Journal Title: Immigration and Social Policy: New Interest in an Old Issue The US population is rising faster than most western nations, which are trying to stabilize their population and estimate declines over the coming decades. The Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 opened application process for Africans Asians and South Americans with the unintended effect of adding the number of unskilled immigrants coming into the country (Donovan, 2005, pp. 35-36; Press, 2006). The increased level of immigrants was the result of the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 which legalized more than a million undocumented immigrants. This legislation, however, tried to tighten law enforcement methods for following waves of illegal workers. Various attempts have been made to reform immigration laws which included efforts to tighten the US -Mexico border, amnesty and criminal sanctions for undocumented immigrants. Immigrants from countries that are political enemies to the US are regarded as refugees. The article has some advantages that I identified. Immigrants have higher entrepreneurial skills in startup businesses than natives and also possess a better tolerance for challenging industrial jobs. They also take jobs that need a lot of training longer than natives. About 5 percent of the workforce comprises of immigrants, who hold more than a quarter of the jobs in physically demanding and dangerous sectors such as cleaning and construction. Immigrants also contribute economically and socially by creating new jobs in urban centers that would otherwise be deteriorated. Undocumented immigrants
