Many Americans believe that this country has too many immigrants, and they are in favor of broad deportation efforts. What these people may not realize, however, is that deportation has many harmful effects on those who are forced to leave the United States, as well as the families they often leave behind.
Contrary to popular belief, immigrants do not take jobs away from Americans. On the contrary, they are actually helpful. They work the jobs that most Americans do not want. They work as truck drivers, agricultural workers, construction workers, personal aides, housekeepers, cooks, butchers, hotel workers, and taxi drivers.
The agricultural industry, especially, relies on foreign-born workers. These workers are willing to perform back-breaking labor and work long days for low pay. In fact, more than 25% of farm workers in the United States are illegal immigrants.
If you or a family member is facing deportation, an Ottawa County immigration lawyer can defend your case and keep your family intact.
Deportation has a detrimental effect on families and their communities. It does not focus on keeping families intact. Nearly 6 million children currently in the United States have a caregiver who is in the country illegally. When a person is deported, his or her financial situation suffers. Many see family ties severed. Because of the stigma involved, many have limited contact with family members.
The children and other family members left behind in the United States suffer, as well. Children are separated from their parents, leading to psychological detriment. Other family members have to take on multiple jobs to make ends meet. Older children may have to drop out of school to work and care for younger children.
Children also develop issues eating and sleeping. They feel anxious and angry. They tend to mistrust people and refuse to participate in social and community events. They withdraw from society. Even if the family is eventually reunited, these effects can linger.
Deportation affects jobs. Companies lose out on quality workers. In order to hire comparable workers, they are forced to increase wages. They may have to shut down operations entirely. Food growers may have to switch to foods that require less maintenance, such as nuts, leaving Americans with inadequate amounts of U.S.-grown fruits and vegetables. Food prices increase. Deportation affects the entire country to some degree.
The consequences of deportation can be fatal in some cases. Many foreigners who are forced to return to their home countries face persecution. They are beaten and tortured. Some are raped and murdered.
Deportation causes families to break up and people to lose jobs. It also comes with serious psychological effects that can impact a person for the rest of his or her life.
Many foreigners face inhumane conditions in their home countries. Many are raped, tortured, and even killed.

Great work from Brittni Rivera, extremely professional. I highly recommend to go with them especially for U visa cases.
Both Jake, who has since relocated, and Lauren (current) are a saving grace to those who they’ve helped. Lauren, who I am working with currently, cannot be more attentive, understanding, and humble in the work and reassurance she gives you. She never makes you feel like you are any less due to your circumstance, she speaks to you more humanely and with compassion more than even a friend or family may. If you’re in the market for an attorney that cares, does her best to accommodate your circumstance and limitations while working your case, I can not recommend enough Lauren.…
Very intelligent, very much helpful, and always answer any question in your mind. Always immediate replies to my questions. Very much trustful. Thank u very much.
Simply put, I shouldn't be here. I had a really complex immigration case and all the firms that we consulted with told us that I virtually had no chance of staying here in the United States for my son. All except Kriezelman Burton.
