Do you know what it’s like to want to start fresh? To pretend like what happened yesterday could be forgotten tomorrow? That is what the 11 million immigrants who currently live in America wanted, and what those who haven’t made it here yet only dream of. In order to give everyone the same opportunities to start a new life, we first need to be accepting of every person, documented or not. Undocumented residents should get a path to citizenship because families will be torn apart without it, because immigrants help improve the economy, and because this is a country of immigrants.
There are a lot of controversial issues surrounding this country. Whitin all those controversial issues there 's the “issue” of illegal immigration. I 'm sure we 're all familiar with the term “illegal immigration”. We’re always told about how bad it is. Don 't get me wrong, it is bad but it 's not done with the intention of hurting someone else but to try and change their future. To get out of the violence, drug, and alcohol abuse where they come from.
Illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the U.S.A. and become citizens because they are heavy workers, want a better life and most importantly they contribute to the U.S. economy. Immigrants simply want to obtain an opportunity to live and work in this great country. With all this in mind it is clear that they deserve a path to citizenship.
According to a study released last year by the Pew Hispanic Center, as of 2008, 11.9 million illegal immigrants lived in the United States, more than triple the 3.5 million who lived in the country in 1990 (Izumi). Immigration throughout the years has become a major issue in the U.S because of too many immigrants entering the country year after year. The U.S has come to a point whether they should deport the immigrants back to their country. Believe it or not, these immigrants are a big contribution to the U.S. If it wasn’t for them, the U.S economy wouldn’t be where it stands now. In recent discussions of whether immigrants should be deported, there has been sides where immigration would be good for our country and others disagree. Some believe that immigrants should be allowed to stay in our country, because they believe our economy wouldn’t be good without them and many businesses rely on immigrants working for them. On the other hand, the other side believe that immigrants are overpopulating the U.S and don’t have the money to support all of these immigrants (education/jobs.) Immigrants should be allowed to remain in the country because many families would be separated, they are already accustomed to the American society, and they contribute to the economy.
Like Jan Brewer once said,”We cannot afford all this illegal immigration and everything that comes with it, everything from the crime and to the drugs and the kidnappings and the extortion and the beheadings and the fact that people can 't feel safe in their community. It 's wrong! It 's wrong!”, immigration should not be allowed. Why can’t we tolerate immigration? Maybe it is because there are many risks involved with it. Some people worry that some jobs will not have enough people to work them. However, illegal immigrants should be deported for entering the country illegally, because the government can not afford their costs, this encourages more illegal immigrants to come, and this causes more poverty.
Immigration reform has been a big issue for our country in recent years. Many U.S. citizens claim that immigration is harmful to the US economy. In just 20 years, we have seen the average number of immigrants per year jump a staggering 20%. This has lead to the biased opinions we see towards immigration today. Currently, our country is not receiving any benefit from immigration. The number of minimum wage jobs available have decreased but so have the number of professional jobs. This is due to the fact that immigrants usually do not have a middle class with average skills. They are either refugees escaping their country hoping for the U.S. government to help them out or they are highly skilled and trained professionals needed by the United States. This has led to an economic
An illegal immigrant, who works for their keep, pays taxes, doesn't get into trouble, and just wants a better life in a country, should be granted citizenship. An illegal immigrant is a person who migrates to a different country in a way that is in violation of the immigrant laws. Immigration has been a tough topic to bring up for many years in America. Illegal immigrants are seen as a bad thing for America, but some see them as an economic savior. There are over 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Many Americans have mixed views about citizenship for these people. Illegal immigrants should be granted citizenship based on how the person is doing. If they are causing trouble they don't need to be here. If they are working trying to get a check to provide for their family then why not keep them here. It could also help decrease the amount of debt America is in because of the increased tax returns.
For decades, immigration has been a problem for the United States. Due to the people traveling from their native lands to the United States seeking a better life for themselves, and more primarily for the family that has come with them. Immigration is the action of settling into a country of which one is not native. Despite the many legal immigrants not every immigrant enters the country with legal documents and most of these illegal immigrants are poor and uneducated. Some undocumented immigrants commit crimes such as drug smuggling, or terrorism. 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.
Hundreds or thousands immigrates legal or illegal come to the United States for jobs. Some immigrates come because they need money for their family and other's come because they want to danger us.
One important reason that undocumented residents should be allowed a pathway to citizenship is that many of them have American families, and tearing them apart and splitting them up would cause serious trauma. According to Senator Charles Shumer, writing in an upfront magazine in 2016, trying to deport undocumented residents rather than providing them with a legal
As Senator Charles E. Schumer in upfront magazine has made clear, “What do we do will the 11 million undocumented people who live in the shadows, fearing deportation each day, most of them working to earn their sons and daughters a chance of the American dream.” Charles E. schumer s point is that because of deporting undocumented immigrants are hiding because they're afraid that they could be sent back where they came from without letting their child have a moment to see how America is and what theirs there to see and experiences. Of course, it is possible to disagree with the view that deportation keeps undocumented immigrants living in fear and instead argue that if immigrants are deported America would be letting too many immigrants in and then we'll lose a lot of our belongings then all immigrants are going to want to work and also take our jobs away from us. However the weight of the evidence is on the other side. What must be remembered is that immigrants are going to have a chance to be free and live a different type of life better, cleaner and more beautifully which is also a great opportunity for their children because they also get a chance to experience hard work and good knowledge they get from school. This is fundamentally why Undocumented immigrants people will be living in fear if they are being
In the 1800s, there was a two island that immigrants had to go to before stepping on America’s mainland; Ellis Island and Angel Island. At Ellis Island, two percent of immigrants out of seventeen million people were denied. In today’s world people are talking about illegal immigrants and how they come in all the time in the United States. There is many debates on whether immigrants should be let in America today or if they should be kept out. America is not as empty has it use to be, so we need to limit the people we let in. President Trump wants to keep immigrants out by building a wall. Also President Trump has banned travel from or to certain areas in the country. So how would this affect one of America’s motto “The Land of Opportunity”? We need to start to think of different options to figure out what exactly what we are going to do to with the immigration problems. With a new president, people are debating over the illegal immigrants.
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).
Some other new obstacles that many can face today is not being able to raise their children while helping them succeed in school, having a securing home or job and not having transportation. Even though some come with a visa they still don’t get the same opposites as a normal American citizen would have. A visa is extremely different from getting a citizenship or a green card. A visa is “an endorsement on a passport indicating that the holder is allowed to enter, leave, or stay for a specified period of time in a country” (Dictionary.com) while citizenship is “the position or status of being a citizen of a particular country” (Dictionary.com). A green card is a permit allowing a foreign national to live and work permanently in the U.S. (Dictionary.com). Getting a citizenship may look simple to get but it 's not for everyone for many without getting or even trying to get a citizenship is because it 's a hard long difficult process to even get one there paper work then there is putting every bit of information in the system and the hardest part is the long waiting it takes it 's a “very stressful process to go though” (Karla Hernandez & Maria Gutierrez). No one in the world would even think that an immigrant would ever leave the United States but it can happens. One
Have you ever thought that this country, the United States of America is secured? Sorry to burst your bubble, but it never was, due to illegal immigrants coming from another country without a valid pass. Illegal Immigrant should not be allowed in the United States. There are many reasons why Illegal Immigrants should not be allowed, firstly Illegal Immigrants take jobs from Americans and Legal Immigrants. The next reason is because Illegal Immigrants cause more crimes to be committed. The final reason is because they insignificantly affect the economic state of the United States.
