Do we need illegal migrants?
There are many heard misconceptions about illegal immigration. Immigration levels have increased by a significant extent. People migrate for a variety of reasons and purposes, some are economic and others are non-economic. Any average people know the economic reasons, such as pursuing economic advantages, and educational opportunities. One of non-economic purposes is seeking friends or family members who have tried to cross into the US illegally. People make influence decisions to migrate illegally.

S. native citizens blamed illegal immigrants for being in the country. Yet, the U.S. government has knowledge of entry of those illegal immigrants. Basically, employers make higher business profits through illegal immigration, so it benefits US government also. Many migrants are encouraged to enter the country illegally, by a large number of groups. Large and small companies are remaining in the market because of illegal workers, who entered the country illegally at the request of those companies. The companies pay low wages for labor while wanting competent and reliable workers.
Most people say that undocumented workers significantly depress the wages of native born workers. Thus deprived of illegal workers, many companies might have rough sledding to productize. Brendan Flanagan, director of legislative affairs for the National Restaurant Association, insists “Restaurants, hotels, nursing homes, agriculture — a very broad group of industries — are looking for a supply of workers to remain productive.”
We should accept Obama's immigration policy as it provides an opportunity for illegal immigrants to work legally, with temporary work permits. The report illustrates the desire of U.S government to deport illegal immigrants and separate them from their children- who are born in the U.S. Thus, causing families suffering, and to feel a substantial sense of unfairness.

American citizens argue that the U.S borders aren’t secure enough to stop illegal immigrants. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., a leading immigration-control advocate in Congress said “The reason we do not have secure borders is because of an insatiable demand for cheap labor.” Furthermore, the Democratic Party and Republican Party see illegal immigrants as source of voters and profitable cheap labor coming through unsecure borders.
Some of the public claim that illegal migrants are criminal minded, since they entered the country illegally. Rep. Steve King, (R-Iowa), said to his opposition to immigration "Some of them are valedictorians, and their parents brought them in," King said. "For everyone who's a valedictorian, there's another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert." And he said "doesn't mean that there aren't groups of people in this country that I have sympathy for." He called them, those how are "undermining our culture and civilization." However, many studies showed illegal immigrants have a lower crime rate than native- born.
