Often times people are quick to looking at the negative things immigration can cause which in the reality immigration creates so many opportunities to both the countries people are moving from and the countries that are welcoming the people. Immigration is an important factor in the improvement of any nation because it supplies multicultural, economic,political and social growth.

Could possibly stop racial profiling.

The practice of racial profiling is based on stereotypes and assumptions as opposed to facts. For example Donald trump is a very out spoken person he sometimes may go overboard with his language such as when he claimed "Mexicans come to steal American jobs and some are rapist" America is a land of free opportunity it would be irresponsible for an immigrant to come miles away from their home land to waste the opportunity the get. It is also disappointing to have to live in a society full of educated people who's main concern is race or ethnicity, hopefully immigration can help others look beyond someone's race and be willing to work together to build a better nation.

Seeking better educational and living standards.

Most immigrants who migrate at a younger age which could be early 20's all the way up to mid 30's they seek a better education which can build into a career. With the population rapidly increasing and the high demand for occupations it's increased the standards of levels of education. Most jobs today are not hiring people just based off how long they been in school but what they've earned in school as well as other contributing factors. Immigrants seek a better education mainly because they want to be able to live a better life and that helps to develop a better nation. Apart from getting a good high quality immigrants also seek a better standard of life, a life they can look back at and be proud to say they has fun and made the best out of their life

Creation of jobs.

Often when critics of immigration state their case they often times only focus on labor market which isn't the main point of immigration. immigration patterns affect industries in a different way which certainly has a huge impact on the pay of workers. Critics overlook the increase demand for services that come along with the growing population. Immigrants are willing to work low pay jobs with require skill and/or little or no skill jobs, which in the reality the average american would rather not work low paying construction jobs because society has manipulated our minds to think such jobs are for "illegal immigrants". Overall immigration creates more jobs because the population is increasing hence the demand of goods and supplies.
