Our fifth grade classes (Springs School) have been discussing why illegal immigrants should stay in North America. I (Ashley Martens) think they should stay because they left their countries and homes for a better life and better opportunities, so why should they have to go back to their countries where they started? Even if they're illegal, it's not their fault they can't afford the paperwork and green card.
I (Gabby Green) agree and disagree with Ashley. I don't agree because they should not have come illegally. But I agree because they might have lived in a terrible neighborhood, where every house that they lived in either kept getting broken into and robbed, or shot up. I also agree that they want a better life. We both came to a conclusion that if they are already here they should stay.
