Answer

You can find books, eBooks, and articles about this topic through the library.

For books and eBooks, follow the link below to our library catalog, WorldCat.  A basic search for illegal immigration will retrieve several relevant books.

If you would rather just search for eBooks, you could follow the link below to our EBSCO eBook collection and do a similar search.  The main advantage of searching this way is that you can search the entire text of each book, which could make more specific searches (like "illegal immigration advantages disadvantages") more useful.

For articles, follow the link below to our list of databases for hot topics and controversial issues.  Facts on File: Issues and Controversies and Gale: Opposing Viewpoints are both good places to find overviews of topics such as this. 

For more detailed articles, the EBSCO databases (particularly Academic Search Complete and MasterFile Premier) are the best sources.  In EBSCO, you can start with a basic search for illegal immigration and then use the options on the left of the screen (full-text, source type, publication date, subject: thesaurus term) to narrow the search down to a smaller and more manageable group of results.  You also could try more specific searches (ex. illegal immigration advantages disadvantages) or try searching for relevant subject headings through the link at the top left of the screen.
