    Hi Jackie
    I don’t agree With your assessment that all illegal aliens should be given citizenship in order to alleviate our population crisis.
    Due to a myriad of financial and employment issues, I believe they should be deported ASAP.
    Additionally, I Believe In cutting the size and cost of our federal government. There is so much waste, fraud, and abuse of our tax dollars and it needs to stop. We could start by eliminating three unnecessary departments, and auditing where our money goes to. There is no rule set in stone that states the government cannot or should not have layoffs, shutdowns, and force reductions.
