Has to stop

To the Editor:

We have a few governors in our country who look out for their citizens by trying to enforce the federal immigration laws and what does Washington do? Takes them to court to stop them.

Now the flip side of the coin, you have Massachusetts that wants illegal immigrants to be able to vote. Our state, Illinois, has open arms for illegal immigrants and wants to give them drivers’ licenses. Washington does nothing about this.

Illegal immigrants are costing taxpayers in excess of $200 billion a year. Illinois is almost at the top of the list for states with high deficits. We do not need to add to it.

The media and activist groups go for sympathy by saying Illegal children were forced/had no choice to come to our country, or illegal immigrants do jobs that no one else will do. Since when does it require a college education to work in the fields or fast-food restaurants? This is what illegal immigrants want. Health care and college educations, and they protest for these benefits.

Can you afford heath care for your family, and are you able to pay for a college education for your children? A lot of Americans cannot.

This is wrong and has to stop.
