This talks about immigrants and how we need to help them.

Dear future president,

The number one thing we need to focus on, that you need to focus on as president, is immigration. Thirteen percent of the people in the United States are immigrants. Deporting immigrants is separating families. Immigrants come to America to live a better life. Immigrants have been in America for years they made a living here and following the laws like everybody there just like everybody else they work they follow the directions there not bad people they're just trying to give their family a better life.

Deporting immigrants causes a big problem if someone is the only one making money in their family and they get deported the family is gonna be suffering. Think about them all the time seeing somebody missing in their family hurts everybody. There just trying to be like regular family and not worry about anything.

Dear Future president just think what it would feel like if one of your parents were taking away from you for doing nothing wrong. It would feel awful because you would be thinking about them all the time.

Stereotyping make immigrants look bad saying they bring drugs and violence but there really coming to work and make their family be safe and live a great life.

I don't know what's wrong with immigrants because they don't do nothing wrong they follow the laws like an american they just come to work and get money and put food on the table there just like everybody else just trying to make a living in america. Why can't everybody be equal and be treated like everybody else.

Based on previous analysis from the Center for American Progress, a mass deportation strategy would cost an average of $10,070 per person, for a total of $114 billion to remove 11.3 million people all that money you're wasting to send me people back that haven't done anything wrong and work to just make a living we could be using all that money to fix roads, buy school supplies for schools and help the homeless.

As the next president of the United States I hope you take this very well known problem and make a solution and make everybody equal the undocumented immigrants should be legal and they would help bring business up.
