The picture of Lady Liberty with open arms outstretched to the poor and down-trodden throughout the world is an inspiring symbol for conservative and liberal citizens of the United States of America. They are united in the desire to continue living out the Founders’ vision in the modern age. However, they are divided in their interpretation of exactly who is included within that embrace. The terminology of ‘open immigration’ sounds appealing to many residents of the USA. After all, why shouldn’t everyone be able to enter our wonderful homeland?
As spoken by Gilder Lehrman, “Throughout American history, millions of people around the world have left their homelands for a chance to start a new life in this country—and they continue to come here to this day.” What is meant by this is that immigrants have traveled to the U.S to start fresh with a new life throughout the history of the world, and we must continue this tradition. Others might say that we could simply start a new tradition and begin to deport all undocumented immigrants. But this argument is flawed. There are more than 11 million immigrants living in the United States today and to deport them all would not only be extremely difficult, but it would also be destroying the structure of our country. This is the final reason why undocumented immigrants should get a path to
There are a lot of controversial issues surrounding this country. Whitin all those controversial issues there 's the “issue” of illegal immigration. I 'm sure we 're all familiar with the term “illegal immigration”. We’re always told about how bad it is. Don 't get me wrong, it is bad but it 's not done with the intention of hurting someone else but to try and change their future. To get out of the violence, drug, and alcohol abuse where they come from.
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.
According to a study released last year by the Pew Hispanic Center, as of 2008, 11.9 million illegal immigrants lived in the United States, more than triple the 3.5 million who lived in the country in 1990 (Izumi). Immigration throughout the years has become a major issue in the U.S because of too many immigrants entering the country year after year. The U.S has come to a point whether they should deport the immigrants back to their country. Believe it or not, these immigrants are a big contribution to the U.S. If it wasn’t for them, the U.S economy wouldn’t be where it stands now. In recent discussions of whether immigrants should be deported, there has been sides where immigration would be good for our country and others disagree. Some believe that immigrants should be allowed to stay in our country, because they believe our economy wouldn’t be good without them and many businesses rely on immigrants working for them. On the other hand, the other side believe that immigrants are overpopulating the U.S and don’t have the money to support all of these immigrants (education/jobs.) Immigrants should be allowed to remain in the country because many families would be separated, they are already accustomed to the American society, and they contribute to the economy.
Like Jan Brewer once said,”We cannot afford all this illegal immigration and everything that comes with it, everything from the crime and to the drugs and the kidnappings and the extortion and the beheadings and the fact that people can 't feel safe in their community. It 's wrong! It 's wrong!”, immigration should not be allowed. Why can’t we tolerate immigration? Maybe it is because there are many risks involved with it. Some people worry that some jobs will not have enough people to work them. However, illegal immigrants should be deported for entering the country illegally, because the government can not afford their costs, this encourages more illegal immigrants to come, and this causes more poverty.
Immigration reform has been a big issue for our country in recent years. Many U.S. citizens claim that immigration is harmful to the US economy. In just 20 years, we have seen the average number of immigrants per year jump a staggering 20%. This has lead to the biased opinions we see towards immigration today. Currently, our country is not receiving any benefit from immigration. The number of minimum wage jobs available have decreased but so have the number of professional jobs. This is due to the fact that immigrants usually do not have a middle class with average skills. They are either refugees escaping their country hoping for the U.S. government to help them out or they are highly skilled and trained professionals needed by the United States. This has led to an economic
For decades, immigration has been a problem for the United States. Due to the people traveling from their native lands to the United States seeking a better life for themselves, and more primarily for the family that has come with them. Immigration is the action of settling into a country of which one is not native. Despite the many legal immigrants not every immigrant enters the country with legal documents and most of these illegal immigrants are poor and uneducated. Some undocumented immigrants commit crimes such as drug smuggling, or terrorism. Our policies on illegal immigration can diminish the problem by enforcing immigration laws, revoking birthright autonomy, and demanding proof of citizenship when applying for social services. Immigration has become a major problem in this country and needs to be restricted.
Hundreds or thousands immigrates legal or illegal come to the United States for jobs. Some immigrates come because they need money for their family and other's come because they want to danger us.
Do you think that illegal immigrants should have a path to citizenship? I think that they should. They don 't harm the U.S they actually improve it. Nearly 14 million immigrants entered the United States from 2000 to 2010, and over one million persons were naturalized as U.S. citizens in 2008. There were 11.5 million unauthorized immigrants in the United States as of 2011. They come and have american families, they improve the economy, and this country is a country of immigrants so why not let them stay here.
The immigration system in this country is broken. The process to enter this country legally is too lengthy and difficult, which is forcing large numbers of people to enter the country by illegal means.
Immigrants are what makes up this great nation that is called the United States of America. Immigrants are why this nation is alive today this country's economy relies much on immigrant illegal or legal all immigrants helped shape the economy that is known today. Another reason is they take the jobs that no other American would ever think of doing. Immigrants can have many positive and also negative effects on the U.S.
As a gateway to the United States, New York City has been defined by the generations of immigrants who have made it their home. According to the 2012 American Community Survey, more than 3.1 millions of people are immigrants. Immigrant entrepreneurs have made great impacts on transforming and enhancing the neighbors in New York City. Immigrants met hostilities when they first arrived to United States, they bound geographically, culturally, linguistically and economically. The formulation of Chinatown is an example, Chinese gathered together and did business. Picking up and moving to a country is brave and risky, immigrants had to venture out and find a way to make a living. One way is to start the business, in many cases, immigrants do well
You may be able to see parallels from then to today in other countries but I fail to see how people sneaking into our country illegally and getting a job from a business in this country illegally has anything to do with slavery or labor laws. I would agree with you if we were rounding up immigrants and bringing them into our country and forcing them to work for cheap labor. That is not the case, immigrants are risking their lives and their families lives to come into The United States of America to escape the hell that they were living in and work for more money than they have ever made in their entire lives. I don't agree with companies hiring anyone that is in this country illegally and think the punishment for doing so should be
People leave their countries and come to the United States to become citizens and find work to make a life for themselves. Granting them citizenship and legal status helps avoid losing their homes and being forced to go back where they came from. Immigration is a natural right, and if people want to come to the U.S. and start a life here, give them the opportunity to do so. Treating immigrants unfair and calling them “Illegal aliens” is offensive, causing racism to stir up. They are human beings trying to find a line of work and make a living for themselves. The letting immigrants stay can bring benefits to the economy, influence good values, and motivate others to chase after the American Dream.
