First, newly-arrived immigrants typically have limited linguistic capabilities. An immigrant usually comes from a country whose native language is different from that of the country that he or she has emigrated to. Because of this, laws that aim to protect them, even if they were explained in plain words, may still be impossible for immigrants to understand.

With the complexity of some governmental regulatory systems in many countries, this exposes a lot of newly arrived immigrants to a lot of potential exploiters. It is not uncommon for them to be given wages that are below par, or work conditions that the rest of population will find utterly repulsive. This is very common among Chinese and Vietnamese immigrants in America who went there on their own.

Second, many immigrants enter a country illegally, thus curtailing the host government’s ability to extend its protection to them. These immigrants do not even attempt to defend their universal rights for fear of deportation. This is very common among illegal Mexican immigrants that pass through the US-Mexico border.

To make matters worse, many individuals capitalize on this fear. They hire these illegal immigrants to work in sweatshops and other places where labor laws are blatantly violated by employers themselves. Coupled with the first issue, many illegal immigrants live and die in the same sorry state because they have no means to learn about how to get out of their situation.

Lastly, it is not unusual for immigrants to enter a country with no feasible means of going back to where they came from. After all, people usually leave their homeland in search of economic opportunities. In short, they are living on their last few cents and the last thing that they want is to be fired.

Sadly, it not uncommon for an immigrant to find working conditions which are substandard compared to the rest of the population, and yet still surpass their working conditions in their home country. For example, some developing countries have wage rates that are less than a fourth of some developing countries, so that an immigrant will even be happy if they are given just half of what they should get.

The topic of Immigration – including Illegal Immigrants, Refugees or Migrants – provokes an incredibly strong reaction from many different people. With Donald Trumps’ rapid rise in American politics and his controversial statements about Illegal Immigrants – many people are letting their ideology trump facts, reason and evidence. This presentation is the first in a series which looks to dispel the myths about Immigrants – and aims to separate the facts from the fiction with strict data analysis.

Why are people so concerned about Immigration in the United States of America? Who is coming into the United States both legally and illegally – and how has it changed over time? Are Illegal Immigrants able to vote? How do Immigrants impact electoral politics? Do Immigrants favor big government or smaller government? How do their political positions change over time – are Immigrants friends of freedom?
