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. Often, immigrants come to the U.S. to escape war, peril or poverty, though are not given the fair treatment and the chance they need to become citizens. The U.S. government should create a safe yet easy way to allow illegal immigrants to become U.S. citizens and provide them with the opportunity for a new life. Time and time again many immigrants are labeled with the terms such as terrorists or rapists. People assume that these words have no impact or effect because their own president continually uses them.
Illegal Immigration Our topic is the negative side of Illegal Immigration. We believe that Illegal Immigrants are bad for the United States. We think immigration is bad because americans lose jobs to immigrants, there is an increase in poverty and having more immigrants in the United States will just encourage more bad behavior and it will encourage more immigrants to come. The first reason we think Illegal Immigration is bad is because americans lose jobs to immigrants who need jobs. Less skilled american citizens earn less money and have fewer job opportunities because they have to compete with immigrants in the job market.
When seen in perspective of only Natives “Immigration reduces the wages of natives in competition with immigrants by an estimate of $402 billion a year, while increasing profits or the incomes of users of immigrants by an estimate $437 billion” (Camarota). Since immigrants come to this country with no previous knowledge or education because their sole purpose to come is to find more opportunities in the United States resulting in them not having a decent economic income. In the United States, immigrants or nonimmigrants, who are uneducated pay less taxes and since their economic status is of low income they receive government aid. The government helps them to be able to have a stable living to survive by giving them food, clothing, schooling, etc. But comparing illegal and legal immigrants, those who are legalized receive more welfare for the fact that they are more eligible to more programs.
Being a citizen meant leaving what other life they had in the former countries, meaning these people had nowhere to go. Getting kicked out of one 's home is the most undesirable thing a family faces. Being kicked out of the US wasn’t all, but before getting kicked out Anglo, Mexican Americans were taking all of the hard jobs nobody wanted. When the depression hit, depression was even worse for Mexicans. Anglo 's were
Which leads to the rebuttal of the argumentative piece, “Curiously, most members of Congress who take a hard line on immigration also strongly oppose increasing the minimum wage, claiming it will hurt businesses and reduce jobs” (Dukakis & Mitchell, 2006). Nonetheless the authors have an exception to this rebuttal, that is if “We want to reduce illegal immigration, it makes sense to reduce the abundance of extremely low-paying jobs that fuels it. If we raise the minimum wage, it’s possible some low- end jobs may be lost; but more Americans would also be willing to work in such jobs, thereby denying them to people who aren’t supposed to be here in the first place” Assuming that most american citizens are going to work, they would take up all the jobs provided out there, assuming that the minimum wage went up and they would be payed better (Dukakis & Mitchell,
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
Ignoring this problem has, and will, continue to create burdens for hard working and well deserving American citizens. Allowing unlawful people to stay within our country has created raised taxes and has been slowly, but surely, destroying the nation’s economy. Within our government
This does not only prove my point further but it also should scare anyone to know that they could die from an illegal alien. Last but not least, is that if the aliens were allowed into America, the government would have to pay millions of dollars for their transition. The aliens are like blood sucking parasites, the blood being our money. Since hundreds and hundreds of the illegal immigration would pass into the U.S, we would be forced to let them not pay taxes. And their health and education, we would have to pay for that as well.
However, the truth is, that by building this wall we will only make America isolated from the Dreamers; people who come to this country for a more desirable life and education. Likewise, it is proven that if the wall is built, it will eventually affect America’s economy due to how expensive this procedure is going to be. This topic will sooner or later create a lot of chaos in the United States considering that there is no possible way Mexico
