangerous, threatening and undeserving of being a resident in this country.
It is already extremely difficult to immigrate to the United States (or any other place for that matter), but inaccurate media depictions and the misuse of charged language encourages closed-mindedness to people who may need kindness the most, which is a distressing thought.
Furthermore, immigration is not a zero-sum game. When your neighbor flourishes, you also flourish, and when your community grows, so do you.
