“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” By Emma Lazarus (1883). No undocumented person should be treated as a criminal. Undocumented immigrants arise in the United States due to the lack of opportunities in their homeland, and they know America is a nation where a dream can become real. Those individuals willingly perform jobs that nearly all Americans refuse to do; they are reliable people, pay taxes, and help America’s economy. Yet, should undocumented immigrants be granted a path to citizenship?
Thus Jose only encouraged himself doing illegal activities such as making photocopied health cards, and we must stop our friends and families from doing this. According to the research, more than 1,300,000 immigrants live in America each year. Due to maximized population in America, if the immigration process was cut down strictly, some of the legal immigrants would not gain enough rights. The ones who do not treat illegal immigrants right, judges them “why can’t they just immigrate to other countries?” Many immigrants choose to immigrate to America because U.S. leads for better goals, and is better to live peacefully in the “American Dream” [Stephen Harper]. America is being affected the most with immigration issues.
Another quote such as this also supports the idea, “At a time when our country is trimming back social services for our own citizens, we can hardly afford to keep the door open every year to roughly one million newcomers from poor nations.” In other words, we are letting in too many people already and anymore will shoot down social services for citizens who need it.

Illegal Immigration: What Are Its Pros and Cons Individual 2012, there were approximately 11 million unauthorized immigrants in the US that make up over 3% of the total population.

The steady flow of immigrants from all over the world is unlikely to slow down anytime soon which is why America is the most diverse country today. Mexicans make up the majority of unauthorized immigrants in the USA.
Trump plans to take out DACA which is a program that million of youth Immigrants use. Many dreamers rely on DACA since it provides them permit for work and protection from deportation. Trump wants to reduce the number of Immigrants in the U.S He pledged to cancel DACA during his presidential campaign.

One idea that many support is that we need to stop the flow of illegal immigration. Although many people despise the idea, Donald Trump’s idea to build a wall along the US-Mexico border will be the most effective and is ultimately the best decision. It will drastically decrease the rate of illegal immigrants coming into the United States. Another idea is to increase the immigration quota to 725,000 immigrants per year. The 50,000 extra spots would be set aside for Mexican parents whose kids were born in the US and are therefore US citizens, also known as the “Dreamers.” The parents would have a better chance of being reunited with their children on US soil, and have the chance to legally create a life for themselves in America without having to hide.
Deporting back these immigrants will cost a lot of money. Donald Trump wants to build a long wall between the United States and Mexico. According to Reuters, a website on the internet, the estimated cost of the wall they are helping the US economy will be up to 21 million dollars. According to the U.S Government debt, the US is already in depth trillions of dollars in depth. It would be pointless too waste that amount of money into this deportation plan.

A large percentage of Americans are infuriated that we are allowing illegal immigrants to take American jobs. They believe that those jobs should be given to legal American citizens, since they should be our economy’s first priority. Subsequently, since illegal immigrants will work for very low wages, employers have no reason to give American born workers, or any workers for that matter, a higher pay (Collins). These attitudes toward immigrants are undeserved. Most of the jobs that immigrants take are low-paying and not appealing to regular citizens.
There is an estimate of 8.7 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, according to the Center for immigration studies. They come here because they want a better life for their family, but their presence has caused many problems for the citizens of this country. Moreover, immigration has always been an important issue in the story of the United States. Many undocumented immigrants are able to enter the country illegally.

How can one say the system is working well, after living in this nation and seeing the presidential debates all presenting different proposals for a reform to the current system? The flaws cannot be solved by a physical barrier, a wall, being built between Mexico and the U.S. Citizens are troubled by the government paying for the health care and schooling of these illegal immigrants that are not contributing in any way to our tax system.

This data further shows how there are many illegal immigrant’s children living off of legal taxpayers. Because of the informal sector there are many people in this nation living in poverty.
