The demand that people have to live in the United States far out weighs the amount of people the U.S. allows to immigrate legally, thus leading to a high illegal immigration rate.
In 2009, there were 1.1 million people that legally immigrated to the United States and became permanent residents, according to statistics from the Department of Homeland Security. Also in 2009, nearly 744,000 people became naturalized citizens. Nearly 11 million people are illegal immigrants in the country.
Temporary visas are also a popular way that people come to the United States. Nearly 163 million people entered the U.S. this way last year, with the largest amount of people coming from Britain, Mexico and Japan.

On June 22, Mexico asked the federal courts of Arizona to rethink their immigration law and deem it unconstitutional. Mexico is arguing that the new law will take away rights from the citizens of the state.
Lawyers for Mexico filed five lawsuits against Arizona’s new law, which will take place June 29. The new law generally requires law enforcement who are investigating a crime or other incident if their is reasonable suspicion, the law enforcement can ask to see if the person is in the country legally.
Mexico believes that the law will lead to racial profiling and will put a dent in trade and tourism. It will be the decision of a U.S. District Court judge whether or not this brief and other briefs from various organizations will be accepted.

A New Mexico GOP congressional nominee suggested on a radio show that securing the border with landmines would be an effective way to fix illegal immigration. He also said that there needs to be barb wire surrounding the United States with signs that inform people where check points are.
He announced this idea before he won the primary on June 1. He added that there could be signs in 23 different languages if needed. His thoughts spur from his idea that the current border situation facilitates easy access for terrorists to enter the U.S. The candidate’s platform on immigration includes changing the 14th Amendment so that it no longer guarantees citizenship to anyone born on U.S. soil.
