Is anti Immigrant Sentiment growing in west?
Immigration has been one of the many significant reasons of sudden rise in one country’s population. According to statistics most of the immigrants came from the east side of the world. Individuals, families take part in the immigration process which provided a large number of immigrants running into a certain place.
Whether they are small in number, or large, immigrants make a big difference in population number because it makes one country fewer and making the other bigger.
Immigration started long time ago where civilization made a huge difference between the two dividing areas (east and the west). Reasons that made them migrate have something to do with financial difficulty. It’s a demonstrated truth that west is richer than the east. Western government can provide better job opportunities, more adequate health services and more affordable living supplies.
As what other people label it, “the greener pasture”. For a long time, east has been looking at the west as the better place to go, better place to build your future upon because as of the moment, they are providing the best security there is.
Crime Rate surged with Immigrants
Yet, with so much number of immigrants, did not only cause the population to increase but led to some many unfortunate events. Crime increased in the area, conflicts are arising between different races due to some clash of interest, there is increased use of scarce resources and according to westerners, and immigrants isolate themselves in their own communities and refuse to learn the local language.
Immigrants snatching the jobs, especially in today’s recession days
An eastern individual will try to make an answer for that by saying; the jobs that they are taking are low paying jobs. Jobs that normally a westerner does not want to do. For using the scarce resources, they even admit that sometimes they are ineligible to receive such assistance. They find themselves distant from receiving what is due to them. They too pay exact taxes as other westerners do and so should be eligible for services.
Is anti Immigrant Sentiment Growing?
Now the question will lead us back to whether that anti-immigrant sentiment is growing? And the answer is yes. Westerners are starting to close out immigrants because they don’t want Asian people to take over what is theirs. Culturally, they want to maintain the pattern they used to have. Due to the high number of immigrants, instead of having their own cultures maintained, tendency is, they will be receiving influences from the outside. Politically, according to them, immigrants can threaten national unity as the immigrants will be demanding a big slice in decision making later on.
And so to conclude, anti-immigration is now at hand in the west, and is growing fast to some countries. Is it good news or a bad news? That remains to be a big question for now.
