Seminar paper from the yr 2006 within the topic American stories - tradition and utilized Geography, grade: 1,3, , language: English, summary: yet then I got here to the belief that no, whereas there's an immigration challenge, it's not particularly a major challenge. The quite significant issue is assimilation. – Samuel P. HuntingtonFrom its very beginnings, the U.S. has been an immigrant kingdom. it's been outfitted at the shoulders of immigrants from each that you can think of a part of the area and, as much as at the present time, is being sustained via the ancestors of those immigrants. I hence believe Samuel Huntington that immigration itself can't be America’s challenge. even if, Huntington’s declare continues to be thatassimilation is the quite significant issue. What precisely is inaccurate with assimilation? Does the type of assimilation that we discover at the present time paintings in any respect? may still ethnic minorities and immigrants assimilate extra into mainstream American tradition or could that be damaging for them in a manner that isn't tolerable? The latter would be the relevant query i'll be posing during this paper. at the one hand, one’s speedy response to this important query could be a distinct ‘no, they need to no longer assimilate’. ‘No’because the time period ‘assimilation’ by some means includes destructive connotations of small-mindednessand nationalistic fervor, that one will be hesitant to aid, ‘no’ since it turns out most unlikely to streamline people to slot a definite snapshot, and ‘no’ since it turns out illogical that immigrants must have to assimilate to whatever that's so diversified because the American tradition. however, today’s American society definitely isn't totally built-in. In such a lot of situations, socioeconomic, cultural, political, and linguistic gaps stretch all of the method around the continent and disunite the US. contemplating those harmful gaps and carrying on with immigration, assimilation could good be a need to make sure the survival of yankee society and peaceable co-existence of all its individuals. to resolve the puzzle of assimilation, it really is first really helpful to explain the time period in a fashion that additional dialogue might be in accordance with the confirmed definition. I then try and make clear the benefits and downsides of assimilation and, ultimately, come to a end approximately no matter if assimilation is the ‘final victory’ or the ‘road to nowhere’ for the United States and its immigrants.
