So, when in doubt and when you want to get smarter about a subject, ask the peeps in polloftheday for their thoughts. If you live near the Mexican border or in a place strongly affected by illegal immigration, it would be nice to hear your thoughts on this issue.
It is estimated that the population of illegal immigrants in the United States is between 7 and 20 million people. What should be done to address this problem?
Illegal immigration to the USA from Mexico is attributed to economic reasons. Although Mexico is one of the richer nations in the world, it also has one of the widest gaps between rich and poor. The minimum wage in Mexico is about $3.50 US per day. Should pressure be put on Mexico to narrow this gap?
Some argue that illegal immigration is actually good for the US economy because illegal workers contribute more to the public coffers in taxes than they draw in social services. Others argue that illegal immigration is the main reason that the US health care system is in trouble. What do you think, does illegal immigration help of hurt the US economy?
Are you in favour of border vigilante groups like the Minutemen?
Are you in favour of an amnesty program for illegal immigrants?
Which of the following statements do you agree with?
Thanks and I'll make up for all this brain labour with another silly poll soon.
