The Economic Benefits of Immigration Aseel Al Mohammadi Zayed University Martin and Midgley states that immigrants now are 31 million individuals in United States (as cited in Stewart and Jameson, 2013). Immigration is sometimes a process of traveling from one’s native country to another due to lack of job opportunities or disasters. According to Stewart & Jameson (2013), the U.S is considered to be a nation of immigrants and it strikes fear into citizen’s hearts because of the potential affect of immigrants on the labor market. Some people think that immigration should be stopped because there are negative effects to the economy.

Zong (2016) states that immigrants are estimated to be 13.3 percent at 2014 from the population of the country and are increasing every year. The majority of immigrants to the U.S.A are from Latin America, especially Mexico. They come searching for job opportunities due to the lack of jobs that an individual can get.
You can’t trust ’em to be fair.”(84), but these Americans like Jake were immigrants themselves only a few generations ago. Assimilating to American culture takes time along with learning the language and social norms. The first few generations are the most difficult, but afterwards the immigrants can be accepted as American people and in many cases slowly become more and more successful as time goes on. The Shimerdas were aware of this, as Atonia explains to Jim shortly after New Year’s Eve why her family would be able to pay off a debt to the Burdens. ”But my mama, she want Amrosch for be rich”(59).
As far of the pro-immigrations argue that the United States was founded by immigrants and that immigration and freedom is what makes the United States a great nation. In addition, immigrants have a huge impact in our economy, like Bernie Sanders stated at the NALEO conference ‘’ It is no great secret that across the United States undocumented workers perform a critical role in our economy.’’ (latintimes.com).

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.
