Immigration What We Need To Do

Immigration is hurting our country but here's what we can do

Dear Future President, 

With over 11.4 million illegal immigrants in the United States, we need to do something about immigration we need to try to cut down on the amount of illegal immigrants coming through and make it easier to get a citizenship

The American government should make the process to become a citizen easier.  You need to pay a fee to be looked at as possible green card, and they never let you know where you are in the process, according to ABC News. 

It is a very hard test that USA Today says 35 percent of Americans would fail. And one resource says that immigrants can help your country, which I believe is true. They bring their culture and ideas but I believe they should come here legally so they pay taxes and contribute to society like other Americans. If they come here illegally, we should have them deported because we don't know why they are here or what they are doing and they are not paying taxes. I believe we need better border patrol because 700,000 come into the USA every year illegally. 

Immigration is a topic that you need to work on because the system is unfair and it's hurting this country and we need to do something fast.
