that receives immigrants has the responsibility of caring for them yet they evade taxation. This country is forced to expand jails as well as to accommodate the illegal immigrants as they await deportation. Population increases in one country due to uncontrolled immigration. This causes
unequal resources’ distribution. If immigration is not restricted, resources are exhausted and their
benefits that would be realized from the immigrants are lost. Native communities depending on
the resources suffer at the immigrants’ expenses.
Immigration does not alter the skills that are required to perform particular tasks in the regions of the natives. Additionally, immigrants do not allocate jobs to themselves but they are preferred by the local industries so that they can minimize the operation costs. There are immense benefits for the local industries that establish plants where immigrants settle. States like Chicago and California have showed massive growth in employment due to their investments in the immigrant-intensive industries. Governments of the countries that receive immigrants should hasten the process of documenting and registering immigrants as a way of minimizing illegal
immigration cases and reducing jails’ congestion.
Immigration can change the economy of a country despite being blamed for increased tension and violence among the people. Immigrants possess the capacity for transforming the host
country’s economy. The U.S has utilized immigration in achieving the 21
mic aspirations. Nevertheless, some natives complain that they are denied job opportunities and services from the government by the immigrants. Their belief is that crime rates continue to rise
because of the illegal immigrants’ influx. To maximize the ach
ieved benefits and to mitigate the strain, the government of the U.S should establish policies for checking the documentation of the immigrants. Interaction between the natives and the immigrants should be encouraged to eliminate racial discrimination and conflicts. If a review of the existing laws is not done, immigrants will increase to a level that will be unmanageable.
