The most talked about news around the world right now is on the Immigration Surge. Thousands of children from Central America are illegally crossing the United States borders in search of a better life. Can you imagine what these children have been exposed to in their country of origin that they courageously decided to risk their lives’ in order to escape their harsh reality in hopes of finding happiness in The United States of America?
In article II the writer made me feel that he is against illegal immigration. The writer seems to focus on why the town mayor, the residents, DHS, and border patrol agents are against illegal immigration. On the other hand there are some people who are in support of illegal immigrants. However, In Article II, the writer made me feel that he strongly believes in protecting illegal immigrants. He mentions operation Peter Pan in comparison to the surge of illegal immigrant children situation we face today. When speaking on this topic, he shows an extreme appeal to emotion while trying to get his point across. My position on this topic would be against illegal immigration for several reasons. The first reason would be that the cost to pay a Coyote is extremely high, why not just apply for a guest-worker program? Reason two would be that these poor people experience many horrors on the actual trip to a get to where they believe would be a better life. Lastly, because it costs us the American tax payers billions to accommodate them.
In Article one, “Protestors turn back busloads of illegal immigrants, as border stations overwhelmed” by William La Jeunesse, the writer made me feel that he is against illegal immigration. I feel that that he mostly appealed to l...

...up living even better than us. How nice!
The immigration surge topic is viewed by many in different ways. Some people are for illegal immigrants and some are against it. I can see why these immigrants come to the United States looking for a better life. They live in poverty and are being forced in to a life of violence. However, does the risk of coming to America really outweigh the benefits? Mothers are no longer crying because their children are being forced to join gangs and violence. They cry because their children did not make the long torturous journey in search of a better life. It should not be us the American taxpayers responsibility to accommodate them after entering this country illegally. In order to come to the United States and live the American dream, immigrants should go through the process legally and avoid risking their lives and life savings.

- Today’s society has very different views on illegal immigration, but when these opinions are made not all the consequences are considered. In a country with an ever growing population rate, the issue needs to be addressed in a serious manner considering the consequences of having and supporting illegal immigrants. The United States government has spent about $2.5 billion on illegal immigration just in Arizona (Fahmy). While some believe that they are helping society by taking the lower wage jobs, there is evidence to show that it in fact does not help enough to support the amount of money used to keep them in the states (“Immigration Pro & Con”)....

- The difference that lies between illegal immigrants and legal immigrants is very minimal and none of the two seems to be much different than the other. As far as the wages are concerned, illegal immigrants are paid less than the legal immigrants but the difference is quite small because there is not much variation in the educational status of the two. Illegal and legal immigrants pose the same kind of problems to the state of US as without the two the state would have been a better place for providing better healthcare services and tax ratio would have been much lower than it is with the presence of both types of aliens....

- Immigration There has been a lot of fuss over the issue of illegal immigration. It truly is one of America’s biggest problems, in my opinion. This has been an issue in our country for years and it is about time we resolve the issue. The two of our 2016 candidates had very different views on the situation and both felt very strongly about it.

- This source looked at the immigration of America from the 1780’s to the recent immigration patterns of America. For the first era known as Laissez-Faire, the United State encouraged open border immigration for immigrants. However in the era of Qualitative Restrictions (from 1975-1920), there was starting to be a lot of restrictions for immigrants coming to America. For this source, I would like to use it for explaining of how immigration happened from the late 1700’s until now.

- Most Americans today believe that illegal immigration is an issue that the country really doesn 't know how to handle, but is one of the most important to solve now. The reason this problem is so important is because everyone has an opinion for the sake of politics or just as their two cents. People of higher class and those buried in the poverty line have different reasons as to why this is an over-exaggerated issue or a serious toxin to the United States. The wealthy may argue that most illegal aliens bring in crime and poverty, while others of wealth claim that immigrants actively strive for the american dream and complete jobs that no one else wants to do....

The online encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org defines immigration to the United States as "the permanent movement of foreigners to the United States." This online encyclopedia also states that immigration to the United States has been a major source of population growth and cultural change throughout American history." In order to establish an objective and well thought out viewpoint on this very sensitive subject, I thought it would be best to discuss as many different viewpoints as possible....

- Most Americans in the United States may not truthfully admit that there is discrimination in America when it comes to immigration. The type of immigration that I am referring to is that of illegal immigration into the United States from the southern borders. The people coming here illegally or those that have overstayed passed their stipulated time issued by their visas are the ones who are facing this problem head on. They are coming originally from different countries, such as Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and other Latin American countries. In the United States the estimated number of illegal immigrants has grown from 6 million in the 1990's, as stated in the US census (Wo... [tags: Negatives of Illegal Immigrants 2014]

- Illegal Aliens: Friend or Enemy. The illegal alien debate has raged on for several decades; however in recent years citizens have become more aware of the crisis. Illegal immigration is one of the most controversial political issues of today's society. Illegal aliens and their immigration to the U.S. is a problem that needs to be addressed. It is unfair to Americans and to the country from where they immigrated from. Whether they (illegal aliens) take jobs or put a strain on Americans social service programs, the constant invasion of illegal aliens has promoted disrespect for the law and also limits our ability to control immigration....

- Debating Immigration Immigration is the movement of people into another nation with the intention of living there permanently. After a four centuries of immigration have passed and people have moved from region to region, the breeding of different races has caused there to be over two thousand different races.
