Nonetheless, not only is the US the closest border, but they need workers to better their economy as well. Migrants would like to enter the United States legally but it would be too costly for them to wait for sometimes years to hear whether or not they can. It is also a less hostile environment for children to live in. Unfortunately, the numbers of people applying is getting too large, causing America to take sometimes drastic measures in order to prevent legal United States citizens from losing their homes and jobs to illegals.
(Harvard Magazine) Still, currently in the twenty first century, immigrants are accused of stealing jobs from Americans. Reforms have been made according to Harvard magazine but are not really getting much attention from the governments. At the present day more than ever, the amount of expulsion cases has gone up 85%. Immigrants are concerned for the reason that the government is fashioning more laws against immigration (Fo... ... middle of paper ... ...he American dream. The immigration of Mexicans is not as bad as most people put it out to be.
I hope that this essay has taught you that Immigration isn?t awful, but that is good on the economy and some people?s wallets too. As I said in my opening paragraph if you don?t like immigration then remember this never I mean, never go on a trip to Mexico, Europe, Asia and so on because you would be the biggest hypocrites alive. Don?t say no to immigration because if you do they will keep coming, and coming, and coming, just kidding but I beg you remember Immigrants are just like you and me just with a different skin color (maybe) and a diverse language.
Illegal immigrants learned how to adjust to the lifestyle of the United States and several of them managed to avoid the immigration officers. Although they are not liked by many, illegal immigrants have both a negative and a positive influence in this country. Therefore, illegal immigrants who had been living in the United States for more than ten years should not be deported because they pay taxes, their labor helps the economy, and the government is wasting money deporting people. Several American citizens are angry that illegal immigrants come to this country because they think that all the illegal immigrants are here to take advantage of all the benefits they can get and work here without paying taxes. According to Rick Sanchez republican Rick Murphy “have a beef with illegal immigrants because some immigrants come here to collect money from the government and not pay any taxes”.
The issue has yet to be resolved because of the conflicted attitudes that the public and politics have towards illegal immigrants. The current Immigration Law disadvantages mexican immigrant families by deporting parents, forcing them to leave their children behind. In order to fix the problem we must establish a new immigration law that protects families by giving them amnesty. At an early stage the law presented concerns which constantly required new reform. During the 18th and early 19th centuries, Americans encouraged free and open immigration until the late 1800’s when the population of immigrants rose and the economy was heading a downfall.
The Center for Immigration Studies estimates are very different from other estimates that range from 7 to 20 million, the estimates are bit off due to the fact that, Immigrants have no papers, so the government can’t keep track of them for that reason. Having illegal immigrants in our nation can be detrimental to our society in many ways. The controversial reasons why it’s detrimental are because, it can take a toll on our economy, and we can’t keep track of how many people are in our country. Barack Obama has declared that “immigration reform is an economic imperative”, and is promising to do his best to get an immigration bill pushed through Congress this year. Illegal immigration has been a problem for America, and it
Overall the American immigration system hurts the economy because the country is not bringing is highly skilled workers; instead they are bringing in under skilled and high-risk immigrants. The only way that the economy can be boosted is if American politicians put their party lines behind them and pass proper immigration bill. Congress has been dragging their feet for the last twenty years because parties are afraid of losing control. Congressional bills aimed at reforming immigration could cut the waiting time for immigrants who are waiting for their green cards. The reform bills such as those recommended by the Jordan Commission would have significantly reduced the wait time for receiving a green card but political lines caused the bill to fail.
Patrick Jackson Dr. Doyle ENG101-S4 08 October 2014 Protect Our Borders The United States and Mexican border has been the focus of an abundant amount of controversy the past decade in the States. The border wall, or border fence, is one of several barriers preventing illegal Mexican and South American immigrants from entering the United States. However, as statistics prove, immigration and drug smuggling has been on the rise the past few decades and our “three prong approach” is not confronting the escalating issue at hand. America’s border security is not resilient enough to deter these illegal immigrants and drug smugglers; our border wall must be fortified immediately. The Mexican-American border barriers were originally built as part of a three-pronged approach to diminish illicit contraband, drug smuggling, and illegal immigrants.
Illegal immigration from Mexico must be stopped by means of different policies and other methods of prevention, because the effects on both Mexico and the United States are predominately unfavorable. There are multiple policies and means of preventing illegal immigrants from entering the United States. Immigration laws are the back bone of illegal immigration prevention. Proposition 187 is a tough immigration law clamping down on illegal aliens, used in California. It doubled the number of boarder guards, made it harder for legal immigrants to bring their families over, not permitting as much political help and was harder on illegal aliens already here (DiConsiglio 3).
