Some people say that Illegal immigrants harm low wage workers, “High levels of immigration hurt U.S. citizens in the job market. Because the number of jobs available in this country is finite, every immigrant who takes a job is technically either throwing a native-born American out of work or blocking the hiring of an unemployed citizen. The effect of this is seen at all levels of American society, but most clearly among the poor. “(Currie 34).
Another negative effect is that many industries pay illegal immigrants a lower wage saving money on the higher wages a native would earn.

Illegal immigrants generate extra income because their labor increase brings an increase in output which leads to more income for U.S. businesses (Hanson).
“The fact that tens of millions of workers will still be trapped in low-wage hell while a sliver of Americans live better than the kings of old will seem like a minor detail.” (David Callahan) Hard working individuals are treated unequally in retrospect to the little amount of income they receive compared to the 1% community and the limited amount of work they need to complete to be considered the 1%.
