Answer the question below. Your answer should be between four and five pages. An “A” paper can improve your grade by one letter grade, a “B” paper by one-half of a letter grade, and a “C” paper by about one-fourth.
Discuss the issue of immigration and its consequences. Specifically, 1) how many immigrants come to the U.S. each year and what countries do they come from, 2) why do they come to the U.S., 3) what cities do they settle in and where do they work, 4) are they a positive impact on the economy or a negative impact, and 5) are they a drain on public services like opponents of say. You should have at least 8 references.
Note on references. Legitimate reference resources include scholarly journals/articles, books, data cited from databases (i.e., U.S. Census), and government reports (i.e., United States General Accountability Office). You may include personal or telephone interviews with relevant stakeholders. Citations from Internet sources that are merely web pages constructed by individuals airing their personal views are unacceptable sources. However, legitimate websites accessing refereed academic journals/reports (i.e., articles published in The Urban Institute, Journal of Urban Affairs, etc.) are legitimate resources. One way to determine if a website is acceptable or not is to ask yourself, “If the Internet did not exist, would I be able to find this article in the university library?” Newspaper or magazine articles may be used for this assignment provided they are in-depth articles on the issue, and not just commentaries or editorials.
Please use American Psychological Association (APA) style guidelines to cite sources in body of your text, and to reference your sources in the bibliography.
