    1. Illegal Immigration

    2. Background • Currently, an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in US • About 7 million from Mexico • Concentrated in California, Texas, Florida, NY, New Jersey, & Arizona • Foreign-born Americans will exceed 15% of population by 2025 (highest ever)

    3. What are the Key Issues? • Border Security • Businesses who hire illegals/Jobs • Tax dollars • “Mixed” families • How will they vote?

    4. 1. Border Security • Are we really worried about illegal immigrants crossing the border? • Key issue with border security revolves around terrorism

    5. 2. Businesses who hire illegals/Jobs • Americans - immigrants are a threat to their jobs & wage levels (unemployment at 7.4%) • Also a drain on services – schools, police, health care • Businesses – immigrants take jobs Americans no longer want • What should the penalty be (if any) for businesses who hire illegals?

    6. 3. Tax Dollars • Illegals do not pay taxes; in many cases their children (if born in US) still take advantage of federal programs, i.e. schools • If family stays in Mexico (for example), US dollars go back to Mexico, hurting our economy

    7. 4. “Mixed” Families • Parents enter the US illegally, but children, born in the US, are citizens – Anchor Babies • What do we do with them? • Deport entire family? • Deport just the parents & put kid(s) in foster care? • Let the parents stay with children? • Estimated 1 million children enter US illegally but have grown up with American customs for years • What do we do with them?

    8. 5. How will they vote? • Hispanics are now largest minority group • How they will vote is the biggest roadblock to getting federal legislation passed • Most Hispanics would typically vote… • Democrat

    9. What has been suggested??? • Enforce laws and deport all illegal immigrants • Blanket Amnesty – all illegals become citizens • Earned Citizenship – a new program that requires illegals already in US to receive citizenship by meeting certain criteria within a certain timeframe • All politicians typically favor increasing border security…some have even suggested building a wall/fence

    10. Earned Citizenship/Immigration proposals… • Typically include some/all of the following: • Illegals must pay back taxes they owe • Pass criminal background check • Learn English • Pass citizenship test • Increase penalties for businesses who hire illegals • Increase border security • New temporary worker program (allow migrants to work in US for limited time)

    11. Arizona Law • Police have broad power to arrest anyone they think may be in US illegally • Crime for all noncitizens not to carry immigration papers

    12. Two Views of the AZ Law • Needed for Border Security & crime • Racial Profiling
