Illegal Immigrants In The U.S.

Dear Editor,

While President Obama was discussing health care, he said that Medicaid and Medicare will not have enough funding to continue on for much longer, and that the government will help businesses that don't have health care for their employees. Well, since many businesses hire illegal immigrants, who would really be benefiting from the health care? Not American citizens. The government is avoiding dealing with the real issue. Not only are illegal immigrants affecting health care, the standard of education is so low because immigrant parents don't want to learn English, which then causes job test standards to be lowered, but only for some.

I know that no American can go to France, England, Italy, Sweden, Japan, Cuba or any other country and stay and get to lower that country's high standard of education, work or living. These liberal, passive ways have been the downfall of the U.S. Please call, write, fax or e-mail our elected officials and our president— say no to government controlled health care, say no to illegals getting public assistance and food stamps and Medicaid, say no to illegals getting SSI or SSD under illegal names using past dead people's social security numbers, make INS and immigration step up on surprise visits on businesses harboring illegals, make test standards the same for all races, lower immigration quotas into the U.S. and step up deportation.
