Exploitation of Illegal Immigrant Workers – PO#5
Illegal immigration has become a tremendously difficult situation for many facet of the country. The issue has become a major problem for OSHA as the agency is beginning to feel pressure for essentially abandoning the problems faced by this segment. The researcher feels that the circumstances faced by many undocumented workers in the U.S. is defiantly an area that needs immediate attention. By continuing to allow these folks to be subjected to the sometime brutal treatment that everyone knows is taking place, OSHA is shirking their moral and ethical responsibility. Let us take a moment to consider just how bad the problem has become, and more importantly what can be done to correct it.
The U.S. – Mexico Boarder
According to Germano (2011), 6% of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants that are currently living in the U.S. are Mexican nationals. An additional 20% hail from countries in Central America. Due to the overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. through the Southern border, the remaining discussion will pivot on this point. While there is no definitive way to know for sure how many illegal immigrants are crossing into the United States from Mexico each year, arrest records show that several hundred thousand are apprehended along the nearly 2,000 mile stretch annually (Dinan, 2013). Despite evidence that the illegal crossings are actually on the decline, the many problems that stem from undocumented workers is sure to continue well into the foreseeable future. To fully appreciate the depth of this situation it is necessary to understand how the shared border between the U.S. and Mexico has transpired over the years and what conditions drove those changes.
History tells us that the U.S.-Mexico border as we know it today was a result of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. This document which ended the Mexican- American War (1846-1848) was signed on February 2nd 1848 (National Archives, n. d.). Over 525,000 square miles of land were acquired by the United States as a result of the document which accounted for nearly half of Mexico’s previous land mass. As one might expect, their defeat in the war and subsequent land cession brought about immense troubles for Mexico. Conversely the U.S. victory set that nation up for exponential growth and prosperity. The poor conditions of Mexico continued to dwindle reaching a culmination in 1910 that resulted in the Mexican revolution. Conditions in Mexico coupled with major events in U.S. history each played significant roles in contributing to the illegal immigrant epidemic that continues to evolve even as this project is being undertaken.
Dangers of Crossing the Border Illegally
There are a host of serious issues that are closely associated with illegal immigration. From the onset of their journey into the U.S. many seek ways to exploit these often less fortunate men, women, and even children. Deaths that take place as a result of...
