Immigration: Is It Really that Bad

YES! The United States of America is known to the world as the country with the most cultural groups and has been home for many legal and illegal immigrants from second and third world countries. Second and third world countries are referred to as undeveloped or developing countries, such as most of Asia and countries in Latin America. Many immigrants refer to the U.S. as the land of freedom and opportunities. Year after year legal and illegal immigrants from these second and third world countries have been increasing in numbers in the United States. Many immigrants immigrate to the U.S. to escape poverty due to their poor economy in their country. They immigrate to the U.S. in search for economic security. They immigrate to the U.S. and steal as many American jobs as they can, and send their earnings back home to their family.

As more and more immigrants enter the U.S. they interfere with the economy and ecosystems that are vital to the health and survival of America and the Earth. This is why immigration needs to be taken seriously. The United States should reduce the illegal as well as legal immigration in the U.S. due to American job losses, environmental problems due to overpopulation, and the money that is spent on immigrants.

The United States should reduce the rate of illegal as well as legal immigrants immigrating into the U.S. because they harm the American workforce. One example would be, job displacement. This is when native workers lose their jobs to immigrants working for lower wages. By immigrants working for lower wages it gives them the advantage because businesses will hire the person who will work for the lowest cost.
