Immigration has been a repeating issue in the United States for quite a while. Illegal immigration is characterized as the passage of outside individuals to a country without consent from the administration of that country or by infringement of the law of nationality in that country. Numerous illegal immigrants have been accounted for to cross the United States borders consistently. Such reports have started the United States government to seek after an activity of growing the force of the administration to secure the borders of the country against illegal immigrants. Illegal immigration is created by diverse elements.
The Problem with Illegal Immigration Illegal immigration has been a problem with the United States since the early 1900’s. With illegal immigration, people from all over the world come to the United States and try to bypass the citizenship. If they go through the process of citizenship, it could take up to a couple of years. Illegal Immigration makes it easier for migration and terrorism. The problem the Unites states have is the constant threat of terrorism.
Immigration is deeply rooted in the American culture, yet it is still an issue that has the country divided. Marcelo and Carola Suarez-Orozco, in their essay, “How Immigrants Became ‘Other’” explore the topic of immigration. They argue that Americans view many immigrants as criminals entering America with the hopes of stealing jobs and taking over, but that this viewpoint is not true. They claim that immigrants give up a lot to even have a chance to come into America and will take whatever they can get when they come. The Suarez-Orozco’s support their argument using authority figures to gain credibility as well as exemplification through immigrant stories.
Illegal Immigration Illegal immigration is one big problem that is widespread these days. Immigration actually means to move to another country for the purpose of job, permanent settlement or both. Illegal immigration comes into practice when people do not follow the guidelines required before and during the immigration process.
In 2010, Arizona S.B. 1070 was an anti-illegal immigration law that was passed to focus on identifying, prosecuting, and deporting undocumented immigrants. Arizona’s law enforcement officials could detain anyone who was suspected of living in the country illegally. The law also made it a state misdemeanor crime to for an alien to not carry registration papers and people in the country illegally to solicit work. But, Arizona S.B. 1070 was charged with violating the federal Supremacy Clause by enacting its own immigration enforcement laws instead of following federal regulations; violating the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment by denying minorities their equal protection of the laws; violating the 1st Amendment by scrutinizing minorities
Little Babies, Big Problem “Anchor babies” natural born citizen or part of a bigger immigration problem? Let’s be honest our economy is in crisis and with more and more illegal immigrants coming over it’s only getting worse. While the 14th amendment had good intentions originally, it has become skewed in people’s quest to be more neighborly and politically correct. Granting babies of illegal immigrants’ citizenship when born in the United States is hurting or economy as well as causing further immigration problems The 14th amendment stated “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.”
illegally seem have the same rights as those who obey the law and enter legally compared to the people who are actually doing it legally and going through the entire process of immigration. It doesn 't seem fair that illegal immigrants are coming to the U.S and stealing jobs from the average American. As a conservative I believe that our borders should be more closely monitored and the immigrants that are here illegally now should not be allowed in America until they become an immigrant legally. I support this stance because in my opinion, it doesn 't seem fair that jobs are being stolen from legal citizens. Also it has been shown that a large portion of drugs that are smuggled from Mexico to the U.S or the U.S to Mexico, are carried by illegal immigrants.
The only thing clear is that a solution for the problem has to be provided. It is understandable that for many, the enforcement of the border and the implementation of stricter securities measures are critical. After all, concerns about the current illegal immigration situation goes further than just people being in the United States without the proper documentation. These concerns are also about the constant increment of drug trafficking across the border and even worse the infiltration of members pertaining to terrorist organizations like Al-Qaida and the Islamic State in order to commit terrorist attack in national soil. Also it is understandable that many believe that the current eleven million of undocumented immigrant are more of a burden for tax payers, since it is believed that most of these immigrant, take advantage of the existing welfare polices, abuse assistance programs, and do not pay taxes on the income they generate.
I already know a certain group that will jump on my back for stating my opinion so for those I speak of say what you will, it matters not! OK, the simple answer... Because immigrants are illegally in the country! What other countries tolerate illegal immigration? Maybe Britain?
In Donald Trump’s Victory Speech and his campaign website “Immigration Reform” page, Trump has voiced his boisterous opinions and plans on the American immigration problem, but the language he uses verbally and on his webpages are significantly different. In Comparing these two texts the diction is almost foreign to one another, the contrasting use of syllables are great, the statistics are exaggerated, and the fallacies are abundant. Although these text bear the same ideological message, the differences between the verbal language Trump uses in his speech and the language of webpage are pronounced. The level of diction is despairingly different between the two texts.
Socially speaking, immigrants may find themselves feeling excluded from a society with organizations and perceptions that generalize them as illegal aliens who disrupt and complicate social institutions, instead of being a contributing part of society. Immigrants may feel constantly fearful of the federal and state governments’ influence on the undocumented community, which leads to how divided politics has been on the issue. Many argue for immigration reform while others have turned down the idea entirely. Much of the stigma on immigrants involves their place of origin or religion being associated with such acts as terrorism, drug smuggling, and general violence.

Recent events in the past decade has cause many people to portrayed immigrants as terrorists, illegal immigrants, gang affiliated members, drug dealers, etc. This raises questions regarding closing the border or limiting the number of people that can migrate to America.

Legalizing “Illegal Immigrants” in America There is a controversial debate and emotionally driven argument about “illegal immigrants” being legalized in America. There is a common misconception of what an illegal or legal immigrant is, many people believe that it’s an easy process and that the government grants a visa at no cost and that the immigrant is able to potentially work their way to becoming a resident or a citizen. The alarming truth is that the process is much more difficult than many Americans can understand and with the laws and regulations that are being enforced by the government gives some immigrants no other choice but to enter the United States illegally.
