    Legal immigrants receive a medical examination to prevent those with disease from infecting American citizens. Illegal aliens entering the country without this examination pose a risk to the health of Americans. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/yellowb...rants-refugees

    Legal immigrants undergo criminal background checks. Illegal immigrants pose a criminal risk to American citizens because they do not undergo a background check. https://www.uscis.gov/policymanual/H...-Chapter2.html

    Low-skilled American workers must compete for jobs against an estimated 8 million illegal immigrants in the US workforce. This causes unnecessary high unemployment for Americans, especially for African-American workers who are unskilled. https://cis.org/Testimony/Illegal-Im...-Black-Workers

    Those three are just the tip of the support iceberg.

    And although I didn't specify "the border with Mexico" as the area of illegal entry we should secure, here is some data: https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/stats/sw-border-migration
