It has come to my attention, as an eighth-grader, that even with new laws about to be passed, there have been a lot more illegal immigrants coming to Arizona.
My mom has told me about our hospitals seeing a major increase in illegals having their babies here and not paying for it and they don't even live here.
Another thing that came as a surprise to me was to learn that these illegal immigrants' kids come and are enrolled in our school for free, while many legal hardworking citizens have to spend their earnings from their jobs so we can go to school.
To me, something should be done about this. Thanks for your time.
