Nativists had many concerns regarding immigrants. They feared that immigrants would take the jobs of "native Americans" because they were willing to work for very low wages. When the native work force went on strike many workers feared that many immigrants would displace them in the workplace. Another concern was that immigrants were hard to "Americanize." These people came to American with their own culture, traditions, and language; many of them didn’t even know English.
As an effect legal immigration would make way for new jobs and if more people had more jobs they would more likely invest in the economy. Many immigrants remain illegal due to the long and rigorous applications and tests required to become a legal citizen. As well as hard tests, the fee to apply is a substantial amount especially for poor immigrants looking to immigrate for economic reasons (Swain). Many immigrants protest to lower fees to allow for a more efficient way to gain citizenship. Politicians debate on whether to lower fees often (EdTech).
The government must restrict immigration laws because of overpopulation of the United States. Immigration has been affecting America?s population for over two hundred years now. Back in the 1800?s, immigration was encouraged so that the New World could become prosperous. Today, some citizens have been worrying about how many more immigrants the United States can take in, while others do not really care because employers would rather pay lower wages to new immigrants or immigration does not seem to be affecting them in any way. It is impossible to stop all immigrants from coming to the United States, but the government can restrict the immigration laws to a certain extent (Kalla 2).
For many years, America has had a misconception of immigrants. Most Americans think them to be taking up space, money, and jobs, but that’s not it. U.S. born citizens have the wrong impression of immigrants, which technically has them judging themselves because all U.S. born citizens have a family background with at least one immigrant that came to the U.S., as stated in “Religious Issues in American Immigration,” “All Americans are immigrants” (Granquist). Even U.S. born citizens have a trace of immigration in their family history leaving them with no room to judge others. Americans have common misconceptions of a lot of things and immigration happens to be one of them.
Immigrants have been a problem in the United States due to increasing population and jobs being taking by foreign workers. Many seem to believe that immigrants are an issue in the country because of them not benefiting the economy. Which in reality all types of immigrants help out the country by hard work. Work is a enormous reason most of them come into the United States and them coming to work helps a handful of business and most important of all the economy. Although some believe that immigrants don 't affect the country in a positive way by being in the United States, Immigrants actually help out the economy by working and living like the rest of citizens.
The Hmong were also gobbling up Welfare and resources provided by a government that they didn’t even belong to. The Hmong were just trying to make a living for themselves but this was making many lower class Americans frustrated when trying to find a job to feed their families. Most of the Hmong populations in America now reside in California, Minnesota and Wisconsin. They have now adapted to a society and culture that looked down upon them. Even though they have adapted, they still possess the traditions and rituals that their ancestors practiced in Southeast Asia.
However, if they do not have money or unable to work in any reasons, it may create a lot of impacts on the country because the rate of unemployed workers is continually increased. Every country faces with this problem. Some countries are able to restrict it, particularly, in developed countries. However, in some lands are uncontrollable because of country’s social welfare is not good enough. This essay will argue that the government should distribute subsidies for some people who are able to work, but cannot find a jobs to reduce economic problems, improve the standard of living of the unemployed, and even reduce crime.
I believe people carry a fear when it deals with people that they cannot understand. After reading the article Why Migration it made me realize that people don?t always migrate to another country for lack of jobs or food. Migrating to another country could be the cause of persecution or no jobs that are available for what the community of people know how to do. The jobs they have always performed their whole life may have just been eliminated or moved to different areas of the world. According to the article it states that countries including Mexico and South Korea had increasing rates of Gross National Product during the 70?s and yet their rate of emigration was the highest.
