Many people believe that ILLEGAL immigrants shouldn't be deported from the US, however, I believe there are many valid reasons to deport them. Illegal immigration has been a hot issue in the US since the time of the Bush Administration and has caused many out-roars from the LEGAL immigrants and US citizens. I strongly believe that the US needs to do something about the 11 million ILLEGAL immigrants who are taking away jobs from the US economy in the every narrowing job market. Many people believe that ILLEGAL immigrants shouldn't be deported from the US, however, I believe there are many valid reasons to deport them. I believe that we should deport ILLEGAL immigrants because they cause trouble, they take jobs and they are an economic burden on the US citizens.

Let's just face it, it's inhumane to deport a human being for wanting a better life either by escaping dangerous situations or needing a job that can pay the bills when their previous country couldn't provide it. No matter if they came into the country legally or illegally. In the U.S there was over 11.3 million undocumented citizens were found, a 3.4% of the total population, and these human beings have lived in the U.S for more than ten years (66% of illegal immigrants) making it their home... Their lives... Deporting undocumented immigrants not only affects their live but ours as well. To deport and keep out these immigrants would cost the country at least 1.6 trillion Euros or 1.8 trillion Dollars, causing taxes to increase more and more. Not only will this affect everyone, but foster care will have a large increase as well. Over five thousand children in the foster care system have undocumented parents that were deported or detained, being that every 1 in 4 deportation cases result in U.S citizen child losing a parent or parents.

First of all, according http://www.theblaze.com...; Illegal immigrants in the us make schools worse with teachers saying "They weren"t there to cuss in Spanish, distract other students and generally be disruptive," the teacher wrote, KRQE reported. "So all in all, I"d say the day was a success." This shows that Illegal immigrants weren't only disruptive to the education system in the US, but prevented US citizens and LEGAL migrants study and to be focused on their work. This clearly shows that not only do ILLEGAL migrants cause a problem.
Now even though that many of ILLEGAL immigrants want a better life in the US they should learn more English and be accustomed to the US culture instead of their own in order to truly fit in a become "American". However, deporting children may be considered unethical if they end up causing trouble in the end I believe that the 11 million have reason to be deported.

Having illegal immigrants in the U.S not only improves the economy-by more tax dollars-but as well as the majority of low-skilled jobs are undocumented immigrants, and these jobs are needed by the country but a low percentage doesn't want. Low-skilled jobs include: farming, janitor, plumber, etc. Eighty-three million American citizens rather have high-skilled and medium-skilled jobs than anything else, it is just a part of the culture now to be an astronaut, doctor, lawyer when you grow up. And studies show that employed illegal immigrants not only improves wages for American citizens and documented immigrants, but they are add to the diverse culture by bringing in new ideas, topics, and solutions. The United States of America originated from countries and their citizens collaborating together, or working together for independence from the British. So if we deport all immigrants it would include everyone except Native Americans, since the majority of the country's population has ancestors who are immigrants.

Second, Illegal immigrants in the US take jobs from the citizens and legal immigrants in that country. It has been documented accoriding to http://immigration.procon.org...; that many illegal immigrants in the US have taken many jobs from US citizens, for example according to the following sources nearly 10% of the US jobs have been taking by the illegal immigrants in the US. This has caused many citizens to lose jobs to cheaper labor forces of the illegal migrants not only in low paying but also some high skilled jobs. Now even if they are jobs no US citizen wants like gardening or cleaning, they still should be available first to the US citizen or legal migrant before they are given to Illegal Immigrants. Illegal immigrants also usually work under the table witch means that the employer doesn't need to provide insurance or retirment plan for the workers which might not be illegal however according to http://employment-law.freeadvice.com...; employers should provide these in order to have legal workers and not illegal ones.

Not only does deporting go against the morals of humanity, but the majority of illegal immigrants may not be documented by they do pay taxes; by buying groceries, paying rent or buying a home, etc. Doing this adds towards the security of the United States, in fact seventy-two percent of all undocumented migrants pay taxes- which the majority of goes towards the army- as other migrants just pay taxes while paying for stuff, giving 4.9 billion USD each year towards the government who eventually kicks them out and doesn't refund. So saying that illegals don't do anything good for our country is not only false but is an insult to immigrants and the fundamentals of how the government is able to function.

Finally, Yes it might not be moral to deport the ILLEGAL immigrants in the country, however, even if they buy groceries you forget that food is tax-free in the majority of places that they live. This includes - according to https://blog.taxjar.com... - California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Florida which have a very high majority of illegal Mexican immigrants. Never mind the fact that according to http://immigration.procon.org...; Illegal immigrants cost $11.64 billion dollars worth of tax money, with California supplying almost $4 billion dollars alone. This is not good as not only do these immigrants enter illegally, but they cause an economic burden to the US. As well as this the money that they contribute to the US economy comes from their employers and not them directly as most of the time the ILLEGAL Immigrants work under the table and don't pay taxes. The 5 billion dollars worth of taxes that they have collected they have collected form the states not the Illegal Immigrants directly - even if they do have to pay rent taxes which contribute to the economy in a sort - many do get welfare from the US due to having someone in their family being a US citizen which is abuse of the welfare system. may I add this makes refunding it completely and utterly illogical. Overall, I believe that the US should deport 11 million ILLEGAL immigrants currently in the US. Not only would this make the education levels higher and better for the US citizens as previously stated, but they would also have more jobs in the very competitive US market as even though they might be low paying jobs they still would contribute to the US citizen or LEGAL migrants, without having to pay extra taxes from their earnings as the employer does this and not the ILLEGAL Immigrant directly.
