"All men are created equal." This is what American was based on when it was first created. Even though this has not truly occurred in America. "We … endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." These quotations were from our Declaration of Independence. However we have not always given people these rights. These illegal immigrants are not citizens only because our nation fears for it's safety. These illegal immigrates are not terrorist, they are normal people. They have every right to have life, liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness because America was meant to be a nation for all people, despite their color or their ethnicity.
And according to the USA Today Times, most illegal immigrates pay their tax bills even though they are do not have any papers. Everyone in this country have ancestors who were immigrants. American is suppose to be accepting of all people. It is because of our tolerance to all cultures that we are strong. Each person has their own thoughts and ideas to improve a country and if we have a larger diverse group we will be a strong country.

Hello Bruno, this is not an argument, it is merely a debate... Good luck

500 years ago i would agree with you, but now that the American population has increased and so many Americans are out of work I believe that we need to worry about ourselves at this period in time.
Later when American unemployment rates decrease dramatically, is will be the right time to become more lenient on immigration policies/laws. Thank you for reading this and good look with the rest of our debate

since my oppenent forfieted the last round i have no rebuttals to debate about, so i guess i will just state more reasons immigration laws should not be loosened

1. americans have a 9 percent unemployment rate,while illegal immigration is not allowed, if we loosen or ban anti immigration laws, more americans will be unemployed than before.
2. i have heard the argument that " illegal immigrants only takes the jobs that americans refuse to take", which is completely innacurate... i know a man who works at a fast food resturaunt and 3 out of the 10 employees are illegal immigrants. and while it may not be the best job, americans a certainly willing to take it.
