The article deals with issues concerning a proposed bill in the U.S. Congress that would crack down on people living in the country illegally. Many U.S. lawmakers say that illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the U.S. because they are a necessary part of the U.S. work force. Other lawmakers argue that illegal immigrants are lawbreakers who are taking jobs away from legal citizens--and driving down wages in the country. They claim that illegal immigrants hurt the country's economy.
