There has been a frightening increase in illegal immigration in the U.S. The amount of illegal immigrants, in America, is a major concern to our citizens and government. About 11.7 million immigrants are living in the United States illegally and the numbers continue to climb, according to the Pew Research Center Hispanic Trends Project. In order to control this, greater measures must be taken to control the amount of illegal immigrants that enter the U.S. The existing immigration laws alone is not a good solution to refuse illegal immigration.
Deportation, displacement, eviction are all words that the eleven million illegal immigrants living in the U.S. dread to hear. The idea of being sent back to another country, away from everything they have worked so hard to get, away from their children, family and loved ones. These thoughts swirl in the minds of many illegal immigrants who fear that any day could be the day in which they are deported. The federal organization ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), deported over 250,000 illegal immigrants in 2016 alone and over 3 million in the past nine years (FY 2016). For many immigrants, becoming a U.S. citizen is not attainable due to the money and time, so the only option remaining is to flee and hide.
For the young and uneducated there is a competition with immigrants because they both have the same financial status and compete for the same jobs. The lower class of the United States if filled with immigrants but also contains natives who have not had such success financially and for them it is difficult to find a job and maintain it for the search for jobs is an issue in general in the U.S. When immigrants first entered the United States, Natives feared that immigrants would take their
They could state negative Impacts of immigrants, such as overpopulation, drug trafficking, increase multiculturalism, massive escalation in crime, among others, but otherwise there 's some positive benefits as Dave Reichert and John F. Kennedy states one day, that immigrants are necessary component of economic growth, they enriched and strengthened the fabric of American life, they take the most dangerous works and receive the less gain that any company can give. High rates of immigration are frequently accompanied by militant, and sometimes violent, calls for immigration restriction or deportation by nationalist groups. In the thesis will be explaining the main ideas of the topic. There 's many country 's that have already enacted laws design to make more difficult the life of undocumented immigrants.
The Problem with Illegal Immigration Illegal immigration has been a problem with the United States since the early 1900’s. With illegal immigration, people from all over the world come to the United States and try to bypass the citizenship. If they go through the process of citizenship, it could take up to a couple of years. Illegal Immigration makes it easier for migration and terrorism. The problem the Unites states have is the constant threat of terrorism.
As far of the pro-immigrations argue that the United States was founded by immigrants and that immigration and freedom is what makes the United States a great nation. In addition, immigrants have a huge impact in our economy, like Bernie Sanders stated at the NALEO conference ‘’ It is no great secret that across the United States undocumented workers perform a critical role in our economy.’’ (latintimes.com). Another argument that pro-immigrant have is that people move to this country seeking the American dream, to be able to provide better life and future for their family. In the other hand, the anti-immigrants believe that illegal immigrants hurt our country.

There is a problem that is very important to me and millions of illegal Immigrants across the country. The issue is the length and the expense it takes for an illegal immigrant to fix their legal statuses. There is a certain type of Visa which is called the U-Visa which is a type of Visa only people who have either been physically or mentally hurt by someone in the United States. This is important because if you detain an immigrant it cost money to keep him/her incarcerated, also if they can work legally then they can pay taxes making more money for the government. There are many families that have been separated because of deportation, in September of 2014 there were 5,100 children in foster care and it is predicted to rise by 15,000 in the
While I was speaking with my father about his ideas on immigration and deportation, he seemed very focused on addressing how much our society benefits from immigrants, both documented and undocumented. He explained how he views illegal immigrants working in our society as something positive that outweighs any drawbacks because of how large of a role they have within our economy. His point of view reminded me strongly of utilitarianism. Utilitarianism is an ethics theory that focuses on making decisions based on helping the greatest number of people. This theory
There are about eleven million unauthorized immigrants in the United states today. Illegal immigrants are a growing part of the labor force. A common argument is whether the Americans are taking jobs from Americans or if they are filling jobs Americans will not take. Unauthorized immigrants fill jobs Americans are not willing to take because Americans are too selective over the jobs they take and because farmers will not have enough workers to harvest fruits and vegetables.
