In addition, illegal immigrants are viewed in certain quarters as takers in the sense that illegal immigrants benefit more from public resources than the american-born citizens of the U.S. However, the reality is that immigrants contribute positively to the U.S economy and pay significantly into the system compared to what they send back home. In addition, the contributions associated with undocumented immigrants involve sustaining the solvency of the SSTF (Social Security Trust Fund). In this sense, the use of cost benefit analysis by those supporting immigration restrictions are unfounded and do not reflect the facts on the ground (Nadadur 1037). The opponents of undocumented immigrants believe that having more undocumented immigrants in the U.S is costly; however, there are no solid reasons to prove that undocumented immigrants are a burden to the treasury.

Immigrants are important part of our society and contribute to our economy in a great manner. They bring in new talent, jobs, and money into our economy thus maintain an efficient and structured economy.

But i Understand does who are against and say that illegal immigrants are actually hurting the U.S. economy instead of helping, because of their low-wages they pay less than a normal or high-wage person would pay for their taxes, so that don't do any difference to the economy. Yes I agree, but what they are forgetting is how many immigrants there is in the U.S. According to the "New York times" the number is around 11.7 million of illegal immigrants living in the United States and if the majority of this immigrants work on a low-wage job they do contribute to the economy.
Similarly, some companies employ illegal immigrant workers to avoid following the legitimate employment procedure, which is longer and more expensive for the employer. When such things happen, the less qualified citizens remain unemployed. With increased cases of unemployment, some jobless citizens resort to criminal activities to make a living (Hanson, 2007). Illegal immigration is also to blame for the unfairness of the United States criminal justice system. When an illegal immigrant commits a crime in the country, it takes relatively longer for them to be prosecuted and sentenced than cases involving ordinary citizens.
The American dream and how to obtain it has been altered in multiple ways throughout the decades. It is more difficult today than it was in the early twentieth century to achieve the American dream. This dream is the idea that any individual can rise up the class ladder from nothing. The fact that the rich population’s taxes stay low and that those same people stay wealthy contribute to the difficulty to obtain the dream. Many immigrants move to America in hopes of achieving the American dream.
The Negative Effects of Mass Immigration For decades immigrants to America were sure of two things. They came for the opportunity to build a better life for their families and they would not seek nor would they accept a handout. The drive and attitude of immigrants who came to America during the nineteen twenties through the nineteen sixties built strong work ethics that created our now famous American melting pot. But for the past thirty years a runaway welfare state has poisoned our good intentions. Well meaning but misguided entitlement programs gave billions of dollars in free handouts to a deluge of new immigrants as the floodgates opened and annual immigration levels more than tripled.
The American Dream Does the migration of immigrants really have a negative effect on the U.S? Due to the recent economic problems our country has been suffering from, immigrants are usually the ones blamed for because they are said to be taking away jobs and opportunities in this country. The way migrants are treated and taken advantage of because there desire to work and reach closer towards the “American Dream” is said to be getting in the way of citizen jobs. What many people fail to see is that immigration brought more opportunities into America than people think. They create new jobs by creating new businesses and paying taxes.
“The United States is currently paying up to $1.6 billion a year in unemployment insurance benefits to unemployed illegal alien workers”( let 's stop paying illegal aliens stay us unemployed insurance). However, there are some minor positive impacts the majority are harmful to The United States. Most people usually get jobs so that they can provide for their families and make sure that they can take care of them. The biggest impact on the economy is that most people who immigrate to The United States illegally come here to support their families, who still live in the country they came from.

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.
