The U.S. needs to clamp down on illegal immigration

PervRat
Flare_Corran

The subject of this post is: The U.S. needs to clamp down on illegal immigration. I, the instigator, am taking the con side of this discussion. That is, I will be arguing against the notion that "The U.S. needs to clamp down on illegal immigration." This debate is open to any challenger to accept the "Pro" side of the debate, upon whose shoulders rests the burden of proof to establish that the U.S. needs to clamp down on illegal...

Immigration Should Be Illegal in the United States

I-am-a-panda

Immigration can cause international problems. In this process, countries get upset with the decreasing of their population. Also, the United States can not support the people, especially with the economy so bad they just can not seem to get a job. Then, they are homeless and starve. They cause more robberies and people to get mugged for survival. Immigration can again cause international problems, which can lead to terrorists attacks, such as September 9, 2001. This is a problem leading to the e...

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 wrong. If it was ok it would not be illegal. These people are robbing our country blind, and I refuse to pay a chunk of the 9 billion dollars to support these people....

The solution to illegal immigration requires enforcement of our current laws

The_Silent_Consensus

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

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...

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

Capt.Herp

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...

illegal immigration and outsourcing: practically similar

dairygirl4u2c
NeenahLibertarian

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...

Illegal Immigration

policydebategod

I'm ready for another debate against someone that views illegal immigration as a "positive" thing for America. Let me state this clearly, I am pro-immigration but anti-illegal immigration. I'm a born and raised Texan and I can debate this topic all day long. I've been around illegals all my life and I know the economic impact that comes with illegal immigrants....
