Letter: Those here illegally should get no government services

No services for illegal immigrants

EDITOR: The AP article, "Lawmaker wants English as official language" hits home with all the discussions and debates on immigration and points out that 31 other states have already passed similar legislation. However, I don't think it goes far enough.

No individual should have the right to demand government services in a language other than English. We also need to give law enforcement the support and training to identify and handle immigration issues. Illegal immigrants should not have access to taxpayer benefits such as food stamps or health care through BadgerCare. Public institutions of higher learning should not award financial aid to illegal immigrants and we should require them to certify annually they haven't knowingly awarded financial aid to those here illegally.

Wisconsin needs to make it clear that illegal immigrants are not welcome in the state and that they will not receive public benefits at the expense of Wisconsin taxpayers.
