Hi, I need a reply for my class discussion forum. I chose this student article. please explain if you are agree with her or not and why. 100 words is enough. Katherine Reyes Module 7 Pretend that you are an attorney and that you are discussing the case of undocumented immigrants in the Supreme Court of the United States. What would be your central arguments? If I were an attorney in the Supreme Court of the United States discussing the case of undocumented immigrants my central arguments would include their contribution and potential contributions to this country. I would also include how despite these vastly significant contributions people must live in fear of being affected by deportation. “Around four-in-ten Latinos (39%) in U.S. worry that they or someone close to them could be deported…that concern is even higher among immigrants” (Moslimani 2022). 51% of immigrant Latinos in the United States worry they or someone they know could be deported. This foreign-born population is composed of citizens, green card holders, and those with no green card. 34% of foreign-born citizens worry they will be directly or indirectly affected by deportation, 53% of green card holders share this worry, as do 79% of those with no green card. Its unacceptable that immigrants face the worry of deportation when “more than eleven million undocumented immigrants live and work in the United States” (Johnson 371). There is the stereotype and misconception that immigrants come into the United States to steal jobs and/or live off the government, but these ideas come from ignorance not fact. The facts prove the opposite is true as immigrants make positive contributions to the nation and if they were provided citizenship there would actually be a boost in the United States economy. “Putting undocumented immigrants on a pathway to citizenship would increase U.S. GDP by up to $1.7 trillion over the next decade, raise wages for all Americans, and create hundreds of thousands of new jobs, advancing the country’s economic recovery” (Peri and Zaiour 2021).
