Immigration fraud, some call it. Immigration reform, others advocate for. Between the nostalgia and rhetoric, migrant families are facing an uphill battle of convincing American lawmakers about allowing them in. The dream of freedom has left many in utter disappointment.Apart from increased impoverish levels and population explosion, America is infested with the curse of racism, colonialism, and radicalism. The more migrants of different faiths, beliefs and ethnicities who have entered, the more they have been accused of posing security threats to the nation.This essay, "Why Do You Want to Come to America", examines the reasons why Muslim migrants are coming to America despite the Muslim ban, hate speech, propaganda, and government resistance.With the Muslim ban in place, deportation of illegals and profiling being applied aggressively toward anyone of foreign descent, the fundamental question in all of this should be: Is the promise of wealth worth the cost of losing your culture, kids, and livelihood?Reviewed by Robert A. Groves for Readers' Favorite Why Do You Want to Come to America? by Eric Reese is a contemporary essay aimed at the person who wants to migrate to America. Specifically, it is aimed at Muslims who want to migrate to the United States. The essay explores the subjects of money, freedom, marriage, education, religion, and refuge. Beginning with money, Reese portrays a grim and accurate portrait of the financial struggle which exists to realize the American dream once one has arrived in the nation. Unfortunately, that same grimness exists for some native-born Americans. While the author applauds the religious freedom which exists in America, he questions the limits of some other liberties which people think are freely available to all. It was quite interesting to read what Reese had to say about protest and the results from such action.However, the grimmest picture of all i 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Meza.

Hugh Riminton was a small-town New Zealand teenager with a possible drinking problem and a job cleaning rat cages at an animal lab when a chance meeting with a radio news director changed his life. The news man took a chance on him, and at 17 Riminton became a cadet reporter. On the strength of a two-line job ad in a Perth newspaper, he escaped to Australia. It was the time of Hawkie, Bondy and $40,000 houses. Within three years of getting his start in television, he scored one of the most prestigious and sought after jobs in Australian journalism - the role of London-based correspondent for the Nine Network. As a foreign correspondent, he travelled the world, reporting from Somalia, covering the IRA bombings, narrowly avoiding being murdered by a mob in Soweto; the Balkans were at war; the tanks were rumbling in the streets of Moscow. Back in South Africa he got a chance to see up close the genius and humanity of the great Nelson Mandela. And then the Rwandan genocide began, and Hugh was despatched to investigate - with former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser tagging along. As the French prepare to resume nuclear testing in the Pacific, Hugh flew to Tahiti to be caught in the middle of the protest riots. After a day of being teargassed and watching his hire car getting torched, evening fell with the capital Papeete in flames. His reporting won him a Logie Award. Over nearly 40 years, he has been shot at, blown up, threatened with deportation and thrown in jail. He has reported from nearly 50 countries, witnessed massacres in Africa, wars and conflicts on four continents, and every kind of natural disaster. He has also been a frontline witness to pivotal moments in Australian history, from the Port Arthur massacre to the political dramas of Canberra, receiving almost every major journalism award Australia has to offer. Minefields is Hugh's fascinating story of over 40 years on the front l 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hugh Riminton. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/haau/000050/bk_haau_000050_sample.mp3.

In February 1943 intermarried Germans gathered in Berlin's Rosenstrasse to protest the feared deportation of their Jewish spouses. This book examines the competing representations of the Rosenstrasse protest in contemporary Germany, demonstrating how cultural memories of this event are intertwined with each other and with concepts of identity. It analyses these shifting patterns of memory and what they reveal about the dynamics of the past-present relationship from the earliest post-unification period up to the present day. Interdisciplinary in its approach, the book provides insights into the historical debate surrounding the protest, accounts in popular history and biography, an analysis of von Trotta's 2003 film Rosenstraße , and an exploration of the multiple memorials to this historical event.The study reveals that the protest's remembrance is fraught with competing desires: to have a less encumbered engagement with this past and to retain a critical memory of the events that allows for a recognition of both heroism and accountability. It concludes that we are on the cusp of witnessing a new shift in remembering that reflects contemporary socio-political tensions with the resurgence of the far right, noting how this is already becoming visible in existing representations of the Rosenstrasse protest.
Schweizer Frauen engagierten sich während des Zweiten Weltkriegs auf unterschiedliche Weise im Bereich der Flüchtlingshilfe. Sie kümmerten sich um die Flüchtlinge in der Schweiz, sammelten Geld und Naturalien oder suchten Freiplätze in Familien. Im Zentrum stehen die Handlungsmöglichkeiten der Frauenorganisationen in ihrer Hilfe für die jüdischen Flüchtlinge - zwischen Protest gegen die restriktive Flüchtlingspolitik und loyaler Zusammenarbeit mit den Behörden.Mit dem Bekanntwerden der Verfolgung der Jüdinnen und Juden mussten die Frauenvereine einerseits eine Haltung zur restriktiven schweizerischen Flüchtlingspolitik entwickeln, andererseits wurden sie verstärkt auch im Ausland tätig. Das Schweizerische Rote Kreuz entsandte Fürsorgerinnen in französische Internierungslager, die dort direkt mit der Deportation ihrer Schützlinge konfrontiert wurden. Einige Frauen halfen Flüchtlingen über die Grenzen und machten sich dadurch strafbar. Das Buch gibt einen Einblick in die vielfältige Flüchtlingshilfe von Schweizer Frauen und thematisiert die Ambivalenz des Helfens im Rahmen der behördlichen Vorgaben.
This open access book deals with contestations "from below" of legal policies and implementation practices in asylum and deportation. Consequently, it covers three types of mobilization: solidarity protests against the deportation of refused asylum seekers, refugee activism campaigning for residence rights and inclusion, and restrictive protests against the reception of asylum seekers. By applying both a longitudinal analysis of protest events and a series of in-depth case studies in three immigration countries, this edited volume provides comparative insights into these three types of movement in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland over a time span of twenty-five years. Embedded in concepts of political change, limited state sovereignty, and migration control, the findings shed light on actors, repertoires, and the effects of protest activities. The contributions illustrate how local contexts, national political settings, issue specifics, and social ties lead to distinctly different forms of protest emergence, dynamics, and strategies. Additionally, they give a profound understanding of the mechanisms and constellations that contribute to protest success, both in terms of preventing deportations of individuals as well as changing policies. In sum, this book constitutes a major contribution to empirically informed theoretical reflections on collective contestation in the fields of refugee studies and social protest movements.
The World War II memoir, based on a Latvian girl's diaries, recounts experiences from her sunny childhood on the Baltic Sea to being catapulted into the turmoil of the Soviet and Nazi occupations. She is an eyewitness as people are deported in cattle cars to Siberia and Jewish children are marched to their graves by Hitler's SS men. Her childhood is engulfed in flames when her home and dreams turn to ashes and she becomes a refugee riding freight trains to Displaced Persons' camps in Austria. Disguised as gypsies, the family flees to the British Zone to escape deportation to Siberia. The unbiased account from a child's perspective relates how her family's faith, courage, love, and resiliency allows them to rise above despair, hunger, hard labor, and invading armies to start over again. With God as a traveling companion, their wanderings lead to a new homeland where new trials await. This is not the typical wartime story of bloodshed that leaves a damaged psyche. Though experiencing loss of home, friends and relatives, and the terror of bombings by three different military powers, the young refugee girl learns from her parents the difference between totalitarian regimes causing destruction in their quest for power and the innocent people engulfed in the melee regardless of their nationality. Living in trenches and caught in the line of fire by opposing armies brings realization that the young soldiers fighting each other on foreign soil are not born killers, but in their homeland are somebody's dear son, often willing to assist the civilians affected by the trauma of war. Armed with idealism that comes with youth and unaware of the threatening consequences of her actions, Skaidrite fights her own war against injustice by refusing to submit to the authority of her teachers when they issue orders contrary to her beliefs. On her way to school, the child within her is frightened when passing piles of human skulls unearthed during the construction of a bunker, but she is not afraid to tell her parents that a Soviet official has instructed her class to report if a parent says something against the government so that the parent could be properly 'educated'. Even a five-year-old could perceive the injustice of spying on her parents. When her class meets Hitler face to face during his whistle-stop visit in Austria, the young fighter for justice refuses to salute 'Heil Hitler' because his men killed Jewish children and he is not her Führer. Only a miracle saves her family from repercussions due to this protest. Skaidrite's private war comes to an end when she finds acceptance in the USA and at the University of Michigan.
