  1. State the paper’s claim.
    State the focus of each body paragraph.
    List the counterclaims.
    State the student’s concluding point.

    1. Immigration is good for America: immigrants help the economy and help politically.

    b. Immigrants create more jobs in the US
    c. Immigrants help businesses expand, create more jobs, and give better wages.
    3. Some argue that only skilled immigrants help the economy and the businesses. The author then brings examples from other countries’ dependency on immigration as well. Also, there is the argument that immigrants come from countries where crime and violence is the way of life, so they are all like that. The author changes that generalization, and also discusses how there is a myth that immigrants are more likely to be inmates than American citizens.
    4. Despite all of those claims, that the author eventually refutes, immigration does better the American economy, does not raise crime rates, but the President continues to push for immigration decline. The author then discusses what his/her opinion is on “the wall” and demands a change.
