Debating Illegal Immigration Trying to figure out an issue that has been affecting the United States for many years we ask ourselves does illegal immigration really affect our everyday lives? Although many of us have very different views about this issue it’s very hard to come to try and figure out what works best.

This is something that affects not only Latino families but many different races in the world trying to get into the United States illegally for a better life and a better future for our families. So much news surrounds us about how this has been a problem with many different laws in the country so much controversy about which laws will work and the reasons why we must put these laws into place.
