QUESTIONS 20 25 (SHORT PARAGRAPHS)

QUESTION 21

Short Answer: Responses should be between 4-5 Complete Sentences

In Gomberg-Munoz' ethnography, she describes how undocumented immigrants are often characterized as "hard workers" by restaurant management. What are the advantages and disadvantages of the "hard worker" stereotype that Gomberg-Munoz outlines in the book?

Answer: An advantage of being a hard worker is that the undocumented immigrant is entitled to more jobs posts as the employers believe they will work harder than the documented people will. The disadvantage of being a hard worker is that the natives and documented people see the undocumented worker as a threat to their work posts, which prompts discrimination against them. Another disadvantage is that the undocumented immigrants are exploited for their hard work through low wages and salaries, poor working conditions and unfair treatment compared to documented workers hence not compensated for their hard work as they cannot confront their employees because they fear being reported to be undocumented.

QUESTION 22

Short Answer: Responses should be between 4-5 Complete Sentences

Drawing from our first week's readings, what is the American Dream? How do the DREAMers use the narrative of the American Dream to advocate for a path to citizenship?

Answer: The American Dream is a dream where everyone in America is free to exploit their capabilities without any restrictions or discrimination. James Truslow writes The American Dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. DREAMERS use this narrative to advocate for citizenship, as it is through citizenship that they can access all resources, especially government services to exploit their capabilities to achieve what they dream. Through citizenship the dreamers can then live the American Dream as they are not discriminated because of not being citizens and presented a fair chance to do what they can with their abilities and resources.

QUESTION 23

Short Answer: Responses should be between 4-5 Complete Sentences

What is the Liberal Paradox? Draw from the readings to briefly describe this concept in your own words.

Answer: Liberal Paradox is a situation dilemma that results from the need to engage in a free global economy which involves the free flow of goods, services and people which creates a threat to the political system and sovereignty of a state. States are trapped in a "liberal" paradox - in order to maintain a competitive advantage, they must keep their economies and societies open to trade, investment, and migration. But unlike goods, capital, and services, the movement of people involves greater political risks (Hollifield, 2008). The free flow of goods and people over out and into countries poses a threat to the meaning of borders and citizenship is also affected as people are not bound to one country. International organizations that enable access to global economy policies dictate the government on its decisions such as the control over flow of people in their countries, which threatens sovereignty, the independent control of the country by the government. The country is thus, torn between the benefits of globalized economy and the political risks involved in allowing free flow of goods people.

QUESTION 24

Short Answer: Responses should be between 3-5 Complete Sentences

Readings and media in this course have revealed certain tensions and differing perspectives between 1st generation immigrants and their 2nd generation children. Draw from either The Joy Luck Club or Klein's "Turban Narratives" to discuss how cultural belonging differs between 1st and 2nd generation immigrants.

Answer:

The 1st generation immigrants have different perspectives with the 2nd generation immigrants on the concerns and understanding of the culture of their communities. In the Turban narratives for example, the 1st generation have a deeper meaning of their culture on the wearing of turbans that they believe represents their heritage of the Sikhs fight for their religion that even spread to the death of their leaders. The 2nd generation immigrants, on the other hand, view the wearing of turbans as part of their religion, without the consideration of the deeper meaning of the turbans. This shows how some aspects of culture and history are different between the 1st and 2nd generation immigrants as the latter have a lower perspective and knowledge of their cultures.
