The letting immigrants stay can bring benefits to the economy, influence good values, and motivate others to chase after the American Dream. Deporting undocumented immigrants isn’t right and they deserve a given chance to begin a new life without the government interfering. Allowing foreigners to adjust their status will enhance national
In part immigration has caused a fiscal gain that help the U.S. government. “George Borjas, the nation’s leading immigration economist estimates that the presence of immigrant workers (legal or illegal) in the labor market makes the United States economy (GDP) an estimate 11 percent larger (1.6 trillion) each year” (Camarota). Those who come and work in the United States have to pay their fair share of taxes and with so many immigrants in this country, the economy has seen an increase over time in which they benefit. “undocumented immigrants nationwide pay on average an estimated eight percent of their income in state and local taxes… the top one percent of taxpayers pay an average nationwide effective tax rate of just 4.5 percent” (Ivanova). Illegal immigrants are not able to receive their taxes back from what they paid throughout the year because they are illegal and trying to retrieve it could lead them to being deported and they do not want to risk that.
America a country full of dreams coming true. People from over the globe travel to America in order to find a better life for themselves. As a newly born country, America is able to create this reality by their developing economy. The government helps sustain their increasing economic status by creating the Commerce Clause in the Constitution. The Commerce clause allows Congress to regulate trade between foreign nations, states, and Indian tribes(I.VIII.III).
Although this may seem negative, it actually improved the economy through the devaluation of US dollar, which in turn made US exports more cheaper and thus more popular. (Klein) Besides that, the New Deal also created many governmental programs that are still in use today, such as welfare and the Federal Housing Administration. The New Deal was a benefit to the people, as it focused on improving the quality of life and creating jobs. FDR is not the only person to be an advocate for the termination of desolation.
Immigration is a worldwide phenomenon. Better income, higher education and improved living standard are the goals of every immigrant searching for safety and stability. They move from their homeland leaving their jobs, homes and some also leave their families to search for a better job. There are advantages of immigration for the host country such as job vacancies that immigrants fill for minimum wages. Income growth that results from buying and saving money is another advantage.
In the story “The Upside of Income Inequality”, Gary S. Becker and Kevin M. Murphy effectively express’s the importance and need for income inequality in our society. Furthermore, Holly Ellyatt’s newspaper article Income Inequality: Is It Good For Everyone? serves to also point out that economic success and greater productivity is linked to “income inequality”. Although it may seem extremely unfair for someone to make up to two hundred and fifty times as much money as someone else, this notion of “income inequality” actually benefits the society as a whole by encouraging others to work much harder in life and better themselves and their education.
For examples, one of my nephew is pays nearly 10, 0000 dollar taxes every years. That way the government can help people who need money such as food stamps and all. Also, Immigrants people helps to develop science and technologies, and other fields. For example, the research by the Kauffman in the article Immigrants Are Crucial to the American Dream says that “25 percent of the U.S science and technology companies have their chief executives are foreign born and these immigrant are highly educated (Mike Ford 241).” For all this reasons immigrants help American society in positive way as
They come to the U.S in order to flee from destruction and upheaval in their countries or just to work to support family back home. As they are willing to work for less than under minimum wage in the U.S as it is still higher than wage they received at home. As Hanson wrote in his report “The Economic Logic of Illegal Immigration” in 2007, the influx of illegal workers resulted in increasing the supply of labor with low-wage, raising the productivity of resources that need a large number of laborers to be exploited more efficiently. For example, the employers who rent illegal aliens to work for them are able to cut costs, produce products at a cheaper rate so that they can provide their services or products in greater number to a wider market at more affordable prices. One more example is about perishable agriculture where most of the landlords in Arizona, Florida or California need to hire field hands to plan, harvest and process.
American is known as the land of free it’s open to anyone who wants to make an honest and fair living. But unfortunately America has been taken advantage of. America has been taken advantage of by illegal immigrants. These and take resources that should not be available to them, in addition they also live here virtually free since they don’t pay anything. Illegal Immigrants should not be able to stay in America.
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.
Now some Americans believe that they will pay more in taxes than they will for actually paying the tuition of that school. This could be the case for higher-income families due to the fact that the more money one makes the more taxes the IRS retrieves from one 's paycheck. However, It is the responsibility of those families to help their fellow Americans. Every families economic background is the product of laws and decisions made by the government and the American public. To this day the ghetto 's of America are the parts of this country that have been rejected and looked down upon by the government and its fellow citizens because of criminal activity and low-income status.
The shortfall of the debt be reduced about $2 billion over the years. Another way is if there was another reform that would create more than 900,000 jobs. By creating more jobs it would increase the demand on the consumer goods. However by having a reform like this it can help to increase the GDP to about 2 percent by the year 2016. Throughout the years it would help the economy because the more people that would come into the country and trying to start their own business or start working, they would need somewhere to stay, and items to buy for their new lives.
Today, there are endless arguments about the existing of the American dream. In “They say, I say” by Gerald Graff, Cathy Birkenstein and Russel Durst. There are four article that I have evaluated. The upside of income inequality – Gary S. Becker and Kevin M. Murphy, American Dream: dead, alive, or on hold – Brandon King, Bring on more immigrant entrepreneur – Shayan Zadeh, America remains the world’s beacon of success – Tim Roemer
