Illegal Immigration

Dear Future President, I am writing to you today to inform you on my concerns of illegal immigration. Today, the United States has over 11 million illegal immigrants living in it. Some say the illegal immigrants benefit our society, and that may be true. However, I do not think that illegal immigrants should be allowed to live in the United States. The Center for Media and Democracy provided ProCon.Org with information regarding illegal immigrants. According to ProCon.Org, a person who crosses the United States boarder who is an illegal immigrant should be removed and not rewarded with the jobs that could belong to citizens who were born in the United States legally. If we do not stop illegal immigration, then it could result in the loss of American jobs and terrorism. All my life, I have a had a fear of terrorists coming into our country and destroying it. I also want legal citizens to have more job opportunities, so they can support their families. Please, future President, help our country to make the best decisions for our country when it comes to illegal immigrants entering. We never know who is going to be entering our country. Although some illegal immigrants may be hard workers, they could also be drug dealers, terrorists, and criminals. I’m not saying that people from other countries should never be able to enter the United States, but first we need to have more secure and strict background checks. The background check should include checking their record, who they have connections to, and much more. Once our country can provide more secure backround checks the illegal immigrants can enter our country as legal immigrants. I know that some of the illegal immigrants cannot go home because it’s too dangerous for them in their country. This is why I don’t think that the immigrants need to be sent home, they just need to be kept out until the background check is completed. Without more secure backround checks our country will be in serious danger. Our world has been filled with terror, which has resulted in many people to fear the future world. Our country is at risk if the issue of terrorism isn’t solved. Since our country has refused to secure our borders, there is now a possibility that there are terrorist living in the United States. Our country needs to know that if we let our borders stay unsecured we will experience terror. On November 13, 2015 Isis attacked Pairs. CNN.org stated this attack resulted in 130 people dead and hundreds were wounded. The United States needs to know that something like this could happen in our country if we don’t secure our borders. Many people in our country have trouble finding jobs and are unemployed. With over 11 million illegal immigrants living in the United States many of the jobs are given to them. Steven A. Camarota a PhD Director of Research at the Center for Immigration Studies states, this leaves 58 million people who were born in the United States without jobs. I believe this is very unfair for the people who were born in the United States. Last November, there were 1.5 million people who were born in the United States that didn’t have jobs and there are 2 million illegal immigrants who have jobs. This is unacceptable and there needs to be a change. Illegal immigrants are not always bad, that is why I am asking you to build a center for those immigrants who can’t stay in their country anymore. The centers will be divided into different locations so that there will not be 11 million people at one center. The centers don’t have to be a punishment for the immigrants but they can be a place where they can stay. If we don’t fix this issue, then our county will be in serious trouble. One of my biggest fears is the thought of Isis coming to our country and destroying the United States. I believe that many more people share the same fear. This fear will continue until or country can fix it. So please, future President, help our country and take away that fear. Sincerely, Raegen
