Illegal Immigration: A U.S. Concern

Illegal Immigration: A U.S. Concern

During a large period of time, many illegal immigrants come to the United States to have a better life. But, their dreams did not come true because they were sent back to their originally place. Some people ask their selves the same question. Why they came to the United States? They are not going to have the same rights as an American person has. Nowadays we are in a great depression, a time when our economy is not flowing as well as before. In some restaurants they’re hiring some illegal immigrants where they are not paid the appropriate amount but the minimum wage which is less. In those kinds of work places, they don’t ask much for legal papers. American people think that we don’t want illegal people to be here, because we pay taxes and not them. That is not fair for those of us that live here in the United States. If they came to the United States because they think they must have a better life they must paid for their taxes as us. Over the past 12 years, billions of dollars have been spent on border-control measures, including walls and fences in urban areas, electronic sensors and more personnel. (Katel).Illegal immigrant Amnesty should not permit illegal immigrants to stay in the United States because of the influx of an undesired population, laws should be obeyed, and to contribute to a higher crime rate.

To begin with, the government should not grant amnesty to illegal aliens, because our economy can’t sustain an overwhelming growing population that are not even citizens . Chaze claims that illegal laborers, willing to work hard in substandard conditions for minimum wages, are displacing many Americans who compete for the same jobs. (Anzovin). Regardless of the penalties imposed any program that grants individuals who are unlawfully present the legal permission to remain here rewards illegal behavior and is unfair to those who obey the law and go through the regula¬tory and administrative requirements to enter the country legally. Those who enter to the United States should not be rewarded with permit legal status or other such benefits. They should be penalized in any road of citizens. The only fair way to resolve this problem is by to insist that individual’s country who have violated immigration statues should leave and then apply for admission through the legal meanings.
In addition to being a nation of immigrants, the U.S. is a nation of laws that all citizens are expected to obey. They are some laws that pertain to immigration and help them to become a full-fledged U.S. citizen. You just have to take a state test to be a citizen. It has like 50-100 questions that they have to study. They should made another test state that if they want to work or lived here they must past the exam and have permission card to be here in the United States. People that they must do that they would send it to their place or arrest the person. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokeswoman Ernestine Fobbs said the agency’s Office of Detention and Removal Operations deported to 195 countries a total of 280,523 illegal immigrants during fiscal 2007 — which ended Sept. 30. (Jackson).Based on online sources, approximately like 2.00 million of immigrants entered the U.S. legally last year. During the same year, more than 186,000 illegal immigrates were deported from the U.S. The actual number of illegal immigrants in Texas is unknown, but the federation for American immigration reform citizens. Immigration and Naturalization service estimates that there were approximately 1.04 million illegal immigrants in the State of Texas as of the year 2000.

Finally, another disadvantage of illegal immigrants is the some of them have turns to criminal activities. Some of illegal immigrants cause to many problems here in the United States were there criminals in their homeland, it still have continued keep it having a bad behavior here in the United States. The majority of this criminal activity is gang-related. These arrests were in response to a spree of gang-related crimes, including robbery, assault, and murder. Angel Maturino Resendiz, who became known as the “Railway Killer,” illegally entered the United States on numerous occasions from Mexico beginning at age fourteen. For the next twenty-five years, he racked up arrests and convictions in America ranging from trespassing, destruction of property, burglary, aggravated battery, and grand theft auto to carrying a loaded firearm and false representation of United States citizenship. (Malkin). There are too many consequences the open border that allows immigrants to enter the U.S. illegally. One of these consequences is the illicit drug trade and some illegal immigrants just entering to the United States to transport drugs across the border.

Illegal immigration they be costly are in the United States, they came from Mexico to enter to the United States just to cause some problems. Such if they would enter to US the government would save a lot of money. This is because there is violence, including robberies and murder. It affects the US because money has to be spent on healthcare and education for immigrants.
