Can you still live the American dream? The immigration in the United States has become more and more illegal. People are being smuggled every day into the country, only to live at better life, and to start all over, but the success is very limited, since the immigrants live in fear of being deported every day, so they live their live with a low-profile: staying out of trouble and working many hours every day for very low paycheck. Is this really a dream come true? At the moment, there are estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, and it only seems impossible to deport each and every one of them, since it would cost too much, and the idea itself sounds impossible.
Having such a high amount of money being spent on illegal immigrants can be extremely devastating to a hospital and in some cases has been the cause of many hospitals being forced to close because they cannot afford to stay open anymore. This is a very negative impact that illegal immigration has on the economy and overall wellbeing of America because they are stealing from tax payers. “Not only are Illegal Aliens being treated in the hospitals but undocumented citizens are likely to stay for a while because they have no family in the area and are unable to be discharged because of the lack of an address that the hospital
Most people who are against illegal immigration in the United States begin the base of their argument that they do not pay taxes. Citizens do not think its fair that everybody works and that people who enter the country illegally are paid but do not pay any taxes. On the other hand, each year,
This is not right, or rational that people would risk so much in order to come to the United States, to work a job that most American citizens will not work. Yet we are hateful and mean, protesting, these people rights to make a living and support their families, if the work wasn’t here they would not come. Do you think the Native Americans like what happened to them, when the first generation immigrated to American, many Native Americans are still suffering the effect of the colonization of America. Published in the Huffington post a video “Native American Man Tells Anti-Illegal Immigration Protesters Who 'The Real Illegal Immigrants Are’ it goes on to say that a Native American man tells protesters “We didn’t invite none of you here. We’re the only Native Americans here.”(Ramos Z 2013) Are the Americans that don’t support open borders scared, because they don’t want what happened to the Native Americans,
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)”. Although majority of immigrants pay taxes and support or economy they are not considered “United States citizens.” He also came to the conclusion that “immigrants would pay taxed if they didn’t have to worry about possible deportation as a consequence,” (Krayewski 2014). That is understandable, they should not have to live in fear of being deported for helping out a country that they are living in because they are not considered legal. In his third reason he points out that most illegal immigrants are law-abiding in the first place and how it would decrease the crime of crossing over, without authorization it is considered a misdemeanor. His reasoning for this is that “The vast majority want to stay in the country in order to work and so naturally steer clear of breaking any laws.” Which in most cases is true, immigrants are looking for a better life, a fresh start.
Immigration, damaging or helpful? Immigration has been a problem in the United States since before the country was established. Many citizens and politicians claim that illegal immigration is a hindrance to the country’s economy because immigrants take American jobs and that they don’t pay taxes. They also agree that our government spends too much money in keeping them out. People on the other side of this argument claim that immigrants help by taking unwanted jobs with very little pay, and in doing that they are helping keep the prices of domestic goods down across the country.
They argue that illegal aliens are criminals and social and economic burdens to law-abiding Americans. But for the most part those American citizens would never work or be satisfied with the dirty downgraded jobs those illegal immigrants come to happily take. “If illegal immigration came to a standstill, it would disrupt the economy,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Economy.com. “It would lead to higher prices for many goods and services, and some things literally would not get done. It would be a major adjustment for our economy, for
Illegal immigration does not have a negative economic impact in the United States as some people would make it seem. This misconception is due to people thinking that the illegal immigrants are stealing the jobs of good citizens leaving them without work. Another misconception is that the workers are taking money from our economy. However both of these reasons are quickly proven unfounded in fact. This topic is of importance to the people of the United States because there are around 12 million illegal immigrants living and working in this nation.
José Gómez Rhetoric September 17, 2014 Illegal Mexican Immigration Illegal immigration is an issue that has been bothering the United States since the early 1900s. Since our countries’ past, racism towards minorities almost felt normal; our country has came a long way and people are finally starting to come around to the fact that minorities aren't going anywhere. The topic seems to be very easily debatable in our society because of the societal biased that comes with illegal immigrants. Some people say that illegal immigration could benefit the United States economy through additional tax revenue; they contend that immigrants have already imprinted
Therefore, the United States has so many economic issues. The American citizens who pays taxes are the ones paying for illegal immigrants to stay and live in America. The number of jobs that illegal immigrants take deceases the availability of jobs for the legal US citizens. If the illegal immigrants work for very low wages and in unfit working conditions, a legal citizen wouldn’t get because they wouldn’t work for so cheap pay. It’s becoming harder and harder for a US citizen without a high school diploma to find a job.
