animals. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed a lawsuit against SeaWorld
last year on behalf of five orcas. PETA asserted that Sea World had violated the
Thirteenth Amendment's prohibitions against slavery and involuntary servitude by
capturing the plaintiffs, keeping them in horrifyingly unnatural conditions, and making
them perform tricks on them. However, due to the fact that the Thirteenth Amendment
only applies to humans, the court concluded that the killer whales lacked the legal
authority to sue. If it was my dog and my dog would be getting treated like how Seaworld
has been treating the whales, I would be angry.
SeaWorld of Florida, operates an amusement park in Orlando, Florida, that is intended to
engage and teach paying clients by showing and concentrating on marine creatures.
Dawn Brancheau, a SeaWorld trainer with 15 years of experience, was interacting with
Tilikum, an orca, in a pool during a performance in front of an audience when the killer
whale grabbed her and refused to let go. She drowned after suffering severe injuries. A
customer had recorded the performance on video. Although Brancheau was the only
SeaWorld employee to be killed by an animal, Tilikum was responsible for three deaths
over a 30-year period. Trainers' interactions with killer whales are not subject to any
specific duty standards. SeaWorld received citations from Secretary of Labor Tom Perez
for violating the Occupational Safety and Health Act's general duty clause by exposing
animal trainers to the known risk of injury or drowning while working with killer whales
during performances and training. The secretary ruled that SeaWorld had broken the
general duty standard, imposed a $12,000 fine, and ruled that trainers should not be
allowed to touch killer whales unless they are protected by decking or physical barriers.
SeaWorld requested a review. SeaWorld's request for a review was denied by the U.S.
court of appeals.
The growth rate of unemployment in the United States is positively impacted by
immigration, but the effect is statistically insignificant. What's more, the outcomes
uncover a positive however measurably unimportant effect of migration on the
compensation development rate in the US. I believe the US permit should open borders
because we can reduce or eliminate the ICE, Border Patrol, and immigration police forces
by opening our borders. The primary reason we should adopt open borders is that it will
increase workers' power over their employers, but only if native-born Americans support
immigrants. Unless they meet very specific criteria, it is against U.S. immigration law for
anyone in the world to travel or immigrate to the United States. This is not equal
protection of the laws because others are getting tested and getting vaccinated to stay safe
but immigrants are not. Meaning they are keeping them safe and healthy. Which is unfair.
There are numerous legal, economic, and ethical considerations involved in the
complicated issue of undocumented immigration and access to government services. It
ultimately depends on legislators and policymakers to conclude how best to move toward
this issue while adjusting the necessities of the two residents and undocumented workers.
