Immigration is becoming a controversial issue in the U.S. Immigration advantages like economic growth, sharing cultures, diversity and new skill sets in betterment of immigrant’s lives. Immigration makes a more innovative, flexible, and productive economy, leading to new and better jobs. USA is also known as a “melting pot” because people living in the USA are from different parts of the World. An important benefit of immigration is economic growth. According to a research on White House website, “immigration reform would increase real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) relative to current law projections by 3.3 percent in 2023 and 5.4 percent in 2033 – an increase of roughly $700 billion in 2023 and $1.4 trillion in 2033 in today’s dollars” Ambitious immigrants often start the new businesses and the growth of these businesses result in creation of new job opportunities. Increase in employment rate usually leads to more consumer spending, low unemployment rate, increase in tax revenues and increase in household income. According to the Fiscal Policy Institute, “Small businesses owned by immigrants employed an estimated 4.7 million people in 2007, and these small businesses generated more than $776 billion in revenue annually” While in the USA, immigration has played an important part in the stabilization of economy. Immigrants also add a great significance to linguistic diversity. In metropolitan cities like New York, Boston and Chicago multiple languages like Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Arabic and Chinese are spoken. But there is a negative side to it. Immigrants use their own language with each other and do not try to learn English which creates divisions in the community. USA offers a better educational system and job opportunities to immigrants as compare to other countries. For example, If International students qualify, they can study in the most prestigious schools like Harvard Business School and MIT. Immigration law in the USA also provides refuges a chance...
...1.Should American encourage immigration?
Immigration policy affects all aspects of society. Regardless of status, immigrants have always played a central role in the life and growth of a nation.An Immigrant is a person who has citizenship in one country but who enters a different country to set up a permanent residence. Just entering another country does not make you an immigrant. In order to be an immigrant you must have citizenship in one country, and you must have gone to a different country with the specific intention of living there. Immigration to the US is highly competitive and, depending on an individual’s situation, can be a lengthy and complicated process. Immigration procedures and requirements are broadly divided into three categories: those attempting to immigrate on the basis of a family relationship, those attempting to immigrate for employment, and those entering the US for the purposes of study. Lawful immigration greatly benefits both America and the lawful immigrants, while unlawful immigration presents challenges to America’s ability to protect its borders and preserve its sovereignty.
Immigration has always been a formidable engine of economic and demographic growth for the United States.Many immigrants are natural entrepreneurs, establishing companies, creating jobs, and driving innovation. Well-educated and highly-trained foreign workers are inventive...

The United States as a country faces challenges of weak economic growth and dramatic levels of projected growth in the federal debt. With Immigration Reform it can help the United States gain economic growth and production of goods. The historical experience of legalization under the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act states that comprehensive immigration reform would raise wages, create jobs, and generate additional tax revenue. Taking the experience of IRCA, it’s been estimated that comprehensive immigration reform would yield at least $1.5 trillion in added U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) over 10 years. Many economists believe that immigration reform provides a net benefit. It increases demand and productivity and helps drive innovation for all of us to benefit. Relaxed immigration rules could encourage one to start businesses, increase demand for housing, raise tax revenues and help reduce the budget deficit. The impacts of immigration reform suggest that it will have important economic growth to the country.
There are over 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States., many of whom have lived and worked here for years. Bringing men and women out to the surface and providing earned citizenship will allow them to have...

...and Europe. This essay will answer the questions of migration issue among the Austrian immigration to Canada. Canada can be identified simply as a country of vast geographical size, the second largest country in the world, but with a small population of some 25 million people, and is in many ways several countries accidentally linked by the historical development, peopled by different and distinct immigrant cultures, symbolised by having two official languages.(Brake, 1985, p.144) Immigration is a big complex issue that depends on individual choice but if there should be a generalisation it would be indicate as a struggle to create a new life with hopes by sweeping the past mostly. To an answer to why is it a "complex" issue, it can be said that the general dissatisfaction, which means, people migrating to other countries by leaving many things behind mostly nag about the conditions of the new country in terms of racism, ethnic prejudice also native residents complain about newcomers too. So if nothing has changed in terms of satisfaction why are these people still continuing to migrate? To make this question clearer, some points have to be highlighted as firstly brief information about how Austrians came to Canada then why Canada is attractive to Austrian residents, sociologic profile of Austrian immigrants, what are the contributions of immigrants for the migrated country and also the issue of native's feedback to immigrants....
My great-grandfather told me once, “When I was still young, in my peak years of 20s, everything I needed to go to the America is to know how to read.” He did know how to read very well, but he was a wealthy young man and had no reasons to leave the Ukraine. At that time, like today, the biggest two reasons people are migrating to the United States is because of the poor standard of living and religious pressure of the government. Unfortunately, in most cases; religion was just another excuse to come to this great country. The United States is based on immigrants and those people influence a great deal on the economy and development of the country itself.
Most people don't know the percentage of legal and illegal immigrants. The number is always changing, but it is larger than ever before. The higher standard of living in the USA is what drives many immigrants, yet, this country is the best. We always see on television illegal immigrants who are trying to cross the boarders between United States and Mexico. The US does send some illegal people back. However, this country benefits from illegal immigrant because businesses pay them the lowest wages that American citizens would not work for.
At the end of the year, the taxes we usually get back from the government, well, illegal immigrants don’t get them. Also, factors like vocation...
...The Effect of Immigration on the UK Labour Market and Economy
Immigration is defined as the process wherein a person or group of persons leave their original country of residence and move to another in order to work or reside. The UK economy has been one of the fastest growing economies of its period which was one of the reasons why it attracted as many immigrants as it did. Considering that a majority of the immigrants are workers, it is logical to conclude that they would have had a significant impact on the labour market. This essay attempts to prove that the influx of migrants has had a positive effect on the UK economy and labour market.

This article begins by addressing the question of why people migrate and provides the reasons which might motivate people to take such a drastic step. It further goes on to say that immigration would affect both aggregate demand and supply levels of the economy. The article shows the different ways migrants would affect different areas such as labour supply, job search, capital stock, technology and so on. According to the author, inflow of migrants would definitely increase the level of demand and supply in the economy. It would also boost consumption levels which would in turn increase production levels. The...
...educational authority, DES (Department of Education and Skills). This states that the U.S. is losing out to the U.K. in attracting international students (Stenman 2006). Thousands of skilled young South Africans tend to emigrate in search of a better living, thus, draining the country of much-needed economic resources such as manpower. According to BBC News; 100,000 people every year leave South Africa and the 70% that are still in there say they are considering emigrating, despite their government asking them to stay and work in the country.
Racism is an act of discrimination or prejudice based on one’s race. It’s a negative social behavior to people with different cultures and races. This is one of the major issues the world is facing. Immigration can be a social issue, where racism is used to exploit feelings and express woes of the local population towards the immigrants (Nittle 2011). According to the New York Times; a group a West Africans migrated to Rocky Mountains, North America in search of economic opportunity were involved in a disagreement with Wal-Mart, accusing it of discriminatory actions, they argued that they were been dismissed because supervisors wanted them to give their jobs to locals. Most of the African employees were repeatedly disciplined for not meeting the production necessities. Eventually, they were fired; non-African workers were not subjected to the same criticism. As reported by CNN U.S.; a poll has been conducted to 1,031...

Immigration in the United States
Immigration is a complex phenomenon that has played a major role in the growth of the population in the United States. It is described as the entrance and long –term stay across the national border without receiving appropriate legal documentation. Illegal immigration in the U.S. has soared to a massive scale. As many as 14 million families live in the United States illegally in which at least one is head of household. Illegal immigrants can be deemed as illegal by entering the country without authorization or inspection, staying beyond an authorized period or after legal entry, or by violating the terms of legal entry. Why do people immigrate? Many people immigrate for a variety of reasons. Some relocate by force or fear, escape form prejudices and persecutions, and while others are primarily voluntary. Granted the move may be a necessity, it can be somewhat of a traumatic and challenging experience. Immigrants steal from the federal government, destroy private property, and hurt hard working U.S. citizens. Immigration should have stipulations because it would alleviate certain economic issues, reduce the criminal activity, and benefit the nation health wise.
Illegal immigrants who travel from Mexico and Central America usually come for economic reasons and even oppression from politics within...
