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 realization that no, whereas there is an immigration challenge, it's not rather a significant challenge. The particularly major problem is assimilation. – Samuel P. HuntingtonFrom its very beginnings, the USA has been an immigrant kingdom. it's been equipped at the shoulders of immigrants from each that you can think of a part of the realm and, as much as today, is being sustained by means of the ancestors of those immigrants. I hence trust Samuel Huntington that immigration itself can't be America’s challenge. even though, Huntington’s declare is still thatassimilation is the quite significant issue. What precisely is inaccurate with assimilation? Does the type of assimilation that we discover this day paintings in any respect? may still ethnic minorities and immigrants assimilate extra into mainstream American tradition or might that be damaging for them in a fashion that isn't tolerable? The latter often is the important query i'll be posing during this paper. at the one hand, one’s speedy response to this vital query will be a distinct ‘no, they need to no longer assimilate’. ‘No’because the time period ‘assimilation’ by some means contains destructive connotations of small-mindednessand nationalistic fervor, that one may be hesitant to help, ‘no’ since it turns out most unlikely to streamline people to slot a undeniable snapshot, and ‘no’ since it turns out illogical that immigrants must have to assimilate to whatever that's so diversified because the American tradition. nevertheless, today’s American society absolutely isn't really absolutely built-in. In such a lot of cases, socioeconomic, cultural, political, and linguistic gaps stretch the entire manner around the continent and disunite the USA. contemplating those risky gaps and carrying on with immigration, assimilation may perhaps good be a need to make sure the survival of yankee society and peaceable co-existence of all its participants. to unravel the puzzle of assimilation, it truly is first really helpful to explain the time period in a fashion that additional dialogue should be in keeping with the demonstrated definition. I then try and make clear the benefits and drawbacks of assimilation and, ultimately, come to a end approximately no matter if assimilation is the ‘final victory’ or the ‘road to nowhere’ for the US and its immigrants.
