Dear Mr/Mrs.. President,

Illegal immigration is becoming a big problem here in the US and were not the only state or country having this problem. They are taking away jobs for americans that need it and most Illegal immigrants are decreasing wages for the poor and increasing taxes which doesn't put us in a very good spot. They put some people out of jobs and it doesn’t help that they receive more services than they pay for in taxes. More than 10 million undocumented “aliens” currently reside in the U.S., and that population is growing by 700,000 per year which is creating an overload in the population here.

They come seeking jobs and it helps us until they decide to send the money back to their home country which leaves us in greater debt than we already were. They say that because of illegal workers, more and more Americans remain unemployed because employers sometimes favor illegal immigrants over legal residents because of cheap labor and longer working hours, which is unfair to most US citizens.

One major con illegal immigration brings is threats of terrorism and crimes against us. Although not all are terrorists and bad people, there are some who come to the U.S. to havoc fear and commit crimes like drug-trafficking and illegal activities. There have also been reports of more than a hundred cases of crimes related to illegal immigrants.
