Similarities between Legal and Illegal Immigrants

In addition to volume, the main countries of origin of immigration are an important aspect. Figure 2 shows the proportion of immigrants from 20 of the main source countries during the 1960s to 1990s. Mexico dominates U.S. immigration like no other nation. Although Mexico was an important country of origin in the 1960s, it did not eclipse all other countries of origin, as it increasingly did in each subsequent decade. This may seem unbelievable to someone unfamiliar with immigration law, but there are so many nuances of immigration law (especially with recent changes) that it can be easy to skip a simple procedure and be labeled “illegal.” Such continued and uninterrupted growth in immigration [since 1965] is unprecedented in American history. Thus, the underlying logic of many is that immigration is a right, not a privilege. Legal theory, which aims to tailor immigration policies to the needs of those who wish to immigrate to the United States, has made it increasingly difficult to establish policies that select immigrants based on their ability to advance our national interests. In short, Mexico`s border with the United States with a 2,000-mile limit, coupled with lax U.S. enforcement, large economic differences, the Mexican government`s de facto policy of pushing its poorest residents north, and large numbers of Mexican immigrants already here to house illegal aliens and drive them to jobs, provide opportunities and grounds for a violation of immigration law. Systematic scaling. Another way to distinguish this escalation is to compare annual admissions.

For example, the United States admitted 265,393 immigrants in 1960 and 296,697 in 1965, the year of immigration expansionism. In 1969, 358,579 immigrants were admitted, 462,315 in 1977, 601,516 in 1987 and 915,900 in 1996. Going from two and a half million immigrants admitted in a decade to one million a year would overwhelm any immigration system; This rapid increase has put a strain on the U.S. system. As the data show, legal and illegal mass immigration is closely linked. The following recommendations would help to solve the problems that currently arise from the fact that legal and illegal immigration are two sides of the same coin. It is difficult to solve our problem of illegal immigration and there will be strife along the way. Turning a blind eye again, however, is not the solution. The lure of “citizenship by birth” plays into the calculation of many foreigners willing to violate U.S. immigration law. A Supreme Court`s misinterpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution automatically grants U.S.

citizenship to virtually anyone born on U.S. soil, including the children of illegal aliens. It is highly unlikely that immigration authorities would attempt to deport an illegal alien whose child is a U.S. citizen. Therefore, “citizenship by birth” provides illegal aliens with an “anchor baby” that provides them with relative security of permanent residence, if not legal status. You may think you`ve completed the immigration process in accordance with the law, but due to language barriers or the inability to understand “legal language,” you`re on the wrong side of the law. [T]he criteria for U.S. citizens were used in immigration law until 1965. If the law had given preference only to spouses and minor children, this would have had little effect on the figures. But there was also a preference for adult sons and daughters, parents of adult immigrants, siblings. If a family member could gain a foothold, they could begin a chain of migration within an extended family, constantly jumping into new families through in-laws, and establishing new chains there.10 The Survey of New Immigrants sheds a troubling light on the reality of immigration.

It highlighted a systematic tendency toward lawlessness and line breaking, even among so-called “equal” immigrants – many were in fact illegal aliens first. 51 See John v. Eastman, testimony at a hearing before the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims, September 29, 2005, on “Dual Citizenship, Birthright Citizenship, and the Meaning of Sovereignty” ( and Charles Wood, “Osing Control of America`s Future — The Census, Birthright Citizenship, and Illegal Aliens,” Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, Vol. 22, No. 2, Spring 1999, pp. 465-522. Figure 1 shows the sharp increase in immigration per decade.

Legal immigration quadrupled from 2,515,479 admissions between 1951 and 1960 to 9,095,417 between 1991 and 2000. Another compelling fact is that countries that send large numbers of immigrants to America also tend to send significant portions of the illegal alien population. Mexico is the most striking example of this phenomenon. However, other countries in the Western Hemisphere are among the largest sources of legal and illegal immigration. An illegal immigrant is an immigrant who has entered the country in a way that violates that country`s immigration law. An illegal immigrant can also be an immigrant who entered the country legally for a temporary stay, but stayed illegally beyond their vacation date. The United States offers a stable political system, a legal system based on the rule of law, broad individual freedom and economic opportunity, a healthy economy and generous government benefits, in addition to extremely generous private charities. America is relatively free of public corruption and offers a safe place to live. Compared to many other places, would-be immigrants may view the United States as a country of great wealth, where the streets appear to be paved with 14-karat gold.

Illegal immigrants should not expect their life here to be the same as those who are legal citizens. They broke the law to come here and should expect to be deported if they face immigration and customs (ICE). Because there are so many illegal immigrants in the country, estimated at 11 million, the chances of being found and deported are very slim unless there is a concerted effort to find and deport them. It is not in sight in the foreseeable future, if at all. But how can anyone in their right mind oppose the crackdown on illegal immigrants who commit serious crimes? In the process, some illegal people who have not committed serious crimes are arrested and possibly deported. It is unfortunate and sad, but they are here illegally. The New Immigrant Survey also found that while two-thirds of adult immigrants had spent time in the U.S. before obtaining a permanent resident visa (about one-third of them as illegal aliens), 84 percent of Mexican immigrants had previously been to the U.S. “A clear majority (57%) of Mexican immigrants already have experience as illegal border crossers and 9% are visa violators.” 32 That is, two-thirds of Mexican immigrants were formerly illegal aliens. Now, I think it`s clear that the current legal immigration system, which recognizes not only the nuclear family of incoming immigrants, but also the [naturalized] United States.

Family relationships more distant from citizens create a system in which immigration expectations and visa demand growth at least are automatic, it is inherent. The growth in demand becomes exponential because every time another extended family member arrives, that person could also have spouses, children, and other distant relatives associated with that incoming immigrant, which, as you can see, creates a kind of geometric growth pattern.44 These numbers also indicate why poll after poll shows that the American people generally don`t have clear distinctions.44 These numbers also indicate why poll after poll shows that the American people generally do not have clear distinctions. between illegal and legal immigrants. As unfortunate as this prospect may be from a civil liberties perspective, it is hardly irrational.
