In a recent article written on the foreign immigration occuring in the United States, Virginia shows a different approach has been taken to the problem. In an area where there was a lagre percent of Latino workers (some legal and some illegal) the immigrants were causing many problems with the social aspects of the community. In the town of Herndon Virginia the mayor and other officials looked at this as an economic opportunity rather than a burden. The mayor looked at the problems some of the Latinos were having (being homeless, poor, not speaking English, not finding jobs) and set up a way for these problems to be overcome. He made available a seperate section of housing options and put forth job oppurtunities for the Latinos to have. In addition, English classes were given to the Latinos so that they could interact with the rest of the workforce in Virgina. As a result, the Latinos were able to sufficiently help the economy by working and making wages rather than standing on a street corner hoping to find work. I think it is a factual statement to say that there will always be immigrants (both legal and illegal) present in America trying to find work. Instead of complaining about them and the poverty lives some of them live it would make more sense to help them to adapt to the American lifestyle. Sure, most of these immigrants will find work with homebuilders and other household jobs because of their low educational background but they can still prove to be an economic plus to us as a society rather than a burden.
