Why illegal immigration is such a big issue
Imagine this, it is night, you are a thirteen-year-old teenager who is trying to sneak in and climb the immigration wall.When suddenly, a spotlight shines on you, and the coyotes, the people who are supposed to help you, tell you to run back, but it is already too late, the immigration police already have a gun pointed at you and you surrender. This is a common scene happening with illegal immigrants. They want to sneak in because they want a better life for themselves and their family. They believe that America must be better than their native country but in reality, you find work that nobody else wants because it is either disgusting, backbreaking, or both. Abusive supervisors know the immigrants can't be found out so they offer them the poorest conditions and lowest pay because the supervisors know the immigrants won't speak out.
Illegal immigrants work at the worst jobs with the lowest pay that nobody wants. They can barely feed their family, but it is still probably better than their native countries where violence was frequent and they were always in danger of raids. But this doesn't mean that America doesn't have its own share of violence. Managers know that illegal immigrants are desperate not to draw any attention to themselves because the government might notice and deport them, so they often force the workers sometimes to work for very long hours and for very little pay, and the managers also sexually harass the immigrants and rape were common.
Maybe illegal immigrants aren't living as easy as we thought they are
If you or someone you know got deported, what would you do? Would you be scared that you might be next? Would you lock your kids indoors and only travel at night? These are all the concerns that illegal immigrants face every day. Our head would probably explode with our emotional taste of a teaspoon.The illegal immigrants desperately try not to draw any attention to themselves and work as quietly as possible.
In conclusion, the lives of illegal immigrants maybe weren't as easy as we thought it was and if we just deal with them by just deporting them, they would starve and violence would occur in their home country. Everyone has a different story and some people just have such a sad one that we just don't understand how they can live through such pain and agony every single day
