There are many mixed reviews on the topic of immigration. Should we continue to allow immigrants to come into our country, both legally and illegally? As a country, should we tighten the borders? Should we require every person living in the USA to be registered with a new National Identity Bureau (Park)? At some point something needs to give. Our economy is in the worse shape in that has been in years. The unemployment rate is at the highest point that has been in years, and there are many illegal immigrants working, while many citizens and legal residents remain unemployed. As a country we need to stop the problem, and develop a proper system for handling immigration. Not only are the employment opportunities affected by illegal immigrants coming to our country, but the welfare system is also abused. Many immigrants come to the United States to have their children. They use our county hospitals to give birth, and our government aid to take care of them. They also come and have children in American so that they can have a better chance of bringing the rest of their family to the United States. Citizens of Mexico have also been known to abuse this law: When they give birth inside the USA, they have established a foothold by having an US citizen in the family. This child might later be used to facilitate entry and citizenship for the parents and later other family members (Park). On the other hand, there are countless cases of immigrants that do abide by our laws, and contribute to our society in very positive ways, and are unable to bring their families to our Nevitt 2 country to enjoy their life together. Often the rigid enforcement of immigration rules and regulations results in nuclear families being broken up because not.
. . to better our country and that should be our main focus. We need to tighten our borders and enforce the laws that we have made as a county. Let us deal with the immigrants that are already here and stop letting more in, until we have a better system in place. The system that is in place now, is obviously not working.
