Recent events cause a halt on America’s tradition as an immigrant nation seeing it as a source of trouble and concern for safety. Immigration is beneficial in many ways such as saving people from abusive homes in their countries and cheap labor. In several ways due to xenophobia immigration is dangerous because we never know what association they are acquainted with and over population can be harmful. Immigration is an issue that needs to be resolved “Close family members are going to try to come together, people whose skills are needed by the United States are going to try to get here, and some number of people fleeing persecution are going to try to get here. If we have laws that don't allow them to come here legally, we provide incentives for black market immigration” (Immigration Reform). Even though several people are afraid of foreigners, others are fond of them due to cheap labor or other times they are just regular people searching for a better life.
The way we interpret and view a person is very important because it may cause us to fear a person and become irrational. For Americans the definition of xenophobia mostly relates to certain religions, especially Middle Eastern people, causing us to make tough decisions in regards to culture, society and immigration.
