Abstract Free trade may well increase immigration from Mexico to the United States before ultimately slowing it down. Rapid population growth, unemployment or underemployment of half the labor force, and vast ethnic and kinship links to the United States have given Mexican migration a stubborn momentum. Increased prosperity from free trade will give many would-be migrants the means to resettle in the U. S. Foreign competition will displace Mexican workers in small farms, state-owned enterprises, and less competitive industries, forcing some to migrate. The noneconomic incentives and expectations driving migration will also remain strong. Mexicans may see free trade as making the border a mere formality or as conferring an entitlement to live in the United States. On the U. S. side, free trade may well deepen the government’s traditional complacency about border controls. Over the long-term, however, a successful free trade agreement could reduce immigration by improving Mexico’s democracy and the quality of life, diminishing the prospects of mass asylum movements from Mexico, creating a better climate for effective family planning, and luring marginal, immigration-magnet industries from the U. S. to Mexico. In the United States, less- skilled American workers in some industries and regions can expect job displacement and other disruptions from free trade. Particularly vulnerable will be workers in perishable crop agriculture, border retail trade, construction, apparel, and light manufacturing such as furniture, auto parts and glass. Continued heavy immigration of Mexican and other foreign workers into those industries and communities will further impede the adjustment of resident workers by competing for jobs and consuming public resources needed for retraining and job search. To ease the adjustment of displaced workers, the U. S. must make Mexico’s cooperation in restraining immigration a condition for free trade. Mexico’s cooperation should include enforcement of its own laws against clandestine border crossing; action against alien smugglers, document forgers and transiting illegal aliens from Central America; and curbs on the reentry of aliens deported from the United States. U.S. initiatives that would cushion vulnerable American workers against the added disruption of immigration would be: better identification and screening of applicants for public assistance; tightened enforcement of safety and labor standards in immigrant-impacted firms and provision of legal workers to such firms; protection of public assistance resources through better screening and identification of applicants; and curbs on imports of temporary foreign workers for firms that will now have access to Mexican labor in Mexico. Finally, the United States must consistently press Mexico for higher safety, environmental and labor standards at the workplace to improve the job satisfaction and quality of life of working Mexicans who might otherwise migrate, as well as to narrow Mexico’s labor cost advantages over the United States.
The last sentence was worth reading.
this is my civics term paper .
i spent 10hours for this. i don’t really care if it’s not smooth
I don’t speak English
so yeah… plez check the grammar .
Zacaria Moussaoui was a member of al Qaeda. He was a terrorist who involved in plans of 9/11. First he admitted that he was involved with al Qaeda, but claimed he was not involved in the 9/11 attacks. But later he admitted that he knew about the 9/11 attacks and did nothing to stop them. He wanted to die so he could become a martyr. But the jurors rejected it. Finally he sentenced to life in prison.
Moussaoui was born in France of Moroccan and speaks 4 different languages. In 1992 He moved to London to improve his English speaking skills and also went to college there. While he was there, he discovered Islamic extremism. He came to the U.S in 2001, and enrolled in a flight school in Oklahoma. He dropped out before his graduation and went to an al Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan. His visa expired in May, so he was held at a local jail.
On August 16, 2001, Moussaoui was arrested by Harry Samit of the FBI and INS agents in Minnesota. Because he was charged with an immigration violation. 1 month later he was moved from Minnesota to New York, where he is held as a material witness. On December 11, 2001, Moussaoui was indicted by a federal grand jury in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia on 6 felony charges which are related to the 9/11 attacks. On March 27, 2006, Moussaoui testified that he and Richard Reid had planned to crash a hijacked airplane into the White House in the 9/11 attacks. But it was too late. It was after he lied and 3000 people died.
Moussaoui didn’t even warn anybody about the attacks after he was arrested in August.The Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal.So Moussaoui sent Judge Brinkema a letter saying that he wanted to plead guilty. The judge found him mentally competent and accepted his plea. On February 6, 2006 Jury selection begun in the trial to determine Moussaoui’s sentence life or death.So finally on april 3, 2006 they found that Moussaoui’s lying to federal agents was responsible for deaths on 9/11 and he was found eligible for Death Penalty. But about 1 month later jurors rejected to agree on a sentence of death .Here’s the reanson of why they thought he should get a life in prison: During the trial, judge said ‘Mr. Moussaoui,you came here to be a martyr in a great big bang of glory.But to paraphrase the pet T.S.Eliot,instead you will die with a whimper.’ When he tried to interrupt,the judge said ‘You will never get a chance to speak again and that’s an appropriate ending’.After being sentenced to life in prison, Moussaoui clapped and claimed “ America, you lost, I won” .
why is this case famous? Because 9/11 is one of the biggest terrorist attacks. Everybody knows about it . It destroyed World Trade Center buildings and many people’s heart. We could have saved their lives if Moussaoui didn’t lie. It wouldn’t happen if he warned sombody about the attacks. He didn’t even say he was sorry. He did it for himself. He wanted to be honored as a hero. But he got what he deserved. he senteced to life in prison and live in shame for the rest of his life. If they had killed him, he wouldn’t have the feeling that he had failed. Life in prison will be really tough for him. Imagine a life without any joy. now he has to live with himself. I mean honestly something is wrong with his brain. wtf was he thinking? Is he insane or retarded? The reason of why he lied is just because he wanted his plan would be successful? So he could be a hero? It’s ridiculous. Someday he may regret his horrible mistake and cry, “ Oh my gosh. What the hell have i done? ”
thanks smiley =]

Moussaoui’s betrayal to the FBI was an incredibly selfish act. He foolishly believed that the execution of 9/11 would result in him being viewed as a ‘hero’ amongst his people.

I am thinking about getting started in event planning and I am looking for some trade magazines or sites?
I have so far found the following:
Special Events Magazine

Instead of magazines, try some books I went to amazon.com and found a few I may buy good luck
What should I do about my career preparation dilemma?
My life has revolved around preparing myself for success and recently I’ve realized that where I’m headed with my life isn’t really where I want to end up. I was trading my passions and loves, just so that I could have a stable source of income in the long run. I am currently a senior in high school and I’m well on my way to making that huge life changing decision of which college to go to or which passion to pursue. However, all my efforts have been focused on majoring in exercise science and getting scholarship money through softball and my academics. I just realized this was completely settling so that I could be successful rather than follow my true passion.
My true passion happens to be music, and I plan on pursuing that at some point in the future. Problem is that I was planning on pursuing that after college, and I fear that I will be trapped in my intended major and trying to make the money back that I lost due to college expenses. I don’t want to get caught up in all of that nonsense and miss out on some true opportunities within my passion.
So I have a few options at the moment.
I could just go through with my plans and go to college for exercise science. This choice would ensure me some sort of stability or direction when it comes to financial security. However, as I stated before, it’s not my true passion.
I could also just drop out now and pursue my music career while having a few part time jobs to support my dream.
I could finish high school, but then move my sights to music and never pursue college at all.
I could also pursue a trade career, such as becoming a mechanic while also pursuing my love for music. (My grandfather happens to be a mechanic and I’m sure he would help to train me well.) This option would require less schooling and money and allow me to have a stable job and pursue my passion.
So. What do you think I should do?
Do you have to major in exercise science? You would have a better chance of landing a good job if you chose a major in business. You could also minor in music (do a lot of study in the off season of softball). I wouldn’t put all of my eggs in one basket. With the way the economy is, some people are having to make career changes. You can’t make it for life on music, unless you teach. That can be unstable, too.
My true passion was radio broadcasting. I spent 16 years in the field (graduated college in 2000) and then was laid off in 2009. I had to do some pretty hard thinking and planning for the rest of my life. I am finishing up study in Audiology and will be testing patients’ hearing in January of 2012.
You have to think about two different things– following your mind and following your heart. Sometimes when you follow your heart, you have to live on $40 for two weeks (I did this while pursuing radio). You have the perfect opportunity to explore and open your focus, right now. You don’t know how many times I’ve kicked myself, saying I should have gotten a business degree.
need careers advice desperately :(?
Hi everyone im 18 years old just finished a 2 year course at college this summer after leaving school at 16. I did a media course which i thought i would be interested in, but after 2 years all it has made me realise is that i dont really want a career in it. I just left a part time job at WHSmiths because i was extremely unhappy there but now it has hit me that im sat at home each day with no real direction with what i want to do. Im not the type of person that plans years in advance i just like to live for the moment, but that does not mean i dont want to be successful one day.
I made the decision not to apply for university as i didnt feel passionate about carrying on with a media based course. Now that plenty of my friends have gone off to various universities i feel lost and like im just waiting for an idea to pop into my head. I am a very firm beleiver that if your not happy doing something, then do not do it. Which is why i chose not to get thousands of pounds in university debts for something that i dont feel is in my heart.
I feel like a jack of all trades, but master of none. i have no particular skill or talent, but i have always been very entrepreneurial and did do well at business studies in school. For example i have been trading on ebay since the age of 12 and always used to look for ways to make extra money as a kid, it really excited me.
I am aware i can only really help myself find out what i want to do, but has anybody else felt a bit lost with what they REALLY want from life?
Thanks for reading
i used to use my mums bank details on my email address. why would i lie about such a thing? thanks for the advice…tard
You need a bank account to register on Ebay, this is so Ebay can deduct sellers fees. How does a 12 year old have a bank account?
Bad move to give up your part time job really the way the UK economy is headed. I live in Ireland and our economy is down the pan and yours is heading that way fast. The Tories will stop all benefits if they have a chance.
Just don’t give up is all I can say, try to stop putting obstacles in your way, lots of people graduate and yes they have thousands of pounds of debts but you don’t have to start paying it back until you earn above a certain income if I remember rightly? Maybe you could find something that you do feel passionately about? Australia and Canada are crying out for young people with entrepreneurial skills.
You have your whole life ahead of you, stay positive.
