The concept is fairly simple. A ten-percent unemployment rate for the month of November in 2009 is an improvement, but still a tremendous hit (U.S. Bureau of Labor). Nevertheless, it is not easy to create jobs when companies do not have money. Obama made a smart move by saving big corporations from downfall, but he did not secure small businesses and the jobs that are associated with them. What he failed to consider is that many of the big companies are sending work overseas, and this hurts the American economy a great deal.
Millions of these undocumented immigrants are valuable to the economy and bring in new businesses. The government should not prioritize their deportation; if so, the American economy will be less apt to compete in the global market, millions of potential tax dollars from these immigrants will be left untapped, and loving families will be torn apart. Immigration issues have increased in priority since the undocumented population peaked to 12 million in 2007; fear arises when it is not known who or what is entering the nation. There should be an open discussion of policy change in benefit to the safety and tax dollars of American citizens and protection for undocumented workers which are at stake. Documented or not, I ascertain that the American government should protect the life, liberty, and property of those who share our values through extended border security and immigration
The result is a more restricted immigration policy, with major loopholes for countries that benefit the US economy. The US immigration policy before September 11 was very lax, partly because the Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) was under funded. Whenever immigrants were cited a deportation, INS could not follow up on many of these immigrants who usually remained in the country. Because it could not operate as if should due to lack of money, it is easier to understand that almost all of the alleged terrorists involved in the September 11 attacks obtained a US vis... ... middle of paper ... ...partment’s own inspector general released a report that confirmed charges made by civil right groups when it was reported that the roundup of immigrants would produce huge problems. There is no clear cut, one solution to the US’s immigration problems.
The government must restrict immigration laws because of overpopulation of the United States. Immigration has been affecting America?s population for over two hundred years now. Back in the 1800?s, immigration was encouraged so that the New World could become prosperous. Today, some citizens have been worrying about how many more immigrants the United States can take in, while others do not really care because employers would rather pay lower wages to new immigrants or immigration does not seem to be affecting them in any way. It is impossible to stop all immigrants from coming to the United States, but the government can restrict the immigration laws to a certain extent (Kalla 2).
Unfortunately, some immigrants may rob American citizens’ identities (mostly from deceased citizens) or social security numbers in order to find a decent job and get the “legal” life of an American citizen. This of course will hurt the records of those victims, specially their financial credit. On the other hand, they would end up by paying taxes at the end of the year (income taxes and automatic payrolls). Those paid taxes, affect the economy positively because now American citizens get the benefits, such as of those for Medicare and the elderly. To make this clear, let’s use the example of the baby boomers generation; the American citizens’ birth rate has fallen dramatically, and now the burden is too great to sustain the baby boomers generation.
Nowadays, tax evasion or avoidance is a so common in the U.S. that the top 500 big U.S. firms hold over $2.1 trillion overseas in order to prevent their profits from being taxed in the U.S. The biggest issue of this first and foremost is that this avoidance completely affects society in a negative way. The government has significantly less revenue to work with in mandatory and discretionary spending. This negatively impacts social services such as health care, Medicaid, and things that are foundational to the development of the future workforce, such as education. This can create a seriously detrimental effect on society years down the road as they avoid more and more taxes.
In 1980, the Refugee Act removed refugee as a preference category, lowering the worldwide ceiling for immigration. In those times, the United States had various restrictions set towards immigration. However, illegal immigration still took place during that time. Unemployment of 7.3% has been a part of having illegal immigrants taking jobs of Americans. Many construction jobs and hardworking jobs are being taken from Americans because many immigrants are willing to do more work for less pay and this can truly affect the unemployment rate.
When they are illegally working in America there are fewer jobs for legal citizens and in-turn leads to higher economic instability and can lead to a significant increase in violence. With more violence comes more people in jail which causes more taxpayers money going toward that and not the important things such as education. But before Americas prisons are clear of illegal immigrants, the government must think of a way to prevent illegal immigration. They should also cut back on how many people from other countries that are allowed in each year. Many illegal immigrants have come to America on a temporary Visa and simply did not g... ... middle of paper ... ...tion and restrictions against illegal immigrants they are not enforced strictly enough to prevent America from having a large amount of illegal immigrants in the country.
Either way they are causing nationwide problems. Non-English speaking workers take jobs away from American people because they will work for cheaper wages. Illegal immigrants receive welfare and health care and the money to fund this comes straight from us, the citizens of the United States. Some limitations have to be put on the number of immigrants allowed each year and much stricter border patrols must be installed. Harsher punishments and frequent checks are necessary to keep corporations from hiring illegal aliens.
The biggest against argument has been that immigrants are using up the nation 's resources. Many people worry that with the large influx of immigrants coming to countries like America, they will be left with no resources as a native-born citizen. A government’s job should be to accommodate to the citizen’s reasonable needs. Once they realize resources are being consumed more than the production rate, implementing new laws to produce more resources can easily be done. Also, legal immigrants pay taxes, meaning the government receives more funds immigrants are coming legally.
