The paper focuses on the ongoing debate about tuition breaks for illegal immigrants and argues that illegal immigrants should not profit from their wrongdoing. The paper is of the opinion that American immigration law needs to be respected or America will find itself increasingly a haven for people who may pose security risks to the country. The paper points out that this issue is important since illegal immigration will be one of the defining issues of the next generation.

From the Paper:

"Illegal immigration is a highly contentious matter in American society at the present time and it has been for a number of years. Simply put, the number of illegal immigrants in America has climbed steadily for some time and previous amnesty bills and threats to tighten border security have obviously done nothing to stop the flood of people from Mexico into America. Not least of all, the absorption of so many millions of illegal immigrants threatens to make a mockery of the United States immigration system, could lead to real troubles for the country's social welfare programs and, not least of all, constitutes a legitimate security threat; after all, it is exceedingly dangerous to have millions of people in any country who are undocumented and who could be potential saboteurs, terrorists, or violent felons."
