Illegal immigration takes place all over the world. There are both ups and downs to illegal immigration. Laws limit the immigration but does not stop the illegal immigration. Illegal immigration has a positive effect on society because it creates diversity in the world, one can learn new skills and cultures from immigrants, and immigration gives immigrants a chance to change or start their lives over.
There is much diversity in the world because of immigration. Having a mix of people betters the life of a nation. Immigrants bring their own music, arts, and their traditions to their new country (Brownell 77). There are many reasons why immigrants immigrate. Franklin D. Scott stated,” The main reason for immigration, however, has long been economic opportunity (Scott 803).” Police cannot question someone about their immigration status unless there is a lawful stop to enforce a different law or there is reasonable suspicion. Race and color should not be considered (Rove 20). Some countries need immigrants to increase the birth rate.
Immigrants bring new skills and traditions along with them. When immigrants move from one place to another they bring all their skills from their old country with them (Brownell 78). One reason for immigration is to help out family. Many immigrants send a portion of their money home. When they send money home it makes a significant contribution to their home country (Wilson 10). Immigrants are more willing to work for low wages than the native people of that country.
Immigration is an easy way to benefit the economy of one’s country. The currencies may be different in other countries; therefor immigrants will work for lower wages. When immigrants pay taxes it contributes to the country they work in. Immigrants usually are hard workers most of the time because they need the money to support their families. Some immigrants fill the place of skilled workers and sometimes set up their own businesses....
...Title: Mexican Immigration
Specific Purpose: To inform classmates on the causes and effects of Mexican immigration
Thesis Statement: The causes of Mexican immigration is a combination of "push/pull" factors, where conditions in Mexico push them out and opportunity in the U.S. pulls them in, where they actually become an asset to the U.S. economy.
Attention-getting material: Imagine waking up everyday to hunger, hopelessness, and despair, knowing that you cannot
do anything about it, knowing that next door there is opportunity, and that the grass is greener on that side, and the only option is to stay where you are and starve or find a way to make it to the other side. This scenario is one that millions of Mexicans face or have faced, and the issue of Mexican immigration has once again become a hot topic, after 9/11 and during this conservative fever that seems to be sweeping the nation.
Credibility material: For my speech I have used six credible sources three books and three Internet sources for statistics. Jorge Castaneda Mexico's former foreign minister wrote one of the books that I used, the other two books were written by Dale Maharidge and Andres Oppenheimer, Mr. Oppenhiemer is a columnist for the Miami Herald. My Internet research was gathered from PBS.org the Census Bureau, and The National Catholic Reporter respectively.
PREVIEW: Throughout my speech I will be explaining the causes of...
...world more submitted to global crisis since their economies are closely interlinked than a crisis in one country would lead to the same effect on economies of other countries that are its economic partners. In this respect, migration seems to be probably the most effective by such a striking contrast that leads to high level of emigration from developing countries and respectively high level of immigration in developed countries. This means that people from developing and poor countries prefer to move to developed and rich countries.
Moreover, this process keeps growing despite the fact that globalization produced a positive influence on international trade flows that have increased significantly since the beginning of the process of globalization. Presumably, it should really improve the situation in developing countries and decrease the level of emigration. Nonetheless, in actuality the trend, which will be discussed in details a bit later, remains practically unchangeable even though many developed countries attempt to create certain artificial barriers to both legal and illegal immigration. In such a way it is necessary to remember that globalization is a dubious process that has both positive and negative sides and migration is highly dependent on this process to the extent that the basic migration flows are defined by the current situation in the global economy and possibilities of population movement between different countries.

...Economic Effects of Immigration in the UK
Within the past ten years, immigration has tripled in the UK. The rising trend of immigration has led to a strongly negative perception towards foreigners within the British population. Economists have a more modest opinion on immigration; the economic impact of immigration seems crucial, but it would seem that it in fact only has a small effect on the domestic labor market. Furthermore, the Home Office has indirectly conceded that they have lost the general compendium over the number of incoming immigrants, creating objectives to manage immigration to the benefit of the UK. Firstly, an assessment of the immigration statistics will be made, giving an overview of the accrued immigrants as of 1971. Next the performance of immigrants from the A8 countries (Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia) will be evaluated and then the economic impact of rising immigration will be outlined. To conclude, an introduction to the Home Office’s reformed immigration-system will be given.
Between 1971 and 1986, net migration made a negative contribution to UK population growth. PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) has published research results, which illustrate that net migration has made an increasingly positive contribution since 1996. It has doubled over the past five years,...
...that persuaded the Chinese.
1. The news of gold discoveries in Australia captured the Chinese peoples attention and sparked a gold rush in 1851. It prompted many Chinese miners to come to Australia as an opportunity for a job and easy money. Many were also in search of a fortune and this significantly increased the population in Australia. In fact, it was the main reason behind the Chinese invasion because after collecting enough money, many Chinese peoples invited their families and friends, and the population multiplied as the years went by.
2. In the immediate aftermath of World War 2, the Prime Minister of Australia launched a new immigration program. The attacks by Japan during the war made many realize that Australia was in an urgent need of a bigger and better army in case of another war. Australia came up with a humanitarian immigration program to collect refugees from other countries and offer them to be part of the army. So, there were many Chinese peoples serving in the Australian defense forces.
3. This is something that a lot of you are aware of and it’s the 1 child policy in China. It was established in the 1970’s and was meant to limit China’s population growth. It was also the sole reason why most of the Chinese women are in Australia right now. Before this situation, it was mainly men who left the country but after the policy was established, the women of China joined the men in Australia so that they could start a family...
...Canada. The number of total immigrants must be brought down to around 130,000 – 150,000 a year. That way we give a chance for some skilled workers, refugees and others to enter Canada while saving jobs for Canadians. Of those 130,000 - 150,000 we will make sure that at least 80% (104,000 – 120,000) of these immigrants should skilled and educated workers that can benefit the Canadian economy and society. Others should be people who are desperately in need of a Canadian Citizenship or Permanent Residence cards. Therefore making sure people in the country are served in the highest quality while still giving foreigners a chance to experience life in Canada.

Fact #2 (Write down another fact that you found that helps you to argue your specific political issue and helps to support your Party’s position on the political spectrum)
90,000 students come to study in Canada every year on a temporary residence visa or a study permit. These students must be able to prove that they can pay for their tuition, have a clean criminal record, be in good health, and leave the country once they are finished.
Comment on the above fact (make reference to your Party’s goals/political spectrum beliefs):
Everybody has a right to learn whether or not it is in Canada or not. As left winger we want to provide an equal chance for everyone...
...Italian Immigration in Australia |
By Milly Graham – 10A |
The history of Italian Immigration in Australia and future proposals to further improve it. |
Italian Immigration in Australia
Pasta and pizza the two words are brought to mind when you think of Italy. The last thing that you think of is immigration. We see and hear about it nearly every day but it is usually Africa or Singapore. This essay will talk about theImmigration from Italy, Why they immigrated, how they got here, their roles when they got here, whether or not they were welcome, what they contributed to our society, what difficulties they faced, the process of getting here, how they were helped and what the status of immigration is like today.
Migration means moving from one place to another, the Italians have been migrating to Australia for over 200 years. This migration was at its peak during the years between 1876 and 1965. During this time period nearly 33 000 people emigrated. The bulk of this was during or after WWII. These Italians suffered much poverty and hardship especially in the southern country areas. In these areas the wealthy people owned large areas of land. They took no interest in anyone underneath them. Under these conditions many people wanted to leave Italy. As mentioned before the bulk of migration was post WWII, this saw many single men coming to Australia and then organising...
...IMMIGRATION RESTRICTION ACT- 1901
The Immigration Restriction Act (1901) can be argued was a policy enacted to reflect the prejudices in Australian society at the time. The Immigration Restriction Act consisted of the Australian Parliament limiting immigration to Australia, which came to be known as The White Australia Policy. The White Australia Policy consists of various historical laws that favour immigration to Australia from Britain but strongly discourage non-whites or people who are not of British descent.
At the turn of the Century Australia was still a relatively new country. It’s population was 4 million, somewhat small, compared to other world populations. At the time the general public consensus was that Australia should be a white country and allowing indiscriminate immigration could threaten its identity. The White Australia Policy had overwhelming support from Australia’s white population, so it could be argued that its introduction was merely a reflection of the public’s ideals at the time. This is reflected by historian Myra Willard:
"…no motive power, operated more universally on this continent, or in the beautiful island of Tasmania… than the desire that we should be one people, and remain one people, without the admixture of other races."
Myra Willard, 'History of the White Australia Policy to 1920'. Melbourne University Press, 1923. p 119
It is clear that white...
