...with a U.S. citizen and thought that once they married she would be granted legal citizenship. Her husband fully aware of her illegalimmigration status, decided to go underground with his new family, so they would not be separated for years if caught. After years of hiding from the law, Maythe was caught in 2010 for driving her vehicle too slowly and was handed directly over to Customs. With her American citizen husband of now 12 years and an American citizen child they share together, she thought they would have bigger problems on their hands then to send her back. She fought her case for months, eventually lost and was deported back to the country she fled all those years ago.
Maythe now lives in Tijuana, Mexico, alone, while her husband and children live in San Diego. She is banned from entering America for the next 20 years. Her family often takes the long drive, weekend after weekend, just to spend time with their wife and mother, to be a whole family again. Maythe knows without her family she will continue living a lonely life and wishes the illegalimmigration laws in America would change (Amy Isackson).

Illegalimmigration is one of the hottest debate topics in America today. Thousands of undocumented illegals cross the southern border of the United States each year. One group of these aliens comes to America with the hopes of making a better life for themselves with the hopes to become U.S. citizens. Another group comes to work without paying taxes and spends their money in Mexico. Illegal immigrants have an immediate impact on our economy, health care system, and our schools. Many of these illegal aliens acquire fraudulent documents or assume other identities. These identities come from stolen Social Security numbers that belongs to U.S citizens. The United States government should gain control of our borders to relieve pressure on our economy, salvage our health care system, and protect our children’s schools from being burdened with overcrowding.
Our economy remains under constant pressure from illegal immigrants. Workers coming to the United States leave their homes and families to come to America for the opportunity to make money. Illegal immigrants migrate to the United States and recognize that in order to live, they must produce a steady income. Most of these immigrants are un-skilled and work for a very low wage. Lower wages prompts employers, such as farmers, to hire illegal immigrants and not hire Americans for the same...

... Our country embraces diversity, yet one of the most controversial and debated topics in the United States is immigration. The founders of the United States were immigrants themselves, heroes that believed in equality and acceptance for all people. Immigration has and will always be a vital part of our nation’s diversity, economic stability, and rich culture. Although, in a post 9-11 world, should security trump diversity? Should we have to choose between being safe and being amiable? Currently we have one of the most relaxed systems of legal immigration in the world, letting in more immigrants than most other countries (Bowman). Much of our expansive border is unguarded, leaving us vulnerable to attack. Its opponents present illegalimmigration as a grave danger to the American way of life, while its supporters tout it as an opportunity for cultural diversity. The first modern immigration law, the Immigration Reform and Control Act, was passed in 1986. IRCA made it illegal to knowingly hire, or recruit, undocumented immigrants (immigrants who do not possess lawful work authorization)(Pawlick). It also required employers to attest to their employees' immigration status, and granted amnesty to undocumented immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided here for a long period (Pawlick).
