Cesar Millan and “Anna” are two people that struck my sight on illegal immigration, this helped me see in other people’s eyes on what they had to go through to get here and to do what they had to do that could get them killed. Their stories and their connections I wrote in three main categories that I saw with illegal immigration to: Pathways to citizenship, Health care and, Family. Cesar Millan pathway to citizenship, some people say that he just “jumped over the border” but he couldn’t just do that, he is someone that turned from the negatives from coming to the U.S. and made a positive comeback using resiliency.
David Beacon, argues that the displacement of immigrants is a direct cause of economic disturbances in their home countries that leads to high levels of poverty, which leaves these migrants no choice but to migrate to work for cheap labor (Beacon ---:73).

Sam Ferguson and George Lakoff discuss in “The Framing of Immigration” that the way in which immigration is debated “impoverishes the conversation” (15). Through the use of illustrative and hypothetical examples, linguistic definitions and historical evidence derived from legislative actions, the main claim is reached. The main claim that is developed is, that the linguistics, also known as framing, used to describe immigration often narrow the issues presented and thus limit solutions, and therefore must be changed. Furthermore, Ferguson and Lakoff develop sub claims that detail the flaws as well as solutions to the issues at hand.

For example, proponents would argue for immigration based on increased labor supply, while opponents argue against it based on the notion that immigrants occupy job positions that would otherwise have been filled by locals. In consideration of socio-cultural influences, opponents of immigration may exhibit aversion based on the thought that immigrants would corrupt the local culture, whereas supporters would perceive immigration as a way of enhancing American diversity for the better. Further acknowledging the multi-dimensional nature of immigration is Mohamed (299-301), who examines immigration from a political standpoint.

A large percentage of Americans are infuriated that we are allowing illegal immigrants to take American jobs. They believe that those jobs should be given to legal American citizens, since they should be our economy’s first priority. Subsequently, since illegal immigrants will work for very low wages, employers have no reason to give American born workers, or any workers for that matter, a higher pay (Collins). These attitudes toward immigrants are undeserved. Most of the jobs that immigrants take are low-paying and not appealing to regular citizens.

An immigration policy is a policy that a state deals with the travel of people across its borders into the country, but particularly those that aim to work and stay in the country. Immigration policies can range from permitting no migration at all to permitting most types of migration, such as free immigration. “Many politicians and workers argue that immigrants-legal and illegal-undercut wages and take jobs from native-born workers” (Immigrants and the Economy, 169).
The three papers that have been reviewed and discussed throughout the most of the third chapter refer to the situations in three different countries. The authors conducted research with the aim of discovering if there is a causal relationship between the immigration and crime.
