En­force im­mi­gra­tion laws

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: July 15 ar­ti­cle “List of pur­ported il­le­gal im­mi­grants sows fears, anx­i­ety.”

Who­ever com­posed the list of il­le­gal im­mi­grants re­ceiv­ing tax­payer-funded Med­i­caid and food stamps should be re­warded in­stead of our govern­ment go­ing on a witch hunt.

For decades, our im­mi­gra­tion laws have not been en­forced. Il­le­gals come to our coun­try and steal re­sources that should go only to cit­i­zens and their chil­dren. Let’s get the lists of il­le­gals and their chil­dren who are re­ceiv­ing wel­fare from all states in this coun­try, and let’s start pros­e­cut­ing them.
