For me this is a tough topic to think about. There are a lot of people in my family who have immigrated to the US at some point, and I have a lot of close friends who also are immigrants. But I do want to say that the problems that illegal immigrants are making are getting really bad all over the country. We can really see these problems here in California with all of the bad working conditions and the bad way that both citizens and non-citizens get treated on the street. There are a lot of things wrong with illegal immigration and I hope to let you know some of my opinions on the issue over the next few pages. I think that since the beginning of our county we have based a lot of things on immigrants and how they can rally help us out by adding more workers to the workforce.

This really does make me mad because I have to pay for their needs with my taxes when they don’t have to do anything at all. I am trying to not be mean but this is true for most illegal immigrants that I know of. They can live the easy life at the expense of our hard work, and that is not right. Didn’t those people come here to make their lives better, and not to take the easy way out? I really don’t know anymore. But it does get me mad because someday I might be out of a job, and maybe my kids won’t be able to get a good paying job unless they have amazing skills or are doctors or something like that. When I was a kid, you could afford to live on your own just by working at a grocery store, but it was tough.
