The reason so many Mexicans migrate illegally into the US is because of conditions in Mexico. Mexico’s population is increasing rapidly with a projection of 135 million by the year 20251. Mexico’s agricultural output does not meet the needs of a rising population. The majority of families can not grow enough to feed their own families. Mexico maintains a close to 25% unemployment rate. Those who do work, work for very low wages, and some families survive on money that undocumented immigrants send home from the United States.
There are over twelve million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Many came to America to work, go to school, or be reunited with family members who are already residing here. Most migrants want to work and pursue the “American dream”. There are many barriers for residents to achieving success at the work and life balance. The immigrants fall back on public assistance to support them.
In today’s society there are a number of issues that may affect a number of Americans. One issue that is a big topic in today’s society is the issue of Illegal Immigration. Whether we should grant illegal’s driver’s licenses, amnesty, deport them, how it affects the U.S. economically, and some might even consider them as terrorists. Those are just a few topics that we may hear being brought up. It is possible to see this touchy subject on television, or it may be a debate at school, or you may read about it in the newspaper. It is a subject that catches alot of peoples’ attention and some might not even care to touch on the subject because of the repercussion.
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.
Border enforcement has its results: recent numbers show, that fewer immigrants from Mexico are crossing the border than they have in decades and the ones who do, are mostly people who lived in the U.S. for decades. They are the seasoned crossers, who confidently say, that nothing will stop them from coming back. Some might attribute the decline to other factors, such as the recession in the United States and unfavorable economic climate. Nevertheless, even as the economy has improved, illegal immigration continues to go down.
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. More people out of country are trying to stay in the U.S. However, this is not an easy process to deal with. There is an immigrant policy that they have to go through. In the past, United States is wide open for people to settle down on this land. There is no process of immigrants. However, in the middle of 1840 to 1880, immigrants started to come in the U.S. such as Irish and Chinese because of demanding of unskilled and cheap labors. In the 1920, automation replaced unskilled labors as a result immigrant’s policy is limited quotas for immigrants
Immigration is a widespread problem these days. You may ask yourself what immigration means. It means to move to other country for purpose of job or permanent settlement. Illegal immigration comes into focus when people do not follow guidelines during the immigration process. For example, an abundant of paper work is required to receive immigration rights and much more.
Throughout America’s history, there has been a large number of immigrants of many different backgrounds. Diversity is something that we Democrats embrace, however we must also acknowledge that alterations must be made to our immigration policy. We do not want to exclude anyone out of a country we are trying to make more effective and better economically wise, therefore improving our immigration system will not only help those who want an opportunity to live in the U.S but those living here already. The process of becoming a United States citizen costs $680 per individual. For those who plan to bring their families over from across the border or overseas, it can cost a few thousand dollars. Last fiscal year (October 1, 2012 - September 30, 2013), our border control officers apprehended over 420,000 people attempting to enter the United States illegally. Although there are illegal immigrants who already reside here, we want to prevent a dramatic increase in that existing number. We will focus more on giving a greater opportunity and a simpler, more effective procedure for those who wish to become citizens. To begin with, we will create an incentive to allow legal immigration and not have illegal measures at hand. We are looking to allow our immigration policy to focus on increasing our economy by looking for ways to grant more immigrants with advanced education levels that are needed by many domestic employers. We will allow legal immigration to grow in a safe and more successful way by suggesting to auction permits to employers that have demand-based minimum prices at only those costs. With this, we could raise the public revenues and create a market for permits making sure that immigrants will arrive with employment. The prices au...
In the United States, the topics of immigration and immigration reform are extremely controversial topics at this current time. Also since, the U.S. is known as a “Nation of Immigrants” and with the ongoing situation with the U.S. – Mexican border, the two topics are of heightened importance. From the readings it is mentioned quite a few times that are approximately 11 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. That is indeed a lot, if any country had that many illegal immigrants, I am sure they would want to do something about I; hence the immigration reform.
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. Rather than asking if this is right or wrong, a solution can be found. Illegal immigrants come here for a purpose and can be helped with this purpose. Most come fleeing persecution, although some come here for more demented reasons. Those, illegal immigrants will be done away with. However, Those immigrants who come here for pure reasons need to be taken Care of in proper
