Immigration is a major argument in the U.S. today, even though immigrants have been in this great country since the 13 colonies. People see immigrants as criminals who shouldn’t be here because they overpopulate, take jobs, or damage this nation. Although hated, hundreds of immigrants continue to cross the U.S. border daily to come find a better life. What people don’t see is the benefit that immigrants have brought to the U.S. I believe that the United States should allow illegal immigrants from all over the world, since they bring many benefits that will help this country to be successful. Immigrants are a positive influence on the United States of America.
America is famously known throughout the world by the nickname “The Melting Pot”. The reason behind this is that the United States is an extremely diverse country and has many different races and people. Immigrants give America the chance to know and learn about many different cultures and styles. They have brought culture religion, economic benefits, and ideology to America. For example these people have brought different styles of cooking and food which is now sold in many successful American restaurants. Also people also bring a really big promise, which is to do whatever comes in the way in order to have a better life then in their native county.
People have described immigrants as being criminals and a bad influence to the people and the United States. They think that immigrants should evacuate the country, since they are only here to overpopulate it and make it look bad. Overpopulation cannot be true since immigrants only take up merely half of the U.S. population. Immigrants are not criminals, on the other hand they are only here for one reason, and that is to work. They are the ones who go through those hard labor jobs that Americans don’t want to do, Construction work, picking the produce that is sold daily, or even cleaning your toilets. Without immigrants the fruit wouldn’t be picked, houses wouldn’t be made, lawns wouldn’t be cut and this country would go to failure.
American Immigration Policy Immigration has held a major role in shaping our country. Immigrants have provided many things such as customs, manufacturing, inventions, and entertainment. Many people today don't realize how greatly we have been affected by immigration. A survey was given to ten people. The survey contained a list of people who were all immigrants. When asked how many actually were, ...
Although hated, immigrants from different parts of the world come to th United States to find a better life. Yet when they arrive, people look and treat them like they are worthless. Would you take that from anyone? Life in other countries can be horrible, for example in Mexico, don’t even have enough money to feed the whole family so they have to share what one person would eat, in between 5 to 9 people. Also getting sick would be very bad news, you would have to spend months worth of work to pay the necessary medicine, leaving you and your family withoutt money for food, clothes, Ect. This is the reason why people leave their native countries, the come here to work so that every month, they can send money back home so that the family can survive. People live with out seeing there family ever again, can u imagine leaving your kids to go work but you never get to see them again? It’s a horrible thought isn’t it? Its also a horrible feeling to know one of your family members is sick or in critical conditions but there isn’t anything you can do about it all because you aren’t born here. Immigrants go through this and a lot more just to help out their families, but by doing this they’re also helping the Nation. So don’t you think these people need more respect or equality? Immigrants are human beings like any other and I don’t think where we are from or what color we are, we should all be treated equally.
In conclusion, immigrants have lived in this country since the beginning, so why is immigration still a problem today? Immigrants should not be considered criminals because they are the opposite, to me they are heroes and the reason why this country is one of the richest Nations in the world. These people are only here because back home they don’t have what is necessary to survive. I believe Immigrants should be allowed to live here in the U.S. because they are a great help in every way possible. People should treat others like they want to be treated and I’m sure nobody would like to be treated the way immigrants are.
