Presentations text content in Illegal Immigration
The purpose of this presentation is to deliver my point of view on illegal immigration.Lets start off with describing what an immigrant is…Slide3
What is an immigrant?Immigrants are people who come from one country to live permanently in another country.
What is an illegal immigrant?
Illegal Immigrants are people who come from one country for work or residence with no intention of being there permanently or as a citizen of that country.Slide4
Facts about legal immigration:
Each year the U.S. admits between 700,000 to 900,000 legal immigrants.
immigrants have the proper, legal documentation to live and work in the country.
applied for the appropriate visa
They were accepted for one of the reasons needed to enter: family (spouses, parents, minor children of U.S. citizens), employment (priority workers, unskilled, religious workers, or investors), humanitarian (refugees, those seeking asylum, or those who might have been removed), or visa lottery.Slide5
They prove they have money, a job offer, or plan to study
They receive a temporary visa or apply permanently, obtain a green card, and become citizens.
They often wait a long time to go through the legal process.
agree to follow the laws of the country, and they are here because the government approved them to be here.
follow the legal road to become citizens so they pay taxes, they can vote, and they have a social security number.Slide6
Facts about illegal immigration:
October 2008, the illegal immigrant population stood at 11.9 million according to the Pew Hispanic Center."
"There are approximately 7.7 million illegal aliens employed in U.S. jobs in 2008."
"A strategy of attrition through enforcement, which includes mandatory workplace verification and measures to curb misuse of Social Security numbers, could reduce the illegal population by as many as 1.5 million illegal immigrants each year."
(Center for Immigration Studies
"25-50% of all gangsters arrested in the criminal gang suppression efforts in northern and western Virginia are estimated to be illegal immigrants."
(Study for Immigration Studies).Slide7
Each year more than 1.3 million legal and illegal aliens settle permanently in the U.S.
every 100 illegal aliens who find jobs in the U.S., 65 American workers are displaced.
year, more than 72,000 aliens are arrested for drug offenses in the U.S.
aliens constitute over 25% of the federal prison population. Think about that for a moment. This means that a group which comprises less than 5% of the population is committing 25% percent of the crime
Illegal vs. Legal Immigration
has so many different views and opinions on this subject. We all go through different experiences in our lives which cause us to have our own thoughts and views towards certain situations. Immigration to the states can be both a good and bad thing. If someone wants to come here to further their education, better their lives, and maybe even become a citizen what is the real harm in this? But if someone comes here illegally and abuses the government system then they are seen more as a threat to our country
The following slides are graphs showing how illegal immigration has affected the U.S. negatively…Slide10Slide11Slide12
As you can see from the facts about legal and illegal immigration, illegal immigration hurts our country in every way. I feel that the best way to solve the issue of illegal immigration is explained perfectly in this article: http://www.ronpaul.com/on-the-issues/border-security/Slide13
The following links take you to youtube.com videos that prove illegal immigration is hurting our country and needs to be stopped:
Something needs to happen to stop illegal immigration and U.S. citizens losing their jobs!Slide14
Just like many other law abiding citizens in the U.S., my uncle and his family have been affected by illegal immigrants. My uncle is a hard working, honest man but has had his life changed completely around. He worked as a handyman or home builder for years but lost his job as the economy went downhill. This is because his company wanted to save money and hire illegal aliens that would work for cheaper pay. Now he and his family struggle with money and never know when his next paycheck will come.
I do not think it is fair that as a citizen of the U.S. and someone that does what he can legally for the country would be treated like this. Citizens should be looked after and treated properly because they pay taxes and have the intention of making the U.S. a better place. Put yourself in my uncles situation and think what would you do? How would you feel about being treated this way?Slide15
