There are many benefits immigration has created in the U.S. economy. Immigrants migrating to America create a larger work force and in turn reduce the equilibrium unemployment rate in the long run. Steven A. Camarota’s research findings explain that “the presence of immigrant workers (legal and illegal) in the labor market makes the U.S. economy (GDP) an estimated 11 percent larger ($1.6 trillion) each year (Camarota).” Immigrants most often come to America because they don’t have the opportunities to make money in their home country that they would have here. This makes immigrants more inelastic suppliers of labour. They have a higher motivation to work, are more flexible, and if less educated, work for lower wages.
Another effect is that immigrants keep the population growing intensely every year. Lastly, immigrants are also willing to give up their lives and be a part of the military. Even though there are some positive effects, illegal immigration brings more negative effects such as increasing crime rates and drug trafficking, shortage of jobs, as well as higher costs for the government. Drug trafficking and crime rates have been increasing due to illegal immigrants migrating into the United States. Cocaine, marijuana, and other drugs are being smuggled into the United States through the Mexican border.
The response to this question differs greatly depending on who is asked. Proponents of immigration believe regardless of citizenship, immigrants have little to no impact on wages, pay more in taxes than they use in services and have a positive affect on the employment opportunities of native born workers. However, opponents strongly disagree and believe illegal immigrants consume more in public services than they ever pay in taxes, drive down wages of U.S.- born workers by accepting lower wages which ultimately results in the unemployment of natives. Regardless of their impact on our society, what is the solution to the ever-increasing problem of illegal immigration?

Former President Grover Cleveland once said, “Remember, remember always that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.” While this is true, the immigrants, who built this country, came legally. Immigrants create a diverse country and build up a great nation like America. On the other hand, illegal immigrants tear down a country economically. Illegal immigration to the United States creates a variety of problems that will only grow worse if not addressed by the federal government. Immigration has been the major source for America’s growth.The United States has the most immigrants in the world ("Nation of Immigrants").
Piracy has become a major issue in the United States. For every motion picture that has been featured in theaters also has been pirated onto the Internet the next day, and for every new musical album that is released, yet there is a free torrent file of the album within the same hour. Even though these online pirates steal music and movies from other companies and make a drastic profit, yet these “rogue” websites receive 53 billions visits a year from across the globe according to Creative America. The persistence of the thieves that break copyright laws of the productions has lead the entertainment business to place a definitive complaint to the U.S. government of the constant notion of piracy. While the notion of piracy was not left unseen, yet the government plans to establish laws that will cripple the exploitation of information throughout every Internet service provider in the country.
