Controlling Immigration to the U.S.
With the many different groups of people coming to this
country in search of a better life, we should cut back on who we
should allow to have citizenship. There are thousands of immigrants
coming to the U.S. every day. A lot of these immigrants are illegal
aliens coming to the U.S. to find jobs. Whenever we catch illegals
crossing our borders, we should send them right back and that would be
the end of the story. Instead we are bringing them to camps to wait
until the government finds out what to do with them. With so many
immigrants coming over everyday, the U.S. lets people out of these
camps and let them into our society so we can fit the new people who
are coming over here in the camps.
It is estimated that 4 million illegal aliens are living in
the U.S. right now. That means that the government has no idea who
these people are or where they are. "Nobody knows who these people
are," said a Brownsville, Texas trailer-court owner Bob White. "They
could be terrorist, or bandits, or typhoid carriers" (Lamar 14). This
is why the U.S. government needs to spend more money and stop
immigrants at the border. If the United States didn\'t let any of these
people in this country, we would still have people without jobs. So
its not like we need these people in our country. In Mexico 60 percent
of its labor force is unemployed. So a lot of these people think that
there are jobs for them in the U.S., but there aren\'t.
In the first 4 months of 1988 400,000 illegal aliens were
caught trying to cross the border. That may sound like a lot, but
300,000 slipped through without being caught. That means that over 40
percent of the people that try to get into this country illegally,
succeeded. If we get more agents on guard by our borders we could cut
that number to a tolerable level.
Some immigrants that come to this country legally that have a
good education and can work well are not a problem. The problem is
that there aren\'t very many of these kind of people that are trying to
get into this country. Many immigrants are poor and just want jobs to
keep themselves alive or to support there family.
It is hard for illegal immigrants who can\'t prove that they
are legal workers to find jobs. Some employers know from the start
that the person they hired is illegal and just hire them because they
will work for minimum wage or even less. To try to get voluntary
compliance to not hire illegals, the INS contacted 800,000 employers
and gave warnings to only 2,200 of these employers. Then out of the
800,000 employers who got contacted, the INS only fined 100
businesses. Only one question comes to mind when you think about these
numbers, why didn\'t the other thousands of people get fined. Since it
is hard for poor legal immigrants to get jobs, they sometimes have to
take hard, long, gardening type of jobs. A lot of immigrants will do
just about anything so they can eat and there family won\'t starve.
Sometimes illegal aliens get fake I.D.s and the employer never
knows they aren\'t allowed to work. The Center for U.S.-Mexican studies
at the University of California in San Diego says that a quarter of
illegal workers have purchased fake I.D.s.
The main problem that lets all of these immigrants come to
this country everyday is that we aren\'t doing much to stop them. But
there is also another reason that these people come to this country.
Other countries are letting tens of thousands of people out of there
country and most of these people are coming over to the U.S. Moscow\'s
emigration policy lets out 50,000 people a year. Over the last seven
years 100,000 Irish natives have come over here on tourist visas and
stayed after the time was up. Even though this is a problem that these
countries let out so many people a year, the U.S. should still just
say no when they arrive. As Mayor Bill Card says, " We have not been
able to get the cooperation and

PyramidsPyramids The Egyptians believed that their kings were gods. Even after they had died, the rulers continued to affect daily life through their supernatural powers.

Analysis of the Immigration ProblemAnalysis of the Immigration Problem The world has gone through a revolution and it has changed a lot. We have cut the death rates around the world with modern medicine and new farming methods. For example, we sprayed to destroy mosquitoes in Sri Lanka in the 1950s. In one year, the average life of everyone in Sri Lanka was extended by eight years because the number of people dying from malaria suddenly declined. This was a great human achievement. But we cut the death rate without cutting the bi

The Ice AgeThe Ice Age Twenty thousand years ago during the time of the last ice age period, many colossal mammals roamed North America. They survived during the times when much of the earth was covered by immense large bodies of ice that buried forests, fields, and mountains, but rapidly became extinct after the ice began to retreat and melt. Since then the human race has introduced many different theories to explain the extinction of these large mammals. One theory stands above all and explains the truth
