Stop Rewarding Those Who Are Here Illegally

February 16, 2003

Re "College Aid Opens Doors," Jan. 25: Why didn't you just title this op-ed piece "We Favor Even More Money For Illegal Aliens," since that's what you're really asking for? Your logic seems to be that because so many illegals are poor, the taxpayers of California (those who don't work "off the books," which is also illegal) should subsidize them even more than we already do. Apparently the editorial board of The Times thinks that free K-12 education, medical and social services are not enough, and that now we owe them a free college education as well! Anyone who is in this country illegally should be deported, not rewarded. Subsidizing illegal activity will only encourage more of the same.
