Dear Future President:
Hi, my name is Cody Eckhardt. I am 15 years old. I have a job outside of school and I see how illegal immigration is making that harder. Many people travel here undocumented and take jobs for lower wages. Also illegals come to the United States which is endangering our country. They are bringing diseases, and also more terroristic threats to the US. Also we are ruining business to trying to stop it. And the only way to prevent this things from happening is to deport all immigrants.
The government wants to put another fence around the one already built. This can harm or put people in a rough place, the reason it can be is ripping up more of people's property. A lot of people don't side with it because they would lose more of their property. Also more than 40% of our south western border is controlled by government agents. The percent of illegal aliens coming in illegally. Immigrants chose to come for various reasons, such as to live in freedom, to practice their religion freely, to escape poverty or oppression, and to make better lives for themselves and their children. Because they travel here without being documented since the government doesn't see them coming in. With them coming in and working for lower wages the US citizens are losing their jobs.
There was no federal law restriction of illegals until the 1800’s. The percentage of illegals who come here yearly is unbelievable. There were 11.1 million unauthorized aliens in 2014. There are 7 US states with over 59% of unauthorized illegal immigrants. The 7 states are Alabama, California, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina. And the rising population of immigrants aren't surprising; they said most immigrants have actually lived here for more than a decade without being caught.
A Lot of the immigrants that come here don't even cross the border they overstay their visa. And there's lots of damage to the border that president Obama knows of but just doesnt fix. Also another way is people smuggle you in by car or plane and keep you in their homes until you can leave. Also 90% of illegals pay thousands of dollars to professionals to be brought here.
There was one man who was arrested for whisking illegals here. He said he supposedly bought a half of million to 800,000 immigrants here illegally. As they were questioning him he had a route he always took. He would had to drive through 18 states to get them here. He would also bribe border agents by slapping down $10,000. He would do this for dozens of agents so he can get them through. They were looking at the smugglers payroll and found out a bunch of american board agents and patrol officers on there to keep quiet.
Finally these are some reasons we have to start flushing out illegals. They are stealing our jobs for lower wage. They travel here by our own americans for top dollar. And there are no consaceanses. We are letting them come here illegally and giving them benefits when instead we should be punishing them. On average a illegal household gets $24,721 in benefits and services.
