why do we need immigrants in the us
I told you my position on immigration. This country hasnвt always welcomed immigrants but в in the end в it benefits from them. And immigration is needed now more than ever. The Social Security system is the epitome of a pyramid scheme. It stays solvent when more people are working and paying into the system than are getting benefits. It collapses when there arenвt enough payers. Thatвs what is about to happen. So not only do we need legal immigrants, we need them to take on-the-books jobs that contribute to not only Social Security, but also to tax receipts.
But hereвs the rub. When there arenвt enough jobs to go around в like todayвs situation в people donвt like competing against newcomers. Thatвs especially true if the newcomers are here illegally and they might work for less and need free social services. I agree with President Trump on one important thing: I donвt think anybody wants people to come into this country.
And we can only know who these potential troublemakers are if we thoroughly research their backgrounds. Itвs sad that innocent people might be delayed in getting into the US, or might not get in at all. But we have to protect the people who are already here.
In 2007 and in 2015,Pthe Pew CenterPasked Mexicans who returned home from the U. S. why they made the move.
P At the micro level, fewer reported having family or friends in the U. S. with whom they kept in regular contact. In the Pew survey, 61%Psaid reuniting with family in Mexico was the primary reason for their return. As for thePmacro level, the survey found that one-third of the respondents believed that the standard of living was no different in Mexico than in the U. S. In 2015, that figure was up 10% compared with 2007.
