Immigration policies: Facts to keep in mind

Immigration has a primarily positive impact on the United States. People come to the United States to work, be with their families, go to school and find love. Many immigrants are entrepreneurs, which means that their very presence in the United States creates jobs for others after they arrive.

As the Baby Boomer generation retires, immigrants will be more important than ever. Why, then, does it seem that the country's laws are becoming so difficult? Why are changes being made that threaten individuals who want to be in the United States?

The immigration policy

Overall, the immigration policies are in place to protect the people in the United States and to help those who want to come to the United States do so if they have a good reason for doing so. For example, if you have a job offer and a business willing to seek a visa on your behalf, it's easier to obtain a visa and residency in the United States.

The increased immigration controls put into place by the current presidential administration hopes to remove those who are in the country illegally or those who violate the law while in the country. As a side effect, many people now worry about deportation when they've done nothing wrong or have no path to citizenship after having been brought to the United States as a child.

The unauthorized immigrant population

The unauthorized immigrant population has reduced slightly in current years. Overall, Mexican people make up around half of all undocumented immigrants, but that number is reducing as well. Most people who are unauthorized to be in the country reside in California, Texas, New York, Florida, Illinois or New Jersey, which are hot spots for immigration control efforts.

Every immigration case is different, and it's not fair to look at all people in the United States illegally in the same way. No one should have to worry about sudden deportation, especially if they've lived in the United States for their whole lives.
