IMMIGRATION REFORM 4
Immigrationreform refers to current and improved changes in the immigrationpolicies of a particular state. It is achieved through amendments andremoving faults. Some economists point out that the United Statesimmigration policy is ineffective. It is because there are so manyillegal workers employed who are living in the shadows (Graham,2011).These workers are neither beneficial to the economy not the country.The President of the United States developed a plan that would helpimplement an efficient system. The system would ensure that the edgesare secured as well as arresting employers who hire immigrantslacking authentication. Most of the employers decide to hire theseimmigrants to evade taxation by the government (Newtonet al., 2013).One of the criticisms of immigration reform is that taxpayers willhave to dig deeper into their pockets. Most people argue thatlow-skilled employees who have been legalized to become United Statescitizens will pay fewer taxes as compared to Native Americans. Thecriticism further argues that allowing more immigrants workers willprove too costly to the American taxpayers.
Theadministration will implement the change under the immigration reformby securing borders and those charged for felons and gangsters.Through a continuous strengthening of the border security, thecommunity is guaranteed a safety environment. In addition, it helpsimprove infrastructure and technology. The criminals that threatenthe national security are apprehended providing the organization withan enabling environment (Graham,2011).The second priority will be on those convicted of significantoffenses such as drug trafficking and domestic violence. Immigrationreform trains and upgrade the security community programs thatrequire police to hold who are illegally present in the country(Laham,2010).The other impact of immigration reforms in the society and socialorganizations is that it helps streamline legal immigration. Itestablishes flexible laws that allow entrepreneurs and students withvisas to start businesses. Science and information technologygraduates are encouraged to remain in the country and reunite withtheir families in a more humane manner. On the same point, studentswill be able to change jobs without endangering their immigrationranks.
Tosolve the problems of immigration challenges, the security of thestate needs not be compromised. A nation calls for a few people whocome to the country to work and are ready to exploit theopportunities and pursue the American dream (Graham, 2011). However,due to misplaced immigration policies, the immigration systems arenot efficient. Most of the immigrants are low skilled with little orno education making them dependence rather than independent. Mostimmigrants come to United States to look for a better life, and henceimmigration reforms must be established to provide them anopportunity and blessings of liberty (Newton et al., 2013). Betterproblem-solving approaches help solve issues affecting theimmigration systems and offer better solutions.
Thefirst problem-solving approach is to reform the legal immigrationsystems. It will ensure that those coming to the United States uselegal means. It will also ensure that there are reforms in theimmigration services that ensure that only skilled individuals areallowed. The other approach is by making the immigration systemsresponsive to the economy needs. It includes an introduction oftemporary employee programs related to the workforce demands thatsupply rotational workforce (Laham, 2010). It would ensure that thelabor needs are met. The third approach is reinvigorating internalenforcement measures. The method involves the development of programsthat helps conduct random inspection at workplaces to identifyillegal immigrants.
