The good and bad

People support both sides of immigration laws; I can’t really say I have an opinion that goes one way. I have understood both sides of the issue, and I do think that both sides have valuable facts that support their claims.  I do think that many people choose a side before they try to see the other.

               On the closed border laws, I see crime rates do increase with immigration. With open border laws we may be letting people in who broke laws in their country. We have shown that we lost control of our southwest borders. As much as 2.2 million kilograms of cocaine and 11.6 million kilograms of marijuana were smuggled into the United States across the Mexican border in 2005. The majority of illegal immigrants are not directly associated with the drug trade. The DEA states that their presence allows Mexican traffickers to effectively conceal their activities. With so many people coming into the United States; our population is rising, and it is harder for people to find jobs, having illegal immigrants here doesn’t help our own economic problems

               The pro-immigration side has good points also. Mexican people many times are trying to get away from the crime that has control of their country.  With the downfall of two Columbian cartels, Medellin and Cali, two powerful Mexican drug cartels, Sinaloa and the Gulf, are battling over the billion dollar drug trade between Mexico and the United States. If you had to worry about your child being taken and used in drug cartels, you would want better for them. All parents want their children to have a better life than they did, even if they had a successful and comfortable life. You have to see things through other’s eyes; they can take a chance at coming here and giving their child a safe place to live, but risk being caught and sent back, or stay there and risk being killed during the drug war.  We want to show the countries that look up to us that we should accept other cultures.

               I think that both sides have strong points and I understand where both sides think their ideas should be used, so I can’t really say that I have an opinion that says I believe one or the other.

Penso que los mexicanos no mal.Creo que los estadonidenses quierer la mejor por los Estados Unidos.Los mexicanos y los estadonidenses deben acuerdo.Penso que  los representante deber discuten el problema.Creo que los dos lados esta correcto con ellos vision.La gente deben actuan bien.
