Illegal Immigration is currently a large problem in the United States. Illegal immigrants (mostly from Mexico) are coming over the border and residing in the U.S. They either come alone or bring their family. While the kids go to public schools (which we pay for), their parents steal our jobs by working for lower wages. The illegal immigrants reap all the benefits of living in the United States without paying taxes or contributing anything.
A lot of people think that illegal immigrants with jobs help contribute to our economy. However, this is not true. After receiving their paycheck, most illegal immigrants usually send the money back to their families in Mexico (if they’re families are not already here). This takes away money from the U.S. and rewards Mexico.
Therefore, we should not let illegal immigrants into our country. Of course it is necessary to allow some immigration, but there has to be a limit. Just like how you wouldn’t open your doors to let whoever wants to come inside your home, the U.S. can’t open its borders to illegal immigrants.
