Legal immigrants with a higher education and a better job have a fiscal gain because they pay more taxes than they receive government aid. Educated immigrant’s fiscal benefit is more than $105,000 in a life
Compulsory voting has proven to better represent the young, poor, and minorities who tend not to vote. However, it is not cost effective. The labor involved and the cost to pay for the jurisdiction and congressmen to pass it is extremely high. America would lose more money a year on this system and further drive down already struggling sectors such as social security and education by being forced to draw even more of their finds a way. As it stands now the concept is not constitutional, an altar to the first and twenty-fourth amendments would be required at least, and that would still not guarantee it to pass.
Facilitating legal border entry and exit crossings of people and goods while maintaining secure a border infrastructure is rife with challenges. First, there are the costs associated with highly secured borders. In the post 9/11 period over $100 billion dollars has been spent on securing the southwestern border of the United States, while there has not been another major terrorist attack on the US, there is little to show for the hardening of borders (Thurston, 2009). The US is still experiencing record high illegal immigration and drug trafficking while continuing to add more expensive military grade hardware and technology in an attempt to better secure the border. Additionally, there is the training and recruitment cost associated with
But you are more likely to commit a crime the less money you have and the average Mexican makes four thousand USD per year which is far from being able to afford a plane ticket. If you have enough money for a plane ticket then chances are that you are well off and there is no point for you to commit a crime since you already have money. So I’d say that the illegal immigrants that come through plane are most likely not a danger to us and have no intent to do any crimes. But another argument is that they are just trying to escape problems and that they’re having many problems in their home country. But that doesn’t give them permission to come in illegally, if they want to come into our country they need to come in legally.
In recent years, homelessness has become an extreme problem within America and its beloved cities. It has hit a country-wide record in growth that the public and government cannot ignore any longer. Homelessness is so important in society today, because it affects all of American society, and it has become essential for the country to help find ways to help those in need due to its large scale of growth because the economy is declining. So far, some measures are being taken in order to relieve the problem, but it still begins to grow even more with everyday that goes by.
Immigration in through Texas has always been at a high number, do too the border of Mexico touching Texas. However, the rate of illegal immigrants has increased drastically over the past couple of years. Studies performed by the Federation for American Reform (FAIR), shows that between 2010 and 2013 the number of illegal immigrants has increased by 70,000. With the rate of illegal immigrants, increasing at this rate, the taxpaying citizens, are taking a major hit. Illegal Immigration doesn’t seem like it would cause a major issue because they do make up 8.9 percent of the state’s labor force, based on the studies of the Pew Research Center.
Without immigration most Americans wouldn’t be alive today. If it weren’t for immigration America would be empty, and without immigration today America will soon be empty. The increasing cautious procedures against immigration, within America, are unnecessary and inhumane. The reasons being that America, as a country, has a history of legal immigration, the job benefits are immensely important to Americans, and it’s a matter of safety for the
However, this lies in the hands of Congress. I believe that the problem of illegal immigration is not going to go away any time soon and that it will increase during the upcoming years. It is evident that the Department of Homeland Security, United States Customs, and Border Patrol are not able to solve this situation alone. It is not because they are not capable or don’t have the training… it is simply the fact, that they do not have enough personnel on the borders, that is trained to conduct the daily operations. The Department of Defense continues to receive budget cuts, and with those budget cuts, the nation seems more vulnerable each day.
The topic of Immigration has become an issue met with much trepidation due to bias media propaganda. However, local economies stand to gain dividends as a number of immigrants increase over the next ten years. The rise of immigrant workers has caused the natives to become doubtful of future job opportunities. Meanwhile, city officials, as well as business owners, see the positive impact an immigrant workforce can have on a region, specifically metropolitan regions. “Midwestern metropolitan areas have experienced a decline in native workers by 3.3 percent” (Brunswick, 2014) however, the influx of immigrant workers have tripled in the last decade.
“From 2000-2010, exports of American goods jumped 66%; the export of services increased even more – 84% (Kinicki & Williams, 2012)”. Due to the rules and regulations for the companies that are settled in the United States, it is sometimes harder for the company to be successful. The United States has more safety regulations than other countries, like Mexico. The materials for companies in the United States are more expensive too. These are some of the reasons; companies have been closing their factories and businesses in the United States and moving elsewhere.
If you had the power to make others migrate back to their home country, in which is the place they tried to escape from...Would you? Immigration should be legal because there is no reason for people that entered this country, to leave. Immigrants pay taxes, they aren't the dominant race causing problems in the US, and the US has more/better job offers than wherever it is where they came from. Immigrants come into this country and they do what they are supposed to do, and they act like their US citizens, not doing anything wrong. Immigrants do pay taxes.
Should it be easier for people to come to the United States? The United States government should make it easier for people to come to the United States and become citizens. The American dream is something everyone hopes to achieve someday as they start a new life. Immigrants are happy and have only good thing to say about the United States.
