In one of the short pieces from the book “This Land is Their Land” by Barbara Ehrenreich, Ehrenreich brings up the topic of illegal immigration. Anyone in a country illegally should not be allowed to work or live in that country freely. Illegal immigrants are not the only problem that has created a job crisis in America, but they are a large part of the issue. Radical ideas such as building a wall have arisen due to the massive amount of illegal immigrants. America is considered the land of opportunity, but it is an opportunity that is not given to everyone.
So the employment rate dramatically decreases. This will also drop in crime because no one wants to commit an illegal offense. All the parents will have to worry about bills and how the family is doing. For the lower class, they will no longer have to be in fear that the economy will suffer as long as they have a job(Green Garbage). This would hurt the middle class and the poor class.
Hispanics would not be so cautious throughout their daily lives on if they would make it back to their families, or if they would be deported. Instead, they can focus on creating a better future for themselves, and their families. They can look forward to applying for U.S citizenship, or residency. An increase in citizenships would lead to an increase in diversity and equality. Many hispanics fill the low-qualification jobs that many Americans do not want to fill such as: housemaids, construction workers, lawn mowers, etc.
How can illegal immigration be controlled? Lastly, how should U.S. immigration policy be reformed? This purpose of the this book is to not change your opinion about immigration but rather inform of others opinions. “ Those who do not know their opponent’s arguments do not completely understand their own” (David L Bender, Publisher)
Throughout history, millions of people have immigrated to The United States with high hopes of a better life. This not only helped them achieve their goal, but also helped build America as we know it today. While they can be hard workers, illegal immigration ultimately needs to be stopped, or slowed at the very least because it 's economically crippling to allow them to take advantage of government assistance, it’s expensive to ensure the education of their children, many put lives in danger by driving without a licence, and allowing them to stay encourages more to come. When people come to America illegally and start a family, they have children, so as a result, almost half of illegal immigrant households have children in them. These children are technically US citizens because they were born here, which means they’re enrolled into public schools which costs money that their illegal parents are unlikely able to pay.
A problem that we have had in the country for a very long time is; people coming into this country illegally. It is causing over population, loss in jobs, stolen taxpayer resources, and an increase in crimes, even terrorism. The best way to handle this problem is for every employer to check every single employees birth certificate, citizenship, or green card to make sure that they can be in America legally. Whoever should not be here, needs to be deported back to their own country. Then this would fix all the problems illegal immigrants cause.
The stock market will plummet by $1.4 trillion dollars. We would also lose 121,000 jobs every year. The illegal immigrants account for $832 billion dollar growth in the economy in the past year alone. They also account for $109 billion dollars just in taxes. They might not be legal but that does not mean that they haven 't an effect on you or me.
and all the Mexicans disappear, affecting the economy and the state stops working missing the Mexican workers and dwellers. This causes quite the disruption on the personal, economic and cultural levels. The sudden disappearance of Mexican workers results in massive disruption causing the non-Hispanic population to realize how critical Mexican population is to the state 's well being. There is a huge economic loss resulting from the disappearance of such a large portion of the population.
Hispanic, Hasiah, Caribbean, Canadian, African, and European, are a few of the many people that help make the American Dream possible. Americans only have use of these people when it comes to cheap labor and to help create the American dream yet who help build the dream are not a factor in this dream. Do you know how it feels to be in immigrant’s shoes? Immigrants should be allowed to remain in the United States because of the past American history, law enforcement (border), family, and the economic impact (taxes).
Second, if we keep the illegal immigrants in the US, more illegal immigrants would want to come here. They have heard of many illegal immigrants that have found jobs to bring them out of poverty, and they want to do the same for their family. Parents are now sending their children over here in a desperate attempt to bring themselves over, only to find that their children are getting sent back. It is kind of like a domino once one person gets a good job, then more people hear about it. They all want to come over, and if we do not deport them now, we may never be able to fully get rid of them.
Anyone who comes here wants a better future for themselves and for their family. The other country has too much troubles.” Illegal immigration is a huge issue today that is dividing Americans. Everyone can agree on that. The issue of allowing illegal immigrants to become legal is one that has many sides.
Our policies on illegal immigration can diminish the problem by enforcing immigration laws, revoking birthright autonomy, and demanding proof of citizenship when applying for social services. Immigration has become a major problem in this country and needs to be restricted. Our economic implications would be beneficial towards the U.S. economy. Without the crutch of illegal immigrants holding us back, our U.S. economy can prosper more than ever. Due to the current economic slowdown, labor demands had been reduced and has forced many out of work.
First off, the amount of workers would face a dramatic drop. Since undocumented workers make up 5.2 percent of the nation’s labor force, about 8.1 million workers would be taken out of the work place. There would not be enough workers to fill the now open jobs. Even with the 8.3 million unemployed people in the United States, the skill gap, the unemployment rate would never reach zero. This means that jobs would not be filled.
However, these 11.3 undocumented immigrants are people with the dream of overcoming the difficulties, necessities, and limitations that they face on a daily basis. In them I see hope, perseverance, ambition, and the hunger for a better future for them and for their future generations, and without a doubt the United States of America is the most qualified nation to grant such aspirations. I humbly invite you, distinct creators of the law system of this country, for a consideration of openness for the people amongst this 11.3 million who have demonstrated impeccable behavior, whose sole purpose is to thrive, and contribute to the improvement of this nation. They deserve the title of “legal residents”.
Something that people often forget is that illegal immigration is not just in the United States, illegal immigration happens all over the world today. If you were to leave America and go to another country without a visa and started working and living there you would be an illegal immigrant as well. In this essay I will be mostly referring to how illegal immigration affects the United States although later I will mention how illegal immigration affects other countries around the world. Starting out it is important to talk about what illegal immigration is. Illegal Immigration is the act of leaving a country and coming to another country in a way that violates that countries immigration laws.
