I think both sides should be allowed, Because for refugees, They are seeking shelter and sanctuary, But if illegal immigrants are not allowed, They will have nowhere to go, And it will be hard for all of the refugees to find a place to stay. Not only will it increase the number of unrecorded deaths, It will increase the number of homeless and poor.

First I think it is important to distinguish between refugees and illegal immigrants. I'll stick to the original question of should illegal immigration be allowed and ignore the refugee legal proceedings. Illegal immigration is when a person crosses a countries border without the knowledge of the government. This can be done for a multitude of reasons but the most popular are economic and fleeing something, Be it war or the law. For economic refugees they come to a country without proper documentation and are often required to work under the table because of it. This makes them exploitable to employers who can pay them less than minimum wage and ignore safety codes. The workers tend not to report it because if they do they will be deported back to their home country.

Illegal immigrants coming in and working for low costs undercuts the job market and causes layoffs because why should a employer pay more for a legal immigrant or resident to work when they can save a buck employing illegals. This causes layoffs that can lead to homelessness and other economic insecurity. By ignoring or allowing illegal immigration price for labor drops and legal residents and immigrants are unable to make a living.

for the people that cross into America illegally, They would have nowhere to go if we put up a law saying no illegal immigrants. They would have no home, And no place to go. If we allowed illegal immigration, We could insure those people homes, We could get them jobs, And even if they don't get as far as minimum wage, At least their rebuilding their lives here. They are reconnecting to society and living in our aura of rights and liberties. In time those people can learn to live like we do and they can gain their citizenship, But if we never let them, How can they find their sanctuary? That's the thing, They can't. We should allow illegal immigration and let people start their lives in a fresh, New community.
