In America, there is no difference between undocumented immigrants and illegal aliens. For our state and federal governments to give illegals who have broken our laws benefits and amnesty is an outrage.

Immigrants who have come from other countries for better lives have gone through the proper steps to become citizens. Some of the illegals have come to America because they know that our laws are not enforced.

If our politicians truly cared about our country, they would not be giving benefits to illegals, about whom we do not know anything. I would think once about granting them citizenship.

America can’t have open borders. We cannot have people coming in without knowing whether they have a right to be here. Paperwork needs to be checked at the borders.

If the government does anything this year regarding immigration, it should be this: Enforce our existing laws first. Do not give in to politicians who don’t care about our Constitution or our laws.
