Immigration The issue on illegal immigrants has been facing America over so many years “What is illegal immigration? This is the migration of foreigners to a country who are not legally eligible to migrate or extend their stay for more than a given period yet they refuse to leave. According to the United States Department of Home Security, people involved in illegal immigration are those non US residents who either crossed the borders without inspection or people who are given visas to stay for a while but instead of leaving, they overstay.” There is no reliable count of illegal immigration.

Some people have been here for a long time and deserve to be treated right and give them an opportunity to grow and have a good peaceful life in the US. THE CRUDEST WAY of assessing the value of immigration is to look at the countries that have received large numbers of immigrants, and ponder whether this has done them much harm. The world 's dominant economy, and one of the richest, is the United States - a country populated almost entirely by immigrants and their descendants. The US population has more than doubled over the last century, yet the country has become wealthier and wealthier.
