Crime, drugs, and gangs, what is the first thing that pops into your head when you think of these things? I bet you don’t think that immigration has any connection to the crime rates, but according to cis.org the 1970s and 1980s saw crime rates rise along with immigration levels. Loose border laws lead to increased crime rates such as drugs, and gangs.
Drugs have caused numerous amount of problems in the United States , and around the world. The DEA says that in 2010 there were 30,922 arrests, just in the United States! According to the PEW research group, Hispanics make up 40 percent of federal prison population, but only contributed 13 percent of the country population. California’s prison system’s illegal immigrant population is 13 percent. This 13 percent is about 20,864 people, at $44,563 per prisoner per year, this cost the taxpayers $1 billion per year! Another 7.7 billion is payed by taxpayers to educate illegal immigrant, and 1.4 billion on health care, so using them for cheap labor, really isn’t so cheap when you look at it this way.
Another reason we should have more selective border laws is that Many Hispanic immigrants are involved in gangs. National Gang Center.gov says law enforcement agencies report that a greater percentage of Hispanic/ Latino, and African-American/Black gang members compared with other ethnicities. The most recent statistics provided by law enforcement, are that 50 percent Hispanic/Latino gang members, 32 percent African-American/Black gang members, 10 percent Caucasian gang members, and 8 percent other race/ethnicity. In all types of areas from big cities to rural counties Hispanic, and African-American dominate documented gang members.
Having more strict border laws will conclude in lower crime rates, in areas such as drugs and gangs. According to a staff report of the House Committee on Homeland Security “Not all illegal aliens are crossing into the United States to find work. Law enforcement officials indicate that there are individuals coming across the border who are forced to leave their home countries and seeking refuge in the United States.” Our open border laws are opening doors not only to immigrants wanting to come for better opportunities, but also higher crime rates, more drugs, and more populated, and powerful gangs.
Los estaouidenses tienen que crear leyes mas estrictos. Hay que discutir con todo los representante. Los leyes tienen que estar justo. Hay que pensar con los Mexicanos. Hay que hablar a el gobierno. Los Mexicanos tienen que seguir las leyes.
- Maricopa County, Ariz.: 22 percent of felons are illegal aliens;
- Lake County, Ill.: 19 percent of jail inmates are illegal aliens;
- Collier County, Fla.: 20 to 22 percent of jail inmates and arrestees are illegal aliens;
- Weld County, Colo.: 12.8 to 15.2 percent of those jailed are illegal aliens.
Over the course of many years there have been different opinions of immigration. I have found that many people agree that with immigration, there are many improvements to life. There are many organizations and individuals that agree with immigration because of the advancements immigration brings to life.
Barack Obama is one individual that is pro-immigration. He started revisiting the DREAM act. The DREAM act was first created in 2009. President Obama revisited it this year. He changed it so that any illegal immigrant that is benefiting the United States can get citizenship. The cases for which illegal immigrants can benefit life are they could be a college student and they would be spreading their knowledge or they could be part of our military protecting our country. This would help the immigration issue and improve life of the United States because we would have more educated people and more defenses to the military. He has gotten much criticism about the reformation on the DREAM act but, according to the article Obama on DREAM Act: ‘No is not an option.’ He states, “We didn’t come this far just to let partisan politics stand in our way. No is not an option.”
Another individual that is pro- immigration is Luis Gutiérrez. He’s a leader in on comprehensive immigration reform. He is involved in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Immigration Task Force. This organization focuses on highlighting the real and vital contributions immigrants make to our economy. They also monitor the changes that are made that directly impact immigrants, the immigration policy, and where the immigrants live and work. They look out for the Immigrants that make a difference in the community and our economy and protect them from being deported. They see the good immigration brings and protects it. They protect the immigrants that improve our life.
Many other organizations are pro- immigration also. Organizations like we are America Alliance. They were created in 2006 to work on immigration rights and civic engagement. Civic engagement is the act of engaging in a city environment. Other organizations that are pro immigration and agree that immigration improves life are Border Angels and New American Opportunity.
As said before, there are many opinions on immigration, but with the organizations and people that agree that immigration improves life it validates that immigration does improve life. Immigrants help our workforce. They also help our military and national defense. They come here for many reasons, but for many more reasons they benefit us not only as a country, but it helps with worldwide civility.
