Why the US has so many undocumented immigrants.

Subscribe to our channel!

Immigration looked very different before 1996, when President Bill Clinton signed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA). The law was supposed to stop undocumented immigration by increasing enforcement and punishing people for being in the US undocumented. Instead, it incentivized people to stay in the US - and the undocumented population doubled.

When researching this story we used a lot of great resources. Here are a few of the most helpful:

This collection of articles on IIRIRA by the Center for Migration Studies explains many angles on the law itself, the politics of the time that led to its passing, and the ongoing impact:

Douglas S. Massey at Princeton and his co-authors have written about how border enforcement backfired, including in this 2016 paper:

We got data on return probabilities to Mexico after a first undocumented trip from the Mexican Migration Project:

Polling data about Americans’ views on immigration come from the Pew Research Center and Gallup:

Annual Border Patrol budget comes from the American Immigration Council: www.americanimmigrationcounci...

We relied on Pew’s data on the number of undocumented immigrants in the US, which also explains more on the changing nature of immigration to the US in recent years:

The Migration Policy Institute has covered the issue over the years, including in this recent policy brief:

Cato Institute’s Alex Nowrasteh has written about the issue, including this article on the three- and 10-year bars:

Republicans: immigrants are stealing our jobs!! Democrats: Let’s legalize them, eliminating employers taking advantage of their status by paying unlivable wages under the table. It will also create more jobs for Americans and boost the economy with trillions of taxes Republicans: *FiLiBuStER* It was never about economics, immigration reform is long overdue, hoping dems can pass it through budget reconciliation

How are immigrants a strength? I watched this video with the hope of gaining insight on an actual US law that could be responsible for the massive illegal population here in the US. I find myself disappointed, VOX essentially argues, "strict punishment for illegal immigration incentivizes illegal immigration". This is such backwards thinking. The reason immigration is out of control is because we've let our guard down at the border. We haven't punished companies for hiring illegal immigrants. It's funny because often times it's rich liberal who work for media enterprises, large tech giants and other sophisticated professions that spout this "illegal immigration is our strength" nonsense. You might want illegal immigration to continue because that means Pedro will still mow your lawn every Monday for 30 bucks, or that Maria will come clean your house biweekly for 100 dollars. Or that addition you wanted to build for your house, Jose will do it for a mere 400 dollars. You people who work these white collar jobs aren't the ones who have to compete for a landscaping gig, or a construction contract with Jose and his pals who will vastly undercut market prices in order to secure the job. Illegal immigrants will work for less. They undercut competitive, competent American businesses. That's what it's about. How about the Kroger warehouse down the street, or the tile factory 10 minutes out. These are the jobs illegal immigrants take. Jobs that would otherwise pay better but due to illegal immigrants working for less, don't. It's no wonder American wages have been on the decline since the 1980s.

My wife missed to notice that her I94 expiry was shortened before her passport was expiring. She got a valid Visa until 2022. She is 30 weeks pregnant with our second child right now and our application with nunc pro tunc got denied. It feels inhumane and unreasonable. Been living here for 10 years, married, kids and now she is banned for 10 years. It's devastating for us and the stress my wife is going through during her third trimester is unimaginable. She can't even leave the country at this time. We are it's our fault to miss it but the consequences are horrifying.

It should be a Fee Based system. Immigrants pay smugglers between 5k to 10k U$D each to be smuggled across the border. This means its possible to requiere immigrants who intent to stay to deposit the equivalent to 2 months US average income (+ the percentage of foreign born population) into a EBT account, which would be about ~8600 U$D. This is of course after passing a background check.

Because imitation laws are racist and invented to encourage white European visitors to come with no visa needed while counties or color require not just a visa but to prove to an interviewer they will leave. While Europeans can stay 3 months no issue. That's enough to find a sponsor, a job, or get married.

Cesar Chavez proved they are and was able to unionize the farm workers for doing so. We Americans aren't against immigration. Just illegal immigration. But today a certain sector has obliviated the lines. Even whites were subject to immigration laws not too far in our past. Even to the point they were told to Americanize their names.

What seems to be the case is that lots of people choose overstaying Visa which they then become an illegal immigrant. In that case it seems that marrying a US citizen would allow for green card sponsorship. This is because they came in legally.

USA always seems to develop their own laws with minimal references to other country models. I am an anesthesiologist. Every few years the hospital would hire consultants at a significant cost to recommend new strategies to improve the functioning hospitals. They never asked for input from physicians actually in the trenches. Same with immigration. So much waste with one hand not knowing what the other is doing. look at our postal system. Look at Amtrak still being subsidized. Look what China has done it’s their trains in just 10 years.

If the main issue is the fact their not documented and the documentation is designed to record criminal history at least in the context of the argument (ignoring the obvious fact that a sheet a paper shouldn’t really be used to define wether or not a group of people are criminals by nature) then the obvious solution would be to give them documentation and record any previous history without the immediate threat of deportation. Like how else are you really going to document crime I do the vast majority are just immigrants not criminals. How would you even know if they were if their not even properly documented? Seriously what is the logic that we should deport them solely on the principle they don’t have a piece of paper that somehow defines every aspect of their nature as individuals? (Sorry typos don’t have time to fix it rn)

That is not true most Americans want for a Correct way of immigrating. Not illegally, so that’s not true. In fact I have a Big feeling that Joe Biden‘s administration is going to have a mass deportation As they have already started with fast track deportation to anyone that comes into the country illegally and that means that soon enough there are going to be ICE Agents surprising illegal immigrants whether in their homes or jobs and deport them. Many reasons for that is that immigration is actually hurting our country especially when it comes from places where they need help like Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and even other nations like Haiti and Venezuela. We have already reached a cap in illegal immigration and this is why both political parties are working together to work away into rebuilding America by first helping the American poor and that means that anyone that is illegal in this country has a very high risk of being deported. So the fact that they are trying to say that Americans have changed their views in illegal immigrants is completely wrong. Instead there’s going to be better immigration from people from countries in Europe, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, even India. Where there’s going to be more skilled people to help with the upcoming technology innovations and for better lifestyle. People need to understand that just south of The border into Mexico there is lots of chaos and lots of corruption and some of the people that are coming in are actually creating a havoc. Even in Latin America in countries like Costa Rica, Panama, Uruguay, Chile, Argentina Are going to follow along in strengthening borders and only allowing skilled immigrants with college degrees etc. etc. I do believe in the merit based system because it really helps as it has been helping in countries like Australia. Yes you see lots of immigrants also in parts of Canada but a lot of them are very skilled and they also have a merit based system in immigration.

If they are illegally in the county, they broke two laws. Theft being one. You cannot legally work in the US undocumented. If you have DACA, you are documented. We know you're here. The undocumented showed zero respect for this country's policies or laws, so yes, deportation would be positive by showing we are a nation of laws. US is already the 3rd most populated county in the world. We have been more than generous with immigration, but the line in the sand needs to be drawn somewhere. Immigration is good for underpopulated countries. This country is full.
