Against Illegal Immigration
Top of Form
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. These workers are not given any kind of health care or any other benefits and can easily be mistreated or discriminated against since they do not have any legal rights. This can cause hardship for the illegal immigrants and also put strain on the government at a local, state, and federal level due to the evasion of taxes. The general population is also affected by illegal immigrants since these immigrants are taking jobs away from the legal citizens and driving up the unemployment rate of our country. The United States has a right to limit and control immigration into the country and I feel that every attempt possible should be taken to minimize this ongoing problem of illegal immigration.

...IllegalImmigrationIllegalimmigration has been an ongoing problem for Americans. It refers to the entry of foreign citizens into a country without legal documents. In addition, illegalimmigration is the continuous stay of a person in a foreign county with an expired visa. Illegalimmigration has both pros and cons to any given country including the United States of America. The main merit of illegalimmigration is boosting of the economic growth and creating diversity in the economy. On the other hand, these uninvited guests result in excessive government spending, crimes in the country, risks of terrorism, and drug trafficking across the border into the country. This essay expounds both the negative and the positive impacts of illegalimmigration in America.
The United States economy has immensely increased thanks to the illegalimmigration that has brought in a large labor force. The employers hire illegal immigrants who are both skilled and unskilled; thus, economic productions prosper. Many economic sectors are able to get the number of employees required for any workload due to the presence of immigrants. The living standards of the families also improve due to better salaries than what they earned in their mother countries; an excellent example is the...

The general public must understand the importance of illegalimmigration and how it affects our country. To have an affirmative path to citizenship is in the best interest of not only the American people but also our economy and our government. Once the Democratic and Republican parties agree on a more suitable solution for legal immigration status, the outcome will draw down the U.S. debt by more taxes paid to the government. There are 11.1 million and counting of foreign born who are not U.S. citizens. (Pew Research, 2011) Their immediate citizenship would add 1.4 trillion to the country economic growth.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans favor giving illegal immigrants in the country in this country an opportunity for legal status. 71 percent of Democrats are in support of an earned path to citizenship where only 53 percent of Republicans are. One of the options that drew the least support was the option with no path to citizenship, but a larger minority was 21 percent said that illegal immigrants should be identified and deported. (New York Times 2013: A: 17)
Most Americans said the Republicans party had been hurt in recent elections by its position on illegalimmigration. In the...
...Illegalimmigration has become a huge issue in the United States, it is estimated that there are about twelve million illegal immigrants living in the U.S. today and that number is growing larger every day. This issue has caused multiple social, economic, safety, and law issues within the country. The state and federal government is using billions of dollars on things such as school, welfare, and medical and receiving minimal or no money in return simply because they are giving out the money to illegal immigrants who do not pay taxes to help fund things. Even though illegal immigrants help the economy, take low paying jobs, and improve the overall image of America, the U.S. must not allow any persons who enter this country illegally to stay in this country because, the illegal immigrants create social, economic, safety, and law issues for the country.
The United States has a long history of immigration from different countries. People first started immigrating to the U.S. in around the year 1815. “Between the year 1815 and 1915 it is estimated that thirty million Europeans arrived into the United States” (Willis par. 1). Once people started immigrating to this country is when the problems started to begin regarding illegalimmigration. People of the time wanted to get into, and be a part of this country they just did not want to do it the correct...
...Immigration a National Concern
In history class the United States of America was commonly referred to as a “Melting Pot” of cultural and racial backgrounds. The open–immigration policy that was maintained until the late nineteenth century helped to populate the United States. From 1800 thru 1890, the United States population grew from 5.3 million to 62.6 million (Brunner 392). Immigration had a huge impact on how the United States grew socially and economically. It was a new world that offered hope and new beginnings. It was place of safety and freedom, a place where opportunity and success could be found around every corner. Today some still see the United States as a place to prosper, however to those who were born and lived here see it in a different light. It is a place where native born citizens are continually being pushed out of their communities because of weak immigration policies. They deal with overcrowded education systems and lack of adequate job opportunities to support themselves and families and where politicians say one thing when to get in office do another when there. A survey that was taken in September 1994 showed that out of 800 people, 49 percent were bothered about the presence of illegal immigrants. Over a decade later in April 2007, 45 percent of 1009 people surveyed were personally worried about the presence of illegalimmigration (Segovia...
...IllegalImmigrationIllegalimmigration is a growing problem in the United States of America. Today the United States has estimated that there are at least twelve million illegal immigrants in the United States and that number increases every year. Illegalimmigration is the cause of many economic issues today such as decreasing job opportunities for citizens, rising costs, injustice, and crime. If we stop illegalimmigration, we can fix these problems and help our economy. The reality is that illegal that are in the United States. Illegalimmigration hurts the United States middle class and it is very damaging to the United States economy. Because of illegalimmigration, every single day wages are lost, taxes do not get collected, hospitals give free health care that is never paid and the cost of providing social services to illegal immigrants is slowly causing state and the government to go bankrupt.
Illegal immigrants take jobs away from American citizens. For every 100 illegal immigrants who find jobs in the United States, sixty five American workers are removed from theirs. The United States Beau of Labor Statistics found that legal and illegal immigrants have taken more than one million jobs during the years 2008...

Immigration Then & Now; an Unchanged Pattern
Since the inception of immigration policies, The United States has fostered upon itself a variety of deviations from the results it subtly desires. If there is one thing that has been certain throughout the decades, it would be that at anytime the economy is operating at satisfactory levels, the issue of immigration fades away and is avoided as much as possible. However, soon after problems such as recession, wars, or unemployment arise, the topic spawns again and becomes more controversial the longer its duration. The most prominent detail about these policies is that the United States favors immigration when workers are needed, but as soon as conditions are back to normal, it opposes it once again.
The powerful enforcement of immigration laws during times of tranquility suggests that the need for immigrant workers is conditional and only accepted at times when labor is at a low supply. It can be noted by Mexican migration patterns that those of Latin descent go north of their home land in order to find work so that they can provide financial support for not only themselves, but mostly for their families. Looking back at the year 1942 when the world was in the middle of an intense war and the Unites States had just recently joined after the events at Pearl Harbor, we can notice the initiation of a program that...
...Paul Chehade - To resolve the problem of illegalimmigration, we must know the origin of the causes
(1888 PressRelease) More than 11 million unauthorized immigrants living and working in our country. The legal immigration system is inadequate to meet the needs of the U.S. in the 21 st century. Paul Chehade.
We are a nation that has always drawn much of its strength from having people come here and add to the energy and prosperity of the country. The immigrants who have chosen to make the difficult and challenging choice to move to America have often been some of the most productive citizens of the countries they left behind.
People emigrate from one country to another for a variety of complex reasons. Some are forced to move, due to conflict or to escape persecution and prejudices, while others may voluntarily emigrate. Although such a move may be necessary, it can be quite traumatic on top of the challenges experienced so far.
More than 11 million unauthorized immigrants living and working in our country. The legal immigration system is inadequate to meet the needs of the U.S. in the 21 st century.
We cannot deport millions of people, most of whom are hardworking and living quiet, orderly lives. We need to deal in a humane and reasonable way with the millions of people who are already here illegally. If they have acted inappropriately while here, then we should send them back to their native...
...Immigration Issues in the United States of America
The United States of America (U.S.A) is a country that was founded on immigration. If a surplus of European immigrants would not have made the transatlantic voyage to America, the U.S.A. would more than likely be nonexistent. For centuries foreigners have been flocking to American soil, in search of a fresh start in a safe location. With so much turmoil and hostility going on in varied countries around the world, more foreigners are attempting to immigrate onto American soil. Now that the total population is rising significantly due to immigrants, a plethora of United States citizens are becoming outraged. If only American citizens would open their eyes to reality, they would discover that immigrants are actually benefiting the United States. Once they immigrate, a large percentage of foreigners do everything they can to be successful. Immigrants benefit the country by starting businesses, working jobs the typical American refuses to work, and bringing cultural diversity to the country. Some skeptics believe that foreigners are taking their jobs and raising the crime rate, but they those are wrong allegations. Immigration of foreigners into the U.S.A positively benefits the country in countless ways, instead of negatively affecting it.
The economy of the United States of America has had its ups and downs over the course of its existence as a country. Innumerable amounts of...
