Illegal immigration is a major problem in the United States, as it causes economic problems and negatively affects homeland security. Illegal immigration causes population increase, which in turn, results in a decrease in job opportunities, increased pressure on the few available resources, and more cases of criminal activity in the country. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needs to push for stringent policies and measures to enhance border security and prevent illegal immigration into the country. Illegal immigration into the United States leads to an unchecked and unplanned for increase in the country’s population. Population increase is not necessarily a problem, but it becomes an issue when too many people rely on the country’s limited resources such as food, education facilities, and health care, which are meant to help poor citizens who cannot manage to pay for them.
In addition, illegal immigrants are viewed in certain quarters as takers in the sense that illegal immigrants benefit more from public resources than the american-born citizens of the U.S. However, the reality is that immigrants contribute positively to the U.S economy and pay significantly into the system compared to what they send back home. In addition, the contributions associated with undocumented immigrants involve sustaining the solvency of the SSTF (Social Security Trust Fund). In this sense, the use of cost benefit analysis by those supporting immigration restrictions are unfounded and do not reflect the facts on the ground (Nadadur 1037). The opponents of undocumented immigrants believe that having more undocumented immigrants in the U.S is costly; however, there are no solid reasons to prove that undocumented immigrants are a burden to the treasury.
Sometimes they even still others social security numbers. Illegal immigrants some not all sometimes bring drugs into the USA which I think is the most dangerous thing they can do besides kill. One problem in today 's society is people view all immigrants as labor workers. People tend to believe that immigrants "threaten" American life by causing unemployment. Employers think that they are doing us a big favor by hiring immigrants for under wage and not hiring people that are born in the USA cause we do not like to be worked for under the state law of minimum
With the government cannot completely control illegal immigration over the border, the security of legal citizens is at risk. All things considered, with the powerlessness to control and completely carry out the laws of immigration, potential criminals will constantly barge into the nation and further jeopardize the U.S. lives. Although crime and terrorism has increased because of the absence of carrying out immigration policy, illegal immigration has caused the most effect on the economy. Most people think that illegal immigrants make the country more efficient and do jobs that U.S. citizens do not want to do. Although the truth is that these illegal immigrants are taking legal citizens jobs.
The three main reasons they become invisible victims are they are not aware they are victimized, they don't know the right way to ask for help and they are afraid to be fired or even deported. Illegal immigrants in the United States usually come from less developed countries or at least poorly developed regions of these countries. These illegal immigrants carry a totally different knowledge of culture, legal system and human rights when they came into this country. The most these people are victimized is when they are working, sometimes, these people can't even realized when they have become victims. Because of their status, illegal immigrants, it is very rare that they can find good positions in considerably big companies to start with.
Immigration in the United States The immigration patterns of the United States have fluctuated over the years, some years having little while others see a rising amount of immigrants, both legal and illegal, looking for opportunities to improve their lives. The amount of illegal immigration is a problem since many take advantage of the social services provided by the government without contributing towards the country since they are not citizens and many people see these illegal immigrants as a threat to their employment. Illegal immigrants do affect the U.S negatively in a number of ways, but if those illegal immigrants were to have a safe passageway towards gaining citizenship, the immigrants would contribute greatly towards the country. With much of the immigration system broken, it affects many aspects of the U.S, the economy being the most affected; however, steps are being taken to improve the immigration system and help the immigrants gain legal citizenship in the U.S One of the major aspects of the U.S that is affected by immigration is the economy, there are various opinions surrounding what immigration is doing to the economy, some positive and some negative. If the amount of immigration were to be kept and a large amount of unskilled labor were hired, the cheap labor supply would cause wages of native born Americans to fall ,but consumer goods would fall in price also, meaning the economy would improve.
Having illegal immigrants in the U.S. and how to deal with the productive and government fee-conflicting immigrants can cause much controversy on whether they hurt or help our economy. Pardoning the offense against our government to those who break the law and putting them on a path to become citizens of our law-based nation would be unfair; also it would just impose more unacceptable behavior and major... ... middle of paper ... ...e there are a great amount of Americans willing to do the jobs. (Ambrosek) The biggest problem about this situation is that not only are illegal immigrants taking these jobs but they are allowing the employers to keep the minimum wage low. If no one would allow the pay to be low, employers would be forced to raise the minimum wage to acquire workers thus benefiting those who would willingly take the jobs. (Ambrosek) As long as immigrants keep working high labor jobs and not complaining or taking a stand on the low pay it will remain the same.
Illegal immigration is major issue concerning many Americans today. The overflow of illegal immigrants and lack of deportation can affects United States in a big way. Today, the solutions being proposed seem to be ineffective, but if all the solutions are put into effect together a difference can be made. Illegal immigration is an issue that can be solved and be beneficial for both U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants who enter the United
Frankly, most do not. Immigration can be looked at through two different sets of eyes, from one person?s point of view, they may see immigration as being a horrible attribute to obtain because they would say how all the immigrants are taking jobs U.S citizens might need and they may think that I immigrants are over populating the United States. Through someone else?s eyes immigration can be looked at as a good thing because immigrants tend to take jobs the average American may not want. Both point of views contain very good points but still make it difficult to decide if immigration should become legalized or stay illegal without the proper paper work.
This could be a factor why the immigrants are taking advantage of these working opportunities that the Americans don’t. Immigrants taking jobs is another factor that hurts the unemployment. All this chaos with the government providing false information gives people second thought in how the government actually functions. What if the government works under “the buddy system”. Where is this going to end?
