Perspectives on Policy Discussion

Foundations of Immigration Reform
What are some reasons that encourage illegal immigration?


Its usually due to the fact that for the majority they want a better life and be given an opportunity to pursue financial and personal success and create a sense of worth

I believe it is partially that they are seeking a better life, but mainly that out immigration laws have enticed people to come here illegally.

They also provide cheap labor and do not complain due to their status.

They believe there will be a better, easier life for they and their children. Believe there is less oppression.

Lack of opportunities in their home countries, the desire for economic wellbeing, access to better standards of healthcare and education.
