Some believe population growth is key to a healthy economy, the more people in a country, the more money there is to circulate. Numerous people believe that undocumented immigrants contribute to the U.S. economy in multiple ways. By taking essential jobs, helping U.S. businesses through their purchases of goods and services, and by paying taxes. A lot reason that allowing undocumented immigrants to become legal would let them change jobs without difficulty. It is thought that with better jobs, immigrants’ wages would increase and their economic power as consumers and taxpayers would rise as well.
This would be extremely expensive. This wall would not stop immigrants from crossing, but simply move their point of entry to a point that is more remote, less patrolled and more dangerous. The results of this would be an increase in the number of deaths of immigrants, but also in decreased apprehensions. The current cost of apprehending people crossing illegally has gone up from $300 per arrest in 1992 to $1,200 per arrest in 2002 according to a study by the Cato Institute. The undocumented immigrant population has doubled, in spite of increased danger as the result of the heightened border security, and the human cost has been incredible.
First, immigrants participate in the country’s gross domestic product because they are hard workers. According to West (2011), a study made in 2007 by the White House Council, claimed that immigrants increased American domestic gross product by $37 billion a year. For example, they mostly work in the manufacturing sector that will increase the production for higher domestic gross product. According to West (2011), immigration adds a third of the population to the overall population growth, enabling a great number of factories to start their businesses. On the other hand, immigration increases state revenue depending on the number of immigrants.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of immigrants, from around the world come into the United States. These immigrants come to America for better life, some immigrants are refugees, escaping persecution and civil wars in their home country. Many immigrants believe that United States is the best place to go. I think allowing Immigrates to United States can benefit America because allowing Immigrates to come to America would have an increase on Economy and illegal immigrants already pay taxes and America is the country of immigrants. I think Immigrants should be allowed to come to America because allowing immigrants to come to America would have an increased on economy.
We should raise minimum wage read below to find out why. In america their are 564,708 homeless people in we were to raise minimum wage to try and get rid of this amount of homeless people in america. Some people argue that raising minimum wage would make worker benefits be the first to go in america. This however is not true because these companies would be able to make more money because people would have more money and they can spend some on things they want. People would have a higher work morale because they would be able to make a lot more money than before so they would be more happy to work longer hours.
This study also showed that the immigrants started investing more into the economy which helped the economy grow. This just shows how the immigration reform benefits the whole nation. Also the money they would have to pay to become citizens, which according to ABC news in some cases can cost up to $15,000, would help fund the rest of the programs mentioned in the reform. The immigration reform would also improve the natural current naturalization process. It would revised the current naturalization test, and make new one that would focus on the American democracy, U.S. History and what is expected of a U.S. citizen.
The issue of immigration is a growing issue with two sides, people who accept immigrants coming into their nation and people who do not and believe that these immigrants should go back to their foreign lands. I believe immigration is not about the two sides but about the reason why they’re coming into the nation and how can they benefit us? The answer to that is that immigration is a good thing for a nation because it benefits both the immigrants who are most likely looking for new opportunities for themselves or for their future generations and for the country, changing its society for the better. Immigrants make the economy grow because they will enter labor work forces that some are not willing to take due to dreams of higher paying careers or lack of qualifications. Now, when a person is looking for different jobs within their needs they will look within the immigrants to find a person who works as that job or career they are looking for.
Understanding English helps immigrants find better jobs, reducing poverty and increasing the nation’s economy. Upon immigration to any country, one of the first things one must do is find a job. However, if one cannot speak the language of their new country, many employers find it disadvantageous to hire foreigners who are not English proficient. In Blackwell 's article “English Should Be America’s Official Language” he says that “[people] who can speak English can compete for better jobs, with better pay,” as they have one of the most basic skills required for most jobs in America (par. 10).
But immigration has its positive impact also. Immigration raises the labour supply and boosts up production. With cheap abundant labour, the economy opens up for further investment and economic development. The immigrants are willing for any job that satisfies them to maintain the standard of living in host country. In the American context there are some unwanted jobs according to the native Americans, which are taken up by the immigrants as they are unskilled or not well educated.
Throughout the years it would help the economy because the more people that would come into the country and trying to start their own business or start working, they would need somewhere to stay, and items to buy for their new lives. Immigrants do not only help the economy by opening their business but also they are one of the largest consumers in the
By offering those currently here an opportunity to work for legal status, Americans benefit from the additional taxes paid by them, lessening the burden on taxpayers. They will have the same opportunity as American-born natives, while contributing to the community and government as all other citizens do. American people can be employed in higher paying positions as the lower paying positions are taken care of by the illegal immigrants, raising their average incomes. By implementing this plan, it gives illegal immigrants great opportunities they came to America looking for, while easing the American people’s complaints of them not paying their fair share of taxes and taking their jobs. The government gets more tax income, more jobs are created by having a larger population, which creates a need for more teachers, more road workers, more fire fighters, and police.
Living in a potent economic country, immigrants like us have found more chances of employment from low skilled level to professional level with increased salary. We can get better pay compared to what we can get in our country. The dollar value is also much higher and more stable than many other countries’ currency which gives us a chance to support relatives still residing back in our native land. Finally, we come to the United States because we have our families already residing here and we desire to be reunited with them. Through family-sponsored immigration, a U.S. citizen can sponsor his or her spouse, parents, brothers and sisters.
Why should we make an exception for these immigrants and give them sanctuary cities? They do contribute to our economy however, and we need them for that reason. They add more value than they cost the economy. Reform of the current laws will allow for those with the H-1B visas to gain citizenship and for those who are here illegally with “anchor babies” to gain citizenship as well. It will be less costly to the government if they become a true part of our economy.
Numerous studies have shown that employment increases from the state and federal level had an overall positive effect on employment (Whitaker et al. 631). Higher wages attract more employees and reduces turnover, which results in company’s saving money. In addition to assisting employees to live above the poverty line, a minimum wage increase would benefit owners. A higher minimum wage would benefit people across the board, it should stop being politicized so
