FC: Economics Current Events | By: Danielle Hayden Mr Blough
1: Illegal immigration from Mexico to the United States has always been an issue. But in recent years it has gone down dramatically because the conditions in Mexico have been improving and the wait has gone down for a vesa into the States. Even though the Roman Catholic Church is a huge part of their lives they are having fewer children as the years go by. Now it is not as difficult to get a working vesa to help provide for their families in Mexico. But as the Government realizes families who do come illegal are using government recourses to help them get along like welfare. And are doing their best to help them get back to Mexico and come back the legal way.
2: People who illegally immigrate to the United States affect our economy because they are undocumented and do not have to pay taxes which affect the over all economy. I think people who come illegally need to go back and come through properly.
5: San Diego Blackout 2011 September 8, 2011 on a hot Thursday afternoon the power went out. Not extremely unusual but as the minutes went by and the power remained off uneasiness set in. Using the Internet on phones people realized it wasn't just their town it was the entire county. Listening to radios in cars, solar powered, or hand cranked people realized no one really knew how long it might last. People rushed to the store trying to buy non perishables items. Some people panicked but with the help of reassurance that people are working on it and the power would be on no later than Friday afternoon people relaxed talked to people they would usually ignore and enjoyed the stars that they usually didn't noticed.
6: A protest called Occupy Wall Street has spread through out the nation due to the anger towards the financial communities success during a time of economic hard ship. There are up to 60 cities hosting their own protest. Liberals are hoping that it will become the rival of the Tea Party. The Tea Party was born from frustration towards the bailout of the financial sector in late 2008. | People who are protesting are not completely unified. They themselves cannot agree on why they are there. And though some that are there are fighting for what they belive in, most of them don't and need to go and get some jobs.
