Illegal Immigrant Issue Is Age Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

Illegal aliens do not pay taxes but loopholes allow them to get benefits on taxpayers' expense. Besides, the Republicans might have started the immigration reform, but it was the House Democrats that allowed a provision in the bill passed in December 2005. House Judiciary Committee Chairman F. James Sensenbrenner tried to pass an amendment that would reduce illegal immigration to a misdemeanor, but although two thirds of the House Republicans sustained him, the amendment was defeated. 191 of the 254 votes against it came from Democrats.

As we speak, sanctuary laws ban police officers from initiating police action where the objective is to discover the alien status of a person" (LAPD Policy, 1979). They may not inform the ICE (formerly INS) about an undocumented immigrant" detained for minor violations. The police may only accost a deportee if the latter has given them another reason except for the immigration felony (such as an observed narcotics sale or murder), or if the alien has already been booked for several misdemeanors. Under these circumstances, 95% of all outstanding warrants for homicide in Los Angeles target illegal immigants; about 70% of the 17,000 fugitive felony warrants are for undocumented immigrants."

The law should pass the bill to make illegal immigration a felony. It would make it not only illegal for undocumented aliens to remain in the country, but it would also make it a criminal act to assist them. Charging illegal aliens with felony would have a benefic effect on the American citizens, as they will not be obliged to financially support a hand of criminals and their offspring, they would be able to walk the streets safely and they would be granted the jobs they are entitled to. The United States might be the Promised Land, but its citizens are entitled to just as many human rights as the illegal aliens.
