He was also accused of putting the nation into debt and not managing the national budget very well. He reacted to these criticisms with the social security program heavier taxes on the wealthy, more government control over banks, and safety nets for the unemployed. This program is still majorly affecting America to this
For example, many people think that immigrants reduce the job opportunities and wages for the low skilled American citizens. In addition, they conclude that the people that arrive to the US illegally are not the best people from their country. When I read pro-immigrant arguments, I thought that immigrants are really important to this country; in fact, I agreed with Bernie with the idea that immigrant have a positive impact in the American economy; however, after I read the anti-immigration arguments, my thinking on this issue had changed a little bit in this way: immigration help in our economy in the way for consuming goods or services; however, sometimes they can reduce job opportunities for US
Many states, especially those with meager populations, actively pursued immigrants by offering jobs or land for farming. The industrialization lured millions seeking economic opportunities for their families, while were anxious to escape oppressive governments. Whatever the reason, with these groups came a rich culture that would forever help to reshape the nation. One of the most significant ways the immigrants altered the United States was the way in which they settled upon arrival. The majority of these new foreign immigrants settled or “clustered” in larger cities such as New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia.
In “Let at America be America Again”, also by Langston Hughes, there are the poor white, and the slave blacks, and the immigrants as well. They were taken advantage of simply because they were not famous nor white, therefor they had no access to the American dream. The citizens without high social status must work hard in order to survive and live a decent life. They must work long hours at a job that may not have been their dream. They must service the rich in order to keep those same jobs that they have because their American dream never came true.
In some people’s minds, they automatically assume yes, but in reality, it’s a no, immigrants tend to perform labor, and do minimal jobs that Americans don’t, and won't do, so they mistake that as immigrants taking ‘Americans job’, but it’s actually a missed opportunity. One reason for people not taking the jobs is because of the hours, the next reason is the pay might not satisfy a legal immigrant, and people born in America, another reason is it wouldn’t be able to support a regular American family, but they will be able to support an illegal immigrant. The downside is that the policymakers disagreement is the weak labor since the spread immigrants flow has made a dramatic change seeing that the H-B has issued down by twenty- five percent in 2010. The last reasoning is American people want to have a debate on if immigration is stealing American jobs, but according to evidence immigrants actually increases job opportunity and incomes of Americans. This is wise because even George G. Borjas’s long-run estimates suggest that immigrants raise the wages of people with high school diplomas.”- Newsweek, DON’T BLAME IMMIGRANTS FOR DRIVING DOWN WAGES.
Illegal Immigrants should not be able to stay in America. Due to financial, population and job reasons. Illegal immigrants should not be allowed to stay in the United States because the cost of them staying is way too high. Health care costs for illegal immigrants would add billions of dollars to America’s already heavy financial tab. Nobel prize winner and liberal economist Paul Krugman wrote a statement stating "Unfortunately, low-skill immigrants don't pay enough taxes to cover the cost of the benefits they receive.” That means American taxpayers must heavily subsidize the costs of services to newcomers.” What this means is that since immigrants pay little to no tax us American citizens
There are limitations for aid to services or vouchers in the welfare reform. However, the transfer of public assistance can “rob Peter to pay Paul” (Dr. Jerry Marx 2004). Meaning citizens of America are paying for low income families to make a living, and some of these families are taking an advantage of the welfare system so they don’t have to support themselves. As long as they make the requirements they’ll keep having kids and live on it rather than trying to make a living. This creates higher taxes for American citizens because so many families just repetitively use the program, instead of striving to be better.
For the economic impact of past immigration, the current Americans have basically reached a consensus that they have made a great contribution to the economic development of the United States. But for the new immigrants since 1965, there has been a mixed consideration, with supporters and opponents arguing and arguing. Nico(1994) summarized that, the American public opinion are generally opposed to immigrants, who believe that immigrants have had a negative effect on the American economy, particularly with the influx of less-skilled relatives of immigrants, refugees and illegal immigrants. There are also many scholars who hold the opposite view that immigration has not had a negative impact on the U.S. Economy. It was mentioned by Frank(1997), in a survey in 1995, 82 percent of social scientists believed that immigration was beneficial or slightly beneficial to U.S. economic growth.
America is filled with millions of immigrants that came to this country….either legal or illegal. As for those illegal immigrants, how are we going to deport over 12 million illegal immigrants? They are “stealing” millions of jobs from naturally born Americans but we never think about working harder to keep those jobs. Immigrants that move to this country of America, illegal or legal, helps this country’s economy stabilize with all the work they are doing to help build houses, trimming lawns in neighborhoods, plumbing, electricity….all the difficult jobs that help us, but Politicians continue to try and reform immigration instead of working with it. Donald Trump in the election has suggested a wall for the southern border of America as a promise
Fixing immigration in America In America the problem of immigration is shrouded by hate, distrust, and anger from the multitudes of races involved. In the last few decades this issue has become wide spread and very divisive. For registered immigrants and people born in America the influx of people allows for a fear of job loss or change of cultural identity. For the issue of immigration, the solution for both illegal and legal, will be to incorporate them as American citizens as well as increasing border security to ensure that this privilege is not abused. This will aid the issue by quickly allowing partial to full citizenship for all immigrants, allowing the government to keep track of all people in the country, and to reduce the fear and
