Illegal immigration is a prevalent subject of talk all over television and in conversations. Mainly, the one immigration that many talk about is concerning Mexico and the United States of America. Every day, illegal immigrants are increasingly coming into America. Some critics are crying out for a crackdown on illegal immigration while others are saying to leave the immigrants alone and help them to become citizens. However, immigration brings numerous problems that far out way the good it brings. Immigration limits job openings, endangers the lives of others, and takes away money from the government.
Throughout the history of the United States immigration has become apart of our country’s fabric which, began centuries ago. Only to become a hot topic in the US in recent years with its primary focus being illegal immigrants. Illegal immigration is when people enter a country without government permission. As of 2008 the Center for Immigration Studies estimated that there are 11 million illegal immigrants in the US which is down from 2007‘s 12.5 million people. Although the Center for Immigration Studies estimates are very different from other estimates that range from 7 to 20 million. While the Pew Hispanic Center estimated in March of 2009 there are 11.1 million illegal immigrants and that number is from March 2007’s peak of 12 million. The exact number of illegal immigrants is unknown because they are illegal immigrants. A 2005 report from the Pew Hispanic Center stated that 22% of illegal immigrants were from Latin American Countries, mostly from Central America, 13% from Asia, 56% from Mexico, with 6% between Europe and Canada, and 3% were from the rest of the world and Africa. In the United States alone every day there are almost 70,000 foreigners to migrate here. Within those 70,000 over 60,000 of them are businessmen, travelers and students; there are about 5,000 that are illegal immigrants; with 2,000 legal immigrants. Illegal immigrants have been and has continued to outnumber the number of legal immigrants, which has been going on since the 1990’s. It’s partially because of this that US lawmakers have recently made an even bigger attempt at enforcing immigration laws.
According to the information on ProCon, which as a website that gather statistics on illegal immigration, there are over 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States as of 2012 (ProCon.org). In other words, 11 million people have passed into the United States without any permission. This is obviously an issue. We have laws put into place by the U.S. government to prevent this, however, the laws are not being enforced as firm as they should be. Illegal immigration laws need to be enforced more then they already are first, do something about the 11 million immigrants that have come into our country without legal permission and second, prevent any immigrants from entering the U.S. illegally in the future.
Immigration is the greatest part of American history. In the beginning, Immigrants brought a vast variety of cultures and beliefs and turned America in to the beauty it is today. Immigrants are still doing this. However, the issue with immigration can be it 's illegal status. Many undocumented immigrants are entering this country causing questions among the American citizens.

Most come fleeing persecution, although some come here for more demented reasons. Those, illegal immigrants will be done away with.

Illegal immigration in the US is and has been an ongoing battle for many years. According to legal-dictionary an illegal immigrant is define as an alien (non-citizen) who has entered the united sates without government permission or stayed beyond the termination date of a visa. There are many problems that occur such as overpopulation, raising crime rates and unemployment. Some Americans have issues with illegal immigration and some do not. Those with the issues are concerned about illegal immigrants taking Americans jobs and not paying taxes. Those without the issue are mostly business owners who hire them because most immigrants will work for a low wage and owners also do not have to claim them on their taxes. Therefore the American government must control the flow of illegal immigrants in to America by bettering some laws such as punishing employers, raising the number of visas and Medicare.
The United States is a country that has been built on immigration. Many people come to this country legally and illegally, it has never been a major concern until now. Immigration reform has been a hot debate in the United States for a long time. Especially since President Obama said it was one thing he would work on. There is a lot controversy about this issue because there are currently many undocumented immigrants in the nation that would like something to be done. As well as there are others who oppose immigration reform. Before getting into immigration reform, some helpful background information is that there are currently 11.2 million illegal immigrants in the United States out of a total 311 million population and obviously more because some have not reported themselves. According to polls the majority of illegal immigrants come from Mexico; Texas is the second state with the most illegal immigrants (Jonsson). People that push for the reform feel illegal immigrants cannot be forced out of the United States being that it may lead to the separation of families. On the other side of the debate, it argues that they are criminals and a threat to national security, and a reform is not needed. This issue is important because immigration reform will affect many immigrants, businesses, economy, and therefore society as a whole. The mass deportation of illegal immigrants might not only affect the families they have (if they do) but it will also affect the economy.
There are currently 11.7 million immigrants living in the U.S. The United States is now again being named the land of immigrants. The new century has been introduced to the illegal immigrant. They are desperate to get into the American culture and are forced to disobey the laws of government to assimilate themselves in America. 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 immigration is a problem that has been growing up for the last decades in United States, and the most part of this problem is related to immigrants that come from Mexico. One of the reasons why most of the immigrants are from Mexico is because Mexico share borders with the US, but also because the immigrants are convinced that if they go to the US they will have a better life pursuing things like the common called “American Dream”. These immigration problems have caused many issues between different races and because of this there is many discrimination against the immigrants. This is clearly seen with Mexicans, even more compared to different immigrants from other races,

In current times, immigration has become a huge problem in the United States because of negative effects that follow with it, but more importantly the government tends to ignore the increasing influx of illegal immigrants. While a legal immigrant is not seen so well either, because of the fact that they tend to receive more beneficially help than a natural born citizen. Lastly, refugees, who is allowed to live here and live off the hard working American citizens that provide for them, while they just reap the benefits and have not contributed back. With all the conflicts that immigration brings, it is too much to risk anymore people coming into this country. Immigration laws need to be strict and lawmakers need to enforce them more. These laws are in place for a reason, they need to be followed not ignored. All illegal immigrants need to be deported, if you want
Nowadays, United States is the country that has variety of cultures, races, etc. mixing together by having immigrants in their countries. However, they need to control these group of people also.
