While both of the Imaging The Immigrant:Why Legality Must Give Way To Humanity and The Perpetual Border Battle analyze the themes of importance of immigration and numerous problems in society,The Perpetual Border Battle states that imagination can lead to understanding the immigrants problems while Imagining The Immigrant:Why Legality Must Give Way To Humanity explains that immigration is a ongoing problem however there is no telling if immigration has decreased.
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.
For years, immigration has been an issue towards the U.S. government, continuously going back and forward between two different sides of the debate. Many political figures, including Congress and the Presidents have mentioned immigration, but so far, not much has changed. As of 2016, there are 11 million undocumented people, living in fear of what might happen to their families. Although it is true that they may be here illegally, these undocumented residents should receive a path to citizenship because it is costly to break apart families, they help our economy, and the U.S is based off immigrants, their families, and their ideas, so they should therefore be given a “path to citizenship”.
In times such as now, immigration policy is a topic of controversial and emotional discussion. The key in having educational, progressive, and prosperous conversations is understanding the theoretical foundations behind the argument that a person stands for or believes in. Having factual evidence to support ideas on concepts such as: the opportunities that immigrants bring to a country, what the international rules actually are that govern the entry and exit of people from one country to another, and the causes, trends, and consequences of international immigration. Finding reason and support for these claims can take the discussion behind immigration policy from one of heated and emotional argument to one of educational and beneficial conversation.
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.

One important reason that undocumented immigrants should be given a path to citizenship is that it is an American tradition to let other people into our country just like our ancestors did. According to (Upfront Magazine,Charles Schumer,2016) “We need to modernize and fix our immigration system to ensure that the door to America remains as open to future generations as it was to our ancestors.” What Senator Schumer is saying here is that America always let in immigrants and has formed off of immigrants and has also been where people go to be free and have a safe haven not where they get
Why consider opposing viewpoints? "The only way in which a human being can make some approach to knowing the whole of a subject, is by hearing what can be said about it by persons of every variety of opinion, and studying all modes in which it can be looked at by every character of mind." - John Stuart Mill, British philosopher. The book Immigration Opposing Viewpoints discusses the Historical Debate: should immigration be restricted? Is immigration a problem for the U.S.? How can illegal immigration be controlled? Lastly, how should U.S. immigration policy be reformed? This purpose of the this book is to not change your opinion about immigration but rather inform of others opinions. “ Those who do not know their opponent’s arguments do not completely understand their own” (David L Bender, Publisher) So think of others perspectives, is it a problem for the U.S., can immigration be controlled?, immigration restriction, and how should U.S. immigration policy be reformed?
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.
In the essay on realclearpolitics.com titled Our Brave New World of Immigration, The author Victor Davis Hanson addresses the issue of illegal immigration. Hanson argues that immigration is without a set pattern and that today compared to migration in the 19th century is different because people can enter the country illegally. Illegal immigration is transgression of Federal Immigration law and costly to the American government also it is leading to an exponential growth in an already densely populated United States.
All immigrants that come in to the United States have something important to worry about and that is having medication. The issue of medical rights for illegal immigrants has gotten really spread throughout states in the United States. I support the idea of medical rights for illegal immigrants because there is a lot of immigrants that really need medication. I would say that mostly kids that come in to the United States have a need of getting medication. Medical rights is such an important topic to discuss because people like illegal immigrants need the right of having medication. Even though there is people for and against it, there are always reasons
Immigration seems like it has been a hot subject recently, and it’s always been like that. Being such a controversial and relevant topic, many articles and stories alike talk about immigration. Since there are many different views on the topic of immigration, there are many different texts that talk about it, that still do have their similarities. In the story, The Red Umbrella, the subject of immigration is mentioned quite a lot, just as much as it is in the article “A ‘Band-Aid’ for 800 Kids’”, in different and similar ways.
One of the hottest topics in United States political system is over the millions of Illegal Immigrants in the country, and what to do with them. Congress is constantly debating the issue. Democrats have suggested to make mass citizenship to the Illegal Immigrants, but the Republicans have suggested to send them back to where they came from. Illegal Immigrants should be given citizenship to America because they create more tax revenue, supply the workforce, and children would not have to be in foster care due to their parents being deported.
One important reason that undocumented immigrant should get a path to citizenship is that it is much to expensive to deport all of the undocumented residents. According to the article Senator Charles E. Schumer in upfront magazine,2016, ‘’we.. need to give the million of undocumented workers a chance to settle their debt to society and earn legal
“Illegal immigration continues to be a major problem in the United States. We have people wanting to come here legally and we should not be rewarding people who have come here illegally,” said John Barrasso. The United States Government should not allow immigrants into America because they are having negative effects on our country. Some negative effects are citizens competing with illegals for jobs, immigrants expecting favors, and Americans not getting to work hard for their money.
