Mexican- American immigrants, especially, are willing to work. Sadly, the people in the work force tend to hire those who will work for cheaper instead of doing what is legal and hiring an American citizen for the deserved wages.
It is only a matter of years before those foreign to

Americans allowing newcomers are risky. Terrorism is heard of more now than ever. Revealing in all parts of the US, in all forms. The process of becoming a citizen is not easy to complete. Yet thousands attempt, and succeed, on entering this country. This alone is enough to raise a few eyebrows and question these intruders’ intentions. Negotiating admittance is a tricky subject.

This topic is argued over every single week if not day within the media, the government and between people.
