Consequently, there are many reasons for an immigration reform instead of deportation. Major concerns of this migration deals with the mass movement of illegal aliens into our country. Therefore, reform of the immigration policy is required because not every case of the illegal alien arrival is an open and shut case seems. Therefore, immigration reform can stop the expensive deportation cost, separation of the family unit and alien exploitation. illegal Immigration has always been a sensitive subject for most Americans because of the issue of money.
Anti-illegals claim that illegal aliens pose a national security risk, and that immigrants affect the wages of U.S legal workers (Introduction to Immigration Reform: The Ongoing Debate, 2006). Anti-illegals are not willing to give in to any type of reform; they feel that it would only magnetize more illegals to the country, in a cycle that never ends. However, Pro-amnesty activist have a completely different position, from Anti-illegals, Pro- amnesty discuss how a reform would be a great contribution to U.S economy. They feel that America is a diverse cultural place and should be accepting of other who came to look for a better opportunity, and that this land symbolizes a land of dreams. They support illegal aliens for desiring a better life for them and their families.
Every year, illegal immigrants spending billion dollars on sales, payroll taxes, services, property and income that include paying into Medicare, unemployment taxes and Social Security to the federal and state and local coffers. Many illegal immigrants file annual federal and state income tax returns and they serve the same duty as Americans who pay taxes, as they are subject to the same income tax laws. These people fear dealing with the government due to the threat of deportation and that they cannot even access these vary critical government services. The Illegal aliens pay a higher effective
This issue is extremely disturbing for American taxpayers; “Most illegal aliens do not pay income taxes. Among those who do, much of the revenues collected are refunded to the illegal aliens when they file tax returns. Many are also claiming tax credits resulting in payments from the United States Treasury” (Fiscal). In all reality, it seems as if illegal aliens are getting rewarded for coming into the United States illegally. For illegal aliens to have this much power is disturbing, and frankly, unacceptable.
Not only has the government addressed this issue to be an economic and security threat, but those opposed to the problem also find illegal immigrants a threat to society. Today, the views have shifted in present society focusing on benefits immigrants may bring to the country although a negative presence still exists among them. Furthermore, in this paper I will outline how illegal immigration is deemed to be a problem, the successes and failures in facilitating solutions for the problem, and weighing out the costs and benefits of illegal immigration. Nevertheless, the population of ethnic minorities in the United States continues to increasingly dominate over Native Americans with greater challenges at stake. How has illegal immigration deemed to be such a threat to the United States?
Illegal immigration is a major problem which most of developed countries face in current economy. It has been major political issue for the political parties (republicans and democrats in America) and over years each party has different agenda to address the issue. Illegal immigration can be defined as movement of people from a source country to a destination country without any legal documents and violates destination countries immigration laws. People have moved across lands over years to escape a war situation or to get better facilities in different country. Countries have defined immigration laws to restrict people to enter their land without proper documentation as illegal immigration social and time constraint issues is areas such as social welfare, health care , voting rights , economy and human rights.
Large numbers of illegal individuals from other countries come to the United States every year to seek benefits and to fulfill their "American dream”; all while they really steal the “American dream” from the lawful legal citizens of the United States and cause dysfunction in our society, economy, and etc. There are different ways to look at the national issue of immigration. There are a lot of people against immigration for various reasons. One main one would be, that as a nation we fail to punish illegal activity, which in return encourages more illegal activity, inspire offenders, breeds public distrust, and confuses others from adhering to laws. Illegal activity that goes unpenalized, menaces American ethics of law and order.
The Pros and Cons of Illegal Immigration into the United States Illegal immigration has been an important and serious issue for decades; which affects everyone, both Americans and immigrants themselves. Illegal Immigration has three main purposes: first to find a better life in the ?promise land?, second: free healthcare, and third: for criminal activity. Most illegal immigrants come to America with the best intentions for themselves and/or their families, but many others have alternative motives. The thing that must be remembered is that illegal immigration is illegal. It?s all in the name.
However, if the employer did not know about an immigrant’s illegal status than the immigrant is at fault for cheating the system. These are just some of the current issues related to illegal immigration t... ... middle of paper ... ...e results. I believe that this reform would be rational and helpful to the masses especially if a brand new platform were to be built upon research conducted from the previous policies. In conclusion, I believe that the current immigration system is broken. Millions of illegal immigrants are living undocumented in the United States.
A number of bills have been and are currently being introduced to the House of Republicans, Senate, and the President to take a stand on this issue as well as grant a period of asylum for those that are here illegally. A countless number of Americans believe this issue needs to be resolved. Nevertheless the majority of American people demand a more stringent policy on immigration, specifically the number of illegal aliens in the U.S. from Mexico. What those people fail to understand is the hardships, struggles, and poverty these individuals face if they were to stay in Mexico. The immigration policy needs a reform; the American people must understand why these individuals make the illegal journey across the border into El Norte.
