Immigration ruins the economy

Sam Wilson blog 2

Have you heard of the economic issues that have been occurring recently? Many of us have and are affected by it. Many problems these days can be related to the economic crisis because it’s been such of growing problem. Believe it or not, one thing that is impacting the economic issue is illegal immigration.

Many costs due to immigration are major. During these pressing times any amount of money earned would be a good thing. Immigration is holding that back. The costs for the collateral impact of crime, accidents, education, and heath care are really hurting out economy.

Much of the money that is earned by immigrants is sent back home. We’re not talking a couple dollars, or even a couple hundreds. In 2006 it’s estimated that 45 billion dollars of U.S. currency was sent to Mexico. That’s a huge amount of money for anyone, especially a nation that’s over going economic issues. According to the Article ‘Impacts of Illegal Immigration: Economic costs’, that if you added all the direct and indirect costs of immigration that the cost of immigration could exceed 100 billion dollars each year. Also if you added the crimes and traffic accidents that relate to immigration the costs for immigration could be as high as 200 billion dollars. Using the 200 billion dollar figure and 300 million people in the US, that would be roughly 667 dollars for every citizen. Think about what you could get with 667 dollars and you would realize that’s a pretty big deal.

If we added more rights to immigrants, the money that is being taken away because of immigration would increase greatly.  If rights like amnesty would be granted to immigrants it is estimated that the fiscal deficit will grow by about 29 billion dollars. Fiscal deficit is the amount by which a sum of money falls short of the required amount pertaining to the public treasury or revenues. Amnesty is a general pardon for offenses, especially political offenses, against a government, often granted before any trial or conviction.

Immigration isn’t helping the economic issue. If anything, immigration hurts the economy. Immigration will continue to hurt and drain the economy. Immigration does directly affect us and whether we choose to believe that or not is our decision, but based on the facts I gave, it is validated that immigration does hurt our economy. If immigration continues to drain the economy like it has been, where will the economy be in the future?

Llama el repesentante. Entenda la politica. Discute las metas con el gobierno. No piense en luchar. No cree en el argumento. No lucha las personas.
