A Nation of Immigrants | Speech | 10 i karakter

Hello, all my fellow students. It is a real pleasure to be speaking Infront of all of you today. As some of you may know, my name is Sebastian Kjær Hansen, and I study American culture and history at Boston University.

Today I will be speaking about the debate about Immigrants in the United States. I believe it is a really interesting subject, which really divide the nation in different groups, based on their opinion.

Before we start, I would just like to quickly get your opinion on this subject, both before and after my speech.

So, would all the people who believes that immigrants shouldn’t get into the US raise their hands? Thank you.

I believe an interesting point, when looking at immigrants in the US, is actually the number of immigrants, that we have.

In a video produced by CNBC explaining about immigrants, and how they impact the economy, they mention that in the US, their lives around 50 million immigrants That is more than any other nation.

But is that even a bad thing? Not if you ask reporter Uptin Saiidi “For every one percent increase in a country’s migrant population

it adds on an extra two percent GDP per capita in the long term” That is really good, but the problem comes with the ones that doesn’t go to work, or who ends up being criminal.

They end up becoming a burden for the nation, and they can eventually cost both not only money, but also lives of innocent people.

The grow in GDP per capita, can come in two ways. The first one is that the productivity per worker, and the other is that it increases the percentage of working-age, meaning that people will work longer.

As mentioned, the problem doesn’t exist with the people who decides to come to the US and work. They are helping the US economic a lot, and it is shown that immigrants can be aviable to take some jobs, that the normal US citizens do not want to take.
