Country’s benefits ‘reserved for legal citizens’

Regarding the article “Keeping the Dream alive” [Education Nation, Jan. 3], it appears that teacher Elizabeth Villanueva is proud that she and her mother entered this country illegally and took advantage of benefits and rights reserved for legal American citizens. And now she’s proud to help other undocumented immigrants violate the nation’s laws and still enjoy those benefits reserved for legal citizens.
How sad that is!

No undocumented immigrant deserves those benefits and when they do become legal citizens (and most probably don’t), they should be penalized for those years that they were here illegally. And being a Dreamer does not give you the right to enter this country illegally. And if you do, then there a consequences — no ifs, ands or buts!
