The reasons why all illegal immigrants should be deported because once they step onto U.S. soil they are already committing a crime. They are illegal, the definition of illegal is contrary to or forbidden by law, especially criminal law. Those illegal immigrants who come here without proper documentation, those who are non-illegal and overstayed their visa and those who live in the U.S. and commit crimes are all illegal, they are committing a crime and they all should be deported, there are no questions about it. Just like American citizens we have to follow the law, those wanting to live in America, should conform to our culture and want to be Americans. We feel as if these people should follow the law just as you would do in any other countries.


While I agree with all my opponent said regarding the deportation of migrants convicted of crimes (i.e.: non-immigration-related crimes such as drug dealing, pimping or gang violence), I question his other beliefs.

Indeed, migrants, legal or illegal are good for the economy. They take the "3D" jobs (Dirty, Dangerous, Dull) which no American citizen would want to take. Therefore, they help remedy the crippling labor shortages in certain sectors of the economy.

Moreover, illegal immigrants provide cheap labor. If we were to deport them, consumer prices would rise and counteract any possible individual benefits coming from a slight drop in unemployment.

In short, even though migrants may create many social problems, they are good for our economy and should not be deported unless they commit a serious crime.
