Introduction and main part
Upon reading the statement it is possible to suppose that citizens believe there are several different causes of economic problems. For example, according to the survey of experts, more than sixty four percent of American citizens think that many economic problems are created by the government (Roboforex,2011,n.p.). However, some people think that economic problems are caused by migrants. In this case, they are made “scapegoats”for economic issue in the country.
In my hypothesis, scapegoats are refers to people who are assigned the blame or made to take the fall for something (Kernerman, 2014,n.p.).
This essay will be show the misunderstandings between Mexican immigrants and indigenous people of America, who believe that Mexicans takes jobs from Americans as well as smuggling some immigrants, which has affected the country's economy. Other people suggest that immigrants are not really to blame for these problems, however most information about these issues is written by indigenous people and not by migrants themselves.
Often indigenous inhabitants of the countries made migrants as scapegoats for the economic problems in the country. According to Lively (2013), “A lot of American citizens think that Mexican migrants are the important problem:”I hate these Mexicans,they are always coming here to America from Mexico and taking Americans jobs" said 55-year-old James Baldwin”. Citizens want to believe that it is because of the migrants the economy worsens, but they are just blaming others. Another fact confirming that migrants are scapegoats is contraband. Many people believe that it is due to smuggling economy is getting worse "smuggling of migrants is one of the main problems that worsen the country's economy. Illegal migrants work for a low illegal wages, without insurance and others, because of that they don't pay taxes”
