not only benefits the U.S., but it benefits the immigrants themselves. In continuation, Davidson states that over the years, “undocumented workers have contributed up to $300 billion, or nearly 10%, of the $2.7 trillion Social Security Trust Fund.” Just these numbers alone show how much immigrants are contributing to the U.S. To support this conclusion, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) concludes that immigrants contribute more in taxes and social contributions than they actually receive in benefits. (OECD 2014) In other findings by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), undocumented immigrants contribute in state and local taxes. ITEP estimates $11.74 billion are collect per year and, shockingly,
In recent years, the thought of several million illegal immigrants has become a giant debate. With that, many questions arise. Do they need to be deported? Does a better defense system need to be created for future immigrants? Do they all need to be legalized? The U.S. welcomes all types of people, especially those who are wanting to work and help better the economy. However, when entering the country without going through proper protocol, that is when trouble begins. Illegals living within U.S. borders should be considered criminals and not entitled to benefits.
Benefits for Illegal Immigrants George W. Bush, former president of the United States of America once said, “America is a nation of immigration; immigration is good for America and for those who come here seeking freedom and opportunity.” In our country today, one of the most heated ongoing debates addresses illegal immigrants and their right to benefits as people residing in the United States. Undocumented illegal aliens should unquestionably receive benefits because our country itself was constructed and founded by immigrants, the tremendous amount of money they pump into our economy through taxes will never return to them as they do to us, and they are willing and able to do work that most Americans wouldn’t even think of attempting to do.

Illegal immigrants are always entering our country, they make our country. There should be a way that can make illegal immigrants gain citizenship while also benefiting us, and there can be. A place where diverse cultures and people can congregate and create a beautiful mix of foods, arts, and language. Immigration is such a great experience for America making it thrive, survive, and grow to be what it is today. Illegal immigration has distaste for it, cultural divide, harassment, and stereotypical views.
