The recent attitudes towards immigrants, especially since the attacks of 9/11, have been dismal at best and aggressive at worst. Boushey and Luedtke argue that in the general public of the U.S., immigrants are perceived as potential threats to national security. However, studies show that the longer a culture is exposed to immigrants, the fear is reduced and a stable, accepting society will eventually be produced (Boushey & Luedtke, 396). Regardless of whether or not the threat of terrorism in the U.S. is actually rising, the public opinion of immigrants is forcing the state governments to become more involved in immigration policy.
Immigration Reform: Yes, or No Currently, there is constant dispute over the United States immigration system, pertaining to whether or not it should be reformed and if so how should it be done.

America needs immigrants because with immigrants we can create a stronger economy because they bring the skills that they have to create a better place.

Every year, millions of people are trafficked in countries around the world, including the United States.

The first debater is Steven Camarota. Camaroto’s view is that the “less-educated” Americans are losing their jobs to immigrants (Camarota). In his research, he argues that at the time his article was written compared to November 2007, there were more immigrants working than the natural born U.S. citizens. To prove his argument he lists studies done by other researchers that show how the employment of immigrants affected the inexperienced American born citizens, like citizens under the age of 29, less educated black men, as well as teenagers (Camarota). His outlook is that by not limiting immigration, it is directly affecting the American citizens who are poverty stricken due to their
