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). Another argument that pro-immigrant have is that people move to this country seeking the American dream, to be able to provide better life and future for their family. In the other hand, the anti-immigrants believe that illegal immigrants hurt our country. For example, many people think that immigrants reduce the job opportunities and wages for the low skilled American citizens.
They could state negative Impacts of immigrants, such as overpopulation, drug trafficking, increase multiculturalism, massive escalation in crime, among others, but otherwise there 's some positive benefits as Dave Reichert and John F. Kennedy states one day, that immigrants are necessary component of economic growth, they enriched and strengthened the fabric of American life, they take the most dangerous works and receive the less gain that any company can give. High rates of immigration are frequently accompanied by militant, and sometimes violent, calls for immigration restriction or deportation by nationalist groups. In the thesis will be explaining the main ideas of the topic. There 's many country 's that have already enacted laws design to make more difficult the life of undocumented immigrants.
There is a certain irony to debating whether more immigration is good or bad for America, because unless you are a Native American, you are the product of immigrants. However, the majority of us can never know the feeling of being so completely helpless and hopeless that we give up everything familiar to start over in a foreign land. This requires tremendous strength. America welcomes 675,000 permanent, legal immigrants every year (http://www.immigrationpolicy.org/just-facts/how-united-states-immigration-system-works-fact-sheet), and if immigration stopped there, I think federal and state systems would not have the strain that put everyone on edge. However, when immigration is discussed, it is never about those who hold doctorates, who invest
But now many people take this heritage for granted. They may know their origins trace back to immigration, but they won’t realize that this is how current immigrants build their families. On the web page Ellis Island Closes, published by the history channel, they bring up how deeply influenced America’s roots are by immigration, they state that, “Today, an estimated 40 percent of all Americans can trace back their roots through Ellis Island” (Ellis Island Closes). America wouldn’t be where it is today without immigration. Whenever new laws are passed to make immigration into America harder, or making it harder to become a citizen, America is preventing itself from growing in the
America is filled with millions of immigrants that came to this country….either legal or illegal. As for those illegal immigrants, how are we going to deport over 12 million illegal immigrants? They are “stealing” millions of jobs from naturally born Americans but we never think about working harder to keep those jobs. Immigrants that move to this country of America, illegal or legal, helps this country’s economy stabilize with all the work they are doing to help build houses, trimming lawns in neighborhoods, plumbing, electricity….all the difficult jobs that help us, but Politicians continue to try and reform immigration instead of working with it. Donald Trump in the election has suggested a wall for the southern border of America as a promise
"There are currently 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. People move to make life better for themselves and their families. We need an immigration system that recognizes the hardships and contributions of people moving here, keeps families together here in this country, and creates a rational process of citizenship for new Americans" (Open Society
Even what was happening she was finally able to achieving the American dream. The moment you feel apart of something big and special is the main reason that thousands of immigrant want to live and work in America. Also, in my perspective being born American and coming from former immigrant family, I’ve noticed that I been accepted in society because I was born here so, I already was given the Americans dream. But if you're an immigrant, society is reluctant to accept you as an American, so you have to work hard to
A person’s rights shouldn’t be determined by where they were born, but rather by what they can do; what that person is capable to do contribute to that nation. Many don’t know this, but a significant amount of immigrants fought in the US civil war. Should the people who help our ancestors get your freedom, not deserve to have their children educated? “It is estimated that 11.1 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2011. Unauthorized immigration peaked at 12.0 million in 2007 1 million of those 12.0 million were children under the age of 18 as of now it has increased; it is estimated about half (46%) of the immigrants are underage”(Pew Research Center).
Are America 's golden opportunities worth the risk immigrants face? Some Immigrants were given the chance to achieve the golden door and others weren’t as lucky . They 've had dreams on how they will achieve a better chance of living. In¨Let America Be great Again,¨ written by Langston Hughes he states, ¨The millions who have nothing for our pay, except the dream that 's almost dead today¨. Many immigrants that gave everything away just for a better life got nothing in return.
By offering those currently here an opportunity to work for legal status, Americans benefit from the additional taxes paid by them, lessening the burden on taxpayers. They will have the same opportunity as American-born natives, while contributing to the community and government as all other citizens do. American people can be employed in higher paying positions as the lower paying positions are taken care of by the illegal immigrants, raising their average incomes. By implementing this plan, it gives illegal immigrants great opportunities they came to America looking for, while easing the American people’s complaints of them not paying their fair share of taxes and taking their jobs. The government gets more tax income, more jobs are created by having a larger population, which creates a need for more teachers, more road workers, more fire fighters, and police.
