FC: Illegal Immigration
1: Illegal immigration is the migration into a country/state in violation of the immigration laws and sovereignty of that country/state. An illegal immigrant in the United States is a (non citizen) who has entered the united states with out government permission and in violation of United States nationality law or stayed beyond the termination date of a visa,also in violation of the law. Illegal immigration raises many political,economic and social issues and has become a source of major controversy in developed countries and the more successful developing countries.

4: The majority of immigrants who come to the United States are looking for better future for their family and themselves.They come so that at the very least their children can have a chance to live the "American Dream" people struggle to find jobs and often when they have jobs,they find it impossible to provide for their families in countries around the world. In America ,however one can start over and become economically stable.The dreams and aspirations of immigrants are shared,whether they are legal immigrants or illegal immigrants. Dealing with our illegal alien problem has been a large problem for our country.Out of 307 million people in America,11.1 million are illegally in the country.

6: Most of these people come into America seeking economic opportunities or free health care .Some sneak into our country specifically to commit crimes ,because our boarder patrols have gaps.Human smuggling into the USA has become a business. Health care,Education and Incarceration are the three main social services that are used by illegal immigrants in the United States. As Citizens of America we need to be informed of the statistics and issues surrounding illegal immigrants.

8: Illegal immigration solutions: The only ways to fix this illegal immigration problem is either to make them leave, stop them from coming or to make them contribute the same as everyone else does. The solution has nothing to do with a fence or kicking them out , what we have to do is find a way that forces them to contribute.Make them pay for those things they are using now like health care,education and they become productive member of our society. There are several simple things that can be done : Start enforcing the laws we already have and punish companies that pay illegal immigrant under the table.This means that to find work, the person must be documented. Another Solution that would make things easy is the sales tax. For example: In Tennessee, we have no state income tax, this means that any illegal immigrant here pays the same taxes as we do. If we did this everywhere, illegal immigrants would no longer be a problem. They would contribute just as much the system as they take out.
10: In my view simpler solution is to let them come if they want ,but make them contribute the same as other legal immigrants do. If we do that, all of a sudden it is less attractive to be an illegal immigrant.If we stop allowing them to leech,we will only attract the people who really want to be here .Those are the people we want here and those are the people who will make positive contributions to our society.
