Taxes funding a Southern invasion?

To the Editor,

I once thought that legislation was intended to promote constituents’ best interests. But sometimes politicians make laws on their own behalf, contrary to voter’s welfare. How else to explain our taxes supporting illegal immigrants? We are, in effect, financing an invasion at our southern border: tax revenue, reissued as Food Stamps and housing subsidies, is distributed to people entering the U.S. illegally.

Democratic politicians rush to greet the new arrivals at the border, explaining how best to approach the bureaucracy and avoid deportation. Proclaiming compassion for the downtrodden, their real motive is to create another dependent bloc voting reliably Democrat.
