Why immigration reform matters This article comes out of The Washington Post , which usually produces articles that have a liberal bias. George Will wrote this opinion piece, he is known for having a conservative viewpoint in his writings. Throughout the article one can occasionally see Will’s conservative bias appearing with comments like “Obamacare’s manifold defects are obvious enough”. His targeted audience is clearly other conservatives which is odd given that he writes for a more liberal paper. His stance on the issue is different than what would be expected, rather arguing that the Republican Party should change its viewpoint on immigration to be more open. Will appeals to statistics to provide the support for his article, such as how long the average illegal immigrant has lived in the U.S. and how much the government has been spending on border patrol. He counters many arguments made by the Republican Party such as the argument that immigrants from the Americas are more resilient to assimilating to the U.S.’ culture. Will argues that most that most of the illegal immigrants that are in the U.S. have lived here for more than fifteen years, and that this has not had a negative impact on our culture at all.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
