America is an amazing country, but there is more that could be done to protect the border. The united states must change the way they monitor the border, and make it more strict. Though diversity is good, there are too many illegal immigrants entering the United States. I do not think it is fair that people can illegally cross the border and take jobs from Americans. In order to increase protection of the border, the United States should have men posted throughout the border, increase security, and make the punishments for illegally crossing more intense.
Immigrants wanted a fuller life, but United States government was making it impossible and difficult for them (Shultz). During the former portion of the twenty century illegal immigrants were crossing over to the United States. The immigrants came from Mexico and other Latin American countries. Europe was another country immigrant came from. Yet, they faced many challenges to get in the United States and wanting
Part 1: Immigration Immigration, the movement of people into another country where they are not native to, and wish live in a different country. Some major reasons why a person would want to or need to immigrate would be economic, political, natural disasters or just the wish to move to a different country. I will be covering how immigration is effecting the United States of America in the working field, living and economic areas. Also looking into how past immigration has affected future immigration events and the common issues that forced immigrants to choose to move to a different country. As the United States of America grew and is viewed as a country of freedom where everyone has an equal chance to start from the bottom with nothing to
Texas has approximately 1,650,000 almost close to 1.7 million of people who are illegal immigrants that are residents here. Even though California has the highest undocumented immigrants out of all fifty states, Texas is the second. Most of these undocumented immigrants make a huge difference which is increasing the population size of each state such as “California and Texas have undocumented immigrants account for 6.3 percent of the overall population” (The Washington Post). Yet, the race of undocumented immigrants are from Mexico. The Washington Post states that “52% of the undocumented population nationwide is Mexican”.
According to Brianna Lee in Mexico’s Drug War, “more than 90 percent of cocaine now travels through Mexico into the United States, up from 77 percent in 2003.” Therefore, drug trafficking is at a higher Smith 2 rate than it was 12 years ago with just one illegal drug. With other illegal drugs that are trafficking added to this list the percentage would grow and the demand of illegal drugs will rise. We have to also keep in mind that this drug trafficking alone is only into the United States, imagine how high the demand of illegal drugs is in other countries coming from Mexico. The war on drugs has failed for many years, and is the reason drug trafficking is still highly rising. Death occurring in Mexico has quickly raised over the years.
In America, our great nation is facing an immigration problem. As of 2014 there was an estimate of twelve million illegal citizens in the United States (Cairco.org). There is an average of 700,000 illegal citizens who enter every year (Cairco.org). Immigration is important to the prosperity of our country. However, the government needs to take the proper steps to ensure that each immigrant enters legally.
illegally seem have the same rights as those who obey the law and enter legally compared to the people who are actually doing it legally and going through the entire process of immigration. It doesn 't seem fair that illegal immigrants are coming to the U.S and stealing jobs from the average American. As a conservative I believe that our borders should be more closely monitored and the immigrants that are here illegally now should not be allowed in America until they become an immigrant legally. I support this stance because in my opinion, it doesn 't seem fair that jobs are being stolen from legal citizens. Also it has been shown that a large portion of drugs that are smuggled from Mexico to the U.S or the U.S to Mexico, are carried by illegal immigrants.
Immigration Immigration has always been a hot topic during a presidential election year, and this year is no different. Legal immigrants are often celebrated, while unauthorized immigrants are often blamed for many things that are wrong with the country. Still, millions of immigrants from around the world come to the U.S. each year seeking to take advantage of everything this country has to offer. Historical Immigration Trends The Migration Policy Institute has researched U.S. immigration trends of foreign-born people with no U.S. citizenship at birth dating back to 1850. Immigrants as a percentage of the U.S. population have fluctuated over the decades, but in 1850, immigrants represented 10 percent of the total population.
Some people even move with wrong work permits or fake certificates without their knowledge of being illegal immigrant. The reason behind is the tyranny of the agent who takes the money and does not provides the accurate services. The outcome of illegal immigration is jail, deportation and even fine. To stop illegal immigration government of various countries has come together to make their separate offices in each country. These offices help in notifying people with the accurate requirements for legal immigration.
Whether that being legal immigration, or not. “The total U.S. population will grow to almost 417 million — 108 million more than in 2010. In recent years, on average, 1.1 million green cards (for new legal permanent immigrants) have been issued annually” (Zeigler). The U.S. has welcomed immigrated people into the country, but more have entered illegally mainly because of the process required to enter the country is very difficult. The nation’s immigrant population (legal and illegal) hit a record 41.3 million in July 2013, an increase of 1.4 million since July 2010.
