Some Americans frown upon the entrance of immigrants and do not believe that they should be granted with such a privilege. Although immigrants are classified as negative factors for America because of overpopulation, the abuse of government assistance and the importing of diseases, immigrants should be supported because of the overall meaning of America and their contributions to societal and cultural factors.
