Undocumented immigrants should be allowed to stay in this country and become citizens. They came here for a better life and shouldn't be rejected. A lot of them are willing to take jobs that Americans refuse to take, and they also pay taxes.

I believe if this country can give undocumented immigrants a chance to become citizens, they would help contribute to the country. Some of the undocumented immigrants are raising their families here and they should be considered United States citizens. They should be recognized for the children they are raising and the jobs they are willing to do.
