The U.S. govemment has faced the struggle for various decades to put an end to unauthorized immigration from Mexico and into the United States. Immigration as a whole has increased from 71,877,120 in 1960 to 213,316,418 in 2010 according to the data created and also reported by the World Bank. The government has made multiple attempts to stop the immigration process by implementing harsher measures along the U.S. and Mexico border and at work sites across the entire country. These measures however, have failed to end unauthorized immigration as a whole as immigrants still find a way to sneak by, settle, and make a living.. Americans who have a reason to oppose immigration argue that the safety and the strength of the nation’s economy are greatly threatened. However, strong supporters argue that instead of damaging and putting the economy at risk they provide a more stable environment.
Illegal aliens did serve a vital role in ... ... middle of paper ... ...they would pay to a legal worker. With almost no fear of prosecution from the United States government, as well as the government turning a blind eye for so many decades this cheap and renewable labor is an attractive alternative with almost no risk and higher returns for the employers to hire. With little disregard for the working class, the American government is partly to blame for the lack of appropriate funding of border enforcement and overlooking the illegal worker in exchange for their cheap labor. However, we the tax payers should not have to bare all the financial brunt of all of this. The Mexican government has played a huge role in the downfall of its own people; the aliens are trying to leave their home country to ours in search of a better life because of the corruption and poor economy which is not our problem, but it seems to be everyone's problem now.
Undocumented immigrants should not be deported and should be able to get at least a work permit because they contribute to the United States by having an impact to the economy, they do not commit as many crimes as you think, and the country spends too much money on border security. The word “illegal” has been used for several years to describe a person who is
It is no wonder that people come here illegally, when people who are model citizens like the thousands who apply for naturalization get denied and are sent back every year. Our broken immigration system is what I believe drives people to come here illegally. I think that we need to improve our immigration system to make it more affordable and a less exhausting process. In 2014, President Barrack Obama issued a series of executive actions regarding immigration reform. Unfortunately, they have been suspended by a federal court and will not be implemented.
As you can see, the issue of the border relating to immigration has never been straightforward. Instead of enforcing the laws of our country, exceptions were made during times of war which created problems that could not be overturned. Now we have illegal immigrants in our nation and any action is opposed by some special interest group. One of those groups is the Mexican government. Since the 1980's, and most prominently recently, the Mexican government has opposed our restriction of the border because their working class far overflows the few low paying jobs offered in the country.
A small percentage are actually that. Many of these people come to America leaving behind bad situations in their home country. They are looking to escape and start a better life, "Illegal immigrants are not terrorists. They want to come legally to do the jobs Americans don’t want, but our broken immigration system doesn’t allow that to happen.” Leading off of that, immigrants often take the jobs that many Americans don’t want. Yet, these jobs are still necessary.
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”.
Why can’t immigrants live a life in the United States? Everybody, every immigrant that comes to this country they come for a reason, they are seeking the "American Dream" as many of you may have heard. Immigrants come to the United States because they seek better pay and a better future for themselves and their families. All that they are trying to do is survive, just like anyone else in the world. Immigrant children are brought here to further their education, and they appreciate it more than some American children.
While they pay taxes and immigrants don’t, citizens see this as inexcusable. To support her stance, Brewer made it clear in “US v. Arizona” that, “allowing 80,000 illegals to claim public benefits will blow a hole in Arizona’s budget”, thus “Arizona voters have expressed their will in this matter in at least two votes, and indeed, elected Brewer largely based on the idea that they didn’t want to pay for benefits for illegals.” This shows that the bill for the law was not solely created from a legislator’s point of view. Those who are citizens do not condone the illegal behavior and want to take action. Seeing that this has been expressed in two votes in Arizona,
Some citizens believe that illegal immigrants should not be able to work in the United States for any reason, while others believe illegal immigrants are helpful to our economy. People against illegal immigration think jobs are being lost and this group has a growing voice in politics. The opposition against illegal workers feels it is eliminating opportunities for those who are already citizens. By permitting illegal immigrants to infiltrate this country, ignoring all of the procedures and systems that are in place to regulate, it is indeed committing an unfair and biased way of dealing with immigrants. (West 428) The legalization of illegal workers currently in the U.S. is not a good resolution to the illegal immigration issue because it is not a durable solution.
