The paper discusses how many Americans are against illegal immigrants receiving free education, employment opportunities and healthcare. The paper then examines the claim that the prevention of foreign workers from entering the United States could prove highly disruptive for farming and other low-wage industries. The paper explains that while legal and illegal immigration creates a net economic gain for the nation as a whole, it is an excessive burden on the local economies of the seven states where illegal immigrants concentrate.

From the Paper:

"People have always moved around, whether to escape war and persecution, discrimination or poverty. For the most part, a strong sense of family responsibility has always been a major factor behind migration, to provide better support and build better lives (Dwyer). However, although human migration is not new, illegal immigration is, for only recently have countries attempted to control and regulate the flow of immigration (Dwyer). While societies have attempted to exclude undesirables, such as criminals, particular ethnic or racial groups, and those with contagious diseases, it has only been in the past century that nations have tried to control the number and kinds of immigrants in a systematic way, yet such attempts have not been very effective (Dwyer)."
