Not all illegal immigrants commit crime, but a large percentage does. Immigration Control claims that last year that 177,960 deported immigrants were convicted criminals. Hispanic gangs are a very common plight is south western American cities, and it results in a lot of crime. In addition drugs are commonly peddled across the border, which ultimately catalysts to crime. A force that is a crime multiplier in America is sanctuary cities, which are Immigrant safe zones. Many of these cities offer criminal protection to Immigrants, and this protection is abused in some cases.
Degradation of Patriotism
The most detrimental impact of illegal immigration is the damage to patriotism. Our society is undergoing radical changes towards political correctness, which require adaptations to these aliens. Some advocate mixing languages, sacrificing our own culture, and making people feel guilty for being American. Being American is a massive gift, and every person that holds the title should feel blessed, and empowered to better the world. By accepting these people, we lose the desire to fix the fundamental causes of immigration.
