As the Corzine administration prepares to make cuts in municipal aid and reduce services available to New Jersey's legal residents, it would be unconscionable to send out the welcome wagon for those who are here illegally, putting further strain on schools, hospitals and social services.

Extending privileges to those who broke the law to get here — and continue breaking the law by staying — sends all the wrong messages. It tacitly endorses illegal residency and violating federal laws, and it serves notice on other immigrants that the benefits of entering this country unlawfully are well worth the risks.

The illegal immigration problem has been largely ignored by the federal government, which has the responsibility for dealing with it. The Corzine administration should be pressing Washington to get a handle on the problem rather than developing state policies that will only make it worse.

I couldn't agree more.

This should have been in place 40 years ago before the shamnesty of the 80s. Free services are the draw, not jobs as we clearly see in this recession.

Agreed. Illegals are going to find out the hard way that we are fed up and they need to go home.

Absolutely! Tax-funded benefits (and anchorized parenthood) are greater magnets than jobs. As long as illegals can continue to receive freebies and give birth to freebie recipients, they will remain.

They realize if they return home, they will not have the option of either working or sitting on their butts collecting government assistance. Most definitely, giving birth in their countries of origin does not afford them any benefit. At home, they would have to sink or swim.

So would mexico's immigration laws. The corporate crooks need to shut up or self deport. They can move their company's across the border with them. It would be interesting to see how quickly their newly impoverished, collective meltdown occurs.

Small side note here: using just Chrysler LLC as an example; as they are struggling for survival as a company hence closing down redundant factories...........note that Toluca, Mexico is on the list----------its models (Dodge Journey) are being moved to the USA. Apparently; Mx is not the 'low cost' Mecca that many people (including CEO's) believe.

Exactly. The irony in all of this is whether they use cheap illegal alien labor here, or ship their factories to mexico or any other 3rd world corrupt country of their choosing, they need customers who can afford to purchase their products. Those who build them can't afford to buy them. Not only has their greed killed their loyalty and dignity, it has apparently left them without an ounce of common sense.
