United States is a nation of immigrants. Every year, millions of people enter the country and nearly one million people coming without authorization and overstay visas. The escalating number of undocumented immigrants comes into the country with the hope that their hard work and sacrifice will achieve a better life, yet they are breaking the law. Due to the influx flows of legal and illegal immigrants into the United States, it’s been the hot issue for every state that immigrants bring a huge impact to the nation and the lives of the Native American such as economic threats and jobs. The issue has been long debated enough, and people have demanded a change or a law, to crackdown for those responsible who disobeyed the law and allowing the unauthorized to stay and work in the country.
When he was asked whether he would favor the prohibition of the bilingual ballot, he simply stated, “Of course not.” Wills’ continues in the next section stating that our national identity and our federal laws are being weakened by immigration that is influenced by these bilingual ballots. He also uses this anecdote in the fourth section by showing how our laws are weakening. That these illegal immigrants are able to ask for bilingual ballots because the law is weakening and they are able to immigrate into the country in illegal ways without knowing how to speak English or know anything about our politics. Although the chief rhetorical aim of the article appears to be to inform Americans rather than persuade them as to why the bilingual ballot should be prohibited, why is Will not taking up a more serious tone if he felt so strongly about the
One is crossing the border illegally by land. Another way get into the US are by false identities or by stolen, or falsified passports. Another way is by illegal smuggling boats. “Others enter with legal documentation and then violate the terms on which they have been admitted by taking jobs that are not authorized or overstaying the authorized period of stay in the country” (Illegal Immigration) A bad side to having such a large amount of illegal immigrants in the nation is the crime rate and prison population caused by certain “illegals”. “Illegal immigration is a major cause in the overcrowding of our schools and our prisons.” (Bender, David) Michael Huffington, a former member of the US House of Reps. For California says that, “Many illegal immigrants come for two purposes that are both destructive and expensive: to commit crimes or to receive government benefits.” (Huffington, 63) “For instance, the 18th Street gang in Southern California is one of the nation’s most violent street gangs with a staggering 20,000 members.
Coming into the country illegally presents an issue, meanwhile repeated tax evasion of the nearly 21 million immigrants currently presiding in the United States makes for a hazardous dilemma. The Iraq War demands a high need for an increased revenue for the government and with the amount of money it could be receiving from annual taxes, it's a wonder this problem has not been corrected with conviction and zeal. Illegal Immigrants should not be allowed within this country. Currently there is approximately 62 border patrol population per 1,000 sq. miles; this clearly needs to be addressed.
Other citizens believe that immigration contributes to crime, poverty, and overcrowding. The outlook and policies on the topic of immigration have progressively changed during the last fifty years and the government is trying to limit the number of illegal immigrants to the United States by tightening borders, while reshaping current immigration policies to help legal immigrants to be productive contributors to society. The challenges immigrants create are can be argued, but it is important to understand that they do serve a purpose. Immigration offers the United States unique benefits that will allow us to be a more productive, competitive, and successful nation in the 21st century. America is a successful national power, whose economic growth and opportunities have attracted many people from all over the world to immigrate and start a new life.
Throughout the current wave of immigration, polls have consistently found that the public, at large, favors curbing immigration. African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans believe the levels of immigration are too high, as well as 90% think that illegal immigration is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" problem in the U.S. today (Miller). Another main statistic is that 81% think it is unfair to grant rights to illegal immigrants while thousands wait to come to the U.S. legally. However, a focus on this problem
Jim Gilchrist, MBA, CPA, Founder and President of The Minuteman Project, in an Aug. 26, 2005 speech titled “The Crushing Economic Burden of Illegal Immigration” said, “I’ve tried to figure out the costs since I have this tax background. What is the cost to each of us as taxpayers to support 30 million illegal aliens, many of whom are working in the underground economy and not contributing to the tax system? And yet they’re using the system that bona fide taxpayers provide and pay for…” (Gilchrist) United States immigration policy has, with a wink and a nod, encouraged the growth of a low rate sector that is supplied to a large degree by unauthorized workers. Perhaps employers and consumers are benefitting, but as citizens, Americans are abetting the growth of an underprivileged class. Research shows that between 40 and 50 percent of wage loss among low skilled Americans is due to the immigration of low skilled workers.
It has been stated enforcing SB 1070 is costing Arizona over 141 million dollars. Additionally, Arizona’s financial crisis must endure the boycotts, protests, uprisings, court litigations, and economic sanctions to repeal such a ridiculous law. According to Republican congressman Raul Grijalva, Arizona is in a bigger dark hole economically now than prior to the enforcement of SB 1070. Arizona has lost billions of dollars in trade retail sales, visitations, and tourism all from this law (Grijalva). In her research study conducted at the University of Arizona, Judith Gans concluded that the total fiscal cost of all immigrants was approximately $1.4 billion in 2004.
And will fight or help anyone together. So by us rejecting immigrants we are going against our constitution. We the people means all the people in the United States no matter where we are or where we come from if they are in the United States they are a part of us.“We the people” its not stating a specific race or ethnicity it is saying “all” so why discriminate against immigrants. We are only hurting ourselves saying we are not a country of our word and we are not united because we don't accept certain races. When other countries look at us and see how we treat illegal immigrants they say and that's what people call the world super power.
:D Illegal Immigration The population of the United States is roughly 300 million people; of those people, 11.2 million are illegal. Illegal immigrants (mostly Mexicans) bring with them crime, drugs, and cost the American government billions of dollars yearly. This can greatly decrease the value of a country’s economy. Legal immigrants are a key step to help any nation’s economy thrive and grow (mostly the white ones), but illegal immigrants hinder and dismantle it (mostly the black, brown, and yellow ones). Most illegal immigrants that cross into the U.S. come from Mexico (shocker).
