Immigrant Awareness Campaigns Across the Pond
Our cousins across the pond also faces serious immigration concerns. Therefore, these immigrant awareness posters are made.
The recession-stricken English constituency also holds similar fear that immigrants would take away jobs and lower their quality of life. In addition, the sentiments against European Union has also been fomenting. Some British citizens want to withdraw from the European union. In the upcoming general election, both immigration and European Union issue will determine the tone of the debate. Ultimately, theses two issues point to the perplexity over British identity. Can the British be European and British at the same time? Likewise, can the immigrants be British as well? The rational answers to both questions are yes, but helps are needed.
The three posters are meant to help disarm some unfounded stereotypes against the immigrants. These immigrants look ordinary, yet professional. Their profession is not necessarily fancy, but respectable. The pursuit of happiness appears to have weathered them, yet, they appear joyful and optimistic. Most importantly, they appear ready to serve all citizens of the United Kingdom, just like the best of the British. This posture, primes a crucial message, these immigrants are as British as what voters expect.
A more sarcastic episode of immigrant awareness is the duel challenge: Prince Zylinski of Poland v. Nigel Farage of Ukip. Mr. Farage blamed immigrants for London’s traffic. Prince Zylinski simply stated that enough is enough, especially for the Polish people. Prince issued two challenges, sword fight or word fight. So far, more than 80% of Telegraph online readers thought Prince Zylinski would win the duel, either way.
Life is hard for immigrants everywhere, there or here. Life is also difficult for the native-born, there and here. Bottom line is the same in both countries. Sound immigration reform benefits the native-born the most. Few politicians, American or British, have yet the courage to stand for the truth. Enjoy Prince Zylinski’s spirit of courage and
