Letters to the Editor

Poor argument hurts poor

In her March 26 letter, Carleen Reilly suggests that undocumented immigrants “get much more than our poor here in the United States.” In a time when there is talk of reducing SNAP (food stamps) and other safety-net programs, we want to applaud Reilly’s concern for the poor.

Nevertheless, her inaccurate statements about immigrant benefits run the risk of fueling us-vs.-them-type thinking so that we forget that we are all God’s creatures.
