Should Immigration Be Illegal In The United States?
What Is Immigration?
-Based on the research conducted, it has been proven that because of the immigrants from the south it has helped with our economy and many U.S. companies. With many immigrants in the work force, it helps reduce prices of products and create much more opportunities.
"Foreign students made up 23 percent of the students at Columbia University in 2001; 20 percent of students at the University of Southern California; and 15 percent of students at New York University. More than 16,000 foreign students were enrolled in these three private universities in 2001."
-According to the data in 2001, more than 16,000 foreign students were enrolled in one of three private schools that are hard to get accepted by. Columbia University, University of Southern California, and New York University are some of the top schools in the U.S. that are hard to get into which proves that young immigrants could change the economy here.
"Immigration has a major effect on the size, distribution, and composition of the U.S. population. Because fertility and mortality have fallen to relatively low levels in the United States, immigration's role in the growth of the national, state, and local populations has increased in recent decades."
-Now that fertility rates have fallen ever since in the United States, our population growth is slowly not increasing a lot which can be a problem. But ever since immigrants began to enter our borders, the U.S. population rises much faster. Without immigration, we would have an unstable fertility and population growth.
"In urban areas particularly, college-educated immigrants outnumber high school-educated immigrants by 25 percent in 44 large U.S. cities."
-In 44 large U.S. cities, there are 25 percent more college-educated immigrants than high school-educated immigrants which shows that most immigrants here in the U.S. are looking for opportunities to form a better life and future of their own. Immigrants from foreign countries should be allowed to form their own future and life without dealing with any problems because of the law.
"What's most important is that children of Latino immigrants must be prepared for higher education. That involves starting education early and preparing them for a labor market that can support them. This is critical for the future of the U.S. If we don't address this issue, major problems will arise."
-Children of Latin immigrants should receive a proper education here in the U.S. so that they could get a job in the future and possibly a better future of their own.
