One thing we need to do is fix the border. The border has gaps in it so someone could walk from Mexico right into America and not have a single problem. We need to change that we need to make the fence better. We need to build a better border. We can still let people come into America legally, but we need to stop people coming in here illegally. Many people in America don’t have jobs, if we got rid of the illegal immigrants jobs would open up so people would have something to do with their lives. We need to have more people join and help patrol the border. If we have more people guarding it would make it a lot harder for someone to come into America illegally. Another thing that we could possibly do is make them pay to get into America.

In order to fix America, changes need to be made to our immigration policies, gun control, and prices on education. There are an abundance of things that any average Joe could say are wrong with America. Fixing America, however, is a major league task. Firstly, the current gun control policies just isn’t going to cut it.
According to Immigrationpolicy, immigrants pay anywhere from $90- $140 billion in federal, local, and state taxes. In fact, many believe(speculate) that if a large portion of immigrants were to be deported an economic crisis would most likely occur because the large spectrum of jobs that are usually taken up by immigrants would be open. The jobs that most (new)immigrants take up, for example (seasonally) farming and construction, are important(vital) to the (growing)economy. However, since these jobs are very labor extensive and usually have low income most Americans do not apply for these types of jobs. This would create a large gap in the labor work force and it is uncertain if the gap would be filled by
This helps many people see that undocumented immigrants do not take any jobs away from anyone , they only take jobs that people do not want and are available . Like graders, sorters, they also work to make agriculture products, tailors , dressmakers, sewers, animal breeders, maids , housekeeping cleaners, taxi drivers and ext ( cis.org). The only reason they take the jobs that are available is because they do not care about what type of work there has to be done. They just work hard to earn money to take care of their family so they at least have a roof to sleep under and to get food on the table. Also undocumented immigrants have also helped the United States by bringing redistribution of wealth to America.
People in America need to know how to take better care of their country, making it a healthier place to live. In this day and age, so many young people don’t want to work and so America is getting run down. Even though America is getting run down if we work together and we can make America a healthier place for our kids to grow up in. Some ways to help America an improved place will be helping with agriculture, help grow respectable leaders, and help the environment.
Throughout the history of border control in the United States, racial discrimination has been a huge factor in trying to capture and intimidate culprits who may try to commit illegal activities in the United States. Starting on May 28, 1924, Congress established the Border Patrol as part of the Immigration Bureau in the Department of Labor through the Labor Appropriation Act of 1924. ( this is where you look up dates and shit about when border control from the U.S. began etc). In the article “U.S. to Continue Racial, Ethnic Profiling in Border Policy”, By Matt Apuzzo and Michael S. Schmidt, is an article that presents the current situation of laws that are inflicting major changes upon how officials will govern the U.S. border from now on. In the
One of the reasons there is so much immigrant population in this country is because of the economy. In the past, immigration was helpful to the economy when people encouraged it so that the it could become prosperous and bring in diversity and help needed. Today, many people are afraid of losing their jobs. Immigration is currently flooding the labor market, primarily in the low-skill, low-wage sectors, and driving down wages and working conditions for many Americans because our immigration policies do not take economic conditions into account. Illegal immigration probably has its greatest impact on the United States’
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.
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.
One of America’s most controversial issues today is the border between the United States and Mexico. The big part of the issue is due to illegal immigration, which is when foreigners enter the U.S. without an entry or an immigrant visa. President Trump says he has found a solution, otherwise known as the “border wall,” but this will not stop people from wanting a better life. Of course I get why he and others would want to continue the process obviously to keep us safe from terrorists and other dangers of the world, but, to every pro there is a con. Even though the fence along the U.S./Mexico border is already being built, it should not continue being built because it is expensive, hurts the environment, and immigration rates have significantly dropped.
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. Immigrates should be allow to come to the United States because they're better jobs there ,and also they need money for their family. For example, many immigrates struggle to pay for their family needs and it's really hard because I had a friend that her parents had to move to the United States for better jobs. Her parents couldn't pay the bills in Mexico so the only way to get money and better jobs are in the United States.
How Illegal Immigration Benefits America Illegal immigration has been an issue that people still can’t figure out what to do about,while some people think that it’s bad for the country, others think that illegal immigration actually helps America in many different ways. I believe that illegal immigration should be allowed in America for the economy,families, and to prove that immigration does not pose a terrorist threat to America. Some people may believe that illegal immigration does not help in any way the economy,but I have to disagree.
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.
The United States Government should not allow immigrants into the U.S., because it decreases American jobs. Legal and illegal immigrants force American citizens to compete with illegal immigrants for jobs. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, “There are about 11 million illegal immigrants in the country.” These immigrants get whatever jobs they can, putting less educated American citizens at a higher risk for not getting jobs.
The United States of America, being a country founded by immigrants, is known all over the world as the land of great opportunities. People from all walks of life travelled across the globe, taking a chance to find a better life for them and their family. Over the years, the population of immigrants has grown immensely, resulting in the currently controversial issue of illegal immigration. Illegal immigrants are the people who have overstayed the time granted on their US, visa or those who have broken the federal law by crossing the border illegally. Matt O’Brien stated in his article “The government thinks that 10.8 million illegal immigrants lived in the country in January 2009, down from a peak of nearly 12 million in 2007.”(Para, 2) While some argue that illegal immigrants burden the United States of America and its economy, others believe that they have become essential and are an important part of the US, economy.
