DEAR EDITOR:

I am concerned about misinformation in a political ad. It says that illegal immigrants are entitled to health care, Social Security and Medicare. In reality, the government does not provide health care. You have to apply for Social Security and Medicare which would reveal citizenship status. In reality, money is withheld from workers, including illegal immigrants, but the illegal immigrants do not get any money refunded.

Illegal immigrants have actually contributed millions to our government because they don’t get refunds on money deducted from their paychecks.
