Outside the sirens are singing and someone’s parents are taken away from their family because they are not a citizen, they didn’t do anything wrong they just weren’t citizens in the country. Not every immigrant is the same, everyone is different and they all have different opinions. Immigrants are helping out their family like every other family would and they aren’t just the only people who do wrong choices so do others. Some American’s can’t accept them in their country and say immigrants are taking their jobs. Imagine having children born in the country with foreign parents and they have to be deported with their kids waiting to be adopted by “parents with better lives.” Immigrants are like everyone else, they risk themselves but they don’t
Each year thousands of mexicans cross the border illegally to find work in the united states. Most perform jobs that U.S citizens won’t do, and they pay taxes, some argue they should receive amnesty. However, opponents argue that aliens are a drain on the system and a threat to security, they should be deported. Should undocumented workers in the united states be allowed to stay? Undocumented workers in the united states should be allowed to stay in the united states. America is spending billions of dollars on different reform plans.
Illegal immigrants should be given the right to benefits in the U.S. Illegal immigrants are willing to take all kinds of jobs that Americans don't want. According to Green Garage Blog “When it comes to doing household chores, cleaning, feeding the pets and taking care of an adult in need of care and attention, an illegal immigrant can take on these types of jobs. And knowing how busy working Americans are, it helps to get support from someone”(10 Critical Pros and Cons of Illegal immigration). Illegal immigrants can start working in the U.S doing jobs that Americans don’t want like the ones stated above. This could be the gateway to helping them get a pension, retirement plan, and a 401k. Most illegal immigrants have been in the U.S for a while
No one wants to leave their country, but war, famine, and employment can cause people to migrate to find a peaceful place to stay. More than a million undocumented immigrants migrate to America every year searching for jobs and safe places for their families to stay, Because of this, every undocumented immigrant in America should be granted citizenship. The U.S government should allow the immigrants who are here illegally to become U.S citizens. Many of the undocumented immigrants do their best to assimilate, pay their taxes, and contribute to American traditions and culture. Their contributions to our country have done so much for the people, we should be honored to have them.
June 2012 was a year with a huge break through on illegal immigration, and the fight to set the decision right. Opportunities to improve immigrants careers, schooling, and lives, who were born in the United States and plan on staying are on the rise. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was created to provide immigrants with an opportunity to stay in the States “legally,” but continue their lives through education if graduating from an U.S. high school, going to college, serving in the armed forces, and eventually gain citizenship in the United States. Many U.S. citizen have many thoughts and views on illegal immigrants and immigration in general, and the pros and cons to having DACA support illegal immigrants to stay in the country. There is a huge decision in process currently in 2017 that is putting DACA in risk from being a Federal Program that would end up effecting many immigrants. Threatening deportation and the possibility of losing everything that DREAMers have worked up to and for and are continuing to work towards is at a huge risk of just being thrown away. Keeping DACA and protecting the DREAMers is important because mentally and physically they are just as much of a U.S. citizen as anyone else born in the U.S.
Undocumented workers help our economy by generating new jobs. An example of this can be seen in the following report made by Mehta et al., which states: “Undocumented immigrants in the Chicago metro area spending approximately $2.89 billion annually from their earnings. These annual expenditures of $2.89 billion generate an additional $2.56 billion in local spending. Therefore, the direct, indirect, and induced spending of undocumented workers accounts for a total of $5.45 billion spent annually in the metro area economy, or 1.5% of the Gross Regional Product for 2001. This spending generates 31,908 additional jobs in the local economy.” This report shows how greatly this marginalized group contributes to our economy, although they are not legal residents of this country. Pointing out this fact leads to the argument that legalizing all of these immigrants will help our economy even more than what they already do, since it means that more people will be paying taxes which means that more money will be collected from those
Many people from different countries come to the US illegally. Most immigrants come here legally, and some others come the illegal way. This could be staying after visa expires, crossing the border etc. Some get caught in the process of entering the US illegally while others make it and stay living here without documentation. Many people believe that they should not be allowed to stay and here illegally because they are, to them, criminals. Others believe that they do a lot of good to this country and argue that they should be allowed to stay and legalize some of them. Throughout this paper we will discuss the pros and cons of keeping or deporting illegal immigrants and weather it is beneficial
Thank you for your thoughtful post. In other words, you are asking how can the United States justify not providing affordable health insurance for people residing and working in country? Baiden (2010) offerings two important points, “Most, if not all of these undocumented immigrants work hard and contribute to the country's economic growth” furthermore, “The problem is that such individuals suffer high degree of exploitation at the hands of their employers” (p. 5). Undocumented immigrants are ineligible for government insurance programs, are unlikely to have employer provided insurance, and often do not have the resources to purchase private insurance. Furthermore, research has identified vulnerable populations such as low income, uninsured
What is a illegal immigrant you may ask. Well an illegal immigrant is a person that illegally crossed a country's borders without proper papers and has not gone through an immigration checkpoint to authenticate their papers and baggage.
Illegal immigration has been over the years a huge problem for United States. The illegal immigrants have come into the country for different ways like the Mexico border, the Pacific Ocean, and some of the have entered through a visit visa. But after a period, they stayed illegally. The immigration phenomena is a doubled edged sword. On the one hand, it provides a boost to the local economy because they are not paid so much while they are more productive. The other factor is these people do not pay taxes, and their employers also do not pay their taxes.
They help the economy by starting their own businesses. By creating businesses, they are creating more job opportunities for other immigrants and Americans. In 2011 illegal immigrants started over twenty eight percent of U.S businesses. They also help out the economy by working on farms. If they deported all the illegal immigrants that work on farms there would not be enough americans to replace every illegal immigrant. If they deported half of the illegal immigrant population it would also reduce the economic growth by two hundred fifty billion dollars. But if they removed all of the illegal immigrants working on a farm the economic growth would drop about four hundred billion dollars.
An American citizen who visits other countries is somehow automatically protected, held to certain regards and given certain liberties, which sometimes the “Citizens” of those countries do not receive. Americans can travel to just about any country without a visa or any form of legal documents. Aside from a passport, they can choose to reside in that country simply because they want to without any form of backlash, ill treatment, or fear for their lives. They get some of the better jobs pushing the locals out of those positions. Therefore, illegal immigrants in the United States do have some constitutional rights that citizens have.
Undocumented immigrants provide jobs, pay taxes, and have had many positive outcomes toward the United States therefore, they should be allowed to be granted citizenship without going through all the hardships such as inhumane treatments, labeling/categorizing, harassment and detains. Undocumented immigrants are always supposedly up to no good and seen as the enemy. “There is no need for immigration so why have it?” you may ask. Throughout the years, many people have traveled to the United States from other countries to get a well paying job in order to maintain their families, to provide everything it takes to be successful for their kids, and overall to have a brighter future. Would people with bad intentions actually go through the
This seems to be one of the most popular topics in both political and day-to-day conversations. Here is the simple answer: yes. In other words, yes, undocumented immigrants should be granted amnesty by the federal government. According to the ITEP, unauthorized immigrants as a whole paid $10.6 billion in local and state taxes, so why not give them the life that they’ve already paid for?
Illegal immigration has lots of disadvantages but has equally good advantages that countries like America support immigration and makes illegal residents legalized. Many of these countries are allowing people to cross their borders but also at the same time trying to keep evil as terrorists at check to support a stable and safe society. Nadadur points out to some benefits in "Illegal Immigration: A Positive Economic Contribution to the United States" which are, immigrants pay taxes for the children who are born in the country and making them legal would impact positively on countries economic growth and because of this reason, illegal immigration has become a major problem for political parties in developed country and are working towards an agenda to make the rules around immigration better.
