Immigrant advocate Juan Garcia feared Carcieri's proposals would drive a vulnerable community underground. He said illegal immigrants who are victims of crime will fear approaching police, and that children could suffer if parents lose their jobs.
Under his order, state police will enter an agreement with federal immigration authorities permitting them access to specialized immigration databases. That information would allow police to identify and detain immigration violators.

It is not a secret that Americans believe that immigrants are taking over their job opportunities, and in the following Family Guy episode we see how Peter starts an anti-immigration group, but immediately changes his views after discovering he was born in Mexico. Unable to prove his American citizenship, he is labeled as an illegal immigrant and forced to work as a laborer.

From what we have seen in the past a lot of the maintains people that clean in restaurants, hotels and in many other places, are jobs that have been given to immigrants since Americans don’t want them. Some employers don’t care if the person who is cleaning their kitchen or toilets at their restaurant is an illegal or legal employee. Many employers would just rather hire illegal immigrants for cheap labor and since they work "under the table" it will be less paper work for them as well. So why now do Americans want to take those opportunities away from these immigrants?

Hear they have the opportunity to provide for their family back at home. Some migrate to the U.S. to give their kids a better education, and break the cycle of life style that has haunted them from generations to generations. Overall many just come hear to escape the economy and the poverty of their country.
