Illinois Obviously, we can tell that if there is an increase in population there will also be a rise in waste generation and pollution. Over the years, because of immigration, there will be a new need for landfill sites, because of the rise in waste disposal. Illinois has many lakes and rivers flowing through it, which means that even though there are lots of immigrants, this will not affect water consumption. According to the Illinois Department of Corrections, there has been a serious increase in prisoners over recent years. Now there are more than 35,500 people in state prisons, of which over 2,000 prisoners are immigrants. This shows that Illinois is suffering a higher crime rate. Illinois is now the 6th largest state in the Nation however it has not grown much for some decades. Its 1960 population was just over ten million, compared to 11.4 million in 1990. Migration out of Illinois to other states has been increasing in recent years, which means that there is a low growth rate. Native-born Illinoisans are migrating out of the state, while different cultures are immigrating in. This means that over time there are lots of different cultures living in Illinois. According to the Chicago-based Latino Institute, immigrants earn 20% less than native-born Illinoisans, and as there are less native-born Illinoisans in the state than before, this could mean that the state could suffer as it is getting less income from wages. Also, according to the same study, Illinois population will rise from 11 million to 14 or 15 million. This means that the state will have to build at least 400 more schools to fit in the children that are immigrating.

Now you can make any subject more engaging and memorable
