I believe deportation and amnesty is not
the solution to solving cases of an undocumented immigrant in the United States
(Espenshade & Charles, 189- 224). As such, the government must introduce a
program that will monitor all activities of immigrants. This program well
awards citizenship only to those immigrants who are involved in any crime in
the United States as well as those who have started the family with natives.
Also, deportation can be applied only to those immigrants who are lawbreakers.
This legal status will boost United States
productivity and wage; they can achieve this by document immigrants. According
to researchers, if they award the immigrants who are available for legal status
the citizenship, they will generate about 876 billion to the economy in ten
Approximately 12 million
undocumented immigrants are living in the United States. Deporting this entire immigrant to their
native countries is unrealistic.
Instead, United States government must offer them legal means to become citizens
(Borjas). Regularizing immigrant by
awarding them with citizenship will only strengthen united states national
security, stimulate a sound economy, vibrant and diverse culture.
Pros of Illegal Immigration in Regards to Both the U.S.
and Texas Economies
After reading the passage in the book, I
agree with Julian Castro, that, Texas states must establish a department that
will monitor the population increases in the country. And all undocumented
immigrants must be given the proper paper. Whenever, the nation provide
adequate immigrant paper they become business owners, taxpayers, and neighbours
to natives. However, immigrants are an integral part of Texas diverse and
thriving members of society. According to Texas economist, immigrant’s business
owners have generated approximately 8.1 billion dollars in business income
every financial year.
All in all, population changes have some
political implication. Over the years
population changes have created political stability in many states in the
United States. Those rich states with
low growth are the most stable, while those poor and developing countries have
high growth rates hence suffering from chronic instability. The statement above
is the reason as to why Texas natives have started to consider immigrants as
the threat to their economy. Population changes implication has created
enormous political instability mostly to ethnic division exist; this
consequence complicates problems of Texas states government by supporting
urbanization. Another impact of changing population is the unbalanced age
structure which occurs as a result of rapid increases in the population that
hinders satisfaction of employment, education and healthcare systems(Citrin
& Jack & Donald, 1124- 1154). Moreover, population changes have created
a job insecurity tension among the natives. Due to the high number of immigrant
native’s argue that they are going to occupy their job since immigrants are
paid low wages as compared to Texas natives.
Texas has a long history of immigration,
20% of Texas population is made up of immigrants hailed from Mexico. These
immigrants have contributed to the changes that have occurred in Texas in the
past decade. Due to increased
population, Texas economy has been boosted as well as the growth of industries.
Population changes in Texas have pulled nearly 50 percent of industrial workers
from the immigrant community. In the year 2010, Texas census reported a massive
shift in population. During her count she recorded a rise of 4.3 million since
the year 2000 and 2010; these figures represented the highest population
changes (Nei & Takeo & Ramjet, 1-10). Additionally, due to immigration
her population, have adopted different languages, religions and cultural
norms. The natives inherit the way of
the immigrant. It is inevitable for her to resist population changes since
immigrants have become part of their history.
How Population is changing in Texas
is one of the largest states in the United States. Geographically Texas is
positioned in south-central religion. For the past decade, Texas has
experienced tremendous growth of population due to immigration. Majority of
immigrates came from Mexico and other parts of the world. Immigration has
changed Texas economy in many dimensions such as economic growth, intermarriage and cultural believes among
