Illegal Immigration Immigration is a touchy subject to talk about because it can reflect positively or negatively on a certain race of people. There are many pros and cons of a country opening up and taking in immigrants or even refugees. Countries that take in refugees are getting a better reputation from the other countries that are not taking in refugees. One popular example of a country who opens up its borders to refugees is the United States of America.
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.
Some immigrants start businesses and make jobs available for Americans. Immigrants come here and fill the jobs that Americans do not what to do or willing to do. Many immigrants are skilled and smart when they come here to the United States. Immigrants make it easier for us to communicate with other countries. Due to immigrants we have business contracts with other countries.
Over a period of time illegal immigration has become a very large topic in not just the United States but also all around the world. An illegal immigrant is known as a person or persons who is leaving their countries due to a dangerous atmosphere, lack of work, poverty, etc. Many immigrants take a huge risk in moving into a foreign country in search of a better life, others leave because of political reasons, and some leave because of better job opportunities in other countries.

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
Immigration has always been a crucial topic in the United States government. Especially when it comes to giving amnesty and passing an immigration reform to 11 million immigrants, that live in the country. Many citizens believe that immigrants are detrimental to the well-being of the United States and do not agree with the passage of an immigration reform. One reason is that many believe immigrants take away the jobs of American citizens. Other reasons are that immigrants bring crime to the country and affect the economy.
The social impact of immigration has usually been seen as negative. People say immigrants are seen as taking up valuable resources. As a result, policy makers have seen their role as balancing the economic need for migrants against the social problems they create. Illegal immigration causes many problems in America economically. People say illegal immigrants do not pay taxes, other than sales tax, therefore they are not adding to the nation's money supply.
Many people are aware of illegal immigration. However, a lot of them just shrug it off like it does not affect their everyday lives. This is a problem, because if few people acknowledge the issue, then it will never be solved. Illegal immigration harms the United States in ways such as overpopulation, jobs available, and even serious legal issues.
Immigration is advantageous to our society as it can not only imbue our nation with new ideas, but also brings in workers who will take jobs that many native-born citizens will not. The main drawback of mass immigration is the difficulty of providing citizenship to so many (Wilkinson).

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.
Immigration is defines as the action of leaving one's home country to start a new life in another country. Immigration has been a recent topic for politicians and the new president elect of the Donald trump. Undocumented immigrants serve as a problem to our nation's economy and well being both socially and economically. Illegal immigrants pose economic and social problems in the United States. Illegal immigrants receive approximately 9.3 million dollars in benefits from the Government while they only pay 3 million dollars in taxes.
Immigrants are a really big part of United States economy it either go up or down. Illegal immigrants commit a bunch of crimes just for a better future for their children. Illegal immigrants benefit the country because they do the work that nobody else want to do if there were not immigrants the dirty job maybe would not be completed. Illegal immigrants may not pay taxes but like they do not have insurance either so what happens is that if they get hurt they have to pay even more than someone that do have insurance, all the money that the hospital charging them (Is Illegal Immigration an Economic Burden to America?). Illegal immigrants are good for the country because illegal immigrants pay their own thing since they do not want to get caught.
In the long run, immigrants and their families will contribute $80,000 in taxes to the united states government, providing that all immigrants are legal (Lazear, para 4). Also, immigrants have a positive impact on the workforce, earning money for the government, this can contribute to helping repay the national debt. Immigrants contribute to the economy through the housing market, 40 million immigrants add $3.7 trillion to the US housing wealth nationally (McDaniel, para 4). Business ownership and inventions of immigrants have a huge impact on our economy. These businesses add diverse culture leaving a positive impact on the economy, most immigrants rely on businesses owned by people that have similar roots as them, which helps these businesses profit.
There are many cons of immigration and some pros of it. At this point, they just make it so easy for immigrants to get in whether they are legal or illegal. I would say that most of the people are legal but there are also some illegal ones for sure. One of the main cons of immigration can be the threat they have with terrorism. I say this because it has happened many times.
