Let's Explode Some Myths about Immigration

Sometime in the month of February, two men of Indian descent were at a Kansas bar having a drink when they were shot, killing one and the other sustaining injuries. Apparently, the assailant had the preconceived notion that they were in the country without the proper documentation. Well, he was wrong. The victims had lived, worked and studied in the United States. They were in the country legally. The easy thing to do would be to attribute this to the handiworks of a deranged individual. If that was true. As the economy of nations around the world is slowly getting back up from the fiscal crisis it encountered women years back, salaries of the working class have relatively been still, and the number of those against the migration of individuals into the country is steadily on the increase. The voice of propagation of these views can be largely attributed to the rise to power of the current president of the United States and his stance on migration. Scholars in the country have proven that there was a significant rise in the racial criminal activities targeting Muslim worshippers in the country just a few days after the president gave a speech as a candidate for the white house on why the United States should completely shut its borders to Muslims from all across the world. There is a terrible stance brewing, and there is no assurance it would go away any time soon. That can be observed from the decision of the present administration to send back a couple of students of Indian descent. There are some truths and reality to debunk the discussion and debate put forward against migration; there are arguments on how foreigners are taking the life away from the economy, about how they come into the country and rob citizens of employment, about how they refuse to blend into the system and cause untold damage to the country’s traditions. One way of viewing this is to view the monetary impact that foreigners provide. What this entails is how much does a foreigner pay regarding levies and return how much quality education, healthcare, and welfare do they receive? As far as a report sometime in 2013 states, the fiscal effect of migrants in that year was put at around $2.9 billion. What that translates to is that foreigners ended up giving more to the economy than they did receive in return.
