Immigration reform is gaining more nationwide attention, with all the new laws coming out of Arizona and other border states. Many blame undocumented workers for the growing crime rate, high unemployment rate, and the poor economy. Illegal immigration is an area of interest to me because it affects all US citizens equally, since we fund the illegal immigrants that can not afford the basic necessities of life such as; food, clothing, and shelter. My target audience is any one who is interested in learning what the current laws on immigration are, and what the future will hold.
In order to prevent further immigrants from entering the country illegally, the police should be able to stop anyone and everyone whom they may believe to be an illegal immigrant, even if that could be perceived as profiling.
