My parents’ families came to America legally; my mother’s side coming in the beginning and colonizing the Western frontier, my father’s side coming through Ellis Island during Russia’s purge of the Jews. They are American citizens, and are recognized as such. The newest issue is with the Mexicans coming across the borders, bringing drugs, crime, and breeding-age people. They are illegal, come here due to the benefits they recieve, and do not contribute to the economy. These illegals are, in fact, being supported by the government due to their large numbers. We could just as easily have illegal Indian people; yet they are educated, and value hard work and the rewards that it reaps. They would contribute to our economy. So why be so benevolent upon the Mexican population and the lack of benefits they bring?
Currently Arizona is having a problem with illegal immigrants, drug traffiking and crime. To solve this, they have created a law that has illegals that are involved with the police ‘investigated’ to see if they are legal. In a recent internet poll, 95.9% of all people to be involved with it AGREE with Arizona’s law. The government doesn’t agree, and is SUING the state for enforcing a law already in place on a federal level. They have also begun prosecuting Arizona and slandering it’s name, placing warnings about how DANGEROUS and VIOLENT it is. Maybe if the federal government stayed away from the state, it wouldn’t be as dangerous……
Immigrants have contributed to our society in the past, as we have become a melting pot of different cultures. They continue to do so, and can also help as globalization spreads even more. Yet we need to maintain our security and border control to protect our economy from those not willing to help us.
