In the United States, factors that attract immigrants to come to the United States and the root causes that make migrants leave their country for other countries influence immigration patterns. The U.S. has a superior economy with a high probability of gainful employment compared to other countries. People sometimes move into the country with the hopes of uniting with their family members. At the same time, political chaos, high levels of poverty, or war influence immigration. The resulting consequence is that the number of immigrants continues to increase with most of them not attaining legal status. This issue requires comprehensive attention since no policies or laws, especially on illegal immigration will be effective. In light of this, the paper will provide a discussion on the solutions that should focus wholly on the security of the borders, in addition to understanding how and why the immigrants come into the country in large numbers.
Solution to the HLS-EM Problem
In the United States, illegal immigration is immense, considering that there are more than ten million undocumented individuals and the population increases every year. On one side, the occurrence of so many immigrants is a powerful demonstration of the attractive nature of the country. However, it is also a sign of the precariously open borders of the nation. The typical immigrants come to America mainly looking for better opportunities and in the process; they increase value to the economy of the nation. Nevertheless, they also lessen the value by weakening national security. Although the immigrants do not pose any security risk directly, their presence misrepresents the law, confuses the distribution of resources, and effectively creates a cover for criminals, as well as, terrorists. To solve this problem of no meaningful laws and policies on immigration, the solutions should not only focus exclusively on the security of the borders but they should also evaluate the incentives that bring the immigrants into the country.
To conclude, a comprehensive immigration reform should be established within the country. Immigration is not a bad thing for the country, however, the problem lies in the lack of effective laws and policies on immigration. As a result, there are various solutions that should be implemented. One solution will be to ensure that the illegal immigrants document and register themselves. Another solution will be to make sure that companies and organizations are included as part of the reform. Additionally, a new system for legal re-entry will guarantee that there are fewer illegal migrants dwelling in the country. Punishment will be crucial to implementing the immigration reform laws and policies as well. Overall, the issue of immigration within the country should be dealt with accordingly so as to reduce the risks to national security.
