I am concerned about illegal immigration to our country. I am by no means against people from around the world moving to the United States of America to become citizens. That is in fact what makes our country so great and is how it has become what it is today. However if we allow people to come freely it devalues the hard work of people who perhaps struggled for years to become American citizens.
In America an American can go to jail for trivial things such as setting off firecrackers in the wrong place. Meanwhile an illegal immigrant, someone who has, legally speaking, invaded our sovereign nation, can live here for years with no consequences. In fact they often receive benefits.
The system needs to be fixed, so that if someone comes here illegally they must suffer some sort of consequence for that. Because otherwise it is unfair to the American people. I love the idea of more people coming to the US from around the globe; it would further diversify our already diverse nation and help us to advance as a nation. However they must come the right and legal way.
