Debate: Immigrants

Dan: US needs to control borders. Federal obligation. How far do we go providing services to those here illegally? Mother or father of citizen. Need balanced approach, but stern. Not a welfare state for those coming illegally. New Haven gives ID cards -- not a direction I chose. People in our community get required federal services regardless of status.
Ned: Kids I used to teach -- a lot were not born here. Didn't have all rights -- didn't know what they were going to do. Federal govt needs to have comprehensive immigration reform. Falling in the laps of mayors. Believe in legal immigration -- tough on illegal. Shut down opportunities at employment. Do not hire illegals. Folks here now, need health care -- give them the best we can.
