This paper discusses the impact of illegal immigration to the US, focusing on costs to the economy. Additionally, the paper examines issues of granting US citizenship to children of illegal immigrants that are born in the US. The paper also presents statistics about the numbers of illegal immigrants residing in the US. The paper concludes by addressing self-deportation, or immigrants returning to their nations of origin, particularly during the current economic slowdown.
From the Paper:"Of the 100 additional Americans since 1967, approximately 53% were recent immigrants and their relatives (Roberts, 2006). If they did not settle in the US, there would only be 250 million people instead of 300 million. The population is also changing color and cultures. Around 15% are Latinos and 5% are Asians. In 1970, the Hispanic population was only 5% and the Asian was only 1%. A nation of predominantly European descent has transformed into a multicultural mingling of virtually all continents. Some entered as war refugees and others as searchers for better opportunities and a better life. When settled, they produced more offspring than non-immigrants and raised the birth rate to higher levels than Europe's and Japan's. The average person in the US today can expect to live up to age 78."
