Illegal Immigration in the United States
Illegal immigration is criminal migration to a country in violation of the immigration laws and sovereignty of that country. Illegal immigration raises many political, economic and social issues and has become a source of major controversy in developed countries and the more successful developing countries. We all know that the main reason why people come to the United States is to get a better education, in other to have a better future, also because in other countries there is restriction on education; only the wealthier ones are allowed to go to certain schools, or just the males are allowed to go to school, and also not all countries have public schools. Since United States offer education ...view middle of the document...
This is an issue to the society because; this helps to create more drug dealers in the country. Also on the other hand illegal immigrant could be helpful to the society by giving them education, and this will help in future because they can be retain and be useful for the United States. I can remember watching the news on CNN, and I heard a girl was not accepted into a school in Texas because she is not an American, things like this should not be allowed, anyone should not be rejected to get education because of his or her race, this can cause young youth to engage into illegal business, and this would be a big disadvantage to the society.
Education can also help illegal immigrant by an education system that provide them with the language they speak, and also with and extra hour on English language to help them straighten their English. Only few schools in the country offer bilingual education, and even fewer have a teacher that can speak Spanish fluently. This causes illegal immigrants and children of undocumented immigrants to feel different, alone in a new and confusing place and dumb. This poor self-esteem causes them to have poorer test scores in math and science as well as English. If the government could try and help them, understanding that they are here for a better future, and provide them with an education system that will suite them financially, this would be really helpful for them. Illegal immigration can cause a major problem in the society; it raises the crime rate of the country, if this people are pulled out of their shadows the country will be in more safe hands, because it would be easy to identify criminal, most of the illegal immigrants do not have a social security number, that is why they can be identify when they break the law.
