A good plan to get rid of illegal immigrants in the U.S. will remove illegal immigrants in a very feasible way, and would not cost our country a fortune. Illegal immigrants have been a problem lingering in the U.S. for many years now. In the recent past, Americans just started noticing how illegal immigrants living in the U.S. can cause many problems. A shocking statistic is that 1/3 of all federal and state prisons are filled with illegal immigrants. The problem with this is that it is costing American tax payers $1.6 billion annually.
Mexican Immigrants and American Society America has a reputation for being known as “the land or the free” or “the great melting pot” which insinuates that this country is the land of opportunity, and we accept all immigrants with open arms. Although, that may have been the case when foreigners passed through Ellis Island; times have changed and the open arms of immigration have not been available to all of foreign decent in present times. In the case of Mexican immigration, Samuel P. Huntington, a professor from Harvard, writes about the negative effects that foreigners give our country in his article, The Special Case of Mexican Immigration. The important issue conveyed from his article is that if immigration—specifically Mexican—continues,
States along the U.S. - Mexican border are plagued with detrimental repercussions of illegal immigration. One instance of this is the debt that many hospitals have fallen into due to emergency care of illegal aliens. Obviously if the immigrant is undocumented they do not have healthcare, therefore illegal immigrants rely on emergency room services as their form of “insurance.” Because of this high occurrence, it is getting progressively more difficult for hospitals to stay out of monumental debt. Daniel Pompeo, chairman of the Washington Legal Foundation stated that, “More than 12 million illegal aliens residing in the U.S. are bankrupting our hospitals…15 hospitals in the city of Los Angeles alone have been driven to close their doors because of being forced to care for illegal immigrants,” (McManus 1). The extremely high number of illegal immigrants living in the United States is frustrating to U.S. citizens who pay taxes and have health insurance.
Just this past year a controversial law SB1070 was signed by Arizona’s governor, were local police have the power to stop anyone on reasonable suspicion that is an illegal immigrant. They have the right to arrest them if they don’t have any documentation such as a driver’s license, work permit, or resident card that shows legal status. The biggest objection of this law is racial profiling and how police can just arrest anyone by race or culture. Arizona population for Illegal’s is an estimate amount of a half a million people. The estimate of people could have been around for years since youth or with in the
Their article addresses various points about the issues with Mexican immigrants and jobs dealing with the Mexican border. Americans look at immigrants as a threat and a burden on the US economy even if they are Mexican immigrants they should have the same rights as a U.S. citizen and be viewed equally. The U. S. is cracking down on the border to keep immigrants out of America when “undocumented immigrants represented approximately 4 percent of the U.S. population” (165). There are still immigrants in the U.S. who are
Unlawful War The battle over immigration in the United States has been going on for years; today the big issue is illegal Latinos living in our country. Many laws have been passed to control the increasing number of illegal aliens that are entering our country, but all have failed to eliminate the problem. Jan Brewer, governor of Arizona, passed a law allowing law enforcement officers to arrest any immigrant with “reasonable suspicion” of being in the country illegally. The law known as Senate Bill 1070 or SB 1070 for short has caused an uproar throughout the nation. Not only will the law condone racial profiling, raise constitutional issues, and political problems, but it sets the stage for other states with immigration problems to follow.

Because of what economists call the specialization of labor,” (Krayewski 2014). Whether non supporters know this or not, immigrants help them out too. With that being said, it leads krayewski to his second reason which is that illegal immigrants already pay taxes. This article states that “In 2006 and estimated eight million illegal immigrants (up to two thirds of the total) paid taxes. Indeed revenue from illegal immigrants is estimated at eleven billion a year to social security alone, and there’s not even a pretense of those payments leading to eventual benefits (Krayewski 2014)”.
One of the most controversial social and economic problems in the U.S. today is immigration reform and illegal immigration. With the most recent studies done by the Pew Research Center, as of March 2012 there are 11.7 million illegal immigrants residing in this country (Nakamura) Out of these 11.7 million, it was estimated a year before that 198,000 reside in San Diego county (Lee, “Estimated 198,000 illegal immigrants in SD County"). These illegal immigrants range from single migrant workers to whole families who are here on overstayed working visas. Although there are many sides of the illegal immigration problem, one the main disputes is the education of these illegal immigrant children. Public education is considered a right for every
Senate Bill 1070 originated because of the large number of Mexican (illegally) immigrants that migrated to Arizona over the last ten years. The Pew Research Center reported that a large portion of Mexican immigrants are against immigration enforcement laws. Pew Hispanic Center reported in 2008 survey verified that 30% of the state of Arizona population is made up by Mexican immigrants and approximately 94% of 500,000 illegal immigrants are currently residing in
