Southern New Hampshire University This issue has been identified before, mainly by charities and those working the “front lines,” so to speak, the people working in human services and immigration trying to help those who wish to move to the United States from another country.

While many still try to advocate for immigrant rights and the creation and funding of more sanctuary cities, I feel it’s been somewhat unsuccessful due to the current vilification of immigrants and the horrible conditions at detention centers. Tyler (2019) states that, “Human Rights Watch, working with the American Civil Liberties Union, Detention Watch Network, and the National Immigrant Justice Center, asked independent medical experts to review 15 recent cases in which ICE had released death reviews. These experts found that in eight cases, or over half, subpar medical care contributed or led to the fatalities. Looking at all 52 cases for which we have independent medical analysis since 2010, experts found inadequate care contributed or led to 23 deaths.” Setting up more sanctuary cities or safe centers with federal funding instead of ICE detention centers would be the best attempt at trying to help immigrants rather than punish them for trying to live in the US.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
