30 Days Immigration Essay
After watching the 30 Days Immigration, I would define it as a good reality show. Why I say that? It is because the videos were addressing the social issue—immigration just at a right point. The man who lived in the immigrant’s house was really surprised me since he was acting completely different from the beginning to the end of the video, either in his attitude or emotion. Recall my memory, he said he won’t let the illegal immigrants to get into the United States, and he insisted that the immigrants shouldn’t stay in America because it is not their place.
However, after he went to see what their original life in their hometown was, he was shocked. The living environment was really bad, and people just stayed in the “home” without the roof. Clear water was not very available. Later on, the daughter in the family got the admission from one of the universities in California, and the man was very happy as well as her.
In the reflection time, he said that illegal immigrants were hard to fight for the living in America, but education seems like the only chance for them to change their lives and to get rid of the poor.
Normally speaking, people would judge the lower-class people since they don’t understand one another and they don’t stand in their situation. At the end of the video, he was pretty sad for leaving the family. And he showed his sympathy to all the members of the family. He realized that his thought of rejecting immigrants is not correct, and obviously this is an unforgettable life-changing experience for him.
