I write to talk about illegal immigrants and the benefits they receive. In my opinion. they should not be receiving all that they are, just for being in the United States. Our government should not be allowed to just give away money to people who have not earned the right to have it. Or to be in the U.S for that matter.
One of many programs that some illegal immigrants receive is in-state tuition. This should not even be an option if they are not of legal citizenship.
Overall, I think that our government needs to look for these people, find the ones who have not gained citizenship and make them apply. And if they refuse, then deportation should be automatic with no chance of getting back.
Our government cannot keep pouring out money when half of America is suffering. We need to focus on our people before that of illegal immigrants. And our government needs to push that policy and get it going. If we keep this up, we are going to lose a lot as a country.
Never miss a local story.
