taxpayers about $193 per household per year (Stein 2011). My family along with many others are having a hard enough time paying for their own bills and what not let alone someone else's. As long as foreigners are encouraged by our actions to ignore our immigration laws, we will forever be hard pressed to defend our borders. And, not only will America’s most vulnerable workers (minimum-wage) suffer from unfair competition against illegal aliens for jobs, but that competition will become even harsher because of the newly legalized workers competing for jobs from employers who precisely hire only legal workers (Martin 2011). Many argue that they are an economic benefit.
In 1998, the states paid a little over seven dollars a day per inmate for healthcare (Kinsella, 2004). You can imagine that in the last thirteen years, this cost has continued to increase and will only get worse with the aging prison population, the occurrences of communicable disease and
One third will be caught and most of those same people will try again. About half of those remaining will become U.S. residents, which add up to around 3,500 per day. Lastly, about sixty billion dollars are earned by illegal aliens in the U.S. each year. Mexico's largest revenue streams consist of money that is sent home by the immigrants working in the United States. (CAIR 1) Now that you have heard some background information and some stats on immigration, I want you to think about one thing, immigration laws.
In fact, illegal immigrants are not allow to claim civil rights because they are already criminals by crossing the border illegally. They also hurt the U.S economy by increasing unemployment and lowering job demand. Furthermore, they commit crimes leaving a life of fear and mocking justice by changing their names. Illegal immigrants are criminals and represent a threat to American
citizens. Illegal immigrants undermine American business owners by charging considerably lower prices for labor, such as contract work and construction. Who wouldn’t want to pay a lower price to get their flooring installed? So who suffers? The owners if these businesses are losing work to these illegal immigrants every day.
Our own people in our country are contributing to the National Debt. Public debt is at an extreme high too. Public debt is every bit of money a person owes the government and that number is very high also when everyone in the US is added together and counted as a whole. Our budget is not looking too great either. We have exceeded our budget too many times and that has only added to the debt that we owe.
John majors government came into office after the downfall of Margret Thatcher, which ultimately created divisions within the party. Not only did the party suffer from the internal conflict but also faced the problems of the recession after the ‘Lawson boom’. In order to stabilise the economy he joined the ERM getting a good deal but ultimately resulting in ‘black Wednesday’ causing Major to raise interest rates to 15%. This was political suicide and he soon lost the support of the press we had once relied so much on to get re-elected in 1992. The housing market also plummeted leading to negative equity, which the majority of the working class could not afford resulting in the repossession of their houses combined with the drastic increase in unemployment Britain was in a mess.
A lot of American citizens don't like the idea of this immigration reform because they think the United States its going to get worst and because the immigration reform is against their morals and the law. One of the cons is that less-skilled American citizens will earn less money and have fewer job opportunities because they must compete with immigrants in the job market. American citizens don't want the immigration reform because they think immigrants are going to take away their opportunity for jobs. The economy is bad right now with jobs. There is less opportunity of jobs than before.
The overflow of migration to the United States has burdened the country. Currently the United States’ government does not do enough to enforce illegal immigration. The lack of funding and enforcing of laws is weakening the borders every day. The effects of illegal immigration are real: America is proof.
The first being the economic impact, followed by the dangers of illegal immigration and the threat of immigrants taking American jobs. To help ease those issues, the first solution to illegal immigration would be to cut the funding to the border control effort. Although this may seem highly contradictory, research has found that a majority of the illegal immigrants that have come to the U.S. have applied for some kind of legal documents. However, due to the almost 10 year lag in the application process, many felt as though they could not wait until it was legal. If funding was redirected in a way that would decrease the lag time, many immigrants would no longer have to sneak in to the U.S. (Sassen).
