Immigration fuels our economy. As an article from Newsweek points out, many Americans wrongly believe that immigration hurts the economy. There is consensus among many leading economists that immigration actually gives economies a net boost. In fact, a report from the Migration Policy Institute indicates that "immigration unambiguously improves employment, productivity, and income," especially when an economy is growing. And, contrary to popular belief, immigrants do not reduce native employment rates overal

While you make some fair points on pro immigration, I believe they also cause an extreme amount of problems in any country. And the U.S ESPECIALLY needs way less immigration because it hurts the middle class worker. Common sense, economic theory, and a fair reading of the research on this question show that allowing in so many immigrants (legal and illegal) with relatively little education reduces the wages and job prospects for Americans with little education. (witch is about 41% btw) Not to mention all the crimes committed by immigrants, with 193 homicide convictions last year alone.
