English 103 Winter 2013 Thesis/Claim Assumptions Facts and opinions Logos, Pathos, Ethos Induction or Deduction Counterargument/Claim Tone Conclusion: Is the argument convincing and compelling Works Cited "Latinos need immigration reform, not cumbs" "Latinos and their allies in the Democratic Party should work together to impose the terms of the national debate on immigration reform." -Ackerman * Latinos
* Undocumented People
* US Citizens * That ALL Latinos are in favor of a comprehensive immigration reform
* All undocumented people are Latinos
*All democrats support a comprehensive immigration reform
* All Latinos are and/or vote Democrat The author provides many facts and statistics of the current state of our immigration system. He relies on these facts to show that we indeed have a faulty system.
He also gives his opinion on what needs to be done to fix it. " Instead of waiting for the politicians in Washington to hammer out a new bipartisan coalition behind closed doors, Latinos should reach out to each other, organize and construct a new society-based coalition that has the power to literally change the face of the United States." * contemplative
* Persuasive http://articles.latimes.com/2012/nov/20/opinion/la-oe-ackerman-obama-latinos-20121120 Facts and Opinions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 9. 10. 11. Counterargument or Claim 8. The article is comprised of many facts that demonstrate the flawed current immigration
system. The author also provides his personal opinions on how this can be fixed
* "Latinos should accept neither Democratic backpedaling nor a new Republican ploy, but push for more comprehensive and inclusionary solutions." Logical Appeal: We can see facts that demonstrate how the problem could be solved but has not yet been fully addressed.
* "But the record speaks for itself. During the fall of 2010, the final months of a Democratic-led Congress, the president had a golden opportunity to push through key legislation."
Emotional Appeal: The author touches on the Latino reader's feelings by mentioning how many times they have been let down and also by how much the Republican views will not likely help.
* "Obama has also violated the trust of the Latino population by deporting undocumented immigrants at a frenzied pace."
* "The pandering worked. Latinos have demonstrated that their fear of the Republicans, and in particular of the tea party, is so high that they will vote for the Democrats almost regardless of their policies. Obama can continue to offer nothing more than crumbs to Latinos, sure of their support for his party in the next election."
Ethical Appeal: Ackerman demonstrates how the problem continues to grow despite the new face that holds power.
* "In fact, Obama's deportation rate is 1.5 times higher than that of George W. Bush, even though Bush was president in the midst of an unprecedented groundswell of illegal immigration." Ackerman, John M. "Latinos need immigration reform, not crumbs." The Los Angeles Times 20 Nov. 2012: Op-Ed LATimes.com 11 Jan. 2012. This article was indeed convincing and compelling due to how the author used the information of our current immigration system to push Latinos to take much needed action.
* "Instead of waiting for the politicians in Washington to hammer out a new bipartisan coalition behind closed doors, Latinos should reach out to each other, organize and construct a new society-based coalition that has the power to literally change the face of the United States." The article relies on both deductive and inductive reasoning. Deductive because of all the facts, statistics, and solid proof that is used to explain the problem. Inductive because of the author's observations in how things can be fixed and on who is mostly affected. This article focuses on the Latino-Democtatic way to join forces and solve the immigration problem. However, midway it gives an example of how the "Achieve Act" and other similar proposals have been brought up by Republicans as a way to solve the immigration issue. This of course will go back to the bread crumb idea that he is talking about and how Latinos must not conform.
