The problem of illegal immigration in America.

Extracts from this document...


Madhur Mahajan CVP Outline I. Introduction The admission of illegal immigrants into USA is an issue which is certainly going to have a lot of debates over it. Illegal immigration plays a great role in the fall apart of the US economy. The question here is not how to make US regain its greatness but is how to stop illegal immigration? The admission of new illegal immigrants in the US is not the only problem faced by America right now; departing the current illegal immigrants is also a problem that needs to be solved. Some of these unfortunate people have already been deported out of America and we can't blame the US government for it. Harboring the illegal immigrants and their families requires a lot of money which leads into the depreciation of this country's economy. They are accused of stealing jobs from the American citizens and account for 2.8 million jobs in the US workforce.(Illegal immigration....Finds). This is an issue which will not stop until some serious action is taken against it, deporting illegal immigrants is surely a way to solve this problem but why do we let them come in illegally in the first place. Something fast and easy is requires to make USA become the land of opportunity once again. Background The history of illegal immigration starts from when America was a free country and many people migrated here but after some time the migration was out of control and needed to be stopped and hence in 1924 U.S. ...read more.


(11.2 Million....'09). About 350,000 babies were born in 2009 to families with at least one illegal immigrant parent, a number also unchanged from the previous year, representing about 8% of all newborns. (11.2 Million....'09). About 98% of the US residents are descendants from immigrants. "A 1986 law gave legal status to nearly three million aliens who were in the country illegally". (U.S. Immigration and Naturalization). Instead of departing the illegal immigrants from US, the US government is passing laws, which are making them legal citizens. Turning 3 million illegal immigrants into US citizens means giving them at least 1 million jobs which could have caused a significant decrease in the rate of unemployment if given to the US citizens. V. Expenses The single largest cost to the government of illegal immigration, according to a report, is an estimated $52 billion spent on schooling the children of illegal immigrants.(Illegal Immigration.... Finds) Schools in America are for public and most of them are free for residents but are paid by the government. Children of illegal immigrants increase the government spending as they go to schools which are run by the government. "The single biggest 'expense' it attributes to unauthorized immigrants is the education of their children, yet most of them are native-born, U.S. citizens who will grow up to be taxpaying adults," said Walter Ewing, a senior researcher at the American Immigration Council. ...read more.


Thirdly, if any illegal immigrants still manage to sneak into USA there should be rules and laws that will create problems for them hence not letting them survive and going back to their own country. VIII. Conclusion Deportation of illegal immigrants will let this country to be illegal immigrants free which can help the government decrease the unemployment rate and will slowly help the government to pay off their debt as the money spent towards illegal immigrants will now be extra and can be paid towards the debt which will in turn help to fix and maintain a strong economy. With more jobs the citizens of America would be happy too and America will be again called "the land of opportunity". The deportation of illegal immigrants will also help people who are waiting in the queue either for their visa, green card or citizenship as now after deporting the illegal immigrants US will be able to accommodate even more legal immigrants. This will also fetch the government more money as the new legal immigrants would pay taxes rather than the illegal immigrants who did not pay taxes. It will also help the US to not increase its population. "The presence of illegal aliens stimulates a wide-ranging debate about national resources such as jobs, housing, education, and the environment. If there are no illegal immigrants in the United States then there will be an end to this debate and other debates like this would not arise. ?? ?? ?? ?? Page 1 of 5 ...read more.
