Illegal immigrants are simply defined as a person who has moved across borders of foreign nationals in the country in a manner that contradicts on the immigration laws of the country to which they have moved (Kennedy 12). It mostly occurs in an upward fashion where the immigrant is from a poor country to a richer country.
Illegal immigrants should not receive social services in their host country. The argument is quite straight forward, allowing illegal immigrants access to social protection only serves to drain on the protection deserving citizens, and legal immigrants are entitled to.

The government has to strive to provide for both the legal citizens, as well as the undocumented immigrants, , consequently; there is a strain in resources and at the end of the day it is a tax payer that is left to bear this extra burden to cater for the needs of these immigrants (Hjarno 27) . For example, it has been argued before that the country should protect its workers and ensure their welfare, in the health sector, healthcare providers are not allowed to turn down a patient at the emergency room. Problems arise when the immigrants are unable to cater for their medical bills probably, as a result, of them not having medical insurance. In situations like this, the government has had to absorb the cost. Consequently, prices for medical care will go up as a hospital aim at recovery of incurred losses; burden legitimate citizens have to carry.

[...] Another problem is the issue of illegal immigrants having access to education. A considerable percentage of school age children in schools is made up of illegal immigrants. The children will require in depth coaching in languages alone let the increased expenses cater for their education alone (Kennedy 41). These expenses would have otherwise been channeled to other development programs that would have been targeted at making a better learning environment for the children by refurbishing classrooms or even giving scholarships to deserving children who cannot afford education.
