What are the main pros and cons to immigration in North America?

The first answer below is a great one for pro, but a con is: change in culture. We once were Americans but eventually, America might become an almost complete population of Mexican. Now, i have nothing against immigration i just read that in my history book at school. I have no problem with mexicans. JUST AN EXAMPLE.

More Opinions
  • People can be happier living an easier life here.
  • There are the 2 main points of immigration, the US government likes illegal immigrants for cheap labor, but they don't like the immigration itself.
  • Some of the main pros of immigration in the US is the amount of foreigners who come to our country with new technology and new ideas for the future, their technology could be beneficial to us. Some of the main cons of immigration in the US are the increase in population, illiterate and poor immigrants lowering the GDP (gross domestic product) of our country. immigration is also lowering the standard of living in the US.

I don't think that culture should be added to the CONS since the United States has millions of people from all over the world including: Asia, South America, Mexico etc. in other words there is no true culture since there's many people coming from different places who practice different religions and so on.

Well, to my opinion, immigration is good. The pros of immigration is a better society such as, technology, new ideas for the future. Foreigners everywhere should be able to come to America when they want. There are Mexicans, Asians, Hispanics etc living in America. Why can't there be more. It was said that America is the "land of the free, home of the brave" so every one in other countries should be able to come and live a "new" life. Also, immigration can be bad. Alot of people in America can overcrowd it and there would be to many people and not enough resources. Also, some people are terrorist and it can harm the society and the people in it. Those are the pros and cons of immigrations. I hope this answered your question.

Is Mexico part of North America or Central America?

Mexico is within North America, if you use the seven-continent definition (North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia/Oceania, Antarctica). This is demonstrated by the fact that Mexico is located within the North American tectonic plate.

Mexico is however, associated with Central and even South America due to economic and cultural reasons, but this is incorrect, as Mexico's location depends upon geographical/geophysical considerations, not cultural. If you say that Mexico belongs to Central America just because it is near the bottom of North America, or that it shares traits with Guatemala or Panama, you could argue that Greenland is part of Europe just because it is only a few hundred miles from Iceland (which is firmly European) or they are protectorate of Denmark. This is also heavily rooted in discrimination and xenophobia, as many question 'how come a third world country can be grouped together with highly-developed Canada and America?'

Now, on cultural terms, Mexico is part of Latin America as much as Canada and the United States are part of Angloamerica.

Bats
North America

Are there white bats in North America?

White bats are simply albino bats. Albino animals (or people) are animals with a mutation in the enzymes used to produce dark pigment. All animal species occasionally produce albino animals. Therefore, there is bound to exist white bats every once in a while. However, I am not sure if there is a species of bats that is generally white. That seems to be unlikely because nocturnal birds, like owls, would be able to easily spot white bats in the moonlight and they wouldbe more likely to be eaten than black bats which are harder to spot at night.
