Letters to the Editor

View complete scope of aid to illegal residents

I can agree with part of the Jan. 12 letter, "Take long-term view on immigrant children." But I cannot agree that people here illegally have the same right to help as do people who enter this country legally and follow the legal way to receive citizenship.

I think a little research is needed by the writer as to the complete scope of help the whole illegal family receives from the government. I have a problem with help to those who are not here legally.
