There are many opposing sides when it comes to immigration. Some people think it’s wrong, some people think that immigration brings more benefits than negatives, I, for the other hand have seen both sides and am indifferent on the issue for many reasons.
I have seen both benefits and negatives to the community because of immigration. New immigrants have always had a dynamic relationship with the United States society. There have been many crimes that have been committed by immigrants such as the case with Cornelio Rivera Zamites who molested and strangled 4 year old Esmeralda Nava. Many illegal immigrants are considered criminals by anti-immigration groups. The pro- immigration groups argue that anti-immigration groups are only focused on events like 9-11-2001 and immigrants shouldn’t be considered criminals because crimes are realities of our society. They state that immigrants are no more prone to criminal activity than citizens.
There are just as many benefits as there are problems with the economy due to immigration. The costs of immigration with all the indirect costs every year ends up around $200 billion dollars of U.S. currency. It is estimated that 6-8 million dollars is given to Mexico each year. According to them we are helping another country unknowingly. Pro- immigration groups argue that although immigration costs a lot we earn back twice that amount by having immigrants.
Open immigration and closed immigration both have negatives and positives. Open immigration helps immigrants start a new life. The United States also gets a more diverse workforce. In some instances, it makes a more skilled work force. Open immigration would start to over populate the United States. It also creates a less stable economy. Closed immigration helps keep a more stable economy. Closed immigration doesn’t allow people to make their lives better. Closed immigration is also very difficult to enforce. It also has the gate community effect; where you need a certain amount of people in an area to function properly.
As you can see, there are many positives and negatives for immigration. On the con side there’s many crimes commited by immigrants, it’s expensive, and it helps over populate our nation. One the pro side immigration gives people a new start, it benefits the community, and it makes a better work force. My mutuality within the topic allows me to see both sides of immigration. With the information I have collected, I hope you see the reasoning on my mutuality of this subject.
Tu Debes dicutir el conflicto en la immigracion. Tu Debes respetas el conflicto. Tu Crees que el argumento no es muy bien. Tu no crees que el conflicto es bien. Tu piensas que la policia tienen respeto. Tu piensas que la gente no deber luchar.

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.
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.
