California Gov. Gavin Newsom and the Democrats in the state legislature want to be the first state to provide free government healthcare to illegal immigrants, paid for by taxing legal citizens unable to afford to pay for healthcare. Why in the world they would waste their time on this deal is reprehensible and beyond my comprehension.

Are they working on a deal to make sure our veterans that served this country have medical care they need, homes so they aren’t homeless, jobs so they can provide for themselves and their families? Are they working on a deal to make sure senior citizens have the medical care they need so they don’t have to choose between eating a meal and paying for life-saving medicine? Are they working on a deal making sure U.S. legal children aren’t going to school hungry or going to bed hungry?

My suggestion is this: Let’s remember what illegal means - not allowed by law. I looked in the dictionary; it doesn’t mean trample the rights of legal citizens. I can send you a dictionary if you need one. I can also include a copy of the U.S. Constitution. It seems you have misplaced yours. Please remember you were voted into office to serve the legal citizens of the USA.

Linda Marcum, LeRoy
