For example, in the year 2011, the country received some 249,000 new immigrants, which was more than the number it received in 2010 (281,000). The two main cited reasons for this immigration are job search and education. Since 2008, the rate at which the country integrates foreign-born Canadian citizens in the labor force has been growing, same as for its citizens. About
Another concern of immigration, is the idea that immigrants will be a fiscal burden on its host country due to the welfare magnet hypothesis, (Borjas, 1999) as low-skilled immigrants are attracted to countries with high social benefits. In the long run, it can be proved that migrants improve their host country’s GDP by boosting their economy and increasing economic
When seen in perspective of only Natives “Immigration reduces the wages of natives in competition with immigrants by an estimate of $402 billion a year, while increasing profits or the incomes of users of immigrants by an estimate $437 billion” (Camarota). Since immigrants come to this country with no previous knowledge or education because their sole purpose to come is to find more opportunities in the United States resulting in them not having a decent economic income. In the United States, immigrants or nonimmigrants, who are uneducated pay less taxes and since their economic status is of low income they receive government aid. The government helps them to be able to have a stable living to survive by giving them food, clothing, schooling, etc. But comparing illegal and legal immigrants, those who are legalized receive more welfare for the fact that they are more eligible to more programs.
Canada is one of the world’s most welcoming Immigrant destinations. Canada’s official prominence on multiculturalism has frequently diverted attention from the normal problems of assimilation that most immigrants must resolve in order to inaugurate themselves successfully in the country. Canada is a multicultural and a diverse country however Immigrant Assimilation has always been a major problem in the country. Immigrant Assimilation is the process in which a group or a culture resemble cultures of a different group. Canada has a history of Immigrants Assimilation.
Many people hope to become part of Canada’s idea of open arms, as, “the federal government is aiming to bring a total of 310,000 newcomers to Canada by 2018, …, the plan reflects a new multi-year approach to immigration planning that experts say will lead to better preparation and integration”(Scotti). The Canadian government focuses on getting to 310,000 in 2018, coming from a new way to approach immigration. Canada’s aging population has dropped from a ratio of 6.6 people per senior to 4.4 people per senior, and might even drop to 2.2 people per 1 senior. That is why Canada needs more people to cater towards the aging population. However, some officials may be holding off the whole Canadian approach to things.
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.
This idea seems reasonable. However, hiring more illegal immigrants can decrease opportunities of local people to get jobs because all employers want to pay the lowest wage as less as possible, and both local and immigrant employees can work as the same quality (Anchondo, 2010). In addition, “due to illegal immigrations, the overall population of the country spurts and results in major difficulties. There is overcrowding and increased burden in public places and public transport to name a few” (Americans Working to Stop Illegal Immigration, n.d.). Demanding of products and services from the consumer increases more than usual, but the supply does not increase as demanding.
why they didn’t they come here legally? and what can be done with this issue? A statistic provided by Migration Policy Institute, there are more than 43.7 million immigrants reside in the United States as of 2016. Most of them are from India with 175,100 people, followed by 160,200 from China/ Hong Kong, 150,400 from Mexico, 54,700 from Cuba, and 46,600 from the Philippines
Thus, global economic processes made labor more liberal and more international. From this point of view, illegal immigration as a phenomenon has a tendency of spreading. Apart from this, illegal mechanisms of immigration to the USA are used because of a limited number of channels for legitimate economic migration. Therefore, low-skilled workers from other countries, who are demandable in the United States, search for illegal ways of crossing the border. The debate of illegal immigration in the United States is one that is plagued with many details, and one that sparks a huge amount of controversy among politicians and citizens alike.
