America is a combination of the culture of thousands of immigrants who settle in the US annually. These immigrants have brought their culture to the US and in one way or another theyve made a change in the country, whether through economy, education, work, or the military force. Without immigrants America would a totally different country. In order to provide opportunities to immigrants those who were brought to the U.S to get better education and stable job that could provide a family is also beneficial for our economy, security, and for nation. According to Reason.org (Shikha Dalmia) The primary reason for this is that the case for open borders is counterintuitive. It is hard to see how, in a world with finite resources, allowing more people into a country would enhance its prosperity instead of leading to overcrowding, more job competition and lower wages. This explains what are the negative side of the open borders in United States. Many people might get affected by this however it also includes how this will better our economy. Closing the borders strongly shortens the freedom of billions of people around the world. Some people argue that it lead to dangerous situations for example Whenever you want to limit other peoples freedom in these ways, you need a good confirmation. So why would governments be justified in closing their borders Here are some famous reasons. Perhaps that the vast majority of immigrants are precarious people, and that this is the reason why borders can be justly closed. Or maybe they worry that immigrations would inspire different beliefs on our culture, or it might want to protect the wages and jobs of U.S citizens, some of whom might lose their positions to more competitive foreigners. One type of border is called controlling border. A controlled border means that the person who is entering is being documented and recording people movements across the border for later checked compliance with any condition associated with the Visa or other permission papers. This indicates that the government controls borders and every person gets background checked. A controlled border has limitations on what a person crossing the border. Government hires trusted employs to restrict the borders. Also it limits the length of time the person can legally remain in the new jurisdiction. A controlled border often requires some type of barrier, such as a river, ocean or fence from preventing loose track of control. The economic case for open borders its best for country with larger population would have many advances. No government, except perhaps North Koreas, would dream of trying to ban the movement of goods and services across borders trying to remove the movement of most people who produce goods and services is equally self-defeating. When it comes to the domestic economy, politicians are forever urging people to be more free, and to move to where the jobs are provided. This question always pops out in every politicians mind but if it is a good thing for people to move from Missouri to California in search of a better job, why is it so terrible for people to move from Mexico to the U.S. to work Globally, freer immigration contributes greatly to the worlds economy. Richer countries benefit greatly when workers from poor countries immigrate and take advantage of those countries capital system, technologies and institutions.Their economies become much more successful.Economists estimate that the worlds economy would double if immigrants were allowed to move more freely.Even a small reduction in immigration regulation could make big improvements. From an ethical point of view, it complicated to argue against a policy that would benefit the poor than ourselves. In fact a typical immigrant ends up 20,000 per year better off. And its not just the migrants themselves who gain its their countries of origin, too. Already, migrants born in poor countries and working in rich ones send money to their family…
the population of the United States grew from 4 million to 106 million. About 1 million new immigrants —most of them European—had arrived each year, and by the 1920 census, the foreign-born comprised more than 13 percent of the U.S. population. Responding to public anxieties about this large influx of newcomers, Congress passed the Quota Act in 1921, which set a cap of 360,000 new immigrants per year. This act also established a nationalorigins preference that favoured immigrants from England, Scandinavia…
“We need immigration reform that will secure our borders, and… that finally brings the 12 million people who are here illegally out of the shadows... We must assert our values and reconcile our principles as a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws.”- Barack Obama, June 28, 2008
“America’s immigration system is outdated, unsuited to the needs of our economy and to the values of our country. We should not be content with laws that punish hard-working people and deny businesses willing workers…

United States of America and immigrants
America is home to many immigrants from all over the world. However, majority of undocumented immigrants are uneducated and lack the standard skills needed. Therefore based on this knowledge, the U.S should open up its border to allow for more skilled and educated immigrants to benefit the country and its hard working citizens.
Immigrants founded the United States and this “melting pot” of ethnicities makes us…

Immigration / AB 540
By: Liz Angeles
Why did I choose this topic?
I chose this topic because most of my family members cause to the US as
mojados, which is another name for immigrants.
I also wanted to learn more about this topic and as well as AB 540.
This topic has influenced me most of the time because some of my cousins
who didn’t have any papers have succeded in life. They’ve became what
they’ve always wanted to be in life.
One of my cousins that wasn’t a US citizen , when she…
at one point in time America used to welcome immigrants and it wasn’t as complicated as it is today. There are many pros and cons to this topic. Immigrants got their health checked out when they reached the United States and now immigrants don’t have that privilege. As years went on the way immigrants were treated had changed.
Although there doesn't seem to be many pros for letting in more immigrants, we have to remember we all come from immigrants. What makes America so great is the diversity…
My position is that immigrants should be allowed to stay here legally. Immigrants increase the diversity and open the culture in America. Illegal immigrants would bring about significant economic gains in terms of growth, earnings, tax revenues, and jobs. According to (Jason Furman) 2012 immigrants are 30 percent more likely to start a business in the United States than non-immigrants and 18% of small business are owned by immigrants. Letting immigrants stay here legally would give them a better…
With of illegal immigration on the rise and violence on the border, both the Republicans and the Democrats are now beginning to take notice. Both political parties want to end the violence and stop the illegal entrance in to the United States, but they have different views on how to tackle the issue.
Republicans support immigrants coming to the United States legally and want them to help build America just as they have done in the past. But in a new…
By the year 2050, Nearly 1 in 5 people living in The United States will be Immigrants. ( As predicted by scientist in the article “U.S Population Projections” by Pew Social Trends Staff.) Many people are starting to complain that Illegal Immigration is hurting the United States Population and Economy, but in reality, its not. People say that all immigrants just come here to take money from the U.S and send it back to their home countries, and when they get paid, they don’t pay…
country any time they would
like. Illegal immigration is a hotly debated area right this moment until we figure out
how to fix this issue it may never go away. There are a shocking 11.2 million
unauthorized illegal immigrants in 2012 and that number is increasing as we speak
Mexicans make up
about half of all unauthorized immigrants (52%), though their
numbers have been declining in recent years. There were 5.9 million Mexican
unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. in 2012, down from 6.4 million…
