Specific Problems, Issues, Policy Interventions/Implications (Current and Historical) That Have Had an Impact/Are Impacting Latino Communities in the US
So, as globalization re-distributes work and income throughout the world, citizens demand more protection from their governments. The question of “Who Rules?” remains critical for any social system, from the individual city to the global web.
This may be some cultural resistance without any fighting. Many Hispanics are deprived of the rights ensured by the government and state. Sometimes, they cannot even prove that. Moreover, many debates turn into fighting and even killing. What are the reasons? The first point that occurs to the mind is intolerance to other nations. In other words, people face the racism issue. The Latin nation simply wishes to get in touch with the people who lived on the territory since ancient times. The statistic shows that by the year 2050 one-third of the youth population (under 18 years) will be Latino children. This frightens many white Americans. They claim that due to the process of assimilation with Latino people, they will lose their cultural identity and the US nation will steadily lose its face and will forget the origins. Another reason is associated with the matter of the job. Latin people are so to speak more likely to agree on jobs that are disliked by Americans. Besides, they agree on worse conditions of their job contracts. They may choose a job that offers a bit lower salary. The employers welcome such workers because they can save heaps of money. As a result, many Americans lose their jobs or cannot find any (Barbara Schhneider, Sylvia Martinez, and Ann Ownes, 2006) .
For those who entered the United States illegally as adults, arguably the only sensible and humane solution is an earned legalization program. For example, migrants could accumulate points for learning English, taking civics courses, paying taxes, and having US citizen children. When a specified threshold number of points is reached, they would pay a fine and adjust their status to legal permanent resident. Abundant research has documented that harsher enforcement and rising deportation have not increased the rate of “self-deportation,” but instead have lowered the rate of return migration among the undocumented to record lows. A permanent undocumented population of 11 million can only bring a host of social and economic problems, ones that will worsen the longer an appropriate policy response is deferred.
