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.
Immigration is nothing but good for the United States, immigrants do not come to just take away from us, they come and also provide for this country. They are hard workers looking to succeed in any field of work as long as they are earning money and helping out. They are investing the money they earn here in the U.S, most of their money comes back to the U.S economy. High skilled immigrants are more likely to pay for more taxes than they use in public services. Immigrants do pay and taxes, and not all use government services.
Many are forced to immigrate illegally. The United States has created many precautions to stop people from immigrating to the United States, but thousands of people still continue to move to the US illegally. As a result, millions of dollars are spent from tax payers’ money on illegal immigrants. While illegal immigration is beneficial to the United States, it comes with costs and therefore has become an issue that has grown out of control. The amount of illegal residents that now reside in the United States has grown rapidly over the last few years.
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.
Another negative effect is that many industries pay illegal immigrants a lower wage saving money on the higher wages a native would earn. Even though illegal immigrants bring some rewards the overall negative effects of lower wages, tax burdens, and less available jobs is why illegal immigration should be stopped. In some ways illegal immigrants do contribute to the economy. They generate extra income for our economy but do lower some wages (Hanson). Illegal immigrants generate extra income because their labor increase brings an increase in output which leads to more income for U.S. businesses (Hanson).
They say that more and more Americans are unemployed because of illegal immigrants reason why is because illegal immigrants work for less money and more hours. So that means that more Americans would be unemployed and more undocumented allies would be employed. Another pro to deportation would be that undocumented aliens add to the population. More people add to the crowded buses or trains also students that are grated scholarships are illegal immigrants and it’s not favorable for American citizens. In fact, “Illegal immigration also costs money unauthorized aliens who get sick or give birth on American soil have to be given medical attention even without insurance and money to cover for hospital bills at the expense of American
The largest companies in the United States are finding that there are workers that are just as qualified in other countries that do not require as much pay. The article Vanishing Jobs says, “Nationally, layoffs are eliminating jobs far beyond blue-collar workers... in the ever shrinking manufacturing sector” (Katel). This quote interprets the idea that business will do anything to make a greater profit through cutting costs. Most politicians say that the issue behind job loss in the United States is because of lack of education. This to some point is true; however, the evidence provides the information to conclude that the degree holders are mostly the ones losing their jobs because of the higher wage that is obtained by the degre... ... middle of paper ... ...ect on the college graduates and younger children of today.
They help the economy by allowing the High skilled workers have more time for their job and increasing the productivity in High skilled jobs. Some people say that Illegal immigrants harm low wage workers, “High levels of immigration hurt U.S. citizens in the job market. Because the number of jobs available in this country is finite, every immigrant who takes a job is technically either throwing a native-born American out of work or blocking the hiring of an unemployed citizen. The effect of this is seen at all levels of American society, but most clearly among the poor. “(Currie 34).
Illegal immigration has been an ongoing problem in America for many decades. The form of law that currently governs the immigration process is, the Immigration and Naturalization Act, and it has been broken for many years as immigrants still continue to pour into the states illegally. The immigration acts enacted in the past that have been continuously modified leads up to the current policy that falls under the Incrementalism model. However, it is important to note that the current American Immigration system is broken and is in dire need of reform. There are 11 million people living in the dark and too many employers cheating the system by hiring undocumented workers in exchange for offering lesser pay.
“ Willing to work for low wages, the migrants are creating a backlash among some residents of the new states, which have seen a nearly tenfold increase in illegal immigration since 1990 .” ( Katel, Peter “Illegal immigration”). These illegal immigrants just want to live in this country, they are mostly working for cash, and they provide cheap labor. Illegal immigrants willing to work on low-paying jobs just to live in this country, as it is stated in the article “ While illegal immigrants only make up about 5 percent of the U.S. workforce, critics of the nation 's immigration policies say illegal immigrants take Americans ' jobs, threaten national security and even change the nation 's culture by
