Michael Held- Instructor English 102 July 14, 2018 Annotated Bibliography: Immigration Bennhold, K., and M. Eddy. “Merkel, to Survive, Agrees to Border Camps for Migrants.” New York Times , 2 July 2018, - merkel-migration-coalition.html. Accessed 12 July 2018. Katrin Bennhold’s and Melisa Eddy's article describes the political troubles that followed after Angela Merkel’s implementation of her pro-immigrant policies. In 2015, the Germany Chancellor welcomed more than a million immigrants in the country and lobbied for a collective European stand on the subject. Many Germans supported and praised her decision at a time that most of Europe was turning away immigrants. Nevertheless, a series of events have conspired to turn public sentiments against her and her immigration policy. Recently, the nation has reported high incidences of crimes, such as assault, murder, and terrorism, which have been attributed to immigrants. As a result, Angela Merkel has lost significant political capital to those who support nationalism and strict immigration policies. The article provides that the intense political pressure has forced Angela Merkel to consent to the building of border camps and closure of the country’s borders. The article is important because it states that immigration is not just a social and legal matter, but also a political issue. As a result, politics informs the immigration policies of many countries in the developed world, including the United States.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
