No Easy Solution For centuries immigration in the United States has been a problem as well as a threat to America’s security and economic state. Some accuse immigration to be the leading cause for a majority of problems like the obscure phases in the economy and the decreases of job openings. Others believe that it gives no harm, but the total opposite. Immigration is complicated, but not impossible to control. It will take time and several steps to keep immigration under control, starting with minor adjustments and leading to the major solution. America is one of the few countries that care about others countries. For this same reason we allow immigration to the land of the “American Dream.” We cannot stop immigration all of the sudden for this will harm the reputation of the country and affect its relations with other countries. “Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me (Source E),” indicates that America will welcome anyone at their worst times. “…But please use the front door” as Source A states, signifies that immigration should be allowed only if it’s done legally. But even then, we should carefully choose the participants that will income the country legally. People immigrating to the United States legally should undergo a precise background check to assure the security of the American people. Securing borders is all we hear as a solution. “Increasing worksite enforcement, deploying fences and advanced technologies to stop illegal crossing” explains George W. Bush in Source B exposing attention only on stopping immigration. 49% of people voted in favor of building a fence 670 miles of the border between the United States and Mexico in comparison to 48% that opposed according to Source F. This shows that America’s attention is on the incoming immigrants and not on the ones that are already here. In most states illegal immigrants are not allowed to obtain a driver’s license. This questions the security of our roads. Driver’s licenses and some kind of ID would be helpful
