The Aliens Are Coming! “Illegal Alien, also called an undocumented alien, is a noncitizen living in a country without the proper immigration documents,” explains the World Book Student (DeFrank N.p). Every single day, there are tons of illegal immigrants trying to cross the border into the United States of America. Ever since the beginning of America, there were always immigrants wanting to find a new life in America. The Science Online database explains that “These movements [immigrations] spread culture, language, and trade goods, as well as infections” (Immigration and Incidence N.p). The interesting thing is nobody in America is American; however, outside of America they can be called so. Everyone who lives in America is an immigrant or …show more content…
In a popular World Geography and Culture online poll, “Americans were also more likely to list immigration, including illegal immigration, as the nation’s most pressing problem, moving that issue into fifth place overall” (Poll N.p). This is caused for many reasons. There is a very long and tedious application process, which many people try to avoid. Also, political asylum is what an immigrant can seek if their original country is very oppressive; every case of this must be put through thorough court examination. Many a times, immigrants come to a new country to start a new life away from their poorness or government. Another cause could be, as explained by Mr. Leonard, “The decline of the Mexican economy that began in the late 1970s compelled many displaced laborers to seek employment in the United States” (Leonard N.p). Even though many people use excuses, none of them are an excuse for illegal immigration. One may think that immigration is just people coming into a new country, but it is much more than just that. Excess of it can cause overpopulation, job degeneration, food shortages, water shortages, diseases, crime, and cultural degeneration. This is a problem that needs to be solved - and soon - or it will have a catastrophic domino …show more content…
Deploying more agents in more places, shortening the application process, and building the Great Wall of Mexico can all help contribute to stopping this problem. Doctor Tracy Miller of Western Journalism argues, “Since it costs $23,000 to deport an undocumented immigrant, it would be fiscally irresponsible to try to deport a significant percentage of them” (Miller N.p). With a tax-free wall, it would stop all illegal immigrants, and contribute to goodness around the USA. Immigration is what the United States is based on; however, it is not based on illegal immigration. Even though there are many excuses to help ‘bypass the system’, it doesn’t make it any more legal. Even though the majority of illegals claim that they “considered the decision [of crossing the border] part of their responsibility to help get their families through situations that were no fault of their own, such as crop failure or an economic downturn,” they should at the least take the application process to stay on the right side of the law (Study reveals N.p). If illegal immigration were to be stopped, then so would job degeneration, food and water shortages, disease outbreaks, crimes, and cultural degeneration. Replacing these would be lots of jobs, plenty of supplies and food, less diseases, little crimes, and the thriving of our culture. In fact, the whole word would be positively impacted if this were to
