Inside US illegal immigration!

Stop the non stop problem of Illegal immigration!

Since the 1960s the US has undergone a surge of illegal immigration. Illegal immigrants account for more than ⅓ of the US immigrants population. In 1986 congress enacted a law to reduce illegal immigration by getting Asian and latin Americans out of the US but now more than 80% of the US illegal immigration population is either Latin American or Asian. In 1986 the Immigration Reform and Control act (IRCA) was put into place to remove illegal aliens from the US labor markets. Also Employer sanctions were made to try to lower illegal alien labor.

The amount of Mexican immigrants quickly increased in the second decade of the 20th century. Most illegal immigrants enter the US by the US/Mexican border or by overstaying their visas. Mexico is the largest country for illegal immigration and its because of the large economics downturn. In 2011 US census it was recorded that 40 million people are immigrants. With 30% being from Mexico. US has come up with many ideas to try and stop this problem but none are a good fix. They have tried to secure the borders with more guards and making it harder for immigrants to live here.
