The subject of illegal migration into the United States is a very controversial and challenging issue; but overall America’s systematic approach for regulating illegal immigrants entering our country has failed. It pertains to millions of individuals and families journeying to the bulls-eye country of America without proper documentation; but it also consists of people entering the country legally, but they violate the terms of their approved visas and passports by permanently residing here, rather than the allotted time frame they’re given. Amazing enough, The Federation For American Immigration Reform or better known as FAIR, estimated that in 2007, “the illegal immigrant population seated well above 13 million people.” Also considering this massive number grows roughly by “as many as 500,000 people every year,” across the United States; therefore a more efficient way of controlling our population needs to be effectively put into action. But why would these aliens risk so much to inhabit and live in the United States? It doesn’t involve too much cognitive ability to understand that under the unsatisfactory circumstances of poverty, economic deficiencies, and high unemployment rates, many will do whatever it takes to pursue the American Dream.
There is already enough crime in the United States as it is and with the flooding of illegal immigration the crime rates keep growing larger and larger every day. Not all illegal immigrants come to the US to work or to better their families, sometimes they come to participate in criminal activity, or to leave their country because of trouble they have gotten into there. A U.S. government study reported that, "In our population study of 55,322 illegal aliens, we found that they ... ... middle of paper ... ...e legal residents of this state.

This major impact was mostly to do with the timing of the actual riot. There were only two days that separated the riot and the national election which impacted the voting of society. The negative impacts of the riot gave way to the equal rights that had shortly before been won after the Civil War.
For many years, people from all over the world have come to the United States seeking a better life for themselves, their spouse, their children and even their children's children. However, not every immigrant comes into this country legally and many of these illegal immigrants are poor, uneducated and may be carrying contagious diseases. They may arrive here via human trafficking, smuggling or other methods. There is one thing we know for sure that many of them choose to remain silence when they become victims.

The author of this article is not saying people from other counties should not be allowed in legally if they got through the right procedures. The big topic that this author is trying to get through to the audience reading this is that by illegal immigrants coming to this country they are taking jobs away from the Americans that always lived here. Henesywar states, “The truth is that by every illegal person acquiring a job, an American citizen is denied one. Or an illegal immigrant will obtain a job with a fewer pay rate than an American citizen would, so it forces the American citizen to lose his or her job leading to a situation we have seen before, the Great Depression.” This is true the immigrants coming here are willing to work for way less then Americans will and this only leads bosses to the least pay person over someone that is more qualified. There are some jobs that immigrants do that we don’t want to do because we please they are below us and not paid enough for the work you do.
