Immigration is a Population movement of an /individual or group from the original home to a new homeland as a result of his choice for several reasons. There are two types of immigration, legal and illegal, which made the Human immigration excited through out the history for example the Palestinian people who immigrated from Palestine to Jordan and some other parts in the Middle East, and the a lot of Africans that immigrated to the united states seeking for better lives, maybe that's due to the wars the nation had or maybe slavery that been placed upon them from another nations, any how there are many reasons why may people leave their countries for good, however there is the seasonal migration which is treated as a form of immigration but it's not considered as a major immigration issue.
It can be considered as a new world phenomenon that all the nations are facing it, which has a lot of damage and negative effects for countries in this globe, a lot of people are immigrating from their countries searching for better lifestyle or education or perhaps work, using legal methods or maybe illegal which makes us see how desperate these people are for leaving their countries, even though sometimes they rummage around for hope which is not even there, and that's a fact that is known through ages that not all people get what they imagined when they wanted to depart their countries from the first place.
As we mentioned before, there are legal emigrates who pass the country's borders legally without using any illegal ways to get in. In spite of illegal emigrates who across national borders in a way that violates the immigration laws of the destination country.
As a reporter, the aim of this report is to study the illegal immigration and get the people aware of this growing phenomenon that's happening around them by the facts he got based on his study for this issue, and try to identify the reason that is causing this problem, also he will attempt to know the affects that this phenomenon cause, either they positively or negatively effect the nations that are under the immigration shadow. After that the reporter will aim to discover some solutions that might be helpful for this problem in general through his work on this matter.
The methods that the reporter has used for his data assembling about immigration, is based on a survey method in the form of a questionnaire that he has designed to collect data from the sample on to assist him on his work. He has also benefited from seven different internet reading sources to extract as much data as he can to back up his questionnaire findings and his main goal objectives.
Illegal immigration is a problem that affects the world especially the United States who receives a large number of immigrants in the year that lead to 57% increased of its total population, are facing a serious problem is referred to "illegal immigrants". Therefore, the American government has controlled the flow of illegal immigrants into America in order to provide more opportunities for American citizens.
And as we defined the illegal immigrant before, as a person who travels to a country for a permanent residence by violating the immigrations laws of the country without any form of identification or a passport by sea, land or air, or a foreigner who has entered a country legally but then overstays his/her own visa in order to live and/or work therein. . There are many problems which develop, including overpopulation, rising crime rates and unemployment.
However, Immigration policy is a controversial but rarely debated issue in the countries politics. Politicians usually do not take strong stances on immigration, and rarely does a candidate make immigration policy a key piece of his platform. Therefore, the issue is very divisive and decisions concerning immigration will have a large impact on this country's future.
*Causes and Reasons*
Now the first question that will cross anyone's mind is the simple question "why do people emigrate?" Of course this is a really good a question and complicated to answer. However, people emigrate from one country to another for a variety of complex reasons. Some of them are forced to move, due to conflict or to escape discrimination and prejudices or perhaps because they were treated badly, while some others may voluntarily emigrate.
Although such a move may be necessary for some of these people to do, it can be extremely distressing on top of the challenges experienced so far. From another perspective, immigration can represent an act of courage. For example, moving to another country is not always easy as it seem because that means the emigrant will try to cope with a different culture and norms which can be quite daunting, also the potential loneliness and homesickness suffered is not always easy to overcome, of course along with pressure to earn enough to live which includes food and shelter if that was in more expensive country than his original country. Therefore, Legal or illegal immigrants could leave their countries for many reasons:
-It could be a war. (Like the Palestinian or Iraqi immigrants who are immigrating to a variety of Europe countries, but most of them immigrate to near by countries like Egypt, Syria and Jordan).
-Livelihood. (It is considered as the most often reason that let the immigrant to find a better a job).
-Slavery. (Like trafficking women from all over the world and forced to have a role in slavery purposes and it is common in Asia as well parts in the middle east).
-It could be for study (legal immigrants).
No, of course not
Yes, but not quite seriously
No, but I think I'll start thinking Many people were asked were asked if they actually did think about leaving their home countries. Their answers are presented as the table and figure below shows.
Some people feel that illegal immigration should not be a major concern. They support this opinion by denying the major problems that result from the influx of illegal immigrants into the countries. Statistics show that illegal immigrants significantly contribute to the increasing population of the United States. In order to reverse this trend and others, The American government has passed many different laws to stop this.
Every American could be wondering: "What would the illegal immigration boycott look like without illegal immigration?
The lives of 12 U.S. citizens would be saved who otherwise would die a violent death at the hands of murderous illegal aliens each day.
Another 13 Americans would survive who are otherwise killed each day by uninsured drunk driving illegally.
There would be no one to smuggle across our southern border the heroin, marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamines, which plague the United States, reducing the U.S. supply of methamphetamines that day, by 80%.
Our hospital emergency rooms would not be flooded with everything from gunshot wounds, to anchor babies, to imported diseases, to hangnails, giving American citizens the day off from standing in line behind illegal.
Eight American children would not suffer the horror as victims of rape crimes.
Some people keep wondering if illegal emigrates have a negative effects like economic, social or industrial side for the countries or not. Look below.
No, of course not
Yes, but not quite seriously
I don't know
Illegal emigrates have both negative and positive impacts on different parts of the economy. As noted above, wages for low-skilled workers go down. But that means the rest of America benefits by paying lower prices for things like restaurant meals, agricultural produce and construction. Another negative impact is on government expenditures. Since undocumented workers generally don't pay income taxes but do use schools and other government services, they are seen as a drain on government spending.
The economic impact of illegal immigration is far smaller than other trends in the economy, such as the increasing use of automation in manufacturing or the growth in global trade. Those two factors have a much bigger impact on wages, prices and the health of the country's economy.
Â According to statistics, approximately 800,000 foreigners migrate legally in the U.S. and out of these around 200,000 immigrants resettle in the country as illegal immigrants. The biggest problem that the U.S. faces on account of illegal immigrants is unemployment. Illegal immigrants compete with other American for jobs. These immigrants are ready to do undesirable and hard jobs at very low wages. As a result the illegal immigrants are in great demand by employers who are looking for cheap labor.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Another problem because of illegal immigrants is the burden on the U.S. economy. Annually the country spends millions of thousands of dollars to rehabilitate illegal immigrants. The government gets this money from the taxes it collects. Apart from this the U.S. spends money on deploying additional patrolmen to guard its borders so that illegal immigration reduces to a certain extent.
Â Â Â Â
Illegal immigration causes over population and as a result there is shortage of basic amenities like potable drinking water, food, energy resources and residential land. Other problems caused by illegal immigration include racial violence, increased crime rate, corruption and promotion of terrorism. Many times it has been seen that security officials exchange sensitive and confidential information in exchange for money or expensive gifts. Many illegal immigrants indulging in securing this type of confidential information are employed by foreign governments. So, illegal immigrants can also pose a risk for national security. Healthcare is also affected by illegal immigration. Diseases like Tuberculosis are wide spread across the world because of illegal immigration.
An illegal immigrant uses many methods to break in the borders illegitimately; the first method is by crossing the borders on feet ( like Mexican-American borders), or by shipping containers who most of the people in die from dehydration or else suffocating, some of them even gets killed cause they didn't pay the 'illegal payment', and that's called international killing.
The second method is overstaying in countries that they entered legally from the first place, but they violated their visa. Perhaps sometimes these immigrants explain their staying cause of a medical condition they have, which of course is not ligament if not under governmental supervision.
The next question was if they think that governments should have restricted laws for illegal emigrates in order not to cross the borders or making punishment for any country when it comes to immigration. Their answers are presented as the table and figure shows.
No, of course not
At this rate, more and more governments are working hard to figure out ways to make restrictive laws as much as possible, cause of the fact of the increase of illegal immigrants every day.
Therefore, America has studied this case and solved it for the country's safety and to avoid the dangerous and the citizen's fear, here is the solution:
ï‚· Securing all our borders against incursions by illegal aliens, drug runners, terrorists and all others who pose a threat to our nation.
ï‚· Stopping the encouragements of illegal immigration through promises of amnesty - aiming to sharply reduce the huge tax burden on citizens and legal residents who play by the rules.
ï‚· Fully enforcing all existing laws prohibiting the hiring of illegal workers.
ï‚· Using effective, accurate identification systems, such as E-Verify, to help law-abiding employers confirm the legal working status of employees and job applicants.
ï‚· Reducing depletion of America's natural resources by lowering the unsustainably high rate of illegal invasion. (It's not "immigration," which implies something done legally. It's outright invasion, just as surely as if 14 million Middle Easterners poured off a nightly flotilla of boats on our East Coast and swarmed into the countryside.)
The final solution is to allow illegal aliens to become legal residents and ultimately maybe even citizenship, thus illegal aliens would become legal residents who would pay their share in taxes.. This solution would anger a great deal of people. First, legal immigrants would feel cheated that they followed the laws
and the slow bureaucratic process in becoming residents while illegal immigrants were not obligated to do so. Second, most citizens believe that illegal immigrants should be punished and by giving them residency is the opposite of punishment. As a result, this solution is not popular with the population of any country.
In the end, illegal immigration is unfair for taxpayers, citizens, residents, and even the illegal aliens too. Therefore, it is a really serious phenomenon that must be considered by every one and should be prevented from increasing. Unfortunately, there is no perfect solution for illegal immigration; however this is a problem that needs solving as quickly as possible. The faster illegal immigration is resolved, the better it is for everyone. That is why it should be fought by all means necessary, because if it kept in this rate of increasing in any country, consequences will start to show up and it will be too late to repair the damage.
