Illegal immigration power point

  1. 1. Illegal Immigration MQ: Should illegal children born in the United States be given birthright citizenship? By Gerardo Peraza Block A
  2. 2. Introduction • Illegal immigrant- person who has entered or lives in a country unlawfully or without the country’s authorization. • Illegal children represent 5.4% of all children under the age of 18.
  3. 3. Continued • From 2003 to 2009 the illegal population has jumped from 2.7 million to 4 million. • The population of native-born Americans has fallen for 4 straight decades.
  4. 4. When did illegal immigrants start crossing the border? • The border between the United States and Mexico was created in 1848. • It is unknown when exactly illegals started crossing over but most people say it was the year after.
  5. 5. How do illegal immigrants cross the border? • Illegal immigrants pay people who are called coyotes to smuggle them across the border. • The amount is usually 1,500 dollars per head. • They call family members or friends in the United States to meet them when and if they cross.
  6. 6. How do illegal immigrants cross the border? • The journey takes them across scorching deserts, or freezing mountain passages. • It is very risky because many get lost and die of hunger/thirst or killed by gangs/bandits.
  7. 7. Why are illegal immigrants crossing the border? • At first only men, they came to find work. • Minimum wage jobs that no one else wanted to do. • Women also crossed to find work. Some started to cross to give birth to children in United States. • Because of the 14th amendment that child would be legal and could apply for legal residency for their parents at age 21.
  8. 8. Where do illegal immigrants hide in? • Mostly big cities, in small towns they would be recognized, reported, and deported back to central or south America. • Los Angles, California • San Francisco, California • Seattle, Washington etc.
  9. 9. How does a child from an illegal immigrant affect the U.S. population? • Children from illegal immigrants will expand the work force and eventually will pay taxes. • However, they demand more resources to cover for basic services (education, health, etc.), which amounts to a virtual tax on U.S citizens. • There is a need to correct the 14th amendment, in a way that it rewards those who follow the rules and immigrate legally and punish those who break the law.
  10. 10. Immigration and Customs Inspectors • $29.86 hourly, $62,110 annual • Customs and Border Protection Officer (CBPO), Border Protection Officer (US CBPO), and Canine Enforcement Officer (K-9 Enforcement Officer). • Employment (2008) 112,000 employees Projected growth (2008-2018) Faster than average (14% to 19%) Projected job openings (2008-2018) 41,600
  11. 11. Continued again • Insurance Adjusters, Examiners, and Investigators, Licensing Examiners and Inspectors, and Government Property Inspectors and Investigators
  12. 12. High school career academies • I will go to Atholton High school. • The career academy I researched is Automotive Technology Academy. • I picked this career academy because some of my family members have/had this career.
  13. 13. Lincoln Technical Institute • It is located between Baltimore and Washington D.C. on 9325 Snowden River Parkway. • The tuition is based on a number of details about your life like where you live, do you live with someone else, or your mode of transportation.
  14. 14. Continued • Must have a high school diploma or it’s equal. • Also it is required that the student applying must take a campus tour to let the teachers see if they are college material. • This school was built in 1946 as a post-war job skill training source and since then it has helped people achieve their goals in a certain skill trade.
  15. 15. Community service • I helped deliver food to a retirement home two years ago. • Also I donate cans every year. • I did this service because I wanted to help the seniors enjoy the rest of their life's.
