Definitions: Hispanic: A U.S. citizen or resident of Latin American or Spanish descent. Informal economy: The informal sector is economic activity that is neither taxed nor monitored by a government; and is not included in that government's Gross National Product (GNP); as opposed to a formal economy. This includes, but not limited to drug trade, jobs paid under the table, and selling contraband. “You may not want to do this because you like José Rodríguez,” Mr. Medina said, “but this  affects you. Your standard of living is not going to improve, and you’re not going to be in a  stronger position to solve your problems as long as you have all of these people out there  without any rights — without any ability to contribute. Things will only get worse, not  better.” (Immigration and the Unions, New York Times editorial, April 20, 2009) Immigration is a major component for our young, country of hope and dreams of a better life  for people and their families.  All but one ethnic group that resides in the United States, those  belonging to or of decent of Native American tribes, has immigrated here.  The past decade  has seen a sharp rise in Hispanic immigration into the US.  These groups of people, mainly  those of Latin American decent, have been a driving force behind the sharp OPPOSITION of  immigration by the citizens of the US.  There are pro’s and con’s surrounding the issue of  Hispanic immigration and what to do about it.   Many immigrants from Latin America and Central America are illegal.  They have come here  in search of work to feed their families since the relocation of the Maquiladores (US border  factories) that at one point located in Mexico have since been moved to Asia to maximize  profits for corporations.  These people have nothing and nothing to lose.  The US-Mexican
