It Should be Made Easier for Illegal Immigrants To Become Legal Citizens
A wise person once said, “We are a country where people of all backgrounds, all nations of origin, all languages, all religions, all races, can make a home. America was built by immigrants.” If this is true then why is it merely impossible for illegal immigrants to become legal citizens? Although illegal immigrants can be involved in various aspects of crime, we should make it easier for them to become legal citizens because They represent a huge portion of our workforce while providing jobs for others, they boost the economy, and by deporting these illegal immigrants it can cost the government more money than by letting them stay and become legal citizens which can provide money to the government.
It should be made easier for illegal immigrants to become legal citizens because they represent a huge portion of our workforce while providing jobs for others. What I mean by this is that immigrants come here for the American Dream. To achieve that dream they will need a job, and because they are illegal immigrants it can be tough to find one so they are left with two options to work odd jobs here and there getting paid under the table or to create their own which can lead them into providing other people with jobs.

One might object here that even though illegal immigrants are a part of our workforce and provide jobs for others they are known to affiliate themselves with gangs and gang activity which threatens the safety of the American people. According to “18 FACTS PROVE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE FOR U.S. ECONOMY” on Info Wars website, a gang of illegal immigrants known as “the 18th Street Gang is certainly giving MS-13 a run for their money. It is believed that the 18th Street Gang has thousands of members in the city of Los Angeles alone. In fact, the gang has become so notorious that there are even rumors that some police officers in Los Angeles simply will not venture into the area’s most heavily controlled by the 18th Street gang” (18 Facts). Although these claims may have some truth behind them illegal immigrants still do more good than harm to our country by creating jobs for the legal citizens. According to “Actual...
