Argumentative Immigration

Decent Essays
Over the years immigration has continued to be a discussion of intense national debate. The effect of immigration has been looked at as positive and negative. The economy and government have been affected in a multitude of ways. The immigrants are offered sources for work and also economic support for them and their families, yet many American citizens are without jobs and struggle to keep a household. Also, many Americans do feel as if they are being pushed to the side when it comes to availability in work sources and the taxes people pay are going to the non natives who don’t work but only live off of others benefits.

Immigration happens for a reason. Whether it be, because there weren’t any jobs or because they want to unite with their family. After the transition of lives, their children have to start somewhere. The major argument about how “Immigrants reap the benefits of the U.S. education system without paying into it,” still goes on until this day (Seth Millstein). The major talk of how all of a sudden migrants have it easy, seems to be the major topic of discussion. Then again people are complaining how immigrants do not have the capability or how it is not needed for them to pay into school, but then others complain when immigrants do not have a job and just relax and do not do anything. The contradicting idea is never-ending. If immigration reform does help more in education, each and every person would be able to pursue careers and better themselves in their …show more content…
The U.S. has been flipped and turned, but there has been much reforming. Immigrants have been affected by the different areas surrounding them, yet they still make a difference to better themselves. It would be extremely selfish for Americans to close off their ideas about immigrants when they do not know the full story. For native-born people to finally come to a realization that immigration affects the U.S. in a positive manner.

    Regardless, there are those who believe illegal immigrants are beneficial to the economy because they do the hard work others don’t want to for less and they produce on average 1.2 jobs, however, there are also those who oppose illegal immigration because of popular beliefs that they cost too much money to host or are taking advantage of the opportunities this country offers in a negative way. It is essential to evaluate and formulate an opinion based on the hard evidence that has been reported about illegal immigration in the past.
