Professor Bailey Written Composition October 24, 2012 Illegal Immigrants Help More than they Hurt Going back in history you probably can recall that America was founded by illegal immigrants. Without them who know if we would even be. So why are we so hard on the illegal immigrants now? They made a change once who’s to say they can’t and won’t do it again but things can only happen by opportunity and availability. We have the availability we just need to give them the opportunity.
Illegal Aliens; A National Epidemic It's at the detriment of not only the safety of Americans, but also the governmental funding that illegal immigrants exist within our country. Since they do not take the necessary procedures to indoctrinate themselves within our culture and gain citizenship, they enjoy all the benefits while suffering none of the penalties. With the economic freedom and opportunity America presents, Illegal Immigrants, whether intentional or not, steal jobs from legal citizens. This contributes to the fact 25 million less-educated Americans are jobless while seven million Illegal Aliens are not. It is also crucial to note that in so coming to our country by illegal means, they are breaking the law.
However, they just continue to come back to the United States. Deporting the illegal immigrants is not an effective way to handle this problem. Another idea to decrease illegal immigration is to increase the amount of border control workers. While this can stop many illegal immigrants and Rigby 3 create more jobs for United States citizens it will just barely put a dent in the amount that still enters the United States every year. A solution to this ever growing problem would to be for the United States to begin charging the countries in which illegal immigrants are coming to the United States from.
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
Or they know and simply don’t care because of the life they are living now and America somewhat rewards illegal aliens by certain processes of business marriages, immigration and naturalization laws that will eventually allow them to become legal. The United States do have laws on the books for these actions, but they aren’t acted on because of the immensity of the illegal alien problem in this country. The government of this country uses this problem as politics to gain the power and elections that they want in their state or Washington D.C. I was born in The United States and my parents are Jamaican and worked hard to be here and legally. However, as a descendant I do understand why illegal aliens do come here and want better.
Amnesty in the United States In The Economic Consequences of Amnesty for Unauthorized Immigrants, written by economists Orrenius and Zavodny, from 1969 to 2009 as many as 11 million undocumented immigrants have come to America, mainly from Mexico, Central America and Asian countries (Cato Journal 87). There are many amnesty proposals by both democrats and republicans since there is no denying that the American immigration system is broken. The alternative to amnesty is immoral and unethical, which would consist of deporting and punishing families, including children, who have come to America for a better life in the pursuit of happiness. It is unethical to deport 11 million people, therefore undocumented immigrants that have been here for a certain length of time or came as a child should be given a path to citizenship to make it possible for them to legally live and work in the United States, although government would have to impose certain policies first and certain requirements would have to be met by the immigrants in order for them to gain amnesty. Deporting so many people seems to be immoral, considering many of them contribute to society.
Their mission is to prevent illegal aliens from entering that cause a threat to American society. Often their purpose is confused. With all of the debates going on regarding border security, what can we do to solve this age old issue? America’s plans to control the invasion of immigrants haven’t worked so far, maybe it’s time to find other ways of dealing with this problem. I personally do not feel that we can ever completely stop immigration.
Illegal Immigration: America’s Downfall Each person in the United States at a point in time was an immigrant. If a person were to trace back their ancestors, most people would find that he or she were in some way apart of the immigration movement. Finding that their families moved into America to hunt for freedom, jobs, money, and a free form government. America became a safe haven for citizens from around the world who were being dictated under communist rule. America also enabled natives who needed jobs to gain wealth in order to support their families.
Illegal immigrants work the hard jobs in this country as they take the jobs that they can get. Now, I am not glorifying illegal immigrants on any account, I believe that they should have immigrated to the United States through legal means, I believe they should need to apply for green cards and pay taxes. The point I am trying to make is that, the illegal immigrants do difficult work in this country that nobody would take if it was offered (the stereotyped migrant work, factory jobs, etc. ), so why do people complain (“Illegal
Throughout the current wave of immigration, polls have consistently found that the public, at large, favors curbing immigration. African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans believe the levels of immigration are too high, as well as 90% think that illegal immigration is a "very serious" or "somewhat serious" problem in the U.S. today (Miller). Another main statistic is that 81% think it is unfair to grant rights to illegal immigrants while thousands wait to come to the U.S. legally. However, a focus on this problem
