Illegal immigration has been a problem in the U.S. since the 1800’s. This problem continues through today with an over abundance of immigrants flooding to the U.S from many different areas across the globe. With the over growing population of illegals, and regular immigrants, Americans are starting to become the so called “minority.” Along with the over growing population, jobs for Americans are being over populated with immigrants, they are willing to work tax free and earn very little income. Hard working Americans who were born and raised in America are either living on the streets homeless or not able to make ends meet to feed their families, thus causing the Economy to fall. Employers are willing to hire immigrants for half the money, …show more content…
There are 11 million plus illegal immigrants living in the United States today (“21 Surprising Facts…”). 7.5 million illegals immigrated between 2000-2005, the highest 5-year period (Bailey 25). At the rate the U.S. population is growing, not counting the illegal immigrants that are currently staying in our country, we are running out of space and fast. We all need to work together to slow down the rate people are coming in. It is projected that the new Senate Immigration Bill will bring 33 million more people to the United States over the next decade (“19 Very Disturbing…”). With the extra 33 million people that are supposed to come into the United States we are going to be reaching the verge of completely overflowing our country. Not only is our country filling up but so are our prisons, more than 16% of the Federal Prison population are illegal immigrants (“Top 20 Facts…”). It is surprising that not only are they illegally coming to the U.S, but they are also doing illegal things in the U.S. According to the FBI there are currently 1.4 million gang members, that are illegal immigrants, living in our major cities today(“19 Very Disturbing…”). This meaning that places like New York, Detroit, Chicago, etc, are all having trouble with shootings and many other gang related

It is my opinion that illegal immigration has become one of the scourges of today’s society in America. According to many sources, such as the Federation for American Immigration Reform, illegal immigration is actually a crime. In my view, anyone who participates in the crime of hoarding an illegal immigrant should be fined or even imprisoned for a year or more, with multiple offenses. Not only do these people overstay their welcome, but they crowd our classrooms and steal our jobs. Unless an individual from the Mexico border has been granted citizenship and licensed to live in America, then they shouldn’t bother to face the consequences should they be caught. I firmly believe that illegal immigrants should not be allowed to stay in the United
With an estimated 11.7 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. today, immigration reform has been a volatile issue that hasn’t been adequately addressed throughout the 21st century. With the last major overhaul occurring in 1986, when over 3 million immigrants were granted U.S. citizenship, politicians are saying another major overhaul is needed to address the newer generation of illegal immigrants. Legislations including the Border Protection, Anti-terrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006, and the DREAM act of 2012 have all tried to address the depressing need for immigration reform but have failed due to lack of bipartisan support. Still, political leaders urge for immigration reform that is unlikely to pass with such divided political parties. Luckily, the solution was already passed in 1986 but hasn’t been sufficiently enforced for the past twenty years. In order to stop the flood of illegals crossing U.S. borders, the U.S. should enforce the law against hiring illegal immigrants.
There is an invasion in the United States, an invasion of Illegal Aliens. These illegals are hurting the U.S. economy and jeopardizing the welfare and safety of all American citizens. The government is currently trying to pass legislation, called The DREAM Act, to provide amnesty to over 13 million illegal immigrants. Amnesty cannot be allowed to illegal immigrants! There are several problems that stand out when discussing the illegal immigrant problems: financial ramifications, criminal issues, and of course, jobs.
Immigration is one of the most common disputes in the United States, let’s define what immigration stands for.

America is one of the most diverse country who has almost every single race in the world. Even though they came from varieties of backgrounds, ethnicities, and races, they can work and help together as one as they live in the same country, America. However, as the time goes by, there is more and more people who come to the United States with the intention of becoming an American citizen. A lot of people came to the Unites States have a holiday here, yet as the limited time goes by, they did not go back to their country because they still want to live in the United States. As a result, nowadays, there are a lot of illegal immigrant who do not have a legal permit to stay in the United States. They are being treated the same as an American citizen, however, they do not do the same to the country. Moreover, they do not have to be responsible for America as they do not have to pay tax, yet they can make a living by working illegally without paying
The United States of America was founded by and for immigrants who were searching for freedom. It has become the land of opportunity, the home of the free, and a place where you can experience the American dream. Moreover, each year whether it is voluntary or not, thousands of people will immigrate to the U.S in hope of a better tomorrow, leaving behind their families, homes and identities. Nevertheless, the journey is not always easy, most of the time these immigrants have to face many obstacles in order to come into the United States. Many will die before they even reach their destination and even if they do make it, they are looking into a future filled with struggles due to being undocumented, and are forced to live each day with the fear of being caught. Moreover, if the U.S can provide amnesty to undocumented people and regulate the laws in regards to immigration we can
Often populace will argue that this group of people are not doing their part as American citizens and paying taxes but what these people do not know is; most illegal immigrants do. As Reason Foundation Senior Analyst Shikha Dalmia has reported, “In 2006 an estimated 8 million illegal immigrants—up to two thirds of the total—paid taxes, including both income taxes and Medicare and Social Security taxes” (Dalmia). Everyone who makes a purchase in the U.S. pays sales taxes, regardless of of their immigration status. Also as an effect of avoiding their taxes could result in deportation as a consequence, therefore Illegal immigrant are more cautious of errors.
These immigrants could have these jobs back in their native country which requires very high intense labor and could be paid what is considered 100 dollars here. They come here because they know that wages here are much better than what is earned back home. Being in a land in which most of them do not speak English but are still out there getting jobs. Immigrants do not come here to commit crimes. They do everything to have a better life, even if that means working two jobs to sustain a middle class life in America.This drive is key in understanding why America needs immigrants in order to be great again. The current immigration policy also locks out high-skilled workers such as engineers, doctors, and entrepreneurs. The United States invests
Contrary to popular opinion, illegal immigrants do not contribute to the U.S. economy. Instead they cost more by using government provided services, taking jobs from native workers, and reducing wages by competition with native workers.

(Demint) For centuries immigration has been indispensable to the health of our nation, as it will be for our nation’s future success. (Demint) Although this is true, immigrants should still come to our nation lawfully and not burden our nations loyal and already overburdened taxpayers more with fiscal costs. (Demint) Foreign born people residing in the United States at the time of a population survey who were not U.S. citizens at birth in 2012 were reported to be 4.2% born in Africa, 29.2% born in Asia, 11.8% born in Europe, 52.2% born in Latin America including South America, Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean, 2.0% born in Northern America including Canada, Bermuda, Greenland, St. Pierre, and Miquelon. (Migration) The top three countries from which illegal immigrants were reported to have been originally born in are Mexico, India, and China. (Migration) With illegal immigration becoming more common by the years you can only imagine how much those numbers have increased. Having illegal immigrants in the U.S. and how to deal with the productive and government fee-conflicting immigrants can cause much controversy on whether they hurt or help our economy. Pardoning the offense against our government to those who break the law and putting them on a path to become citizens of our law-based nation would be unfair; also it would just impose more unacceptable behavior and major...

Immigration is a growing problem in this country. It is our job as its natural born citizens of this country to take care of our own people first. We need to figure out own problems out before we adopt other countries and people’s, or else we will not be able to take care either one.

Along with that they also take those people government benefits too, and above all they can be dangerous to the American population regardless if they are legal or illegal.

Blood, sweat, bones, and human flesh all over the Rio Grande border. Thousands of immigrants pass through yet some are not so luck of making it oust alive. Majorities that pass thru are families that have small children with them. You may wonder why go through all this trouble?

Illegal immigration should be allowed because their quality of life is improved, they help the economy, and they bring job growth.
