As (Charles Schumer, Upfront, 2016)has made clear “Without reform our immigration laws threaten to tear apart families” What Senator Schumer is trying to say here is that when immigrants are deported some of their family might be deported but one or two can stay since they have citizenship. In some cases this might be a child that the US keeps in and the family does not see each other again. Of course it would be possible to disagree with the view that deporting would tear families apart and instead argue that not deporting encourages immigrants to break more laws since they already broke one.
They wouldn’t do anything to get deported, not after they’ve dreamt of coming to America for a while. According to the article “Ten Myths About Immigration” on the website Tolerance.org, “Statistics show that immigrants are less likely to commit serious crimes or be behind bars than native-born people are, and high rates of immigration are associated with lower rates of violent crime and property crime.” With the evidence provided, most wouldn’t risk doing a serious or minor crime just to end back inside the runaway country. In fact, they have the same effects on America as native-born people do, economically the most. The same article also states, “Immigrants who are undocumented pay taxes every time they buy taxable goods such as gas, clothes or new appliances (depending on where they reside).”
It’s said that we should not criminalize the undocumented immigrants. The Migration Policy Institute has estimated that 820,000 of the 11 million unauthorized have been convicted of a crime. About 300,000, of the 11 million undocumented, have committed felonies. Compared to the proportion of felons in the overall population, the ratio is only a half (3 percent) (Nazgol Ghandnoosh 2017). Though the undocumented immigrants may not be the criminal themselves, it still arouses serious social disorder through forming intricate environment.
Ellis Island, opening in 1892, was a federal immigration station that helped restrict immigration. It ran for more than sixty years and granted legal immigrant status for millions of Americans. Ellis Island came out of the demand from the American people to prevent Southern and Eastern Europeans from inhabiting the United States and all of the negative consequences of their residency. The influx of immigrants caused agitation among the American native-born. Between 1880 and 1920, America had more than twenty million immigrants, and many of them seized the jobs of native born Americans since they were willing to work for less.
To fully answer the question, the US should have full control over who comes in and out of the US and know the true current status. We need to know actually how many illegal immigrants are in the US. At best guess, there is roughly 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants in the US presently and 5.1% of our labor forces are illegal immigrants. There are too many illegal immigrants and they will take American citizens’ jobs and housing areas resulting in a better advantage in life than a US citizen that has not violated any laws. The illegal immigrants are also not paying any taxes or into social security.
Yet, nearly 80 percent of these cases are ending with DHS [Department of Homeland Security] ordering these same families deported back to the very dangerous conditions they fled. Disturbingly, it has been reported that as many as 83 Central American immigrants recently denied asylum were murdered within months of their return…I urge you to immediately end these raids and not deport families back to countries where a death sentence awaits. We cannot continue to employ inhumane tactics involving rounding up and deporting tens of thousands of immigrant families to address a crisis that requires compassion." ProCon.org.
Property crime is about 1/3 out of all crimes that occur. Property crimes has include the follow crimes thefts, larceny, burglary, robbery,sort lifting, arson and vandalism. The statistic has shown that property crime have fell major about 32 percent in a ten year period. Property crime rate , “of 135 victimizations per 1,000 households in 2008 was lower than the rate of 147 per 1,000 households in 2007” and it was 248 attempted or completed property crimes per 1,000U.S. households during 1997. In 1997 the
According to Marianne van den Bree (2009) 58% of respondents to research she carried out claimed to have been abused during their childhood. This research suggests that to those that have been subjected to emotional, sexual and physical abuse are more likely to end up homeless. Many ex-service personnel find it hard to adjust to civilian life and some leave the forces with psychological disorders, such as post traumatic stress disorder. This makes it very difficult for them to find a job and maintain a household. Approximately 1200 people leaving the forces every year experience homelessness (Royal British Legion, ND)
The lack of resources to extract DNA is continuing to effect the justice system. The backlogs of rape kits throughout the United States has become an overwhelming number while the crime labs have been doing very little to compensate for these changes. Not only does the inefficiency of DNA analysis effect rape kits, rapes effect thousands of innocent humans every year. It is an ongoing cycle and very little is being done to stop it. Although hard to help with the rates of crime, specifically rapes, there is something that can be done with bring these sexual offenders to justice.
Does having officers who check documents based on the color of your skin really work in reducing the number of illegal immigrants we have in the U.S? Would farmers and productions companies land on hard times without the extra help the immigrants provide? .Things have been going downhill for a while now. With all the problems that are caused by basing whether or not you should be pulled over while following all traffic laws, stopped on the sidewalk on your way home from getting a bite to eat, or taking longer at border stops just trying to take your family to disneyland, all because of the color of your skin. This controversial law was passed by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who signed the law in 2010(Serrano, Sept. 07, 2012).
There are a couple theories of how they get social security. Either they’re using forged social security cards, or they only pay if they have an everyday job. They cost American taxpayers $10 billion every year (Miller 35-37). The majority of Immigrants that come here illegally pay no federal taxes or state income taxes and they don’t intend to. They also seem to think that it’s okay to take advantage of free social services and other benefits they may receive.
By breaking this law and driving around without a license is a huge risk for them because when they get pulled over they have a high chance to get deported. Not only can the person not have a driver’s license, but because of this problem they can’t have insurance which will not help anybody because they will be worried about having an accident which won’t help anybody. In North Carolina there is a bill and is in talks about giving driver’s license to undocumented immigrants, but the governor does not approve of this bill. “Governor Pat McCrory also a Republican, sent his legislature liaison to the committee Tuesday to express his disapproval as well. He is opposed to this bill (Binker and Brown).
America is based off of immigrants. many traveled in rigid accommodations, from situations that may be too gruesome or tear jerking to even be told. They left the land they worked hard to find peace in, and then lost the hope to keep the journey going. Throughout the tough years of American history, immigrants that traveled into the States became known, and poured into the mainstream due to the harsh backlash.
