This paper reviews the ongoing issue of illegal immigration to the United States of America. According to this paper, it's estimated that over eight million illegal immigrants are currently residing in the USA, people who come to the United States legally and continue even after their visa expires and many who cross borders and enter into the United States using forged documents.

From the Paper:

"The main problem with illegal immigrants is that they work in the United States but they pay little or no taxes at all. This affects the economy of the country greatly. Some also claim unemployment compensation. So with them a country has an outflow of money but little or no inflow. Many work and also claim unemployment compensation. "In the 1950s President Dwight D. Eisenhower, faced with large numbers of Mexicans crossing the Rio Grande illegally, sent troops to the Mexican border" (Ted Hayes, p.46). It took about six months and the problem was solved. However what needs to be done will be analyzed later on in the paper. Another major problem which comes with illegal immigration is the fact that due to porous borders, people associated or linked with terrorism also seep into the United States. In the September 11 attacks, the people involved were inside the United States. They did not hijack any international flight, but took control of the domestic ones. Thus if these borders are not controlled there are chances that people with a negative agenda might enter the United States and then can conduct operations from within the country."
