Immigration is a disdained problem in the U.S., but can also be beneficial for our economy.

Dear Future President,

     Immigration is a disdained problem in the U.S., but can also be beneficial for our economy.

     One of the main problems about immigration is when immigrants come to America and go to school, but have no idea whats going on because they speak a different language. This makes it harder for them to understand. If they learn English before they came to the U.S, then that would help with a lot and wouldn't cause as many problems. 

     Some immigrant neighborhoods have particularly high crime rates. I'm not saying that all immigrants are bad people, but a lot can be. If immigrants would cause less problems though, maybe things could change with the whole immigrant situation. 

     The impact on immigrants isn't the best, but the impact on everyone else is surprisingly positive. According to one of the articles I saw,  it said, "In states with more undocumented immigrants, skilled workers made more money and worked more hours; the economy's productivity grew. From 1990 to 2007, undocumented workers increased legal workers pay in complementary jobs by up to 10 percent." I say, if your not an illegal immigrant, and you have your official documents, you should be treated the same way as everyone else gets treated. Like I stated earlier,  immigrants aren't bad people.

     Immigrants bring diverse and hard-to-see benefits to average Americans while imposing more tangible costs on a few. If some things with the immigrants could get switched up, in better ways, I think that would be better.
