It has specific requirements that many undocumented immigrants cannot meet. The most difficult requirement for undocumented immigrants to bypass to be considered for citizenship is that one must be a legal permanent resident (green card holder) for at least five years. There are only three ways to become a legal permanent resident: be admitted as a refugee, be sponsored by an eligible employer, or be sponsored by a close family member such as one’s parents or children. Undocumented immigrants who have been in the United States since they were children cannot be admitted as refugees, many of their employers do not offer sponsorships, nor do many have close family members that can sponsor them. In the case that they can be sponsored by an employer or family member, undocumented immigrants can wait up to a decade or two before their application is even considered.
They shouldn't have to live in constant fear of being deported, and they shouldn't have to struggle to find decent housing or employment. They are human beings, and it's time that our country treated them as such. Our country needs to streamline immigration. It shouldn't take years for an immigration application to be approved; if it took less than a year to get approved to immigrate to our country, then people would be much less likely to attempt entering the country illegally. People want to come here for better opportunities, and to experience all things our great nation has to offer.
Consequently, millions undocumented workers have entered the American workforce. Most of the blame for the steady rise of undocumented workers goes to U.S. employers, not those seeking a better life. It is due to the demand for low-paid workers, especially in certain
Undocumented Immigrants Flor Rodriguez 2nd hour 11 million people is the estimated number of undocumented immigrants (UI) in the United States today. That’s an increase of roughly one third since 2000. About 75% of undocumented immigrants arrive across the U.S. southern border with Mexico and hail from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Colombia and other central and South American countries. Millions of undocumented immigrants should be allowed to live in the United States without fear of getting deported. President Barack Obama announced that he will take executive action to allow four million U.I. to live in the U.S. without fear of deportation.
For example, if we have Five million people in the country with average economy, then we put more four million people, the economy will be low and hurting all the people who are living in the country.

Each one fearing deportation every day, hoping that homeland security officers don’t barge into their homes and take their chance at the American Dream away. Undocumented immigrants are people who have no choice but to come into the United States illegally and they deserve a path to take to become a legal immigrant.

Immigrant Rights I Ramiro Pineda Jr. am here to speak for all immigrants, about Immigrant Rights, and the equality of all races. I believe The United States of America should accept any immigrants because, they only come to the U.S. For a better life. They should be forced to go through the process of becoming citizens and learn English. If they so happen to not want to be here anymore due to the process they have to do, they can decide to go back. Also U.S. Should be proud to accept these people they come here for a better life, education, and good occupations.
They come and have american families, they improve the economy, and this country is a country of immigrants so why not let them stay here. One important reason that undocumented residents should be allowed a pathway to citizenship is that many of them have American families, and tearing them apart and splitting them up would cause serious trauma. According to Senator Charles Shumer, writing in an upfront magazine in 2016, trying to deport undocumented residents rather than providing them with a legal
According to Dr. Raul Hinojosa-Ojeda concludes that an immigration reform that includes a legalization program for unauthorized immigrants and enables a future flow of legal workers would result in a large economic benefit- a cumulative $1.5 Trillion in added U.S. gross domestic product over 10 years. With newly legalized workers would mean increase tax revenues of $4.5 -$5.4 billion in the first three years. In addition, legalized workers open bank accounts, buy homes, and start businesses, which could further stimulate 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.
“Undocumented immigrants contribute significantly to state and local taxes, collectively paying an estimated $11.64 billion a year’’(qtd. in “Is Illegal Immigration An Economic Burden To America?”). The U.S. would lose billions of dollars in taxes if they were to be deported. Not only do they pay their taxes, but they also help raise GDP.(“10 Critical Pros And Cons Of Illegal Immigration” ). The number of immigrants that do not pay their taxes is too limited for it to be considered a burden to our economy.
An illegal immigrant, who works for their keep, pays taxes, doesn't get into trouble, and just wants a better life in a country, should be granted citizenship. An illegal immigrant is a person who migrates to a different country in a way that is in violation of the immigrant laws. Immigration has been a tough topic to bring up for many years in America. Illegal immigrants are seen as a bad thing for America, but some see them as an economic savior. There are over 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.
Illegal immigration has helped in the nation’s economic growth by enabling businesses to prosper as the illegal immigrants have provided cheap labor and long hours of hard work. Businesses benefit from illegal immigration by saving a large amount of money since they are not providing insurance both medical and retirement plans for their illegal workers.
