In the U. S today, the approximated population of undocumented immigrants stands at averagely 11 million. Therefore, this has created a hot debate in Congress about the action to take over the undocumented immigrants. Those opposed to illegal immigrants suggest that, their stay in the United States effects U.S citizens on the job market negatively . 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.
Illegal immigrants also hold jobs that would be undesirable and that most people wouldn’t want to work these jobs. Another thing to consider is that if all the illegal immigrants jobs were taken away “not all jobs would be taken by natives some would be automated or outsourced.” (Ruark) One negative of illegal immigration is that the immigrants take advantage of tax benefits.

The truth, however, is that President Bush's proposal actually helps maintain the security of American boarders. Also, in addition to the proposal, vast efforts are being made to secure U.S. boarders from terrorists. Boarder patrol has expanded and boarder protection funding has increased by 40 percent in the last two years.

This helped them live strong in America, because they already had an advantage over most other immigrant, because they were fluent in their home language, and the American language (American Immigration: Assimilation? If so, to What Degree?). This is good because, immigrants have brought so many other languages into America that it causes us to expand our knowledge and learn other languages.
Immigrants from every part of the world traveled to America bringing their culture, values, skills, and knowledge to America providing the necessary elements of becoming a diverse nation. Even those who were unskilled provided great contributions to America’s growth. People migrated to the United States as it was known to be the land of opportunity.
