Finally, marriage may affect the wages and employment rates of undocumented immigrants, if marriage to a native may bring with it the legal right to work in the host country (Furtado and Trejo, 2012; Chi and Drewianka, 2014). However, it has been argued that the relationship between intermarriages and assimilation is spurious because intermarried immigrants are a selected subsample from the population of all married immigrants (Kantarevic, 2004) and may possess some unmeasured attributes that affect earnings positively (Furtado and
DACA immigrants have contributed to society by paying taxes which support the American economy. DACA immigrants have work permits that allow them to have a social security number. With this social, they work legally and, like Americans, pay taxes. In reality “1.3 million young undocumented immigrants [...] eligible for DACA contribute an estimated $2 billion a year,” (State & Local Tax Contributions). Contrary to many American beliefs, these undocumented immigrants do not just live in the country; they live in the country and help the economy.
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.
Emile Durkheim Durkheim would most likely view today’s immigration topic in regards to two of his ideas: the division of labor and the framework of structural functionalism. In a society, the division of labor is in the form of mechanical or organic solidarity that helps a civilization function on a daily basis. The American society would be considered as having organic solidarity because of the “melting pot” the U.S has created. It introduces a diverse population of ethnicities within one society. What binds people together is the division of labor, meaning a variety of jobs is necessary for society to operate smoothly as the moral order is not uniform across the nation.
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.
Self-interest also contribute to the determinants of remittances, thus to enhance social status within the family and keep connection with family (Singh et al., 2009). Furthermore, the other determinant is the skill composition as a result of education level. It is argued that the more educated and skilled the migrant is the more money they send and vice versa (Richard and Adam, 2009). The information on remittances and the country’s’ income also contributes to how much migrants send to their countries (Richard and Adam,
1992:1). Transnational theory is the process as anchored in and transcending multiple countries (Levitt,2001) , transnational even affects the family members who remained in the home country as much as, if not more than those who have migrated (Mckenzie &Menjivar,2011). Deportation and transnationalism are closely linked as transnational looks at the migration process where persons tend to maintain their ties to their birth home even when they are geographically far away, as such globalization is also an example being coined as trying to achieve a ‘smaller
 Immigration is driven by strong social and economic forces  that are bound to compete with state regulation. Formal labor market laws can operate on migration decisions only through social and economic mediators. Admissions and residence laws often obscure the influence of immigrants’ rights laws on migration flows. The citizens of each member state have the right to move and reside throughout the EU with few restrictions. A larger stock of co-national migrants in a given destination state
I 'm not saying that we should completely stop accepting immigrants, they 're good for our cultural diversity but there needs to be stricter laws on who can become a New Zealander. It would allow for more immigrants in need such as refugees to immigrate to New Zealand and make New Zealand a safe environment to be. It would also decrease the number of immigrants who take advantage of being New Zealand citizen. New Zealand 's identity requires everyone together to enshrine the qualities that show who we are and what we stand for in society. Allowing immigrants who are committed to be a New Zealander by participating in community events, working and upholding the law will bring the New Zealand community together and make us a more effective and
