Americans Should Be Illegal

Good Essays
Illegal (entering into a country) has been a widely discussed topic in politics in the US. Some argue that people (who enter a country) are necessary as they take the jobs Americans do not wish to take, and that they therefore should be given permission to stay in the country. Others however, believe that they should be very badly punished seeing as what they are doing is illegal, arguing that the illegal people (who enter a country) are taking away jobs from Americans and not paying their taxes. Although there are arguments supporting the claim that (not having legal papers/not recorded anywhere) people (who enter a country) should be punished, there are many arguments (against something else) for why they should be allowed to stay.

One of the main arguments against illegal (entering into a country) is that there will be fewer jobs left for the Americans as they demand higher (moneys paid for working) compared to the illegal people (who enter a country) and it is only helpful for the companies, rather than the country as a whole. An argument (against something else) for this is that most of the illegal people (who enter a country) take the jobs Americans do not want. And although many Americans may be (without hope/very upset) for work after the major money-based problem, there are still many who do not want to do labour or low-paid jobs, such as working at a farm. Many illegal people (who enter a country) however, are happy as long as they find work. It is therefore necessary for them to be legalised so that there are enough people within these fields of work. Without the (all the workers in a company or country) of 'illegal ' workers, much of the American money-based life would suffer or come to a stop, because they are mainly located in huge numbers in just a few states, such as California, Texas, Florida and…show more content…
Another argument is that illegal people (who enter a country) have a negative effect on the (process of people making, selling, and buying things) as they do not pay taxes and take benefits they do not deserve. However, in a study done by the Institute of Taxation and Money-based Policy (ITEP), it was found that illegal people (who enter a country) do pay taxes, with a guess (of a number) of $10.6 billion in 2010, meaning they are paying an average of 6.4 per cent of their income. To compare they found that the top 1% paid 5.6% of their total income in taxes, this way (not having legal papers/not recorded anywhere) people (who enter a country) actually pay more in taxes compared with their income, than their similar person or thing. A third reason for legalising illegal people (who enter a country) is that everyone deserves equal rights as human beings. Many people move from their own country to the US because they look (for) better opportunities, freedom, and rights. An example is Mexicans, they account for more than half of the illegal people (who enter a country) in the US with some 6.1 million people. Almost half of Mexico 's population lives in poorness, which is one of the major factors for why Mexicans move, they wish to provide for their family and for some the only way to do that is by finding work in
