Is true that Arizona and many other states have been struggling with the illegal immigrants but there can be some other healthier way to prevent this from happening. The immigration problem will always be there, it is something that has been happening over the years, and this country has evolved because of it. We have so many different cultures in our country and it is all because of our ancestor who came in to this country as illegal to find the opportunities that everyone searches for in their life. Why think of it as a bad way, some people can come here and do some bad but it doubles out for the
Some debates talk about citizenship, border security, driver's license, mass deportations, threats, economic burdens, and higher crime rates. For example, in America, 72% of legal citizens oppose allowing illegal immigrants the ability to obtain a driver's license (Miller). Other problems create disadvantages towards American citizens and workers, such as the Southwest seeing an increase in mass murders, sexual assaults, kidnappings, shootings, armed robberies, burglaries, and more, most being tied to illegal immigration (Greenblatt). These problems further drain public budgets and intensify competition for jobs, social services, and low-cost affordable housing because of the congestion in cities and towns that involve minorities, the homeless, everyday citizens, and both legal and illegal immigrants. Throughout the current wave of immigration, polls have consistently found that the public, at large, favors curbing immigration.
What is illegal immigration you ask? Well it is when an unauthorized or undocumented alien from another country crosses the national border in a way that violates the immigration laws of this country. In today’s world we are faced with the problems of illegal immigration, what we don’t know is that this actually cost us money. As of today we have eleven million illegal aliens in our United States, some of these 6,640,000 are from just Mexico alone. Mexico is one of our big illegal immigration problems we are faced with.
Illegal immigration has been an important and serious issue for decades; which affects everyone, both Americans and immigrants themselves. Illegal Immigration has three main purposes: first to find a better life in the “promise land”, second: free healthcare, and third: for criminal activity. Most illegal immigrants come to America with the best intentions for themselves and/or their families, but many others have alternative motives. The thing that must be remembered is that illegal immigration is illegal. It’s all in the name.
America’s primary goal is national security and when thousands of illegal immigrants travel into the U.S. each year, any one of those illegal immigrants could have plans to wreak havoc on this country. Gang members could be affiliated with terrorist groups who have ill-intentions for America, jeopardizing public safety (I’d rather my pink Caddy not have bullet holes in it). Along with the violence, illegal immigrants take jobs away from legal residence (right about here is where I ran out of stuff to say so I B.S.-ed it to make it longer, just bein’ honest). It’s proven that illegal immigrants are more likely to do lower paying jobs that involve more labor than legal Americans, but in the long run those jobs would be filled by previously un-employed citizens. This would strengthen America’s economy in the long run and reduce how much the government pays out to
Delgaudio, Sterling District Supervisor of Loudoun County, Virginia, in a July 17, 2007 statement offered the following: “Illegal immigration is taking a greater and greater toll on this community... While lax federal and state enforcement allows the problem to develop, local government is also at fault when it rewards law-breakers with access to free taxpayer-funded services. Giving away free services to people whose very presence is a felony is unfair to people who obey the law. More and more of their own money goes to support lawbreakers and subsidized increasing problems of overcrowding, litter and gang crime. It's an insult to native-born taxpayers and taxpayers who took the time and effort to come here legally.
Illegal Mexican Immigrants Raven Reed Dr. Stephen Kenealy PAD 590 D R P June 3, 2012 Introduction This section will detail how and what immigration laws and policies the United States are using to help reduce or control the problem of illegal immigration. There are many regulation, policies and laws in place to help prevent, limit or eventually stop illegal immigrants from migrating to America. The impetus of illegal immigration deterrence starts with efficient and effective of immigration laws and regulations. Senate Bill 1070 (Arizona), Proposition 187 (California) and Hammon-Beason 56 (Alabama) are just some of the controversial immigration bills designed to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants from migrating to America primarily focusing on illegal Mexican immigrants. Both articles are detailing laws and regulation on the issue of illegal immigration whether or not the laws are created by the state or federal government.
American Indians, African American and Asian Americans are some of the larger racial minorities in U.S. history. It is listed that African Americans average population is 12.9%. Asian Americans are at 4.6% today but that amount is changing rapidly. There are around 500,000 people that enter this country legally from Mexico every year, but at least 500,000 more cross the border illegally. It is said about 61% of all those who enter the
Illegal immigration is becoming a problem in the United States. When asked what should be done about illegal immigration, most people would say, deport them. While this is a solution it is not a practical one. A solution to illegal immigration is to start billing those counties for the services provided to illegal immigrants in the United States. This is the right choice because if, for example, Mexico is charged for the serves then they may be more willing to fix their own county to make it a more reasonable choice to stay.
Why are prisons bursting at the seams? According to Joe Romaine of the International Business Times, it is because of America’s “insane drug laws,” which are doing more harm than good (Romaine). Many people may argue that drug offenders are getting what’s coming to them— they broke the law, and therefore it is part of their consequence to suffer through the overcrowded “cruel and unusual” incarceration. Individuals who argue this point are mistaken because although criminals should indeed receive punishment for their actions, there comes a time when a line of propriety is crossed. The ‘war on drugs’ has become a harsh and unnecessary measure that frankly costs American taxpayers far too much money.
