Since immigrants are willing to work for little to nothing the pay wages and job opportunities are decreasing for hard working Americans. Another potential disadvantage on immigration is the cost that it places on government agencies and taxpayers. Immigration creates greater potential costs for Americans especially to support these types of immigrants -- old, poor, uneducated, and those with large families because each of them will need more care, like education or health care, which leads to more taxes on Americans.
