In the United States, the country of individual entrepreneurship, wealth became achievable for millions, the dream, ceasing to be an abstraction, turned into a vital goal and epicenter of public interests. The term American Dream appeared in 1931, in the book of historian James Truslow Adams American Epic, where the author traced the transformation of the American Idea from the foundation of the New World.
The American idea was originally a religious idea. English Protestants, who arrived in 1620 on a new continent, did not dream of wealth, their goal was to build the Kingdom of God on earth, where a person would direct all the forces to the flowering of his spirit.
The US does not cope with the flow of migrants that come from Central America looking for American dream. The US President Barack Obama said that this caused an acute humanitarian problem describing the situation that has developed at the border with Mexico as a result of the massive migration of migrants from Central America. The President asked Congress to urgently allocate three billion seven hundred million dollars to finance measures to accommodate, maintain, and handle the cases of tens of thousands of people who illegally crossed the border of the United States striving for a better life.
Although the understanding of a better life differs from person to person, and there is no exact definition of the American dream, flows of immigrants rush to the USA searching for it. However, not everybody for various reasons manage to obtain an immigration status in order to legally live and work as a permanent resident. But this does not stop the dreamers. Someone enters the country illegally crossing the border, someone enters with the current visa and remains for an indefinite period, thus replenishing the ranks of illegal immigrants.
Illegals have occupied their niche in the American economy, performing the role of a kind of anti-crisis pillow for small and medium-sized businesses in the United States. Working without social security number, they agree to a reduced cash payment, unsatisfactory working conditions, and lack of social security. In general, illegal immigrants work on farms, in construction, and restaurant business. They often occupy vacancies that do not attract Americans. According to the estimates of the research centers, about 8 out of 11 million illegal immigrants are involved in the economy as a labor force. Each of them has its own story and its own, but very American dream.
