关于移民的优秀英语作文

 

As Arizona's controversial immigration law was passed on April 27 2010,a new round of debate on immigration was aroused in the past months.With the development of globalization,immigration has become a concept which is widely discussed and disputed.As an international exchange student,I would like to give my own opinion about the issue.
Immigration has been taking place for quite a long time in the history,but the number of people who immigrate increased rapidly in the recent decades.It brings some problems to the destination,however,it benefits more.
First,immigrants make contribution to the country's economic growth.Many immigrants are manual labour workers in the construction industries,catering and domestic services,They can take the job that most citizens in the host country do not want to.Besides,as the world is in an economic recession,many companies want to keep down labour costs,the immigrants can be uesd as cheap labour.In addition,some immigrants are highly skilled in some special fields.But their wages are not so high as the technicians in the host country.So they contribute to a lower price and additional profits for the company.Nowadays,many countries ar faced with a shortage of labour,thus the immigrants can be a significant source of workers.
Second,immigration brings an exchange of culture.It includes knowledge,values and experience's exchange and gives an opportunity for people from different backgrounds to get together and share their opinions with each other.Because of technological changes,latest technology is required for a continuous development and research.Therefore,people have to keep to with the whole world's innovations.The best way of acquiring the up-to-date information is communicating with people from other countries frequently.The immigrants are of great help between the two countries' exchange.What more valuable is,if a company is comprised of people with different backgrounds and experiences,more unconventional and creative ideas are aroused,which can provide the company with a competitive edge in the industry.For example,when you are dealing with consumers from another country,you will encounter a variety of problems.When you have a group of employees from different regions of the world,you can have a better understanding of how other countries do business and how should you talk with them.Diversity in the staff can also attract more potential employees all over the world----when they see a company that accepts employees from a variety of cultural backgrounds,they might be more likely to be a part of it.For these reasons,the diversity culture i workplace is becoming more and more prevalent.
Last,immigration does not gain more financial burden to the host country,however,it helps to improve its economy.Most of the immigrants come to another country are between the age of 20 and 35.They work hard to warn more money.Thus,immigrants become an extra source of tax income.Furthermore,the government of the host country also receive additional revenue from the application fees and auctions for the right of permanent residence.
 
Of course,immigration also brings some problems to the host country.For example,overcrowding is a serious problem which brought by immigrants.Many citizens complain about the traffic jams and crowd shopping malls;There also seem to be a communication gap between the natives and immigrants;Critics claim that immigrants take on jobs which should be given to the original natives;Some people relate the increased rate of crime to immigrants.
Indeed,they are tough problems.But they can be solved by our effort:The government can pay more attention to the construction of public transportation;More competitors can incentive workers to work more efficiently;The diverse opinions means more creativity;The natives also account for a substantial proportion of the increased criminals,so the police should to be responsible for the problem.
In America,the immigration system is badly broken.In the past several decades,too many people tried to enter the country illegally.No wonder Arizona's governors signed such a strict immigration law.But eliminating illegal immigration can not be the only objective of reform.Setting up a rational immigration system is more crucial to ensuring American future development.
Many aspects of the current system can be improved.One of them is building up a reasonable system for granting entrance to lower-skilled workers.For the illegal immigrants,they should be required to background inspections,and if they broke the law,they should be fine.However,do not send them back immediately,which may lead to disturbances.
Throughout the history,immigrants have contributed to making many countries more thriving and vigorous.I believe that through a well-designed system and the cooperation between countries ,the immigrants would have a bright future.
