Illegal immigration is endangering and destroying American safety, finances, education, and culture.


The invasion of the United States by illegal aliens, primarily over our southern borders, imperils the country's financial, educational, and medical institutions, our environmental quality, and in fact, the very culture of the United States. For years, the willful misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which was originally written so that children of slaves freed after the Civil War would be considered citizens but now taken to mean that anyone who runs into the US...

America needs to crack down on illegal immigration.


Here are the negatives of illegal immigration. I would like my opponent to say the positives. -Costs taxpayers millions in healthcare each year. When an injured illegal immigrant comes in and receives medical care, it is on the taxpayer dollars. -Costs California an increased tax to have translators for hospitals because of the large amount of spanish-only speaking people who called. -Takes jobs away from hardworking americans. I'll name more in my next arguement....

illegal immigration and outsourcing: practically similar


it's ironic some of the conservatives who push keeping foreigners out, yet want outsourcing to go next to unhindered. now, foreginers are often not able to talk english and wouldn't be able to contribute but would be on the welfare etc. but, that's a very minor phenomenon as most have jobs etc. plus, if your reasons are for protecting about that stuff, what about those who are intelligent and smart, why can't they just come as they wish and not jump through years of hoops? the real reason...

The U.S. should build a fence on its southern border in order to reduce illegal immigration.


I think a border fence would be excellent in keeping illegals out of the U.S. There are already several cities in the U.S. where fences are put up (San Diego, Nogales, El Paso.) All have reduced illegal immigration. The problem is we don't have enough Border Patrol and a fence on the southern border would help immensely. Here are my reasons: 1. The fence will be hard to penetrate. This is a main controversy of the...anti-border fence people. What good is 6-foot high chicken wire? Well first,...

Illegal immigration is bad


Illegal immigrants are detrimental to our society because they hurt our economy and take jobs. They cost the federal government a lot of money each year. They also take jobs away from American workers. Because of their sheer numbers illegal immigrants put a great strain on the American economy. It costs the government billions of dollars a year to house these illegal immigrants, and because they don't pay taxes we never get a single cent of that money returned to our government. They also cos...

Illegal Immigration


I hear people saying illegal immigration helps our economy. I however, have to disagree with that. These are some facts about illegal aliens: - The cost of illegals in K-12 grades is over 13 billion and growing every second. - There are over 21 million illegal aliens in this country. - There are over 4 million children of illegals in public schools. - There are 667,781 illegal immigrant fugitives. - There are 355,077 illegal immigrants incarcerated. The cost of these incarcerat...

The solution to illegal immigration requires enforcement of our current laws


Some argue that the status quo is de facto amnesty because it is extremely impractical to round up at least 12 million illegal immigrants and deport them. Those who say that are right as far as their reason, but off in saying that the status quo is de facto amnesty. Here's what we could do to solve the problem, and it would require nothing more than modest enforcement of our current laws: 1. Finish the fence across the whole border 2. Beef up manpower security at the border 3. Deport those...

Illegal Immigration


Whether it's through the underground tunnels from Mexico to Arizona or the ocean trek from Cuba to Florida, illegal immigration happens and should be stopped. There is a reason why we have a thorough process to issue an immigrant his/her U.S. citizenship. Everyone can relate and understand analogies, or so I hope, so that's where I'll start. We all have stood in line at a grocery store, gas station, etc. and we know what it feels like to wait for our turn to pay-out. Sometimes the line...

Stopping Illegal Immigration


In America right now there are aproximately 12 million illegal immigrants. Now my posistion on this topic is that there should be some sort of military force guarding our borders rather than a bunch of volunteers called the Border Patrol. If we had some National Guard troops or active Army troops on the border Illegal Immigration will almost drop to zero. Our Boder Patrol is tired, civilians, and they just can't get the job done with the limited resources they have. T.J. Bonner of the Nation...
