Because my grandfather was a minister and marched with Martin Luther King, Junior, I was raised not only to be tolerant of difference, but also to embrace it.Every day immigrants enter the United States. This has a huge effect on American citizens, both negatively and positively. Though immigration definitely has a negative impact on our taxes, the positive aspects seem to outweigh the negative ones. Even our educational system is influenced by immigration. In some states, students are required to learn a second language due to the immigration. In Arizona, there was discussion of...
