Illegal immigrants should be allowed into America An illegal immigrant is any person who enters the United States illegally or any person who enters legally and stays past the time legally allowed There are many arguments that support allowing illegal immigrants into America Illegal immigrants are essential to the American economy they contribute more to the government than they receive in benefits and current immigration policies are discriminatory Illegal immigrants have a positive effect on the American economy History has shown that prosperity follows immigration Economists point out that the economic boom of the 1950s and 60s was driven by immigration and the depression of the 1930s began after the restrictive Immigration Act of 1924 was implemented Example Lee 108 Illegal workers provide a flexible low cost labor pool for United States companies thus allowing local companies to compete with inexpensive imports from cheap labor companies Without illegal immigrants many United States factories would go offshore Expert Opinion Lee 39 Illegal immigrants usually work in low paying positions that most Americans refuse to do For decades whenever there was a shortage of farm workers the INS border patrol pretended that they didnt see the Mexican workers crossing the border Fact Stewart 10 Illegal immigrants contribute much more money to the government than they receive in benefits and therefore are not a social burden Illegal immigrants pay millions of dollars into Social Security that they will never collect They also pay state income sales and property taxes for which they receive few benefits Example Szumski 14 The Orange County Task Force found that illegal immigrants pay 83 million taxes each year and they receive medical services costing only 27 million per year Fact Szumski 14 Most immigrants are drawn by the hope of better jobs not by United States benefits programs When job prospects dim many return home Far from ripping off the system illegal aliens are more likely to be paying for it
