The United States has granted a lot immigration legislation. The government tries to have less immigrants from the world. The immigration legislation is considered as the legal tool for controlling the number and types of immigration allowed in the country.
The U.S. immigration policy is political and highly dependent on the economic situation. Trump claims that the immigration especially the illegal immigration steal jobs from the Americans. But in reality, the immigration do the cheaper, easier, and non-speaking works. There is the language barrier between them and their employers. They work as dishwashers, farmers, etc. These kinds of jobs Americans do not want or like to do. The native employees want to be hired for a higher salary and work in the comfortable working environment. The government should provide the chances for the legal and some illegal immigrants such improving the guest worker programs. There will be more unskilled, temporary workers work for America. The GDP will be increasing 0.2% to 0.4% by them in the US.
One of Trump’s 10 point plan to put America first is that “beginning working on an impenetrable physical wall on the southern border, on day one. Mexico will pay for the wall.” The Mexican illegal immigrants will not be allowed come in to the America but they do a lot jobs that the legal immigrants are not willing to do. He thinks the immigrants taking jobs from the local people. The New York Times got an early peak at the study and quickly produced that “Immigrants Aren’t Taking Americans’ Jobs, New Study Finds.”
The main problem is not on the immigrants but is on the local people themselves. They do not like to do the low wage jobs and just blame the immigrants. It is a really bad idea to build a wall between US and Mexico I think.
