Donald Trump Pros And Cons

Good Essays
As the 2016 election approaches, the presidential candidates and citizens await the decision of who will be the next leader of the United States of America. Donald Trump, a republican candidate, should not be elected president due to his immigration policy. After reading the book Just Like Us, by Helen Thorpe, Donald Trump is surely the wrong candidate. The immigration policy of Donald trump, is not a feasible and realistic policy. The policy will not move our nation forward in the quest to repair an increasingly conflict-ridden immigration system because his policy is racist, he plans to deport millions of people, and it is simply unrealistic.

Donald Trump will have to track down the approximate 11.5 million illegal immigrants in the United States (Colorado Alliance). Trump plans on finding 11.5 million people and deporting them using government funded deportation squads (Trump, Donald). It will be very difficult to know who is an illegal immigrant and who is not. It will be very difficult to find citizens who will be willing to take this dangerous job. Also immigrants work in communities and are crucial to keep the economy from crashing. Trump claims that all illegal aliens are taking all our jobs but if immigrants did not do these jobs, the US would have an even higher unemployment rate(On The Issue, Web). The book Just Like Us explains how it is very hard for illegal immigrants to work because they do not have social security numbers. Yadrina and Marisella, characters that have a difficult time finding jobs without social security numbers in Just Like Us, end up finding work can provide for themselves and their families. Typically the work of undocumented people in the United States is more dangerous and difficult, often times the jobs immigrants take on are the jobs that American citizens would never want to do. This shows how important immigrants are to the United States work force because they contribute so work and get paid very little.

Trump’s immigration policy will fail because it is racist, his ideas are unrealistic, and he will not be able to successfully deport 11.5 million people. A better immigration policy to implement would be to give people a pathway to citizenship. After all, America was created through immigration. America could better the immigration policy by helping illegal immigrants or people in difficult situations help to get them out of negative situations. The policy would also be improved with a more timely immigration process, rather than huge waitlists and difficult applications. Donald Trump’s immigration policy would not benefit any

    Because undocumented immigrants are willing to be paid less, Americans struggle to compete for the jobs. We have Americans out of work, but foreigners having more jobs than American citizen does not make sense. According to Donald Trump’s website, he wants to “put the needs of working people first” (“Immigration Reform”). This idea leads to Trump’s big plan of building a wall which is needed to prevent illegal immigration. Even though many may think building a wall is rude, I personally think it is just a clever way to prevent undocumented immigrants from entering; however, I do not agree with Trump’s plan to make Mexico pay for the wall.…

    Trump’s aggressiveness on immigration is unconstitutional. His dictator-like qualities, such as punishing those who burn the American flag, can be compared to when Hitler punished those who questioned his authority and went against his beliefs. Forcefully removing undocumented immigrants would mean spending government money and raising our tax dollars. Many citizens will not want to pay taxes so the government could deport a family member from the country. All in all, the strong united nation we have built could soon come to an end because of America’s poor decision…

    Trump then continues to discuss that illegal immigrants are by definition, lawbreakers, and refers to them as “illegal aliens” due to the fact that illegal immigrants are often members or violent gangs. (138-139). Economically, illegal immigrants are hurting the United States. Illegal immigrant children often need special language specialists and classes, which takes time and resources away from students who are actually U.S. citizens. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, U.S. taxpayers “shell out” $52 billion annually to educate these “illegal aliens” (140).…

    Illegal immigrants do not pay taxes, which worsens this debt and burdens the economy. In order to subsidize illegal immigrants’ lack of tax paying and the so-called “free” governmental programs, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, that they take advantage of, Americans’ taxes increase greatly (Why Illegal Immigration is Bad for America). It is not financially smart to…

    Also, many believe a reform will undermine the current immigration laws and those who waited for a legal visa to enter the United States. If another immigrant in another country had to wait to migrate to America legally, why should an immigrant who came here illegally get to stay too? To some, it is simply just not fair to pass an immigration reform bill. Another concern for those against a reform bill is that immigrants take jobs that could otherwise go to natural-born Americans. Since most immigrants are willing to work at such low wages, most employers prefer hiring them over American workers who will eventually demand a higher wage.…

Illegal immigrants unfortunately don 't have many job options, they jobs they could and do get are ones that don 't require a degree. US citizens without degrees are the ones competing with illegal immigrants, they tend to squander; typically an illegal immigrant will work more for less since they first starting off in the country.…
