This time I made it and here I am! (qtd. in Limón) The travel that illegal immigrants have to come to the United States is as hard as their life back home, but as soon as they settle down, their quality of life will start to improve. Not only do immigrants come here for a better life, but they also happen to improve the economy in U.S. upon crossing
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. The current system is hurting the economy and bringing down our country as a whole. Out of the 11 million illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States, 8 million of them are currently working. Employers in America who want inexpensive workers, hire illegal immigrants and pay them under the table. Since the system does not have an efficient way of identifying and penalizing these employers, this has been an ongoing dilemma.
Nowhere else in the world does an invisible line draw such a disparity in wealth and lifestyle. Our border with Mexico divides one of the West's richest countries with a struggling third world economy. The nature of the border presents many unique issues; Mexican refuges looking for a better life here in America, Mexican drug lords exporting drugs to drug savvy America, American jobs going overseas for cheaper labor, as well as the integrating of our two cultures. Mexican immigration is a liability in our country, for reasons that I will state. Yet despite its threat to the American way of life and economy, many powerful elites believe in amnesty because: it drives down labor costs (but they forget to mention workers wages as well), it is "racist" (or at least many political figures will have you believe), and it is a huge untapped constituency.
In this essay I will discuss Globalization ruining the integrity of many countries and also is forcing many undeveloped nations into a bind, and is causing economic distress on some developed nations. Also, due to economic globalization the nations of the world are diluting their culture, sovereignty, natural resources, safety and political system. My goal is not to change your way of thought, but only to enlighten you of the negatives of global economic expansion. Now, before I bash globalization it is some positive I would like to discuss. Globalization is great for the American economy; we can supply the world with our goods and services, which in turn can possible, relieve the deficit we’re in.
Many people have come to America for a better life and to get away from all the troubles of their homeland. These immigrants, like those throughout U.S. history, are generally hard workers and make important contributions to the economy through their productive labor and purchasing power. America is considered a melting pot of many diffrent ethinic group. Immigrants should be able to enter America with little if any resistance from any border patrol. Immigrants in america take the low paying, hard labor jobs that , unfortunately, some americans don't want.
Overall, these benefits are far outweighed by the costs that the illegal immigrants bear on the US. An immigration reform is needed that the United States will maintain its economic power, and at the same time the reform will be beneficial to the illegal immigrants. The U.S. population predominantly is growing as a result of births in the immigrant and minority communities. Particularly when these low salary jobs do not present the language barrier to the illegal immigrants, they historically have jumped at these opportunities as a way to get their foot into the working class. The U.S. born unemployed do not think first about having just any job to help plant their feet.
In this sense, U.S. should not be compared with what worked for the country a century ago since it is not favorable for the country at present. As such, it is important for U.S to restrict illegal immigration as a way of promoting the future economic growth of the country (Davidson Para. 3). While tangible reasons exists for the need to cut on undocumented immigration, the benefits that illegal immigrants bring to the U.S economy still surpass the arguments against providing undocumented immigrants with legal status. The undocumented immigrants are found in all sectors of the U.S economy and their input needs to be recognized by providing them with legal status to work and improve the economy.
Illegal immigration is a major problem in the United States, as it causes economic problems and negatively affects homeland security. Illegal immigration causes population increase, which in turn, results in a decrease in job opportunities, increased pressure on the few available resources, and more cases of criminal activity in the country. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needs to push for stringent policies and measures to enhance border security and prevent illegal immigration into the country. Illegal immigration into the United States leads to an unchecked and unplanned for increase in the country’s population. Population increase is not necessarily a problem, but it becomes an issue when too many people rely on the country’s limited resources such as food, education facilities, and health care, which are meant to help poor citizens who cannot manage to pay for them.
A major national debate rages over U. S. government control of immigration and the impact foreign workers exert on the country’s economy. Sometimes the rhetoric reflects on the benefits but more often it focuses on the burdens being forced on society. While conversations range from bland indifference to outright hostility, the loudest and most incendiary opinions drown out the more moderate voices and dominate the tone and tenor of the dialog. Americans are uncertain about how immigration is affecting the US economy and this is apparent in the conversation. Most analysts, after considering all aspects, agree both legal and illegal immigrants produce a slight, yet positive, net gain of about one tenth of 1 percent in the gross domestic product.

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. The issues about legalizing illegal immigrant have caused a great disrupt in today’s society since people mostly have a negative connotation about legalizing illegal immigrant. People need to look at the economy as a whole rather than from an individual viewpoint in order to understand the benefits of immigrants in our economy.
