Pro-Immigration and Anti-Immigration

This website portrays immigration as economically and culturally beneficial for the nation of America. One of the goals of this website is to educate American citizens about the benefits of immigration. The website does this by providing information on immigration and how a supply of immigrants can help solve work shortages in certain regions and industries of America, therefore improving the economy all together. It shows a variety of worker shortages ranging from agricultural and labour intensive work to white collar shortages. The website also has a section where the latest immigration news is available. It is objective as there are negative stories surrounding immigration such as the amount of illegal immigrants there could potentially be and there are also positives of immigration which are mainly economic. Another aim of this website is to encourage individuals to explain the websites views to people they know in order to gain support from a number of communities.

When you visit this website one of the first things you notice is a banner that highlights the main aim and attitude of the site. It says ‘We hope you will join our fight AGAINST the costly and deadly illegal immigration & illegal immigrant invasion of America’. It seems that this is trying to create some sort of panic as it suggests that immigrants are ‘invading’ America. This website offers the public to have their say on a number of issues on an online forum, it allows for debates even though the website leans towards anti-immigration. There is a four point platform which shows the steps that this website feels is needed to help create a more secure America. ‘1. Secure Our Borders. 2. Crack down on employers that intentionally hire illegals. 3. Remove incentives and rewards to illegals such as licenses, welfare, and other taxpayer benefits. 4. Enforce our existing laws and deport illegal aliens when convicted of crimes or detected during routine law enforcement activities.'
