Challenges Immigrants Face
By Cathy Pearl

1     Moving is not an easy thing to do. A person has to leave all of his or her friends and family behind. There are new schools and new towns. A lot of times, a family will move because an adult has a new job. It is a stressful but an exciting time, too. Now imagine you are moving to a new country. You don't know anyone there. No one in your family speaks the language well. When you get there, your parents will have to find a house, jobs, and learn to survive in what seems like a different world. These are some of the problems that immigrants to this country face every day.
2     Immigrants come to this country for a better life. For different reasons, immigrants are sure that things are better in this country. Many immigrants come to find work. There are many jobs in this country. But immigrants who don't speak English have a hard time doing many of them. Instead, they have to take jobs that don't pay as much money. This makes it very difficult for them to afford many of the things in this country that they hoped to have.
3     New immigrants can have a hard time finding health care. Many of them are working in low paying jobs. These jobs don't have health insurance. Families often do not have enough money to go to a doctor. Many of them don't know where to get help because they don't speak English. When they do go to a doctor, they can have trouble understanding what he or she is telling them. This can make it hard to follow instructions that the doctor gives them.
