The Land of Opportunity
From research proposal (to keep focused)
There should be laws and policies that allow people to come here and make them productive individuals that contribute to society. My initial thinking is that if there is a way to let people into this country, and they can benefit from what we have here, but not in their country, then we should let those people come here.
At this point, I can see myself arguing to let people into the country, but there must be arguments as to why this is such an issue for keeping people out of this country, I think the difficulty will be in deciding which side I am really for, to allow people into this country or to prevent entrance, and if I agree with the laws in place.

The United States has been referred to as The Land of Opportunity for many years. Because of this, people have wanted to come to the United States to visit, to live, to survive and to be happy and have a good life. There are many people each year however, who are prevented from accessing this great land, and are prohibited from staying here. These are the people who try to migrate into the United States, but do so illegally, and are then termed illegal immigrants. When these people are caught, they are deported back to their own countries, and not allowed to have the luxuries that someone who is naturally born into this country should have. There are several factors that go into immigration laws and policies, and that shape our country, among them for example family history, amount of population and contribution to the United States. These factors, among others are what make this nation what it is, or what it isn’t, and how those factors help to shape us are interesting points to ponder.
A person’s family, as it relates to the United States could be current or past history. America happens to be a country comprised mainly of immigrants, from the European countries, over to this land to formulate this country. For that reason, there are a lot of people who continued to migrate here, after their families came to this country, for whatever the reasons were. Some were forced to come here, and others chose to come here. The immigration laws and policies are clear when it comes to current residents of the United States. If you were born here, in the U.S., you are what are considered a U.S. Citizen, and none of the immigration laws and policies applies to you, as they would to foreign born people. However, there are others in your family who may have to apply to become U.S. Citizens. Your spouse or child, if born outside of the U.S. may become a citizen after a certain number of years of marriage or living in the U.S. through naturalization. There are ways of claiming and filing for citizenship if you have a parent that was born in the U.S. or if you are married to a U.S. Citizen. For married people, the laws states that you have to have been married for 3 years and prove that you have lived in the U.S. continuously for 18 months. In addition to this, you must be able to speak, read, and write in the English language, and you have to be able to state that you will uphold the constitution of the U.S. You must report all income on your taxes, and if you are a male between the ages of 18 to 26, you must register for the Selective Service, to fight for this country if there was ever a time that it would come to that. If all of these eligibility requirements were met, in some form or another that confirms to the criteria being met, then the laws would be in your favor for you becoming another U.S. citizen.
Being another U.S. Citizen is one of many people. In the U.S. as of 2013, there were 316 million people, of the 7 billion people on the planet. In 2012, there were approximately 41 million of those people who are immigrants into the U.S. This number represents about 13% of the total U.S. population that are immigrants.

The Ice AgeThe Ice Age Twenty thousand years ago during the time of the last ice age period, many colossal mammals roamed North America. They survived during the times when much of the earth was covered by immense large bodies of ice that buried forests, fields, and mountains, but rapidly became extinct after the ice began to retreat and melt. Since then the human race has introduced many different theories to explain the extinction of these large mammals. One theory stands above all and explains the truth
