Immigration is one of the most controversial topics. Indeed, the United States and particularly the State of Arizona witnessed an explosive population growth owing to which immigration became the subject of a rancorous debate and to illustrate this fact, we can mention that 16.8 percent of the total population increase between 2000 and 2006 in Arizona was directly attributable to immigrants . The population of Arizona represents about 6,2 million people .The immigrants who sometimes live in the shadows, represent 14 percent of the labor force in Arizona who work in specific sectors like the low-skill service jobs, agriculture, manufacturing, construction, restaurants, leisure etc.
[...] In addition, the immigration's opponents consider that illegal immigrants, which represent an attractive workforce, are only an economic benefit to unscrupulous businesses who hire them for cheap wages and to maximize their profits. Consequently, the employers have an undeniable and a competitive advantage over honest businesses which respect the law and pay a wage. In other words, it's necessary to underline that there is an unfair competitition between employers who respect the law and the ones who hire illegal immigrant. [...]

Indeed, the immigrants contribute to Arizona's economy both as consumers and as workers because they bring considerable spending power and significant implications in a number of areas. [...]

[...] It seems wise to strike a balance between the interests of the employers and the rights of the immigrants in order to understand the subtilies of the immigration. As far as one can tell, the economic interests of employers and rights of migrants aren't necessarily in opposition. Nevertheless, we can say that it's the economic interests of employers and the rights of legal residents that are in conflict.
