 Why Should Immigrants be allowed in the United States?

I say yes because of the economic growth. The influx of people could mean an influx of new skills for the job market. The more people from different places that enter the United States will bring unique skills not known in America. (Venture Articles 2013).These types of innovations will bring the country many billions of dollars for businesses which were created and will help employ many Americans. This will make some Americans very wealthy and also this type of wealth pumps billions of dollars into the United States economy. In addition, the companies pump billions of dollars back into the economy. Not only does it bring wealth to the United States but it also brings culture and diversity. We would not have all these good food choices here if someone didn’t originally bring them here. If a new food choice opens up in the United States that you couldn’t find anywhere else previously, new restaurants can open up to cater to that food and new products can be created around that food. They help spread our values from one place to another when immigrants come here. They bring in more tax revenue, low labor cost and more money. They take jobs that some Americans won’t take, because of the low pay. It doesn’t take them long to learn our language. Most immigrants, who have been here in America for at least five or ten years, are very fluent in the English language. They can learn our culture and help pass it on to their relatives and friends, and in turn they will start to like our country and embrace American values. But not all Americans agree with having immigrants enter the United States. Some Americans think immigration is the cause of the 911 attack. North says; don’t blame immigration for the 911 attack. This horrific act was done by people with legal visas in the United States. We need to be more effective with our measures of intelligence (North 2013). Who supports immigration? Seventy four percent of Hispanics say immigrants strengthen the country. Fifty two percent of blacks agree with Hispanics compared to 41% of Whites. Democrats agree 58% and Republicans disagree because of health care, jobs and welfare. Republicans think of immigrants as people who are taking our jobs and robbing our economy. Immigrant workers make up 12.4% of United States labor force compared to 11.5% of the United States population. This survey was done in December of 2013. Some Americans think, when immigrants earn their legal status, they take their investment and place it in their home country and also support family members in their home land. Some Americans think it’s not right for them to invest in their home land. They believe they should place their investment back into the United States. The United States Census Bureau has predicted that migration to the United States will increase between the years of 2027 -2038, because of the attractiveness of living in the United States. The United States is filled with opportunities that can make anyone successful if they believe in themselves and is willing to take the next step to become wealthy. The United States offers immigrants freedom of speech and religion. United States offer them housing, jobs and health care. The United States offers them loans to start up different businesses and grants for education. These are the luxuries that attract immigrant into the United States. But, the immigration demographic has shifted. Most immigrants use to enter through California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and Texas, but it has decreased in these areas. Nevada, North Carolina and Washington have an increase. These are both legal and illegal immigrants. Also, the portion of native born Americans in some parts of the country has fallen. Pey says, “The Native born population decreased in the counties running down the nation’s midsection, and along the Mississippi River in southern Arkansas...
