The Restriction of Immigration in the United States
Immigration should be restricted in the United States. There
are many political, social, and economic reasons why
restrictions should be put on immigration. The United
States Government and the welfare of its citizens are
chaotic enough, without having to deal with the influx of
thousands of new immigrants each year. Along with the
myriad immigrants to the U.S., come just as many
economic problems. Some of these problems include
unemployment, crime, and education. There are numerous
amounts of U.S. citizens who are currently receiving
welfare benefits from the government, many of whom are
immigrants. The unemployment rate has been on a steady
decline, which has started to level off in the past few years.
With the addition of all these immigrants, the amount of
people unemployed and on welfare is sure to increase
geometrically, as the number of open work positions
increases merely arithmetically; therefore contributing to our
nations national debt, tax, and unemployment rates. The
rates at which immigrants are willing to work at further
burden the citizen's hope of finding a "good paying job".
Business and industry owners do not care who they have
working for them, as long as they hustle. So why, one may
wonder would anyone hire an American worker at a higher
rate, when an immigrant will do the same work for less
pay? This increased competition for jobs is certainly related
to the saturation of unemployed immigrants in the U.S. In
addition to the economic problems that arise with
immigration, there are also many social issues as well.
Some of these issues include education, communication,
and assimilation. The public school systems of the U.S.
today are inadequate enough, without the hassle of trying to
cope with immigrants. Assuming that the immigrant children
are bilingual(most of which are not), they will still have
much trouble adjusting to the curriculum, and most likely
will need to be taught in separate classes; this requires
more teachers, space, and...
