United States is a very enormous country and so immigration becomes a huge concern for the country. People prefer to shift to United States in order to feel the liberal lifestyle, and the prosperity that America is known for. United States has millions of immigrants who are both legal and illegal. America needs to create new job opportunities and vacancies for the people moving in the nation and also the citizens of the nation. Much of the mess in the nation is caused by immigrants.
Analyzing various economic factors would help create a reliable framework for tackling debates on immigration in the United States. People of a nation could be forced out of their native land because of conflict, escape from persecution due to crimes or voluntarily based on personal desires and objectives. On the other hand, people could migrate to a more developed country in search of greener pastures so as to better their living. Many developing countries are currently facing devastating economic challenges resulting from the revolutionized framework of globalization and many other unfavorable policies and regulations. Such problems trigger frustration and pressure on citizens forcing them to flee to other countries with better economic standards so as to meet their needs comfortably.
Undoubtedly, the correlation between immigration and crime has become one of the most controversial discussions in current society. As we enter a new era, immigrants will have more impact on society than ever before (Feldmeyer, 2009). There can be numerous reasons to believe immigrants are more prone to commit crimes, for example, they have to learn to adapt into the cultural traits and social patterns of the harboring country, as natives do not (Desmond & Kubrin, 2009). However, despite such claims, empirical studies have revealed that immigrants are understated in criminal statistics. Throughout the years many texts and scholarly articles have been published further analyzing and proving that immigrants are less prone to committing crimes than their native peers.
Hence, many try to get into America through ill means, crossing the border that separates America and Mexico illegally.

Coming to the United States is seen as an advantage to get ahead in life for most other countries. When they take advantage of breaking the system it effects the citizens more so than it does them. There are several people who came here and worked hard to get their citizenship the legal way. When it seems the government is letting them get away with breaking the law it attracts more people to come here illegally. Illegal immigration refers to the action of people migrating across the national borders in such a way that is in violation of the migration laws of the country or state in question.
In this second scenario, several issues, problems, and potential dangers arise. The two scenarios laid out are illustrations of immigration in the United States. The first scenario when the guests were expected and invited illustrates legal and legitimate immigration where immigrants take the proper and legal channels to be in the United States. The second scenario illustrates illegal immigration. This paper focuses on illegal immigration and discusses how illegal immigration is an expensive financial burden to the United States, and therefore instead of trying to find ways to legitimize the citizenship status of illegal immigrants, the government should have more stringent policies that discourage illegal immigration, strengthens border security, and improves the avenues required for lawful immigration.
While immigration for our country is good the ability to become a legal citizen has become insanely hard therefore leading immigrants to illegally cross our border, which negatively impacts our country. Immigration is positive for our country’s economics although illegal immigration is negatively impacting our country. Resolved to join the American way of life a large number of outsiders have ventured to this extraordinary land to have an existence based upon “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Determined to join the American lifestyle thousands of immigrants have journeyed to this great land to have a life based upon “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” This country’s backbone is immigration and it started when this
Decreasing Restriction of Immigration Flow in the United States In the19th century, the fundamental of philosophy and policy was free trade. Freedom of movement was generally seen as an essential part of it. It was the best way to insure individuals that labor would be spread evenly among various geographical areas so that it was most useful for private and social prosperity. However, today the philosophy is the same but it is not any more followed by the policy that is the policy of trade and migration restrictions. Through the time as immigration rates raised every year, the life became harder for some Americans and strong opposition of free trade appeared with upcoming problems caused by immigrants, these problems are the main arguments in hands of opposition saying that the uncontrolled immigration harms the United States and individual citizens.
The risk of terrorist attacks means tighter border control and increased fear of people who are ideologically different. The decisions leaders make concerning immigration reflects the ideals of their citizens. While people may want immigrants to go back to their countries, many immigrants have made a life for themselves and their families and do not see their native countries as “home”.
Many American citizens, although immigrants themselves, began to see newcomers as a problem. Fear for the stability of the economy, of the spreading of diseases, and of foreign culture disrupting American ideals were among some of the concerns. Prejudices also developed as a result of legal citizens seeing themselves as better than the average immigrant. Fortunately, these fears did not develop into anything more substantial than minor regulations until the beginning of the twentieth century. Strict laws were soon put into effect, some more severe than others, in an attempt to stop or at least slow the number of immigrants coming to America.
