Immigration may be the most divisive issue affecting Americans for the last decade. Social media and News agencies have been sharing the truth (as they see it) for some time now. A new study by the New Orleans Metropolitan university shows us that for every 1% increase of illegal Mexican immigration hard working Americans will suffer a 0.6% decrease in their salaries. This is because they will work under the minimum wage, therefore making hardworking Americans out of work, having to suffer. Illegal immigrants tend to be, on average less skilled and less experienced than US workers, therefore lowering productivity of the workforce, and making us all poorer.
Even though illegal immigration is cheaper than US labor, they are not as productive and produce lower quality goods, something the US heavily relies on. This means if our products aren’t as high quality, the world will not buy from our nation, lowering our exports of US-made goods and produce. We are becoming the China of the west and we would not be respected by our European buyers.
Under the Barack Obama administration, this has gone neglected, or ignored by him, illegal immigration has increased in the millions through the past 9 years. However, Donald Trump’s wall will fix this problem, amongst many other things. He also is wishing to pass legislation which will more harshly punish employers who, willingly employ illegal immigrants over hard working US citizens, something that was ignored under the Obama Administration.
This shows us all that illegal immigration punishes us all, by making us poorer, especially those who are the hard working, under apricated people who build our bridges, build our homes and our lives.
