  • Immigration FactsThe U.S. admits about 660,000 legal immigrants per yearThe Immigration Act of 1990 allows for 480,000 immigrants with family in the US; 140,000 immigrants in needed employment fields; and the rest per-country limits and diversity limits. Foreign-born people accounted for 8% of the US population in the 1990 census, in the decades prior to 1930, the figure was 13%In 1996 about 5 million illegal aliens reside in the US, today our count is close to 20 million55% of all illegal aliens come from Mexico, 40% live in California The illegal alien population is growing by about 275,000 each year

    How did this problem develop?The Industrial Revolution was a big impact of how immigration developed. Many immigrants came over to the United States as an escape from poverty, political and or religious freedom. Also, there were many jobs available for immigrants here in the states. Education was also a big reason for immigrants to come over. the US offered free public education which was very desirable by the immigrants.

  • There are an outstanding number of immigrants, both legal and illegal, in the United States. Over 12 million illegal immigrants are residing in the United States. Immigrants are helping the economy, however many immigrants are taking jobs many American born citizens claim are their jobs. According to a study by Rice University, illegal aliens were displacing roughly 730,000 American workers every year, at an outstanding amount of about $4.3 billion a year. In addition, the supply of cheap labor depresses the wages and the working conditions of the working citizens, who are in fact poor.

    Many immigrants are coming to America as students, educating themselves, and then ultimately going back to their home countries. This enhances the education of other countries education, and not ours, this will ultimately lead to a worst economyIn todays economy, the unemployment percentage in the U.S. is higher than ever. Immigrants are taking jobs that Americans need.

  • After a recent passage of an Arizona law, racial profiling is a very big deal in the United States. Immigrants of foreign ethnicity are being discriminated against.

    The costs of illegal immigration to the taxpayer are incredibly high, but the largest costs are for things such as education of their children and emergency medicare. Despite being ineligible, some illegal aliens also get welfare the same way they get jobs: with identity documents falsely identifying them as U.S. citizens. In addition, if they have U.S.-born children, they may collect welfare assistance in the name of those children. For example, the cost immigration for California alone is over 10.5 billion dollars alone.

    Many immigrants are working, making steady money, contributing to our economy, however they are sending lots of money back to their home countries. This causes a positive impact on their countries economys, and a negative impact on our countrys economy

  • Our nation is made of people from all over the world, called immigrants. According to the Census Bureau, there were an estimated 8.7 million illegal aliens living in the United States in 2000. FAIR (federation for American immigration Reform) estimated there were between 10-12 million illegal aliens residing in the country in 2005. According to the Migration Policy Institute, roughly 500,000 illegal aliens are added to that population every year. If this trend continues the number of illegal immigrants (aliens) will be over 25 million in 2020.

    Crime has been a factor in immigration in the United States. As the number of legal and illegal immigrants rises, crime percentage will increase at the same rate.

    As you know, many immigrants are taking jobs meant to be taken for American citizens. Already, numerous jobs are being taken up by immigrants. If in twenty years, the number of jobs taken by immigrant rises at the same rate. Many Americans will be unemployed, and in true need of money.

  • An average of $1,117 is spent every year towards cost set for illegal immigrants.

    According to a Fox news study, the cost in total including general education, healthcare and incarceration is a staggering 113 billion dollars per year.

    It estimated that illegal immigrants add $245 billion in Gross Domestic Product to the economyGross Domestic Product (GDP) representsthe total dollar value of all goods and services produced over a specific time period ,you can think of it as the size of the economy. Usually, GDP is expressed as a comparison to the previous quarter or year. It is commonly referred to, to gauge the health of the economy.

  • Democratic PartyRepublican PartyKnown as the peaceful party, the Democrats rally for personal freedom, equal rights, civil liberties, equal opportunity and free endeavor.Democrats want to give illegal immigrants a chance to prove their worth and become citizens in the land of the free. Although Americans do come first in terms of legal protections and rights that Democrats fight for, their views extend to people beyond the American borders as well.

    They will passionately fight to protect American borders and those who live legally within them. Their pride and patriotic protectiveness make Republicans much more likely to enter war than Democrats. Republicans often believe that many foreigners want to "invade" the U.S rather than become part of it. They argue that any leeway and forgiveness at all will cause a rush from Latin America, and other areas from around the world.
