Illegal Immigration

Illegal immigration is the act of an individual moving or settling in another country without obtaining permission from that country to do so.  The illegal immigrant may either intend to stay permanently or temporarily.

Most often, immigrants settle illegally in another country because of persecution or lack of opportunity in their home country and they do not have the resources or otherwise cannot obtain permission to immigrate legally.  In some cases the illegal immigrant is a convicted felon or other undesirable who would be unable to obtain permission to legally immigrate.

Some illegal immigrants originally were granted a temporary visa to visit or work in another country but have overstayed the expiration date of their visa and are now an illegal alien.  Some of the hijackers on the ill fated 9/11 flights originally entered the U.S. on legal visas that eventually expired.

The United States has a problem with hundreds of thousands (some say millions) of illegal immigrants coming in from Mexico and other Latin American countries because of the huge disparity in economic conditions between the U.S. and those countries.  Adding to the problem is the reality that undocumented workers are willing to work for wages that would be considered "too low" by most American workers.  Some employers find this availability of cheap labor to compelling to turn it away and thus provide employment to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens.

To further the problem, the U.S. government seems unable or unwilling to hold employers accountable for knowingly hiring these undocumented workers.  While the Border Patrol attempts to stem the tide of illegals crossing the the thousands of miles of land and sea borders, government policies continue to provide incentives for illegal immigration.
