Taxation is a compulsory levy imposed on the income, value of goods and services of individuals, partners and companies by the government. It is can be said to be an approach of imposing tax on the citizen. This imposition of tax, is expected to yield income which should be utilized in the provision of both basic and substantial infrastructural amenities, both social and security, as well as creates conditions for the economic well-being of the society at large.

Thus, economic growth plays an important role in the entire nation. This is to see whether the country is well developed or vice versa.

Demint explains immigrants are creating more tax for tax payers, reducing wages, soaking up benefits without being a U.S. citizen, creating less employment opportunities for natives, and imposing more costs on schools, hospitals, and other services (Demint).
