How can an illegal immigrant become legal?

How can illegal immigrant become legal

An “illegal immigrant” is usually refers to someone who either:
- Entered the United States without legally documentation
- Entered the U.S. with legal visa but then did not depart until the expiration of their authorized stay

There are two ways for an illegal immigrant become legal:
- Qualify as a asylee or refugee
- Comeback to their homeland and apply for reentry under US immigration laws

Remember that, according to US immigration laws, an alien who illegally present in the US for less then 1 year will be prevented for the registration for 3 years. A foreign national illegally present in the US for more than 1 year is prevented for the registration for 10 years.

What is the current immigration policy in the united states?

Current immigration policy in the united statesTaking about the current immigration policy in the united states,some American said that just get across the border into the U.S. and then just stay. You don’t need to learn English, and you don’t need a job. We taxpayers will buy you everything you need. And have lots of babies. Then you can get more money from the government. It’s not the truth but many people are doing that way.

In the real life, U.S. immigration policy has been formed not just by the perceived needs of the nation, but with the needs and ambitions of the immigrants themselves.

Current immigration policy in the united states is a response to the Immigration Act of 1924, which lowered the volume of immigration visas and given them according to national origin. Because the quotas for every single nationality were depending on its percentage of the U.S. population, the program favored northern Europeans and discriminated against Asians. In the 1960s national quotas were finally removed on equity grounds. Equal chance and family reunification became top goals, opening the entrance to bigger flows from Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Immigration policy must deal with a variety of economic, relief, and ethical issues. Central to the raging immigration debate are varying evaluations of the rights of immigrants to get along with their families, to uncover haven from political persecution, to look for a better quality of life, etc

Everything about immigration: Green cards? Citizenship?

Immigration - Coming to America


This may be the year Congress decides what to do about the millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. And this may be the week when a bipartisan group of senators makes public details of the overhaul plan it has been negotiating for months.

But what will that be? Why now? And who are all these immigrants, once you get past the big round numbers?

A big dose of facts, figures and other information to help understand the current debate over immigration:


Major problems with U.S. immigration have been around for decades.

United States immigration

President George W. Bush tried to change the system and failed. President Barack Obama promised to overhaul it in his first term but never did.

In his second term, he’s making immigration a priority, and Republicans also appear ready to deal.

Why the new commitment?

Obama won 71 percent of Hispanic voters in his 2012 re-election campaign, and he owes them. Last year’s election also sent a loud message to Republicans that they can’t ignore this pivotal voting bloc.

It’s been the kind of breathtaking turnaround you rarely see in politics. Plus, there’s growing pressure from business leaders, who want to make it easier for the U.S. to attract highly educated immigrants and to legally bring in more lower-skilled workers such as farm laborers.


Talk about “comprehensive immigration reform” generally centers on four main questions:

- What to do about the 11 million-plus immigrants who live in the U.S. without legal permission.

- How to tighten border security.

- How to keep businesses from employing people who are in the U.S. illegally.

- How to improve the legal immigration system, now so convoluted that the adjective “Byzantine” pops up all too frequently.

illegal immigrants


A group of four Democrats and four Republicans in the Senate, taking the lead in trying to craft legislation that would address all four questions.

US Immigration - Gang of Eight

Obama is preparing his own plan as a backup in case congressional talks fail. There’s also a bipartisan House group working on draft legislation, but House Republican leaders may leave it to the Senate to make the first move.


A record 40.4 million immigrants live in the U.S., representing 13 percent of the population. More than 18 million are naturalized citizens, 11 million are legal permanent or temporary residents, and more than 11 million are in the country without legal permission, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, a private research organization.

Immigration - Coming to America

Those in the U.S. illegally made up about 3.7 percent of the U.S. population in 2010. While overall immigration has steadily grown, the number of immigrants in the U.S. illegally peaked at 12 million in 2007.

The U.S. is the leading destination for immigrants. Russia’s second, with 12.3 million, according to Pew.


Twenty-nine percent of the foreign-born in the U.S., or about 11.7 million people, came from Mexico. About 25 percent came from South and East Asia, 9 percent from the Caribbean, 8 percent from Central America, 7 percent South America, 4 percent the Middle East and the rest from elsewhere.

The figures are more lopsided for immigrants living here illegally: An estimated 58 percent are from Mexico. The next closest figure is 6 percent from El Salvador, says the government.


California has the largest share of the U.S. immigrant population, 27 percent, followed by New York, New Jersey, Florida, Nevada, Hawaii and Texas, according to the Migration Policy Institute, a private group focused on global immigration issues.

California has the largest share of immigrants in the U.S. illegally, at 25 percent, followed by Texas with 16 percent. Florida and New York each has 6 percent, and Georgia has 5 percent, according to the Department of Homeland Security.


Here’s one way to think about the ways immigrants arrive in the U.S: Some come in the front door, others the side door and still others the back door, as laid out in a report from the private Population Reference Bureau.

- Arriving through the front door: people legally sponsored by their families or employers. Also refugees and asylum-seekers, and immigrants who win visas in an annual “diversity” lottery.

- Side door: legal temporary arrivals, including those who get visas to visit, work or study. There are dozens of types of nonimmigrant visas, available to people ranging from business visitors to foreign athletes and entertainers. Visitors from dozens of countries don’t even need visas.

- Back door: Somewhat more than half of those in the U.S. illegally have come in the back door, evading border controls, Pew estimates. The rest legally entered, but didn’t leave when they were supposed to or otherwise violated terms of their visas.


It’s widely accepted that there are more than 11 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

But how do we know that?

Those who are living here without permission typically aren’t eager to volunteer that information. Number-crunchers dig into census data and other government surveys, make some educated assumptions, adjust for people who may be left out, mix in population information from Mexico and tend to arrive at similar figures.

The Department of Homeland Security estimates there were 11.5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally in January 2011. Pew puts the number at 11.1 million as of March 2011.

Demographers use what’s called the “residual” method to get their tally. They take estimates of the legal foreign-born population and subtract that number from the total foreign-born population. The remainder represents those who are living in the country without legal permission.


Simply being in the United States in violation of immigration laws isn’t, by itself, a crime; it’s a civil violation.

Entering the country without permission is a misdemeanor criminal offense. Re-entering the country without authorization after being formally removed can be felony.

Pew estimates that a little less than half of immigrants who lack legal permission to live in the U.S. didn’t enter the country illegally. They overstayed their visas, worked without authorization, dropped out of school or otherwise violated the conditions of their visas.


There are varying and strong opinions about how best to refer to the 11 million-plus people who are in the U.S. without legal permission.

Illegal immigrants?

Undocumented workers?

Unauthorized population?

Illegal aliens?

The last has generally fallen out of favor. Some immigrant advocates are pressing a “Drop the I-Word” campaign, arguing that it is dehumanizing to refer to people as “illegal.”

“Undocumented worker” often isn’t accurate because many aren’t workers, and some have documents from other countries. Homeland Security reports refer to “unauthorized immigrants,” but the agency also reports statistics on “aliens apprehended.”


- Legal permanent residents (LPRs): people who have permission to live in the U.S. permanently but aren’t citizens. They’re also known as “green card” holders. Most of them can apply for citizenship within five years of getting green cards. In 2011, 1.06 million people got the cards.

- Refugees and asylees: people who come to the U.S. to avoid persecution in their home countries. What’s the difference between the two terms? Refugees are people who apply for protective status before they get to the U.S. Asylees are people who apply upon arrival in the U.S. or later.

- Naturalization: The process by which immigrants become U.S. citizens.


Is there an actual green card? Indeed there is.

US green card

It’s the Permanent Resident Card issued to people who are authorized to live and work in the U.S. on a permanent basis. In 2010, the government redesigned them to add new security features – and make them green again.

The cards had been a variety of colors over the years. New green cards are good for 10 years for lawful permanent residents and two years for conditional residents.


There’s a lot of talk about creating a “path to citizenship” for immigrants who are in the U.S. without legal status. But there’s no consensus on what the route should be, and some conservatives reject the idea outright, seeing it as tantamount to amnesty.

US path to citizenship

There is a vigorous debate over what conditions immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally should have to satisfy to get citizenship – paying taxes or fees, passing background checks, etc.

Some Republicans want to first see improvements in border security and in tracking whether legal immigrants leave the country when required. Obama doesn’t support linking the path to citizenship with border security.

Some conservatives want to grant immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally some sort of legal status that stops short of citizenship. Some 43 percent of Americans think those who are here illegally should be eligible for citizenship, one-quarter think they should only be allowed to apply for legal residency, and about the same share think they should not be allowed to stay legally at all, according to a Pew Research Center survey released in March.


Move over LPRs; make way for LPIs.

The president’s draft immigration proposal would create a “Lawful Prospective Immigrant” visa. It would allow those who are here illegally to become legal permanent residents within eight years if they met certain requirements such as a criminal background check. They could later be eligible to become U.S. citizens.


Nothing stirs up a hornet’s nest like talk of amnesty for immigrants who are in the country illegally, although there’s a lot of disagreement over how to define the term.

A 2007 effort to overhaul the immigration system, led by Bush, failed in part because Republicans were dismayed that it included a process to give otherwise law-abiding immigrants who were in the country illegally a chance to become citizens. Critics complained that would be offering amnesty.

All sides know it’s not practical to talk about sending 11 million-plus people back to their countries of origin. So one big challenge this time is finding an acceptable way to resolve the status of those who are in the country illegally.


While the larger immigration debate goes on, the government already is offering as many as 1.76 million immigrants who are in the country illegally a way to avoid deportation, at least for now.

Obama announced a program in June that puts off deportation for many people brought here as children. Applicants for the reprieve must have arrived before they turned 16, be younger than 31 now, be high school graduates or in school, or have served in the military. They can’t have a serious criminal record or pose a threat to public safety or national security.

Applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are averaging 3,300 a day. By mid-March, nearly 454,000 people had applied and more than 245,000 had been approved, with most of the rest still under consideration.

In some ways, the program closely tracks the failed DREAM Act, which would have given many young illegal immigrants a path to legal status. Obama’s program doesn’t give them legal status but it at least protects them from deportation for two years.


The U.S. is in its fourth and largest immigration wave.

First came the Colonial era, then an 1820-1870 influx of newcomers mostly from Northern and Western Europe. Most were Germans and Irish, but the gold rush and jobs on the transcontinental railroad also attracted Chinese immigrants.

In the 1870s, immigration declined due to economic problems and restrictive legislation.

The third wave, between 1881 and 1920, brought more than 23 million people to the U.S., mostly from Southern and Eastern Europe, aided by cheaper trans-Atlantic travel and lured by employers seeking workers.

Then came the Great Depression and more restrictive immigration laws, and immigration went into decline for decades.

The fourth wave, still underway, began in 1965 with the end of immigration limits based on nationality. Foreign-born people made up 1 in 20 residents of the U.S. in 1960; today, the figure is about 1 in 8.


Until the late 1800s, immigration was largely a free for all. Then came country-by-country limits. Since then, big changes in U.S. immigration law have helped produce big shifts in migration patterns.

Among the more notable laws:

- 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act: Abolished country-by-country limits, established a new system that determined immigration preference based on family relationships and needed skills, and expanded the categories of family members who could enter without numerical limits.

- 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act: Legalized about 2.7 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, 84 percent of them from Mexico and Central America.

- 1990 Immigration Act: Increased worldwide immigration limit to a “flexible cap” of 675,000 a year. The number can go higher in some years if there are unused visas available from the previous year.

- 1996 Immigrant Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act. Expanded possible reasons for deporting people or ruling them ineligible to enter the U.S., expedited removal procedures, gave state and local police power to enforce immigration laws.

- Post-2001: In 2001, talk percolated about a new immigration plan to deal with unauthorized immigrants, guest workers and violence along the Mexican border. But the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks of 2001 put an end to that, amid growing unease over illegal immigration.


The last big immigration legalization plan, in 1986, took six years to get done.

The law, signed by President Ronald Reagan, had three main components: making it illegal to hire unauthorized workers, improving border enforcement and providing for the legalization of a big chunk of the estimated 3 million to 5 million immigrants then in the country illegally.

The results were disappointing on two central fronts: The hiring crackdown largely failed because there was no good way to verify eligibility to work, and it took a decade to improve border security. As a result, illegal immigration continued to grow, fueled by the strong U.S. economy.

What did work as intended: Close to 3 million immigrants living in the U.S. without permission received legal status. By 2009, about 40 percent of them had been naturalized, according to Homeland Security.


Census figures show that between 1960 and 2010, immigration from Europe declined while the numbers coming from Latin America and Asia took off. As the immigrants’ points of origin changed, so did their destinations. Concentrations shifted from the Northeast and Midwest to the South and West.

A few Census Bureau snapshots:

- In 1960, there were fewer than 1 million people in the U.S. who were born in Latin America. By 2010, there were 21.2 million.

- In 1960, 75 percent of foreigners in the U.S. came from Europe. By 2010, 80 percent came from Latin America and Asia.

- In 1960: 47 percent of the foreign-born lived in the Northeast and 10 percent in the South. By 2010, 22 percent lived in the Northeast and 32 percent in the South.


The fence between the U.S. and Mexico runs off and on for 651 miles along the 1,954-mile border. Most of it has been built since 2005. At some points, it’s an 18-foot-high steel mesh structure topped with razor wire. At others, it’s a rusting, 8-foot-high thing, made of Army surplus landing mats from the Vietnam War.

The fencing is one of the more visible manifestations of a massive effort over the past two decades to improve border security. The results of that effort are dramatic. Those images of crowds of immigrants sprinting across the border illegally while agents scramble to nab a few are largely a thing of the past.

Two decades ago, fewer than 4,000 Border Patrol agents worked along the Southwest border. Today there are 18,500.

Plummeting apprehension statistics are one measure of change: 357,000 last year, compared with 1.6 million in 2000. The numbers are down in part because fewer are trying to make it across.

The border isn’t sealed but it is certainly more secure.


With tighter border security and years of economic difficulty in the U.S., it turns out that most of the immigrants who are in the U.S. without permission have been there for a while. Just 14 percent have arrived since the start of 2005, according to Homeland Security estimates. In contrast, 29 percent came during the previous five years.

At the peak in 2000, about 770,000 immigrants arrived annually from Mexico, most of them entering the country illegally. By 2010, the pace had dropped to about 140,000, most of them arriving as legal immigrants, according to Pew.


Mexicans, mostly. Since 1986, more than 4 million noncitizens have been deported. Deportations have expanded in the Obama administration, reaching 410,000 in 2012 from 30,000 in 1990. Most of those deported – 75 percent – are sent back to Mexico. Nearly half of those removed had prior criminal convictions. So far, the Obama administration has deported more than 1.6 million people.


Lots of U.S. immigrants who are eligible to become naturalized citizens don’t bother. As of 2010, about two-thirds of eligible immigrants had applied for citizenship, according to the Migration Policy Institute. That lags behind the rate in other English-speaking countries such as Australia and Canada, which do more to promote naturalization.


What’s so great about citizenship?

Naturalization offers all sorts of rights and benefits, including the right to vote and run for office. Naturalized citizens are protected from losing their residency rights and being deported if they get in legal trouble. They can bring family members into the U.S. more quickly.

Certain government jobs and licensed professions require citizenship. Citizenship also symbolizes full membership in U.S. society.

In 2010, there was a 67 percent earnings gap between naturalized citizens and noncitizen immigrants, according to a report from the Migration Policy Institute. Even after stripping out differences in education, language skills and work experience, naturalized citizens earned at least 5 percent more.


Nearly two-thirds of the 5.4 million legal immigrants from Mexico who are eligible to become U.S. citizens haven’t done so, according to a Pew study released in February. Their rate of naturalization is half that of legal immigrants from all other countries combined. The barriers to naturalization cited by Mexican nonapplicants include the need to learn English, the difficulty of the citizenship exam and the $680 application fee.


How do immigrants who are in the U.S. without permission fit into the nation’s jobs picture?

In 2010, about 8 million were working in the U.S. or trying to get work. They made up about 5 percent of the labor force, according to Pew. Among U.S. farm workers, about half are believed to be in the country illegally, according to the Government Accountability Office.

Business groups want a system to legally bring in both more highly skilled workers and more lower-skilled workers such as agricultural laborers. The idea is to hire more when Americans aren’t available to fill jobs. This has been a sticking point in past attempts at immigration overhaul. Labor groups want any such revamped system to provide worker protections and guard against displacing American workers. Current temporary worker programs are cumbersome and outdated.


Current law requires employers to have their workers fill out a form that declares them authorized to work in the U.S. Then the employer needs to verify that the worker’s identifying documents look real. But the law allows lots of different documents, and many of them are easy to counterfeit.

The government has developed a mostly voluntary employment verification system called E-Verify, which has gradually gotten better. But so far just 10 percent of employers are using it, according to the Migration Policy Institute. The system is now required in varying degrees by 19 states.


A big question in the immigration debate centers on how much priority to give to the family members of U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

Under current law, the U.S. awards a much larger proportion of green cards to family members than to foreigners with job prospects here. About two-thirds of permanent legal immigration to the U.S. is family-based, compared with about 15 percent that is employment-based, according to the Migration Policy Institute. The rest is largely humanitarian.

Some policymakers think employment-based immigration should be boosted to help the economy. Advocates for families want to make sure any such action doesn’t come at the expense of people seeking to join relatives in the U.S.


For all the attention being devoted to immigration right now, it’s not the top priority for most people, even for most Hispanics. It ranked 17th on a list of policy priorities in a recent Pew Research Center poll. Among Hispanics, one-third said immigration was an extremely important issue to them, behind such issues as the economy and jobs, education and health care.


The public is divided on what should be done to fix immigration problems. In a recent Pew survey, 28 percent said the priority should be tighter restrictions on immigration, 27 percent said creating a path to citizenship, and 42 percent thought both approaches should get equal priority.


Is life actually better in the U.S.? A little more than half of Mexican adults think so, according to a 2012 Pew Global Attitudes poll. Thirty-eight percent said they’d move to the U.S. if they had the chance. Nineteen percent said they’d come even without authorization.

The Advantages of Family Based Immigration

Legal immigration to the U.S has been established mainly on the work skills or family ties of  prospective immigrants since the passed of Immigration and Nationality Act in 1965. Within the conditions of present immigration law, the family-based immigration category enables lawful permanent residents (LPRs), U.S. citizens or “green card” owners, to take certain members of the family to the United States. There are around 480,000 family-based visas available annually. Family-based immigrants are accepted to the United States either as directly relatives of U.S. citizens or through the family desire system. Family-based immigrants contribute so much to the national fabric, local communities of the U.S. They are account for a big part of domestic economic growth, have an important role in business growth and community development, and are among the most advancing segments of the work force. This fact-sheet gives an introduction to the economic and social benefits connected with family-based immigration. Particularly, it features the primary advantages as a result of the participation of family-based immigrants in the work force, their positive effects to the community.

Family Based immigration

1. Families are important to the social and economic incorporation of newbies.
Due to the general lack of specific public policies for the integration of new immigrants, families and racial communities have ordinarily acted, along with the work place, as effective integrating institutions. Especially, racial communities and families perform as sources of helpful information for newcomers, including chances for employment, entry to credit, and other types of support. Basically, when newcomers arrive on a family-based visa, they’ve information available to enable them to understand the system and turn into employed or start his or her businesses.

2. Family-based immigration has a optimistic influence on business evolution and community betterment.
Family ties enhance the knowledge of immigrant areas which, in return, provide a better condition to build up businesses. In this connection, “case-study data confirms that expanded immigrant families and close-knit immigrant areas simplicity the economic assimilation of recent immigrants and promote investment in U.S. human capital along with the development of businesses.”

Nowadays, foreign-born entrepreneurs create many of the most superb high technology business. Over fifty percent of new companies started in Silicon Valley, symbol of high-tech innovation, by immigrants who came to US on family-based visas. As Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) announced within a House Judiciary Committee hearing, “I often say I am glad that Google is in Mountain View rather than Moscow. Like eBay, Intel and Yahoo!, Google was founded by an immigrant. But it’s worth noting that none of the founders of these companies came to the U.S. because of their skills.”

Since they identify the quality that immigrant families could possibly have in the reborn of rundown neighborhoods, local authorities in many cities-including Boston, Baltimore, Dayton, and Detroit – have introduced programs intended to catch the attention of immigrants and promote their economic opportunity. In reality, what are known as “ethnic neighborhoods” (e.g., Little Saigon, Chinatown, Little Italy) have really been included in revitalization approaches in many major US cities.

3. Immigrants entering the country, a family-based visa tend to move in the socioeconomic scale.
Initial differences in earnings between immigrants based on family and employment-based tend to restrict drastically over time. Despite concerns about alleged low productivity of immigrants based on kinship in the U.S. labor market has shown that “nonoccupation based immigration, most of them family-based, with gains lower income but higher earnings growth in base connected as work related to immigration. Higher earnings growth estimates is sufficient for nonoccupation-immigrant base to catch up with professional immigrants admitted after 11-18 years in the United States. “

New immigrants, most of whom are in the United States with family visas are upward of U.S. workers. This is explained by a high level of post-immigration investments in human capital. This benefits not only the migrants, but also the economy.

4. Brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens, who tend to immigrate under the family visa category fourth preference to experience high self-employment and higher earnings growth.
Empirical research has added to the economic advantage of immigrants as brothers and sisters of U.S. citizens demonstrated no. Not only humanitarian, but for commercial reasons, to keep this category Admission quarter Especially preferred immigrants positively associated with self. Immigrants admitted as siblings of U.S. citizens tend recorded higher initial gains as family immigrants in general. Also, apparently the largest immigrant groups fourth preferential admission experience higher earnings growth over time. These results suggest that any proposal would eliminate counterproductive brother input category.

5. Family tickets are essential for the “care economy” that support essential to the welfare of household members, therefore, current and future employees and facilitate the participation of women.
Health and unpaid childcare in the home contribute largely of immigrants, the physical, cognitive and emotional development of household members. These contributions are crucial not only individual welfare, but also on human development in the country.

Since unpaid household activities and community are held off the market, which are largely invisible in economic statistics. Groups such as the Pan American Health Organization and the International Labour Organization have emphasized the importance of recognizing the role of unpaid work in the home and community.

Migrant women who carry out their work in domestic help. Sustainable current workforce to increase future workforce, caring for the elderly and the sick, and play a crucial role in household welfare His contributions to the economy so they must feel not only directly, but also in the future.

The economic value of unpaid work done by immigrants is a very important part of GDP. Especially “statistics show time using different countries, unpaid work that contributes to the welfare, human capacity building and long-term economic growth, while the highest number of working hours, which can represent more than 50 percent of gross domestic product”.

Participation of immigrant women in the labor force is facilitated by the presence in the home of another family. In other words, if other family members (e.g., parents or siblings) can take care of the daily needs of the family, women are more likely to participate in the labor market. Approved immigrant family who can provide care for children or the elderly at home is therefore a valuable addition to women working for wages.

Far from evil “brain compared with blood” dichotomy

Family Immigration and skill-based can not be regarded as mutually exclusive. In fact, if a minor for families admissions policies are accepted, the United States less attractive to highly skilled immigrants who have families. As an economist found that:

“Family Visas are … an important addition to highly skilled visa, skilled immigrants have families. Moving Given the country, a scientist and not emigrate to a country where their life members of the family, including siblings, parents and adult children, been able to move well, or to a country in which only some of the family would welcome Einstein to live in the U.S., has been unable to speak to his sister Maja? A family friendly policies can be a why the United States has able to attract immigrants with stellar grades have to be. ”

The concept of family reunification is deeply rooted in American values. However, the positive effects of family-based immigration, not only humanitarian but also financially

United States immigration policy pros and cons

The immigration concern has been extremely hot discussion topics in US politics for many years. For a nation based on immigration throughout the entire world, it is really an specially sensitive subject in the USA. Below are some of the main United States immigration policy pros and cons.

United States immigration policy cons

Demographic Issues
As some people said, immigration is everything about numbers. If today’s immigration levels keep going, the American population is estimated to increase to around 450 millions by 2049. To paraphrase, the whole citizens of Mexico are going to be included in the American population within a few decades.

United States immigration policy cons
Communication concern
In the very first time, the US newcomers understand that they would have to learn English to assimilate with the new country. Yet in recent years, some areas of the country are changing into multilingual as fewer immigrants think that they need to study new language. Many of them feel they should never need to study English to speak to other Americans, while others see this as simply acceptable on reasons of enriching USA society and culture

Not too long ago it was calculated that one fourth of U.S. prisoners are immigrants, assisting to validate the concept that the less educated immigrants raises crimes, for example theft, violence an smuggling

United States immigration policy pros.

Cultural Exchange
Immigration could potentially lead to an exchange of thinking, knowing, experience and viewpoints. Because of immigration, Americans have been already familiar with many different cultures widely distinctive from their own, contributing to the richness of the America.

Distribution of Wealth
Many people think that immigration is crucial in starting up the worldwide industry and distributing wealth into less developed countries. Others battle this for the reason that the work and wealth of the US are its property and that immigration permits the distribution of wealth to people who it doesn’t truly belong to.

United States immigration policy pros

The Economy
Some people said that without illegal immigrants, the US economy would be damaged ’cause they are making up a big slice of the U.S. cheap work force. One counter-point is that illegal immigrants would normally get replaced by legal immigrants, which could become more useful to the economy. Additionally, many Americans believe that the prices of offering services, including healthcare and education, to illegal immigrants are a massive and problem on the U.S. taxpayer, reducing the economic development.

Exchange of Expertise
Many nations are losing their skilled, educated minorities to the U.S. This is known as a “brain drain,” or a drain of disproportionate numbers of skill and knowledge from one nation into another.
