Immigration refers to movement of people from one nation-state to another, where they are not citizens. This is caused by poor conditions in countries. People do nott like where they live, so they immigrate to another land. I believe immigration is a good thing. It gives people a place to go when they need one. Illegal immigration is a problem that is getting worse. The Mexican government does not provide health care and other benefits like our government. The citizens of Mexico realize this, and they decide to try to enter America which is conveniently attached to Mexico.

Immigration, legal or otherwise, is a huge issue right now.
Debates rage about how many immigrants should be allowed into the

important question is, however, does illegal immigration deserve
the massive amount of attention it receives? No, it does not.

From 1900 - 1910 almost one million immigrants entered the U.S. per year. Organizations were formed urging laws to restrict immigration.

For example Europe, which accounted for two-thirds of...VIEW DOCUMENT
