Immigration Myths BUSTED Part #1
Most Immigrants Are “Here Illegally”
In speaking with people about immigration every day, we hear so much fact mixed with fiction that we thought we’d post some of the most common immigration myths with a little context to help share better information about the subject. With so much controversy around the issue of undocumented immigrants, it’s very easy to overlook the fact that most of the foreign born folks living in the US have indeed followed the rules and do have lawful permission to be here.
For example, of the more than 31+ million foreign born people living in the United States in 2010, about 21 million were either already citizens or legal residents. For those who did not have proper authorization to be here, about 45 percent entered the country legally and then let their papers expire. Our immigration system is broken and as legislation and the government move slowly to repair and renew the systems necessary to deal with immigration in a meaningful way, misconceptions, assumptions, and generalizations will continue. As the 2016 elections draw near, immigration remains one of the most heated debates for both Republicans and Democrats.
Each year more than 100 million immigration forms are completed and filed with the United States government. Those forms generate tens of billions of dollars in recurring federal revenue. Keep in mind, this does not include any legal fees, simply the government required filing fees charged by the USCIS. With that much paperwork flowing in and out of servicing centers, many of those forms are completed incorrectly causing delays, costly re-filing fees, or worse. Things can only get better from here.
