Immigrant Military Reform (Argumentative Paper)

988 words - 4 pages

In a publicized meeting to a large audience in Costa Mesa, California, President Obama announced he was considering a comprehensive immigration bill that would allow unauthorized immigrants to "get out of the shadows" (Policy Beat). Several arguments about this issue have risen; among which the debate on whether illegal aliens may get citizenship after serving the military receives great attention.

These young men who dedicate their lives to America have the rights to be legalized, as in themselves they are American already.Another opposing reasoning is the seriously ailing economy and President Obama still has many other major battles to fight, such as the health care reform, new fuels, and education. "It just doesn't seem rational that any political leader would say, let's give millions of foreign workers permanent access to U.S. jobs when we have millions of Americans looking for jobs," said Roy Beck, executive director of NumbersUSA, a group that favors deportation. What these people cannot see is that, the bill would only authorize status for the people who already have the jobs but illegally, not attracting out-of-work foreigners to cross the border. Furthermore, many of the illegal immigrants are talented with specialized skills, h...
