1 In the article “Why the illegals must go,” William Gheen argues that illegal immigrants need to leave America. He has several reasons to back his claim and with grounds and warrants to back some of the reasons. However, his argument comes with a lot of pressure from his forceful words and errors from his logical fallacies. His claim is that illegal immigrants need to get out of America and go back to where they came from. He uses several reasons to back his claim. One of his first reasons is that illegal immigrant laws are not being followed by everyone. This causes the Americans to be deprived of “their votes, their voice, and a functioning Republic for which our flag stands” (Gheen 1). America was built with a government that allows us to vote on representatives who help shape the laws in our country. If there are certain business people who are not following the immigration laws, then that puts less value on the law and more importantly less value on our vote that help get that law into place. The ground for this reason is the fact that superior, big businesses in the United States don’t get negatively affected by immigrants. They actually have a positive affect for the numerous immigrants as “their profits continue to rise” with the increasing number in the population (1). With all the profit being made, there is no incentive to follow the immigration laws. The warrant for this is that laws are being under enforced or seen as irrelevant. The backing for this warrant is how “the will of the American public, the existing laws, the US Constitution, and the borders of our great nation are perceived as marked hindrances to the global elite” (1). Our American principles of being self-governed are falling through the cracks.
