A List Of Good Persuasive Essay Topics About Immigration


Immigration is a hot topic in magazines, news and the media at the moment, particularly because many elections are taking place around this time. Policies regarding foreigners moving and residing abroad is, it seems, a big issue, and one that there is plenty of scopes to write about. Below are just some of the best persuasive topics for essays on immigration.

  • Immigration is a help, rather than a hindrance, to national economy
  • A lot of the issues that politicians raise when discussing foreigners moving to the country are how it affects the national budget and economy. Do foreigners really come and steal all the jobs just to earn money to send back home? Or do they actually contribute a net amount to the economy (or, perhaps, even more)? Persuade your reader either way!

  • Immigration improves national attitudes towards foreigners and foreign cultures
  • Does the increase in foreigners, bringing with them their own cultures, beliefs and traditions, increase awareness and tolerance of foreign cultures? In Britain, for example, the increase in Muslims moving to the country has meant an increase in the amount of effort that goes into teaching about Islam in schools. Does this help tolerance of foreigners?

  • When does an immigrant become a citizen?
  • Many countries have officially recognised exams and tests that allow a foreigner to become a citizen of the country they reside in. Some of these tests are harder than others, and some people are not eligible to apply for them or never manage to undertake them. But what makes someone a citizen? If not, what does?

  • Should border control be increased?
  • People who are legitimately trying to enter the country to find work and improve their lives make the majority of foreigners moving abroad for good, but there are also a very small minority of people who seek to take advantage of things such as the welfare state of Britain or the other developed countries, for instance, or who have even more sinister intentions. For this reason, we might think that it is best to increase the money we spend border control so that we can better separate those who want to do harm to the country from those who will contribute fairly to the country.

These are just a few of the very many essays on immigration that will stimulate thought and improve not only your understanding of this hot topic, but also the understanding of your readers.
