America is trying to clamp down on illegal immigration problem; to pass laws that would tighten the nation’s border and make it a felony to be in the country illegally. Some Americans have strong feelings about how dangerous to open our borders to illegal immigrants; for primarily the security threat on the America soil. Tim Kane and Kirk Johnson; doctors of philosophy from The Heritage Foundation Publication made a statement about the problem with illegal immigrants. Efforts to curtail the economic influx of migrants actually worsen the security dilemma by driving many migrant workers underground.
A non-citizen guest worker program is an essential component of securing the border, but only if it is the right program. There are numerous issues involved in such a program, but the evidence indicates that worker migration is a net plus economically. ” (Kane and Johnson Pg1. ) The argument that immigrants threat the security of American economy will always be a factor. Convincing cases can be made that illegal immigrants could hurt or help the American economy.The fact is that immigration problems will always exists in America.
Thesis Statement: Illegal immigration threatens life in the United States. Illegal immigration is an ongoing problem for all of us in the United States. While the population in illegal immigrants is growing daily it is a national issue. This is having a negative effect on the job market and taxes. Congress has been deliberating on what to do about the current situation; about improving border security, employment verification, establishing temporary guest work programs.

The United States has a tradition as welcoming the immigrants into the country. The freedom to come to America for jobs and to escape the challenges in their homeland. Many will argue that the United States requires the need of immigrants to do jobs that many Americans will not do.
