The actual problem behind illegal immigration is that there are too many incoming undocumented aliens from other countries which weakens the security of the United States. The existence of so many aliens in the United States is a symbol of how weak and insecure our borders are. This doesn't only harms our security but it also distorts our law. More than 10 million undocumented aliens currently reside in the U.S, and that population is growing by 700,000 per year (4 Kane). This has to be taken into account that it's not only a certain amount of illegal incoming aliens but 700,000 a year, which is an estimate. There is a good chance that this population increase might be even higher that what has been calculated.
Guest worker programs are favorable because they help value the United States economy but they are unfavorable too because they also harm the economy value. In this case, the national security environment is being weakened. Guest worker programs are meant to help undocumented immigrants because the United States is a land of opportunity and it wants its people to have equal opportunity. The threat behind guest worker programs are that they are more likely to become a culture for future incoming aliens. Someone might not be afraid of entering U.S illegally because they have guest worker programs as an excuse or back-up. This is the reason why guest worker programs should be organized uniquely and intelligently since there will be more workers coming than required or demanded for.
The population today includes a far higher percentage of foreign-born Americans than in recent decades, yet the economy is strong, with higher total gross domestic product, higher GDP per person, higher productivity per worker, and more Americans working than ever before (9 Johnson). This might not have been an outcome of immigration but it is idiotic to blame the immigrants for harming the economy while the economy is not even harmed. Whether an immigrant is very low skilled or high skilled, they help push the national output and net economic benefit to an increase. Immigrant families add $88,000 in tax revenues which has a positive impact on the United States.
The real problem with undocumented immigrant workers is that flouting the law has become the norm, which makes the job of terrorists and drug traffickers infinitely easier (16 Kane). The main problem that lies between the U.S and the immigrants is that the cost behind terrorism, can be massive and real, and it's far more than the impact that immigrants are making on the United States economy. Tim Kane, Ph.D. and Kirk A. Johnson, Ph.D. from the Heritage Foundation have introduced fourteen economic principles for the incoming guest workers. The first and the main principle is that each guest worker must be identified using a nationwide technological system of biometric identification. This is definitely a basic principle that must be enforced because finger prints, retina scans, Irises and DNA tests are...
