Why Should We Support Illegal Aliens?

Editor:

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry after reading Amanda Lee Myers' opinion piece, "Illegal immigrants deserve services."

Amanda, have you looked at your paycheck lately? You work hard only to have the government take a large chunk of your money. A portion of this money goes to cover the healthcare, education and incarceration of illegal aliens.

Why do people who have come here illegally deserve any services that were designed to help U.S. citizens down on their luck?

I know that the young people of today will shape the future of tomorrow. I can only sleep well knowing that for every liberal, young "Amanda," there are some young conservatives, like my son, who don't want to work to support lawbreakers.
