California should cut off jobs, social services, driving privileges, college educations and tax refunds to illegal immigrants, a former Reagan Administration official said Wednesday. "Illegal aliens cost California taxpayers millions of dollars," said Alan Nelson, a federal Immigration and Naturalization Service commissioner from 1982 to 1989. "They seriously hurt all areas of California society--employment, welfare, health, crime, housing and our basic values," Nelson said.

Anticipating the findings of a General Accounting Office report on employer sanctions, the Federation for American Immigration Reform issued a report Tuesday calling for continuing penalties against employers who hire illegal immigrants and for the creation of a worker identification system.

A poll of 800 California voters shows widespread support for stricter measures to curb illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexican border, a group that commissioned the survey said today. Sixty-nine percent of Californians surveyed said they favored strict limits on the number of legal immigrants. The poll found that 60% supported a government plan to build a four-mile drainage ditch along the border in San Diego County to thwart Mexican motorists who speed across the desert to enter the country illegally.
