The United States provides lots of great opportunities for many people. More and more illegal immigrants try to find a way to get to the country to have a better life. Many of these illegal immigrants are helped by “coyotes,” who offer to bring them across the river for $1,000. The country is flooded by thousands of illegal immigrants, which can lead to the replacement of local American workers by them.
About 20% of cooks, 23 % of dishwashers, and 22% of housekeepers and maids do not have a valid working visa to stay and work in the United States. Still, local Americans often do not want to accept the types of jobs with a minimum wage or salary rate because it would not allow them to cover all of their expenses. Illegal immigration is often considered to be a negative impact, making Americans be displaced but these immigrants also pay a major tribute towards the United States.
Many immigrants come to the United States to work jobs that are undesirable for Americans, but many businesses would not exist without their cooperation. Americans really depend on these illegal immigrants who come from Mexico, Nepal, India, China, and other countries because they are willing to work any undesirable job, including a dishwasher or a busboy in restaurants.
This means that illegal immigration has both negative and positive impacts on different parts of the US economy. Wages for low-skilled workers tend to go down, but this allows other Americans to pay lower prices for things like agricultural produce, restaurant meals, and construction. Another negative impact is the increase of government expenditures. Because illegal workers do not pay income taxes but use different government services, including schools they lead to the increase in government spending.
Some parts of the United States experience pretty big effects from illegal immigration, including positive and negative. Economists have tried to average both positive and negative consequences and have concluded that for the whole economy, the effect is a little net positive. The average wealth of American is increased by less than 1% thanks to illegal immigration.
Illegal immigration really makes a much smaller economic impact than other trends in the economy, for instance, the increasing the growth in global trade or use of automation in manufacturing. Those two factors influence much more prices, wages, and the health of the United States economy.
