DD Month YYYY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS I think that Mexicans illegally in the country ought to be allowed to stay, given amnesty, guest worker permits, green cards and even residency. Concerning the declaration of America’s independence, everyone is created equally and born with alienable rights. Therefore, America must just go with that idea and as a result, will aid many people to achieve their dreams. America is a country of free and brave men.
The Mexicans also contribute to the federal and local tax base, these illegal Mexicans also work. Most of the Americans do not take up jobs that pay little or minimum wages, but the scenario is different from these people. They came in the country for opportunities and to improve their livings standards and as a result, they would take up any job and by doing so, they also participate in the payment of taxes. Americans only know best how to claim that there are no jobs yet they do not go out and look for them as the Mexicans struggle in looking for the same jobs and finding them (Garcia).
Immigrants in the country improve the country’s economy. A high population means an increased labor force hence more revenue for the country which in turn improves the country’s economy through their hard work and talents. They toil day and night and would take up any job to make their lives better. Whilst many Americans complain that the Mexicans take up their housing and health services, it’s not really true because the Obama care is currently taking care of the social services that everyone needs in the country. I strongly support the move to allow the illegal immigrants that are already living in America for a period of years to apply for a legal way that would allow them live in the country legally (Buff).
A great number of Mexican children attend public schools because their parents and families are unable to afford the private schools. The mere fact that they attend government-sponsored schools does not mean they deplete the country’s resources. All children are equal and should be given the opportunity to pursue their education. They also contribute to the country’s economy and hence they too can make use of the services offered by the local clinics and hospitals (Ramos).
In conclusion, the moral thing to do is to allow these people to stay in the country because they too are human beings who deserve with some kindness. Logically, there is a way in which the immigrants who are in the U.S.A illegally and meet particular requirements allowed to stay.
