ABSTRACT
The article presents an argument against granting illegal immigrants in the U.S. amnesty and legal status. It is suggested that a majority of U.S. citizens believe illegal immigration has negative implications for the country as its costs outweigh any possible positive effect. A background of legal and illegal immigration in the country is presented, as well as the plans of the U.S. government to address illegal migration and the public reaction to such plans.
