Now that a new administration is set to take over the White House, many people are wondering how the results of the 2016 election will affect the state of immigration in America. For decades, lawmakers have argued over what the government should, could, and will do about undocumented immigrants who live on US soil. Some believe that they should be given amnesty, while others think that they should be returned to their native land, and come to America using the channels that are deemed legal.
Those who believe in repatriation insist that undocumented workers have a positive effect on the economy and on their communities. They maintain that these workers help to revitalize neighborhoods, and that they do the jobs that many Americans are unwilling to do. Proponents of this approach to illegal immigration think the best way to tackle the undocumented immigrant status of millions around the nation is by putting those people on a path to citizenship.
