Is the enforcement of existing immigration laws alone a good solution to illegal immigration in America?

  • No to another Israel - Palestine border status quo.

    I, in my most sincere admiration of this great nation that we are, would like to state my point of view of this issue that is by far one of the most controversial. Myriad immigrants legal or not who had come to this country to find freedom, opportunity, and a more dignify way of life come here to find the opposite. I support an immigration reform of all immigrants who pass several requirements, like for example, checking their criminal records, a thorough background check, complying with paying their taxes, paying a fair find, knowing our history as a free nation, are good residents and have been living here for 5 years or longer. Our founding father founded this country by their believes they managed to formed The United States out of 13 colonies who were united in one for one purpose to become independent of England. Our own declaration of independence states, " We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." I am aware that the border is not totally concealed but we are talking about one of the longest borders in the world it is not an easy task and it will never be simply because it is too long.

  • No- we need more border guidelines and restrictions.

    Stricter Immigration control, particularly border security, would definitely reduce illegal immigration. Major issue in regarding illegal immigration is how many illegal weapons, and drugs, are brought in by drug cartels through loopholes in the border with Mexico. There are currently 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, the majority of whom are from hispanic nations to the south. It is also important to note that simply allowing illegal immigrants to enter undermines those who are trying to become citizens legally. The only way to combat illegal immigration is to show strength on the border, and prevent those who chose to break our laws from entering the US.
    Although it might cost more money, it will ensure that our country will be more protected with more law enforcement and border patrol. Therefore, more will be fearful of attempting the trip to crossing the border. No matter the situation there will always be illegal immigrants, but a more stringent control would definitely limit a majority of them.

  • It is not.

    The enforcement of existing immigration laws alone is not a good solution to combat illegal immigration in the United States of America. What the United States need to do it create more strict illegal immigration laws, but enforcing the current laws will is a good start, but it is not the solution.

  • No, existing laws are harmful to individuals in the country.

    Existing immigration laws are not a good solution to illegal immigration in America, as they disrespect and dehumanize people. Even the term "illegals" is disrespectful, and the current reform also separates families and leaves them divided across the border, which is as inhumane as it gets. There are better ways to change immigration laws.
