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).
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
Immigration can be described as a person relocating to a new place and settling in a form of advancement. While there are benefits to having immigration, people do not always view the positive side for both parties. Native people often view immigration as a threat to their country by arguing about the lack of jobs and some illegal immigrants take advantage of receiving help from the government. However, according to the Cato Journal, immigrants both legal and illegal contribute to the growth of the economy and the creation of jobs.Regardless of being a native born citizen, any person living in the U.S mus... ... middle of paper ... ... variety of skills. With regards to the United States, the struggle to enter the nation for a better environment and more advancement possibilities has only gotten bigger instead of diminishing.
Second, if you are really concerned about inequality in the United States, there are many things you can do that would be better than blocking other people from coming to our country.(qtd. in Howley) In addition to that, deporting illegal aliens would have a negative effect on the economy and the resources that would be used to send back the millions of illegal immigrants(“ At Issue: Jobs for Immigrants”). It is a waste of time and money, why would we send back these people to poverty and distress? The Unites States could find better use of these resources than to just deport people back to their countries. That is why we should give illegal immigrants a chance to
Overall the American immigration system hurts the economy because the country is not bringing is highly skilled workers; instead they are bringing in under skilled and high-risk immigrants. The only way that the economy can be boosted is if American politicians put their party lines behind them and pass proper immigration bill. Congress has been dragging their feet for the last twenty years because parties are afraid of losing control. Congressional bills aimed at reforming immigration could cut the waiting time for immigrants who are waiting for their green cards. The reform bills such as those recommended by the Jordan Commission would have significantly reduced the wait time for receiving a green card but political lines caused the bill to fail.
Many argue that even though Comprehensive Immigration Reform is good for America because it addresses important issues like creating a committee to adopt the number of visas available to changing economic times, preventing people from working without permits and creating programs aimed at helping immigrants adjust to life in America. Yet it rewards violators of current U.S. laws who entered the country illegally, and those who entered the country legally but overstayed their visas. Opponents of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform proposal claim that immigrants have a negative impact on the economy; overwhelming social services of many states, and posing a threat to American workers as a result of big corporations exploiting immigrants with low wages and poor working conditions. With the recent economic downturn and the severe recession that hit the U.S, many individuals blame immigrants for their economic misfortune and lack of employment. For both the opponents and proponents of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Proposal, for the millions of the undocumented immigrants and their families, and lawmakers; immigration has become an emotional political issue.
People come over because they have family, jobs or want a better life. This may cause some problems for Americans. Certain Americans believe immigration will cause the economy to drop, drop to wages, and job loss due to cheap labor, etc. But no one has thought of a solution for immigration that will work effectively. The lack of enforcement of immigration policies will cause the greatest impact on America’s economy.
Thousands upon thousands of dollars are spent every year patrolling and protecting the border but these immigrants still find ways into the country. If there were to be a more open or lenient border between the United States and Mexico and immigrants were granted citizenship, the country would end up saving incredible amounts of money. New problems would surface as a result though. The citizens that want to remove them from the country support their stance from the basis that if we allow the immigrants to stay in the country we may begin to lose jobs. This is due to a flooded market of uneducated unskilled laborers from foreign countries that are willing to work for less wages as long as they can secure a job.
For example on the positive side, immigrants are taxpayers, entrepreneurs, job creators, and consumers, and on the negative side, they are using government services that should not be provided to them. Even though the positive and the negative both outweigh each other, it is a very debatable topic that may never be resolved. Immigration has been occurring for hundreds of years, immigrants fled from their country looking to fulfill their wants and needs. Immigration impacts the economy negatively and positively through the workforce, and in the future, it will prove to be a positive
