Gerry Cardinale believes that America's promise should be open to everyone -- as long as they follow the rules in place to achieve citizenship. For illegal immigrants though, we need to get tougher.
Law-abiding, legal residents are spending tens of millions of dollars a year on public services for illegal immigrants who don't pay taxes. Even worse, everyday costs for these services for legal citizens increases because of the stress illegal immigrants are putting on the system. It even trickles down to car insurance, because when illegal immigrants drive without insurance, they cause prices to rise for the rest of us.
By restricting public services to legal citizens, tax dollars can be better focused on other priorities: property tax relief, education, debt reduction and more. And by enforcing our laws on issues like drivers licensing, car insurance and more, we can save tax dollars in other areas as well.
