Illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the U.S.A. and become citizens because they are heavy workers, want a better life and most importantly they contribute to the U.S. economy. Immigrants simply want to obtain an opportunity to live and work in this great country. With all this in mind it is clear that they deserve a path to citizenship. Countless people say illegal immigrants are damaging the U.S. economy; however, they are contributing immensely by paying their taxes. “Undocumented immigrants contribute significantly to state and local taxes, collectively paying an estimated $11.64 billion a year’’(qtd.
legally, that our system is biased toward people who can afford to pay their way in.” (In-text Citations) The current immigration system and the number of visas that are available makes it even harder to people that don’t have that kind of money to enter the country, so “illegal entry becomes the way immigrants respond to the lure of jobs with higher wages than what they would be able to find in their current country” (In-text Citation). A person that I have spoken with and shared her opinions about unauthorized immigrants, and she said, “People come and stay in the states undocumented, they were desperate to have a better life and even though it’s against the law to work here paperless; they still do it because of desperation.” But, immigrating is not all about just seeking for better opportunity to have a better life, but also, people come to the U.S. to reunite with their family that has been away from them for a long time. For example, the U.S. opened Bracero Program which brought millions of Mexican to the states to take jobs at the farm, and after the U.S. government terminate the program, many of workers stayed and continued working in the farm illegally (In-text
Currently America is failing to help new immigrants seeking legal citizenship gain it and is not upholding its part of the deal. Although gaining citizenship seems like a simple thing on paper, it is truly more difficult. America gains the majority of its illegal immigrants from Mexico, totaling just under half, which is currently 5.4 million people ("5 facts about illegal immigration in the U.S."). If there were more attainable methods of gaining citizenship, this would allow these people to become bigger contributors to society. Even though illegal immigrants only make up about three and a half percent of America’s population, they are slightly over five percent of the workforce (Billups).
Introduction "I take issue with many people’s description of people being illegal Immigrants. There aren’t any illegal human beings as far as I’m concerned." ―Dennis Kucinich. The issue of immigrants has become a great discussion for everyone in every single country. 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.
Matt O’Brien stated in his article “The government thinks that 10.8 million illegal immigrants lived in the country in January 2009, down from a peak of nearly 12 million in 2007.”(Para, 2) While some argue that illegal immigrants burden the United States of America and its economy, others believe that they have become essential and are an important part of the US, economy. Illegal immigration has helped in the nation’s economic growth by enabling businesses to prosper as the illegal immigrants have provided cheap labor and long hours of hard work. Businesses benefit from illegal immigration by saving a large amount of money since they are not providing insurance both medical and retirement plans for their illegal workers. This results in a lower production cost for the companies and lower prices of goods and services for everyone. Although illegal immigrants may not contribute directly to the economy of the nation in the
Total inhalation of immigration would not be a healthy choice for the United States. However, setting out for stricter laws to become a citizen is in need. There are over 11.7 million illegal immigrants in the United States (poll 2011). Therefore, having restrictions on immigration overall can help the economy grow, security at airports, docs, borders, and on the streets would not only lessen the illegal immigrants around the country, but supply more jobs for Americans. Illegal immigrants not only live in the U.S, but are supplied jobs in which were made for American workers.
As Senator Charles E. Schumer in upfront magazine has made clear, “What do we do will the 11 million undocumented people who live in the shadows, fearing deportation each day, most of them working to earn their sons and daughters a chance of the American dream.” Charles E. schumer s point is that because of deporting undocumented immigrants are hiding because they're afraid that they could be sent back where they came from without letting their child have a moment to see how America is and what theirs there to see and experiences. Of course, it is possible to disagree with the view that deportation keeps undocumented immigrants living in fear and instead argue that if immigrants are deported America would be letting too many immigrants in and then we'll lose a lot of our belongings then all immigrants are going to want to work and also take our jobs away from us. However the weight of the evidence is on the other side. What must be remembered is that immigrants are going to have a chance to be free and live a different type of life better, cleaner and more beautifully which is also a great opportunity for their children because they also get a chance to experience hard work and good knowledge they get from school. This is fundamentally why Undocumented immigrants people will be living in fear if they are being
Unauthorized immigration peaked at 12.0 million in 2007 1 million of those 12.0 million were children under the age of 18 as of now it has increased; it is estimated about half (46%) of the immigrants are underage”(Pew Research Center). So how is it their faults they are here? Many families send their children to the United States in hopes of a better life. Whether it means quitting school to work for their families to survive or escaping from the violence of Mexico, these children immigrate to improve their living
Illegal immigration causes various economic and political issues and has turned out to be a basis of major debate in countries around the world. However, immigrants may also bring a positive impact to the country. For instance, the USA as a country was entirely built on immigration. Therefore, there is nothing incorrect with the idea of immigration. The issue sets in when immigrants enter a certain country unlawfully.
Many of the immigrants that come to America are from Mexico and other countries in South America but, there is some that come from allies such as North Korea. If the North Korea government could construct a plan to make an attack and we did not know, they could easily get into the U.S if we were to open ourselves to the world. Other people also agree such as the quote, “the forces of economic change have left millions of Americans struggling to keep up.”(Option 4). This quote supports the idea because it is saying that if we let even more people in more Americans will be losing jobs and our society will go down. Another quote such as this also supports the idea, “At a time when our country is trimming back social services for our own citizens, we can hardly afford to keep the door open every year to roughly one million newcomers from poor nations.” In other words, we are letting in too many people already and anymore will shoot down social services for citizens who need it.
Immigrants are a really big part of United States economy it either go up or down. Illegal immigrants commit a bunch of crimes just for a better future for their children. Illegal immigrants benefit the country because they do the work that nobody else want to do if there were not immigrants the dirty job maybe would not be completed. Illegal immigrants may not pay taxes but like they do not have insurance either so what happens is that if they get hurt they have to pay even more than someone that do have insurance, all the money that the hospital charging them (Is Illegal Immigration an Economic Burden to America?). Illegal immigrants are good for the country because illegal immigrants pay their own thing since they do not want to get caught.
Many people assume that undocumented immigrants are taking jobs away from other Americans and then in turn hurting the economy. But in reality The contributions by the generations of immigrants have helped this country to build economy, and made America grow. A Day without a Mexican" is a film about a mysterious fog surrounds the boundaries of the state of California. Then, the entire Hispanic population disappears without a trace. and all the Mexicans disappear, affecting the economy and the state stops working missing the Mexican workers and dwellers.This causes quite the disruption on the personal, economic and cultural levels.
Trump plans to take out DACA which is a program that million of youth Immigrants use. Many dreamers rely on DACA since it provides them permit for work and protection from deportation. Trump wants to reduce the number of Immigrants in the U.S He pledged to cancel DACA during his presidential campaign. In the article “Homeland Security” by Alan Gomez, He states that about 750,000 Illegal Immigrants receive DACA which leads to a attainable education. DACA grants undocumented dreamers to have a life that many undocumented people take for granted.
The American Dream, the idea that lures in thousands of foreigners into the Uniteds States yearly. The hopes of second chances, profound prosperity, success by hard work and new beginnings. In the Grapes of Wrath by John Stainflied and The jungle by Uptown Sinclair, both families in t his book are not exception. Soon, these immigrants learn the disastrous effects of being “ lower class” under the rich, the government and the landowners. Both themes___ the idea that the most damage was not done by those of authority, but in reality the most damage both families suffered was their own inclination to exploit one another and corrupt themselves in time of difficulty.
Every year illegal immigrants come into our country and with them they bring their children. Roughly a million children are brought here yearly as their parents seek better lives for their families. That’s where the United States struggles to enforce laws and kick them out because they’re young and most likely had no say in whether or not to enter our country. I sympathize for the kids no doubt, but the fact that they have entered the country illegally is unacceptable; for according to the rule of law, no person is above the law nor below it. According to the law, it is ILLEGAL to enter the United States without going through the process of naturalization.
