“ I speak not of myself but for those without voice.. Those who have fought for their rights.. Their rights to live in peace, their rights to be treated with dignity, their rights to equality of opportunity, their rights to be educated.” ~ Malala Yousafzai. Sometimes people judge others without knowing how they truly are. Just because of their looks, about what they have heard, or because of their race. Someone's race does not define who they are , what they do defines who they are.

A lot of people say it is because of drugs, or to take jobs , or to destroy American resources, but they…show more content…
Maybe they think that undocumented immigrants do not want none of that but to just cause a fiasco in the United States. But sadly they are wrong . The majority of undocumented immigrants come here for new opportunities for them and for their family, to find a job that will at least get them food on the table, and lastly for their children to get a good education so their children grow up to actually be someone they want to be in life ; something that some of them could not do . Many people flee the place where violence is all you see , where they can not feel secure in their own country , where each day is a struggle to survive because of health issues, no water or electricity , and starvation just for the protection of their family( thetimesnews.com).

And the economy would have not grown as much in the 1990’s without undocumented immigrants . Lastly home building would of been negatively affected, and unskilled jobs in the economy would of probably not been fulfilled at all ( thetimesnews.com)
