There has been an issue for several years in the United States, and yet it hasn’t been resolved. While the government is looking for a solution, there have been so many families that are getting separated just because they are deporting too many people. Some states that have made their own laws which are laws that are absolutely unconstitutional, such as the one from Arizona the SB-1070, which that law allows the police within that state, to stop and interrogate any person who appears to be an immigrant. They can be identified by their skin color, and their way of talking. That law is unconstitutional because the police are judging because of their appearance. The government cares about getting the immigrants out of this country without considering that they are separating families and that without the immigrants, this country wouldn’t be as strong economically. In the Star Spangled Banner, there’s a part where it says “O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?” what really captures my attention was where it said that this country is the home of the brave. Many immigrants cross the desert; they don’t ride in a car or anything like that. They run day and night, hot and cold, many people who come to this country are brave enough to cross the desert without stopping, knowing that hundreds of immigrants die trying to come to this country. All they have with them, throughout the trip, is a gallon of water. The desert reaches over 100 degrees during the day and during night the temperature drops under 80 degrees. For people who risk their lives just to get to this country, I consider them brave so by what the Star Spangled Banner says, this is their home too, because they are brave. That’s one of the reason why I’m against immigrants deportation. Georgia and Alabama enacted laws that penalized illegal immigrants recently. Now the two states are learning the consequences. Supporters of the laws believed the new sanctions would drive away only illegal immigrants. In fact, Hispanics with legal status or even U.S. citizenship also are moving elsewhere. Many people ask why leave? But that’s the wrong question; the correct question is why on earth stay? Why stay in a state that immigrants believe oppresses the entire Hispanic community? Why stay when government launches an assault that splits Latino families and opens the door to racial profiling? The lawmakers also failed to take into account the contribution immigrant labor was making toward rebuilding areas devastated by this year's storms. Contractors in Tuscaloosa, Ala., say Hispanic workers have left and they can't find replacements to repair the tornado damage. Republican lawmakers assured skeptics that American workers would be only too happy to step in and take the jobs that immigrants left. Farmers in Alabama and Georgia are still waiting. Georgia tried giving farm work to prison inmates, until they lost their appetite for backbreaking 10-hour workdays at minimum wage. If inmates were willing to work that hard, they wouldn't be in prison to begin with. According to Georgia farm officials, $140 million in crops has been lost because of the state's labor shortages since the law began in July 2011. The lawmakers remind you that none of these consequences was intended, of course. As the world's leading superpower, it is the responsibility of the United States to serve as a haven for immigrants escaping devastating conditions. Many immigrants are fleeing from famine, war, political strife, or religious persecution. It is a responsibility, and/or merely a good act, to protect these people by allowing them to take refuge and start new lives in the United States. Americans oppose the deportation of all illegal immigrants. A USA Today Poll dated March 2007 asked, "Should the government deport all illegal immigrants back to their home country?" In response, only 24% of...
Illegal Immigration: The unspoken downfall of the American Empire
The United States of America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, where opportunities were vast, and people migrated in seek of a greater life; however, the American way of living has since then become obsolete and in it’s stead a country facing extreme fiscal burden due to a high influx of illegal immigration which has a resulted in a dramatic tax increase for the American people, a decrease in the quality of life and job availability, and the overall state of America and the economy. Furthermore, a nation penetrated every year by some 300,000 illegal aliens…is not a nation experiencing ‘immigration’, but rather, a nation experiencing an invasion. For centuries, our nation has been a safe haven for people of different cultures and nationalities to inhabit. However, that which we have prided ourselves in, will ultimately contribute to our greater downfall; for the negative effect illegal aliens are having on the U.S economy and society, is so great, it will eventually surpass and reach the point beyond resuscitation.
As stated above, many as a safe haven have considered the United States, thereby, resulting ongoing struggle of people fighting their way into the country for decades. However, as the decades pass, the issue continue to rapidly escalate in gravity. With the United States border being so close to Mexico it is now seeing...
...effects of illegalimmigrants
The issue of illegalimmigrants in the United States has sparked a lot of controversy among those alike and politicians. With such a widely discussed topic and a lot of debate illegalimmigrants serve as much purpose in the United States as any other legal citizen. Often times they are just here to make a better life for their families and themselves. Not allillegalimmigrants migrate to the U.S for the same reason such as to sell drugs or to be a burden to the U.S. economy. Some of these immigrants just want to work and be successful like many Americans. In other words, they want to experience the American dream, which is to work hard and obtain some kind of riches and in order to do that they would have to obtain some sort of job.
A company will benefit from the illegal status of a migrant who is desperate for work and therefore prepared to accept poor pay, usually below local norms. Hiring an illegal worker also brings the employer the advantage of paying less in the way of welfare contributions and other nonwage costs. The "welfare magnet" of illegal immigration is much stronger for the company than for the worker, whose precarious situation and low bargaining power makes him highly vulnerable to discriminatory practices in the form of longer hours and nonpayment of...

What has our nation come to? Separating children from their parents. Aren’t children in America a number one priority? It’s clear that illegalimmigrants looking for an immigration reform is a huge issue, there are many things holding our nation back from giving the ones in need one. Perhaps, Terrorist Threat, Economic Reasons & even Violence. However, it’s time that justice has to be made for those who come to this country to make a better future for their families. Over a decade illegalimmigrants have been discriminated, being called “illegal aliens” and mistreated for only coming to this country to give their family a better place to live. It is unfair how adults are trying to build up a better life for themselves, having children in this country and getting deported. This affects children in many ways emotionally & mentally.
It is obvious that America has been deporting these “aliens” as easy as one, two, three just thinking about their benefit but not thinking of the children who are being separated from their parents. The government believes keeping illegal “aliens” out will prevent Terrorist attacks and Economic issues, when the truth is they are only affecting our own nation. Deportations leave many U.S.-citizen children with unauthorized parents in foster care,...
With the rise of illegalimmigrants, the United States has had difficulties solving the issue for a long time. Hence, there’re many factors for the causes and solutions from different branches and the government. “Amnesty?” and “Why blame Mexico?” are two articles that discuss the reasons for millions of Mexicans risking their lives to come illegally to the U.S. and indeed illustrate the writer’s perspectives and ideas for those people.
In “Amnesty?”, John F. Kavanaugh, a Jesuit professor of philosophy, presents the illegalimmigrants problem based upon the morality of a Judeo-Christian country. The writer begins by a sensational example of an illegal Mexican named María. She is a productive woman, a mother of three children, and a long-term illegalimmigrant in the U.S. However, she has been separated from her family, deported to a dangerous place, and threatened with felony charges of years in prison if she ever tries to come back illegally. This example, according to Kavanaugh, is a persuasive evidence proving that America illegalimmigrants treatment system is very cruel even to the priority social groups such as women and children. Additionally, Kavanaugh mentions the protestation fights against deportations by the U.S. bishops, in which they call for “a more compassionate,...

If your answer is no, than get to know it is being done by illegalimmigrants who are working under table.

To legalize or not to legalize immigrants?
Since the founding of the United States of America over 55 million immigrants have settled here. So you could say we are a country of immigrants. So why is immigration such an issue? Should immigrants be granted citizenship and by law be required to pay for taxes after five year of residency in the United States? Some may say that this is America, “home of the free” but nothing is free here or is it and for whom? If immigrants where forced to nationalize and given a past tax waver and through their taxes much needed revenue would reduce our deficit, help fund our schools, stabilize decaying medical and wealth fair systems and reduce the financial bleed out of our country to other countries specifically Mexico. To understand this better we have to look at the history of immigration.
Immigration has been feared during economic hardship, political turmoil and war. From 1840 waves of violence have rocked the U.S.. Due to pull and push factors large groups of immigrants from Ireland, China, Russia, Japan, the ethnic jews, and now Hispanic and Haiti have all been feared, restricted and abused for varies reasons. Organizations like the ACLU, (Immigrants’ Rights Project) formed in 1985, are dedicated to expanding and enforcing the civil liberties and civil rights of immigrants...
The Benefits of IllegalImmigrants
Are illegalimmigrants or undocumented immigrants beneficial to America’s economy? Most illegalimmigrants have a positive impact on the United States (U.S.) economy. Illegalimmigrants have a positive impact on the United States economy because they increase our tax revenue, they add to our social security, and they also increase our employment rates.” In 2000, statistics revealed 8.7 million illegalimmigrants resided in the United States” (Knickerbocker pgs.11-12). “A study of illegalimmigrants living in Texas showed a 420 million dollar increase in the states economy” (Strayhorn). Companies risk hiring illegalimmigrants because they are more than willing to work when companies need them (Chaddock 24-25). This should not be the case in our society because the United States should is a giving nation and we should provide available jobs for all that want to better themselves.
Although it is illegal for illegalimmigrants to work in America, they are very popular to business owners. For example, many undocumented immigrants pay sales and property taxes. Because of their employment, our economy increases by 5 percent each month ( Knickerbocker). In...
...Employment of IllegalImmigrants
Employment of illegalimmigrants in the United States, as well as other countries has been a highly controversial subject for many years now. There are many people living in various countries around the world that are unhappy with the way they are living, and want something more out of life than what their country can offer. Due to their unhappiness, they decide to immigrate to another country, and this is usually done illegally. Once they are in their preferred country, which a lot of the time is the United States, they are forced to work in low skilled jobs because higher skilled jobs require people to speak fluent English and show proof of residency. Although many people view illegal migrants as a problem and something that is bad for our country, I see this issue in another light. While researching this topic, I have discovered the struggles and tribulations that many illegal migrants must face while in search of a better life. In this paper, I will discuss the reasons why and how they leave their home countries, the type of work they must do in order to survive, and the legal aspects that try to prevent them from working as undocumented immigrants.
One of the main reasons many people from various countries decide to immigrate to the United States, is because they want a better life for themselves or for their children. When deciding to...
