With over 12 million illegal and undocumented people living in our country, it is not good for America’s security and safety. Not to mention, it makes it an easy conduit for terrorists entering our country. There is also a huge cost to our country, with the costs of overpopulation and welfare, medical, and education systems increasing more each day. They are abusing the system and not paying their share of taxes. Our system cannot sustain immigration the way it used to be. It is hurting our economy and affecting our country in a very negative way.
To resolve this issue or at least reduce the number of illegal immigrants, we need to enforce our laws. Every US resident should be documented and accounted for, and then deport the illegal aliens. The employers who hire illegals should also be fined. By eliminating illegal immigration, it would help the job market and lower the crime rate. They need to follow the legal process in order to become a citizen here.
