(Costa) Most Americans point out the bad and disadvantages that immigration brings, but immigration does bring benefits. When immigrants come to America they are not given or placed in high end jobs, they take whatever they can get. That shows how determined and desperate these people are in coming to this country and trying to start a new life. Immigration analyst Daniel Costa says immigrants are harder working then most of the average American because they make more of an effort to stay in this country and they see that by living here it is a privilege and not a right, which some Americans take for granite. (Costa) Immigrants contribute back to the U.S by expanding their culture and ethnic traits, which creates a more diverse America.
The process of beefing up the border, passing and enforcing new laws to punish employers who hire undocumented workers and raiding and detaining them at place of their residency takes a large number of effort and funds that could be better spent on social programs. There is too much focus on the term of “illegal immigrant” and not enough exploration of why these people are here. The illegal immigrants are for the most part migrant workers that are willing to risk detainment, deportation or even death while crossing the border because they are aware that there are jobs for them in the United States.

Discrimination Against Immigrants It is extremely difficult for immigrants to thrive in any foreign country, especially if their immigration status is an illegal one. The widespread perception that people commonly have about immigrants is that they are intruders who only arrived to any given country to take away that country’s native individual’s employment opportunities, to live on government benefits or to commit crimes. This is based on the fact that when people decide to leave their native countries, it is usually because they are looking for a better life than the one they had back in their place of origin and because of this they may accept jobs and work under conditions that others would not accept, and for example, they may work for lesser wages and without any kind of employee benefits. However, it is usually extremely difficult for immigrants to find jobs either due to the language barrier or because of their illegal alien status; therefore, they end up receiving countless government benefits, which end up being paid for by the common citizen in the form of taxes. Furthermore, some people see immigrants as gang members or even as guerrilla and cartel members who are used to lead a life of crime back at their countries of origin.

Unfortaucatly most Americans do not know why other countries despise us, our leaders would like us to believe it because owe are a “democracy” and because of our freedoms. I truly believe they have puffed us up with lies and are merely forcing us into believing things will be okay for one reason. To keep us blind to the fact that they indeed have “the hand that rocks the cradle”. As I have educated myself on what public opinion is, it leaves a bad taste in me. Though I believe if we truly unite things can change based on the way things are I have to side with the public intellectuals Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman “Public Opinion proposes that the increased power of propaganda, and the specialized knowledge required for effective political decisions, have rendered impossible the traditional notion of democracy.” Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman used as the title of their book Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
