Immigration affects citizens who live in the United States as well as immigrants who come to the United States There are positive and negative affects of immigration One negative result is that many immigrants take away jobs from native workers Nevertheless many Americans benefit from that because Americans perform jobs that are very difficult and low-paying Immigration also affects refugees who come to the United States because they can not get the job they want However one positive outcome is that many immigrants gradually acquire good and payable jobs Native workers without a high school education have seen their wages fall because of competition by the lower-skilled new immigrants According to one of the researcher Moore Sullivan studies show that for each immigrant who entered the United States between 1960-1977 093 natives were unemployed In addition most immigrants and Americans who did not complete their high school education are likely to work in specific areas of the economy such as manufacturing and service industries Moreover migration in to California affected the earnings of less educated natives in 1970 For example many African and Hispanic Americans who dropped out of school made salary of only 45 to 76 a week because of immigration All these statistics show that immigration has more negative impact on minorities than on White Americans Thus because of their educational background immigrants had low incomes that further lead to poverty However many Americans benefit from immigrant labor It permits many goods and services to be produced for cheaper costs Also immigrants gave their working power to many businesses For instance immigration helped to build and maintain Americas textile and agricultural industries Overall US Economy Gains From immigration But its costly to some states and Localities May17 1997 In addition jobs like garment workers home attendants service workers and others are occupied by immigrants Therefore Americans benefit because they have more opportunities to get better jobs with good working environments and high salaries
