ABSTRACT
The article opines that illegal immigrants and their children in the U.S. should receive social services. One aspect of the debate related to immigration that is largely ignored is the cultural impact of immigration on the American society. Undocumented immigrants are a growing percentage of the U.S. population, numbering nearly eleven million nationwide. Some Americans argue that undocumented immigrants should be denied all such services because they do not pay federal taxes; they are "illegal" citizens and a drain on government services and the economy. Such reasoning will not stop unauthorized immigration to the United States.
