Andrew Pardo Pardo 1 Mrs. Street 9th Lit/Comp Honors 11 April 2017 Argumentative essay: why illegal aliens should not be given a free public education Anita Shaw was in the middle of her second tour in Iraq as a U.S. Army sergeant on March 28, 2008, when she received a phone call that no parent should ever have to hear. Her son, Jamiel Shaw, had been gunned down after getting off at his bus stop upon completion of his school day. Jamiel had never once been so much as even given a detention, and had a very promising future in football, one of his many dreams and aspirations that had been brutally terminated. The one responsible for this heinous act was 22-year-old Pedro Espinoza, an illegal alien brought over here by his
Immigrants both documented and undocumented have been able to promote diversity throughout the entirety of the United States. Such a thing may open people’s minds and become more receptive and open to new cultures and experiences. Additionally, one must not forget about the contributions immigrants bring to the U.S. economy. Borjas (1995) states that with the presence of immigrant workers both documented and undocumented in the labor market, makes the U.S. economy an estimated 11 percent or 1.6 trillion dollars increase per year. Hanson (2007) further notes that immigrant’s aid in jobs that native-born Americans may not be able to fulfill.
Statistics uphold that undocumented immigrants are contributing to this nation by paying their taxes and the only obstacle that does not encourage more immigrants to participate is the fear of being deported. By creating a pathway to citizenship, more money would be collected from immigrants by requiring them to pay taxes. The notion that undocumented immigrants are taking American jobs has also been discredited by the data showing that foreign-born and native-born employees’ unemployment rates are insignificantly different by a fraction of a percentage. In addition, undocumented immigrants are generally the only ones who are willing to accept arduous jobs. The majority of undocumented immigrants are uneducated, but what they lack intellectually is made up by the long hours of hard work they are willing to endure.
We are all human so there should be no discrimination and we should all have the right to go where we please. Many immigrants come to U.S. for better job opportunities and education for their children and wanted a better life for their family. But undocumented immigrants not only live with the status or tag of "undocumentedness" but they also have to face different challenges in their day to day life. One of today’s most popular and powerful quotes is credited to Elie Wiesel, the writer, Nobel Peace Prize winner and
In my experience, legal immigrant workers work harder and are more productive than native born U.S. citizens when it comes to physical labor. If a U.S.-born citizen gets beat out for a job because they were not as motivated to work as the immigrant that was hired, then I consider it to be the unmotivated worker’s fault that they are unemployed not the immigrants fault. However, I agree that immigration “employment-based visas” should be issued according to “labor market conditions” (Kallick). Furthermore, I disagree with many of the government’s legislative attempts to “defer the deportations” of illegal immigrants (Nakamura). The reasons I disagree with these attempts are all monetary based.
Second, according to a paper researched in 2012, cumulative immigration between 1990 and 2006 had no effect on the wages of American workers – including those lacking a high school diploma (Clemens). There is simply no evidence that immigration has any effect on the unemployment rate or that they effect wages. The economical and capitalistic side of society can be related to immigration as well. Legal and illegal immigrants contribute to the flow of resources.
America has always been a very generous country when it has come to the topic of immigration, accepting more immigrants than any other nations in history. Due to all the opportunity and freedom, the U.S. is a hotspot for people searching for new lives. The U.S. has land and capital and all that is needed are workers, and the immigrants fill these spots by becoming farmers, miners, hunters, and other jobs. Immigration has made development in America possible and has helped shape society and culture. In the late 1800s, a tremendous surge of nearly 12 million immigrants came into the U.S., advancing our workforce, economy, and culture; if it weren’t for these immigrants and their impacts, America would not have achieved the power and success that it has today.
Despite the multiple attempts at creating a well-rounded immigration reform the United States has failed to achieve the full capacity of the reform. The United States first failure at the reform was in 1986 when congress passed the “Immigration Reform and Control Act”. The purpose of this legislation was to amend, revise, and re-assess the status of unauthorized immigrants set forth in the Immigration and Nationality Act. The content of this bill is overwhelming and is divided into many sections such as control of unauthorized immigration, legalization and reform of legal immigration.
Immigration is advantageous to our society as it can not only imbue our nation with new ideas, but also brings in workers who will take jobs that many native-born citizens will not. The main drawback of mass immigration is the difficulty of providing citizenship to so many (Wilkinson). The problems caused by birthright citizenship and illegal immigration could be solved through the creation of a North American labor
Immigration bring great benefits. Without immigration, the population would stop growing, The goal is to keep it stable, not to get rid of all of it completely. Immigration keeps the population and also the economy growing. But when massive amounts of people are immigrating to America, it becomes overwhelming to some people. The government must slow down the process of immigration soon.
Immigrants have made significant impacts on all fields of science, revolutionized inventing, and played an essential role in making America into the global superpower that it is today. “It (immigration) has contributed greatly to developing the spirit of personal betterment in American society and to strengthening the national confidence in change and the future”(Kennedy). Immigration has significantly influenced one of the main American priorities; striving for
Border security has been and issue facing Texas for a prolonged time. Due to recent disputes, this year by President-elect Donald Trump, border security has increased in the United States. This problem has affected my community in such a great scale noting that I live in the border city of Brownsville. In a city with Hispanic heritage running through every corner of the city, many have considered border patrol agents as the villains that are trying to get rid of Mexicans due to the racist comments made by Donald Trump. But that is really not the case at all.
It is part of human nature to strive to go further, achieve more and become a better person. Many people nowadays decide to leave their country in search for a better life in order to provide positive changes for their future, and that is the main reason as to why people migrate. Reasons for immigration can include lack of educational opportunities, the standard of living is not being high enough, or the low value of wages. Immigration has become a major part of life in the 20th century, and many people see America as the land of freedom, countless opportunities and thus they choose to migrate to the United States whether as naturalized citizens, legal permanent residents, refugees, international students, or even undocumented immigrants.
