Synthesis Essay On Indocumented Immigrants In The Us

1033 words - 5 pages

In my ENC 1101 class, we were required to go through several of processes to map out the formula of writing our final assignment in our class: a synthesis essay. The most imperative part of our assignment was to choose a synthesis essay question on a list that our professor gave us. The second most vital ingredient in the formula was to choose two texts from our Allyn & Bacon Guide to Writing book which would be the backbone of our synthesis essay that we would have to expand on and create our own ideas from. The question that I choose to further my vague knowledge on immigration was: "What should the United States do to make progress in solving the problem of undocumented immigration?"

Although both Williams and Hanson make valid points on the ongoing conflict on immigration, Hanson explains why immigrants flee their country, whereas Williams sees more of the political aspect of the issue. Seeing the many sides of the immigration conflict, I believe the Congress should allow undocumented immigrants to live in America, but they must show that they are an asset to America.
Despite the fact that Williams writes for a call to action for the resolution of immigration in the United States, his article is a blog article written for his blog followers. Williams' article is not intended for scholarly audiences, while Hanson's article is. Hanson's article is published on the History News Network, which requires great thought and reviewing, whereas Williams is just required to write an article and post on the Huffington Post in his profile, without an editor to review the contents of the article. Williams is free to voice his opinion in whichever language he desires due to it being a blog article, and Hanson is not. However, due to this being so, Hanson's article proves to more credible that Williams' article, especially due to the fact that Hanson is a military historian and political essayist. But, Williams' article provides pathos in his article by including a personal anecdote in the introduction of it. The anecdote transcends the article to his purpose of explaining the political part of the immigration issue, making his standpoint and call to action clear. But then again, Hanson writes with logos, making his readers look into his angle of vision, which creates the readers to create a more credible and fair opinion on immigration.
Nevertheless, both Williams and Hanson make valuable claims to support their perspective and knowledge on immigration. They both write clearly of their standpoints and provide examples to establish their points. Williams writes that because of 9/11, America has a prejudiced mindset towards immigration, and Hanson uses examples of immigration across the globe that illustrates how difficult it is to come with a solution to solve...
