Does the United States have a lot of job opportunities?

There are numerous reasons for employment-based immigration, but one of the biggest is simply that the United States is considered to be a country with a lot of opportunity. There are job openings and career opportunities here that people cannot find in their home countries. They immigrate to create a better life for themselves and their families, and they seek out new career paths that they have always wanted to follow.

3 benefits of immigration

Some Americans fear immigrants entering the country due to beliefs largely based on misinformation. This fear is nothing new. It was even present during colonial times, although the U.S. was a young nation born from immigrants. The natural human traits of misunderstanding and prejudice contribute to common myths about immigration being dangerous to the country.

How can a U.S. citizen be detained by immigration officials?

It might seem impossible that U.S. citizens, including people born in this country, could be detained by agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or Customs and Border Protection (CBP). However, it's happened at airports and border crossings in the U.S. and even aboard a domestic flight.

Can immigrants post bail when they're in a detention center?

Citizens who get arrested in the United States can often post bail in order to get out of jail. They then have to return for a court date, but they can spend the time waiting at home, rather than behind bars. This is a very common practice for most non-violent crimes.

Does the U.S. still lead the world in refugee resettlement?

For decades, the United States has led the world in refugee resettlement. In 2016, for instance, a total of 97,000 refugees arrived in America from numerous countries. These refugees were often escaping persecution, war, famine and other life-threatening issues in their countries of origin.
