The highly debated topic of whether immigration is good or bad for the economy continues today. While one main argument claims that illegal workers are stealing jobs from native born, the caveat to this would be that immigrant workers occupy the jobs americans don’t want to fill. In the end however, it would be naive to claim that immigrants have no negative effects on the economy. When it comes down to it, immigration leads to a redistribution of wealth from the employee to the employer. As the supply of workers increases, the remuneration firms pay to hire said workers decreases ultimately returning the money to the employer.
Undocumented immigrants’ policies are not laws; therefore, their residency can end by a new administration (Mangan, 2017). The issues that these students’ parents faced in their native countries will be widespread in America as democracy fails individuals coming to America for an opportunity to have a better life. Consequently, The American Association of Community Colleges is among supporters of the Dream Act
Illegal immigration has assisted the economy of The Bahamas and The United States. Illegal immigrants are able to take on jobs that persons would not generally aim for. According to recent statistics, illegal immigrants are often not skilled and tend to find job in the restaurant, landscaping or hotel industry. In another light, unskilled workers would also contribute highly to manual labor jobs as entry level jobs in this area normally carries no qualification requirements. This is ideal for an immigrant and Bahamians often feel too overqualified to do the work given to illegal immigrants.
Why I think Immigration Should Be Allowed Consider the following thought experiment: Moved by the plight of desperate earthquake victims, you volunteer to work as a relief worker in Haiti. After two weeks, you’re ready to go home. Unfortunately, when you arrive at the airport, custom officials tell you that you’re forbidden to enter the United States. You go to the American consulate to demand an explanation. But the official response is simple, “The United States does not have to explain itself to you.” That would suck but it’s true.
Connor Dwyer, a member of the United Kingdom Youth Parliament for Preston agreed with this statement by stating that, “At this age you can make life-changing decisions and contribute greatly to society, yet you are not eligible to just place their vote in the ballot box.” 16 year olds can leave home without parental consent, join the army and can even get legally married (youthoria.org) but they cannot vote? It definitely is unreasonable and age should not restrict the amount of influence you have and the ability to share your opinions on government elections. Not to mention in a 16 year old, the part of the brain used in voting which affects a person’s judgement in situations is just as mature as an adults (La Times). Since 16 year olds already play large role in society and are neurologically developed, they are definitely mature enough and should have the right to
Child labor is a huge concern and more than 200 million children around the world are engaged in child labor. The work they are forced to do is work that is mentally, physically, socially and even dangerous or harmful for children. No child should be working, because every single child in this world has the right to get a good education and enjoy its childhood. Just as Mahatma Gandhi, an Indian activist, Kailash Satyarthi have followed his footsteps and has fought against child labor for about three decades. Stopping child labor completely will be difficult, but what can we do in our part of the world to help stopping child labor?
Because Landa never became a legal U.S. citizen, she grew up knowing that she could be kicked out of the country at any moment,[ when she was old enough to work], Government officers stopped her and took her across the border to Mexico. They dropped her off that night in Tijuana. She had to start over but she knew no one”(Deported after years in the U.S., Mexicans are foreigners in 2 countries, By Los Angeles Times, adapted by Newsela staff).This demonstrates that children like Landa have been living in the U.S for years but still suffer from deportation because they still don’t have legal documents. This is an injustice because some are in mid terms of college or have a full life sorted out already for the future. U.S citizens finish their mid term of college and get to do what they already had sorted out for their future, they don’t have to stop what they
Testing people would insure safe environments for children growing up with irresponsible parents (Welfare drug testing 2). Children have no control over what family they are born into or where they live. But if we can do more to protect the future generation of America, then why aren’t we doing everything that we can? We should be protecting
First of all, one of the main factors in the immigration debate is the cancellation of DACA, which stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. This program was introduced by President Barack Obama in 2012 and was aimed at protecting people who were brought to the United States under the age of 16 from deportation. The program required applicants to be in or have graduated high school, to have no criminal record, and other requirements. It provided applicants
Illegal immigrants are not able to receive their taxes back from what they paid throughout the year because they are illegal and trying to retrieve it could lead them to being deported and they do not want to risk that. 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
