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. Though these people should not have come illegally into this country, nevertheless now that they are here our economy is more bountiful because of it. More than a third of all non-legal immigrants are working in just three cities; Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. This alone takes out a lot of the argument from people who think that illegal immigrants are stealing their jobs. Furthermore these immigrants are taking whatever jobs they can find, and because of this they are doing some of the most undesired jobs in the nation.
17 Oct. 2012 SUMMARY- Kevin McGuire Use this article to explain why America has some benefits to have people working illegally in this country. APPLICATION TO THE THESIS- Americans generally believe the immigrant work ethic is strong, so strong born take jobs that should belong to native-born Americans it mean the dull, dirty and dangerous work that many Americans would prefer not to do
In fact the opposite is the truth; there is evidence that immigration helps the economy in boosting the amount of jobs and that wages are altered in a positive way for everybody who works legally. Illegal immigrants come into the US from all over the world, and they all have one thing in common, they all come for a better life. The truth is, many immigrants do achieve a better life. They’re not millionaires or anything of the sort, but a lot of people live a decent regular life in the states and the pet peeve to the majority of Americans is that immigrants do not contribute to the economy and they only hurt the economy by not paying taxes and sending the money to their families in need in other countries. “An increase in immigrants would lower the wage of native workers, and raise the wage of non-recent immigrants and capital, but these effects are
: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).
Mexico is one of our big illegal immigration problems we are faced with. But so far this is as much as we know of because of the only reports we have gotten and the numbers can and possibly be higher than the 11 million. The states of the U.S spend between usually 22 billion dollars a year to provide for welfare, medical, food stamps and education let alone. This money is not included by the SS (Social Security) and the Medicare that actually fund immigrant who have never worked a day in their life in the U.S! The reason for so many illegal aliens in our United States is because of how hard it can be
In addition, 63,000 were removed by the INS and 183,000 were awarded green cards, and therefore deemed legal (Illegal). Many feel the INS should bolster its standards because so many more people are receiving green cards then those that are being deported. The United States poor border patrol is one the largest causes of our large illegal immigration population. Unlike all the other immigrating cultures, Mexicans have a direct path into America . The Untied States-Mexico border is the site of the large majority of illegal immigration.
Even in recession time the opportunity to find job for immigrants ten times bigger than Immigrants original country. Like unemployment rate in the United States for may 2012 is 8.2% but in Iraq is 25% (BBCnews.com), and that’s mean its almost impossible to find new job in Iraq because there are plenty of people for Job in this period of time. But immigrants who don't speak English have a hard time doing many of them. Instead, they have to take jobs that don't pay as much money. This makes it very difficult for them to afford many of the things in this country that they hoped to
Immigrants strengthen the economy Undocumented immigrants not only help the economic growth of the United States but it also fulfills the needs of these individual financially as well as their families back in their countries. The tremendous amount of immigrant that arrive to the United States see the country as the land of opportunities for there families. Many of these families that migrate to the United States come from third world countries like Central America in which there is no type of progression or innovation because of the poverty, crime, lack of education and opportunities. Once arriving to the United States many immigrants are in search of jobs to support themselves and their families back home. They also come in pursue of giving a better educational opportunities to their young children.
Namely, I think the DREAM Act should become a law. I have to acknowledge that illegal immigration itself is not a good phenomenon in the society, but there is nothing wrong with those people who make this decision in order to pursue a better life. Sometimes, extremely terrible circumstances such as civil strife, famine and environmental degradation of those poor areas force them to leave their home country with little choice. “Congressional Budget Office also reports that 25 percent of ‘noncitizens’, or those here illegally or with temporary passes, live in poverty.” Take Mexican immigration as an example. According to a congressional report, 62% percent of those illegal immigrants come from Mexico.
Against Illegal Immigration Illegal immigration has been a problem for the United States for a long time. This concern is not a new and thousands of illegal immigrants have come to US by crossing the Mexican border, by boat or ship across one of the oceans, or by a number of other various ways at any of the borders. Some people have entered the country legally by using a visitor's visa, then have stayed illegally after the visa has expired and continue to live and work in our country. Employers that hire illegal immigrants to worker for them, do this because the immigrants can be hired at a pay rate less than minimum wage and the responsibility of taxes for these undocumented worker can be avoided by both the worker and the employer. Most of these workers are hired to work in the agricultural, manufacturing, and construction industries.
